    Wow, I vaguely remember that product. I wonder if they quickly renamed it, or it was banned.

    Bonus points for the 80's workout gear.

      [[Ayds]] says the product became fatally underpurchased due to the name similarity.

      It possibly didn't help that their idea of changing the name was to switch to "Diet Ayds".

    Yeah, people have started remembering Ayds since Howard Stern started talking about it lately. He also had the guy who owned the company for an interview not too long ago.

    There's a track on an album by an NZ EBMesque artist called Fear V. Loathing called Aids Diet, from about ten years back which sounds like a radio ad for the product from the '50s. I guess they dropped out of the market not long after this commercial.
