Random Facts 05/30/2018

Today's Random Fact:
The most popular holidays for barbecuing are, in order, July 4th (71 percent), Memorial Day (57 percent), and Labor Day (55 percent).

Charcoal briquettes aren't actual charcoal, but a combination of charcoal and other ingredients molded into easy-to-light lumps.

Today's Random Fact:
There are approximately 60 nutrients which are placed in six major categories: proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and water.

Bonus Fact:

Peanut butter, for example, is allowed to have 30 insect fragments per 100 grams.
