Polar Bear Flour Quality Counts


The front cover of the pamphlet features a color illustration of a polar bear on a chunk of ice, with title text in red and black overhead reading Polar Bear Flour Quality Counts. A decorative blue and yellow border surrounds the drawing and title. The back cover features the same border, but it contains a sack of flour, with another drawing of the polar bear on the ice chunk. Above the bear is text reading Bread Is The Best And Cheapest Food. Below the bear is text reading Reg. U.S. Pst. Off., Polar Bear, The New Era Milling Co., Arkansas City, Kans., Bleached 48-Lbs., Polar Bear Flour. Near the bottom of the border is additional text reading There Is No Substitute For High Quality. In addition to recipes on the inside pages, there also is promotional text for the flour and the company. Recipes are not indexed, but feature breads, muffins and desserts.
