Imperial Sugar has been part of kitchens across the country since 1843. Let’s take a stroll down memory lane with a sampling of our classic commercials below. Visit the Imperial Sugar YouTube Channel for over 100 classic commercials and how-to videos.
Teena in the Kitchen
This vintage commercial from 1964 showcases the “Teena in the Kitchen” cookbook from Imperial Sugar. There were actually two Teena in the Kitchen cookbooks. The first one was published in 1954 with just a sketching of a young lady on the front. The second was published in 1964 with an actual picture of Nancy Collins, daughter of former U.S. Congressman Jim Collins.

The Household Economist
Originally broadcast in 1975, this classic Imperial Sugar commercial showcases our Household Economist Cookbook which was based on saving money. The first edition was published in 1915 and was reissued 60 years later. Want to save like grandma did?

The Grandmother of Texas Sugars
This commercial from 1993 is sweet in more ways than one. Watch as Lucille Brinson gives us her heartfelt opinion on why she uses Imperial Sugar. Be sure to hold on till the very end. We promise it will be worth the wait.
