Worst of the Worst

I started my morning off with a Hardee’s steak biscuit.  I resisted the temptation to try their Monster Biscuit, a menu item that has gained the restaurant a place on the list of the Worst Foods for 2009.  According to the list, published over on Men’s Health, the Monster Biscuit...

Nice Cream

My dad refers to “ice cream” as “nice cream” every time he mentions it.  Every...single...time.  One day, it’ll be an endearing trait.  We just haven’t reached that day, yet.  In any case, here’s a clever little flavor name of nice, er, ice cream that Ben & Jerry’s has come up...

The Drug of Choice

I don’t watch Oprah.  I just wanted to point that out before I got too far into this.  I certainly have nothing against Oprah Winfrey, but her show comes on at a time that’s inconvenient for me to watch, and I can’t imagine trying to record a talk show for...

The Pilgrims Didn’t, But I’m Gonna…

Contrary to popular belief, the Pilgrims didn’t feature turkey as the primary dish in that legendary first Thanksgiving dinner. They ate deer.  According to the journal of one of the participants, Indians killed five of them — deer, not Pilgrims — for the big meal.  There’s also mention that others...

McMissing

McDonald’s is advertising the return of the McRib sandwich.  I like the McRib, even though I find it odd that the meat seems to have been pressed into a shape resembling a portion of a rack of ribs much like particle board is pressed into the shape of furniture. Still,...

Acquired Taste

In a local news weekly, West Of, Jeffrey Gredlein writes a column called BeerSnob, in which he critiques varieties of beer. This week’s column is about the history of Budweiser, the “Great American lager,” which has recently been sold to a Belgian company.  He’s less than enthusiastic about Bud, but...

Self-Icing Coke?

New technology may one day keep your Coke product ice-cold without ever needing time in your refrigerator. The Coca-Cola Company has managed to create a mechanism inside the bottle that will create ice from the drink itself from the moment the cap comes off.  It will be tested on Sprite...

Would You Like Greens With That?

My lunch yesterday consisted of a hamburger, made with a ground chuck patty grilled on a George Foreman-like grill, whole wheat bun, and low-fat mayonnaise.  The obvious missing ingredient was a slice of cheese. For a side item, instead of some sort of fried potatoes (which I’d have much preferred),...

As The Stomach Turns

It’s official. Apparently, there are people who will deep-fry anything. It’s bad enough that carnivals and state fairs offer deep-fried fare ranging from Snickers bars to Twinkies to pickles. In Wisconsin, they decided to deep-fry something else. I can’t bring myself to type anything more on the subject....

Piled in a Heap

I just saw a commercial for a Denny's breakfast item in which several components of the breakfast meal are piled up in a heap in the same bowl. I'm not sure what all is included, but I know that it begins with hash browns and eggs. A co-worker of mine...
