Desitin, the all purpose healer. Desitin soothes the rashy bottom, the cracked heels, and most recently discovered, eases the pain of teething. This picture does make for a good ad for Desitin and seeing it makes me think about how many other companies my kids are unknowingly advertising for. I know Legos and Star Wars action figures are certainly being represented. Cheez-its, Keebler Graham Crackers, Cheerios, and occasionally Gerber Puffs have all managed to at least make the back ground of many a baby picture setting.
By the way, I never knew I had a Graham Cracker preference until the birth of M. and E. They kept offering them (Keebler brand) to me as a snack while I recovered and wow, yummy! I never really thought of myself as a Brandist but now that I think of it, and it seems to come with getting older, there are a few items I prefer to have certain brands of…
Mayonaise: Best Foods
Bacon: Oscar Mayer
Apples: Fuji or Gala (are those considered brands?)
Rice: Botan Calrose rice
Diapers: Huggies (Pampers for newborn-6 mos.)
Wipes: Costco’s brand
Chocolate: Milka or Lindt
Chocolate Chips: Nestle
Laundry Soap/and dryer sheets: Tide and Bounce
I’m afraid the older I get, the more preferences I’ll have but I’ll try to keep an open mind and taste bud. I think when I get really old, my preferences will most likely gravitate to what tastes best mashed up in a blender.
