Thanks! I've added it and it is live on the page. He is also credited for discovering caffeine. (bless the man!)

Dover AFB, DE(Zone 7a)

Sweet! We have Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge to thank! I love/live on caffeine....

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

Me, too. If we took the coffee out of my system, my blood volume would probably drop by a quart or two. (And so would my energy level and mood!)

Cochise, AZ(Zone 8b)

Can we have his entry changed next year to reflect his "real" contribution?

Dover AFB, DE(Zone 7a)

LOL! We DO enjoy that contribution more.

Benton, KY(Zone 7a)

Oh, I added that as well!

Couldn't let a discovery that important go uncredited.

Milton, MA(Zone 6a)

I would enjoy my CAFFEINE less w.o SUGAR!!!

Hanceville, AL(Zone 7a)

I would like to know where I could get some beet sugar as I am allergic to cane sugar. I have started using white corn syrup in my tea. I use sweetener in my coffee, but it just does not do justice to tea. Luciee {;^)

GrammygardenAZ, what was his "real" contribution? Luciee

Benton, KY(Zone 7a)

It seems that folks were more impressed with the caffeine contribution than the sugar one.
If you'll put 'purchase beet sugar' in your search engine, you'll find all sorts of sources. Many companies sell it.

Thanks, Melody!

Benton, KY(Zone 7a)

You're quite welcome.

Dolan Springs, AZ(Zone 9a)

Luciee- I use honey in both coffee and tea, simply because I like that it is healthy in every way.

Hanceville, AL(Zone 7a)

Mountain dweller, I like honey in tea but not in coffee. Thanks, luciee {;^)
