Recently read the disappointing news that all Pizza Huts will become "carry-out" only, and pretty much do away with all of their sit-down restaurants and buffets. I mean, it's not my favorite pizza in the world, but it's good enough for the occasional visit and my son likes it. So, time once more to "gather 'round the good stuff" of yesteryear here at AEET with this beautiful 70's Pizza Hut drinking glass that I stumbled upon quite by accident (long story) the other day at a local antique store. This is truly an awesome glass in more ways than one-- it's tall and I super love the tapered waist shape of it, (no resemblance to how you actually feel after eating a bunch of pizza.) But the best part of course is the trifecta of brilliant branding that it displays from my childhood: the very fun original Pizza Hut logo lettering, the original building design illo, and the Pizza Hut Pete mascot serving up the pie just a'like'a mama used to make! He's easily my favorite food mascot ever.
