|Flintstones Vitamins go way back.|
Growing up, I remember popping Flintstones chewable Vitamins every morning. I also remember that they didn't taste as good as baby aspirin and they're definitely not as tasty as today's gummy vitamins. Miles Laboratories first introduced Flintstones Vitamins way back in 1968 (acquired by Bayer in 1979) and they are still popular with kids and parents today. The vitamins were the most successful product spawned from the Hanna-Barbera Productions.
I'm surprised to see that Flintstones Vitamins are still going strong and are even being advertised with the old school late '80s commercial jingle, "We are Flintstones kids. 10 million strong and growing!" I always loved the little kid at the very end. They would sweetly sing (solo) "... and growwwwwwing."
Cool fun fact: Martin "Marty" O'Donnell is the awesome composer behind the famous Flintstones Vitamins jingle. His children were part of the children's choir heard in the original commercials. He's now known for sound design behind video games such as Halo.
