Produced by the Dallas-based Bill Stokes Associates, this 1970s television commercial promotes the express lane at Kroger grocery stores. Promising to save money as well as time, Kroger pledges to give customers a free loaf of bread if they are not checked out in five minutes or less. As the jingle concludes, "The Kroger express is great...honest!"
