Europeans have been making Gingerbread for more than 1000 years, each country having it’s own special recipe. At some point folks in Northern Europe started making houses and people out of Gingerbread for holiday markets. The town of Bergen, Norway builds an entire Gingerbread town.
Thus was born the Gingerbread Man.
The popular cookie hopped the Atlantic with Europeans and has been with us ever since.
The famed Waldorf Astoria, in New York City created this liquid version you to enjoy this holiday season.
