Wild rice? No--grass seed

Want to have some laffs with the kids or at the next cocktail party? Check out the Food Fact Machine from Natural

You can click on a button that says “Generate a new fact” and you get some weird trivia with comments and answers.

Yup—wild rice is really grass—not rice. Many bottled “teas” contain no tea. Some soy protein is made with explosive industrial chemicals.

There are also downloads—“25 Amazing Facts about Food” and “25 Amazing Facts about How Food is Made and Where it Comes From.”

Is it always good to know everything? Oh—you are such a philosopher!

As for those eggs--were the chickens eating blueberries? Nah--the egg color comes from the breed and they taste like any other egg.
