A Quaker Oatmeal Ad That Must Have Worked
YouTube user WNED17 recently uploaded some fantastic retro-Toronto-centric gems. These clips have brought back a tonne of memories for me, so I'm going to feature them one by one over the next few weeks.
Today I'm posting an ad from 1983 for Quaker Oatmeal. I was nine years old in 1983 and I remember this ad like it was yesterday.
These Quaker instant hot cereal packages were in my home growing up, and I loved the regular flavour with a little 2% milk and some brown sugar sprinkled on top. I was eating this stuff in 1983 and I'm still eating it today. As I type this I can see a box of Quaker oatmeal on my desk. This box is maple & brown sugar flavour, which didn't exist back in 1983. Still, it's safe to say this ad worked and now I'll be singing that damn song for the rest of the day.
