Gingerbread has been around since the 15th century, and the first recorded use of a Gingerbread Man was in the court of Elizabeth I of England. The Gingerbread Man fairy tale first appeared in May 1875, in St. Nicholas Magazine in the USA. Most current interpretations of the Gingerbread man fairy tale use the saying, “Run, run as fast as you can! You can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man!”
