Heritage Mills Lunch Milk Crackers

Classic Lunch Milk Crackers by Heritage Mills have been described as, ” a great snack cracker” but at FamousFoods.com we think they are more than that. Through discussions with relatives, costumers, and foodie fans alike, we have found that these lunch milk crackers do more than just fill our stomachs. Individuals who grew up eating milk crackers know that there are fond memories attached to every serving of light and crispy crackers. Like Diane, who shared this fond moment of her and her grandfather on our Facebook page:

“When I was a kid, my grandfather would lay several [ lunch milk crackers ] on a plate, heat boiling water and slowly pour over them and then drain water off and sprinkle sugar or cinnamon sugar on them and give me a spoon! They were yummy…”

Never Fail Fudge Recipe

Marshmallow Fluff is still produced by the same batch process developed over 75 years ago – it’s the only marshmallow creme made in this manner. It also serves as the perfect ingredient in your fudge recipe–might we add “Never Fail Fudge” to this statement?  As you may have experienced fudge made with Marshmallow Fluff is deliciously rich and difficult to mess up!

fudge recipe

Would you believe that Marshmallow Fluff started out of the kitchen of two war veterans? Well, as the story goes, two men named H. Allen Durkee and Fred L. Mower did just that in 1920 after acquiring the recipe from Archibald Query of Somerville, MA. Mr. Query had begun the business of fluff in 1917, but the strains of wartime shortages left sales dwindling. He was however willing to sell, and did so for $500. (Bet he wished he kept it!) During the evening, Durkee and Mower would cook that sugary confection in the kitchen and sell door to door during the day. At that time the men had chosen the name of “Toot Sweet Marshmallow Fluff” – that name did not last for long, as we all know to refer to the magical sweet stuff as “Marshmallow Fluff” but the sales did last!
