What Products Are Still Around…

Last week I was reminiscing about the barber shops I went to as a child. My mother read the post and asked me if the old Lucky Tiger Cru-Butch Control Hair Wax I wore in my hair way back when was still sold. I had looked for it a while back and couldn’t find it. But I thought, at her prodding, I would explore it again.


Sitting on my desk is a plastic container of Lucky Tiger Cru-Butch Control Hair Wax (made since 1935!) from Amazon! Now, I doubt I will ever use the stuff, ever have a flat top again for that matter, but I still love the smell!

I do, however, still use 2 products from my childhood. I use them because I love the smell of them: Aqua Velva aftershave, which reminds me of my grandfather* every time I smell it, and Clubman’s Finest Talk by Pinaud.

  • This then made me start thinking: what products from my youth are still around these 50+ years later?
  • Do you have products you still love/use from your childhood? (Feel free to add a list of them and why you like them in the comments.)

*Aqua Velva has an official Facebook page?! What a hoot! If my grandfather could visit today, he wouldn’t comprehend a computer on the internet, let alone Facebook. What a different world!

One thought on “What Products Are Still Around…”

  1. The oldest U.S. copyright still in use is Underwood Deviled Ham and the little imp with the pitchfork. It goes back to the late 19th century…
