Best and worst food and cooking-related product slogans?

I don't pay much attention to slogans but I happened to catch a glimpse of the side of a bottle of Bar Keeper's Friend this morning and noticed the slogan "once tried, always used" and my immediate thought was "wow, that's so true." What are the best and worst food and cooking-related product slogans?

  1. The commercial was pushing an individually packaged breakfast cereal with a milk box included so your kids can get their own breakfast. I can't remember exactly what the slogan was, but it might as well been "because your life is so important and you are way too busy to make your kids a bowl of cereal, buy this product and let the little pissers fend for themselves!!"

    1. With a name like Smuckers, it must be good jam.

        What about Mangled Baby Ducks? THAT must be good jam!

          lol...gotta love Saturday Night Live. The bass-o-matic comes to mind.

      2. 'Prego... its in there.' If I use a jarred sauce I use this one because I like the balance

          1. There was a local butcher shop near me whose slogan was "You can't beat our meat!" - I'm not kidding.

            Every time I hear the slogan for Smuckers, it make me think "with a price like that, it *better* be good..."

            I always hated the Oscar Meyer one - "my baloney has a first name..." because it made me think of Wilbur from Charlotte's Web.

                Similar butcher story-- mine claimed "Nobody Beats Pete's Meat." Pete was a great guy. I used to sometimes buy a burger's amount of ground beef and invariably got asked, "What, ya havin' a party tonight?" And I invariably laughed and went home in a good mood.
