The Best Thing Since ... You Know

Sliced bread became a thing on July 7, 1928.
July 7, 1928
What was the best thing BEFORE sliced bread? On this day in 1928, Chillicothe Baking Company of Chillicothe, Missouri produced “the greatest forward step in the baking industry since bread was wrapped” – sliced bread. Kleen Maid Sliced Bread was an instant success thanks to Otto Frederick Rohwedder bread-slicing invention. (We would have had sliced bread sooner, but Rohwedder’s proto type was lost in a fire in 1912.) Battle Creek, Michigan likes to boast that they were the first to sell the sliced bread, but apparently, there is no proof to back up this claim.
