The link above ties to an online archive of one mans (Dan Godsell) collection of food packaging from the 1950s-1970s. It’s a little click-heavy but the treasures you will find are well worth it.
It’s fascinating to examine the packaging in the context of what is happening in food today. What role did early packaging play in changing our relationship to food? Do you notice that there are no health claims? After clicking 30 or 40 images I also didn’t find any claims of “easy” or “fast” though there were several options for “free toy inside.”
