Bits and pieces: Ronald McDonald, coffee and other food news from the web, 5.23.11

  • Is Ronald McDonald a nice ol’ clown representing a big company, or is he just an example of predatory marketing that encourages kids to eat unhealthy food? Some people thinks it’s time to retire Ronald, but McDonald’s has decided to stand by its man. (NPR)
  • Coffee (or nectar of the gods, as I like to call it) can actually make you healthier. Where’s my cup? (The Atlantic)
  • I’m all for taking risks with fashion, but I’m not sure about a pizza beret. (Best Week Ever)
  • A cat-food brand has created iPad games for cats. Let the cuteness commence. (Gizmodo)
  • Chefs Eric Ripert and Tom Colicchio made a cameo on HBO’s Treme last night. I don’t have the channel, but I hear the show is fantastic. (Eater)
