    Fun Food Facts!

    Worcestershire Sauce: Is made from dissolved fish (Anchovy).

    Refried Beans: Only fried once. The name is a mistaken translation of frijoles refritos which means "well fried."

    Coca-Cola: Was originally green.

    Orange Juice: Naturally contains a small amount of alcohol.

    Strawberries: Have more vitamin C than oranges.
