Full color 9" x 12 1/2" ad that is for Durkee's Vegetable Oleomargarine and their Famous Dressings. This ad is divided into two parts, the left side of the ad being for the Oleomargarine and the right side of the ad being for their Famous Dressings. The center of the ad is totally written words by Virginia Coates and is entitled "Better Meals - And Now!". What she has written about is a recipe for Baked, stuffed fish then she talks about reducing the heat in the kitchen by cooking several foods in the oven at the same time, serving that Golden Corn with lots of Durkee's Oleomargarine and when planning your pickles and relishes for canning, having your vegetables crisp and fresh, using a good vinegar and spices of top quality. On the left hand side, the Durkee Oleomargarine side, it shows a table set with several plates of corn with a container of Durkee's Oleomargarine in the front and the text saying "Summer magic - with finer margarine! Delicious meals - when you use Durkee's Oleomargarine - famous for its mildness, sweetness and freshness. A smooth blend, made of pure vegetable oils churned with fresh pasteurized skim milk. So nutritious - 13,000 units of Vitamin A in every pound. Marvelous in cooking - delightful as a spread. Thrifty, too!" On the right side there is a bottle of Durkee's Famous Dressing and Meat Sauce surrounded by several dishes filled with different things that you could put this on. For this items, it says "Summer tricks - with zestful dressing! Durkee's Dressing is so versatile! Enjoy its spirited, tangy flavor on fish, hot or cold; on meat dishes; in cool salads. Combine it with your favorite salad dressing - its a keen mixer! This rich, golden Dressing is made of rare spices - subtly blended, enticingly different!"

Durkee 4

Full color 5" x 13 3/4" ad that brings our attention to Durkee's Spices. Pictured in the ad is a tray, just out of the oven, of Barbecued Ribs as the headline says "Ribs for "His Nibs". It then says that "Durkee's Spices give 'em Man-Sized Flavor". It then says "Want to please the lord-and-master and still save on your food budget? Then season your dishes with Durkee's Spices and Herbs. That's how continental chefs make even the most inexpensive cuts of meat take on a royal flavor. And don't stop there! Salads, soups and sauces, too, perk up as soon as you add Durkee's. The Secret: The smartest cooks owe much of their success to a complete range of spices...not just pepper and salt. So fill in those gaps in your spice shelf today. Weed out the old spices that have lost their full flavor and aroma...and replace with fresh Durkee's. And be sure you have at least these basic spices for meats and soups. Poultry Seasoning, Curry Powder, Chili Powder, Garlic Salt, Onion Salt, Paprika, Oregano, Thyme, Sage".

Durkee 2

Full color 10" x 13" ad for their Margarine. This ad introduces a contest that the company was having to send in five words that describe the superior qualities of this product. There were over 200 prizes with the First Grand Prize being a two-week vacation and a new Packard. An unusual aspect of the prizes at this time was that they promised the "Federal Income Tax Paid". The second Grand Prize was a two week vacation in Florida without the Packard. This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.
