The History of Tom Smith

It was a trip to Paris in 1840, that an adventurous and forward thinking Tom Smith discovered the ‘bon bon’ sugared almond, wrapped in a twist of tissue paper. Seven years later this simple idea evolved into what we know now as the Christmas Cracker.

By placing a small love motto in the tissue paper, he created enormous interest in this product, especially at Christmas time. It was during a search for inspiration to achieve even greater sales that he casually threw a log on the fire. The crackle sound made by the burning log gave him the idea that would eventually lead to the ‘snap’ inside the crackers we know and love today.

This year they have introduced a new cracker that is not only recyclable but for every case sold, Tom Smith will donate £2.00 to The Trussell Trust*

*The Trussell Trust supports a nationwide network of food banks to provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.  More than 14 million people are living in poverty in the UK – including 4.5 million children.
