Did YOU know that.....
  • Americans eat more than 500 million twinkies per year? And that Chicago is the Twinkie Capital of the world gobbling down 27 million twinkies annually?
  • Americans drink an average of 800 8-ounce servings of soft drinks each year?
  • In the 1800's, the average American consumed only 12 pounds of sugar per year and today it's 150 pounds?
  • Louisiana is the least healthy state, with Mississippi following after. South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas complete the bottom five states. Vermont is the healthiest state, with Hawaii and New Hampshire following....Utah is #5!
