Louis Armstrong was a devout missionary of Swiss Kriss herbal laxatives, and even sent some to the British royals. He loved a good meal, red beans and rice especially, and would sign letters “Red Beans and Ricely Yours” or “Swiss Krissly Yours.”

The above is a photo of his family at Thanksgiving dinner, thanks to the Louis Armstrong Museum twitter feed, and below is a package of Swiss Kriss and the postcard he would send to adoring fans, extoling the benefits of the product, complete with a photo of him using the toilet after its effects took hold.
