Atkins Advantage Snack Bars
Low carb diets are still very popular, but the biggest obstacle to over come for many people is having to completely cut out any junk food because they’re all so high in sugar, and most protein bars lack the flavor to really subdue cravings. The Atkins Advantage snack bars solve this by being extremely tasty while also being low in sugars.

The Four Leaf Clover
You don’t need a gambling addiction to know how lucky the four leaf clover can be. The origins of the clover comes from Adam & Eve where Eve picks one for good luck. Additional lore states that each clover represents something: Faith, Hope, Love, & Luck.
Knock on Wood
Knocking on wood is a common way to avoid jinxing yourself or making sure nothing bad happens. This tradition comes from Pagans who considered the trees as a living spirit. When a tree was cut down, Pagans believed that the spirits would be replaced by bad omens. This is why they knocked on the wood to scare away the bad spirits.
Black cats were originally a good luck sign by Pagans. As feuds began between Christians and Pagans, Christians often pointed out the black cat as a bad luck symbol and associated it with the Pagans. This curse grew over time and is now the norm.
Founded in 1776
The Order of the Illuminati was founded on May 1, 1776 in Bavaria, Germany. A couple of months later — on July 4, 1776 on the other side of the world — the signing of the Declaration of Independence marked the founding of the United States of America.
Hasn’t Been Around Since 1785
Despite many rumors and conspiracy theories about the continued existence of the Illuminati — there’s no actual proof that they are still around today.
The truth is that the original Bavarian Illuminati was infiltrated by government agents and forced to shut down in 1785. That’s when Charles Theodore, the Bavarian ruler — encouraged by the Catholic Church — outlawed all secret societies. The order’s founder, Adam Weishaupt, fled the country. As far as we know, that was the end of that!
The love of a good conspiracy theory — combined with a fascination for celebrity gossip — has led to all sorts of rumors about which famous people might be Illuminati members. Hand gestures like the triangle symbol are used as “proof” that the Illuminati still exists, and that these celebs are members. Crazy? You decide!
