I got all but one (I was close on that one!) Guess I've been too many commercials...

Well that was fun, but I am stupid I have never seen a streaming service.

You got 5 out of 11 right!
Jingle Novice.
Either you used commercials as bathroom breaks or you grew up watching streaming services. Either way, you missed out on some amazing and catchy jingles. I suggest you rectify that immediately.

Klondike Bars

That was fun! I missed two.
What surprised me the most is that I thought some of those companies were local. I never considered they might be out of state.

"What would you do for a Klondike Bar?" This line has become a fun family favorite game we use with each other because my mom LOVES Klondike Bars! When she asks for help with something around the house she knows how to bribe us or when we have a fun bet going with her favorite baseball team, we bet Klondike Bars! And she NEVER forgets when we owe her one! The worst thing she does is HIDE THEM deeeep in the freezer so we can't just fish them out when we go over to visit. (My sister-in-law has a special place in my mom's heart because she freely takes her FLAVORED Klondike Bars.)

There were a couple times we'd be sitting around on a lazy summer day when she'd announce 'What would you do for a Klondike Bar?' and suddenly we aren't so lazy! Our eyes open wide and our ears perk up to hear what we need to do to earn one! (Yes! We are all adults, but this is serious business!) One of those times my sister confessed she had already 'secretly' been snooping around to see if there were any hidden treasures, so she didn't think my mom really had any! Hah!

My mom has a superpower! She can hide Klondike Bars VERY WELL!
(It's a good thing they're too rich for me! I prefer Drumsticks!)

Apparently not as well as I thought I did! I think I've been singing them wrong in my head. I always thought it was "Oh I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Weiner", but I guess not! Now that I think about it that doesn't make a lot of sense.

Yes, I still hear it the way I chose. I was surprised I got that one wrong. I almost wonder if they had two jingles!

Missing the least seen, maybe?

As I said in a previous post, some of those seemed to be 'local' companies. Maybe people are missing some because they aren't in their area? Or maybe because they are smaller companies, they aren't running as often as McDonald's or... Klondike Bars! Mmm!

Jingle Master! I don’t think I hear many commercials these days. I only watch the morning news. Everything else is Netflix or other paid service.

I only got 6, and that seemed like a lot. I rarely give my full attention to the show—and never to the commercial.

Interesting, for a few reasons...

Why was McDonald’s jingle “infamous”?

What the heck is Empire?? I’ve never even heard of that much less heard its jingle.

PEPteach, that is verbatim what I thought too!

I agree that there may be different versions of many jingles.

GraceKrispy, if one of them had had “Scoop, there it is...” you would have known it, right?

I got four of them. Klondike, McD, State Farm, and Huggies.

That's what I thought it was too! I sang it in my head but it wasn't one of the options. I picked "I wish I had" because of "wish," but in retrospect that doesn't make any sense.

I thought that one was local to the area where I grew up. In fact, the guy who was always in the Empire commercial and came up with the jingle was one of my mom's coworkers when she first graduated from college and worked at an ad agency. He came up with the Empire thing and it really took off and he starred in the commercials for decades (that happened several years after she stopped working and moved out of Chicago and had me) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empire_Today Learn all about him I used to think my mom was famous because she had known him, and I wanted her to call him up and invite him over But she didn't know him that well, apparently

. Now I would!

I got the Education Connection wrong, too. I have never heard of them. All the rest I have heard (and not recently- years ago when it was harder to avoid commercials).

I also always sang "Oh, I wish I were an..." but I figured out which answer was correct.

I, too, always sang "I wish I were an Oscar Myer Weiner..." I think the quiz is wrong, lol!
I got 10 out of 11, but I lucky guessed some of them

I got 9/11. I was expecting to do much worse as I don’t even have live TV any longer but realized these mostly aren’t current commercials.

The two I missed, Education Connection and Empire, I have never even heard of the businesses before.

The Oscar Meyer one I sort of guessed on as I also thought it was “oh I wish I were an Oscar Meyer wiener.”
