Green Giant 21

Full color 10" x 13 1/2" ad that is about Green Giant Golden Sweet Corn Cream Style and their method of telling "Which one is the new Green Giant cream style corn". There is a picture in the ad that shows nine unmarked cans of Corn with this headline under the photo. The ad tells us that "If you picked the bright colored one on the left in the middle row, you know a good thing when you see it. But if you weren't able to see the difference in our picture, you'll be able to taste it. Because this is Green Giant's new quick-cooked cream style corn. It's different than all other cream style corns because it's quick-cooked to save all the fresh color and flavor. The Green Giant first introduced quick-cooking to America in his Niblets Brand whole kernel corn. Today, it's the best-loved corn in the land. Now he brings this flavor-saving, color-saving process to cream style corn. It's so different the Green Giant even patented the way he puts it up. See and taste the difference quick-cooking makes. Try new Green Giant brand Quick-Cooked Cream Style Corn".
