DID YOU KNOW?
Refrigerated crescent rolls were invented by Pillsbury in 1965. They get their name from their French counterpart, the croissant, which is a similarly shaped pastry. In fact, “crescent” is the literal translation of the French word “croissant”.
To promote the launch of crescent rolls, the company debuted the Pillsbury Doughboy, also known as Poppin’ Fresh, in 1965. The first commercial featuring the Pillsbury Doughboy was made using stop-action claymation. The clay model that was used in the commercial cost $16,000 to create! The new mascot became so popular that a 7-inch Pillsbury Doughboy doll was released 1972.
Crescent rolls come in over 8 different varieties, including seamless dough sheets, and are a very popular ingredient in casserole recipes.
