SHORT HISTORY OF AN ICONIC CONFECTION

Tootsie Roll is a chocolate-flavored taffy-like candy that has been manufactured in the United States since 1907. The candy has
qualities similar to both
caramels and taffy without being exactly
either confection. The
manufacturer, Tootsie Roll Industries, is
based in
Chicago, Illinois. It was the first penny candy to be
individually wrapped in America. (

BRAND NAME WILL SOON BECOME A RELIC

(Fox News) – The pancake brand’s parent company,
PepsiCo, Inc., announced it is rebranding Aunt Jemima to Pearl Milling Company.

In a press release issued Tuesday, the food and beverage giant
revealed the line of
pancake mix and syrup will maintain its
signature red color alongside the new brand name and logo,
but it will have no reference to the Aunt Jemima brand. The
brand will be retired “to make progress toward racial equality.”

Pearl Milling Company will begin appearing on products and
promotional materials in June 2021.

The Aunt Jemima pancake mix was advertised in 1889 as the
first
ready-mix
. By 1915 it had become one of the most recognized
brands in US history, and changed US trademark law.

Nancy Green portrayed Aunt Jemima at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, one of the first Black corporate models in
the United States. Subsequent advertising agencies hired dozens
of actors to perform the role as the first organized sales promotion campaign.

FACTS ABOUT THE COCA-COLA SANTA CLAUS

My hat's off to the pause that refreshes 1931

Although many credit our modern day Santa to Thomas Nast,
Santa’s jolly look all started in 1931 with legendary illustrator
Haddon Sundblom for a Coca-Cola holiday ad campaign. His
Santa has become one of the most beloved cultural icons and
an anticipated part of the Christmas holiday tradition.
