Staggering Statistic: Pizza Hut's Surprising Spend on Kale

    I had never heard of kale until I worked at a Pizza Hut back in the early 1980s. Kale was used to cover the ice on the salad bar as a decoration. I thought it was fake and made of plastic at first because it was sooooo stiff. I practically live on it now. WellnessMealsWater.com
