About Us.

It all started when someone very near and dear to my own heart got “FAT”…

One summer, I was preparing to travel to Hong Kong to purchase merchandise for my interior design business. I soon realized that the airlines would not allow me to smoke on the flight over, so I decided that I had to quit before my trip. By the time I returned, I had kicked my smoking habit, but in its place, I had picked up a new one. No longer was I eating Blue Bell by the dip or bowl, but I was eating it by THE GALLON!!! Needless to say, I grew and Grew and GREW!

Well, to make matters worse, I had just married this young, handsome hunk and my girlfriend kept telling me, “You’ll never keep him, either the fat goes or he goes.” Over and over again, I heard her words, but I refused to listen.

A few weeks later, I was at an antique auction and I purchased a four-drawer chest, as a joke for my girlfriend. As I examined the chest, an idea popped into my head on how to decorate it. I painted the outside of the chest with a beautiful tablecloth, gardening book and a china plate full of chocolate covered strawberries. The interior of the first drawer was painted with a Lemon Meringue pie. The second drawer had the pie with one piece missing. The third drawer had only one piece left and then, you opened the bottom drawer to find “Fat Rat’ with the last bite.

As soon as my clients and friends saw “FAT RAT™”, they had to have one. What started out as a joke in response to my friend’s advice on weight management / marriage, has grown into my fabulous “FAT RAT™” business! Each year, we add a new character to the “FAT RAT™” family – each one holds a special place in my heart.

SKIP AHEAD TO 2023! We are still here, making precious memories for you and your family!

P.S. I still have that young, handsome husband.
