Did You Know. . .

that garlic bulbs were actually found in the tomb of King Tut?

that garlic was actually used as currency at one time?  It was used to purchase Egyptian slaves thousands of years ago, and it was also used to pay taxes during the 17th and 18th centuries in Siberia.  That's how valuable garlic was.

that during the olden days brides would carry bouquets of garlic and herbs instead of the traditional flowers we do today?   

that garlic also played a role in early works of art?  It was part of a blended mixture that was used to attach the gold leaf.

that a restaurant in Stockholm serves garlic cheesecake as well as garlic beer? 

that there is even garlic ice cream and garlic chocolate chip cookies?  (that doesn't sound appealing to me. . . does it to you?!)
