Buy Anacin and Get a Free Towel?

My family used Anacin for years. In fact, when I am referring to headache medicine I often call it Anacin. This almost always gets a laugh from people who remember Anacin, but were not aware that the caffeine/aspirin pill is still out there. I can’t say that I actually use Anacin much anymore, but their branding is stuck in my brain.

In the early 1970s, Anacin offered a free towel with the purchase of Anacin. The way my family went through these pill, I am surprised we did not have a closet full of these handsome linens.
