Classic TV: The 50s : early candy commercials

early candy commercials

"This is a camel, the ship of the desert. He can go a week without drinking any water. He something something something something. What more could a camel want?"
"I want a Clark Bar."

BOOM bi bi BOOM bi bi BOOM bi bi "I am the King of the candy bars. Chocolate covered Peter Paul Mounds."

"Chunky! What a chunka chawklit!"

"B.O.---N.O.---M.O., Bonomo. Oh, oh, oh, it's Bonomo, candy."

"M&M melts in your mouth, not in your hands"

"Good and Plenty, Good and Plenty"

"As a cereal it's dandy, for snacks it's so handy, or eat it like candy. Post Sugar Crisp."

There were other candies which I don't remember having filmed commercials, but the announcer, like Rex Marshall, held a Three Musketeers Bar or a Mars Bar, or a Mason Mint in his hand while he talked it up.

Re: early candy commercials

I remember Peter Paul doing a combined spot for Mounds and Almond Joy. "Sometimes, you feel like a nut. Sometimes, you don't."

Otherwise, other than the "M&M melts in your mouth...," which you already mentioned, I can't recall any specific slogans. I'll think.

When Peanut M&M's were introduced, one commercial featured a peanut who was sunning himself beside a swimming pool of chocolate, before he took a dip. When he got out, he reached for a yellow towel ... which he threw over himself, and it turned into a yellow sugar shell.
