  • I Literally Just watched the episode of _The Food That Built America_ about this and you got the Story wrong The Loose brothers, together, formed the American Biscuit Company, but where pushed out by their Lawyer Adolphus Green who merged ABC with other Consolidated Bakeries to form the National Biscuit Company (NaBisCo) Loose-Wiles' Sunshine Biscuits created the Hydrox while Nabisco was rolling out the Inersealed Uneeda Biscuit. And fun Fact, when Nabisco got to making the Oreo they cut a deal with Hershey for the chocolate.
