Carnation Milk 65 Years Ago

A little old lady from Wisconsin had worked in and around her family
dairy farms since she was old enough to walk, with hours of hard work
and little compensation.

When canned Carnation Milk became available in grocery stores in
approximately the 1940s, she read an advertisement offering $5,000 for
the best slogan. The producers wanted a rhyme beginning with 'Carnation
Milk is best of all.'

She thought to herself, I know all about milk and dairy farms.. I can
do this!  She sent in her entry, and several weeks later, a black limo
pulled up in front of her house.

A man got out and said, 'Carnation LOVED your entry so much, we are
here to award you $2,000 even though we will not be able to use it!'
