In 1942 Illustrator Ellen Segner was commissioned by the Quality Bakers of America. She designed a marketing symbol of a young child. She worked hard submitting hundreds of sketches. Then she finally came across the perfect one. This little girl became the first ‘Little Miss Sunbeam ‘ in Southern Indiana. She was drawn at Washington Square Park in New York City. She observed the little blond-haired, blue-eyed little girl for days playing in the park.
I am a Merchandiser for Lewis bakery, which handles this Sunbeam bread. I always thought the packaging was eye-catching. The ‘Little Miss Sunbeam’ girl on the packaging just makes you want to bite into a slice of buttered bread. I am not getting money for this review, just helping customers remember an old-time favorite, and helping it become a new favorite for generations to come.
Sunbeam breads are soft and hold together nicely. It has a very pleasant aroma. Now add that to the cute packaging and you should get hungry for a slice of Sunbeam bread.
