Jam Tarts are delicious, and yet a sinister truth lurks beneath their jammy goodness. In 1927, Rudyard Kipling was on the verge of discovering the secret of mass-produced baked goods, the holy grail of baking.
He decided that for his scheme he would choose the simple and yet tasty jam tart. 3 years later after tampering with various plastics, he invented the jammy dodger, a biscuit/jam hybrid with none of the satisfaction of either.
History was made, and jam tarts were consigned to the jam tart bin. And the sinister thing is, during the 3 years, 11 people died in that factory of jam related causes.
