Museum Of Food And Drink Displays Puffing Gun in Chinatown

Puffy the Puffing Gun, a machine that explosively puffs food, will be coming to NYC’s Chinatown Weekend Walk on Saturday, June 28th from 11AM to 4PM. The event is hosted by the Museum of Food and Drink , who will be setting up the puffing gun on Mott Street near Pell Street and the admission is free. The 3,200 pound machine was originally patented in 1939 and was the workhorse of the breakfast cereal industry.

At the event MOFAD will teach you about the history of  breakfast cereal, show a demo of the puffing gun, and let you taste some puffs! To read more about the history of the puffing gun and to view some pictures you can visit MOFAD’s website here
