How many times have you walked into a Subway sandwich shop and started to sing their "$5 Footlong" song? Have you ever pulled up to the McDonalds drive-thru and instinctively hummed "I'm Lovin' It"? Those incessantly catchy jingles get into our heads and we just can't get them out! Aside from being great advertising methods, many product jingles have become part of our cultural consciousness. Are you looking for a list of commercial jingles that will remind you of the past? This article is an excellent means to reminisce! We’ve focused on popular food and drink songs from the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s. Enjoy!
Here's our list of the top ten best jingles of all time:
|10.) Fanta: "Wanna Fanta, Don’t You Wanna?"
The Fanta girls, known to fans as "The Fantanas", took the world by storm in 2002. Their infectious cry of "Wanna Fanta, don't you wanna?" personifies effective company advertising. Each member of The Fantanas represents a Fanta flavor (strawberry, orange, pineapple, and grape), and the luscious ladies proved to be so popular that they even have their own MadTV parody and many girls dress up as them every Halloween. Even though there have been several sets of Fanta girls since the original, these soda-pop songbirds are still a hit!

|9.) Wrigley’s Doublemint Gum: "Double Your Pleasure, Double Your Fun"
The twins! Who could forget the commercials that featured frolicking sets of twins and peppy background singers that used every "double" pun in existence? This super-catchy jingle tends to seep into your brain until you catch yourself singing it over and over again! Plus, the countless different shades of green used in the Doublemint commercials definitely helped audiences remember the sweet chewing gum.

8.) Quiznos Sub: "We Love the Subs!"
7.) Chicken Tonight: "I Feel Like Chicken Tonight"
6.) Chili's Baby Back Ribs: "Chili's (Welcome to Chili's!)"
|5.) Mentos: "The Freshmaker"
Did you break a heel on your shoe? Or perhaps you accidentally sat in wet paint? Never fear! With the help of Mentos, all will be well. The unforgettably-campy mid-90s Mentos commercials were flawlessly parodied in the Foo Fighters video "Big Me", which could have easily passed for a Mentos commercial had it featured the brutally catchy jingle. Mentos taught viewers that they can count on extra-fresh mints to help them when they’re in a pinch.

|Dr. Pepper: "Wouldn’t You Like to Be a Pepper, Too?"
Who's a Pepper? Me? You? That guy over there? It seems so! Those happy-go-lucky commercials, which debuted in the 1970s, sure made being a Pepper seem like a lot of fun. Even though it is unclear what being a Pepper entails, you can't help but get sucked in to their unbridled enthusiasm. You may be surprised to learn that the Dr. Pepper brand still associates itself with this commercial jingle—and they even sell imprinted mugs, bowls, t-shirts, and all sorts of custom merchandise featuring the famous tagline!

3.) McDonalds: "You Deserve a Break Today"
|2.) Oscar Mayer: "My Bologna Has a First Name" and "If I Were an Oscar Mayer Wiener"
Oscar Mayer has TWO equally catchy and beloved jingles. Of course, everyone knows "if I were an Oscar Mayer wiener, everyone would be in love with me," but there is also the jingle that makes it clear that Oscar Mayer has a way with B-O-L-O-G-N-A. Make way for the Wienermobile! Be sure to feed your nostalgia and listen to both of these commercial jingles.

|1.) Coca-Cola Company: "I'd Like to Buy The World A Coke"
Peace. Love. Happiness. The sharing of cola. What's not to love?
Coca-Cola's awesomely-groovy anthem of brotherhood was so popular that it became a best selling single (minus the Coke references). Sure, this iconic commercial might be a bit feel-good for some tastes, but when you see a group of people standing in a meadow singing about togetherness, don't you just want to give the person next to you a hug? Or better yet, buy them a Coke (or a logo-imprinted bottle holder)?
