1959 – Pream H.C. Moores

Coffee with a side of history

Here’s one more post about mid-century coffee. So far this month we’ve seen kitschy close-ups of happy or inquisitive women from the 1950’s holding a cup of coffee. We’ve seen this one . . .

But men like coffee too. So here is a man looking inside his coffee cup. It comes from the April 1959 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine. He is here to sell Pream powdered cream for coffee or recipes.

Pream was a product from H.C. Moores company out of Columbus Ohio. The company didn’t last past the mid-century. Their product which sold under the name of Pream is similar to the Coffee Mate product that is sold today. However, Pream was not a milk substitute. It was a milk product sold in powdered form.

Pream is the one that says fresh – never wasted money by spoiling.
