BREAKING PIZZA NEWS: What You Need To Know Before Having Your Next, Delicious Slice.

Published

on

A new study is out that determines whether blotting a piece of pizza with a napkin to absorb the grease really amounts to anything. It does, much more than you probably imagine. My enthusiasm about this story is in part because I’ve been on an all-fresh/raw juice diet all day and this is suddenly the only thing I can think about. But let’s get to the meat of the story. Ah…. pepperoni… Okay, I’m focused again… here goes:

A website called Labdoor (which I now will be reading regularly) brilliantly decided to see if it made any difference, and put together an infographic with the results. I’m posting PART of it here… but really to be fair, go visit the article in its entirety.

Pizza Infographic

Researchers used slices from a 14-inch Domino’s pepperoni pizza. Before dabbing, the slice was 117 calories. But after dabbing, it was 76.5 – cutting 40 calories and four and a half grams of fat. Pepperoni is a big grease producer, by the way… you’ve seen that swimming pool of grease collect when the edges of the pepperoni curls up – or in cases where the pepperoni stays flat – it just swims across the entire slice. I’m dying for pizza right now.

Americans eat about 23 pounds of pizza every year, amounting to about 87 slices! But if you blot, you’re shaving off enough calories that it’s as if you’re 66 slices per year.

Twitter User Figures Out Why Triscuits Are Called “Triscuits” And Minds Everywhere Are Blown

Published

on

Sometimes the internet answers a question you never even knew you had.

Nabisco invented Triscuits in 1900. They were granted a patent in 1902. Nabisco began producing Triscuits for mass consumption in 1903. Each wafer currently measures 1-3/4 inches square. There are currently dozens of different flavors of the popular wheat snack. While all of this information will make for perfect ice-breaker fun facts at your next dinner party, it doesn’t really provide information on why Trsicuits are called “Triscuits,” which truthfully I have never even thought about before. Until today that is.

Twitter user @SageBoggs asked a question that has shaken the social media platform to its very core. He asked “What does the word ‘Triscuit’ mean?” If you’re like me you probably read that and thought “well everyone knows it has something to do with a biscuit” and while that is correct, Alex Trebek would have you escorted off of  Jeopardy for an answer so incomplete. Luckily for us, @SageBoggs continues his Twitter thread providing a ton of snack facts but not before warning us to “buckle up.” And it definitely is a wild ride.

Originally, @SageBoggs thought the “Tri” in “Triscuits” could stand for three layers or three ingredients but when he asked Nabisco themselves he got a response saying that was incorrect. In that same official response, Nabisco said none of the records from the date of invention survived so they weren’t 100% sure about the origin of the name either. WHAT?!? First mind explosion right there. After some more digging, @SageBoggs discovers one of the earliest ads for “Triscuits” features the slogan “baked by electricity,” which was a unique method of baking at the time. And then it hit him, the “Tri” in “Triscuits” comes from “elec-TRI-city.” They’re “electricity biscuits!” Mind blown all over again! Obviously Twitter erupted with comments, many of which express gratitude for answering a burning question we never knew we needed answer.

Take a look at the educational thread below!
