heck-yeah-old-tech:

Spry shortening was introduced in 1936 and was discontinued in the 1970s, and their spokesperson was Aunt Jenny. But there was more than one Aunt Jenny, it turns out. The one everyone knows, the older lady in the lower image, replaced a younger one who likely (similar to Betty Crocker) never existed and was only a drawing.

Recently I found this 1953 cookbook at an estate sale for 50¢ (you can own one too for more) and that’s the first thing I noticed, Aunt Jenny’s youth.

Here are a couple other pages about her hijinx:
• Thriftshop Romantic’s The Spryford Wives, and
Lileks' Gallery of Regrettable Food's Aunt Jenny’s Real-Life Stories.
