Lucky Dip – Friday, July 15th, 2011

Okay, what kind of dirtbag steals a truck from a food bank? [Toronto Star]

Surprisingly, Toronto City Council voted in favour of keeping a local food procurement policy for city-run organizations like schools. Let’s hope the thinking is as logical with the rest of the issues they’ll be voting on – such as keeping community gardens. [PushFoodForward]

Wait now, you mean Cheesy Poofs didn’t already exist? Then what the hell are those scary orange powder-covered things? [Village Voice]

An iPhone case that can open a beer. Awesome! [DVice]

I am the girl of 100 lists… grocery lists that is, and weekly menus. Turns out, it’s a good way to cut down on food waste, if you stick to it. [Toronto Star: Moneyville]

“It’s not revolutionizing my industry until an iPhone shows up and actually steams my dumplings.” The love/hate relationship chefs and restaurateurs have with social media. [Wall Street Journal]

Can you get high on fat? Not like the funny cigarette, but it does leave you feeling good. [Toronto Star: HealthZone]

Ew, ew, ew!! Why you maybe don’t want to let your kids hang out at the playland at fast food places. [LA Times]

Chew slowly and carry a big fork – do big utensils make you eat less? Or is it just that the things are so unwieldy that people give up sooner? [Globe and Mail]

Some things aren’t actually better when you make them at home. Like lemonade. [Bon Appetit]

  1. Ew… I couldn’t make it all the way through the article about fast food playlands. Not quite food-related, I remember a friend telling me about working at the ikea ball-filled playroom and regularly having to shut down to clean up vomit. Gross!
