Pop N' Fresh (1966 - 1997) Beloved Doughboy Dies.
Veteran Pillsbury spokesman Pop N' Fresh died Monday of a yeast
infection. He was 31. Fresh was buried Wednesday in one of the
biggest funerals in years. Dozens of celebrities were present,
including Betty Crocker, Mrs.
Butterworth, the keebler elves, and Hungry Jack. The grave side was
piled high with flours; long time friend Aunt Jemina delivered the
eulogy, describing Fresh as a man who "never knew how badly he was
Kneaded." Fresh rose quickly in
show business, but his later life was filed with turnovers, He
wasn't considered a smart cookie and wasted much of his dough on hal:
baked schemes. Still., even as a crusty old man,, he was a roll model
for millions. Fresh is survived
by his second wife. They had two children and one in the oven.
