The American Family Association is now gunning for Campbell Soup due to their sponsorship of Philadelphia’s Equality Forum, which takes place this weekend.

Nutella Loses “Healthy” Lawsuit

Slimy gelatinous not-chocolate muck Nutella has lost the class-action lawsuit filed against it for claiming it was a healthy food item.

There’s A Mayonnaise Store In Brooklyn

It just opened and seriously, that’s all they sell. A store selling only artisanal flavored mayonnaise opened on Sunday in the Prospect Heights section of Brooklyn, adding another notch to the borough’s bedpost of pretentiousness. It’s called Empire Mayonnaise, it’s not a joke (in fact, we knew it was coming), and inside you’ll find flavored mayos like White Truffle, Black …

CA Considers Anti-Food Truck Bill

The California Assembly is considering a bill that would ban food trucks from parking within 1500 feet of a public school. Opponents argue that such a quarter-mile rule would effectively ban the trucks from densely-populated cities like San Francisco.

Thanks to the economy, New York City has seen a spate of dollar-per-slice pizza joints spring up. This one opened last summer on the Upper East Side. Plain cheese is 99 cents. Anything fancier is two or three bucks. I had one plain, purely for the bloggerly aspect. Not bad at all. Reviews on Yelp are pretty good too.

Macarons: Manhattan’s Cupcake 2.0

This morning I wandered over to Ladurée, the latest Manhattan rage where New Yorkers are at this moment lined up down the block on a corner of Madison Avenue also anchored by Tom Ford, Juicy Couture, and Prada.
