The Well-Dressed Dessert from 1969

The Well-Dressed Dessert from 1969

Below is a spiral-bound, easel cookbook* from Cool Whip published in 1969. I stumbled upon this retro gem in the basement of Found Things in Des Moines. The entire first floor of Found Things is filled with rustic architectural pieces; the lower level a mix of several vendors that carry vintage and used goods, as well as new items. These illustrations put the "cool" in Cool Whip. They scream late 60s: the trippy, wavy, graphics; the high voltage colors; the liberal use of flowers. "Get ready to flip into a new adventure".
