HOLY APPLE PIES, BATMAN! Vintage Food Advertising
Does anyone else remember these really great Hostess Cupcake Ads from the DC comic books of the 1970's & 80's?? This one features the Classic Batman Villian The Penguin in a a caper called "The Cuckoo Cuckoos"! These used to crack me up the way they tricked you into reading the product advertisement....they usually had some nice artwork & a funny story but at the end they always sales-pitched Hostess Snacks while arresting the criminal, too funny! As always you can click the small picture for a larger photo...and remember to CHECK OUT the BAT-BLOG ARCHIVES for more vintage ads & old toys!
