His Rotundity - (Swedish Fish Strawberry Gummy)
John Adams - Nicknamed "His Rotundity" for his short stature, and round waist, was quite the avid fisherman, among other things. His favorite place to fish was the Boston Harbor. During the Boston Tea Party, crates filled with supplies, tea, spices, and many other commodities were thrown overboard. Some of the boxes, located in the British supply, were stocked with a foreign species. Native to the coast's of Sweden, the invasive animal quickly took over the harbor's waters. Eventually becoming a delicacy to many of the Colonist's in the area, including His Rotundity himself.
