Without a Helping Hand

Created January 10, 2017
Hamburger Helper has been making meals come together for over 40 years; although it wasn’t always packaged the way it appears on shelves today.

We know, we know—Hamburger Helper without the Helping Hand? Although the brand debuted in 1971, it wasn’t until a year later that the Helping Hand was put on packaging. This coupon still came in handy, though, saving families seven whole cents on their next purchase of the dinnertime staple.
