A Brief History of Flintstones Vitamins

Flintstones Vitamins continue to be popular, even though both the children who take them today and most of their parents are too young to remember when the television show that inspired them was on in prime time.
Perhaps some of the explanation for the Flintstone Vitamins continued success is in their nostalgia for the generations of children who grew up with them — and who are now parents themselves. There’s even a Facebook group  for those who ate the vitamins as a kid. And then there’s that jingle — “Ten million strong and growing!” — which, incidentally, was composed by Martin O’Donnell, the same guy who composed the music for the intensely popular Halo video game series.

Mental_floss takes a look at how the vitamins came about and how they've changed over the years -including the saga of the Betty Rubble vitamin. Link
