These are from Gourmet magazine:
The world’s longest apple peel was created by Kathy Wafler Madison on October 16, 1976 in Rochester, NY. It was 172 feet 4 inches long. (Don’t ask me how big the apple was!)
More than 35 million pounds of candy corn are produced in a year which adds up to nearly nine billion pieces-enough to circle the moon nearly four times if laid end to end. (Enough to fill dentists’ offices from here to the moon four times over.)
There are more than 5000 active personal chefs in the United States, a figure that’s expected to double by the end of the decade. (And I would be happy if one person in my family prepared one meal a week!)
One in three children in the U.S. recognizes brandname foods by age three. (Can anyone say television as babysitter?)
Maybe I will add a few more later.
Hope everyone has a fantabulous week. gail
