Wah!! Fall from Perfection!

Thursday, October 10, 2013

Up until today, I was scoring an unprecedented 100% in Trivia.

Today, got one wrong. The USA is NOT the biggest importer of cocoa beans. It's the Netherlands.

OK then. This relates to nutrition and fitness how exactly?? And non-American Sparkies should have these facts about the US of A at their fingertips why exactly??

And grump grump grump grump grump, basically.

    (And your blog is the reason the quiz is called TRIVIA, LOL!)

BTW, I'm hovering at 89-90% this month, so getting to this date with 100% is phenomenal!!!

    You need to know this because, if the Netherlands is importing more cocoa that the US, it means that more of the cocoa is turned into Dutch-processed cocoa powder. And that has fewer antioxidants that non-Dutch-processed cocoa. So if you want to have healthy chocolate, you need to make sure it hasn't gone to the Netherlands first.

See, there's a reason this is important data!

    Is the streak for perfection or just showing up and answering Trivia questions? I'm sure if you wanted to spend forever researching you could still be batting a thousand... but why inflict all that extra chair time on your butt?

...Or you could just come back as a New Sparker.

    Sorry that great streak was blown :((
I have been doing poorly on trivia the last two months -I get those stupid 'number' questions that I always get wrong. Why is important to know what % of Americans are allergic dust mites?? 10 %
For whatever reason I actually did know that America wasn't the largest importer of cocoa beans, must have read an article recently.
To be getting so many questions right is fantastic!! You must have an incredible memory!
