Vintage Ad: 7-Up in Milk

I can't believe this 1950's ad encouraged mothers to add soda to kids' milk.

And I quote: "Mothers know that this is a wholesome combination"...

Yum, 7-Up in milk!! Actually, it's can't be any worse than Laverne DeFazio's Pepsi and Milk. But.. wholesome!?

That just sounds so disgusting to me. Wouldn't it curdle the milk?

Anyone notice the instructions "do not stir"? What dreadful occurance would result? (Probably loss of carbonation.)

Judging from mom's waistline, that kid must be adopted.

I've had this as a kid, it's surprisingly good. The milk is half-carbonated and nothing curdles.
