Eatable News: The food stories we're devouring this week
At SheKnows Food, we spend a lot of time reading about — you guessed it — food (and drinks too!). And we’ve come across some stories that are too good to not share. Here are the food items from the week that you don’t want to miss.
1. Remember cheese toast?
Even if you haven't been to Sizzler in years, you likely still have dreams of their light and fluffy but perfectly crisp cheese toast. And on Sept. 15, you can revisit your old love. For free. That's right — Sizzler is celebrating National Cheese Toast Day by giving away free cheese toast from noon to 2 p.m, whether or not you decide to dine with them. Who needs salad when you can eat your weight in cheesy bread? — Foodbeast
2. There's a Campbell's Soup K-Cup now
We've officially reached peak laziness. You won't even have to open a can to eat soup anymore thanks to the Keurig and Campbell's Soup Co. partnership to create two varieties of K-Cup chicken noodle soup. The broth pod is accompanied by a packet, which means you will be required to open something, but it's not nearly as taxing as using a can opener. — Eater
3. Twinkies jump onto the pumpkin spice bandwagon
Hostess didn't want Twinkies to be left out of the pumpkin spice game, so they've stuffed everyone's favorite snack cake with a pumpkin spice creme filling. There's a catch, though: You can get these fall-flavored delights only at Kroger, and they are, of course, limited edition. — Delish
4. How to drink beer in public
We're obviously not saying you should, but if you wanted to drink beer in public, there will soon be a sneaky new way to do it thanks to a genius Kickstarter campaign. Lolo Lids has come up with the ultimate stealth beer koozie — a special lid that fits over a disposable coffee cup and that not only keeps your drink cold but that also provides the perfect disguise. — The Huffington Post
5. The ramen pizza video that's breaking the Internet
Ramen pizza isn't necessarily a new thing, but at 4 million views and counting, this TabiEats video sure got people's attention this week on Facebook. And what's not to love? Ramen is great. Pizza is great. It only stands to reason that the two combined are even greater. Plus, you don't have to make pizza dough, which is always a win. — Tastemade/Facebook
