Nearly everyone knows what a saltine cracker is. Believe it or not, these square golden crackers have been around for more than 200 years. They can be traced back to the 1800s. The Josiah Bent Bakery in Newburyport, Massachusetts, is responsible for the original saltine cracker recipe. The bakery's competitor released pilot bread, and Josiah Bent Bakery's owner diligently watched this product's sales. Finally, in 1801 the owner decided he could create a cracker that not only tasted better but a cracker that could be shipped to different ports. After a few trial runs, the bakery finally came up with a light yet crisp cracker dubbed the soda cracker.
Fast-forward 75 years later, F.L. Sommer Company released the first name brand of saltine crackers called Premium in 1876. F.L. Sommer company used the same recipe that was developed 75 years earlier by the Josiah Bent Bakery. Eventually, the name was changed to saltines due to the baking salt used in the recipe, and more than 200 years later, we are still enjoying these square crackers of joy!
