What common household item wouldn't have become popular if it wasn't for another invention in 1928 (it didn't take off until 1930)?


You could say it was popularized by the best thing to happen since itself.....

Well, between the bread and the toaster and the Trix, I'm really hungry now!! Nice job!! Great teaser!
Jan 18, 2006

igot it after i read the hint
good teaser, thanks!
Jan 18, 2006

Nice! There is no way I would have worked this out if it hadn't been for your other teasers on the same theme!
Jan 18, 2006

Your teasers are tricky
I had no idea till i read the hint, and even then if i hadnt doen ur other teaser about toatsers, i never wulda gotten it
Jan 19, 2006

I got it after seeing the hint, especially after the other toaster teaser you did.
Jan 19, 2006

Hmmm, I think I will have my toast with a little bit of strawberry jam, please.
Jan 20, 2006

Wow, just did a different toaster teaser, so knew this one. Easy and fun

This one was good! I knew there was a toaster in there. I just "wonder" why companies that make health destroying products become so successful. I'll stick to real food, such as whole grains the way they were created to be eaten!
Feb 28, 2006

That wasn't a hint. That was the answer.
Sep 20, 2007

Good one. In an instint I came up with ice cream and frige. Thought about for a moment but could'nt change my mind.
Sep 20, 2007

Too vague... give us more to go on, please!

Learned something new today after reading the answer. Hmmm...
Sep 20, 2007

My mother had one of those old toasters for years after the modern ones came out. You had to turn the slices manually to toast both sides, and if you didn't watch out, you could burn them -- in which case, my thrifty mom would scrape the burnt toast and make you eat it anyway, blech!
Sep 20, 2007 it right...and the toast portion, too.
Sep 20, 2007

Before the hint I had no clue - knowing bread was needed, toaster was best guess. Thanks that was fun.
Sep 20, 2007

fun and educationel
Sep 20, 2007

Very cool! Love the trivia!
Sep 20, 2007

Good bit of trivia which I didn't know, but probably very few people would know either. Learn something new each day I say. Thanks for sharing.
Sep 20, 2007

The title gave it away to me right away. Then the hint made me 100 percent positive about my answer. Good one!
Sep 20, 2007

That was a good one! I guessed the clothes drier with the washing machine needing to have been invented first.
Sep 20, 2007

I'm with 4Princess.The title gave it away
Sep 20, 2007

Got it after the hint.. That is my favorite saying..You're the best thing since sliced bread!
Sep 20, 2007

I was thinking something else, which I'm too embarrassed to say!
Sep 20, 2007

easy but fun
Sep 20, 2007

Sep 20, 2007

That was interesting, I like it when people give a history & I learn something, Knew the Expression!
Still didn't get it. Tired!

We used a similar toaster when camping where you had to turn the bread & my mom had one
B4 the electric kind. Oops giving away my age. Mom had me young tho Ha Ha

Thanks enjoyed your Teaser
Sep 20, 2007

Sorry 2nd Posting.

CRANIAC : I remember the
ritual of scraping the toast. It
tasted like ... you described it
perfectly. Rose
Sep 20, 2007

Well played! Got it w/o the hint, hard but just enough of a clue in the title. Great explanation on the history.
Sep 20, 2007

T oo early... must have coffee!!
Sep 20, 2007

When I was a little kid (long, long ago!) we had a toaster that did one side and then you had to pullit down and the mechanism turned the toast over so the other side could be done!
Sep 20, 2007

I am old but not that old. Sorry I didn't get it right. Thanks for posting the teaser. It was fun trying.

Sep 20, 2007

Got it after the hint. I too remember "watching" the toaster and scraping.
Sep 20, 2007

I never would have gotten this in a million years.
Sep 20, 2007

Interesting bit of history, but not really what I would call a "teaser". It would fit better in a trivia-type game.
Sep 20, 2007

Sep 20, 2007

my wild-eyed guess was the vacuum cleaner, without which wall-to-wall carpet would never have become popular.
Sep 20, 2007

So clever And nice to work in the 'wonder' in the title I got sliced bread so went straight to knives, blades, and sharpening, thus knife sharpener. Your answer is much better
Sep 20, 2007

Thanks for the comments.

And just FYI, this teaser was submitted well before the quiz section was created.

Sep 20, 2007

thats a hard one, i felt like i was in my AP American History class tho, holy crap!
Sep 21, 2007

Got it, going to use mine now...
Sep 22, 2007

yessss. I got it, pretty easy if you think hard
Sep 25, 2007

I liked that one and I got to learn some new facts as well.
Sep 20, 2010

I only got it after the clue.

But It's a great teaser!!!
Sep 20, 2010

Fun! Figured it was either the toaster or a bread box! Good one!
Sep 20, 2013

Got the bread reference from the title, just couldn't get the toaster idea to pop up. Happy Friday all!
Sep 20, 2013

Title gave it away. My $130 Breville is the best I've ever used.
Sep 20, 2013

I thought it was a can and a can opener until I read the hint.
Sep 21, 2016

I agree with Montie 317. This belongs in the trivia section. It was not even fun or interesting.
