Twinkie TriviaWritten by Shauna Hanus
Did you know that Twinkies were introduced during Depression in Chicago. This little yellow snack cake filled with a mere 160 calories and delicious vanilla cream is enjoyed around world. Chicago is still number one Twinkie eating city in United States, but you can enjoy them anywhere. When they first were introduced Twinkies were filled with Banana Cream. This changed during World War II when United States suffered a banana shortage. Hostess did start to offer banana cream filled Twinkies as a special promotion a few years ago. My personal experience was they are hard to find. When I wrote to Hostess they sent me a few coupons and their apologies. I did get pleasure a year latter when illusive banana cream filled Twinkie showed back up on my grocers shelves.
Cool CoffeeWritten by Shauna Hanus
Ever wonder how coffee came to be. The story as I have heard it goes; a shepard was out one day tending his flock when sheep began eating a new berry. The sheep quickly began to act strange and almost seemed hyperactive. The shepard being a bit weary himself thought he would try berry and see what happened. He a short time latter found himself to be alert and energetic. The word about this mysterious berry got out to local monks who after some careful study discovered coffee.
Have you ever wondered if keeping you awake is only thing coffee can do? Asthma sufferers may find that theophylline in coffee may reduce their symptoms. Theophylline is know to be a bronchodilator. Coffee may also help reduce risk of colon cancer by keeping a body regular.
