Once the world became aware of A.I.D.S., these Ayds didn't stand a chance in the marketplace.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Vintage ads for the unfortunately-named Ayds weight reducing candy, 1975:
If this is really true and effective then this so called AYDS should still be in the market. Then I guess this wasn't effective to the fact that the name itself wasn't familiar.

So, that means weight loss programs and ads were there when I wasn't even born! LoL..the vintage ads look more professional than these days rather "scam" ads. I liked the newspaper ad thing.

Your so right! Once Aids was introduced, a product named Ayds didn't stand a chance. Too bad for them. Very nice look at some vintage ads as well.

I love all these old ads. Great that you've found them and that you're sharing them with us.And so today the battle of the bulge continues with various types of weight loss programs available. I think we all just have to find one that suits us - we're all different.

This is great a blast from the past. I remember my mom on some of the old diets and buying the gizmos. Lets all reach for a healthy fitter body.

I wonder if this did work. Love those vintage ads, do you like have a stack of old magazines at home because this looks really old.

This ad looks a little like the one used by proactol for their promotion.

I remember these being sold when I was a kid and maybe even into my early teens (mid 1970s or so). I wonder what the heck they had in them?

Wow these ads are so interesting. Just goes to show you the more things change, the more they remain the same. Other than the age, these ads look the same as the ones today.
