    Boy, do I feel old now. It is the name commonly used for oleomargarine.

    The first oleo (margarine) on the market came in a plastic bag and was white creamy stuff that had a color capsule in it. (Yes, a liquid-filled pill.) You squeezed it until the capsule broke and leaked it's orange-colored contents,
    Somebody PLEASE tell me I'm not the only 71-year old who remembers this!
    I am a 73 yr. old that vividly remembers. I use to LOVE to break that little orange tablet and massage the thing into the white margarine. It has always been a pleasant memory......Oh, what our kids have missed out on....:O)

    Thanks, everyone, I DO feel better now! And you're all right - it did taste pretty awful, but it's funny - I don't remember mom's food tasting awful, it was always good. I don't get that part!

    I used to be a "material" girl, too - "fabric " was kind of high 'falutin. Guess we've all come a long way!

    Your are not the only one. I've told my children about that since they were small. I use to 'help' my grandmother mix this when she would get it. I loved to watch it turn yellow. Oh, those were the days. LOL I am 72.

    I knew somebody was going to ask me that. Oleo is margarine. that is a brand name from my mama's era and we've just always called it that.
    LOL ... knew someone would ask that too ! I'm old enough to remember Oleo ... many of my grandmas & my mom's recipes refer to using oleo (they used real butter too) My girls asked the same thing not long ago, when we made some family recipes ... I also heard "Eww, who puts Buttermilk in a recipe, Gross!" and "What's Carnation milk? / What is Milnot?" :roll:

    Ha ha! I forgot all about calling it material. Don't know when I switched to using "fabric." Don't remember mixing the color into margarine, but my mom told me about doing it, so I knew what "Oleo" meant. Good times! :thumbup:

    Well I'm 63 years old and I remember my folks buying oleo. They would buy it in Wisconsin as it wasn't sold in Minnesota at that time Minnesota was a diary State only real butter was sold.

    Sounds yummy!!! DH picked the first yellow squash today so that means they're starting to come off. I'm not suppose to have cheese but that's not too awful much. Thanks...sounds like a winner!!! :thumbup: :thumbup:
