It’s FINALLY here…the world premier of the movie The Hunger Games, the first book of The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins! Eeeek, so exciting!!! The Hunger Games is our number one, most popular book in the library right now so if you have not read the series yet swing by and pick up a copy…you will not be disappointed!
If you are a true Hunger Games fan you totally need to get a Hunger Name! Ours were Hyssop Scrabbledeen (aka Ms Fleck) who perished in a forest fire that she could have prevented and Tansy Nibblehatch (aka Mrs Campbell) who died from eating berries she should have known not to eat…our fates could have been worse I think (at least we were not devoured by a horrible wolf mutation!)
Get your Hunger Name and fate HERE and may the odds be ever in your favor!!!
Greasy, crunchy, deliciousness…Happy National Potato Chip Day!!!
1. Potato Chips date back to 1853. An unhappy customer at a restaurant in Saratoga Springs, NY kept returning his fried potatoes to the chef, requesting they be prepared much thinner. The chef sliced them so thin that they could not be eaten with a fork. Thus was born the potato chip.
2. As junk food goes, potato chips contain only 3 ingredients (potatoes, oil, salt)
3. Potato chips sales are over $15B a year worldwide. They tally up about one third of all savory snacks!
4. One of the most popular flavored potato chip varieties is Sour Cream and Onion. Compared to just 3 ingredients in the original version, this one has 20 ingredients including MSG, Palm oil, and artificial coloring’s (EWWWWWW!)
