Did You Take One of These Vitamins Growing Up?
Anymore when you're on the internet, you get ads popping up for every type of vitamin and supplement available to man. You can't go through a Facebook scroll without something appearing that will allegedly get your health back where it should be.
Looking at the availability of vitamins today made me think back when I was a kid growing up in the 60's and 70's. We had a few options for nutritional supplements, i.e., vitamins. But for kids, they weren't all that prevalent, except for a few particular brands that came about.
Vitamins always have been and always will be a high-profit item. It all started back in 1960 when vitamins were geared for children. The companies that distributed those candy-like chewables for kids were making a mint.
It was no fluke that years later the giant vitamin-maker teamed up with one of the most popular kid’s shows at the time. In 1968, Miles teamed up with the crew from Bedrock to market Flintstones vitamins in a variety of colors, shapes, and chewy varieties.
