Full color 10" x 14" ad for their Tomato Sauce. The ad has a picture of a table set for a tasty meal with a platter holding spaghetti topped with sauce surrounded by platters holding more sauce and cucumbers cut into slices. The headline claims that "You'll love this spaghetti recipe for low-cost summer meals" and, lo and behold, there is a recipe in the ad for "Spaghetti-Hunt style". The text in the ad gives economical and flavor reasons that using Hunt's Tomato Sauce in your cooking makes sense. This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

Full color10" x 13 1/2" ad that really presents us with a problem concerning the why of Hunt's Tomato Catsup. The picture in the ad shows an empty, clean bottle with labels on it lying on it's side. There is one tomato inside of it, a large one that seems to be as big as the bottle is wide. There is another very small one and one that is nearly as big as the one inside sitting outside, waiting for their turn to "pop in". The ad starts out with the question "Don't ask us how we got the tomato in. Ask us why". It then says "We put it in so the whole world will know we use BIG tomatoes in Hunt's catsup. Big plump tomatoes make catsup taste better. Tomatoes simmered with seven select spices. Not six or four or two. SEVEN". I guess they told us.

There is a large picture with a group of tasty-looking tomatoes whole and sliced with an unopened bottle of Hunt's Tomato Catsup appearing somewhat near the back of the line. The headline tells us "There's a time in the life of a tomato that says now" and clarifies by saying "Not tomorrow. Not yesterday". It explains that this one particular day is the day that a tomato will be chosen to go into a bottle of Hunt's along with seven, exactly seven, spices. It urges you to try Hunt's, "the catsup with the big tomato taste".

The words at the top of the ad, the only words in the ad, say "If you're a rosy, plump tomato, Hunt's Catsup has an opening for you." Just below these words is a larger than life empty bottle of Hunt's Catsup. It is sitting there with the bottle turned so that the words Hunt's and Catsup are facing the reader.
