Pillsbury has been making products since way back in 1872, so they have been around a while. The company was started by Charles Alfred Pillsbury and his Uncle, John Pillsbury, hence the name of the company taking on their last name as was usual for companies back then. Pillsbury was the first company to use steel rollers to process the grains in their facility and they had five mills in Mississippi, which became incorporated in 1935, as Pillsbury Flour Mills Company.
During the 1950s, Pillsbury started putting on baking competitions called bake-offs on television. And it was their famous biscuit dough that became the first prepackaged item they would sell in grocery stores in America. Now we are able to enjoy many different pre made products from this innovative company including refrigerated biscuit dough, chocolate chip cookie dough, pastry doughs and more. Of course, we all know the cute icon and mascot for Pillsbury products, known as the Pillsbury dough boy, who is known world wide as the face of the Pillsbury company name. The word biscuit comes form the Latin words bis, meaning twice, and coctus meaning cooked, which means that the two words joined as one mean - twice cooked. This is because biscuits were originally cooked twice and then slow baked in an oven to dry out. In the past, they were made as a food that was easy to bring along when traveling.
