1950s Refeshments Vexilloid

A vexilloid appears in the most iconic theater refreshment ad during the 1950s.  The leading refreshment dressed in blue, which appears to be a chocolate bar is holding a drum majors mace with golden orb as the finial.  Behind the leader is a bucket of popcorn holding a refreshment standard.  The refreshment standard is a white broadside with a "Refreshments" written in all capital letters in the colour green.  

 Imagine going to the movies in a suit?  That's what some people did in the 1950s.  Here the four snacks are being consumed by the American nuclear family of the 1950s.

It has been said that Frylocks father is the bucket of popcorn and Master Shakes mom is the cup of soda.  Oddly Meatwad's father was a chocolate bar.
