Funny Face Drink Mix Ad

In 1964, Kool-Aid was king of the powered drink mixes, so Pillsbury came out with it's own drink mix called Funny Face. The thing was, Funny Face was pre-sweetened, first with this calcium cyclamate, which unfortunately gave rate cancer, then saccharine. They also had unsweetened versions, like Kool-Aid.

The drink flavors were all given funny characters and names, some not so politally correct, like Injun Orange and Chinese Cherry. These names were soon changed.

Eventually Pillsbury sold Funny Face and another smaller company who eventually discontinued the product.
