This 1970’s Miracle Whip Contest looked Amazing

When I go through old magazines, it feels like the 1970’s were a high point for product contests. This is a case in point. An amazing contest filled with fabulous prizes from a sandwich spread? Sure it still happens, but look at all these prizes and how eye-catching that hotel is.

This ad would have stopped me dead and sent me running to get the label off the jar.

    When I was a kid I didn’t care for travel promos with images of planes and hotels: I want pictures of Disneyland. Now, though, this ad makes me want to begin loading up a backpack with Scrooge McDuck comics and travel bingo cards.
