Thanks Julie Fritz for helping us with these fun facts to round out our month of nutrition.
Ever wonder where your favorite snack got its name? Curb your appetite with the trivia below.
*Did you know there is no real Betty? Betty Crocker got its name because Betty was seen as an All-American name. The last name was given from a company director.
*What drink was first introduced as a “snappy apple” carbonated beverage? Snapple, of course!
*What is Canadian, oil and low in acid? Squish these words together and you get canola oil. The term was successfully created to combat the ugly name rapeseed, which is really where the slick substance derives.
*Could’ve had a V-8? You bet! This combination of tomato concentrate, water and eight vegetables makes up the original cocktail base. Beets, celery, lettuce, carrots, parsley, watercress, spinach and tomato- I know you were wondering!
*Raise your milk glass to that Milano cookie. Pepperidge Farms is the namesake of family property and the Pepperidge trees planted there.
Now you can enlighten your coworkers while standing around the water cooler! Here’s a toast to invisible Betty and her delicious baked goods! Too bad those unwanted lbs aren’t invisible, too!
