An article at BabyBoomers.com caught my attention about brands made famous by boomers. It was written by one of Advertising Age’s boomer-aged writers who had been asked to name the top 15 boomer brands.

I have added a few comments below on some brands that I remember and the boomer generation made famous.

What about Calvin Klein jeans, underwear etc. “Remember the slogan with Brooke Shields, nothing gets between me and my Calvin’s.”

Brute cologne was another one, all of us guys wore it.

Cars, what about the 1969 Comaro?

What about Little League Baseball?

Nobody has mentioned Disco music?? To this day who does not get up and dance at a wedding when they play The Village People’s “Y.M.C.A.”

Well we could all keep coming up with other brands. We are a nostalgic generation!
