Top Ten Food Facts

1. Apples, pears, cherries and plums all belong to the rose family.


2. Chocolate was used as a currency by the ancient Aztecs.


3. One fast food hamburger may contain meat from 100 different cows – definitely puts us off junk food…


4. Strawberries aren’t actually berries.


5. Honey never goes out of date – edible forms of honey have been found in ancient Egyptian tombs!


6. Coco cola was originally green…


7. A cluster of bananas is formerly called a ‘hand’ and a single banana is called a ‘finger’. Either way, they definitely taste good on pancakes…


8. Apples are better at waking you up in the morning than coffee – and healthier! So maybe go via your local grocers instead of Starbucks tomorrow morning.


9. Many mass-produced ice cream varieties contain seaweed. We don’t have any idea why, it seems very random but there must be a reason!


10. Sugar is the only taste that humans are born craving, if that makes you feel less guilty for eating that last sweet!
