ScanSource POS & Barcoding celebrates the first scanning of a UPC barcode with a Juicy Fruit cake, complete with an edible, scannable UPC barcode.
The idea for the cake came from the first product ever scanned at a grocery store, Marsh’s supermarket in Troy, Ohio, which was a 10-pack (50 Sticks) of Wrigley’s Juicy Fruit chewing gum. The pack is on display at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C., and one of our summer interns contacted them for the actual SKU number on the barcode, which we printed on the cake. Thanks to Couture Cakes of Greenville for the awesome cake.
