  • In Home Of Original Sriracha Sauce, Thais Say Rooster Brand Is Nothing To Crow About

    Sriracha sauce. It's everywhere. Even beer and donuts. The fiery chili paste concocted by Vietnamese-American immigrant David Tran has conquered the American market and imagination in the past decade. But the original Sriracha is actually Thai — and comes from the seaside city of Si Racha, where most residents haven't even heard of the U.S. brand, which is now being exported to Thailand. I decided to go to the source to get the dirt on the sauce, and sat down with 71-year-old Saowanit Trikityanukul. Her grandmother was making Sriracha sauce when David Tran was still a baby, in what was...
  • The diet to save lives, the planet and feed us all?

    A diet has been developed that promises to save lives, feed 10 billion people and all without causing catastrophic damage to the planet. Scientists have been trying to figure out how we are going to feed billions more people in the decades to come. Their answer - "the planetary health diet" - does not completely banish meat and dairy. But it requires a ginormous shift in what we pile onto our plates and turning to foods that we barely eat. What changes am I going to have to make? If you eat meat every day then this is the first...
  • Reggie Bush says Clemson’s fast food spread from Trump was ‘disrespectful on so many levels’

    Former NFL player Reggie Bush said Monday he thought President Trump’s “American fast food” spread in celebration of the Clemson Tigers was a disservice to what the team had accomplished. Earlier this month, the college football team scored their second national championship in three seasons, defeating the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide with a final score of 44-16. In a visit to the White House following their victory, Trump told reporters Monday that he foot the bill for a feast that included “lots of hamburgers” and “lots of pizza.” "We have some very large people that like eating, so I think...
  • Is This A Joke? Did WaPo Really Fact-Check Trump Over His Fast Food Dinner

    Is this a joke? No, seriously, I thought this was a joke, but it looks like a legitimate story from the Washington Post. They actually did an analysis of the fast food spread President Trump had for the Clemson Tigers, who recently won the College Football Playoff National Championship. Trump had a delicious feast of McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and Burger King waiting for the champions. To normal Americans, this is fine. The government is shut down so the White House kitchen isn’t operating at full capacity. The president footed the bill for the meal. To the D.C. elites and the opposition...

    Monday night the Clemson Football National Champions made a visit to the White House where President Trump hosted them for dinner in the State Dining Room. The President personally paid for a lavish spread of fast food from a variety of establishments. “The President wanted to host a fun event to celebrate the College Football National Champion Clemson Tigers. Because the Democrats refuse to negotiate on border security, much of the residence staff at the White House is furloughed – so the President is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone’s favorite fast foods,” Press Secretary...
  • 25 Of The Worst Food Name Fails Ever

    We’re pretty picky about how our food is packaged – choosing the wrong name, packaging color or logo can scare us away from a product. You’d think that a food company would want to do some research to make sure that their product isn’t ridiculed or doesn’t seem repulsive, but judging by these food name package design fails, some of these guys don’t seem to have gotten that memo. Some of these are translation fails – we can only hope that that Chinese food company isn’t selling shredded children and that it was actually a funny fail. Others, like the...

  • Millions of Americans Are Wrong About Having a Food Allergy, Study Suggests

    19 percent of the nationally representative group reported having a food allergy. But only 10.8 percent said they had symptoms consistent with an allergic reaction to food, such as hives, swelling of the lips or throat, and chest pain. The main culprits behind these allergies were shellfish, milk, and tree nuts. Those who didn’t have a convincing food allergy instead reported symptoms like stomach cramps, a stuffy nose, or nausea. The findings, published Friday in JAMA Network Open, roughly match up to estimates from other studies, including those that confirmed a person’s food allergy with testing or medical records. In...

    Lee Oui-ryuk was on the verge of dying of starvation when he stole a block of tofu in a market in North Korea at the height of a nationwide famine. Too weak to run away after he swiped the food, Lee continued eating as the seller cried and beat him with a metal rod, staining the white tofu red with his blood. At nine years old he knew the theft would end in violence, but in his head he repeated over and over: “Even if you are beaten, keep eating.” He eventually passed out and when he awoke, took a...

  • Trump Admin Moves Toward New Work Requirements for Food Stamp Recipients

    Western Journal ^ | Dec. 23, 2018 | AP Staff
    The Trump administration is setting out to do what this year’s farm bill didn’t: tighten work requirements for millions of Americans who receive federal food assistance. The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Thursday is proposing a rule that would restrict the ability of states to exempt work-eligible adults from having to obtain steady employment to receive food stamps. The move comes just weeks after lawmakers passed a $400 billion farm bill that reauthorized agriculture and conservation programs while leaving the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, which serves roughly 40 million Americans, virtually untouched. Passage of the farm bill followed months of...

    According to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), Popeyes is responsible for the slaughter of millions of chicken each year. PETA took aim at the popular food chain after they released an “Emotional Support Chicken” Tuesday to “provide a good-hearted laugh most need to get through stressful holiday air travel.” Travelers at Philadelphia International Airport can purchase their meal with the special “Emotional Support Chicken” carrier in Terminal C. “We know holiday travel can be frustrating, and there’s no better way to ease stress than with a box of delicious Popeyes fried chicken and a good laugh,” said...

Chick-fil-A would leapfrog past Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy’s, the No. 4, 5 and 6 chains respectively, according to the firm.
