Faroh's Ads – Easter 1962
Here's a pair of ads that appeared in the Journal in mid-April 1962, promoting Lorain's iconic candy store – Faroh's. (Click on each of them for a larger version.)
I haven't been to the new store on Broadway yet this year. I drove by there Wednesday night, and it seemed pretty busy – which is good.
I still think they should use the classic Faroh's graphics and logo as part of their packaging, though. To me, the candy loses the nostalgic appeal if it doesn't look the same as it always did.
Strangely enough, neither of these 1962 ads include the logo with the well-known candy cane "F."
This ad (below) includes a few cameos by none other than Bugs Bunny!
