Beyond the biscuit

I really am not joking, but there are folks in town who think all of this talk of a new cracker plant has something to do with Nabisco.

Speaking of bakeries, who says the cupcake innovation craze in Pittsburgh was a modernism?  Pittsburgh was way ahead of the curve.  Points for those who connect the dots there.  You know what is great about that patent?  It was referenced in another patent by Starbucks not too long ago.  Where is Mike? I may have to consider a career change to IP lawyer.

More cracker history... all this cracker talk just brings to mind:

If I follow the trail of cracker crumbs, I find that Sylvester S. Marvin, once known as "the Edison of Manufacturing" and a major late 19th century Pittsburgh East Ender, was the founder of S.S. Marvin Co. in Pittsburgh, one of the predecessors of Nabisco.
