It's been said that if life hands you lemons, make lemon-aide. And that's just what Gerry Thomas, a salesman at Swanson, did with turkeys in the early 1950s. It seems that, in 1953, Swanson overestimated how much turkey they would sell by about 260 tons. Thomas came up with the idea of frozen TV dinners. Inspired by food trays on airlines, his assembly line of women put a turkey dinner on each tray then sold it as a frozen dinner. Did it work? Swanson sold 10 million turkey dinners in 1954.
