Our research has uncovered a real market of horrors which is making money out of one of the most painful scourges of our society.
Roberto Moncalvo • The president of the Italian agricultural group Coldiretti, on the group’s anger over the usage of Mafia-related imagery to sell food products outside of Italy. (Key example: Herman Cain-tied Godfather’s Pizza.) The group wants more sensitivity from the rest of the world about an often-violent issue which is still very real to them, and costs Italian businesses roughly $20 billion per year.

The U.S. doesn’t like hummus as much as everyone else. Why is that?

  • 26% the percentage of Americans that regularly buy hummus. Another 80 million americans don’t even know what the hell hummus is. Hummus, one of the world’s most popular foods, has failed to successfully crack the American market the way that, say, Ranch dressing has, but that’s not for lack of trying. The hummus-producing giant Sabra, owned by Pepsico, is going out of its way to sell Middle America on the idea that ground chickpeas are awesome. source

A quick tip for your elevator ride up to the office: grab a piping hot cuppa joe at the corner store and stick an egg in it to make a hard boiled morning snack.

If you feel like you didn’t get a lunch break today, this number is for you

  • 48% the percentage of workers whose lunch hour is more like a lunch half-hour. That’s still an overestimation. For a lot of us it’s more like a lunch quarter-hour, most of that time spent acquiring said lunch. source

History repeats itself, McDonald’s coffee edition.

  • 1994 A jury awarded $2.9 million to a woman who suffered third-degree burns after spilling a cup of hot coffee purchased from a McDonald’s in Albuquerque, NM. The ruling drew global media attention, and ultimately lead McDonald’s to begin printing a warning on all its coffee cups going forward.
  • 2014 A California resident is clearly hoping history will repeat itself, having filed suit against the burger franchise after spilling a cup of coffee she purchased at the McDonald’s on Sepulveda Boulevard in Los Angeles. Thursday’s filing doesn’t include any specific information on the extent of the plaintiff’s injuries, but does claim the lid for the woman’s coffee cup was “negligently, carelessly and improperly” attached. Anybody think this will work?

Remember that time we recommended you stock up on Sriracha?

  • Last Month The town of Irwindale, CA asked a judge to force Huy Fong Foods to cease operations at a local Sriracha facility where the company processes millions of chiles each fall. Residents say preparation of the peppers led to regular emission of fumes which are now being blamed for headaches, sore throats and more.
  • Tuesday Judge Robert H. O’Brien ordered the company to halt any operations that could be producing the odor, despite acknowledging a “lack of credible evidence” proving the facility is at fault, but will not force Huy Fong Foods to completely shutter the plant. The company has yet to respond to the ruling, but many assume prices will soon increase based on previous comments from Huy Fong Foods founder David Tran. source

Are you a fan of Sriracha? If so, we’d suggest picking up a few extra bottles soon. The town of Irwindale, CA has filed a lawsuit against Huy Fong Foods, demanding the company halt operations at its local factory after many residents began complaining of burning eyes, lungs and occasional headaches. The company plans to fight the lawsuit, but founder David Tran says consumers can expect Sriracha prices to increase “a lot” if Irwindale forces the plant to close. According to Tran, Huy Fong Foods is currently producing 200,000 bottles of Sriracha per day, all of which are pre-sold, but the company is still struggling to meet demand as is. A judge is expected to issue a ruling on the matter this Thursday. (Photo via ilovememphis) source
