My 2 aunts lived in Dawson from the 1930s until the 1970s. They used to buy Cinderella Peanut Butter for us until the late 1960s when the company started packing the peanut butter for the military. I remember the peanut butter being sold in the stores in the early 1960s. They had a picture of a fairy on the labels. I bought a lid off ebay a few years ago, paid about $20 for it. It is red and white, has a fairy on it waving a wand over a peanut, says Cinderella Foods and Dawson, Georgia on it. Had it framed and it hangs in my kitchen. I remember Cinderella peanut butter as tasting very good and, more importantly, because it reminds me of my 2 lovely aunts, Mrs. Mildred Grimes and Mrs. Evelyn Fleming.
My family lived in the Dawson area for years and years and years. I was just a little girl then. My daddy used to drive a Cinderella Peanut Butter truck. I think he delivered to stores. I'm not sure at this late date. In fact, I was born in Dawson and lived there until I turned 5 years old. I'm much, much, much older now.

In the mid 1960's I worked for Stevens Industries who produced Cinderella Peanut Butter. They had contracts to provide it for the military as well as schools. Was the largest producer in the US. There was an article in Readers Digest about how the soldiers would light the oil on top of the peanut butter C Rations to heat their coffee. Because the government required that the PB be 90% plus pure peanuts, there was oil at the top of the can. Mr. Williams, the owner of Stevens was furious that they used the Peanut Butter for this purpose. I reminded him that because of the military, he was the largest producer of PB. He seemed OK with that.

Oh yeah, I meant to say that the people who lived in this house had been here since 1966. So that would make sense that my can would be from the Vietnam War times.
Ah, memories! Memories of peanuts late in the afternoon especially. The smell was still in the air a couple of weeks ago when I drove through my home town.

The peanut butter plant opened along about.... oh, 1946. It produced four brands, Cinderella being the most known.(What were the other three brands?) Yes, there was a military contract for once in about 1964 when I was officer of the day in Germany, and had to take my meals in an army mess hall, there was a large # 10 can of peanut butter from Dawson on the table!
That brought back that certain peanut smell mentioned above. In high school I worked in my father's warehouse not two blocks away from Steven's Industries.

I just tried to have some Cinderella pb on my waffles. I was the worst tasting crap ever.! My two dogs would not even try it. Them smelled it on a spoon and sneezed and walked away like I gave them repellant.

When I was in the Army in the 1970s our canned c-rations had little round tins of peanut butter in them. About an ounce and one-half I think. They were marked Cinderella Foods Dawson Georgia. It was wonderful peanut butter.

The military services used Cinderella peanut butter in c-rations for many years in the Korean War -Vietnam War period.

I lived in Sasser and went to school in Dawson about 1968. My grandmother worked for the Cinderella Peanut Butter company at one time. When I went into the Army in 1973, we were supplied with C-rations as part of our bivouac training. Mine contained an OD (olive drab) tin with Cinderella Peanut Butter with Dawson, GA noted as the production company.

It was as if I had received a package from home!

As a child I lived in Dawson, GA on 7th Avenue from 1967 to 1972. My mother was employed at Cinderella Peanut Butter. The small olive green tins of peanut butter produced for the military contract would sometimes get dents or imperfections in the cans, and not pass quality control. My mother would bring those cans, by the sack full, home to her children, (there were 5 of us) so we practically lived off the stuff, and that was not a bad situation, because it was really good tasting peanut butter. My oldest sister's fiance was training at Fort Benning for deployment to Viet Nam, and brought us some P-38 can openers to open the peanut butter with, and my friends and I thought that was the coolest thing. The P-38 can opener was the little foldable can opener included in C-rations to open the small tins of Cinderella peanut butter. Happening upon this post brought back a flood of memories from that era.

Yeah, I assumed my little can of peanut butter is a military ration. There is no date on it. Maybe it was from the Vietnam War then?
I was just st the Pentagon 2 weeks ago and saw this Peanut Butter in a display case in the Army hallway. I took a photo but canít post it here. I was in the Army from 1975-78 and ate it!
