Heinz Age of Dinosaurs

In 1980, the Heinz company upped the ante in their endless war against Chef Boy-ar-dee by pulling in the big guns: dinosaurs. Here's a 1980 advertisement for a special offer from Heinz Spaghetti Hoops and Noodle Doodles.

Looks like a pretty good deal. I especially like the gaping maw of that T. rex, virtually begging to be filled with delicious Noodle Doodles, a ravenous hunger that even the Chicxulub asteroid impact couldn't extinguish.

This, of course, leads to the question: anyone have one of these wall charts?

  1. I had every one of those models as a kid, I believe they were among my first dinosaur toys. Now I wonder how they were obtained.
