A weekly round up food and drink-related news stories:
2. It’s National Donut Day in the U.S.! Canadians can celebrate too – after all, with a Tim Horton’s outlet for every 12.5 Canadian citizens (that’s a rough estimate), we love our fried dough just as much as our neighbours to the south. (Huffington Post)
3. The Stanley Cup final is underway so one of the teams will soon be spending the summer with the Cup (Go Canucks!). There are many legendary stories about the Cup’s off-season adventures – check out some of the great Food and Drink Moments with the Stanley Cup. (The Daily Meal)
4. Food lovers on the internet were already scratching their heads about Donald Trump and Sarah Palin’s recent pizza lunch when Jon Stewart launched a funny tirade about it. (U.S. readers can watch it here.) (Chowhound, Comedy Central)
5. The food pyramid has been replaced with a simpler ‘plate icon’ to help people figure out how to eat properly. Unfortunately, french fries still don’t count as a vegetable. (Eatocracy)
Have a great weekend!
