This Idea Was the Best Idea Since Sliced Bread

It was an event that certainly went unnoticed by millions, but it is something we all take for granted. We use it usually a lunchtime and never really give it a thought. What is it? 

Well it is ”sliced bread”. That’s right, “sliced bread”. Something as simple a slicing bread made its debut back in July of 1928 and it first occurred in Missouri at the Chillicothe Baking Company. Someone at the Chillicothe Baking Company came up with the simple idea of slicing bread which people used to just tear before, and made history with the invention.

It might actually be the best idea ever since every invention after it is compared to it. If you don’t believe me, then just think about it. Anytime something new comes along you always hear the line “that’s the best idea since sliced bread”. It is a line that has been heard for some 87 years and one that will probably live on forever all because of a simple idea put in place in July of 1928 in Chillicothe, Missouri.
