- What is the one vegetable that is always sold as is and is never sold sliced, diced, minced, cubed, pressed, cooked, sautéed, pureed, etc.?

Someone said berries but that is a category of fruit, not a specific fruit itself.
- The spirit called pear brandy is usually sold in a bottle that contains a pear in it. The pear adds to the flavor of the drink. How do they get the pear in the brandy bottle?

I’ve only found MaDonalds (imitation) in northern
Someone else thought I was joking, so here is an article talking about the Big Mac Index and burgernomics.
I will leave it up to you to find the Golden Arches Theory.
Hello, this is Victor. Good to hear from you and see you. It seems that the quiz last time drew much interest. I hope the answers helped. Usually when it involved a fruit or a vegetable there were more answers than my questions suggested due to the biodiversity of fruits and vegetables around the world.
