Restaurant Making GIANT Heart Shaped Chicken Nugget
The Nottingham Post claims the Rub Smokehouse in Nottinghamm England is selling a giant heart-shaped chicken nugget for Valentine’s Day. The nugget is the size of 85 standard nuggets put together. It’s larger than a person’s head. The restaurant is taking reservations for Valentine’s Day and says seats are going fast because chicken lovers want to try the 3.5-pound nugget.
New “Doritos For Women” Will Be Less Crunchy and Cheesy . . . And Everyone’s Mocking the Idea
You didn’t know, Doritos is owned by PepsiCo. And the CEO is a woman named Indra Nooyi. But even though she’s a lady, apparently she hasn’t heard that stuff like this REALLY doesn’t fly these days.
She was just interviewed on a podcast and she revealed that there are plans for a new line of Doritos FOR WOMEN. And basically, they’re less crunchy, they’ve got less cheese powder, and they come in bags that will easily fit into a purse.
Quote, “[Women] don’t like to crunch too loudly in public. And they don’t lick their fingers generously and they don’t like to pour the little broken pieces into their mouth . . . but women love to carry a snack in their purse.”
The reaction on Twitter has been about as sarcastic as you’d expect. One person wrote, quote, “Has anyone at Doritos ever met a lady?” . . . and another person wrote, quote, “Doritos, we’ve been through enough this year.”
But if you’re looking forward to small bags of modified Doritos that you can eat demurely, unfortunately, we don’t know when they might come out.
Just Using the Word “Snack” Can Make You Gain Weight
When we talk about weight gain, we’re usually worried about what goes IN your mouth, not the words that come out of it . . .
But according to a recent study in the U.K., just using the word “snack” might make you eat more than if you called it a small meal instead.
Two groups of women were given the same amount of pasta. One group ate it while sitting at a table. So it was more like a meal.
The other group was told they were eating a, quote, “snack,” and had to eat out of a plastic bowl while standing up. So it was the same amount of food, but felt more like a snack.
Then later on, the researchers put some sweets out, and let them eat as much as they wanted. And the “snack” eaters consumed TWICE as many sweets.
In other words, just calling it a snack instead of a meal made them feel like they hadn’t eaten very much. So they thought they could overindulge on dessert.
