Pepperidge Farm Remembers
Pepperidge Farm remembers refers to a popular image macro series, taken from Family Guy, inspired by the tagline of the commercial bakery.
The meme is used for expressing nostalgia, reminiscing about old practices and trivia.
The slogan “Pepperidge Farm remembers” originates from the early 1980’s, when a TV commercial of the bakery depicted an old man, recollecting his thoughts about his grandma’s raisin bread, stating in the end that “Pepperidge Farm remembers”.
It was reintroduced in the lives of people in 2006, when Family Guy aired its Season 5 Episode 3 chapter, titled “Hell Comes to Quahog”.
