Favorite Food Commercials?

Do you have one?

Either print, TV or radio?

Current or past.

One of my favorites was from the Got Milk? series, where the guy stuffs his face with cookies and realizes his glass of milk is empty and then realizes he's in hell ...

  1. Okay, my favorite one of all time... "Peter!!!" When I see that Folgers commercial, I know Christmas is just around the corner! It gives me warm fuzzies! :-)

    Next was a short run of a Dairi Queen commercial advertising chicken strips. The chicken is literally stripping on the stage... it doesn't matter how old I am, that commercial could always make me laugh! I think it must have offended some people though, because it didn't last very long.

    And then I also really liked the Chips A'hoy commercial with the creme sandwich cookies where they're dancing on a bus singing "smack dab in the middle"! Yep, I'm a dork!

      Oh yeah. Those Peter commercials. Saw one this year and it warmed my heart a little bit. I hate Christmas in general, but those commercials are cute.

        I love the Peter commercial--it actually brings tears to my eyes since I haven't spent Christmas with my parents since Carter was president.

    2. I have no idea why but I always loved the Coke, "I'd like to teach the world to sing...." commercial. It's always a great sign of summer.

      Most American beer commercials.

        You can't help but love Real Men Of Genius!

      2. The Jack in the Box Chipotle commercial where he couldn't pronounce "chipotle". hee hee, makes me giggle everytime.

        1. One of my favorites was the recently resurrected Oscar Mayer B-O-L-O-G-N-A commercial where the little boy with dark curly hair is singing the OM Bologna Song. I think the little boy in it is just too cute! Loved him saying "How's that?" with a big grin on his face at the end of the commercial before he takes a big bite of his bologna sandwich.

          1. The original Diamond Walnuts commercial that uses "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" from the Nutcracker.

              In the New York area, the Carvel commercials when Tom Carvel was still alive.

                    Excellent! I almost forgot about Cookie Puss LOL

                    Thanks for the memories...
