The best pre-packaged baked goods in America are Entenmann’s. Without question.
Sold exclusively in supermarkets.
The last of the Entenmann entrepreneurs was Charles Entenmann who died February 24 at age 92.
A family business which began in 1898 in Brooklyn. Grandfather Entenmann was a German immigrant who started the business. He would deliver his baked goods to homes in a horse drawn wagon.
The business moved to Bay Shore, Long Island, in 1900. The same delivery format used. With a noteworthy addition. The business’ clientele. Like the Morgans and Vanderbilts.
When grandfather passed on, Charles father and mother ran the business. Father Entenmann passed on.
In 1951, Charles, his mother and two brothers decided to start supplying supermarkets with their baked goods. At the same time introducing “see through” packaging.
The quality and packaging lured customers to supermarket shelves. Business boomed big time.
A huge baking facility was built on 5 acres in Bay Shore. Later expanded to 14 acres.
The company was sold in 1978 to Warner-Lambert for $233 million. It has exchanged hands several times since. It is presently owned by Bunter Bakeries USA.
Charles was the last of the Entenmann dynasty to head the business.
Charles and his family preceding him all did a top notch job in planning and running the business. Otherwise, none of us would enjoy the great baked goods we consume.
Guy Reffitt can best be described as a smart ass, a know it all.
Reffitt was one of the “leaders” on site January 6. A member of the “Three Percenters,” a Texas militia, and supporter of Donald Trump.
Tuesday he was found guilty in federal court in Washington, D.C., of 5 felonies. A jury trial. In fact, the first trial of any of the January 6 perpetrators.
The jury deliberated less than 4 hours.
He faces up to 60 years in jail.
Many witnesses testified against him. Including his son who turned him in and a daughter who testified against him in a pre-trial hearing.
Following the decision, Reffitt said it was not over yet. My sense is he was referring to another insurrection being necessary and would be the result of actions by those of his muster.
Mrs. Reffitt was obviously distressed. She warned others charged not to plead guilty. To do as her husband had done: Fight on.
I read somewhere this morning that Putin is the “new coronavirus.” Sounds fitting.
The Ukraine needs planes. The Poland deal died over the weekend following Putin’s threat warning Poland there would be “consequences” if Poland proceeded with the plan.
Poland immediately backed down.
Poland’s suggestion is the entire of NATO take the position the U.S. and others wanted Poland to take.
My admonition: Work it out folks! Too many people dying, too many people with homes destroyed, too many Ukraine women and children leaving the Ukraine for the safety of another nation, etc.
Never have I seen what in effect is a worldwide retaliation as is occurring against Russia. More and more corporations doing business with Russia cutting their ties. Sanctions galore being imposed.
Three of the most recent are McDonald’s, Coca-Cola and Starbucks. McDonald’s is closing 860 restaurants. Starbucks 100 coffee shops.
Enjoy your day!
