Below, there is a Chief Calumet located in the center surrounded by phrases such as "Not made by trust," "Contents 1lb.," and "Calumet Baking Powder." The back panel is exactly the same as the front. The inside panels are titled "Try These Recipes" and contain three recipes including Calumet Muffins, Colonial Bread, and Calumet Biscuits. Each recipe consists of a list of all ingredients needed plus detailed directions on how to prepare the dish. At the bottom, the company name and address are listed in blue lettering.
