Bad News Fish Fans: A recent study of D.C. area restaurants and grocery stores revealed 87 percent of the establishments were misrepresenting one or more of their seafood offerings. The study was carried out at 674 retail locations, pretty much eliminating any chance of a “poor sample size” counter-argument, and has us wondering how we can teach an iPhone to sample our fish before we buy/eat it. source

America fills the Super Bowl with empty calories

  • 1,200the average calories consumed by Americans while watching the Super Bowl, according to the Calorie Control Council. We must admit, that figure was a little surprisingly low to us, when you consider it’s still shy of most people’s daily caloric targets, but as always, context matters — eating 2000 healthful calories in a day is still vastly preferable to the usual chips-n’-pizza Super Bowl fare, especially the over 1 billion chicken wings America is expected to eat tomorrow. source

Twinkie deals: Hostess liquidation gets tons of interest

  • 50+ companies have signed non-disclosure agreements in order to open discussions with Hostess about the possibility of purchasing one or more of the snack maker’s most famous brands. While the company’s chances are looking increasingly grim, it doesn’t look like the closing of Hostess will be the end of many people’s favorite snacks. The company has also reportedly received several buy-out offers, though none were actionable according to Hostess. source

Pastry News of the Day: Although news of Hostess’ impending liquidation continues to tear at the heartstrings of many Americans, we can rest assured that the Twinkie may, in fact, live on as a subsidiary of Pabst Brewing Company. Ernie is hoping for PBR-flavored Twinkies to emerge from this sale. (It’s like dipping them in water, right? — Ed.) Personally, I’m horrified that two things I do not even remotely enjoy might Voltron together into a dangerous combination of awful that will likely plague any/every social gathering I attend here in Colorado. — Scott @ SFB
Update: Apparently the universe is on our side Tumblr. There won’t be PBR Twinkies after all.

Could these Twinkies outlast their parent company? Apparently, Hostess set a 5pm EST Thursday deadline for their striking employees to return to their jobs — or the company would liquidate, resulting in a loss of 18,000 jobs. “We simply do not have the financial resources to survive an ongoing national strike,” the company’s CEO, Gregory F. Rayburn, said Wednesday. The company won’t make a final decision until Friday, but now seems like a good time to stock up on some HoHos. (photo by Christian Cable/Flickr)

Six reasons you should never eat Papa John’s pizza
1) The pizza is terrible. 2) The guy above wants to raise prices and cut worker hours as a result of Obamacare. 3) They mass-text-spammed people in the middle of the night, leading to a $250 million class-action lawsuit. 4) “Papa John” Schnatter owns this house. 5) They don’t have lava cakes. 6) Namesake competitor Jimmy John’s is bringing back sprouts soon, and they deliver, too. (EDIT: Though, as it turns out, #2 applies to Jimmy John as well.)
