Did you cheat (translate the text), or did you figure it out some other way?
:-)

The ad reads:


BETTER PACIFIERS
NEVER WERE NOR WILL BE


READY TO SUCK UNTIL THE OLD AGE
SOLD EVERYWHERE
RUBBER TRUST


In Russian it rhymes, but sounds even more odd than in English. This is
exacerbated by the fact that "soska" ("pacifier", or more literally
"sucker") is a euphemism for "prostitute".

Bulgarian words for "pacifier" and "to suck" are different.. so you can read
Russian? :)

That would be hilarious, the ad (if it is authentic) is at least 80 years
old! :)

It's clear! :) It seems to bee authentic. You can see modern product on
the Belgian site: food.cbg.be/content/view/1/52/lang,english/
It's the same.

This crabe is originated form Kamchatka, but in 60-s it's introduced in
the Murmansk fjord. Whitout a predator he is proliferate and occupy the
north  beaches of Europe (mainly Norwegian).

Tomorrow I will go to the shop and read the 'made in' label :)

I did a bit of investigation, and found that CHATKA is short for KAMCHATKA.
Currently it's a trademark of a Russian company.
