Subject: RE: For all the Ancients
I don't predate the war but one of my earliest memories is playing catch with my brother with a plastic envelope full of whitish lard-like substance and a dollop of orangey food-dye -- you had to squeeze it up a lot to distribute the coloring in it so it would take on a butter-like color, which was what this product -- newly named "margarine" was supposed to replace.

Can't say I cared for it, but the mixing process was a heap of fun.
