Edible Empires

Did you know that lemon flavor doesn’t come from lemons? Or that a cactus is the home of a bug found in many of our favorite candies on purpose?? Be it sumptuous candies, rare spices, or mass produced junk food, our lives revolve around our favorite foods. In this night hike, we will track down the plants that help us create our favorite meals and learn their surprising histories!
