To be honest I had to go roll a smoke after watching those adds, lol. I have a female friend who hates it now, she says she'd be happy to stay home while hubby works and he can mow the lawns when he gets home to save her damaging her nails, lol.I also remember that. I was 17 and my dad lit one up every time one was shown.
The one that comes to mind for me is Coca Cola, I remember when they switched from cane sugar to high fructose sugar. It has never been the same.I can think of a lot of things! The trouble is, they are still out there but have been changed, and are still bearing familiar labels. Some beauty products like Oil of Olay now have branched off into different products still with the same name. Some products have definitely gotten cheaper and/or poorly produced.
One thing that comes to mind is Healthtex clothing. This was widely advertised when I was a kid, and I could still find things for my child if I shopped in second hand shops. These clothes were purported to last for the lifetime of the child, and were reputed to be made from healthy fibers, thus the name Healthtex. The crap they are selling for children now leaves me speechless.
