The front cover of the pamphlet features text that reads Using Snowdrift Hogless Lard. The piece has a beige wraparound cover with an ornate Victorian frame both front and back. Text is beige with a black outline. A ribbon appears above a circular frame with a drawing of a chef stirring something in a pan on top of a stove. The back cover features text inside the Victorian box, which is a continuation of text from the inside back cover promoting the product and the "superiority" of Snowdrift and "The Cotton Seed" (Snowdrift Hogless Lard, What It Is, And How It Is Made). Near the bottom of the back cover is text that reads The Southern Cotton Oil Co., New York, Savannah, Atlanta, New Orleans, (printed by) The Barta Press, Boston. All inside pages except the inside back cover feature a variety of recipes.
