|Sugar is Scarce, vintage poster, image courtesy of US War Archives|
Here is an unusual one from WWII. The graphics aren't the most interesting, kind of plain, but it did remind people about conserving valuable commodities.
It's hard to believe there was a time when sugar was scarce isn't it? In today's world especially where everything seems like it's got some kind of sweetener in it. Of course, we have to remember as "sweet" as everything in the store is today, back then, there were no artificial sweeteners, and while there was corn syrup, there was no high fructose corn syrup which was used to sweeten things without sugar. That wasn't around until the mid 1960's.
Hope you are having a good weekend. We're hoping for rain today and tomorrow, and as this is being typed, I'm looking out the window and it's getting darker and darker. We're in town today so as to not be stuck out there at the farm if it starts flooding, which is perhaps wishful thinking, ha.
