“7. Beavers have an anal sac that produces castoreum, which has been used in popular food and beverages as a substitute for vanilla flavoring.” Who was the first person to figure out that beaver ass tastes like vanilla?!

Cochineal or Carmine, (E120 or just 120) is the bug dye. It’s not made directly from the beetles as such, but a bacteria from the Cochineal beetle. Their exoskeletons are processed with various chemicals and the resulting solution is treated and filtered until it creates a red dye.

@JCLV no doubt some kid that misinterpreted the idea of going down on a beaver.

I don’t know about you guys but beaver booty sounds delicious now. Might Remind me of my coffee creamer!
