The World’s Fair Is Where America Learned To Love The Banana (Cool Weird Awesome 314)

June 5th, 2020|

It was on this day in 1876 that the U.S. first fell in love with the banana, when it was introduced at the World's Fair in Philadelphia. Though, back then, eating a banana was quite a bit different than it is today. Plus: on National Doughnut Day, we mark the moment in 2012 when festival-goers in Ukraine proved doughnuts were as good for art as they were for snack time.

Three minutes each weekday of cool facts, weird news and awesome discoveries.
