Did you know...?



Did you know that cranberries are sorted for ripeness by bouncing them? I didn't, but Snapple did!

Debate!!

Some feedback from the last post! Yes, I had heard that the Strawberry was not a fruit because the seeds are on the outside. Here is some technical info: The Straw Berry was named because children in the 19th century would pick them, put them on straws and would sell them as "straw Berries". True berries like blueberries and cranberries have the seeds inside, strawberries have the seeds on the outside and each seed is considered a berry. Does that help?

To Berry or not to Berry...


Another fun fact from Snapple. A strawberry is not an actual berry but a banana is? Hmmm, who knew!?
