“If you crush up garlic, does it create an allicin wonderland?”

Allicin is an organosulfur compound obtained from garlic. “Allicin Wonderland” is an obvious pun on Alice in Wonderland.

“The body is, in fact, a veritable allicin wonderland” was printed in the Sydney (New South Wales) Morning Herald on March 15, 1988. “Aged garlic extract and garlic oil were the substances that were studied. Carter is confused in the allicin wonderland” was posted on the newsgroup misc.health.aids on May 22, 1997. “We’ve (GarlicLover.com—ed.) also added some great new features, including a weekly column called ‘Allicin Wonderland.’ This week’s Allicin Wonderland looks at a popular topic: How to Store Garlic” was posted on the newsgroup rec.food.marketplace on February 17, 1999.

“If you mix garlic with a hallucinogenic, you’d get an Allicin Wonderland” was posted on Twitter by Lifestyle Markets on September 21, 2011. “Garlic is the Allicin Wonderland of alliums! Eat up” was posted on Twitter by Dr. Elizabeth Stroot, PT on December 22, 2013. “If you crush up garlic, does it create an allicin wonderland?” was posted on Twitter by Lily Scott 🏳️‍⚧️ on April 25, 2022. “What do you call a restaurant that predominantly uses garlic as an ingredient that caters to literary nerds?

Wikipedia: Allicin
Allicin is an organosulfur compound obtained from garlic, a species in the family Alliaceae. It was first isolated and studied in the laboratory by Chester J. Cavallito and John Hays Bailey in 1944. When fresh garlic is chopped or crushed, the enzyme alliinase converts alliin into allicin, which is responsible for the aroma of fresh garlic. The allicin generated is unstable and quickly changes into a series of other sulfur-containing compounds such as diallyl disulfide. Allicin is part of a defense mechanism against attacks by pests on the garlic plant.

Wikipedia: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (commonly Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 English novel by Lewis Carroll. A young girl named Alice falls through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world of anthropomorphic creatures. It is seen as an example of the literary nonsense genre.

Newspapers.com
15 March 1988, Sydney (New South Wales) Morning Herald, “Fads: Cure-all with a whiff of romance” by Robin Ingram, Good Living, pg. 1, col. 5:
The pungency of garlic comes from a compound named allicin, and it is the allicin that is so valuable to the body. The body is, in fact, a veritable allicin wonderland.

ALLICIN WONDERLAND When I think of all the marketing hype some garlic companies have given this ephemeral sulphur compound, I’m reminded of Alice in Wonderland, a world in which “nothing is as it seems and yet everything is as it seems.”
