Amedeo Obici   (July 15, 1877 – May 22, 1947)

 

In 1906, Italian immigrant Amedeo Obici, along with his
friend and business partner, Mario Peruzzi, founded
Planters Peanut Company in Wilkes-Barre, PA. He
started his career as a bellhop and fruit stand vender
in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Obici later moved to Wilkes-
Barre, opened his own fruit stand, and invested in a
peanut roaster. He turned peddler within a few years,
using a horse and wagon, and calling himself "The
Peanut Specialist". Today, the snack food company
is a division of
Kraft Foods.

It is often incorrectly reported that the chocolate chip cookie was
an accident, and that Wakefield expected the chocolate chunks to
melt making chocolate cookies. In reality, Wakefield stated that she
deliberately invented the cookie. She said, "We had been serving a
thin butterscotch nut cookie with ice cream. Everybody seemed
to love it, but I was trying to give them something different. So I
came up with Toll House cookie." (
