The story of chocolate, as far back as we know it, begins with the discovery of America. Until 1492, the Old World knew nothing at all about the delicious and stimulating flavor that was to become the favorite of millions.

The Court of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella got its first look at the principal ingredient of chocolate when Columbus returned in triumph from America and laid before the Spanish throne a treasure trove of many strange and wonderful things. Click here

Tupperware and Rubbermade Thank you

There are many reasons we in the United States are so fortunate not to have the horrible diseases they do in other countries, especially in Asia and Africa. We have modern sewer systems, fresh water, refrigeration and good health care. But we should also consider some of our habits as Americans and some of the companies, which have bought us products, which help us keep our food fresh.

Tupperware is one of the reasons we as Americans are so healthy, since its inception, it has brought quality products to market to seal in freshness, prevent bacteria growth and allow people to save portions for a later date without risking contamination. Rubbermade another company, which emulated the Tupperware type products has also helped immensely by using its mass marketing abilities in major retail outlets.Some would say, yes, this is all true; so what is the point? The point is we all to often forget those things that are right in front of us.

Go to your refrigerator right now and your cupboard and look at all the Tupperware type products? You see and these same types of products are in the households of 300 million Americans protecting our food supplies.In some countries the mortality rates are five deaths for every child who reaches 8 years old. In the United States we have fresh water, sewer systems, refrigeration, protection of food supplies with laws and thank god we have Tupperware type products. Think on this.
