Smiley began as a loveable character for Best Maid Products in the early 1960's. The legend is that she was drawn by a Best Maid employee as a cute caricature of the founder's grand-daughter. The image was so cute that it was decided that she should be added to the Best Maid label. Today Smiley embodies what is great about Best Maid pickles. It's the taste that makes you smile!
