Feen-A-Mint Commercial


Feen-A-Mint.....sounds like mint-flavoured cocaine. But it was a women's laxative that came in a chewing gum as well as pills. But I remember this commercial for how tacky it was (how you ever noticed in '70s laxative commercials how people just randomly stopped everything to loudly talk about their "irregularity" problem?)

And the daughter here gets the gum while stuffy old mom takes the pills.

  1. Laxatives that look like Chiclets! Also made memorable by Sophia Petrillo in a Golden Girls episode:

    Rose: Did all that stuff come out of your purse?

    Sophia: No, Rose, I was also cleaning out my ears... that's where the Feen-A-Mint and the rain bonnet came from!
