And then there’s those figs where the crunchy grit you eat is actually the larvae of some beetle or moth. I think it’s only a certain kind of fig, but I avoid them all together….figs, dates, and I’m picky about raisins.
Funny story about honey- there was some nutritionist in the 80’s/early 90’s whose name escapes me, but he had some TV specials and he was kind of a funny guy. He was talking about people’s misconceptions about sugar and nutrition in general and he told this story about a woman he met who said she’d only use honey to sweeten things because it’s "natural". To which he retorted, "so is syphillis."
