Certs go back to 1956, by the Montelez Company. Found an early TV spot with Dick Clark on "American Bandstand" (11/5/63), a later Philadelphia airing. This was part of a huge effort by these "breath mint" companies to woo teens into buying them. Along with Certs, Dick Clark had competitors like Dentyne Gum as advertisers on "Bandstand," also Clorets Gum on his "Where the Action Is" daytime show (5/17/66, ABC) and "Happening '68" (1/27/68, ABC) with Paul Revere and Mark Lindsay. Certs can be addicting.
