It's time for another round of 10 fun food facts of the day. I love these. Enjoy!!
The first soup was made of hippopotamus. The earliest archeological evidence for the consumption of soup dates back to 6000 BC and it was hippopotamus soup!
(Ummm...I wonder how that would taste like!!)
.007 calories are consumed while licking a stamp.
(Good thing I moved to using the sticker kind.)
Banana trees are not actually trees - they are giant herbs.
7-Up - invented in 1920 contained Lithium - the drug commonly prescribed now to sufferers of bi-polar disorder.
(Isn't that an ingredient for making batteries, too?)
The world's first chocolate candy was produced in 1828 by Dutch chocolate-maker Conrad J. Van Houten.
(I just had to add a chocolate fact to appease my craving.)
Coca-Cola was originally green.
In the 1950’s a McDonald’s hamburger, fries, and coke had about 600 calories. Today you can get a quarter-pounder, super-sized fries, and a 42 oz coke along with 1550 calories
(I wanted to comment, but I couldn't think of anything)
California's Frank Epperson invented the Popsicle in 1905 when he was 11-years-old

Large doses of coffee can be lethal. Ten grams, or 100 cups over 4 hours, can kill the average human.
The hamburger was invented in 1900 by Louis Lassen. He ground beef, broiled it, and served it between two pieces of toast
(Anyone heard of Louis Lunch in New Haven, CT. That's the place where it all began and it's still served the same way. Oh, if you go there...don't ever ask for ketchup in your burger. It's frowned upon. Seriously.)
