Full color 10" x 6 1/2" ad that tells you how to use cans of Franco-American Spaghetti to prepare lunch for your children. The ad claims that it's "So Good - So Easy - It's the Perfect Family Dish!" and, in the view that it is showing, it does look good. The ad then says a "School Day Lunch...Ready in 5 Minutes! Menu. Franco-American Spaghetti, Toast with Jelly, Sliced Apples and Cookies, Milk There's a delicious, hearty lunch you can serve the youngsters in next to no time. And wait till they taste that good Franco-American Spaghetti...tender cooked to perfection in a luscious sauce of juicy, vine-ripened tomatoes, sharp well-aged Cheddar Cheese and eight other choice ingredients. Remember, too, that Franco-American is quick to fix - off the stove in 5 minutes. Yet it costs only pennies a portion. Franco-American Spaghetti is also a good base for special dishes. For example, Star-Kist Tuna baked with Franco-American makes a delightfully different mealtime treat. Get several cans of Franco-American Spaghetti soon".

Franco-American 3

Full color 5" x 13" ad for their Spaghetti Sauce with Meat. There is a picture of a female hand holding a ladle and pouring this product over a plate of spaghetti noodles. The headline says "Beef you can see! You can taste! in this Real Italian-style Spaghetti Sauce!". The text claims that it will be "Ready in 4 minutes" and that it "costs less than homemade" before it describes the taste of this product.

Franco-American 1

Full color 9 3/4" x 14" ad that is for Franco-American Spaghetti with Meatballs. The ad has the words introducing the product, "New! Italian-Style Spaghetti with 6 Meatballs" and, then, on the left it has a drawing of an Italian restaurant worker holding up an oversized can of Franco-American Spaghetti with Meatballs and, on the right, there is a picture of a bowl full of a very delicious looking Spaghetti with Meatballs dinner. This is described as being "Superbo - This is our new thin-strand spaghetti with not 2, not 4, but 6 meatballs. Spicy and succulent. Beefy. And a sauce with an accent unmistakably Italian-style. Good solid nourishment for your family". The ad has the words Franco-American written very solidly at the bottom of the ad.

Franco-American 4

Full color 10" x 14" ad that urges you to "Now Eat Out at Home" by eating "New! Italian-Style Spaghetti with 6 meatballs" from Franco-American. They have a large bowl of spaghetti that has five, no six meatballs in it and it is waiting for you and a friend to begin to eat it. The ad says "Now, from Franco-American comes new and extra fancy thin-strand spaghetti with 6 meatballs (not just 4). Yes, beefy, delicately seasoned meatballs - with a sauce that's nice and nippy, Italian style. Lots of good eating, lots of smiles at dinner". It shows one of the cans from that time period and it looks different than what I have seen.
