The darkside has pepperidge farm cookies..

One of Margaret Rudkin's sons suffered from severe asthma, a condition that became worse when he ate processed food. She couldn't find any bread that didn't make him ill, so in 1935 she started baking him stone-ground whole weat bread. One day she brought a loaf to the boy's doctor; he liked it so much he began recommending it to other patients. After building up a small mail-order business to local asthmatics and allergy-sufferers she expanded her customer base to inlude people who weren't ill-- and named her company after the family's 125 acre farm in Connecticut -- Pepperidge Farm.


And some Geek Love. :) A wide variety of geek represented too.. .
