Instantaneous Chocolate

I love old advertisements. It's inevitable that when I'm researching one thing, I go off on tangents because I've discovered something else. This time it's: INSTANTANEOUS CHOCOLATE - THE GREATEST INVENTION OF THE AGE.

Yes, I'd support instant cocoa as one of the wonders of the modern age, especially the "add water" kind. Warming up milk can be annoyingly difficult compared to putting the kettle on for hot water.

Sliced bread is pretty nifty, too. You know the expression "greatest thing since sliced bread"? Before you had to slice your own loaf, which can be problematic if you can't cut in a straight line both across and down.

What are some other food inventions you'd like to nominate?


  1. Well, I was going to blurt out "microwave popcorn!" but now you have me thinking of all the other wonders my parents and grandparents saw for the first time? Wow, what a list of possibilities!


  2. It's true!

    And all the things we can make at home today - ice cream used to be time and labor intensive, turning a hand-crank in a bucket, etc. and now you can have a machine do it for you.

    And I agree about microwave popcorn - so simple now. :)
