Does anyone else remember:


Whenever there was a "Peanuts" special on TV, Dolly Madison snacks were very heavily promoted.. they must've had a partnership or something.....

I remember these! Usually during the Peanuts specials ! ( I am going to do a blog post of those one day soon) Count me as one of the biggest Peanuts fans in the world. I had Snoopy on everything, lunchboxes, sheets, Snoopy & Belle wardrobes. etc.
They also had some kind of agreement with Peter Paul's Peppermint Patties. ( I can't make this up)
I just did a blog post on Fred Vs. Esther!

I wonder if it got bought out by Little Debbie or Hostess.

Sorry! I meant to say that I remember when Charlie Brown was on Hostess Chocolate cupcakes & Snoopy was on the Chocolate Zingers.

I remember these fruit pies with the Peanuts characters on them! I used to cut out the characters from the wrappers, silly child I was. There used to be a couple of Dolly Madison bakery store outlets in Chicago where they sold all the products. I think Dolly Madison still makes Zingers.

Oh how I wish we could still get these! According to several seconds of internet research I just performed, Dolly Madison is owned by Hostess.

I completely remember, but I also remember being very confused cuz no one sold Dolly Madison anything in my neck of the woods.

I do remember Dolly Madison commercials during the Peanuts specials - and now that you mention it - at no other time...

We were a Hostess family, though. We didn't get that special of a treat very often, but when we did, it was always Hostess. I think that Ding Dongs were my favorite, but nothing beat the sheer indulgence of a 2-pack of Suzy-Q's... all that gooey cream just oozing out in every bite... *drool, drool*

Whoa! (shakes head vigorously) back to my granola bar and green tea mid-morning snack... *sighhh*

Everyone: To be honest I've never had anything by Dolly Madison. My faves were Hostess Twinkies and Suzy Q's...

I still remember the 'stars and stripes' zingers they had in '76 to celebrate the bicentennial. Delicious. They had little stars on them made from hard icing. I'll never forget them.

I get a little sad when "A Charlie Brown Christmas" comes on and the announcer says, "Sponsored by [not Dolly Madison]". I almost think it should run as part of the show. It just doesn't seem right for them not to say "Dolly Madison".

Blast From the Past is right: I never saw/heard of them other than that. My mom never bought stuff like that, so I was never quite sure what they were.

joe said...

Anon: Don't remember those. You stumped me there.

Chris: My mom never bought Dolly Madison. It was always either Twinkies or Suzy Q's.

Renae said...

Oh my goodness, I remember these pies! My dad used to buy them, we hated them. My mom would cut them in half and put them in our lunches, with the apple half and the peanut butter sandwich...ahh bag lunches!

joe said...

I never had those but I had the hostess pies. I liked the cherry pies. Mom never bought Dolly Madison.

Typical marketing at play here.

The Dolly Madison deal lasted into the 1990's I recall. I wish they were still using the gang though today, they don't even make fruit pies anymore.

At least some writer on Robot Chicken remembers..
