My never-ending pursuit of constitutional bric-a-brac has focused on United States v. Carolene Products. Through eBay, I’ve acquires several Carolene Products cookbooks from the late 1930s, as well as a photo of FDR’s pardon of Charles Hauser, the president of Carolene Products. Now, Hauser’s granddaughter, Donna Sattley, adds a new item to my collection: photos of a can of Carolene from 1938.
Note that it says “NOT to be be sold for evaporated milk.” I suspect this disclaimer was an effort to avoid prosecutions under the federal and state filled-milk acts.
At some point in 1938, the name of the product was changed from “Carolene” to “Milnot.”
The cookbook in 1937 still said “Carolene.”
But in 1939 it was called “Milnut”:
Later in 1939, the name was changed to Milnot. It still bears that name today.
