45 YEARS OF CHILDREN BLOWING MEAT WHISTLES [Jan. 18th, 2006|04:29 pm]
The American Caliban
[Tags|, , , , , , , , , ]

They were hand-delivered to youngsters all over the country by Little Oscar, the diminutive chef and OSCAR MAYER goodwill ambassador who appeared with the WIENERMOBILE at events throughout the 50's and 60's. The whistles were even occasionally offered in packages of OSCAR MAYER® Hot Dogs.
Throughout the 80's, the WIENERWHISTLE seemed to have remained out of the spotlight. But then, another "first" occurred: the WIENERWHISTLE was given a whole new look.

I received my first weiner whistle at the ford museum in MI.
I will never forget that moment for as long as I live.
