: But isn't Sanders out of business, or was that Strohs? They made ice cream as well. BBut you get the grand prize if you tell us what Bob-Lo actually sstands for (in the correct language) :)

You believed "Renee" was of French ancestry and would know this?

Or did you want an answer?

Answer: farfetched, I don't believe that Bob-Lo is the closest non-French-speaking people could come up with, but here's the official urban legend on the origin of the name:

"Bob-Lo was the best the non-French locals could do with the pronunciation of Bois Blanc, and it stuck and became official in 1949. "
