A Bit of Food History

I haven't come across many people who don't love the snack food, cheese curls. They're light, crunchy, and strangely addictive. But, there's the added benefit of orange-dyed lips and fingers to let you know when you've eaten a few too many! They are definitely not on a "clean eater's" diet!


You may have asked yourself, "Who invented these things?" It's not exactly the result of a normal cooking or baking accident. Wonder no more--the answer is found here, and it's not particularly appetizing!

That verse from the Bible, "The truth shall set you free," definitely applies here. After reading the story of cheese curls, you may be free from future cheese curl cravings!
