There's nothing like the scent of gingerbread cookies wafting in the air to let you know that the holidays are near. If you're like me, you may also smile and chuckle fondly while you remember the catchphrase of the fabled Gingerbread Man.
"Run, run, fast as you can,
You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man!"
Besides being a symbol of the holiday season, gingerbread cookies are a treat in themselves! The mouthwatering concoction combines spices, cinnamon, ginger, and honey or molasses into one delicious cookie. When you consider that they also have fun decorations with tasty icing, it's no wonder that it's a favorite treat for many people across the world.
Now that the holidays are around the corner, we wanted to shine a spotlight on the history of gingerbread, how our special Frosted Gingerbread e-liquid flavor is almost like the real thing, and why it's a great holiday gift idea!
People have loved ginger for thousands of years. The ancient Egyptians and Greeks also used it for religious and ceremonial purposes. Ginger root was also used to treat certain physical ailments including inflammation, digestion issues and other health conditions by the Chinese starting in the 10th century.
Ginger became popular in Europe during the Middle Ages, where it was used to disguise the odor and taste of rotting meat. Eventually, people in France, Germany, and England started to use ginger to make gingerbread cookies and sold it in various markets to celebrate the holidays. It wasn't long before giving someone a gingerbread cookie became a symbol of how much they loved them.
Historians believe it was the Germans who first created the concept of Gingerbread houses in the 16th century. The demand for gingerbread houses increased at that time due to the popularity of the fable Hansel and Gretel by Brothers Grimm. Children loved hearing the tale of the brother and sister who were tempted by a wicked witch with a gingerbread house adorned with candy.
Queen Elizabeth I of England is credited with creating the first gingerbread man cookie. She instructed her baker to make them resemble her dinner guests, right down to decorating the cookie with colored icing to mimic their hair and clothes. The cookies were a success and made a good impression on the important political guests and dignitaries who visited Queen Elizabeth during her reign.
Over time, gingerbread cookies became a status symbol to Europeans. Wealthy families used expensive edible gold leaves to decorate their cookies while the middle class used icing. Soon the act of decorating gingerbread cookies became an art form. Cookies were made in various shapes to celebrate the different seasons of the year and to symbolize religious tokens and royal figureheads.
English colonists and German immigrants brought their recipes for gingerbread cookies and houses with them to the American colonies. Now it's hard not to associate the smell of gingerbread cookies with holiday festivities!
