This Ridiculously Caffeinated Sunkist Sent Someone To The Hospital

When most people think of soda, they immediately think of options such as Coke, Sprite, or Pepsi. But one of the country's most popular soda choices, according to The Daily Meal, is actually Sunkist. The brand offers 10 flavors, though you are probably most familiar with its orange soda. Sunkist is one of the few sodas on the market not owned by the Coca-Cola Company or PepsiCo. Instead, Sunkist is an agricultural cooperative owned by various citrus growers from California and Arizona. The brand also makes pistachio milk and orange juice products, though its popular orange soda (and other flavors) is licensed under the Dr. Pepper/Seven Up brand name, per the Sunkist website.

Ever wonder why Gordon Ramsay always orders crab cakes on "Kitchen Nightmares?" According to The Daily Meal, the answer is simple: Not only is it a foolproof indicator of how skilled or unskilled the head chef is, it also shows how much care the restaurant puts into what comes out of their kitchen.

Rick Bayless Just Announced This Spicy New Smashburger Collab

Smashburger always tweaks its menu in order to give diners an optimal dining experience. According to The Daily Meal, Tom Ryan, one of the co-founders of the fast food chain, uses his Ph.D. in flavor and fragrance chemistry to fine-tune the flavors of the burgers. Each location has a unique local burger on the menu, and the bread and barbecue sauce at each restaurant gets locally sourced. While many have found something to love on the chain's menu, diners might have noticed that the restaurant lacks any Mexican-inspired items. With Smashburger's latest offering, this all changes.

Why Trader Joe's Doesn't Charge By The Pound For Produce

If you haven't noticed by now, Trader Joe's is a quirky store. The Pasadena, California-founded supermarket chain has always done things a little differently than most supermarkets, a trend that's still going strong more than five decades after it opened its first location (via Reader's Digest). There are those Hawaiian shirts its employees wear, for starters; then there's the fact that each and every store has a plastic lobster somewhere inside (via Today). TJ's doesn't sell very many brand-name items, instead packaging items under its house label, which translates into savings for customers (via Eat This, Not That!).

Chef and television personality Giada De Laurentiis has been showing her fans how to whip up all kinds of Italian staples for nearly two decades now. De Laurentiis first started popping up on television screens across the country back in 2003 when her Food Network show "Everyday Italian" began airing (via IMDb).

How Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Led To The First TV Tray Dinner

They're frozen, they're fast, and they're filling — at least that's what they're marketed to be. The frozen TV dinner is a staple of cheap, easy, prepared meals, costing only a few dollars at most to prepare a full meal in only a matter of minutes. True, the TV dinner isn't exactly the healthiest food option in the world due to all that sodium, saturated fat, and starches (via The Cleveland Clinic), but there are a few frozen dinners that can be nutritious without sacrificing the quick and easy prep time. The Daily Meal suggested several healthy frozen dinners, from fish taco bowls to chicken enchilada bakes, that avoid the usually unhealthy (but sometimes delicious) offerings of flash-frozen foods.
