Science Research Associates

It's back to school time. And what better to look at education brands. Here, a reading kit from Science Research Associates. This was a company, once owned by IBM, would turn students into budding scientists to beat the Soviets in the Space Race.

The company introduced the SRA Reading Laboratory Kit in 1957. The boxes, which fit perfectly with new education fads like Open Classrooms, had multiple choice questions on color coded cardboard inserts. IBM bought the company in 1964; it is now part of McGraw Hill.

Trash Container Brand Lasts the Decades

Brands last for decades. Here, the Sanitary Hid-a-Way Container, made by the Bay Foundry and Machine company of Tampa. It's buried in the ground at the Jamaica Royale resort on Siesta Key in Sarasota, Florida. It dates from at least the late 1950s or early 1960s, when the modern-style resort was built. Each apartment unit has a container. It is not only used to hide the containers, but during storms trash cans won't fly. The Hid-a-Way is also good in park areas, where bears and such can get into trash.

Cigarette Machine FOUND in Florida

A cigarette machine? Yes, they do exist. But they are not common, and are only allowed in places where minors don't go. We won't tell you the resort where this one is, just to keep this museum exhibit safe for posterity and busybody bureaucrats.

Where's Mr. Zip?

This Mr. Zip is on a post office box on Lincoln Road Mall in Miami. We hadn't realized he had disappeared until we saw him again. Perhaps he has won his battle for Americans to use the five-digit Zip Code. Was he ever enlisted in the battle for the "plus 4" Zip?

How Much Do We Miss Rexall?

So dang much! Here, a pharmacy on the main drag in Bar Harbour, Maine. This was a regular sign across the United States on every main street. Brands like Rexall (and Cardinal) allowed local pharmacists to run their own shows, but be linked up with a national brand.

The Rexall brand is still big up north in Canada, part of Katz, as a pharmacy brand. In the U.S., Rexall nutritional supplements are still sold, and sister company Rexall Sundown is still around.

Snickers Goes Retro

Found. Nostalgic versions of Snickers and 3 Musketeers. Here, the packaging says "The Three Musketeers." We submitted a question to the press office but we got some form reply, so we can only guess Mars is up to some fun. Regular Snickers and 3 Musketeers are in the checkout line, alongside.

Dieline, the product packaging blog by Andrew Gibbs, asked its readers about the packaging, and they said it harkens back to their 1930s look. The star comes from the old Mars logo.

London Telegraph's List of Missed Brands

We feel badly we didn't bring this list to your attention sooner. It is a list of brands that Britons want back, published in March 2008 by London's Daily Telegraph. The saddest name on the list? Great Britain! Where did it go? We miss it too!

One recommendation is to put Smarties back in tubes! We don't get over to GREAT BRITAIN as much as we would like, so we never realized they weren't in tubes. Someone, please tell us it isn't so.

A few from the list include:

  • Keiller's butterscotch
  • Paragoric sweets
  • Pan Yan Pickle
  • Haywards Military Pickle
  • Top Deck Cider Shandy
  • Schweppes ginger cordial
  • Milady toffees
  • Flake tapioca
  • Mr. Kipling coffee
  • Cadbury's Swiss Gateau
See our new site at www.brandlandusa.com.

Switzer's Licorice Has A New Twist

We hear Switzer's Licorice is going strong, and fans of the 100-year-old iconic candy can be satisfied with life again. The St. Louis company still sells its products, which are more tart and less syrupy than Twizzlers. Thank goodness.

Switzer Candy Company, Inc., 27 North Gore Ave., St. Louis, Missouri, www.switzercandy.com

BrandlandUSA's Favorite Commercial EVER!



Well, maybe we like the Folger's Christmas commercial. But still, Valleydale is better. It's a simple jingle, whereby pigs, marching as if in a high school parade, sing the glories of Valleydale pork products. Growing up in Virginia, it was iconic, and certainly we children missed the fact of the happiness of pigs going to slaughter! No matter. We loved Valleydale. Valleydale bacon is, and was, better, if only because of a simple

The song goes, "Valleydale Sausage. Valleydale Bacon. All hail Valleydale."

Huntley and Palmers Returns to Britain

Huntley & Palmers Empire Assorted

An old brand of the British Empire has returned. Huntley & Palmers, founded in 1822 and proclaimed to be "The Most Famous Biscuit Company in the World" is back on British shelves. The company was started by Quaker Joseph Huntley in Reading, Berkshire. Brits apparently remember products with names such as Milk & Honey, Breakfast Biscuits and Chocolate Olivers; old versions can be seen at the Museum of Reading at www.huntleyandpalmers.org.uk.

The company and its trademarks were acquired in 2002 by a marketing director of Jacobs Bakery, which owned Huntley and Palmers. It was sold again and in 2008 returned as a gourmet and gift specialty brand. "Our aim is to return Huntley & Palmers to its position as one of the most respected biscuit companies in the world," managing director Harry Freeman is quoted as saying on the company website.

Perhaps now Virginia's FFV Bakeries can come back to life?

Huntley and Palmers Limited, PO Box 7830, Sudbury, Suffolk CO10 8WE, United Kingdom, 01440 788873, sales @ huntleyandpalmers.com

Mary Kitchen Goes Hormel

Found recently on the grocery shelves. A new packaging for Mary Kitchen Roast Beef Hash, with Hormel recently added to the top. Mary Kitchen is the best brand of Roast Beef Hash; whenever a can is opened, happiness ensues at the breakfast table. The question is whether this is a good thing or not.

It is not Hormel Roast Beef Hash, it is Mary Kitchen Roast Beef Hash by Hormel. Of course, it is a semantic difference, but that's what branding is all about.

Mickey Mouse in the Public Domain?

A recent article in the Los Angeles Times, reprinted in the Orlando Sentinel, reported on the fact that the copyright on Mickey Mouse might be in doubt. The story by Joseph Menn, called "Disney's rights to young Mickey Mouse may be wrong" reports that Film credits from the 1920s reveal imprecision in copyright claims that some experts say could invalidate Disney's long-held copyright.

To us, we think it's not a big issue. Obviously, copyrighted works will fall into the public domain eventually, and that will (or should) certainly happen to the early Mickey shorts. But the more important reality is that for the films to have any real value, they need to be sold and marketed under the Disney banner. Just say some fellow wanted to copy these old shorts and sell them on DVDs. They would be mere copies, not made from the masters, and would not be able to be sold under the Disney and Mickey Mouse brand, which is what makes them magic.

We are curious what others have to say on this issue.

Elsie the Cow Arrives at Wal-Mart

Borden is back, big time. We spotted a large Borden cheese display at the Osprey, Florida Wal-Mart on Tamiami Trail, and it made us want to learn more about how the Borden dairy brand is doing.

Borden is doing great. This is great news. Go to the website www.FriendsofElsie.com, and readers can learn about how the all-American farmer co-op, the Dairy Farmers of America, get the milk from 18,000 individual farms so that they can make Borden cheese. On the Friends of Elsie website, American farm families like the Pfeifers of Bucyrus, Ohio are profiled. It is a brilliant website, and watching it makes you happy to be American.

This year has seen a big push with Elsie, the Borden cow that appears on the cheese packages. In 2008, the cooperative launched the Friends of Elsie campaign, which has all the facts and history of Elsie the cow.

You can visit the grave of Elsie in Plainsboro, New Jersey.

Rockwell International Brand Survives

At the Kennedy Space Center's U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame, the Rockwell International brand is omnipresent. Rockwell, of course, built the Apollo capsule and has a long list of aviation achievements. For NASA, it built control panels, as well. While many pieces of Rockwell are now part of Boeing, thankfully the Rockwell name survives.

Joy Ice Cream Cones, Founded 1918

We love great regional brands that have survived the conglomerate era and have kept their independence amongst overwrought graphics, market research and such. Sixty to a box, we love Joy ice cream cones.

According to the Joy website, the company was founded by a Lebanese immigrant, Albert George, along with other family members. They got some second-hand cone-baking machines and started the George & Thomas Cone Company in 1918. It is still in family hands, and is run as an ESOP. It is the largest ice cream cone company in the world, baking over 1.5 billion cones/year.

According to their website, the offer tours at special times of the year for large groups:

  • Hermitage Facility - Tours are given only during the months of August, September, October and November for parties up to 15.
  • Flagstaff Facility - Tours are given only during the months of September, October, November, December, January, and February for parties up to 15.
Information at: 3435 Lamor Road Hermitage, PA 16148 U.S.A., 724-962-5747; Joy Cone Company Arizona office, 2843 W. Shamrell Blvd.Flagstaff, AZ 86001 U.S.A.P: 928-774-0225

Santa Fe Railroad Lives

Missing the old dome liners that ran from Los Angeles to Chicago on the Santa Fe? Here is one in Santa Fe, New Mexico, just off downtown, back in 2005. Happily, the Santa Fe brand is still alive.

  • The Santa Fe Southern Railroad operates the old Super Chief dome cars as part of their excursion trains in Santa Fe.
  • The main Santa Fe railroad still operates, though the name is BNSF, or Burlington Northern Santa Fe. We liked both of the names, separately, but are happy they have been preserved. We think its silly that everything has to be just initials! Why not spell it out occasionally.
  • Amtrak still operates the Southwest Chief.

Hughes Intelsat Logos

At left, a great logo from Intelsat and Hughes, seen on the Space Shuttle mock up walk through at Kennedy Space Center. Hughes once built satellites for Intelsat. The company is now morphed. Sadly, there are fewer Hughes companies than there were. Thankfully, there is still a Hughes Satellite, and the Howard Hughes Company, a subsidairy of General Growth Properties. There is also the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

Brandchannel's Great Paper on Dead Brands

The online magazine Brandchannel.com has a useful paper on dead brands by By Sunil Thomas, Ph.D. and Chiranjeev Kohli, both Ph.D. marketing professors. It is called "Reviving Weak and Dead Brands: Insights from Theory and Practice" and addresses cases that include Oldsmobile, PanAm, and Woolworth.

We won't spoil the whole thing, but the smart thing about the paper is that their first recommendation is to increase the quality of the brand. Their conclusion is also good:

Numerous brands including Harley-Davidson, Ovaltine, Puma, and Cadillac have demonstrated that brand death can be prevented. Managers need to constantly watch for signs of brand decline, in the form of problems with brand knowledge, brand differentiation, and customer response. Using a brand equity framework, we suggest that most brands with high levels of awareness or positive brand image are candidates for revival ...

Marimekko Is Back

 
Here, a look at their store in South Beach, Miami. It's a full concept store, and its right off Lincoln Road. Visit them at marimekkomiami.biz. Marimekko was founded in 1951 by Armi and Viljo Ratia, when Armi asked some artist friends to apply their graphic designs to textiles. In spite of its popularity, the brand was left for dead.
