"Lefevre-Utile was a biscuit firm that worked hard on it's image, and always used first-class artists to create their advertising. For them, Bouisset has a boy munching on a Lu biscuit and since the company always tried to project an upper-class image, he put him in the uniform of a prestigious private school, with a smock and a metal for scholarship. The Lu-Lu boy became a trademark used on product boxes, and can be seen to this day painted on the entire gable wall of a six story building on rue d'Auteil in Paris" (Wine Spectator 143)
