Fun food facts to pick up your day!

By Megan 02 Feb 2018

For all you foodies out there, have you heard these facts before?!

 

  • Which came first - noodles or pasta? Documents in China describing noodles date from the 5th century BC, while the earliest mention of noodle-like food in the Mediterranean area comes about 500 years later

  • According to a study, 4 out of 5 children recognise the McDonald's logo by the time they are three - before some even know their own name!

  • When a labour shortage hit California in 1905, a farmer turned to 500 monkeys to harvest the prune plums. Organised into gangs of 50 with a human foreman, the monkeys picked the prune plums well but ate them all up! Today, machines do the work—without eating the fruit

  • An old Chinese theory claims that long noodles are the key to living a long life and if you cut, bite or break your noodles before eating them, you’re actually slicing years off your life

  • Did you know that Heinz ketchup contains 1 teaspoon of sugar in each 1 tablespoon serving!
