Howard and his daughter arrive at the McFly residence to sell Sophie Mae peanut brittle to George McFly. Well, it's all for a good cause...

A box of Sophie Mae peanut brittle is on the table in front of George at dinner, as he enjoys a rerun of The Honeymooners.

Sophie Mae was a brand of peanut brittle in 1985.


Howard's daughter was a Girl Scout,[1] who was selling Sophie Mae peanut brittle for $5.00 a case to raise money for her baseball team, and arrived, wearing her baseball team uniform and carrying an entire case of peanut brittle, with her father at the front door of the McFly residence, whereupon Howard pressured George McFly to purchase the case.

A box of Sophie Mae peanut brittle was present on the table at dinner, and George poured some of the confection into a bowl.

Behind the scenes

  • In the novelization, Howard's daughter is only referred to, and there is no scene where the pair appear at the front door. She is also mentioned as selling Girl Scout cookies rather than peanut brittle.
