When you find a spot that nails Chinese Soup Dumplings, sometimes it’s hard to think about anything else until you find some way to get your hands on some?

Seattle-based restaurant Xiao Chi Jie has just launched its first flagship item: frozen Xiao Long Bao (Chinese Soup Dumplings) that are available to be shipped nationwide. 

This marks the first time a restaurant-grade Chinese Soup Dumpling will be available for purchase and shipped to customers anywhere in the US.

Products include Pork Xiao Long Bao, Shrimp & Pork Xiao Long Bao, a bamboo steamer (with instructions), and a plethora of sauces. 

During the pandemic, many restaurants had to discover a way to pivot to stay afloat. Packaging up their famous soup dumplings became Xiao Chi Jie’s answer to bringing in more revenue.

Tim Hortons Celebrates Mother’s Day With Brilliant Donut Disguise Box

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, and for those scrambling to find something they think their moms would enjoy, look no further.

This year, Tim Hortons is offering up what we low-key believe is the most incredible gift for any mom whose love for donuts surpasses that of their children.

Upon first glance, it looks nothing more like a hefty hardbound book that would likely collect dust on a coffee table or sit untouched on a shelf for decades at a time. However, when you open it up, you’ll find six Tim Horton’s donuts inside.

The box will be available on May 8 and 9 when you purchase a six-pack of donuts at U.S. locations in Buffalo, Columbus, and Detroit metropolitan areas. All you have to do is ask for the Donut Disguise Box at the counter or drive-thru.
