General Foods Corporation was a company whose direct predecessor was established in the USA by Charles William Post as the Postum Cereal Company in 1895. The name General Foods was adopted in 1929, after several corporate acquisitions. In November, 1985 General Foods was acquired by Philip Morris Companies (now Altria Group, Inc.) for $5.6 billion, the largest non-oil acquisition to that time. In December, 1988 Philip Morris acquired Kraft, Inc., and in 1990 combined the two food companies as Kraft General Foods (KGF). "General Foods" was dropped from the corporate name in 1995 and now exists only as part of a brand name for a flavored coffee-based beverage, General Foods International.

Here is a retro General Foods International Coffee commercial that is from 1988. Everything in this commercial looks so warm and cozy! What agreat TV commercial for people in the 80s!! This vintage commercial makes you want to have a nice cup of General Foods Coffee in the morning. How about the Cafe Vienna style? Commercials from the 1980s were so much better than the commercials today. RADICAL!!! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2RadicalDudez - An 80s and 90s blog - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- OUR OBJECTIVE The majority of these clips are from our personal VHS collection that we recorded from TV while growing up in the 80's and 90's. We really enjoy spreading a bit of happiness and nostalgia to our viewers. Many of these clips would be lost forever if they weren't preserved online. Our goal is to preserve these clips by uploading them to the internet where they will have no chance of deteriorating as they do when in VHS format. This will ensure that the generations ahead of us will continue enjoying these clips as much as we have. Lastly, if you are in any of these clips, or know anyone in them, or worked on them, or have any extra info about them, please leave a comment or send us a message. As any info would help in the preservation of these RADICAL clips. Thanks!!
