Ambrosia Apple Juice
In Greek Mythology, ambrosia is the nectar of the goods, conferring immortality upon whoever drinks it – which is a pretty ambitious claim for a juice made from concentrate. One thing that isn’t an exaggeration, however, is how beautiful this print is advertising the beverage.
Released in 2013, this reproduction of the original Oberpfaffendorfer ad is part of a rare edition of giclée prints. Designed in 1958, the advertisement features an illustration by artist Renée Porraneo, whose relationship with Oberpfaffendorfer dated back to the early 1900s. In this image, Porraneo transports you to the Alps and brings you the memory of crisp, sweet apple juice and the feeling of simpler days.
Will it grant you immortal life? Well, there’s only one way to know for sure.

Founded in the early 1900s, Oberpfaffendorfer is a family-run company manufacturing packaged foods. With roots in German-speaking Switzerland, the company is as known for its family loyalty as it is for its packaged “comfort food.” Oberpfaffendorfer fully embraced the frozen food market in the 1950s, and some of its popular products include Neptune Nibblets and its Croquettes. The company slogan, “We’re a mouthful!” plays on the company’s difficult-to-pronounce name, as well as its reputation for hearty food.
