A smorgasbord of culinary delights and thirst-quenching refreshment awaits in this collection of food and drink adverts.
You are what you eat? Advertisers have long presented our food choices as much more than just a cure for hunger, but as a key lifestyle decision. The right purchase can help make you who you want to be; keep you and your kids happy, fit and healthy; save you time and keep you on the go; or impress your dinner party guests of your 'home cooking' skills - all as part of a balanced diet, naturally. And for liquid refreshment, try our choice of soft, hard, hot and cold drinks commercials, offering everything from social pick-me-up to elixir of family contentment. Cheers!
