Around the Web: Millennials rejecting processed food?

There was an interesting story in last Saturday’s National Post about young’uns rejecting processed food, and the impact it’s been having on the food industry. It’s certainly worth a read, if you haven’t seen it yet. At the core of the story is the revelation that younger eaters are rejecting the processed foods of the […]

Experiment: Writing a Letter for Nutritional Information (Updated!)

While writing the last review I posted for Tic Tac Mixers, I noticed there was a lack of nutritional information on the package. Being a modern gentleman, I responded to this information deficit by googling Tic Tac Mixers. This returned the company website, which had the info on it. Easy enough. But if you read […]

Review: Tic Tac Mixers Cherry Cola

I’m not sure what happened to Tic Tac in the last few years, but they’ve gone from predictably conservative to curiously experimental.

Arbitrary: How Not to Suck at Running a Food Festival Booth

It’s been a while since I was last at Taste of Edmonton. Having been in Calgary for the past few years (and now joyfully back in E-town, thank you very much), I’ve been out of the loop on Edmonton’s food festival developments, though I’m under the impression that efforts have been made to make it […]

Review: Lay’s Wavy Milk Chocolate Potato Chips

When most well-adjusted, liberty-loving North Americans think “chocolate chips,” it’s the classic cookie that comes to mind, not potato chips drenched in chocolate. And yet here we have Lay’s Wavy Milk Chocolate Covered Potato Chips, an idea that seems certain to have come from a skunk-scented apartment in the college part of town. More curious […]
