Weed aficionados, take note: you don’t have to go as far as Colorado or Washington to have a little marijuana-themed fun. Just head over to New Jersey's first (and only) weed-themed cafe, Weedbukx Cafe, opening in Trenton on April 20 (of course). But before you camp out in front of the resto, know this: there's no actually weed here. It's just weed-themed.
The soda aisle might look a little sparse in the coming days: Pepsi announced it's pulling six-packs and two-liter bottles from stores in Philly and it's blaming the beverage tax. The City of Brotherly Love just levied a 1.5 cent per-ounce tax on sweetened and diet beverages. Ouch.
So Pepsi announced it's pulling its products, which include Mountain Dew, Gatorade, and Lipton Iced Tea, until it can figure out package sizes consumers can better afford, rather than passing on an almost $1.50 increase because of the tax.
If you happen to be a cheese addict (just like the rest of us), you'll want to pay attention. In a recent investigation by the University College Dublin (UCD), researchers found that eating cheese does not necessarily lead to obesity and heart disease. Craving some Oaxaca, Manchego or Cotija cheese? Now you are.
You can thank a woman for the cafe con leche that fuels your fire. In 1908, Melitta Bentz, tired of having coffee grinds in her morning brew, hammered holes into a brass cup and lined it with blotting paper from her son's notebooks. In so doing, this German housewife invented the first modern coffee filter and caffeinated generations to come. Ingenuous? Yes, and also brave.
Even chefs aren't immune to the excitement surounding the forthcoming release of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Inspired by the romantic fairy tale, Chef José Andrés has created a 10-course Beauty and the Beast-themed dinner to celebrate its return to the big screen.
A recent investigation made by CBC News Marketplace revealed that the oven roasted chicken used for Subway sandwiches is only 57 percent real chicken. What's the rest? Soy.
The test that yielded these alarming results was conducted at Trent University Wildlife Forensic DNA Laboratory. It explains that when chicken is processed, seasoned, and steeped in marinade, its real chicken DNA decreases.
National Margarita Day has arrived, and to celebrate, New York’s Bodega Negra and Tequila Patron have partnered to create a new, majestic pizza you're guaranteed to love. For a mere $500, the Platinum Margarita Marguerita Pizza can be yours. Why the hefty price tag?
