Cream liqueurs were a huge hit in the early 1980s in the United States of America. The first to be sold was Bailey’s Irish Cream in 1979. It sold so well that many other distilling companies attempted to cash in on the success. In the early 1980s, The Creamery Co. in Syosset, New York ran an advertising campaign in New York and Chicago area newspapers. The advertisement stated that if you bought a bottle of Dunphy’s Cream Liqueur, Cara Mia Amaretto Cream Liqueur, or Droste Chocolate Cream Liqueur and mailed in the label to prove it, you would be sent $3.00 in return.
