Jimmy Dean Chocolate Chip Pancakes & Sausage on a Stick (2006)
Jimmy Dean (yes the country singer and actor) founded a food company for breakfast sausages in 1969. Purchased by Consolidated Foods (later renamed Hillshire Brands), Jimmy is no longer even the spokesperson.
In 2006, Jimmy Dean introduced this frozen breakfast item. A sausage is nestled inside a chocolate chip pancake. Think of it like a corn dog.
The Sausage on a Stick only lasted for about a year, and if you talk to consumers you’ll get a mixed bag of reactions. Some loved it while others hated it. This junk food breakfast item was regularly ridiculed by comedian Jon Stewart on The Daily Show.
