Today’s Food History

on this day in…

1861 William Wrigley, Jr. was born. William Wrigley Jr. started out as a traveling salesman at the age of 13, selling soap for his father’s company. He had a series of sales jobs, one which gave chewing gum as a premium. Customers liked the gum better than the product, so he was soon marketing his own gum, Juicy Fruit in 1893, and later that year Wrigley’s Spearmint. He was an advertising genius, and his company became one of the largest advertisers in the U.S., and the largest chewing gum manufacturer in the world.

1958 The Frisbee was patented. The pie tins of the Frisbee Pie Company of Connecticut were the inspiration for the creation of the Frisbee. A Wham-O employee supposedly saw drivers for the pie company showing Yale students how to throw the pie tins.

1960 The last episode of ‘The Howdy Doody Show’ airs on NBC.

1962 The United Farm Workers union is founded by Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta.

1982 The TV show ‘Cheers’ debuted.

2004 California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed into law a bill that bans the production and sale of foie gras beginning in 2012.

1861 William Wrigley, Jr. was born. William Wrigley Jr. started out as a traveling salesman at the age of 13, selling soap for his father’s company. He had a series of sales jobs, one which gave chewing gum as a premium. Customers liked the gum better than the product, so he was soon marketing his own gum, Juicy Fruit in 1893, and later that year Wrigley’s Spearmint. He was an advertising genius, and his company became one of the largest advertisers in the U.S., and the largest chewing gum manufacturer in the world.

1958 The Frisbee was patented. The pie tins of the Frisbee Pie Company of Connecticut were the inspiration for the creation of the Frisbee. A Wham-O employee supposedly saw drivers for the pie company showing Yale students how to throw the pie tins.

1960 The last episode of ‘The Howdy Doody Show’ airs on NBC.

1962 The United Farm Workers union is founded by Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta.

1024px-caramels

 

  • While the origin is unknown, it’s speculated that American setllers in 1650 were making hard toffee candies in kettles.

 

15662697285_b851ac8f91_b

 

  • In 1960, Vito Raimondi, with the help of his uncle William Raimondi, invented and patented the first caramel apple machine.

 

15847438816_fb55feb40c_b

  • Caramel coloring, a dark, bitter-tasting liquid, is the highly concentrated product of near total caramelization, bottled for commercial use. It is used as food coloring and in beverages, such as cola.

Today’s Food History

o 1764 The Sugar Act passed in Britain, placing new restrictions on the import of molasses to America.

o 1806 Isaac Quintard patented the apple cider mill.

o 1858 W. Atlee Burpee was born. Founder of the world’s largest mail-order seed company in 1876.

o 1881 Edwing Houston and Elihu Thomson patented a centrifugal separator, which could be used in separating milk.

o 1981 Bob Hite died. Singer with Canned Heat.

o 1994 Andre Tchelistcheff died.

He was also an authority on the types of soil suitable for growing various grape varieties.
