Introducing the Hershey Symphony Bar (circa 1989)

Say what you will about the lower quality of most American chocolates, I still enjoy a “fancy” Hershey bar from time to time!

Ad Council: “Take Pride In America: Clint Eastwood” (circa 1989)

WAGA-TV Atlanta 40 Year Anniversary (circa 1989)

Remember when WAGA (Channel 5) was a CBS affiliate? Things went downhill fast after the switch to Fox. Some old, familiar faces in this nice piece of nostalgic nostalgia.

Western Union: “Newlyweds” (circa 1988)

Remember back when parents paid for weddings? Yeah, that would’ve been great….

Once upon a time, children, we didn’t have the collected knowledge of all mankind available on demand from tiny computers in our pockets. If we needed to find information about a local business, we had to look them up. In a book.

You’re Not Fully Clean Unless You’re Zestfully Clean! (Zest soap circa 1988)

One of those little jingles that got caught in my head as a child and creeps its way back into my consciousness every so often.
