The Question:What former First Lady appeared in TV commercials for Good Luck Margarine?
Soon after margarine was introduced in 1869, the dairy industry initiated an anti-margarine smear campaign hoping to persuade the public that margarine was unhealthy. “Good Luck Margarine” needed a boost from a well-known figure, which came in the form of an unlikely spokesperson.
Eager to make money for her various charities, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt accepted an invitation to appear in a 1959 margarine commercial for the company. In the commercial, Roosevelt told viewers that she “thoroughly enjoyed” Good Luck Margarine and that she spread it on her toast every morning.
The Answer: The correct answer is Eleanor Roosevelt.
