Old shocking food commercials

Old shocking food commercials

What is obvious now wasn’t back then. And what isn’t obvious today will be one day ! I hope…

I see so many ads that are for me, as a nutritionist, OBVIOUSLY very untrue.

Selling benefits that don’t exist.

Health claims that are hiding something else…

Manipulation of social standards.

Targeting vulnerable kids….  And the long list goes on…

I will very soon create another list of shocking food commercials… but next time it will not be vintage!

For now, look at these marketing gems : 

7up family drink ad

7 up a family drink ! Wait, it gets worse… you’ll see in a few seconds. Scroll down.

coca cola bad for you

Is Coca Cola healthy ? Obviously it was presented that way back in those days. It says  here : ‘Coca Cola is a delightful, a palatable and healthful beverage. It relieves fatigue and is indispensable. It relieves mental and physical exhaustion.‘ yeah yeah…

coca cola vintage ad

Here you go ! These two are masterpieces !
I really would love to know if these are 100% true or someone somewhere is laughing at this joke. I hope it is a joke !
Update: Well, I have checked and it seems like the ‘How soon is too soon’ ad is not real but that the 7 up one is.

drink it up 7 up for babies

lard ad oldYou feel unhappy ? Lard is the solution. Didn’t you know?

old ad 7up

Once the baby is hooked you can continue giving him 7 up during his childhood!

coca cola false health claims

Coca Cola targeting the rich and privileged. ‘Beneficial results’. ‘All Healthy and happy’

sexist old ad kenwood

One thing I have to say for these two ads: Thank you feminists!

sexist old ad

 

sugar lobby ad

Sugar lobbyists

vintage ad food

hahaha… ok, yes. No comment.

Well I hope you enjoyed these old-school ads.

Food marketing hasn’t changed that much, it is just more subtle now.

I will come up with a new list hopefully very soon.

Also, did you know that I am a registered Nutritionist who can help you achieve long term healthy eating habits ?

I suggest you discover what I call : The Club . It is an online step by step nutrition program.

All the best to you,
