A bit about Gingerbread. With a rich history dating back to ancient times, its origins trace back to Greece. However, it gained popularity in medieval Europe, where it was shaped into intricate designs and often used in religious ceremonies. The gingerbread man's tale, as we know it, emerged in 19th-century Germany, where bakers began creating human-shaped cookies. The story gained literary fame through the Grimm Brothers' fairy tales. We love those tales!The iconic gingerbread man character came to life in the United States during the 19th century. Its popularity soared with the publication of the "Gingerbread Boy" story in various children's books. This spiced cookie character, known for outwitting various pursuers, has become a beloved figure in holiday traditions worldwide. Today, gingerbread remains a symbol of festive joy, with families and bakers continuing the tradition of crafting and enjoying these delicious, aromatic treats during the holiday season. And now, you can enjoy it sans gluten, dairy, nuts, eggs and more!
