Veteran Pillsbury spokesman Pop N. Fresh died Saturday 6-6-21 of a severe yeast infection He was 71.

He was buried Friday in one of the biggest funerals in years. Dozens of celebrities turned out including Mrs. Butterworth, the California Raisins, Hungry Jack, Betty Crocker, and the Hostess Twinkies The graveside was piled high with flours, as longtime friend Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy, describing Fresh as a man who "never knew he was kneaded".

Fresh rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not considered a smart cookie, and wasted much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Still, even as a crusty old man, he was a roll model to millions. Fresh is survived by his second wife. They had two children, and... one in the oven.

RIP N.B.

A local favorite from when they were filming Deliverance not far away...

Local legend says his line at the end of the movie where they are all having supper where he says "this corn is special"...was just an off hand comment on camera and was left in the movie...(this area is known for it's white "silver queen" sweet corn)...

It took a while for Ned to get past all the commentary and referencing etc. caused by a particular scene in Deliverance but he did it with his role in the now iconic (cult status) movie 'Shooter' as Senator Charles F. Meachum...
