In 1989, the Anchor Steam Brewing Company brewed a beer crafted from an ancient Sumerian RECIPE dated 1800 B.C.
The RECIPE for KFC’s famous seasoning is one of the most carefully guarded secrets in the modern world. Each half of the spice is mixed at a separate factory before being combined at a third LOCATION.
The only LOCATION in the world to bottle the original recipe Dr. Pepper is a plant in Dublin, Texas. Refusing to update their image, the plant still bottles the famous SODA (complete with cane sugar) in glass bottles.
In 2004, the Jones SODA company first released a TURKEY and gravy flavored soda, now one of the company’s trademark seasonal beverages.
Now a long standing White House tradition, the first presidential pardon of one lucky Thanksgiving TURKEY was done by President BUSH in 1989.
President H.W. BUSH was an avid junk food fan, eating nachos by the plateful and even implementing a BROCCOLI ban on Air Force One in March 1990.
In the 1930s, BROCCOLI began to reach acceptance in the U.S., and although it has been around forever, many thought the PLANT had been newly developed.
The berries of synsepalum dulcificum, better known as the miracle berry PLANT, contain a chemical called miraculin, which makes sour foods taste SWEET.
James A. Dewar, the inventor of the Twinkie, had a notorious SWEET tooth, purportedly consuming over 40,000 of the SUGARY, frosted cakes during his lifetime.
The SUGARY wonder known as Kool Aid is the official soft DRINK of Nebraska.
A 2006 study showed that coffee can help protect the liver against cirrhosis, and those who DRINK just one cup a day have their risk of liver damage reduced by 20 percent.

Fire is pretty much the coolest thing ever, second to food only because you can’t eat it. Yet, there is hope for those of you who want more fire in your stomach — the culinary art of flambé. Applying fire to food increases its awesome factor to an incomprehensible level, making the charred remains far more delectable than you could possibly dream. It’s a flexible art, and you can flambé nearly anything. Plus, it sounds totally fancy. Ice cream flambé? Hell yes. Double Down flambé? Yes, please. Cheeto flambé? It’s an easy trip to classy street. (We wouldn’t recommend Reporter flambé though. Or Everclear flambé. Those would probably end pretty badly.)
