Today is National Frozen Food Day. Tue, 03/6/12 8:28 AM (permalink)
This is National Frozen Food Day. That's because on this day in 1930, the first frozen foods were put on sale in food stores. It bore the brand of the man credited with inventing the modern method of freezing food: Clarence Birdseye, whose work created the entire frozen-food industry. I'd say we paid a price in flavor there, but freezing did bring the price of food down while vastly improving the availability of certain edibles that would have been available only in season previously, or not at all

Today, the Frozen Food Market is a $28 BILLION dollar industry in the USA..
When you add in all the refrigeration equipment required to support the industry, like processing equipment, refrigerated trucks, freezers, etc who knows what the total value is.
So, how has the availability of frozen food influenced your life?
Tell us about your most and least favorite brands and the frozen food dish you like the best.
