I didn’t think I was going to have anything interesting for today, but luckily I found this great advertising sign yesterday.
From 1977 is this cardboard sign that once got the attention of supermarket shoppers. It let them know that they could get a free half gallon of milk with just a purchase of two Hydrox cookie packages and one can of Quik.
Wow! Now that sounds like a good deal.
The best part about the sign is that it features not only the Quick Bunny, but also Drox, the Hydrox mascot.
Hmm . . . I don’t know? I don’t see any arms or legs on Drox. He doesn’t wear a chef’s hat either. I don’t remember the commercials, so if he didn’t act or sound like the Doughboy, I think that lawsuit was kind of unreasonable. Anyway, Hydrox cookies were discontinued back in 1996.
The sign is a little beat up, but it was a cheap price and I’m always amazed when things like this survive when most of them were tossed into the garbage the day after the promotion.
