Products you don't see commercials for any more

I realized tonight I don't see commercials for nylons any more. I was remembering the Sheer Energy commercials.

What else don't they advertise anymore?

    There are many cereal commercials missing from the circuit. Life, Apple Jacks, Honey Comb, etc.

    I don't see commercials for Toys R Us anymore.

    And Fifi, you are right about the cereal. Lucky Charms? Coco Puffs? Coo-OO-kie Crisps?

    *sniff* at the nylon commercials. I liked them.

    Salon Selectives. ( :oops: They still make it don't they?)

    Boboli pizzas.

    I was googling to see if some of the cereals were still made, and many are. You really do not see the largest cereal brands advertising like they used to. At least not as heavily.

    One more pantyhose side note. I love to mess with kids and say, "back in the day, pantyhose were hatched!!" Completely confuses them.

    Salon Selectives is indeed still being made. I have 3 liter bottles (as in 3 different liter bottles) that I bought for $3/piece at Walgreens. Doesn't do much for me, but I like the smell, so I'll use it if I don't need much moisture for the day or if I'm straightening my hair as 2 that I have are the Sleek line.

    Mighty Dog. Maybe they don't make that dog food anymore. Come to think of it, I can't remember the last time I seen an Alpo commercial.

    (Lol... Seen! Are y'all paying attention?)

    Not an actual product, but I haven't seen Bob Vila in any commercials lately. Is Bob Vila his own brand?

    Weren't there Silly Putty commercials, too? And Hot Wheels, I haven't seen those lately, either.

  • Fifi.GFifi.G Posts: 15,490Registered Users
    I was thinking about silly putty and hot wheels on my way home. Also, the race car track you put together and races toy cars on. I believe they had a few different names. You could lean part of the track against a wall... That was an awesome toy.

    And apparently, given all the coverage, Easy Bake Oven commercials are a mess now. I have not seen one with my own two eyes in many years. I had no idea they were pink now. They looked like ugly early 80's microwaves the last time I saw one.

    I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

    Minxy, I think it was "We wear short shorts....." (I used to sing it at my stepsister, when she walked around with Nair on her legs).

    Rice krispies was still advertising about 20 years ago. They did an opera parody that went "No more Rice Krispies!" My x- husband walked around singing it for days. It really was funny. I can't remember what Snap, Crackle and Pop did; maybe they were the singers?

    Are California Raisins still being advertised?

    Commercials for this are still on. I see them all the time. Now they will automatically turn the lights on when you or someone else entered your home! (Cue clip of burglar breaking window and running away). LOL

    I also see sanitary napkin commercials all the time. Usually Always.

    There's not as many PSA's as there was when I was a kid. Remember the "this is your brain on drugs" then there was Sport Billy and Sport Lilly talking about the benefits of exercise. There was a commercial about asthma, and the Boy Scouts.

    And does anyone else remember The Church of Later Day Saints (The Mormans) ran a bunch of ads about morals. Super heavy handed but damn did they have some catchy tunes "when you tell one lie, it leads to another/ when you tell two lies to cover each other/when you tell three lie Oh brother! "
    They also had an Opera about lying staring a young Alfonso Ribeiro "Who broke my window/why is my stomach so nervous and queasy"
