Birds Eye Buyers' News; Don't Kill The Goose That Lays Profit "Eggs"!


The front of the newsletter has a red header and a blue text body. There is a drawing of a goose running from a butcher with the "profit eggs." Below are the benefits of buying Birds Eye to sell to patrons. The back includes menus for April and an informational section about the vitamin content in Birds Eye. The inside features vitamin rich luncheon menus and some of the recipes featured in the menus. Included with the letter is the original mailing envelope and recipe cards (10.2 x 21.6 cm) for Birds Eye corn cakes, peach pudding, and luncheon salad.
