** Not everything about these donuts seems to be on the square!

** This business model needs to be updated as they were selling "Greaseless Donuts". (see "Explanation Here")

** Where'd the bar-code in the ad come from?

Expat--this image is from Google Books. The source for their scans are generally library holdings. I imagine that barcode was the library's tag for lending and cataloging.

Otherwise, I suggest time travel!

@Paul: Time travel, for sure!

Nifty idea, too bad it did not stick around. Actually Wal-mart sells triangle shaped filled donuts.

DODS--what a great set of memories and anecdotes! Many thanks for passing them on!

Now, if you could only send a dozen Brown Bobbies over the internet.....
