Received a Wolferman's wooden English muffin condiment spreader as a gift along with some food. Apparently an ordinary kitchen knife is not the correct tool for applying condiments to English muffins. Since 1888? Who are these guys? Why have I never heard of them? Research followed. Founded by Fred Wolferman in Kansas City 1888. Wolferman's Bakery acquired by Harry and David in Oregon. Harry and David acquired by 1-800-Flowers in New York. Wolferman's wooden English muffin condiment spreader is made in China. The full history of Wolferman's is the epitome of 21st century corporate business. (wol404656a)
