Nutrition: not a single fuck was given.

America’s favorite Thanksgiving recipes, via The Economist. See the large version here.



People lined up around the corner to buy ham. Is this a thing? I mean, I know that ham and Christmas is kind of like turkey and Thanksgiving, but is it common for people to line up on Christmas Eve for it? Or are these just your average late shoppers? Oh, also—are stores like this open only for the holiday season or are they open all year?

(Yeah, I know, taking a picture of the rearview mirror while a semi truck is coming towards you isn’t the smartest idea. Let’s just say that I didn’t win any Nobel prizes this year, okay?)

I don’t know how old this post is but this is normal for my job (HoneyBaked). I’m not sure why people try to buy hams the day before a holiday but they do. Also, we’re open year round, we have sandwiches. ^_^

Two years later, my questions are answered. So buying ham one day before a holiday is a thing. And the stores are open year-round. Who knew? (Except for HoneyBaked Ham employees, that is.)

Graphing the Popularity of Halloween Candy

I think the perennial popularity of Reese’s and Snickers goes a long way to show that the peanut allergy hysteria is pretty much BS.

(I’m not saying that the condition isn’t deadly serious for those afflicted, but the prevalence has been blown way out of proportion.)

Unflavored, it tastes sour and wheaty, with a wan viscosity that gives off the impression of having already passed through someone else’s body.
Soylent was invented by someone who didn’t know enough that a steady diet of Hot-N-Ready pizzas would be unhealthy.
it’s disgusting and like the shitty off-brand kind [that] old people give out.
Bon Appetit renders harsh judgment on an organic pretender to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Y’know, maybe people should just stop trying to make healthy candy happen.

So this exists: a special plastic bowl just for microwaving ramen noodles. The Ramen Rater tested it and interviewed its inventor, Chris Johnson:

Johnson told me how he has always enjoyed instant noodles, but the amount of time it took to cook just wasn’t instant enough for him.

"Not instant enough." Yikes. Well, I shouldn’t judge, because apparently this thing works really well and the Ramen Rater gave it full marks. Now I’m torn by whether I should cheer for American ingenuity or mourn the end of civilization over this.
