It’s digestible!

Why not? Crisco itself is digestible! It’s pure… it’s all vegetable. Even doctors – 9 out of 10 of them – say foods fried in Crisco are easy to digest.

That’s worth knowing! Because all too often fried foods are heavy and indigestible. So play safe! Fry foods light and crisp in Crisco, and you can serve heaping helpings without a worry. They’re sure to be digestible!

That’s another wonderful reason more women cook with Crisco than with any other brand of shortening!

For cakes and pies and tasty fries – use Crisco! It’s digestible!
