George Washington -was referred to as the "American Fabius" based on strategy he used when commanding his troops during the Revolutionary War. After long, hard fought battles, George would come home to his wife Martha, who would happily greet him with her warm, sweet apple pie. Made with fresh, home-grown apples from Martha's orchard, it was by far George's favorite. Wouldn't be surprised if it was your's too!
His Rotundity - (Swedish Fish Strawberry Gummy)
John Adams - Nicknamed "His Rotundity" for his short stature, and round waist, was quite the avid fisherman, among other things. His favorite place to fish was the Boston Harbor. During the Boston Tea Party, crates filled with supplies, tea, spices, and many other commodities were thrown overboard. Some of the boxes, located in the British supply, were stocked with a foreign species. Native to the coast's of Sweden, the invasive animal quickly took over the harbor's waters. Eventually becoming a delicacy to many of the Colonist's in the area, including His Rotundity himself.
Little Lion - (Blueberry, Banana-Cream)
Alexander Hamilton - also known as the "Little Lion" for his lean, athletic stature, and sharp wit, was captured by the Red Coats early on during the Revolution. Taken to a far away land, bound in shackles, with many strange beasts, Alexander found himself chained next to Livingston. A weird, exotic-creature unlike anything he had seen in the America's. Alexander befriended Livingston. Showing compassion, he plotted their escape, bringing home with him, a new ally to the war. A serum was later derived from the mane of Livingston, and was infused with extracts from his tail. Little Lion is a sweet, smooth, banana cream, with a kick of blueberry candy that will leave you clawing for more!

Sage of Monticello - (Vanilla, Key-Lime Sugar Cookie)
Thomas Jefferson - referred to as the "Sage of Monticello" for his wisdom, intellect, and self designed mansion, appropriately named Monticello, was a man of many great feats, and accomplishments. That goes without saying. A simple, lesser-known joy of his, was to indulge in a local bakery's key-lime sugar cookies. Through the strenuous hours spent revising the Declaration of Independence, Tom was said to have bought out the entire store! This delicious sugar cookie, with a dash of vanilla, and key-lime, was a treat he enjoyed well into his later years. Nibbling away, while reminiscing of the Revolution against the Red Coats.
The Orator - (Blackberry Shortcake)
Patrick Henry - known to many as "The Orator" was the voice of the Revolution. Versed well in the law of the time, he gave many speeches before, during, and after the Revolutionary War that were vital in gaining support for the cause. When Patrick wasn't busy attending his political duties, he would return to his wife, and their farm in Virginia. The land was quite exhausted from tobacco cultivation, so Patrick and Sarah decided to sow different crops. The most cherished of which were their blackberry bushes. A rich blackberry sauce, spread over crumbly shortcake would become a specialty desert of their's that we are enjoying to this day!
