  1. Yes, the Fighting Sugar Beets of America! But it was Amalgamated that won the war (against U&I)

  2. That’s Grant for you, folks — loyal to his Amalgamated, even in the face of an unbearable onslaught of U&I ads! :)

  3. Ardis, with almost all the ads you post I seem to sense a common theme. Or is it just me? … :-)

  4. Oh, I’m sure it’s just you, Gary!

    (I posted a lot of different Mormonish ads early on. Somehow the U&I ads became a running joke, so much so that “sugar ads” have their own heading in the Topical Guide. I feel that this significant facet of our common heritage has been woefully neglected elsewhere; don’t you?)

  5. Agreed. And I’m by no means complaining. I well remember those heavy U & I sugar bags and having to lug them from store to car to kitchen.

  6. Thank you for that important contribution to Keepa’s ongoing study of the issues, Gary.
