Man Awarded $2400 After Suing Pizza Hut For ‘Excessively Hard Croutons’

pizza-hut-croutons

Remember when that one woman was awarded $2.9 million after suing McDonald’s over their coffee being too hot? A suit decided against Pizza Hut last week joins the legacy.

A Roane County, Tennessee judge awarded Everett Chatman $2,400, interest and court costs last Friday for the damages in his case against Pizza Hut, which claimed that the pizza restaurant served too-crunchy croutons.

Chatman sued the pizza chain after breaking his partial denture trying to bite into “excessively hard croutons” the restaurant had “negligently” served to him.

“We tried to work it out with their insurance company, but they never wanted to talk,” his attorney, Mark Foster, told Roane County News. “So we went ahead and filed.”

When Foster was asked whether his client was happy with the case’s outcome, Foster said, “I think so.”

The 13 Best Things About Eating Clam Chowder

breadbowl

It’s National New England Clam Chowder Day, folks, which means if you live anywhere with normal. January. weather, it’s about time you changed your dinner plans. Unless you were planning on eating clam chowder to begin with, in which case, you probably already know what’s up.

For everyone else though, here’s some of the best parts about eating the creamiest, feel-good-iest, tragically-most-underappreciated-iest cold weather food, ever.

1. Not getting it served in a ceramic bowl:

Ceramic bowls are sad and cold and don’t do their due duty of serving as a dish and well, a dish, all at the same time.

Sad:

Eat Your Salad Out of a Crouton Cone, Because This is America

Call it fate, call it genius, call it necessity, or just call it American — we can now eat a salad with one hand with a Crouton Cone Cobb Salad.

The idea for the crouton cone is the bastard child-idea of our foodie Rain Man friend Nick, who you may or may not know for the creation of the Tacone a few months back (yes, that’s a corn waffle cone that holds all the necessary taco ingredients). This time around, Nick has created a crouton cone made by made by combining finely ground croutons, egg, and some olive oil, rolled into a ball and mashed down in a waffle cone maker. Following that process, the cone gets the oven treatment at 400° until crispy — and then he dumps his Cobb Salad mixture into the opening for easy transportability: lettuce, chicken, bacon, avocado, tomato, diced hard-boiled eggs, blue cheese, and a vinaigrette dressing.

Here’s what eating your salad out of a cone looks like:

Bacon Croutons

As long as there’s lettuce present, it’s still a salad. Never mind that you have bacon bits, pieces of ham and now, bacon croutons up in the mix. From the same makers that brought you Bacon Salt comes croutons flavored with the essence of bacon. As with its salty cousin, these croutons are still completely kosher and completely vegetarian-safe. No vegetarians were harmed in the making of this product (physically). ($18.88 [6-pack] @ Amazon)
