1963 Aunt Jemima Ad

1963 The Swellest Sisters

The baby boomer generation was from 1946 to 1964. This means that the oldest baby boomers were teenagers in 1963 when this ad was published.  A big sister serving breakfast to her younger siblings was likely a common scene during this time in history.  Ads such as this were common in popular go-to’s like Good Housekeeping for busy stay-at-home moms raising a family. Brands like Aunt Jemima were deemed as necessary for modern families.

By the way, pecans and waffles sound delicious. Yum.
