I've seen some pretty wacky food concoctions at carnivals and such but in the spirit of making fast food even faster and more convenient this is pretty innovative. A pizza cone?! These guys have a foundation in Italian food and a respect for innovation. It seems also they are claiming fresh ingredients and homemade dough made on the premises. Whats most mind boggling to me is that they haven't opened one in NY yet?! From Austria to Malaysia and the two proud American cities of Kansas and Missouri.
Serious Eats pizza blogger did some full coverage of the experience.

As we're all feeling bloated and overweight this holiday season, its refreshing to know this great culture of ours is making strides to keep us fit and in shape. NOT!! Just another example of why we are the fattest country in the world. Check out BBQ's new Col-Pop, an All-in-One Chicken Nugget and Soda Cup.

I give major kudos to Burger King for their Whopper Virgins effort. A subliminal jab to McDonalds while embracing international culture. They set out to find people around the world who have never tasted a hamburger before and are absent from any form of media advertising. Not an easy job. This video documents the experience and I have to say it's honest and impressive. On the flip side it is pretty controversial that they are going into these obscure parts of the world and littering them with our processed unnatural dietary stables. And of course they could have edited the footage to only show the majority of the people who liked the Whopper. Hmm, I dunno, I might just get a Whopper next time I'm in a mall food court, or at a road trip rest stop.

This absolutely made my day. If my computer could record my reaction it would have said, her eyes lit up and her mouth dropped and then turned into a great big smile!

I wish I had my camera at work today. Seeing the snowfall from 30 stories up across the Brooklyn Bridge was absolutely breath taking! The snow actually falls up when you're that high! Okay maybe its the wind. When I got home I had to take some holiday shots of my neighborhood.

My latest article for eats.com is now published! Check it out:
Remember the days of being sent off to school with a Pop-Tart in one hand and a brown bag lunch in the other as you raced out the door to the bus-stop? It seems those childhood glory days may repeat themselves. No this is not an article about Pop-Tarts nor effective ways to get to the bus on time, rather: The Re-Invention of the Brown-Bag Lunch.
Also included a bit about the Peanut Butter and Jelly Co.
So what’s a person to do with news of this lunchtime break-though? Get a cool lunch box! Or if you refuse to accept the reality of the matter, check out a great lunchtime spot in
