Eatable News: Free Krispy Kreme doughnuts on Halloween and more must-reads


SheKnows Editorial

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. Dress up for Halloween, get free Krispy Kreme

Free candy has always been the best part of Halloween, but adult trick-or-treaters are just weird. Instead of freaking out your neighbors with your Sexy Pizza Rat costume, why not head to Krispy Kreme for a free doughnut instead? The deal is valid on Oct. 31 until supplies last, and no purchase is necessary — just show up in your finest Halloween attire. — Foodbeast

2. To heck with the rabbit — your pet could be a Trix cereal box star

General Mills is removing artificial flavors and colors from Trix cereal, and in celebration, it figured it might as well get rid of its cartoon rabbit mascot in favor of the real thing too. For the next three weeks, General Mills is hosting an open casting call for a real pet rabbit to be featured as the honorary Trix mascot on a limited run of cereal boxes in the winner’s hometown. Best of all, other pets are invited to apply, so long as they’re in a bunny costume (now if only I could find a pair of bunny ears that fit my goldfish, Marvin…). Upload your pet picture here, and who knows? Maybe they’ll get a chance to be a star. — General Mills

3. Yelp is not suing South Park (though it totally sounds like something they would do)

In yet another case of satire going completely over our heads, a parody article on had everyone thinking Yelp was going to sue South Park to the tune of $10 million after a recent episode lampooned users of the restaurant review site. But the “news” spread like wildfire — maybe because, well, it really seemed like something Yelp would do (I mean, the South Park episode was pretty on point). To everyone’s surprise, Yelp then actually responded to the satirical article’s viral status with a good-humored response and told Eater, “We have no interest in legal action against the fantastic team that makes the South Park magic happen.” — Eater

4. Subway’s Sandwich Artists will be forced to measure your sub. Yes, really

We knew that somehow the people who complained about Subway’s sandwiches being slightly shorter than the stated 12 or 6 inches were going to make our lives more difficult, and we were right. After a series of lawsuits over its 11-inch “footlong” subs, Subway will now require employees to measure all of their bread to make sure it’s really 6 or 12 inches long. Because having to tell the person making your sandwich every single ingredient you want (even though the ingredients are listed on the menu board) doesn’t already take enough time. We would gladly forgo the last inch of flavorless sub bread if it meant getting out of the store before our clothes were permanently tainted by that unique “Subway smell” for the rest of the day. But hey, at least we’re not getting lied to by those corporate sub-heads anymore, right? — Delish

5. Enter the Wu-Tang Clan into the craft beer market

It’s the moment maybe, like, three of you have been waiting for: Wu-Tang Clan is finally getting its own craft beer. From Philadelphia craft beer makers Dock Street Brewery, the Dock Street Beer Ain’t Nothing to Funk With is a golden saison that was aged in red wine barrels while being serenaded by the Wu-Tang Clan’s music on repeat using special headphones that fit the barrels. The beer allegedly has a “new level of tart and funk,” along with a 6.7 percent ABV. If you live in Philadelphia, you’re in luck, because the brew will be available only at Dock Street’s brewpub in West Philly and to limited markets online. —
