Brand Represented: Chef Boyardee Canned Foods
Year Introduced: 1928

Meats, cheese, and pasta sound like a gross combination when you're expected to eat it out of a can, but if the face on the can is one you know and trust, it's all good. Chef Boyardee wasn't a figment of some cartoonist's creative mind; he was an actual chef. Ettore Boiardi is the man behind the brand and wanting the world to remember his name, he smiled for the camera and became his own brand's mascot. He was a man after Tyler Perry's own heart.
