Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which ingredients are used to make candy floss, cotton candy or fairy floss?

Answer: Sugar and colouring

This sugared street food is a popular favourite around the world and called a variety of different names, all depending on where you live. Candy floss in the UK, cotton candy in the USA, and fairy floss in Australia. It is normally pink, but other colours can be used such as blue or green.

It is simply made by adding a cup of sugar, and some colouring, to a special rotating machine. The centrifugal forces cause light fluffy strands of sugar to form, and these are collected on a wooden stick for consumption.
2. Which company created in 1974 sells slushy iced drinks which include blue raspberry, cherry and sour apple flavours?

Answer: Slush Puppie

Slush Puppie was created in 1974 by Will Rafcliffe, his mother and sister, all from Cincinnati, Ohio. The family run business initially traded to the local area and has since built an international reputation. The cold drink contains iced slush with a sweet fruit flavoured syrup, normally served in plastic cups with a wider than average straw to slurp through. Popular flavours have also included kiwi strawberry and pina colada! On average, the Slush Puppie Classic includes 9g of sugar in a 100ml serving, although there are newer sugar-free versions.
3. Berliner, beignet and beaver tails are all pastries made by using which cooking method?

Answer: Deep frying

Berliner (Germany), beignet (France) and beaver tails (Canada), are all types of deep fried doughnuts, sold worldwide in shops or outside kiosks. A special batter is made with flour, sugar, eggs, yeast and milk, which is then dropped into hot oil to gently fry until golden brown on the outside.

The warm pastry is usually served with a dusting of sugar, or more elaborate fillings or coatings are made using jam, chocolate or custard.
4. Which caramel coated popcorn was the first of its kind and came into production in 1896?

Answer: Cracker Jack

Popcorn has been around for thousands of years, but it was during the late 19th century which saw the introduction of mobile popcorn making machines seen on street corners. Cracker Jack was the name of a caramel coated popcorn which was first manufactured in 1896 by the Rueckheim brothers in Chicago. Butterkist was first sold in 1914, followed in 1966 by Crunch 'n Munch, and lastly Orville Redenbacher in 1970.
5. As people become more conscious of their sugar intake, street vendors are making available more varieties of fresh fruit. Which of these is NOT contained in fruit?

Answer: Maltose

Maltose is a natural crystalline sugar obtained from malt and is used during the fermentation process in brewing beer. Fructose is the sweetest of all sugars and is known as the fruit sugar. When combined with glucose, it creates sucrose. The sweetness of fructose in fruit can be beneficial as part of a healthy controlled diet. Too much fructose is not beneficial as the liver is unable to process large quantities and turns any excess into fat.

The image shown is that of malted barley.
6. Starbucks sell a hot sweet drink called caramel macchiato, which includes a vanilla syrup and a dash of espresso coffee. What does the word 'macchiato' mean?

Answer: Marked

Starbucks coffee has been popular since the company started trading in 1971. The Italian word 'macchiato' means marked. Caramel macchiato is a milky hot drink, marked with a dash of espresso coffee, with some sweet vanilla syrup, and topped with caramel. An espresso macchiato is traditionally served with a shot of espresso coffee and a dash of milk.
7. What would you get if you asked for Gaufres de Bruxelles?

Answer: Belgian waffles

Gaufres de Bruxelles is synonymous with Belgian cuisine and can often be ordered from street vendors. They are traditionally made with flour, sugar, eggs, milk and yeast. The batter is poured in to a waffle iron which creates the distinctive honeycomb shape on the cooked product. The waffles can be eaten with a sprinkling of sugar, or with cream, fruit and/or chocolate.
8. I am walking along a British seafront, eating a wafer cone with soft ice cream and a chocolate flake sticking out of the top. What am I describing?

Answer: 99

The history of the 99 ice cream cone is a mystery as nobody seems to know why it was named the way it was. The wafer cone is jam packed with soft ice cream and it only becomes a 99 when a Cadbury's chocolate flake is inserted. The majority of British people love going to the seaside for a walk along the promenade, followed by fish and chips served out of paper, and finished off with a 99 cone.
9. Certain savory foods surprisingly have a large quantity of sugar. Approximately how much sugar would you find in a McDonald's 7oz Quarter Pounder with cheese?

Answer: Two and a half teaspoons

There are approximately two and a half teaspoons of sugar in a 7oz serving of a McDonald's Quarter Pounder with cheese. Each serving size is 199g which includes 10g of sugar. One teaspoon of sugar equals four grams. The Quarter Pounder has a sesame seed bun with one beef patty, sliced cheese, onions and pickles.
10. A lot of manufactures have become more health conscious because of the bad press relating to the amount of sugar in food and drink. Coca-Cola Life is a carbonated soft drink which contains nearly half the amount of sugar than a classic Coca-Cola. It also includes which natural product?

Answer: Stevia

Stevia is a natural sweetener extracted from the leaves of Stevia rebaudiana, a plant native to South America, but since cultivated in bulk for human consumption elsewhere. Coca-Cola Life was first introduced in Argentina 2013, before becoming available in the UK, US and parts of Europe. The labeling used is a distinctive green colour. The classic Coca Cola drink contains 42 calories per 100ml, whereas Coca Cola Life only contains 27 calories per 100ml. Coca Cola Zero and Diet Coke have the lowest sugar content with less than 1 calorie per 100ml.
