vintage national home monthly ad of the day

Vintage Ad #494: Prem - The Canned Meat with Tender Beef Added!
Instant meat loaves covered in tangy orange marmalade or alien pods waiting to be hatched (with the buttered almond-topped cauliflower hiding the central brain)?


Unlike other tinned meats previously featured on this site, I have eaten Prem. Growing up, it was the usual Spam knockoff found in the basement cupboard. I never was a great fan of the stuff, with my canned protein tastes running towards flakes of ham or Cordon Bleu/Paris Pate meat spreads.

Once I hit my teens, Prem vanished from the dinner table.
