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.
Here are some fun facts about the company:
  • 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  • Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish crackers were originally made and marketed in Switzerland as “Goldfish Tiny Crackers” before being brought to the U.S. by Margaret Rudkin in 1962.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
  • Each year, Pepperidge Farm uses about 390 million pounds of flour

Connect With Pepperidge Farms

We have been a fan of Pepperidge Farms products for years Goldfish,breads,cookies,and other snacks. I was pretty excited to try the bold new flavors of Jingos! and the new Milano sweets as well.

Jingos! are just as described ~ BOLD, but inadelicious blend of flavor.Theywere all good and flavors melded together well.My favorite flavor was the Lime & Sweet Chili!!

If you are a fan of the Milano cookies then the Milano Slices will be on your shopping list. They are so good. I loved the sweet and salty blend of the chocolate and pretzels. The Milano Melts Vanilla Cremes were a little overwhelmingly sweet for me but my little one LOVED them. I would definitely recommend trying out the new flavors that Pepperidge Farm  has out for now and help them celebrate 75 years of yumminess!
