Archival Adventures: Sweet'N Low and Butter Buds Promotional Materials Collection

Archival Adventures: Sweet'N Low and Butter Buds Promotional Materials Collection

It's time for an adventure! Join our community collections archivist, Anthony Wright de Hernandez, for a livestream on Twitch! Every week we explore and discuss materials from Special Collections and University Archives covering topics including university history, NASA pioneers, architecture, science fiction, cooking, LGBTQ+ history, Black history, urban legends, and more. Recordings of previous streams are available on the Libaries' Youtube page.

Today, we head to the 1980s for some food advertising history with the Sweet’N Low and Butter Buds Promotional Materials Collection. Both brands are products of the Cumberland Packing Corporation. The collection includes various advertising proposals and copies of advertisements from 1979 through 1985.
