That's why I specified that the last bottle was produced in 1965. The rest of the Frothingslosh releases were in cans, which coincided with the popularity of beer can collecting.

The most successful revival came in the late '60s when they hired a large woman (Marsha Majors) to pose as a beauty queen. The new campaign caught on, and Iron City even issued a calendar with her pictures. She appeared at can collector events to sign autographs.

The "Miss Frothingslosh" campaign had nothing to do with the Cordic show. There's some confusion since one of the Bob Trow's "Cordic & Company" characters was Brunhilde, who was always described as "355 pounds of loveliness" and entered the studio through the garage door.

Although her involvement had nothing to do with radio/TV, here is more information on then life and times of Miss Frothingslosh:
