You won’t believe these ads from the past! The series of images show actual ads from the 1960s and 1970s that prove we’ve come a long way, baby! They are unhealthy, sexist, and downright dangerous…but a fun and incredible reminder of life fifty-some years ago.

Two-Four-Six-Eight! What does she appreciate? Tooth decay! Obesity! Diabetes! We know artificial sweeteners are bad, but this ad is actually telling parents to get their kids all hyped up on sugar because it is a good way for them to get through the day. Racing heart? That’ll get Jenny in the spirit for the pep rally! Jittery? Bounce it off at trampoline class! Sugar crash? Maybe she will get a good night’s sleep. Then she can wake up in the more, refreshed and ready to start another sugar-fueled day. You go, Jenny!
