Celebrating Morton Salt Girl's 100th Birthday - #MortonSaltGirl100

An American icon has reached a birthday milestone; the Morton Salt Girl turned 100! Since the Morton Salt Girl first appeared on the blue package of Morton table salt in 1914, she's been an inspiring and enriching part of our lives. And she's still the one we trust, whether it's in our food or in and around our homes and businesses. Everywhere she goes, she helps make life better. As part of the big celebration, I was able to participate by hosting one of 100 parties in 100 cities over 100 days.

With all the tools needed to host a celebration befitting of an American icon, I had a few girls over for themed activities, games, and snacks. Using Morton All-Purpose Natural Sea Salt, I created some Sweet & Salty Candied Nuts. We also played a trivia game to test our knowledge of salt and history of Morton Salt. Just a couple of interesting things we learned was that the Morton Salt Girl is not modeled after a real person and the 1968 design of the Morton Salt Girl is largely the same one we know and love today.

Using Morton Natural Epsom Salt (Plain), each person was treated to a Paradise Foot Scrub to moisturize and soften the feet. While everyone soaked their feet for a few minutes, we all discussed what we like about Morton Salt and our favorite foods that incorporate salt. After the discussion, feet were fancied up with a pedicure. Party guests were given Morton Salt coupons for future use.

Morton Salt is a household name brand and the Morton Salt Girl is a recognizable icon. My guests and I enjoyed our time together learning, gabbing, snacking, and relaxing.

Happy 100th Birthday, Morton Salt Girl!
