Comments Off on Taco Bell and Pizza Hut removing artificial ingredients, pledge to use real food

It’s hard to praise fast food companies for promising to use real black pepper instead of “black pepper flavor,” and yet, when so many artificial colors and flavorings have become ubiquitous in our food, it’s important to point out the effort. Yum! Brands , which owns both Taco Bell and Pizza Hut, announced this week that they will stop putting artificial ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, black pepper flavor, added trans fats and other things in the food they sell.

Comments Off on McDonald’s to Add Lab-Grown ‘Chicken’ McNuggets to its Menu

McDonald ‘s just announced it will be the first fast food restaurant in the United States to add lab-grown meat to its menu. Following the success of Sergey Brin’s lab-grown burger experiment in London last year, McDonald’s says they will ‘grow’ their own chicken McNuggets in special laboratories across New Jersey. The move is expected to reduce the number of real chickens needed to supply the company’s 35,000 outlets across the globe.

Google Purchases Dubai’s World of Islands to Reconfigure into Google Shaped Floating Cities

Comments Off on Google Purchases Dubai’s World of Islands to Reconfigure into Google Shaped Floating Cities

At the beginning of 2011, Dubai ‘s most notorious man-made islands, a.k.a. The World, made a splash with news that they were slowly but surely sinking into the sea . Now, in a bizarre twist of events that even had us surprised (and trust us, we thought we’d seen it all when it comes to The World), Google has announced that it purchased the troubled archipelago and will be reconfiguring it to form the shape of the Google logo. While we’ve seen the search engine giant dabble in everything from green energy to self-driving cars , this is the first we’ve heard of them making their way into island real estate. Once complete, the Google-shaped landmasses will be self-sustaining floating cities, and the company reports that it plans to retain a portion of the development for its own private use and sell the rest off to the highest bidders.

Enter the ‘ Scoffee ,’ a coffee cup made from cookies, white chocolate, a thin layer of sugar and “infused aromas” that is set to launch at KFC locations in the UK. It doesn’t sound like it’ll the healthiest thing in the world, but it does have a certain ring of “waste not, want not.” Read the rest of Scoffee: Edible cups mean you can have your coffee and eat it Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: coffee , edible coffee cup , edible packaging , fast food , food engineering , food waste , Kentucky Fried Chicken , kfc , robin collective , scoffee , seattles best , Waste
