Each year, the Internet is flooded with new and exciting findings that are hypnotizing people all over the world. We could spend hours going through these studies and coming up with our favorite hypnotizing findings of 2017. But we don’t have to! In this post, we’ll share 11 of our most hypnotized favorites from this year’s crop of mesmerizing research.
List the hypnotizing findings, one per sentence.
Hypnotized favorite #11: Researchers at MIT have developed a simulation that simulates eating an ice cream cone. The program can be used to study people with Parkinson’s disease who are unable to move their limbs due to tremors or other symptoms of Parkinson’s and want exercise but cannot do it themselves.
Hypnotized favorite #12: A new study by researchers from the University of Glasgow found that our brain recognizes patterns in music more quickly when we’re tired than when we’re well rested—hypnosis is awesome! Hypnotized favorite #13: People are less likely to overeat if they first drink water rather than an alcoholic beverage, according to a study published in the journal Obesity.
Hypnotized favorite #14: It’s not just what you eat but when and how much as well, that is important for your health; this has been shown by research on obese mice who were fed either three or six small meals per day rather than one larger meal. Hypnotized favorite #15: Rice Krispies cereal was first sold in 1937 under the name “Krispy Kreme,” which began with an ‘e’ before they dropped it from their branding after World War II because of anti-German sentiment at the time.
The recipe for Rice Krispies includes rice flour, crushed corn flakes and salt – there are no nuts!
Hypnotized favorite #16: The earliest known recipe for Rice Krispies cereal was published in a cookbook called “New and Improved Cook Book” by Maria Parloa, who was the head chef at Wellesley College. Hypnotized favorite #17: There are many different types of gingerbread recipes, but my favorites also include nuts like pecans or walnuts that give it some crunch!
The original Gingerbread Man is believed to have been created in 17th century France where he had a gingernut-like appearance. Norwegian immigrants brought this tradition with them when they arrived on our shores in the 1800s. They were made out of rye dough so as not to waste precious wheat flour during hard times.
The Gingerbread Man is considered a symbol of the winter solstice in both Northern and Southern Europe because he appears just before Christmas, when the days are shortest, to show that soon there will be longer days and celebrations!
Hypnotized favorite #18: I like my Carrot Cake without frosting so you can really taste the pure flavor experience of this beautiful treat! The natural sweetness from carrots complements spices such as cinnamon with nutmeg for an amazing burst of flavors in your mouth. Hypnotized favorite #19: My final hypnotized favorites would have to be Orange Creamsickle ice cream. It tastes like oranges but not too sweet where it’s more tart than anything else, which also makes it refreshing Hypnotized favorite #20
Hypnotized favorite #21: This is a unique and exotic frozen dessert with tiny specks of black pepper in the mix giving this dish an unexpected twist on your typical orange flavored concoction!
Sidered a symbol of the winter solstice in both Northern and Southern Europe because he appears just before Christmas, when the days are shortest, to show that soon there will be longer days and celebrations! HypnoFavorite 18: I like my Carrot Cake without frosting so you can really taste the pure, moist carrot cake.
Hypnotized favorite #19: This is a perfect example of some of the most hypnotizing desserts out there, too! Everyone has that one person they know who can eat an entire pumpkin pie in under 15 minutes and never gain any weight. That’s impressive for sure but these apple fritters are even better because you get all those sweet apples mixed with delicious fried dough and it sounds like heaven when I describe them to you!
This list would not be complete without mentioning my absolute favorite ice cream flavor ever invented which is black raspberry chip (sometimes called magenta) ice cream. If this doesn’t make your mouth water just reading about it then I’m sorry-you’re probably dead inside.
