Marketing Gold (Kinda): Sugar!

This one’s a kinda of weird “Marketing Gold” but I thought it was interesting non-the-less.  I was browsing through BuzzFeed when an article came up called “One Of The Biggest Con Jobs In Advertising History, Part 2”  It involves advertisements for Sugar in the 60’s and 70’s, some of which are just amazing that people believed.  I’ve included some of my ‘favorite‘ ads below, but be sure to check out Buzzfeed for all 12 of them:

You can check out “One Of The Biggest Con Jobs In Advertising History, Part 1” which tackles “Lysol” when it was a feminine hygiene product.


Hi, I'm a marketing guy, who knows how to make websites. Every so often I see or think of things, that will be of value to others. It's either that or I just need to 'rage-vent.'
