I felt as if I was traveling up and down each aisle as I gained information about food products that I pick up at my local grocery store.I laughed and learned as I turned each page. I recommend this book to the food shoppers of the world and I look forward to reading to other books written by Vince Staten.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
6/22/08 Purchased with others as an add'l buy of author Vince Staten's books purchased as Xmas gifts, this one which I bought myself was even better than I expected..Staten's books on trivia which have catchy titles (e.g.:subtitle/title :In Search Of America's Great Barbershops : "Do Bald Men Get Half-Price Hair Cuts")contain many facts and admit when it is only "hear-say".... In "Can You Trust A Tomato In January?", it mentions facts like "a watermelon is a vegetable but is listed as a fruit at the market and a tomato is a fruit but is listed as a vegetable at the market". 6/22/08 abj

This book was fascinating! I also recommend twinkie deconstructed. This book will surprise you about what you don't know about your food.

Format: Paperback
"Can You Trust a Tomato in January?" is a must have in your arson of cookbooks, how to books or just keep a copy on your coffee table. Anyone that picks up this delightful read will thumb the pages and stop and read then giggle, then thumb the pages and giggle again! But beware that they "leave" the book and not try to walk off with it.

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!
