THE GROCERY STORE
For years, this bright red label has jumped out at me every time my kids have called for pancakes. Not only was the syrup bottle, but also the bright red box of instant pancake and waffle mix. Guess what? Apparently I’m a creature of habit because I recently went shopping and that’s what happened.
I went down to the island to get my pancake mix and my syrup, and noticed, as always, the bright red label. Honestly, I didn’t realize until I got home, that Aunt Jemima was missing.
THIS BRIGHT RED LABEL
Almost everything on the label is still the same except Aunt Jemima’s name and photo. The small circle at the top of the label had a photo of the fictional character “Aunt Jemima”, and now has a photo of the REAL Aunt Jemima, who was not a person at all. Instant Pancake Mix is the start of a business called “La Perle Milling Company”, who started making Instant Pancake Mix in 1889.
Recent changes are bittersweet. There is a long history of knowing the face and name “Aunt Jemima”. Although Aunt Jemima’s beginnings have links to slavery, as the very first Aunt Jemima was portrayed by a woman born into slavery named Nancy Green, the brand is now committed to helping raise women and girls. black women in the food industry, be it culinary arts, food innovation, food science and media support. They provide $ 1 million in grants to nonprofit organizations that help fulfill this mission. You can find out more by visiting the Home page of pearl grinding companies.
