Lucy doing the Vitameatavegamin commercial

Where did “Ketomeatavegamin” come from?

Are you familiar with the classic TV show “I Love Lucy?” If so, I bet you can guess where the name “Ketomeatavegamin” came from! In the famous episode “Lucy Does A TV Commercial,” Lucy promoted Vitameatavegamin, a so-called health elixir.  It contained vitamins, meat, vegetables and minerals… and 23% alcohol!  Well, being a Lucy fan, it seemed we might have something in there somewhere.  Maybe the name Ketomeatavegamin is corny, but we think it’s cute, too!
