The Recurring Pream
But Sally is actually going a little bit loopy up there in the corner. Her excuse is that she is telling us "why Pream is a joy to cook with, too!"
Uh oh. Cook with? Are you serious, Sally?
She is. She wants us to put it in Cream Sauce. That would make it Pream Sauce, right? And also Sally tells us that it is a joy to put Pream in gravy, to make it smooth. And hey, why not stick some in the tomato soup too - it will make it creamier. Or Pream-ier. And Sally has cooked up a whole "Recipe Folder" of this sort of strangeness that she wants to send to you and me. Over here at unz.org you can see a 1956 Pream ad from Collier's (this ad is from 1955) which features (down at the bottom) a strange, black-and-white mess of a photo that claims to be Eggs à la Pream with Never Lump White Sauce - which is possibly one of the most off-putting recipe names I've ever seen.
Thanks but no thanks, Sally.
