If someone asked you what KFC serves, the first answer you'd say would most likely be fried chicken. Of course, this isn't a wrong answer; KFC does sell all sorts of fried chicken, including drumsticks, breasts, and even tenders and popcorn chicken. But aside from the usual 12-piece with mashed potatoes and biscuits or popcorn chicken and macaroni and cheese, KFC has experimented with its fried chicken in many different ways.
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.
McDonald's has been a staple of fast food in the United States and around the world for decades. The iconic spot known for slinging Big Macs and fries continues to have fans flocking to it on the regular. Maybe they think McDonald's burgers are delicious because they're made with 100% beef. More than 40% of people polled in a Mashed survey named McDonald's fries as the best in fast food, so maybe that explains it. Whatever the case, clearly, fans have a reason to flock, but some customers may be a bit too eager to visit their local fast food joint.

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.

Football season is in full swing, and you'd be hard-pressed to find many Americans who aren't glued to their televisions for hours every Sunday cheering on their favorite teams.

Good thing wing prices have fallen according to Today.
What was first a rumor riding on the wind has now been officially confirmed: Trader Joe's free samples are back. A post on Twitter dated December 11, 2019 portrays a different world. The tweet reads:,"The free sample at Trader Joe's today was chocolate hummus on a banana chip." The real irony came in with the words followed, "and now TJs is officially canceled." Three months later, SFGATE reported that Trader Joe's, among others on the Supermarket scene, had halted in-store food sampling. Now customers may long for a time when they could complain about the samples offered at their favorite grocery store.

Each Halloween season, special snacks, candies, and other goods flood the supermarket shelves to create a spooky feel for all who celebrate. Cheetos is one of the companies to jump on the trend with its Bag of Bones — a white cheddar snack shaped like skulls, hand bones, feet bones, and ribcages (per Junk Food Betty). One product released this year is Jett-Puffed Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows, per Fox 8. The company didn't stop there, however. It also came out with candy corn-flavored marshmallows.
Those of us who love pizza really don't need science to explain our passion for this delectable meal, but we'll get science to explain anyway. Per The Washington Post, our love of pizza can actually be broken down with the help of food chemistry. First, there is the way pizza toppings — which can include cheese, pepperoni, sausage, and tomato — are filled with a substance known as glutamate, which can act as a trigger that will make our mouths happy. Then there is the way a pizza is cooked. A fully baked pizza is caramelized and has come alive thanks to the Maillard reaction, which causes cheese to become brown, crisp, and melty, adopting not just a new flavor but also a different mouthfeel (per Steel City Pizza).

Let's say you're craving avocado toast for breakfast or a late-night snack — but you open the refrigerator to find that someone else has beaten you to the avocado that was just there the day before. It's a problem, sure, but it's not like you're out of options. Maybe there's some artisanal peanut butter in the pantry, or some pesto and feta cheese hiding in a corner of the fridge. Maybe you can track down some hummus and edamame or even a banana somewhere.
Since the pandemic hit more than two years ago, supply chains and staffing issues have led to plenty of problems in the food service industry. Restaurants have struggled to find employees, with 750,000 fewer people in the industry than in May 2020, per CNBC. And that's not the only problem that's forced chains and mom-and-pop restaurants alike to re-evaluate their businesses.
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.
