    Historical Context

    The Pillsbury Company is home to Poppin' Fresh the Doughboy, Hungry Jack, and the Jolly Green Giant. Founded in 1869 as a flour mill, Pillsbury is a leader in the packaged foods industry and a subsidiary of its former archrival, General Mills.

    Pillsbury serves up a buffet of food products, featuring waffles and pancakes for breakfast, pizza and soup for lunch, and tacos and vegetables for dinner. There's also the company's namesake line of baking products and its Haagen-Daz ice cream for dessert. With operations on six continents and a brand presence in virtually every aisle of the supermarket, Pillsbury has recently streamlined its grocery list to focus on its bestsellers.

    Pillsbury was purchased by General Mills in 2001, and I still the leading producer of refrigerated dough in the U.S.

    Remember the Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest? The first one took place in 1949.
