Enjoy AYD'S

You may remember those unfortunately-named appetite-suppressant chocolate chews of the late 1970s/early 1980s. But do you remember the actual television commercial?

"Why take diet pills when you can enjoy AYD'S?"

View the AYD'S TV ad.

I rememebr Ayd's. My mom tried them. Tasted pretty bad. It was a fairly well-known product that had middling sales until it was sold in 1981 and had a successful uptick due to a revamped marketing campaign. Then the HIV syndrome's name was changed from GRID (Gay-Related Immune Deficiency) to AIDS. Ayd's sales completely evaporated. They were gone in a matter of weeks.
