Eating from the dead: top 10 deceased food icons

Eating the dead It’s not really cannibalism but there’s a very good chance you’re eating the dead (well not literally but it’s the job of the new press to jump to conclusions.) Some of the biggest names in food aren’t as fresh as their frozen food. Here’s the ten biggest names in food branding who aren’t letting death slow them down…

Orville Redenbacher

Cause of Death: Drown in Jacuzzi
after suffering a heart attack

At age 12, he began growing his own popping corn as a 4-H project, and his hobby of raising the perfect popcorn became a lifelong obsession. He passed away in 1995, but this popcorn king’s folksy persona has such staying power that last week he was named "favorite icon" for 2007 on the Madison Avenue Advertising Walk of Fame.


Paul Newman

Cause of Death: Cancer

Paul Leonard Newman was an oscar winning actor and director. He co-founded Newman’s Own, a food company from which Newman donated all post-tax profits and royalties to charity.[5] As of October 2008, these donations had exceeded US $250 million

Mary See


Cause of Death: Unknown

When Charles A. See founded his candy company in 1921, he didn’t need to invent a figurehead, as many companies did at the time. (That same year, General Mills came up with the fictional Betty Crocker.) Charles turned to his mother, Mary See, whose principles inspired his business ethics, and whose recipes for candies such as Chocolate Walnut Fudge and Victoria Toffee were the cornerstone of his success, according to a company press kit.

Dave Thomas


Cause of Death: Cancer

Dave Thomas was an American restaurant owner and philanthropist. Thomas was the founder and chief executive officer of Wendy’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers, a fast-food restaurant chain specializing in hamburgers. He is also known for appearing in more than 800 commercial advertisements for the chain from 1989 to 2002–more than any other person in television history.

Marie Callender


Cause of Death: Cancer

Marie Callender, began selling pies to friends and restaurants as a way to make extra money. By 1948, to meet customer demand, the Callender family opened a wholesale bakery, selling the family car to finance the new company, according to a timeline from Con-Agra Foods, which now owns the Marie Callender frozen foods line (but not the restaurants or pie business.)

Sara Lee


Cause of Death: Cancer

The real Sara Lee Lubin never held a management position in the corporation but did work part-time in the plant offices. Over the years, however, she did appear as a corporate spokesperson for the company in some advertisements. She devoted her time in supporting education causes such as the advancement of woman and girls in science.

Duncan Hines

Cause of Death: Cancer

He was well-respected food critic-turned-cake-mix- king. While traveling cross-country as a salesman, he kept track of the roadside restaurants where he ate and began circulating the list as Christmas presents. In 1948, he was approached by North Carolina businessman Roy Park to lend his name to a line of premium-packaged foods. Initially, there were hundreds of products under the Hines-Park name. In 1956 Procter & Gamble bought the brand, which was eventually pared down to baking mixes

Colonel Sanders


Cause of Death: pneumonia / diagnosed with leukemia

Sanders sold the Kentucky Fried Chicken corporation, in 1964, for $2,000,000 to a partnership of Kentucky businessmen headed by John Y. Brown, Jr. The deal did not include the Canadian operations, where Sanders continued to collect franchise fees. In 1973 he sued over alleged misuse of his image in promoting products he had not helped develop. In 1975 Heublein Inc. unsuccessfully sued Sanders for libel after he publicly referred to their gravy as "sludge" with a "wallpaper taste".

Chef Boyardee

Cause of Death: Unknown
(son died of cancer)

In 1924, he opened his own Italian restaurant in Cleveland, called Il Giardi. When patrons asked for his spaghetti sauce, he began selling it in milk bottles. Then he added dry pasta and packets of cheese to go with the sauce. When he outgrew his restaurant location, he opened a food-processing plant and eventually changed the spelling. For many Americans, Chef Boyardee was their first introduction to Italian food. Although he sold his company in 1946, he continued as a consultant until his death in 1985.

Uncle Ben


Cause of Death: Unknown

The real "Uncle Ben" was a rice farmer from Houston, Texas, whose rice crop continually won awards for its high quality, according to information from the The Museum of Public Relations. In the 1940s, Gordon L. Harwell decided to name his rice company after the farmer, who had passed away. Hardwell used the maitre d’ of a Chicago restaurant, Frank Brown, to represent the image of "Uncle Ben." For many years, the brand drew criticism for racist overtones.


Based on my research it is clear that their food causes cancer.

  1. It’s not widely known but dead human hair is actually used by the food industry as an additive to flavour enhancers for crisps – and it’s 100% Kosher too! Heard a fascinating Radio program on the BBC4 that accompanied a Rabbi on his trip to China visiting the hair dressing shops and factories to ensure the the hair being sent to the food factories for use was indeed Kosher. Kind of put me off flavoured crisps after that though!

  3. I heard that some fast food restaurants use dead aliens in there burgers and fairy’s bollocks(balls), to flavor the fries.

    I bit into a fish burger once and broke my tooth on a piece of metal rudder from the Nautilus. I’m not lying.

    The coke had Non Terrestrial Intelligent s swimming in it, and I wish that I hadn’t drank it because they found there way to my Anal ring piece and refuse to leave. I am now Anal retentive.
