If it ain’t broke…



My husband is sick and my new mother-in-law brought over delicious taco soup for us to eat for dinner. Luckily, I had a box of Jiffy corn muffin mix in the pantry. I am so glad they haven’t changed their packaging in what must be ages. It just makes me happy. Not sure if this is because my mom didn’t make cornbread from scratch, either. She also used the Jiffy mix. I guess it reminds me of the weekday night suppers of chili and cornbread my mom would make in the winter. Yum.

The first Jiffy mix was created in 1930 by Michigan-based Chelsea Milling Company. They produce over 1.6 million boxes of mixes a day and offer 19 varieties.

Normally, the quotes around “Jiffy” on the box would bother me, but in this case I think it’s quaint!

I can’t think of any other products that haven’t really changed their packaging. Can anyone else?

    Love it! We also had Jiffy this week, but on Monday night after Adam’s surgery. I wonder if it’s the soup or the comfort that it pairs so well with.
