For over a century, people around the world have enjoyed festive crackers for many occasions.
Traditionally crackers have been used to adorn place settings at holiday tables. Originating in London, England in the 1840’s, a confectioner began wrapping sugared candies in brightly colored paper twisted at each end. He later put the sweets in a small wrapped tube, adding a motto and a surprise gift. It was the crackle of a log in the fireplace that gave him the inspiration to create a “pop” when the wrapping was pulled apart and the festive cracker was born!
When a cracker is pulled from both ends….POP! The tube breaks open and a party hat, a joke and a surprise novelty gift are revealed. Crackers create memories and laughter, bringing family and friends together.
