Theme: Bread

Item #1: The US Government banned presliced bread in 1943, but the ban lasted only several months due to widespread protest.[1]

Item #2: In the US some products sold as wheat bread are just white bread dyed brown with caramel coloring.[2]

Item #3: A “baker’s dozen” is 13, originally used as a marketing ploy, as 13 is prime and cannot be easily divided, encouraging purchase of the full “dozen.”[3]
