As with the introduction of Goldfish Baked with Whole Grain last year, we are always looking to provide wholesome snacking fun and smiles to all families.”
Pepperidge Farm, based in Norwalk, Connecticut, introduced its Goldfish crackers in 1962 after founder Margaret Rudkin discovered them on a trip to Switzerland.
