Pepperidge Farm is a brand that’s been around since the post-World War II 1940s. In addition to its iconic Goldfish cracker (since 1962), it’s known for puff-pastry fruit turnovers, frozen breads and rolls, and “exotic” cookies — Milano, Brussels, Geneva, Tahiti, Chesapeake and so on.
However, getting away from dark chocolate and fancy names and back to cookie basics, the billion-dollar baker also offers its Sweet & Simple line of 11 “cookie jar classics,” made with “just a few, humble ingredients.” There’s a bit of nostalgia associated with crunchy, sugar-topped Gingerman and tangy Lemon ($4), as there is with Shortbread and Sugar, Chessmen and Snickerdoodle.
