A Bit of History

These classic treats were invented in 1847 by Oliver Chase, a Boston pharmacist, when developing the first cutter for pills. Union soldiers ate the wafers, as did Arctic explorers. They were also among the first to be machine-wrapped, an important hygienic step during the polio epidemic!
