You probably think that you already know everything that there is to know about your favorite foods and beverages. However, we’ve gathered 50 food facts to share with you today that will blow your mind.
These thought-provoking pieces of trivia will have you questioning everything you know about food and the things that you put in your body. At least, that’s how we felt after going through them!
From crazy colorful varieties of corn to the secret filling in KitKat candy bars, this list is full of surprises. Which one of these fun food facts is the most surprising to you?
1. The filling in Kit Kats is made with crumbs from broken Kit Kat bars.
The bars that don’t make the cut get crushed up and placed in between the wafers. So in other words, Kit Kats are actually stuffed with more Kit Kats. No wonder they taste so good!
2. German chocolate cake isn’t actually from Germany.
The name was derived from a man named Sam German. In 1852, he created a chocolate company. His dark baking chocolate bar was used in the cake recipe.
3. Every year, 4% of the world’s cheese is stolen.
It’s the most frequently stolen food item in retail stores. Thieves always go for the cheese first. It means that around 1 in every 25 packs of cheese in the grocery aisle goes mysteriously missing.
4. Take 5 candy bars use Reese’s Peanut Butter as the filling.
Mixed in with the peanuts, chocolate, caramel, and pretzels of the Take 5 is a creamy Reese’s peanut butter. It makes sense. After all, they are both produced by The Hershey Company.
5. Fruit salad trees grow different fruits on the same tree.
They are a real thing, although, the fruits do all have to belong to the same family. For example, you can get a tree with six different types of Citrus fruits on it, or one with yellow, green, and red apples all on the same branch.
6. There are enough varieties of apples to eat a different one every day for twenty years.
There are around 7500 varieties of apples in total. Divide that number by 365 and you get 20.55 years. You can go for two full decades without ever eating the same variety of apple twice.
7. Red wine causes more drowsiness than other types of alcohol.
A study was done to see if different alcohols affected people’s emotions differently. Out of all of the choices, red wine made people the sleepiest. Spirits, white wine, and beer didn’t have the same effect.
8. Glass Gem corn has rainbow kernels that look like little beads of glass.
It seems like it could easily be fake, but corn with multi-colored kernels is actually a real thing. It’s called Glass Gem corn. The beautiful colors were created by mixing several Native American varieties of corn.
9. Food tastes different on airplanes because we lose our sense of taste.
Airplane food isn’t known for being incredibly delicious. Part of that may be because when flying at altitude in a pressurized cabin, our sense of taste and smell is drastically reduced. It can be as much as 30% less sensation for sweet and salty foods.
10. It isn’t necessary to wash chicken before cooking.
Many people think that you should always wash it first. However, professional germ experts say that washing the raw chicken may actually cause you more problems. It can spread the raw juice onto other kitchen items without actually removing the bacteria from the original piece of chicken.
11. McDonald’s used to cook their fries in beef fat.
The fries were cooked this way up until just a few decades ago. The company ultimately changed its recipe in 1990 in an attempt to make the dish healthier. It was a response to groups who were lobbying against fat and cholesterol in fast food products.
12. Diamonds can be made from peanut butter.
The high-carbon content of peanut butter makes it a great substance for use in laboratory-created diamonds. A scientist on a German TV station proved that it was possible a few years ago.
13. Asparagus grows on stalks in the dirt.
It doesn’t grow on vines or trees. Asparagus simply pops up right out of the ground. There are fields upon fields of this stuff out there.
14. The only difference between peaches and nectarines is the skin.
They are essentially the same genetically. However, there is one gene that causes the skin to be fuzzy in peaches and smooth in nectarines. It is either switched on or off.
15. Coconut water is a potential blood plasma alternative.
The water, not milk, from inside coconuts isn’t just for drinking and cooking anymore. In crisis situations, people have often used it as a replacement for blood plasma. There are numerous examples of it being injected intravenously throughout history.
16. Cranberries are harvested from marshes.
They don’t grow on trees like most people imagine. Instead, cranberries grow in vast marshes of knee-deep water. In order to pick them, you have to wade into the middle of it all.
17. Hawaiian pizza is from Canada.
Everyone loves the classic pineapple and ham Hawaiian-style pizza. What most people don’t know is that it has nothing to do with Hawaii at all. The topping combination first became popular at a pizza restaurant in Ontario in the 1960s.
18. It requires 1700 liters of water to make a 100-gram chocolate bar.
The cocoa beans take an incredible amount of water to grow. The most ideal cocoa growing locations are right around the equator of the earth. Your typical bar of chocolate needs 1700 liters to be produced in the end.
19. Mountain Dew is mostly orange juice.
It’s supposed to be lemon-lime, or something like that, right? That’s what many people suspect. However, upon closer inspection of the ingredients, you’ll see that the third ingredient listed is concentrated orange juice, right behind high fructose corn syrup, and carbonated water.
20. The name Spam is a combination of “spice” and “ham”.
It’s not just some random mystery meat. The primary ingredient of Spam is actually pork. The name was essentially meant to be a play on spiced ham.
21. Potatoes were once used to test Wifi signals on planes.
Because of their chemistry and water content, potatoes absorb the signals in much the same way that humans do. Boeing actually placed sacks of potatoes in their plane seats to test out their wireless system.
22. European chocolate is legally required to taste better.
At least, by most people’s standards. European law specifies that all chocolate must have a certain percentage of milk fat that is higher than what is required in the USA. It gives it that rich flavor that we love.
23. Most wasabi is horseradish with green food coloring.
It’s likely that you’ve never actually tasted authentic wasabi. The stuff that most sushi restaurants use in the United States is a mix of horseradish, mustard, and food dye. Even in Japan, real wasabi is rare to find.
24. Monk fruit extract is about 250 times sweeter than sugar.
If you are looking for a natural sweetener that really packs a punch, look no further than monk fruit. Compared to sucrose (common sugar), the difference isn’t even close. You’ll only need a small pinch of the monk fruit extract.
25. Potatoes contain an extremely high percentage of water.
80% of a potato is water and the other measly 20% are solids. It’s weird to think about because we consider a potato to be a very solid product. However, all of that weight is mainly due to the massive water content.
26. Pineapple plants can take two to three years to produce a fruit.
There is a long process involved before that pineapple is ready to be harvested. If you were to grow it from seed, a pineapple plant will take an entire year before it is even ready to begin forming a fruit.
27. Most 100% orange juice isn’t actually 100% natural.
The extraction process causes a lot of the natural flavors to be lost. The companies then have to mix artificial flavors in with the juice to compensate. Therefore, even it is 100% juice, it might still be very fake.
28. Butter doesn’t really need to be refrigerated.
As long as you are going to use it relatively soon, there is no real need to store it in the fridge. Butter can be left out for up to ten days without any risk, as long as your room temperature doesn’t get above 68 degrees.
29. Eating too much nutmeg can cause you to get high.
In large quantities, nutmeg can give you a buzz that lasts for multiple days. It contains an active compound called myristicin. However, due to it’s unpleasant side-effects, it’s not very popular.
30. Eskimos use refrigerators to keep their food cool.
The old saying goes “you can’t sell ice to an Eskimo”. However, it turns out, you kind of can. In some areas, it gets so cold that communities actually need refrigerators to keep their food warm and prevent it from getting “freezer burnt” sitting outside.
31. The word “cookies” originates from the Dutch word “koekje”.
The actual meaning of the word in Dutch is “little cake”. If you think about it, that’s all a cookie really is. It’s a small cake served up in a portion size that’s only a bite or two.
32. Cashews grow on the ends of cashew apples.
The apple portion of the cashew plant is edible and is used in some juices and recipes. However, the plant is really only famous for the nut that grows on the end. They are plucked from the apple portion, then dried and cracked.
33. Ketchup was sold in a pill form as diarrhea medicine in the 1800s.
Originally, tomatoes were not only considered delicious but also medicinal. Back then, ketchup was purported to cure all sorts of illnesses and ailments. The condiment has really come a long way over time.
34. They don’t have fortune cookies in China.
The little cookies with the fortunes in them are a completely American invention. They are only really seen in American Chinese restaurants. If you served them in China, people would be very confused.
35. Cilantro and coriander are the same thing.
If you’ve seen both names used in recipes before, we can understand your confusion. Cilantro is the American word for the spice. Whereas, the term coriander is used in the United Kingdom.
36. Garlic applied to the skin can cause chemical burns.
It smells very pungent when cooked. However, some of those same chemicals also cause it to be caustic to the skin. A couple of crushed garlic cloves left to sit on the skin can cause second and third-degree burns in extreme cases.
37. Parmesan cheese is essentially lactose-free.
Each serving of parmesan has less than one gram of lactose in it. For all intents and purposes, that is basically nothing. It is one of the most easily digestible cheeses.
38. There is more vitamin C in peppers than in oranges.
Oranges are the go-to choice when someone is lacking vitamin C. However, peppers are an even better source. A cup of chopped red bell pepper contains about three times as much vitamin C as one orange.
39. McDonald’s sells around 75 burgers per second.
On a global scale, the burgers are flying off the grill faster than we can count. There is a reason why McDonald’s has had so much success over the years. They specialize in speed.
40. Flamin’ Hot Cheetos were invented by a janitor.
Richard Montanez worked at the Frito-Lay plant at the time. One day, he had a big idea after experimenting with spices in his kitchen. The man is now a top marketing executive at Pepsi-Co.
41. Lemons float in water while limes sink.
It’s an interesting phenomenon that you can test out for yourself. Limes are slightly more dense than water whereas lemons are slightly less dense. The result is that one sinks and one floats.
42. Astronauts from NASA ate food grown in space in 2015.
They feasted on a small lettuce plant. It was the first ever type of food that was both grown and consumed in space. It was part of a vegetable growing experiment.
43. Drinking expired milk is often okay.
Many people will be just fine drinking milk that is a few days past the expiration date. While the flavor might be a little off, it shouldn’t be unsafe at that point. Any more than a few days though and it is best to toss it.
44. The singular word for spaghetti is spaghetto.
If you are referring to all of the pasta in the dish, it’s spaghetti. However, if you are only talking about a single noodle, it’s spaghetto. That’s just how the crazy Italians do things!
45. Water left out in a glass for a day is still safe.
We’ve heard people say that you shouldn’t leave a glass of water sit out overnight and then drink it. However, there is no scientific reason why you can’t. Water has no ingredients so it isn’t going to just randomly go bad that quick. It could potentially absorb some flavors from the air though.
46. In the USA, Haribo Green Gummy Bears are strawberry flavored.
In the United Kingdom and Germany, the green ones are apple flavored. We suppose that other places prefer different flavors, but still, a green strawberry? It just doesn’t make sense.
47. President John Adams drank a quarter pint of cider daily and lived to be 90.
It was his morning ritual. He would drink about four ounces of cider daily upon awakening. His practice seems to have caused him no ill health effects over the longterm.
48. The first bananas were mostly inedible.
They looked nothing like the bananas we are used to now. They used to be green and had very little edible fruit inside. We only got the modern banana through years and years of careful domestication.
49. All fruit and vegetables need to be washed before consuming them.
If they don’t specifically say that they’ve been pre-washed, you should give them a rinse. It’s important to get off any remaining dirt or pesticide residue. When consuming fresh produce, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
50. Any foods with “added fiber” have cellulose in them.
What did you think all of that “added fiber” was made of? Cellulose, or wood pulp as it’s otherwise known, is very common in cereals, shredded cheeses, and other similar products. Even though it sounds a little bit gross, it’s okay to eat in small amounts.

50 Photos Of The Funniest Quarantine Baking Fails
We all have different ways of dealing with perpetual boredom. One highly proactive way you can approach time in isolation is to pick up a new skill or hobby. A popular choice for people during this time is to pick up baking for the first time and expand their repertoire of kitchen skills.
The problem is…it’s not quite as easy as it seems. Enjoy, 50 slides of people’s quarantine baking fails. and DON’T get any ideas!
1) This bread got the chop!
Now it’s one thing to over-bake bread, but it’s another thing altogether to produce break that can withstand an axe chop. They should get hold of your recipe to make bullet-proof vests!
2) These rolls have got the distancing thing down!
Well it would seem like “overnight baking”, may not be the best way to get those soft tasty rolls you’re trying to bake, but if you want rock hard, pitch black golf balls instead, that’s how you do it! Similarly if you’re trying to demonstrate social distancing, that’s the way to go!
3) Well, she’s got the spirit, but she’s a bit confused
It’s all good and well using tray liners to bake your muffins. Problem is, you kind of need the try to line! Otherwise what do you get? Well, you get puffy muffin textured cookies…but at least they’re in liners!
4) That’s lights-out for a lighthouse!
5) Baking is not for everybody
Remember kids, if you’re baking for the first time, follow the instructions VERY carefully. Any number of things can go wrong for the unexperienced. Think of recipes as parachutes! Otherwise your scones, can become stones.
6) Is this how Oreos were invented?
Not sure if these are burnt to a crisp, or simply trying to fit in with the whole “activated charcoal” fad. something tells me however, it’s probably the former. Youch!
7) You can teach an old dog new tricks…
But can you teach an old bread maker to make new bread? No. You cannot, it would seem. You can try, but you may just end up with a pile of…whatever that is.
8) Mmmm, maybe baking isn’t for you…
I mean, look, if you want to bake scorched hockey pucks, I will not stand in your way. It’s hard to tell if these were originally made with oats, or if that’s just the texture you get when you roast cookies to within an inch of their life.
9) Well Tommy, you try it then!
You have to agree with him though, that is one pretty messy…whatever that is. But hey, fluffy sponge covered in sweet, sweet frosting. t may look messy, but looks like it still tastes pretty good!
10) Cookies can’t social distance
Once again, who dropped the ball on telling these cookies about social distancing! Common choc chips, flatten that curve! Instead these cookies are just a flat mess!
11) Well that should just be illegal
Some people love cilantro, some people hate it. Either way, this is a crime against taste buds. Even if you’re a devout fan of the common herb, there is no place for it in a chocolate chip cookie!
Now I don’t know a lot about banana bread, but I’m pretty sure it’s not supposed to be the same color and consistency as volcanic rock. I mean I have heard of lava cake, but I don’t think this is it.
13) When does it become just “one” cookie?
At what point does it stop being several cookies and just become one giant melded together cookie? And don’t get me wrong, there is nothing at all wrong with the idea of a giant cookie!
14) Looks like these cookies didn’t get the memo…
When cookies all meld together like this…do they technically just become one giant cookie? Either way, these cookies are officially breaching the social distancing instructions.
15) Banana bread or sinkhole?
As a fan of a nice fluffy, soft piece of banana bread this does hurt a little. Looks like this banana bread is little more sunken than I would otherwise like, but hey, banana bread is banana bread.
16) Mmm, tasty rocks…
They say the rolling stone gathers no moss, but when the roll is as hard as a stone, what then? It gathers no interest in someone eating it?
17) Now that’s being optimistic
As aforementioned, it’s best to take these little baking losses in your stride. Rather that just throw in the towel (along with the baking itself), you should walk away with a checklist of lessons learnt. Just like this guy did!
18) People are uniting over their blunders
In the eternal struggle of isolated citizens attempting banana bread, yet another casualty has inspired others. Under the hashtag, #Mysham, other bakers have been sharing their own baking mishaps.
19) Those poor bunnies…
It’s not just banana bread that’s getting a hared time right now, these poor baked bunnies aren’t exactly in great shape either. In fact, they actually seem a little miserable. In fact, if nobody told me those were bunnies I would think they’re some sort of ghost cookies.
What was supposed to be a braided chocolate circle (whatever that is…) ended up looking more like…well…I’ll let you decide what it looks like. It seems like this baker already has…
This was supposed to be a nice, neat, braided circle of chocolate, caramel, and banana filled chocolate yeast bread, but the strands all burst and it ended up looking like a pan of Sasquatch feces. Tasted ok, though 😀 pic.twitter.com/gRv9PmyUjn

21) And it goes further than banana bread
I know that you CAN make bread out of potatoes, but I’ve never seen a loaf of bread BECOME one! In fact this disasterous loaf seems to even be growing roots. Hey, maybe before long they’ll be able to grow a whole plantation of loaves.
22) Some even throw their S.O.’s under the bus
Sometimes the shame isn’t even theirs! This guy’s poor girlfriend spent her time, sweat and effort baking him an isolation birthday cake, but I guess it didn’t quite work out so well. Well, it may be good if those are strawberries…but there’s a small chance that they’re tomatoes.
23) Puts the “pan” in “pandora’s box”
Typically cinnamon buns are, y’know…separate. Also they don’t usually amalgamate into this giant, heaving mess of cinnamon chaos. But…it may still taste good?
24) Not even microwave baking is safe
We’ve all seen the ol’ cake-in-a-cup trick, but sometimes it can go pretty wrong. One of the classic blunders that is just too easy to make, is putting way to much of the magic powder in the cup.
25) They say that baking is like chemistry…
…but that may not strictly be true. This baker and science maker is not all that successful in the techniques required to bake this…I guess cake?
This is why I’m a scientist. In case you were wondering this cake doesn’t taste good either. Think I’ll keep supporting local bakers and find a new quarantine hobby to try. #bakingfail pic.twitter.com/v0EOkwfoq1

26) Great if you want to bake yourself a golf-ball holder..
If you’re trying to bake cupcakes however, this may not be the result you’re after. Plus, aren’t cupcakes usually in, like, cups? In fact, whatever this baking is, sort of became the cups.
27) This loaf was a bit of a reach
So desperate was this loaf to escape its fate, that it appears to even have been reaching for a way out. Stay strong, strange loaf, maybe one day you will be free of this world!
28) another…reaching attempt
Here’s another loaf of bread that seems to just be happy hanging out. Not sure what it is that this loaf expects to grab at, but hopefully the next time around this baker may have more success.
29) Cake news…
I mean… your kid knows what a cake is right? At least some of these turned out OK, not sure about those ones on the edge though. I guess at least some of them were worthy of icing.
30) Is there such a thing as a cake exorcist?
I mean, I’m not here to judge. But also, I am. To be honest, this cake looks like it still tastes pretty good, even if it looks a little ghastly. The good news is, a one year old probably won’t discriminate between a pretty cake and an ugly one so long as it is loaded with sugar.
31) Send those macarons back!
I guess as it turns out, homemade almond flour isn’t ideal for making these (usually) delectable treats. They’re usually soft, which a slightly crunchy outer. These however, seem to be hard, with a hard outer, not to mention charred to a cinder. I’m no macaron expert but I’m sure that’s not how it was meant to go.
32) It’scone badly
I’m pretty sure there’s supposed to be a difference between scones and cookies. And I’m pretty sure it’s not just that one of them can’t be mispronounced. I won’t even get started on the whole cookies vs biscuits debate…although if I were, I would point out that a biscuit is something that you dip in your tea…so it has been and so it shall always be. Wot wot!
33) How do you burn something without even burning it?
According to this tweeter, they somehow managed to create these black-as-night banana bread muffins, but without actually burning them. They point to the colour being caused by some other sort of drastic chemical reaction, which I do have to call BS on. I’m no baker and so I know a burnt muffin when I see one!
34) Somewhere over a horrendous mess
What delightful little cookies (biscuits) this person set out to bake. What they got however, seems like more of a surrealist painter’s nightmare, put on a baking tray and shoved into the oven at 350 degrees for five minutes too long.
35) Well I’ve heard of lava cake…
But I’ve never seen it actually molten! Did somebody try actually scooping lava from the earth’s mantle, then dust it with frosting just to throw it back in the oven for another hour? Not going to lie, a little curious about how it tastes…
36) This funny bunny
This ambitious baker set out to make an adorable bunny cookie. Instead, what they ended up with was some sort of grotesque, molten horror-rabbit. Just going to say though- still looks delicious.
37) Silly Rabbit
Well, they got the ears and eye-holes right, but the shape…not so much. Instead of cute little round bun-nies, they ended up with these messes which seem to have amalgamated somewhat, just to be broken into square rabbits.
38) Fail? OR prevail?
While this person didn’t quite get what they set out for, but by the sounds of it, it kind of worked out in the end! I’ve certainly never heard of using wild yeast from dried fruit to make bread, but hey, maybe I’ll try it for my failed baking attempt!
39) What is it with the bunnies?
I guess that following Easter, everybody was in a rabbit state of mind, but maybe they should have looked a bit closer at those recipes. To be fair, this rabbit actually just looks jacked! That’s a gym bunny for sure.
40) Oh the horror…
What fresh nightmare is this disastrous creation? What little bakery of horrors could produce such a hideous mess? I will say what I’ve been saying this whole time though- I bet that is still as sweet and chocolaty as if it were immaculate.
41) Pretzels have seen better days
The MUTANT pretzels went a little wrong when they went from being wonderful little bread knots to…whatever those folded lumps are. I can’t tell if those are salted, but, is this person eating them with Nutella? Is that normal? Am I missing something?
42) This terrifying cookie
It’s hard to feel good about your baking skills when your pug seems to be shaken to the very core by a mere cookie. Usually dogsa re all to ready to take any treat in front of them, but this pup is petrified.
43) This custard tart turned to…custard?
Either something went wrong with this recipe, or there is something evil in that oven because something is strange in this neighbourhood. Somehow the eggs in this custard have rebelled and spilled out into a separate omelette alongside. I guess there’s nothing wring with a bonus omelette.
44) Actually kind of cute
Y’know, I’m not even 100% sure that this is even technically a fail being rather cute in a way. I mean, that is a “face” in the loosest possible definition of the word, but still! How much is that doggy?
45)Well, at least this guy has the spirit!
The important thing is that when you mess up horrendously in the kitchen over this period, you learn from your mistakes and try again. Before that though, just follow the damn recipe!
46) Nothing better to do?
While this is certainly tame as far as these fails go, I’m sure it’s not quite up to scratch for this quarantine baker. I don’t know, I feel like with a hefty dollop of cream and cup o’ tea, this would be pretty delightful!
47) Not as it appears
It seems like this video is just like Vin Diesel. Hard on the outside, but soft and sweet on the inside. Unlike Vin Diesel however, this break is probably not ready, and probably wouldn’t be cast in The Chronicles of Riddick. Probably.
48) A flop of glop
Well it seems like many things went wrong with this, a perfect storm of missing ingredients, faulty equipment, and gloopy consistency. Better luck next time! Given that we’re all quarantined, that could be literally any time!
49) Upside down cake, upside down?
Well I’ve heard of upside down cake, but don’t you need to turn it upside down first. And if this isn’t upside down cake, then why does it…appear to be upside down?
Well, that’s also not how you spell focaccia, but I’m just going to let that one slide! You know what else is sliding? This sloppy, melty dough. Sorry, I meant “D’oh!”

Here are 50 kitchen catastrophes. They are hard-core and hard-to-believe, but so, so, funny. From kitchen explosions to missed attempts at baking masterpieces, these pics will make you chuckle—or straight out laugh.
I hope these photos will help us all laugh a little more at our own mistakes and not take things so seriously in the dinner department. A big thanks to all the cooks who shared and let us know that on our bad cooking days we aren’t alone, who gave us this opportunity to share the love with our friends and family!
1) The Zombie Roll Apocalypse, Coming To a Dinner Table Near You
I’m just going to come out and say it—are those rolls vomiting? What a scary thing to come home to, unless it’s Halloween. If that’s the case, then these spewing faces might be just what the kids ordered. Kudos to the cook who made them, this picture made my day with a good laugh. Thanks for sharing!
2) RIP, Cutting Board
On one hand, it’s nice to be left a note by your spouse or partner. On the other hand, now you have to replace a cutting board and an electric burner. At the end of the day though, it’s nice to know that you’re loved.
3) 1 Minute Wonder
I love sushi but don’t have the stomach (literally) to try making it. This though, I could handle!
“Sushi Chef Level: Beginner”
4) Watch Out—Exploding Chickens!
This could be an ad for Birds’n’Blocks. In the game, the birds are stuck and can’t fly because of their small wings. This is a true testament to the power of yeast…and of baking in small pans.
55 Copycat Recipes From Your Favorite Restaurants
It’s no secret that Americans love their fast food. In fact, we love all of our chain restaurants, whether they’re regional or national. Can you really blame us? We have some pretty kickin’ food. Just take McDonald’s, which has traveled across the world and garnered new fans in 101 different countries. It may not be good for you, but it sure is delicious.

The good news is that in the age of the internet, it’s not as hard to learn as you might think. There are entire blogs dedicated to crafting “copycat” recipes of our favorite restaurant meals, from fast food all the way to fine dining. Whether leaked recipes or just imitations, they’re the next best thing to the dishes we know and love.
So, if you have the fast food bug or trying to save some money, grab a whisk and look through these recipes from all your favorite restaurants.
