Thanksgiving Dinner - The Borden's Cheese Board
I have to say if an anthropomorphic Elsie offered me a selection from her cheese tray, I'd have to think twice. Borden's was splitting the difference between holidays with this ad that aired in November of 1950. They mention "feast" while showing pine boughs and ornaments.
I also noticed the tray down in the lower right corner features Liederkranz cheese. For those of you who don't know, this is the American version of Limburger cheese. It was created in 1891 by by Emil Frey who would go on to create Velveeta, that staple of American cuisine and hardener of arteries all around the world.
