Starbucks to Introduce Smoothies

As a part of an unfortunately sluggish U.S. economy, companies everywhere are looking for things to jump start their brands. Even the all-mighty Starbucks has been looking to up the ante as competitors such as Dunkin’ Donuts and McDonald’s have been edging their way quite successfully into the finer drink market. In an attempt to further revitalize their offerings, the company will be introducing fruit based, high protein, low-calorie smoothie drinks to their menus in the next few weeks. (Thx. MarketWatch)

Harbor House Café

After a long night of debauchery, I looked to foodbeast virgins Marc (MK) and Derek (DJDG), and we racked our brains for something in the near proximity that would still be open at the lonely hour of 2:00 a.m. in the morning.

IT'SUGAR

Today a few of us spent some time out in Los Angeles, specifically speaking Universal City. This place is truly a boiling pot of nostalgia for any young adult who grew up in or around the LA/Hollywood area. This quick little day trip will definitely spew over into a few different articles, but the first of which is regarding a crazy candy shop located on Universal Studio’s “City Walk”, a relatively new outdoor shopping mall. I was so tempted to title this article “Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory?”, but in the sheer childish hope I may one day visit that factory, I decided to describe this eatery by its human name, IT’SUGAR. Enjoy our quick little escapade:

Happy Birthday Big Mac!

This iconic burger is turning 40 this year. Happy Birthday! “Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.” You know how it goes. But did you know that 550 millions Big Macs are consumed in the United States annually? And that a Wisconsin man has eaten over 20,000 Big Macs since 1972. Get this…he’s actually still alive! Check out this fun birthday tribute to the Mac, complete with history of the burger and the story behind that catchy jingle.
