One-Eyed Eskimo Label

At the Library of Congress they take on
Everyday Mysteries
and give authoritative answers. This particular link on the history of TV dinners tells us that the first packaged frozen dinners on aluminum trays with three compartments were made in 1949 and distributed by Albert and Meyer Bernstein for Frozen Dinners, Inc., under the One-Eyed Eskimo label in Pittsburgh!

Search the Everyday Mysteries archive for more. Is the coconut a nut, how are messages inserted into fortune cookies, why is the ocean blue, etc., etc.
