Junket Desserts was founded in Denmark in 1874 by Christian Hansen, a chemist fascinated by the possibilities of rennet. In developing an American market, the company focused on the ability of rennet to make junket, a type of custard. In the early 20th century, Junket Desserts developed the character of Little Miss Junket. The little girl was shown holding delicious treats and urged consumers to "Have Some Junket!" She featured heavily in the company's advertising materials, including recipe books, magazines, and World Fair souvenirs.
