Make the most of the kids being off school and teach them a thing or two with our Fun Friday Food Facts... they might even come up with some good ones themselves!
  • When Usain Bolt broke the world record for the 100m at the Beijing Olympics, he was training on a McDonald’s diet of 100 chicken nuggets a day plus side orders of fries and apple pies because he didn’t like Chinese food. That’s 5,500 calories or about double the daily requirement
  • More air than crisp: crisp packets are only partially filled for a reason - the additional space adds cushioning to prevent breakage. The bags are also pumped full of nitrogen, which helps keeps the product fresher before opening
  • Peppercorns feature in the world's oldest surviving cookbook. "Sprinkle with pepper and serve" is the last step in the book ‘De Re Coquinaria’ (‘On Cookery’ in English) which is attributed to the 1st century Roman gastronome Apicius
  • The Dubai duty-free is the largest seller of Kit Kat worldwide - approximately one tonne of the chocolate bar is sold at Dubai Airport nearly every day!
