While we might not know the farmers who provide us with our produce, most of us are very familiar with the people who represent the brands of our favorite processed foods.

We've grown up knowing and turning to "Tony the Tiger" for our frosted flakes, "Aunt Jemima" for breakfast syrup, and the "Keebler Elves" for our chocolate chip cookies. Many of us can recall the words and melody to their jingles ("they're GGGGREAT!") better than our own National Anthem.

But despite turning to some of these names everyday for years on end, what do we really know about these food-brand mascot and the companies they represent? We can spot their friendly, iconic faces, from across a room. But do we know anything more?

Take the quiz below to test your knowledge of the food you eat. You might be surprised by what you find. Some of these characters were important people, some were quite quirky, and others, well, just came out of thin air.
