The Biggest Story in US-India History

dave submitted this story (and the title) regarding mangoes from India now being allowed to be imported into the US. For almost 20 years, Indian mangoes (thought to be some of the best in the world) weren't allowed in this country because of FDA import standards. And there was a little problem with...



Bacon and cheese stuffed pizza burger

dave submitted a link and the title of this post basically describes it. But it's still incredible (in both good and bad ways) to see the walkthrough of how to put it together. I wonder how bad just a single slice would be for you? I especially appreciate how they made sure to use a cheese-stuffed crust...



Subway Gone Kosher / KCJC scoops Haaaaaaaaaaaaretz

dave submitted a story from the Kansas City Jewish Chronicle about how a kosher Subway opened in Kansas City, saying the best quote is: "Who wants to cook dinner Thursday night when you're already preparing for Shabbos?" The kosher Subway offers much the same type of food that a regular Subway does....



The diet soda and weight brouhaha

Here it comes...an ABC news article nailed this story yesterday, calling out what was wrong with it and providing some common sense information. But today the story's picked up like wildfire and the sensationalist headlines have got all the news sources all caught up. The story is that artificial sweetners...



Don't double dip the chip

Timmy: "Did, did you just double dip that chip? That's like putting your whole mouth right in the dip!" George: "You dip the way you want to dip, I'll dip the way I want to dip," *aims another used chip at the bowl* Apparently that scene was enough to get Clemson University to do a study of germ...



The Israeli Mustard

Mark submitted a link saying, "I was going to write up something for Hoagie Middle East, but in light of our previous discussion on your site, I thought this article about bring hummus to school cafeterias might be more fitting. It's healthy, but always terrible in America. I've never had good hummus...



Best recipe ever

I'm a big fan of honey mustard and most restaurants have it and it's really good. But I've always found that none of the store brands match up, and this confused me because it doesn't seem all that complicated to make. So I started trying a few different recipes to see which one tasted best. Here's one...



Hillshire Farm ads

I gotta say, this ad campaign for Hillshire Farms salads is pretty funny. Though PETA might disagree. Update: Here's 3 more videos, and I'm putting the lyrics for the second one in the comments. Update 2: Someone has designed Go Meat shirts on CafePress.



Cool Whip is delicious

Or in the words of Wired, it's "a delicious blend of sugar, wax, and condom lube." Dave submitted this story where Wired breaks down the ingredients of Cool Whip. Some of the good ones: Polysorbate 60 Polysorbates are made by polymerizing ethylene oxide (a precursor to antifreeze) with a sugar alcohol...



Subway is deceptive

Hey, check out this commercial! Subway's sandwiches are so much healthier than a Burger King chicken sandwich! Wait a second, is it really? Sure, they compared the fat content, but let's see what's really going on here: In a currently airing commercial, they compare a particular Subway sandwich with...



Coke Zero doesn't suck

Apparently Coke just surprised people with a "better than expected quarterly profit...as the continued rollout of Coke Zero helped boost sales in many countries." So it looks like Coke Zero is doing better than expected. And I'm finding the news to be quite interesting since I'm just starting to replace...



Pizza Vending Machine!

A 9" pizza in just 2 minutes from a vending machine?!? This is crazy. I can't even microwave a pizza in that much time, so I'm guessing the vending machine houses about 5 Oompa-loompas with some heavy duty blowtorches. Wonder Pizza of Italy will place America 's most popular food source in places...



Panera doesn't know what a sandwich is

Apparently a Panera in the White City Shopping Center in Shrewsbury is arguing that a burrito is a sandwich. Panera has a clause in its lease that prevents the White City Shopping Center in Shrewsbury from renting to another sandwich shop. Panera tried to invoke that clause to stop the opening of...



A cheesy theft

Having a big party? What better way to prepare for it than robbing a cheese factory? This burglary has all the makings of a giant tailgate party. The burglars who hit a central Wisconsin cheese factory early Monday made off with nearly 350 pounds of meat, more than 100 pounds of cheese and a dozen...



Iron Chef serves pasta with duck balls, not meatballs

dave submitted an article about a restaurant in New York owned by Mario Batali of Iron Chef fame. The offal that has critics talking is a pasta dish served with black truffles, coxcombs and duck testicles, priced at $30. "They're delicious, they don't taste like anything you've had before. They're...



The foods you like say a lot about you

dave submitted an article about how the type of food you eat could reflect your personality and judgement. When a trial attorney asked to use [Dr. Alan] Hirsch's research about food preferences and personality to help pick a jury, Hirsch had a warning: "I told him not to pick people who like cheese...



Is BBQ cancerous?

According to a Reuters article, a connection has been found between barbecued meat and prostate cancer. A compound formed when meat is charred at high temperatures -- as in barbecue -- encourages the growth of prostate cancer in rats, researchers reported on Sunday. Their study, presented at a meeting...



Healthier bacon

dave submitted a story in the Kansas City Star about the possibility of healthier bacon. Using genetic engineering, pigs were produced with more healthy fat. Scientists using genetic engineering techniques have produced pigs rich in omega-3 fatty acids -- a kind of healthy fat abundant in fish but...



IPIFINI lets you choose your own cola - after purchase [Update]

The number of cola combinations has quickly grown. There's the usual regular or diet, and then the more recent variations like lime, cherry, vanilla, caffeine-free, and a million others. The list doesn't apply to just cola either, as evidenced by Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper. But what if you want to...



Best Burgers

junosand (mark) submitted an article with the description "Compare the top-rated burger joints in the cities of Chicago and St. Louis. Chicago has local places throughout the list. The #1 burger restaurant in St. Louis - Hardee's. Also on the list, Steak 'n' Shake and Whitecastle."



Meal and dessert in one: It's the donut burger!

dave submitted what's actually a bit of a nauseating story from ESPN.com. A minor league Illinois baseball team is going to unveil "baseball's best burger" at their stadium this year. They're touting it as a meal and dessert in one. The ballpark sandwich will include a hamburger topped with sharp...



Chocolate champ

dave submitted a Sun Times article about a 20-year old winning a chocolate eating contest. Today may be Valentine's Day, but Monday was the sweeter day for Pat Bertoletti. The Kendall College student devoured nearly two pounds of milk-chocolate hearts in seven minutes to win $2,500 in a contest...



McDonald's fries are even worse than you thought

dave submitted a story in the Chicago Tribune about how a study McDonald's did showed their fries had more trans fat than they had been stating on the label. Correcting a labeling error, the hamburger giant acknowledged Wednesday that the trans fat content in an order of its large fries is one-third...



Carbonated Yogurt

The title really says it all. According to Wired, Brigham Young University has created carbonated yogurt. It's a little tart and a little sweet, and bubbles lightly with fruity flavor as it hits your tongue. People who like regular yogurt will probably find it tasty and also slightly weird, given...



Cooking with 7-Up (and other things)

I came across a link to the Gallery of Regrettable Food which digs up some of the more bizzare recipes introduced in the post-depression era from old cookbooks. As the site says: "They're not really recipe books. They're ads for food companies, with every recipe using the company's products, often...



Best Chicago Pizza?

dave writes: "I've loved deep dish pizza for many years - Gino's East was my first experience in Chicago in recent memory, about 3 years ago. Since then i've had Giardonno's, Lou Malnati's, Pizano's and a lot more Gino's East. They were all good, but either the crust wasn't perfect, it was too runny,...
