Listed below are links to weblogs that reference 1948 A&P ad with gross recipe:
These recipe ads are some of my favorites on your blog. Keep them coming! It's amazing how disgusting many of the recipes are.

Meatloaf with fruit? :P It looks like it's sitting on a coconut cake, but I think it's supposed to be the "Fluffy Whipped Potatoes." How much bleach did they add to get them so white?
The sautéd corn in tomatoes sounds good. Wish they had shared that recipe.

I'm convinced that all these revolting recipes from the 40's & 50's are nothing more than a government experiment testing the gullibility and compliance of post war Americans. I mean really, what sane person would come up with these culinary atrocities and expect people to eat AND enjoy them.
I wish my grandparents were still alive so I could ask them if they ever actually ate this kind of stuff.

I do not understand the fascination back then to mold everything as if it would make it taste better? The ham in the bundt shape looks (wth?) looks like it is on top of white cake frosting..so, so wrong
