  • Did you know...?

     img_1364_sharp_microwaveDid you know....chocolate is technically responsible for the microwave? Scientists were experimenting with micro waves in hopes of creating better radar detectors in the wake of World War II testing devices called magnetrons. A scientist named Percy Spencer entered the lab with a chocolate bar in his pocket realizing it quickly began to melt. Spencer then understood that the magnetron could potentially be used to cook food. He successfully tried popping corn then tried to cook an egg which cooked so quickly, it blew up in his face.
