1954 – Kroger Coffee

A cup and a smile

In my search for mid-century coffee kitsch, I found this sweet ad from Kroger. The grocery store sold to mid-century housewives who wanted variety and value. Here they are selling their store brand of coffee.

Kroger coffee in 1 pound and 2 pound tins.
Your choice of regular, drip or extra fine!

The ad appeared in the August 1954 edition of Family Circle magazine. The 1/2 page ad gives us living in the 21st century a reason to smile while we enjoy our morning cup.
