Full color 7 3/4" x 11" ad for their Crackers. There is a picture of a little girl trying to entice her doll to partake of a cracker pulled from a nearby box of Ritz. As she holds the cracker near the drawn-on mouth she urges "Mother says NOBODY can resist 'em...". The text explains that the world-wide popularity of Ritz is due to the fact that "there has never been a cracker as delicious" and goes on to describe the texture and taste of this product. The ad has two other small pictures, one showing a gathering of adults at a table with a plate of Ritz with cheese captioned "Popularity Secret!" and the other is of two children sharing a box of Ritz and washing them down with glasses of milk.

Full color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad for their Crackers. The ad has a picture of a table that is spread with several tasty options, all centered around the box of Ritz Crackers that is placed at the top. In addition to the box of Ritz Crackers are a plate filled with these crackers, a dual-section bowl with sauces and another bowl that is filled with things that I would not associate with a Ritz Cracker but then people did things differently sixty years ago. The text talks about how having Ritz with your meal will brighten things up and claims that "Nothing tastes as good as Ritz - but Ritz.".
