It's Friday, which means it's Fun Food Facts day! Here's seven fascinating facts to help us prepare for the weekend...

How can you tell if a egg is raw or hard cooked? SPIN IT! If the egg spins easily, it is hard cooked but if it wobbles, it is raw.

You’ve heard of the dangers of eating the puffer fish, a delicacy in Japan; well Namibians have a taste for the African bullfrog, which can cause kidney failure unless it is cooked in special wood-lined pots to neutralise toxins in its flesh.

Grab a healthy snack, make it popcorn. Seriously, studies have found one serving contains more antioxidants than an equal serving of any other fruit or vegetables; and it’s the only snack in the world that’s 100% unprocessed wholegrain.

If you laid out all of the Toblerone chocolate bars that were sold each year - it would be 62,000 kilometers long. That's longer than the circumference of Earth.

Eating pasta will make you happier! It's true - the carbohydrates in pasta increase the body's production of serotonin, the neurotransmitter that scientists believe trigger feelings of happiness and well being.

Three Sip Rule - In Texas, USA, there’s a rule that says you can’t take more than three sips of beer while standing (nobody know why although it’s allowed seated).

Has anyone ever, in the history of spag bol, managed to cook just the right amount of spaghetti? Nope. Of course they haven’t. Because no one has any concept what one portion looks like. It turns out. The little hole in your spoon is approximately one serving size of pasta so no more pasta wastage! Tadaaarrrrr!
