Sweet And Low Turns 500 Billion Packets Old

BROOKLYN, N.Y. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Today (Nov. 2) is a sweet day for the folks who make Sweet ’N Low – it’s the day the 500 billionth little pink packet will be made at the company’s factory in Brooklyn, New York.

The first one goes back to 1956 when cafeteria owner Ben Eisenstadt decided to put saccharin powder into pink packets – to set it apart from packaged sugar – and called it Sweet ’N Low after his favorite song.

Company officials are putting the prized 500 billionth packet into a photo collage and will donate the picture as part of a photo mosaic to the Brooklyn Historical Society, who will undoubtedly put in it a sweet place of honor.
