This is the information I found on the Internet about Hermits:
Hermits originated in Cape Cod in Clipper Ship days. They went to sea on many a voyage, packed in canisters and tucked in sea chests.
However, I like them dipped into milk or coffee and they would never last long enough to take on a voyage...I would eat them all on the way to the airport!
