I grew up eating frozen Chicken Pot Pie. As a child of a working mom in the 70’s and 80’s, Swanson Chicken Pot Pies were one of her go-to solutions for getting a meal on the table after a long day of work.
While I’m not exactly sure what was in those Swanson Chicken Pot Pies, my jaw dropped when I saw a recent advertisement by Marie Callender.
Marie Callender’s Chicken Pot Pie TV Commercial
Here’s a full script of Marie Callender’s Chicken Pot Pie advertisement:
