Who does this? Anyone hand feed that special someone in your life their morning Borden's coffee?
George Washington instant coffee was a trailblazer in the instant coffee business....however, it never made it across the Delaware.
But, George Washington was no fool, nor was he a wimp. Men everywhere were learning how to boil water. What an epiphany!
Hot or cold, instant coffee was becoming a big hit in the 40's.
Looks like instant Chase & Sanborn finally made it down the Pike in the 50's!
But alas, in the 60's it was Nescafe who introduced the New Jet Process that explodes pure coffee.
Grandma J can tell you, instant coffee had nothing on plain old instant milk......
Betty Crocker introduced her brand in the 40's boasting the fact that it didn't spoil or curdle.
Grandma J can't help but wonder how it shrunk that woman on the right to make her short enough to play a child in that ad. An added bonus is the recipe for swedish meatballs.
Of course MIL-KO instant milk was compared to water, and cheaper too, but with only half the calories of whole milk. All Grandma J can say is no kidding. Grandma J remembers her mother trying on numerous occasions, to jump on the instant milk bandwagon in the 50's with Carnation instant milk. She should have stuck with it for baking and cooking only.....it never went over in a big way with her family for drinking or cereal. It tasted awful and it looked like dirty yellowy water.
Did you grow up with instant milk? Do you drink instant coffee?
