Gasparini, a Swiss pastry cook from the small town of Meiringen developed a mixture of beaten egg whites and sugar in the early 18th century. He called his creation a meringue.

Marie Antoinette had a sweet tooth; she loved meringues, even making them with her own hands.

When the Oreo cookie was first made in 1912, there was a lemon meringue flavor. It was discontinued in 1920.
