Inspried by the thread about the Frito Bandito guy
Who was or is your favourite character from a food?
I mean store food, not fast food or resturant food or characters that were famous first then became cereals. In other word characters developed specifically to market food. And they have to be fake not real people like Mr Whipple.

[above are just examples of what I’m looking for, don’t limit yourself to just these]
Also did you ever own any merchandise by any of them
I recall I had a Frito Bandito and WC Frito erasers and I also had a stuffed Jolly Green Giant doll I got by saving up labels.
So who are your favourites, and if you must, who did you detest
