Food-isms of the Day

March 26, 2009
  • Oatmeal for a dollar!  Print out your coupon and go get some delicious oatmeal at Jamba Juice right now!
  • The James Beard Awards are announced!  Check out the full list.  Anyone else a little disappointed by the food blogger nominees?  They’re One Block Diet, Hunter Angler Gardener Cook and BA Foodist.  There are so many more innovative and more entertaining blogs out there by highly qualified people!
  • The Bread Art Project wants you to make your own bread art!  The best part?  For every piece you create, $1 gets donated to Feeding America.
  • Just when you thought people might start eating healthier, America proves us wrong once again.  Although if you want one meal for two days this will do the trick.  And if you can finish this monstrosity, you get a free t-shirt.  That is, if you can still fit into it…
  • There are a lot of things you can do to reduce your carbon footprint, but when did using “eco-friendly ice cubes” become one of them?!  Useful overseas where water isn’t clean, but in America?  How far are people going to go with this stuff?
  • I love coffee.  I love ice cream.  This is heavenStarbucks has teamed up with Unilever instead of the massively inferior Dreyer’s.  Unilever is the maker of both Ben & Jerry’s and Breyers.  B&J’s will always be number one on my list, and Breyer’s still destroys Dreyer’s in any match-up.  I’m already searching for where I can find these cartons of delight, not to mention ice cream bars!
  • In Chicago, the cops are called when a special at El Pollo Loco caused a complete mob of people looking for some low-priced chicken.  I guess people were taking the name El Pollo Loco (The Crazy Chicken) a little too literally!

Daily Food-isms

March 20, 2009
  • Bissinger’s Confections merges a hard-boiled egg with a Cadbury Cream Egg just in time for the Easter season.  Would you actually pay alomst $10 per egg for what is essentially a hunk of chocolate housed in an eggshell?
  • Burpee develops a Seedless Tomato!  This may be something that I will be attempting to grow this summer in my backyard!
  • The New York Times wants you to find out what your cooking personality is.  I actually fell under every single category, so I guess I’m a cooking mutant 🙂
  • Now that spring break’s almost over, some of us suddenly realize all the procrastination we’ve been doing was not a good idea. Yahoo helps in avoiding hyperventilation with 7 anxiety-fighting foods. Now I have an excuse to try and review Vosges’ Chocolate Bacon bar!
  • Smoothies aren’t always good for you!  ABC News teams up with Mat Bean of Men’s Health to highlight 4 of the worst mall foods you can eat. I don’t know about you, but I’d take the 13 chocolate frosted Dunkin’ Donuts over the grape monstrosity any day!
  • Fast food meets sustainability?  Enter Burgerville, the restaurant chain in the Pacific Northwest that offers seasonal cooking with local and sustainable ingredients.  Anyone been?  I want to know if the food’s good, because to be honest, the name of the place is horrendous.

Food-isms of the Day

  • Meat Madness! Vote for your favorite meat here, although I wish steaks had a category of their own.  And I’m thinking Ostrich is going down hard.
  • Not just nuked: in Italy, a Pizza vending machine that actually prepares and cooks your pizza!  Forget delivery, even forget DiGiorno; these babies are freshhhh.
  • And you thought the Wendy’s Baconator was unique!  Check out McDonald’s menu items from around the world.  Most unique invention goes to the McRice, although I’m digging the Prosperity Burger and the McAloo Tikki Burger.  And why do they not sell the Volcán de Chocolate in the US!?
  • George Clooney tofu?  PETA’s newest harebrained scheme in their attempt to convert the populus to a vegan lifestyle.  At least they chose someone attractive.  Seriously, could you imagine Michael Jackson tofu?  Jack-ofu!
