LOOK at it.

(click ad) They're currently holding a Most Disgusting Food/Recipe Ad contest at Vintage Ads. This one, from 1954, is the worst I've seen so far: lime Jell-O®, cottage cheese, onions, mayonnaise, topped with seafood. update: hilarious historical Jell-O flipbook.
1940s SPAM ads.
Spinach turned into puke brick by Stouffer's.

Ha! Funny you are discussing this...we recently found this heinous selection of professional food photography and felt the need to blog about it too...what is it about the 1950's and unappetizing food ads? http://www.npr.org/blogs/pictureshow/2010/04/22/126189139/nickolas-muray

I was raised LDS. Meals like this are par for the course at a Mormon pot luck. And yes, "savory" jell-o salads ARE as disgusting as they look.
