Classic Sugar Advertisements

From MotherJones, this rather amusing collection of 10 classic ads from the sugar and cereal industries. Lots of wonderful pseudoscience, and a look at how “just 18 calories in a teaspoon of sugar” was passed off as a great energy source at one time. There were a lot of good ones, but I’m just featuring this one because frosted flakes are still a favorite for many people.
