There's A First For Everything

Food and drink are such an integral aspect of every day life, that it's easy to take it all for granted and never think about the creation of it. So for a quick culinary history lesson, here are a few food related firsts that occurred on today's date, June 25:

  • The fork turns 377 years old. In 1630, the governor of a colony in Massachusetts introduced the fork to fine American dining.
  • In 1938 a new Federal law was put into action promising workers across the nation a minimum wage of 40 cents per hour.
  • Just 13 short years later, in 1951, the first color beer commercial aired on TV. What brand of beer was it? None other than Pabst Blue Ribbon.
  • Finally in 1974, the first functioning checkout scanner was installed in the supermarket.
