  • The word ‘Avocado’ comes from an Aztec word that also means testicle
  • Napoleon set aside 70,000 acres to explore beet root’s sugar-producing potential. In an era of sugar shortages due to wartime blockades, France was then able to produce its own sugar. Since then, beets of varying varieties have been used as a global source of sweetener
  • Some of the asteroids seen in the Star Wars film The Empire Strikes Back are actually potatoes. You can see them in the Millennium Falcon chase scene
  • How you serve food and drink matters in the perception of taste. Hot chocolate tastes better in orange cups, scientists have found
  • In the last 5 years, the bee population has dropped by a third – if they were to disappear off the face of the earth, humans would have just 4 years left to live! A simple sugar solution made from 2 tbsp of white granulated sugar and 1 tbsp of water will help save a tired bee. Place it on a spoon for an exhausted bee to reach and it will help revive it
