1) The Waring Blender was used by Dr. Jonas Salk in his laboratory while he was working on the Salk Polio Vaccine.

2) ‘Ugli fruit’ is a trademark name for this fruit that originated in Jamaica, most likely as a natural hybrid. It supposedly originated near Brown’s Town in 1914, and was cultivated by F. G. Sharp at Trout Hall, and marketed by his son in the early 1930s.

3) The Toll House Cookie, otherwise known as the chocolate chip cookie. Ruth cooked for her guests, and one day had to substitute semi-sweet chocolate for baker's chocolate in a cookie recipe. She chopped the chocolate in bits, but when she took the cookies from the oven, the semi-sweet chocolate had not melted into the dough as the baker's chocolate had. These cookies with chocolate 'chips' became an immediate hit with her guests.
