Dunkin’ Donuts Applies For Bagel Holes ‘Bunchkins’ Trademark


Carbophiles, rejoice. It’s almost 2013 and no one cares about Atkins anymore.

And to celebrate this new-found freedom (or maybe just the 40th birthday of their Munchkins–congrats, guys! You don’t look a day over 20), Dunkin’ Donuts is bringing us the Bunchkin. Or they’re trying to.


UK Women Consider Diet more than Sex

There are two primal forces of nature that drive a twenty-something college student such as yours truly in this day and age: eating and, for a lack of a better term, shagging (euro-slang is totally appropriate here, as you’ll read on). It’s difficult for me to really qualify and compare the two, but it would seem it wasn’t impossible for a thousand plus women to do so in the UK.

A recent Atkins survey of roughly 1,300 dieting women in the UK found that over a third (37.5%) admitted to thinking about their food and diet more than their partner and over half (54%) said they think more about food than sex. An astonishing one-in-ten women surveyed stated that they would feel more guilty about straying from their diet than being unfaithful to their significant other!

The survey also examined some of the motivations women had for beginning a diet regiment which was predominantly due to the pursuit of the perfect beach body while one in seven of the women surveyed said it was because of cruel comments made about their weight.

Now if Atkins could do a survey in the US to see if the same trend is as rampant across the pond…

Bacon Stuffed Avocado

This dish gets straight to the point: Bacon Stuffed Avocado! No bread, no pasta, no carbs, perfect dish for all you Atkins lovers. It is what you see, an avocado halved and filled with crunchy bits of bacon. The killer part is definitely the sauce, made from butter, brown sugar, garlic and soy sauce. I would take this dish over a bowl of greens any day! (Thx HowSweatEats)
