FDA: 'Love' is not a real ingredient in bakery's granola
CONCORD, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts bakery's granola may be made with love, but federal officials say it shouldn't be listed as an ingredient on the package.

Nashoba Brook Bakery, in Concord, has been told by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that the label on its Nashoba Granola lists "love," and that needs to change. …

Pretty sure there is no one on this forum that is as obsessed with food as much as I am. Currently I have a 6 foot bookshelf that is packed with cook books and food related books (the professional Chef, on food and cooking) as well as more books that are stacked in various places. I spend hours googling and asking others opinions and questions about food.

This is true. And two weeks from now, I'll be there again - along with AlwaysGoingToWDW - taking pictures at the Epcot Food & Wine Festival. I've met a few Iron Chefs, chatted with Food Network chefs, have been retweeted by Food Network Star contestants, and my son is on a first-name basis with one of the Food Network Star champions (Justin Warner).

Dunkin' Donuts new strategy to spice up sales: Fewer donuts
Image

It may be time to make the doughnuts -- just a lot fewer of them.

Dunkin' Donuts is testing out a "less is more" strategy in about 1,000 locations out of its 9,000 U.S. stores. The streamlined stores will sell a minimum of what it calls 18 "core donuts," down from about 30 varieties. Dunkin' Donuts said in a statement that, depending on how customers respond, it may pare down its selection nationwide.

The revamped menu comes as parent company Dunkin' Brands Group (DNKN) tries to take on Starbucks as a contender for consumers' favorite coffee chain, which may explain a smaller emphasis on doughnuts. It's also testing a Pasadena, California-based store bearing the shortened name "Dunkin,'" which omits any mention of doughnuts. The company has said it might roll out the new branding to more stores next year.

Limiting doughnut options "will provide a more consistent experience from store to store, and in some cases will actually increase both the variety and quantity of donuts available to our guests," Dunkin' Donuts said in an emailed statement to CBS MoneyWatch. "We will assess the results of the test before making any determination about a possible national rollout." …
