The little cowboy mascot, Alphy, was fun. An Alpha Beta was across the street from Gran and Gramps' home because the other side of the street was zoned commercial in their small town. It sure was convenient to walk across to shop - in later years the large building became batting cages for Little Leaguer practice, also fun. At Christmas each year a local rancher brought in a few reindeer to a small pen inside to show kids what they were like! Short, is what they were like, maybe 4 feet at the shoulder. Somehow I'd pictured them elk-sized.
I was reading about the mystique of Ferrero Rocher recently and a lot of people linked to some memorable European ads from over the years. Unfortunately most of them are not in English. It would be nice to have them translated!
