    A memorable advertising slogan or catch phrase can be an effective means of drawing attention to one or more aspects of a product. In some cases, the catch phrase may be more memorable than the product or company being advertised. Test your memory of these slogans and catch phrases.

    The game starts with an advertising catch phrase or slogan, like "Where's the beef?". The next next person then has to name the company or product being advertised, like Wendy's Hamburgers in this case. That person then adds their own advertising catch phrase or slogan entry to the end of their post for the next person to figure out.

    - - - - - - - - -
    A few simple rules:

    The catch phrase or slogan can be taken from Internet, television, radio or print advertising.

    There is no time restriction as to how old the ad can be.

    The ad had to be part of a national advertising campaign in the USA. No ads that only appeared outside of the USA. No ads for a local or regional company like a car dealership.

    If the name of the company or product is part of the catch phrase, replace it with a couple of asterisks (Let ** put you in the driver's seat).

    Please try to avoid repeats by checking back on recent entries.

    You do not have rely on your memory to get the answer. Use of search engines and on-line references is permitted

    I'll start with the first entry. What company or product used:

    It takes a licking and keeps on ticking

    "He's feeling his Cheerios"

    Since I just used Google myself, I'll have to say that using Google or any other search engine is permissible. :p :D

    Finger-lickin’ good!

    Glad you like the game Judy. I hope we get a few more players.

    Good morning Judy. I had to find the Castrol commercial after you posted your answer. Pretty funny.
