Mueller’s Elbow Macaroni remains an age old favorite. Whether you are making traditional Macaroni or a new dish, Elbows are the perfect cut. Mueller’s has been feeding American families for over 100 years. In 1867, Christian F. Mueller, a German immigrant and professional baker, began making egg noodles by hand in his home in Newark, New Jersey. Twenty three years later, Mueller opened his first factory in Newark.
