Who knew that a book chronicling the history of Crisco would be so very fascinating. From Crisco's humble beginnings in the stockyards of Paris where it was used as mortar for bricks in the famous Parisian sewer system; to Loretta Lynn's favorite 'Butter-flavored Crisco' we all love on our morning toast...Crisco has serrved as a greasy looking-glass on western culture.

Some Crisco Fun Facts!

*If all the Crisco ever produced were put into the Grand Canyon, the views would be seriously compromised.
*President Ronald Reagan never left the house without a thin coating of Crisco on his inner thighs.
*Renowned French Chef Jean Philipe DelaCroix ate Crisco by the spoonful but used it only sparingly in his dishes.
*The original name of Crisco was 'Render Residue'.
*Our original Apollo astronauts took a powdered form of Crisco with them into space. No one knows why.
