The pursuit of the elusive churros you love from the corner señora (who’s never there when you need her) is over. Pillsbury just launched Cinnamon Sugar Churro Bites; they come frozen and are ready to pop in the microwave to enjoy within minutes.
You know that sad look on your dog’s face when he sees you eating an ice cream cone on a hot summer day and knows he can't partake? Well, scrap that guilty feeling, dog owners, because there's a new breed - pun intended - of ice cream vendor in town.
This summer, dog owners in Mexico City can take their dogs to Don Paletto, a first-of-its-kind ice cream shop that serves ice pops and cones that are especially made for and safety approved for dogs to eat. Mauricio Montoya, Don Paletto's owner, guarantees the recipes are safe for humans and dogs alike.
Soon, according to The Junk Food Isle, Oreos will add another tasty treat to its growing cookie kingdom: Coconut and Salted Caramel Oreo Thins.
Response to the announcement has been mixed. While some argue that Oreo Thins are mere offshoots of an already great cookie, others love the thin cookie movement, which ameliorates at least some of the guilt they feel after eating the whole stack.
Our beloved avocado found a new home! The delicious and oh so trendy Mexican fruit inspired three Italian entrepreneurs (under 30 no less!) to open Avocaderia, the first all-avocado restaurant, at Industry City, right on the waterfront of Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
If you thought women were having more vino than men at your last family reunion, you were right. A new study from the U.S. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism revealed that women 60 and older are indulging in binge drinking more than ever.

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.
