    It’s an old drink from the 70s or 80s, i think it may have been discontinued for awhile before and brought back. It’s not great from what i remember. Taste like weak bubblegum i think?

    Being the first diet drink was pretty much all it had going for it.
    (I mean, it had its own particular flavor/mix of artificial flavors, somewhere under the broad 'cola' umbrella, but not one that ever grabbed me.)
    Also, the original recipe was sweetened with saccharine. You know, the stuff that (1) became synonymous with "fake sweetness" and (2) turned out to cause cancer?

    til saccharine was an actual chemical and not just an archaic word that meant "overly sweet"

    It's made from coal and is 300 times sweeter than sucrose!

    Saccharin was produced first in 1879, by Constantin Fahlberg, a chemist working on coal tar derivatives in Ira Remsen's laboratory at Johns Hopkins University. Fahlberg noticed a sweet taste on his hand one evening, and connected this with the compound benzoic sulfimide on which he had been working that day.

    It's a solid way to live your life in 1879, experimenting with coal tar derivatives and cleaning your hands with big succulent luxuriant swipes of your tongue

    and today I learned that, oops, we found out it doesn't actually do that in humans (just rats) and it's legal again now!

    This is from the era where doctors would perform autopsies and then, without washing their hands, go deliver babies, so the fact that he cleaned his hands at all was a miracle.

    No, killing dinosaurs is how you get dinosaur ghosts.

    Licking fossils can just give you a nasty petrified bone splinter in your tongue.

    Tried one. It's pretty tasty, but quite dense. My cakes are always more like puddings. I'm not good at light, delicate cakes. Mary Berry would probably not approve.

    I like a chocolate mudcake so dense it has smaller cakes orbiting around it, so that all sounds fine to me!

    I assume you're using cake flour and not AP flour? There's a significant difference between the two when it comes to crumb density.
