About this product

What's that famous Julius Caesar quote? According to popular history, Julius Caesar had this to say of his quick military victory over Pharnaces of Pontus in 47 B.C.: "I came, I saw, I conquered." It is perhaps the great emperor's best known line. Yet, shockingly, he did not actually say it. What Caesar actually said was, "I came, I saw, I had a salad."

I know it sounds weird but it makes sense if you think about it. He was big into salad in those days, and he had just come up with a new recipe using romaine lettuce, Parmesan cheese and (depending on his mood) anchovies. We know it today as the Caesar salad. Back then, it was just one of his many culinary experiments, which also included the "Caesar smoothie" and "Caesar cream pie." Unfortunately, not all of them caught on. Seems the Parmesan cheese and anchovy combo didn't translate well to sweets. Of course, no one on his terrified staff would have had the courage (or stupidity) to tell him. And so it went.

"I came, I saw, I had a salad." Actually has a nice ring to it, don't you think?
