The list below includes some famous products and some not so famous ones..but like sparrows they are suddenly extinct, without anyone noticing..
Tinopal & Robin blue:
Not sure of the latter..but my mom used to make my sparkling white school uniform into aquamarine blue. The latter one was more potent. Few extra drops and you will get a permanent blue stained dress..i used to like the cute dabba in which it came
This is really something to think about..a while back, these folks were market leaders with virtual monopoly over toyland. I still remember pestering my dad, asking for a toy machine gun, which incidentally was way too much priced at that time to afford. And suddenly this company is nowhere.
Not that i am a great fan of this paste. But this is onething which i dont see on the racks anymore
this is one soap we used in our chem. lab in school to figure out how hazardous a soap can be. It was so very concentrated your hands will whiten fully, forget about the clothes. havent seen that irritatingly noisy ad for a while now.
i used to hate this one as a kid. never liked the taste when its mixed with milk. But had a yummy taste to eat directly. i purposedly used to keep the packet open so that it becomes hard like a candy. not seeing this one also. There used to be an ad for the latter where a kid will do somersault after drinking maltova. i used to wonder whether it was so yucky that its causing all these reacitons to that poor fellow.
i miss the ad..with asrani and some other guy..every sunday when they showed spiderman cartoon this ad will come. is it just the ad or the company also is missing? no idea
forget about the taste..i think the makers revolutionized ad marketing with the runs n wickets concept. never were the wrappers of a product more in demand than the actual product..it used to be a rage during my school time and there always was a race to collect 1000 runs and 100 wickets for that bat and some trivia book signed by srikanth. its nowhere to be seen now
boy..am i missing those ads..i think their Street cat cycle was the first one to come up with a rap song for an ad..i think it goes like..BOOM BOOM SHAKALAKA BOOM BOOM something.and the investigator series ads.. wow...not sure if this one is still there..but i dont see any ads for them at all..
