  • Starbucks recently introduced a 31-ounce Trenta size for iced coffee. Not only is the mega-cup larger than the average human stomach, but you can fit a whole bottle of wine in there. (Eater)


  • There’s a big stink going on in Maine – and it’s all about whoopie pies. Some people want to make the whoopie pie the state’s official dessert. Others think it’s a bad idea to such a title to a dish whose main ingredient is lard, especially when obesity is prevalent throughout the state and country, and want the blueberry pie to reign. Oh, the things that divide our nation. (Boston Globe)


  • Flavor Flav is opening a fried chicken restaurant in Iowa. Ummm … yeah. (Eater)


  • Celebrity chef and author Jeff Henderson of Food Network‘s The Chef Jeff Project has written a “community cookbook” called America I Am: Pass It Down Cookbook that chronicles African-American history through cuisine. Excuse me while I add this book to my wish list. (NPR)
