In the early 1990’s, 7-Up stumbled onto a marketing bit of gold as they used their infamous red dot to become “Cool Spot”. This character soon became a household name right up there with the Noid and Spudz McKenzie. Today’s Classic Comic Ad introduces us to 7-Up Sodalicious fruit snacks.
Clearly these snacks are being sold on the power of Cool Spot. Of course fruit snacks were a big staple of the early 90’s as well, so these two make a perfect marriage. I suspect lots of kids were the talk of the town with these 7-Up fruit snacks in their lunch boxes. Sadly I never had any as my parents rarely if ever bought me fruit snacks.
I did play the Cool Spot video game a few times though and I had a plush Noid… So it wasn’t all bad.
