Did You Know That...?

The full word is "oleomargerine", but, on packaging, you'll almost always see it shortened to, simply, "margerine". The only time you'll ever see it refered to as "oleo" is in crossword puzzles.

My mother remembers when, during the 2nd world war, the dairy council was able to keep them from being allowed to put yellow coloring in the margarine. It fell to the children usually to kneed the oleomargarine and its packet of food coloring together.
