A few weeks ago when I was writing a historical novel, I found a website that was extremely helpful in providing details about food history.
The Food Timeline offers details on everything from the history of ice right on up to Kool Aid pickles. (Yeah, I never heard of them either).
You can find out what year chewing gum arrived on the scene, when the first deviled eggs made an appearance and when Texas sheet cake became popular.
I found so many helpful tidbits of info here, but also learned a lot about food in general.
If you’ve ever wondered when or how some particular food item, came to be, check out The Food Timeline.
