Independence Pie: Happy Fourth of July!

Retro Ad from July 5, 1943 for Independence Pie! This Carnation Milk ad was created when the U.S. was at War. Notice the Buy U.S. Savings Bonds in the lower right hand corner.

"Eat your milk" and try this Independence Pie: A Basic Cream Pie Recipe for Various Fruits. For today add Strawberries and Blueberries. I, of course, would make a chocolate crust.

Historically, this advertisement is filled with fascinating information from WW II. Some of the ideas include irradiated milk, war bonds and even a suggestion on how to mix water with the milk just so you can drink it. This milk in a can becomes a beverage if it is needed.

Thank you~!
