Pillsbury Dough Boy and Recipes

Pillsbury.  We all know it right.  We pretty much stuff everything from sweets to vegetables in Pillsbury dough.  It literally goes with everything.  AND… Who doesn’t LOVE the Pillsbury Dough Boy!

As I was making breakfast this morning (rolling up my eggs, sausage and cheese in dough) I happen to wonder where the dough boy came from.  For as long as I can remember, I have seen him dancing around on commercials.  So I decided to check it out.

Pillsbury is a well known dough brand here in the US since 1869.  It is part of the General Mills Brand.

However, the “Dough Boy” wasn’t born until 1965 in a Chicago Ad Agency.  Since then he has been capturing our hearts with his squishy little belly, and by 1972, the “Poppin’ Fresh” Doll became on of the fastest selling dolls!!

General Mills dough isn’t just popular here in the states either, in Germany they have “Knack and Back” and in the UK, they use “Jus Rol“.

If you want some good Dough Boy fun, you can visit the official Pillsbury website and find recipes galore, get coupons, and make custom dough boy cards, get dough boy wallpaper and even make the dough boy dance!
