Keep on the Sunny Side of Life Book by Kellogg's 5 1/4 inches by 7 1/4 inches. It's dated 1933 and features a colorful image of a happy family and their Terrier dog To Keep Happy, Keep Well -- a new way of living . This starts off with a section on Public Enemy Number 1 - can you guess what it is? According to Kellogg's it's constipation :-) The entire booklet touts the good health rewards of consuming bran. There are recipes, and a 7-day diet to correct constipation, as well as an Ideal Weight, According to Height listing. Super graphic of very chic 1930's women at a scale. (See second picture)
The Sunny Side of Life Book by Kellogg's 5 1/4 inches by 7 1/4 inches. It's dated 1934 and features a colorful image of a happy family and their Terrier dog To Keep Happy, Keep Well -- a new way of living . It appears to have been some kind of mailer because the back has a For like a place for an address, and Permit No. 33 U.S. Postage Paid in the upper right corner, but it's never been mailed. This has a section on The Food Road that illustrates the journey of food through the body, among other facts. Super color graphics throughout with all kinds of recipes.
The title of this small recipe book is The Plus Food For Minus Meals by Kellogg's. It's approximately 6 1/4 inches by 4 1/2 inches and is in very good condition with a small dark spot on the front cover. I listed this as 1930 but it's not dated. However, the images and graphics appear 1930s-1940s to me. There is an insignia on the inside front cover that says Accepted by the American Medical Assn. Committee On Food . All of the pictures of the recipe results are in full color! The back cover displays their various offerings of breakfast cereal and their Hag coffee. Additionally, there is an insert that boasts about the Kaffee Hag Coffee produced by Kellogg's that is 97% caffeine free. Images and information on front and back.
This tiny cookbooks is by Kellogg's titled Increasing The Farm Market. It's about 3 3/4 inches by 4 3/4 inches, and has an awesome graphic of a variety of Kellogg's products, including Pep 30% Bran Flakes, Wheat Krumbles and Kellogg's Coffee. It listed the date as 1930 for the search engine's requirements, but it's not dated. The graphics seem to indicate 1930s-1940s to me. This has not only recipes, but a table of Weights and Measures, How to remove stains, a page for Personal REcords, and all about Kellogg's - how much Corn, wheat, bran, etc. they use each day! The image shows front and back. The light streak on the front near the lettering is not a stain. It looks more like sun bleaching or fading.
Heinz Magic of Food Show recipe book from the Theatre of Food - Festival of Gas Pavilion, New York World's Fair 1964-1965. Recipes prepared by the Home Economics Department of H. J. Heinz Company Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15230. Front and back inside covers have illustrations of the various Heinz products. Full of lots of 1960 era recipes! Some staining on the front and back of cover as indicated on the picture, but otherwise, a clean copy, one staple in good shape.
This is a recipe book for early Jell-O recipes dated 1931. It is approximately 5 3/4 inches by 4 inches across. As you can see from the pictures, there are stains on the front and back cover. The stains don't go all the way through the booklet. I've included a scan of the middle pages so that you can see the clearness of the pages, as well as the slight rusting of the staples. This one includes info on the last few pages about how to mold your Jell-o, Jell-O Rules and pictures of Jell-O molds you can purchase at the bargain price of 25 cents - 6 individual sized molds or 1 large size. Also instructions for making ice cream. The back cover shows the actual box of Jell-O as it looked back then and lists Six pure fruit flavors . The price is set lower due to the staining on the cover, but it really is a nice copy despite these stains.
Jell-o is all this little cookbook pamphlet says on the front. It's about 3 1/2 by 6 1/4 inches. There is some discoloration near the staples but otherwise it's in great shape except for age discoloration (no longer bright white). It was produced by the Genesee Pure Food Co. LeRoy, N.Y. On the back inside it reads Form No. 356-1-26-04-IMM. I believe this indicates 1904. However, there are other reasons I believe it's one of the first Jello booklet published and that it's very early 1900s, if not 1904. I went to the Jello site (did you know there's even a Jello museum?) and learned that prior to 1907, there were only four flavors, and that is clearly spelled out in the booklet, on the very first page ( JELL-O is put up in four flavors, Lemon, Orange, Raspberry and Strawberry, and is sold by all grocers at 10 cents per package. ). I also learned that in 1904, two flavors were added (chocolate and cherry). . . which makes it PRE 1904, no? Also, 1900 was the first year the name Jell-o was used by Genessee Pure Foods Co. These booklets were given out by salesmen with free samples when Jell-o was first on the market.
Spiral bound Heinz Recipe Book published by H. J. Heinz Company.

Inside main cover both front and back have gorgeous full page images of all kinds of Heinz items. The edges are a little rough, and the back cover is creased along the spiral binding. Front cover has tear in left corner, as well as the right corner. Still a great copy, but I want to be honest with any flaws.

This is a soft cover spiral bound book.
Hershey Chocolate Company cooking pamphlet titled A Cookery Expert's New Recipes with an introduction by Woman's Editor from The Country Gentleman. It includes her pictures and her signature, but I'm at a loss as to what it says. The Chocolate and Cocoa Town is mentioned several times including under the aerial picture of Hershey, Pennsylvania. Lots of great recipes, and a Table of Food Values, comparing 1 pound of various Hershey products to other foods. Did you know that 1 pound of Hershey's milk chocolate has 2335 calories (at least back then!) and 1 pound of white bread has 1200 calories? I'm not sure what point they were trying to make, but it makes for amusing reading. It's just under 5 1/2 inches by 8 inches. This is undated, but I did some research on the company, the they used the Baby in the Bean logo from 1898 to 1936. That logo is evident on the picture on the back cover, so it falls sometime within that time frame. This has some problems as you can see from the pictures. The front cover and first page have what appears to be a food stain - doesn't appear to be water or grease, but it's not moldy at all, so I'm not sure what it is. The interior pages are in better condition. Even with those problems, it's nicely intact as far as the staples, with no tears except on the edge of the front page. The back cover itself would look awesome matted and framed in your kitchen! I think this is fairly rare. There's one on that famous auction site listed for $39.00 and I haven't found another anywhere.

Cookbook from General Mills dated 1934. Its title is Vitality Demands Energy 109 Smart New Ways to Serve BREAD Out Outstanding Energy Food. There is definitely foxing on the plain white pages in the front and back, but the internal pages with the recipes and pictures are not as bad. It's a good tight binding. It's approximately 9 inches by 6 inches. There are some marks on the front cover. The photo I'm displaying actually makes them look worse than they are :-) This book is all about BREAD recipes, and includes pictures and their signatures and promotional statements from the likes of Emily Post, Busby Berkeley, Claudette Colbert, Oscar of the Waldorf (premier maitre d'hotel) and none other than the original Betty Crocker! The earlier picture I could find on the internet was dated 1936, so this could be her original look!
Cookbooks titled Heinz Book of Salads, published in 1925 by H. J. Heinz Co. It's a softcover booklet about 4 1/2 inches by 7 1/2 inches, and 90 pages long. The cover has a few scuff marks (as seen on the left side of the picture) but otherwise it's in almost unused condition. There are a couple of exciting things about this cookbook. Besides the awesome graphics, front and back, and the great recipes, there is a small sheet of paper included. It is obvious from this insert that this cookbook was sent free of charge except for ...sending four cents in postage to... . The most intriguing thing is that on the back of this insert is A List of Heinz 57 Varieties. How Many Do You Know? So there you have it - the original Heinz 57 varieties! I doubt that little insert is found in many of these copies, and it's in mint condition. There is one beautiful color print on the inside cover of Fruit Ginger Ale Salad . Absolutely gorgeous print!
Nice condition on this Betty Crocker cookbook. Copyright 1978, 1969, (no other printing mentioned so I assume this is the lst edition of the new one black marker mark on upper corner of lst page. 8.10s#3289
