    I don't know all these commercials, lol !

    ReplyDelete

  15. Thanks for the visit :-D My husband was born and raised in the Colorado/Wyoming area. I'm getting to know it through a visit every 2 years or so, but one day we plan to move out there (been planning it for 13 years now...)

    I got most of these. Especially the Bonus question (that one was too easy!).

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hi!

  17. Anni,

    I knew almost all of them. I didn't get slinky or Dr. Pepper. We never used to have Dr. Pepper here but it's come in recent years. Brandon loves it. I hate the stuff. LOL My drink of preference when I was young was Coke and then Coke Classic. Now I stay away from soft drinks most of the time.

    Thanks so much for the fun. Your posts always delight me. Such a nice quiz. Be sure to have a wonderful day, my friend.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  18. This was fun, although I didn't know a single one. That happens when you live in the old continent, ho ho ho!

    ReplyDelete
  19. LOL! I got every bloomin' one of 'em -- and I haven't watched television in HOW MANY years??? Man, those are OLD!!! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Your quiz confirms it ... I'm officially OLD! Boy, what I wouldn't give for "the man who wears the star ... the big, bright Texaco star" these days. I sure miss full-service stations!

    Thanks for the fun!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Got them all so I guess that means I am officially a retro commercial nerd, lol! Thanks this was fun - and the fact that I have a retro pop culture blog would have meant missing one was unforgivable!

    My TT (on that retro pop culture blog!) is 13 Things I Wanted For Christmas As A Kid but didn't get.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Aw! I got them all right then you gave us the answers.

    I still got them all right.

    Merry Christmas from She Lives!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh how fun! I missed 1,6,and 12, not too bad.

    Thanks for a very fun TT.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh, my gosh!!! I LOVE your new header!!! How charming it is!!!

    Believe it or not, I did get most of your quiz answers correct! I remembger Dinah Shore singing the Chevrolet song when I was a kid...always at the end of her TV show every week. That was fun to go back to some of those things!

    If I don't get back again before Christmas, I want to wish you the happiest of holidays!

  33. That was fun. I got almost all of them. Should have gotten them all, they were familiar but I just couldn't think that fast. Should have gotten that Taco Bell one. I'm sure my son would have. He eats there every day. He loves the food and he loves the price.

  47. 1. Is it bad that the first brand I thought of was foreign? (Toyota) Then I thought of that super annoying ad with John Mellencamp's song in it which I have erased from my brain. I'm guessing Ford.

    3. Green Giant
    4. Gross! I'm thinkin's Crest?
    5. Folger's (if they say so)
    6. Slinky!
    7. Band-Aid brand - Band-Aid
    8. Charmin
    9. Pepper (not my favorite fizzy)
    10. Crap - can't remember - ugh - Leggs or something? Brain fart.
    11. N-E-S-T-L-E-S, Nestles
    12. Oh no - not good with cars. Is that Chrysler?
    13. Nyquil - a GODSEND!
    Bonus = Taco Bell
