 by J. Lee Horrors of Animal Farming – The Poultry Industry This story exposes the horrors on poultry farms. Writing it was heartbreaking, but it is a story that needs to be told. Future stories will disclose abuses in other animal farming industries. Animal farming often exploits animals in an inhumane and overcrowded environment. The sad fact is unnecessary suffering occurs when profits are put above humane treatment of living beings. Before you buy poultry find out if the animal was acquired from an animal farm that have been cited for animal…

Breakfast Deal at Krystal

by Michael Murillo Krystal, like most fast food restaurants, has a morning menu. But you only have a week left to catch a great deal on a sizeable breakfast item. Their 3 Egg Breakfast starts with (of course) three eggs. Then they add grits, sausage and toast for a meal that’s more like breakfast at a sit-down establishment than a grab-and-go sandwich or bagel. Substitutions are fine, too. The eggs are made to order, you can replace grits with Kryspers (hash brown sticks for those not familiar with their specific…

Arby’s Knows…Pizza?

By Michael Murillo Arby’s and pizza go together like peanut butter and beer, or milk and Merlot. You might like them fine on their own, but together? Sounds a little weird. But fear not: Arby’s new Pizza Slider (a limited-time addition to their growing slider menu) is Arby’s through and through. Sure, it includes pizza ingredients like pepperoni, cheese and marinara sauce. But in typical Arby’s fashion, they’ve added extra meat (this time it’s Genoa salami) and thrown it all together between two buns. So it’s the Arby’s formula of…

Go Green With Wendy’s Summer Salad

By Michael Murillo Summertime means salad — at Wendy’s, anyway. They normally roll out a new salad to kick off the hottest season of the year. And in 2017, they’re kicking things up a notch with a new product where even the name is a bit of a mouthful. Introducing the Strawberry Mango Chicken Salad. Obviously, that means strawberry slices, mango, lettuce and all white meat grilled chicken. But they’re also adding in a bit of feta cheese, sunflower seeds and a vinaigrette (this one is Honey Citrus). The ingredients…

Time To Give People Better Food Ordering Options At The Ball Game Or Rock Concert

by Jim Morris III Wouldn’t it be great if after we spent an arm and a leg to go to sporting event or live show… as opposed to watching on the TV – we could cut back on making trips to the food court?  Let’s face it, when we plunk down the mad duckets for stadium seats, we’d rather not miss anything if we can help it – right?  What if someone yaks a homer in the stands or the defense picks six and takes it to the house? Let’s rethink…

Get Naked With This New Taco Bell Item

By Michael Murillo Taco Bell wants you to get naked. Get their Naked Chicken Chips, that is. They’re not really chips, and they’re only “naked” in that they’re served by themselves. So we’re talking about chip-shaped grabbable chicken pieces. Sure, you could call them chicken nuggets shaped into a Taco Bell aesthetic. But where’s the fun in that? Besides, this carries the “naked” theme introduced with their Naked Chicken Chalupa a while back. So Naked Chicken Chips kind of makes sense. They also come with Nacho Cheese dipping sauce. Chips and dip,…
