It was 1897 when, concerned about her stylish figure, the talented opera singer Miss Nellie Melba sent the famed Parisian chef Auguste Escoffier back to the kitchen. Her complaint was that her bread was much too thick. Escoffier returned to Ms. Melbas table with a thinly sliced piece of toasted bread, and promptly named it Melba toast in her honor. Nellie Melbas name would go on forever, just like she always said it would.
The first Melba oven was built in 1932, leading to the development of the Melba Round. These improvements allowed Old London to introduce the first restaurant packs to the public, gaining widespread approval. Today Old London carries over 20 flavors of authentic, original, crunchy taste sensations in Rounds and Toasts.
