Be careful saying "Ayds" and "Anderson Cooper" in spoken conversation or you could start quite a scary rumor!

I remember seeing Lady Thelma Furness in another ad. I think it was for beer or something like that.

My mom used to use Ayds. They were delicious! I wasn't supposed to eat them, of course, but I always found her hiding place. I ate a bunch of them when I was 5 and I didn't die.

Yes, both often lent their names in advertising to support their many cruises to "Europe"
