Nostalgia Theater: Superman Peanut Butter -- "Its Strength is its Great Taste"

With Man of Steel burning up the box office this weekend (check out my review if you haven't already!), let's stay on topic for a little while longer with this vintage spot for Superman Peanut Butter. Believe it or not, that was a real thing, lasting for a few years from the late '70s into the early '80s. I don't have a lot of memories of what it tasted like, but one presumes it tasted just like regular, run-of-the-mill peanut butter. Nonetheless, countless kids probably forced their parents to buy Superman PB, as opposed to whatever generic store-brand stuff they usually picked up, simply because of that stylized "S" beckoning to them from the condiments aisle. At least, that's what happened in my house! Catch the vid below:
