When my boys and their friends were kids and underfoot and always hungry; gingersnaps did not last long after coming from the oven. I like making cookies, and gingersnaps are one of my favorites for making and eating.
Boys are no longer kids; they and their friends have their own families and homes and I no longer bake as many cookies. I do buy Nabisco Old Fashioned Ginger Snaps® to satisfy my hunger for molasses and ginger.
I find a variety of Nabisco products at our local Wal Mart. Individual cartons of Nabisco Old Fashioned Ginger Snaps® run about $4.50. As with all things today, transportation costs and shelf stocking fees are driving all costs upward.

Old Fashioned Ginger Snaps® cookies are made with actual ginger and are not artificially flavored. Molasses, not artificially flavored syrup is used to produce a cooky that has no saturated fat, no cholesterol and is low in fat. Molasses, and ginger root are a particularly flavorsome combination when blended into a tasty cooky.
Husband and I both like gingersnaps. I like the soft homemade versions I made when my kids were little, and I like the crisper, snappy ones marketed by Nabisco.
Because I enjoy history and genealogy I particularly enjoy gingersnaps. Ginger and molasses have long been available, no doubt a long ago grandmother made gingersnap cookies for her children that would be much the same as the ones we eat today. I like that sense of connection with long departed ancestors. Old Fashioned Ginger Snaps® are delicious, crisp and have a nice crunch when bitten into.
The superb flavor presented by a thorough combining of the various ingredients used by Nabisco for making Old Fashioned Ginger Snaps® lends the cookies for use as an ingredient in a number of recipes. Crushed Ginger Snaps®provide an excellent foundation as crumb crust for pies. An easy method for crushing snaps is to place cookies in a ziplock bag and roll vigorously with a rolling pin. Ginger Snap® crumbs provide a nice alternative to graham cracker crumbs or crumbs made from other crisp type cookies.
Because ginger snaps are not artificially flavored, have no saturated fat, or cholesterol and are low in fat the cookies offer a more wholesome option when a snack attack hits.
Old Fashioned Ginger Snaps® have a zesty, bracing tang which may be a tad overpowering for very young kids. The cookies are a good grown up- treat.
As an alternative to bread pudding which Husband and I do enjoy very much, Gingersnaps can be used to provide a tasty dessert with a bit of kick.

Nabisco, which dates its inception to 1898, is a brand of cookies and snacks. The 1890s was a season during which the bakery business here in the United States was undergoing a lot of reorganizing.
During the period of reorganization; bakeries across the country were first merged and consolidated and then grouped by region. Several consolidations resulted in large consolidated companies including American Biscuit and Manufacturing Company which was formed from the union of 40 Midwestern bakeries in 1830. Another major company the New York Biscuit Company was came about as a result of the consolidation of several eastern bakeries. Another large conglomerate was the United States Baking Company.
In 1898, a merger uniting American Biscuit and Manufacturing Company, United States Baking Company, the New York Biscuit Company, created the National Biscuit Company.
The merger resulted in a huge company having 114 bakeries across the United States and headquartered in New York City. The "biscuit" in the name of the company is a British English and early American English term for cracker products.
Headquartered in East Hanover, New Jersey, Nabisco is a subsidiary of Kraft Foods.
