Pepperidge Farm!!! Wow it’s been 75 Years!!! Happy Anniversary!

I remember as a young girl my Dad bringing home these delightful frozen cakes home!!  Pepperidge Farm Layer Cakes!!

We absolutely loved them!!

Oh the memories these bring back,  the moist delicious cake and the cool creamy frosting!!  I still love these cakes and once in a while I will take a trip down memory lane and bring one of these home.

Recently I was asked to “test drive” a few new products from Pepperidge Farm!  But let me  share with you some Pepperidge Farm trivia!!  I found these little tidbits of info pretty cool!!

Few brands have a larger portfolio than Pepperidge Farm, which is known and loved for its many products touching the lives of families across the globe. It all began with a humble loaf of bread, which Pepperidge Farm founder Margaret Rudkin baked in her rural Connecticut kitchen. Created in 1937 to address her son’s allergy to common preservatives, Margaret’s simple recipe is the origin of a flourishing business celebrating its 75th anniversary this year.

Pepperidge Farm’s heritage is rich and very much alive today as the company—founded on a mother’s love for her son—continues Margaret’s mission to deliver the very best products (from wholesome fresh bakery items to must-have snacks), many of which are staples in American homes today.

  •    On August 15, 1937, the first “official” loaf of Pepperidge Farm all natural, whole grain bread was sold in a store for 25 cents.
  •      By September 27, 1939, one million loaves of Pepperidge Farm bread had been sold.
  •    Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish crackers were originally made and marketed in Switzerland as “Goldfish Tiny Crackers” before     being brought to the U.S. by Margaret Rudkin in 1962.
  •      The first flavors introduced stateside were Lightly Salted (Original), Cheese, Barbecue, Pizza, and Smoky.
  •      The late Julia Child used to love to serve Goldfish crackers as an appetizer before dinner.
  •      Pepperidge Farm is committed to accelerating snacking and baking advancements in the future as evidenced by the 34,000-sqare-foot Innovation Center opening this fall at the company’s headquarters in Norwalk, CT
  •      Annually, the brand produces about 558 million Milano® cookies—enough to cross the United States more than 7 times—and  bakes approximately 206 million loaves of bread
  •      Today, Pepperidge Farm employs more than 5,000 people and operates plants in nine towns

 I love the fact about Julia child serving Goldfish as an appetizer!!  Who doesn’t love those tiny cute crackers??

I am sure every toddler has eaten a ton of them!!LOL!!

Take a look at the yummy new products Pepperidge Farm has coming out!!  Jingos!!  These are delicious bite sized crackers in new trendy flavors!

I loved all the flavors but my favorite had to be the Parmesan Garlic!!  Salty Parmesan cheese and garlic!!  The other 2 flavors were pretty tasty too,  Lime & Sweet Chili and Fiesta Cheddar!  These were gobbled up by my family in no time!!

Now how about some new “SWEET” treats!!  Every one loves Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies I know I do don’t you?

Well the good folks at Pepperidge Farm decided to mix it up a bit and take the classic Milano cookie to new heights!!  First up is the Milano “Melt!!  The same tender crisp cookie wrapped around a creamy filling in the middle!!  How delicious is that???

These were Mr. Pinkcakeplate’s favorite!   He absolutely loved them!!

Now how about a salty sweet twist on the Milano??  I gotta tell you these new Slice Milanos are totally my favorite!!!  The Pretzel Slice was amazing!!  Again the same classic Milano crisp tender cookie base topped with Semi-sweet chocolate and sprinkled with salty pretzel bits!!  Oh man, over the top good!!
