Girl Scouts & Bread

Occasionally Girl Scouting was saluted by bread makers.

These easily tossable items are a rare find.

Little Miss Sunbeam debuted in the 1940's to promote Sunbeam Bread. Somewhere along the way she became a Brownie Girl Scout.


Are you old enough to remember when sliced bread was wrapped in cellophane? Do you remember "Bread Ends" that helped to keep the cellophane sealed?

This is an odd piece - Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt was never the Honorary President of Girl Scouts of the USA.  Her term as First Lady ended in 1909 - a few years before Girl Scouting started.

More likely, they meant Mrs. Franklin Roosevelt - who was a big Girl Scout supporter.
