We're Gonna "Snap" "Crackle" and "Pop" Hitler's Butt!

Promotional Cookbooks and regular newsletters for those that signed up were extremely popular in the first half of the 21th century. Who doesn't like to get mail, right? Food companies were thrilled to send their recipe suggestions for anyone that wanted to cook with their product, When I go looking for old paper I have found lots of these items. I always prefer the ones that make a specific link to a period in history. These post-able tear-off cartoons are clearly WWII advertising propaganda that cam along in a newsletter full of recipes and tips from Kellogg's own fictitious spokesperson Barbara B. Brooks. 
You can read more about Barbara in a post on this blog here. Now on to the toons:



There are many more of these, because this was a monthly newsletter. These are the only samples I can find. If you know anymore about these, please leave something in the comments or reach out to me by email.
