Hazel Atlas Glass "Gay Rainbow" Milk and Cream Pitcher Was A Kix Cereal Premium

Gay Rainbow Milk and Cream Pitcher

Who hasn't seen the Hazel Atlas Glass milk and cream pitcher which comes in blue, yellow, orange and green? A day doesn't go by that I don't spot several of these common kitchen collectibles in an antique mall or shop.

Popular Kitchen Premiums

There are so many of these Hazel Atlas milk pitchers around because they were premiums (free promotional items) from Kix cereal.

The advertisement (also a collector's item) read:

"FREE At Your Grocer's While They Last: This Lovely, Genuine Gay Rainbow Milk and Cream Pitcher" .

Value: Pitchers $6.00-8.00.
Advertisement $15.00-20.00.

  1. I have one of these in blue, but I never knew the story behind it, so Thanks!
    Thanks for stoping by my blog! Come on back!

  2. Thanks for letting me know about this post. I'd never seen one of these before and found mine on ebay. A friend told me it was custard glass. Now I know they came with Kix. I love Kix even more now.

    Thanks for stopping by!
