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." …

Is McDonald’s Archburger a reboot of its big flop?

Image

The ‘grown-up’ Arch Deluxe is considered a major failure in the annals of American marketing.

NEW YORK (AP) — McDonald’s is testing the use of fresh beef in another burger, the latest move by the fast food chain to swap out frozen beef as it seeks to improve its image.

[…]

The Archburger, $2.19, is 3 ounces of meat on a potato-flour bun, with cheese, onion, pickle and the mustardy “Arch Sauce.” Higher-priced variations add lettuce and tomato or bacon.

The Arch Deluxe, marketed as a more “grown-up” burger, also had the potato-flour bun and Arch Sauce, as well as cheese, onion, leaf lettuce, tomato and peppered bacon. It was priced at $2.09 to $2.49 at its introduction in May 1996 — $3.30 to $3.90 in today’s prices. It was pulled from most restaurants’ menus in barely more than a year, was officially discontinued in 2000 and is considered a major failure in the annals of American marketing.

[…]

Yay! The return of the burger that makes children sad!

Doritos, For Her

PepsiCo's CEO, Indra Nooyi, says her company is designing less crunchy Doritos for women.
Paul Sakuma/AP


Indra Nooyi, the CEO of global giant PepsiCo, says her company is trying to solve women's "least favorite things" about Doritos by developing a version of the snack designed specifically for women.

In a recent interview with WNYC's Freakonomics, Nooyi discussed the different ways that men and women eat chips. Men "lick their fingers with great glee, and when they reach the bottom of the bag they pour the little broken pieces into their mouth, because they don't want to lose that taste of the flavor, and the broken chips in the bottom," Nooyi said.

"Women would love to do the same, but they don't," she continued. "They don't like to crunch too loudly in public. And they don't lick their fingers generously and they don't like to pour the little broken pieces and the flavor into their mouth."

Freaknonomics host Stephen Dubner asked Nooyi if her company is developing a "male and female version of chips." Nooyi responded,
"It's not a male and female as much as 'are there snacks for women that can be designed and packaged differently?' And yes, we are looking at it, and we're getting ready to launch a bunch of them soon. For women, low-crunch, the full taste profile, not have so much of the flavor stick on the fingers, and how can you put it in a purse? Because women love to carry a snack in their purse."
