18-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Friday, August 22, 1913: Nothing much doing.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Since Grandma didn’t write much a hundred years ago today, I’ll share a hundred-year-old advertisement for Hydrox cookies and other biscuits made by Sunshine.
Hydrox cookies bring back warm fuzzy memories, and I was disappointed to discover that they are no longer made.
According to Wikipedia they were first made in 1908 by the Sunshine Company. For some unknown reason the cookie’s name was derived from the atomic elements that make up water: hydrogen and oxygen.
Sunshine was sold to Keebler and later Kellogg. Hydrox cookies were discontinued in 2009.
