My granfather lived in Wisconsin and his father got caught for yellow-margarine smuggling over the (Illinois/Wisconsin) border  ;)

I remember margarine ads in the 1960's, when apparently they could not say the word 'butter.' They could allude to it: "Tastes just like the high-priced spreads!"  The only "spread" that I knew about was my mother's bedspread.  Why would anyone want their margarine to taste like cotton chenille?  ???
