Toast is great. It is the near-perfect edible vehicle for most other foods, a vessel for a wide variety of morsels. One of the best passengers on the toast train is a nice slather of jam or jelly. The tart and sweet of the pulverized fruit pairs well with the dry crisp crunch of toast. It’s the perfect pick-me-up breakfast, or a great quick snack during the midday or before you end the night with slumber.

But since your sense of taste and smell are occupied with jammy bread, why not engage your sight? As you’re eating this wonderful classic food combination, why not feast your eyes on some random facts about movies? After all, movies come in just as many varieties as there are flavors and textures of jams and jellies.

Let your eyeballs gather up some fun trivia as your mouth chews and enjoy the small wonder that is jelly toast.
