This caught my eye...one of my favorite snacks, cheese puffs, happened by accident. And so were 19 other favs including brownies, sandwiches, chimichangas, and chewing gum. Here's the cheese puff story. Others HERE.
In the 1930s, Edward Wilson, who was working in a Wisconsin company, decided to taste the puffed mashed corn kernel from the partially cooked animal feed they produced. The he decided to add some seasoning to the puffs and realized they were actually pretty amazing. The rest is tasty history!
