Unfortunately the BBB actually carries no legal authority nor is there any way for a business to be compelled to answer a complaint.  If unresolved, the worst "penalty" about a concern is that the open complaint remains posted on the BBB site for 3 years.
Yes everyone knows this but many businesses don't want the blemishes because over time too many blemishes equals impact on business.  I've never had a Better Business Bureau complaint not receive a response from a company

Don’t think I ever looked this one up to see what the real product name is, or what it looks like.  Very cool that there’s a real kid to spoof, much like Slayskool.

Imagine being the kid who was on the advertising that got spoofed?  I know the woman who was the Sunbeam Bread girl, and she got a kick out of the Wacky.

It pains me to even bring this up. When I was kid, in my neighborhood lived a kid whos father worked for Topps. He used to bring home uncut sheets of wackys all the time. I was given a series 5, 6, 7, 9 sheet. Of course what do you think I did with them???

You win. Of course, these items wouldn't be so uncommon if nearly everyone who had them didn't cut, peel or throw them away. It's like baseball cards from the '50's being scarce because everybody's mom tossed them.

OTOH, George Wright (Sore Mel) saved all his wrappers from the beginning. It seems almost unimaginable that a kid back then would have that kind of foresight.

I noticed that too, but went by the countdown clock. It might have confused a few people, though.

Yep, they should word it differently next month - "Available one week only!"

Not to mention copyright infringement on the pin-up art itself, which has the general look of a renowned artist named Gil Elvgren.  Legal issues aside, how superimposing images of sexy women onto Wacky backgrounds has any appeal at all is baffling to me.  What is the context?  The images have no relevance to the product, parody or gags.  If I drew pictures of fruits and vegetables and taped them over the faces of players on baseball cards, it would make about as much sense as these Wacky ‘variations.’

Can’t.... resist...
