Delivering babies was the family"business, and I don't mind telling you it made me -i bundle. The missus and 1 had a second nest in the country. \X'e w e n t South every winter. Yes, we were (lying high in those days. Suddenly tlie birth rate plunged while the Vlasic Pickle rate soared k was a strange phenomenon. Non-expectant mothers began to crave Vlasic Kosher Dills. Even bachelors bought Vlasic Sweet Gherkins by the bagful. Everybody was eating more Vlasic Pickles. But I was lucky to book even one b a b y d e l i v e r y a week. The bottom fell out of the Stork Market. I was penniless! Most days! sat home just twiddling my wings. The missus finally found pan ' - time work as a tour guide · - . . · In a bird sanctuary!'but even so we lived from hand to beak. Then she showed me the want ad--Vlasic was looking for a delivery man.'A stork of genius my dear!' I whooped. I landed a job delivering Vlasic Pickles. 1 w a s n ' t w h a t Vlasic's personnel man expected. "This is no-fly-by- night operation," he said. But! impressed him with my experiene He realized I'd baby Vlasic Pickles in the delivery, just as Vlasic babies them in the growing, picking and packing. I helped make Vlasic America's #1 Pickle. From O r l a n d o to Minneapolis, from Boston tojSan Antonio I delivcr all 96 Vlasic varieties. A nd every Vlasic delivers the crunchy good taste people crave. It's not surprising Vlasic is now America's #] Picklc.That's why--£vcn if the birth rate goes up--I'm sticking with Vlasic Pickles. They're a sure thing ... Why ciptVt you switch to Vlasic Pickles too? r *· - « TM TM ·· · " TM " ~ ~ TM ·" " ~ ~ ~ ~ " ~ ~ TM ·· · · ~ " ~ ~ ^ j 7*offai\y of our 96 Vlasic varieties. ^$, i '£'£££ ', r« C t«* *Ii'*Tff 'v"\'*t'i* O I I C . v j ~ .
