A tale of sushi!

Sushi is fast taking over everyone’s hearts worldwide. However, even though we tend to tell our friends things like “I’ve loved sushi forever”, sushi has only become so popular over the last couple of years. Have you ever wondered how long sushi has actually been around?

The answer: since 3500 BC. That’s right, sushi has been a part of people’s lives since way before electricity was invented. And, here’s another fun fact: sushi in its ancient form didn’t originate in Japan as most people firmly believe, but in Thailand, near the Mekong River.
