Did you know if you..............

Read the Girl Scout Handbook from 1927 and you will find the recipe for S'mores!  We use to
believe the term - S'mores meant "some more, please", but no one really knows for sure.

But , they weren't called smores then, but it was the first recorded recipe combining toasted
marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers.

Did you know if you....................
Studied the life of Thomas Alva Edison, you would discover when Tom was 12 years old, he
worked on the Grand Trunk Railroad as a "candy butcher"!  Thomas Edison sold newspapers,
fruit, books, and candy!  I wonder what a candy butcher was paid.....hum.........and why did
they refer to it as a "butcher"?

Did you know if you.........................
Read newspapers published in the late 1800's, a company, called Ganja Wallah Hasheesh Candy
Company, advertised candy made by combining Maple Sugar and Hashish!

This well established company legally sold Candy Hashish Concoctions for at least 40 years.
Sold over the counter at pharmacies, it was advertised in many newspapers as sweeties

Wallah sold this product for 40 years. It was sold out in the open.  It was purchased by many
consumers, in public, with no fear of the government.............(probably because their
grandparents remembered a little tea party held in Boston and the government stayed out of
peoples business and people weren't so politically correct and neighbors weren't stickin their
freakin noses over freakin privacy fences, in your own backyard, with that whinny screachin
voice of hers asking,.........."What's that funny looking flower growing there???"  So you run
them off with a hoe and ................ahahah.....umhump.....excuse me.............sorry,

Anyway.........what was I saying?..........I can't seem to recall where I was...........O, well.....

About the hashish candy.......Do you know what this means???

This, my friends, means that the United States of America has a history of sweet eating people
who adore Maple Sugar Candies!

See, the candy........................ is love.  Hurray for the candy~

Did you know.............You can still buy Coca-Cola in a real glass bottle,
made with pure cane sugar in Mexico?  Makes me wonder why
Coca-Cola won't allow us such a luxury?  I am serious!

They sell the real Coke, Coke the way it use to be in the good ole days. Made with real cane
sugar, in a real glass bottle.   

I have to scream - WHAT'S UP WITH THAT COCA-COLA???!!!
ALL YOU ARE GIVING US IS CORN SYRUP IN A CAN!  I love my Coca Cola.......can't I
have sugar too?

Mumble, mumble......"A government conspiracy, no doubt, to keep me away from the  sugar, I
love so dear,  and force me to loose weight, but whose government?"

Tomatoes first originated in Central America!  Mexican's were the first to
use tomatoes in their delicious dishes.  Italians didn't start using tomatoes
until the middle of the 1500's.  

Tomatoes were slow to catch on, however, as most people in Europe were
convinced tomatoes were evil and an aphrodisiac.  Many people thought
you could die from eating one.
