Every day, F&W editor in chief Dana Cowin (@fwscout) posts fun food facts to Twitter using #dailywordwizard. Here, a roundup of the most recent bits of trivia she revealed.

1. Dana is happy as a clam & full of beans today. The icing on the cake? It’s #FoodClichéFriday!

2. Don’t drink like a fish—drink through a fish. Isinglass, which is used to clarify beer, is made from the dried swim bladders of fish.

3. The word “waffle” comes from Old High German “waba” (honeycomb) & Old English “wefan” (to weave).

4. Jamaican breadfruit doesn’t taste like bread or fruit. It tastes like potatoes!

5. Don’t be duped: drupes are fruits! The drupe family includes mangos, apricots, cherries, olives. Essentially, it’s any fruit with flesh around a stone.
