Can You Trust a Tomato in January? Paperback – July 6, 1994
From the Back Cover
Join author Vince Staten on his humorous and revealing journey through the secret life of our favorite supermarket items, as he uncovers the hidden histories and fascinating folklore behind the foods we take for granted. The results are truly amazing and reveal the answers to such questions as: Which has more lemon in it, Lemon Pledge or Country Time Lemonade? What is Spam-- and why is it so darn popular? What happened to the vanilla in Nabisco Nilla Wafers? Who thought of putting American cheese in an aerosol can, and is it really cheese, anyway?

My first copy I found in a half off book store years ago and it spouted legs. The second book I bought at a book store feeling withdrawal pains of not having my book. Then after the second copy sprouted legs, I bought several copies and gave them away as gifts - ha - I hid a copy in my closet and now I have my own copy AGAIN!
Vince Staten is a wizard with words weaving in historical tidbits about food, fruit and just about anything. You will marvel at his ability to take simple information and make a hit out of it and soemthing that you will remember.
Makes a great gift!
