McCann's:  Great famine

Description

Print advertisement created by The Creative Circus, United States for McCann's, within the category: Food.

Caption

In 1845, the Great Famine destroyed Ireland's potatoes. Fortunately, the Irish still had their oatmeal.
The Irish have survived plenty of hardship in their long history. But an empty stomach can bring anyone to their knees. Luckily, when the potato famine struck, they still had McCann’s Irish Oatmeal. Threatened with starvation, the Irish turned to McCann’s oatmeal to fill their aching bellies.
The delicious steel-cut oats kept them going, even in the worst of times. Take it from the Irish. You need a real meal to start the day off right. Give your body the breakfast it deserves – a hearty, healthy bowl of McCann’s Irish Oatmeal.
Grown in Ireland by people grown in Ireland.
