I remember seeing an add for 'Snappy-Tom', or perhaps it's 'Snap-E-Tom', or
the some such in a late 40s or early 50s bound volume of old Life magazines.
They were advertising in the 70s, as I remember, and the design of the can
had not changed much. These were little itty bitty cans, about the size and
shape of a small can of tomato paste. The product was a zesty tomato juice,
a kind of Bloody Mary mix.
