It reads:

War-Winning Nourishment
Appetite-Winning Flavor
Uncle Sam says: “Eat a green or yellow vegetable each day.” And Stokley’s Finest Honey Pod Peas fill the bill more ways than one. Peas supply minerals, protein, vitamins A, B1, C and G. And these Honey Pods have a flavor all their own – sweet as honey, garden-fresh. Mixed sizes – just as they come from their crisp green pods. Tested recipes for delicious, thrifty dishes on the back of every label of Stokely’s Finest Honey Pod Peas.

Whether it was Uncle Sam who recommended that you eat green or yellow vegetables every day or just the marketing director, he was right. Including five servings of vegetables and fruit in your diet every day is essential to keeping you feeling full and giving you the nutrients you need.

Next time you are thinking of a snack to eat when you’re hungry, remember your Uncle Sam…

    And they are a great addition to casseroles and salads. Too bad I’m the only one in my family who likes them.
