Black and white 4 3/4" x 11 1/2" ad for their Pancake Flour. The ad has a picture of a Judge leaning over his bench to break up an argument between a bickering couple. He is saying Just a moment, my children..." and he goes on to tell them that their problem could be nothing more than "a touch of breakfast trouble". It tells us that "You simply add a little water or milk to this specially prepared flour".

Full color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad for their Farine for babies. There is a picture of a cute diaper-clad young man sitting on the floor looking up with his mouth open as the headline says "Vitamin for you, Sir! Here's Pillsbury's Farina, with Vitamin B, to help you grow...from square pants to long ones!". The text talks about the Vitamin B1 and claims that this product is intended, both in taste and nutrition, for the young and the old. The ad does multi-duty by continuing on to mention their Pancake Flour and their Sno-Sheen Cake Flour.

Full color 10" x 13 1/2" ad for their Cake Mixes. There is a very large, very tasty-looking picture of a white cake with chocolate frosting and a couple of pieces missing. Above this delicacy is the headline "What, this very night?" and in the lower part of the ad is the claim "Remember - You and Ann Pillsbury can make a great team". This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

The main ingredients for making a cake with these mixes is a wish and some milk but some cakes, like the Pineapple Upside-Down Layer Cake, will need a few more but the recipe is included in this ad for the cake shown.

Full color 10" x 14" ad for their Frosting Mixes. The ad has a large picture of a young boy who has been helping his mother frost a cake. The towel she wrapped around his shirt is almost solid frosting, every finger on both hands is coated, an uninterrupted line of frosting circles his mouth and there is even a touch on and under his nose. The ad headline calls it "The homemade 'cooked' kind...now with no cooking" and the ad tells us that "Now there are 4!" with a Fluffy White, a Creamy Fudge, a Milk Chocolate and a Creamy Caramel. This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

Pillsbury 7

Full color 9 1/2" x 12 1/2" ad for their Brownie Mixes. This ad has almost nothing in the way of text but we all know that Brownies need no words. Pictured is a couple sitting on a bench in a pseudo-art gallery looking at paintings of the Pillsbury Fudge Brownie mix and the Pillsbury Nutty Brownie mix. The young girl turns to the young mans and says "I don't know much about art, but I know what I like" to which the young man has no answer because his thoughts are centered on the image of a plate of brownies and a glass of milk.

Pillsbury 8

Full color 10" x 14" ad for their Swirls Dinner Rolls which they claim are "The prettiest hot rolls that ever came to dinner". The ad has a picture that shows a tray that was just taken from the oven and it is filled with these Pillsbury Swirls. Several have been taken from the oven tray, one is standing complete and the other has been pulled apart and is sitting there waiting for inspection. The instructions say that there are two steps to preparing these for dinner. First you pop open the container and then you bake. Sounds like the kind of job that even I could do. They say that "You get eight light, tender, golden, flaky, perfectly lovely, swirly-peaked rolls". I couldn't have said it better myself.
