While there may not be huge benefits associated with drinking cold water, downing a tepid fruit smoothie or protein shake doesn't sound enjoyable. That's why Chris Gronkowski developed and pitched a one-of-a-kind insulated bottle on "Shark Tank" in 2017. Gronkowski told the Sarah Scoop blog that after retiring from the NFL after three full seasons from a hamstring injury and helping his wife with her successful Etsy business, he decided to develop "IceShaker" after too many workouts drinking from "smelly" bottles.
Coffee chains have a reputation for keeping their menus at par with the changing seasons but burger chains, not so much. While pumpkin spice in a coffee sounds great, it wouldn't exactly have a huge following in a burger, would it? So when it comes to holiday seasons, burger chains generally remain unaffected. That is, unless it's Burger King and Halloween.
The word "messy" usually carries a negative connotation — a messy house is something we're embarrassed to have guests see, and "hot mess" isn't a good look on anyone. When it describes something like a burger, though, is it a good thing or a bad thing? Messiness, after all, may be the result of many delicious toppings, all piled on top but poised to slide into your lap at first bite.
There's no denying that bakery owner and television personality Duff Goldman knows his way around a kitchen. While he's best recognized for his show-stopping cakes, the man has whipped up countless sweet creations over the years, both on television and in his own bakery. His expertise has reached such a level that he even judges other bakers on shows like "Spring Baking Championship," "Holiday Baking Championship," and "Kids Baking Championship," as per Food Network.
While breakfast may not be the most important meal of the day for all Americans, nothing is better than "breakfast foods" for dinner. According to The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, about 25% of Americans skip the morning meal. Women lead the charge, citing a busy schedule, not being hungry, or running late as explanations, per HuffPost. Still, that doesn't mean people are skipping out on classic egg recipes like omelets and breakfast burritos — they're just enjoying them at different times of the day.
Pumpkin picking is a quintessential part of fall. Whether an individual is looking for the smallest or largest one in the patch, it is always fun hauling back the pickings to the car. But this particular pumpkin, which was just crowned the 38th Annual All New England Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off winner, would be quite heavy to bring back home (via Food & Wine).
Costco's pumpkin pies have a track record any bakery will be proud of. A 2015 edition of Costco Connection indicated that the store sold 5.3 million pies that year, per Insider. Given that Costco also had 698 stores at the end of that year and 838 warehouses today, per The Motley Fool, we can't even guess at how many more pumpkin pies the warehouse chain is expected to sell this year.

Plus, Business Insider did some math and found that buying coffee-shop beverages every day can cost you anywhere from $240 to $1,200 a year, while brewing it at home only adds up to about $45.

Dominique Crenn is a unique force in the food world. Although she never went to culinary school, she emigrated from France to San Francisco to work at some of the city's best restaurants, including Jeremiah Tower's legendary Stars (via TEDx San Francisco). After a stint cooking in Indonesia, Crenn returned to San Francisco, where she earned a Michelin star while working as the chef de cuisine at Luce. After that success, she struck out on her own, opening her passion project restaurant, Atelier Crenn. The poetic, whimsical food at that restaurant garnered her two (eventually three) Michelin stars, making her the first female chef in America to receive multiple Michelin stars, per Fine Dining Lovers.
People and their content become popular on TikTok for various reasons — like the TikToker with her questionable corndog reinvention. TikTok, the world's seventh most popular social media platform, per Oberlo, is a powerful tool in the hands of anyone willing to think out of the box, like one TikToker with their less-than-appetizing recipe. For example, one TikTok user demonstrated watering down ketchup because it has "tons of sugar and lots of red dyes." Surprisingly, despite the unconventional nature of this food hack (to say the least), the clip received over 102,000 likes and 9,202 responses.
Italian culture revolves around food. Meals in Italy are meant to last for hours and have multiple courses. The restaurant wait staff will leave you alone until you request the check — a significant difference from the rushed meals we favor in the U.S., per Georgetown University. At the...

When most people think of Nashville, the first thing that comes to mind is country music — and that stands to reason since the self-described Music City — holds the Country Music Hall of Fame and Honky Tonk Highway. However, the capital of Tennessee is home to much more than just that. Of course, the state is also known for its extensive whisky distillery trail, which includes the world-famous Jack Daniels, but fewer people might know about their specialty spicy chicken.

Few other foods inspire such divisive opinions. Throughout its history, fruitcake has been the punchline of jokes, the gift that keeps on giving, and the flavor associated with Christmas for generations. Fruitcake in its modern form may have originated as a delicacy for the wealthy, but its status as a familiar yuletide trope was cemented by its mass production in the early 20th century (via Insider). Now, fruitcake is as much a part of Christmas as Rudolph, Frosty, and the man with the belly and the beard.

The wholesale superstore Costco is the mecca for those who want to snag great deals while buying in bulk. But it turns out that in some instances, bigger isn't always better, even for Costco shoppers.
As Mashed reported in an exclusive interview earlier in 2022, in May, Coca-Cola decided to discontinue its long-standing tea brand, Honest Tea. The announcement came as a shock to original Honest Tea founder, Seth Goldman, who gave the brand its start in the late 1990s. In our May interview, he spoke to Mashed about the important role Honest Tea played in both consumers' and agricultural producers' lives, as well as the void that would now be felt in the marketplace — and how this void inspired him to create a new tea line with much of the same team that helped start Honest Tea.
