Man Orders ISIS Cake From Wal-Mart

Retail mogul Wal-Mart has issued a public apology after a Louisiana man successfully ordered an ISIS cake. In the wake of the Charleston Church Shooting and the hype with the Confederate flag, Chuck Netzhammer attempted to order a Confederate flag themed cake with the words “heritage not hate.” However the Wal-Mart bakery where he placed his order denied his request. Due to their recently implemented ban of Confederate flag merchandise, the bakery was following the store protocol. Angered by the denial of his beloved Confederate flag themed cake,Netzhammer decided to test the waters.

 

A few days later, Netzhammer went back to the same Wal-Mart bakery and placed another order reports Brian Torchin. This time, it was not for a Confederate flag cake but for an ISIS cake. According to Netzhammer, he ordered the ISIS cake to test the limits of Wal-Mart. He submitted an image of the design and asked that the ISIS battle flag be the image on the cake. When Netzhammer actually picked up the cake he was furious. He posted a video on YouTube that describes the situation. In the video, Netzhammer says, “That’s an ISIS battle flag cake that anybody can go buy at Walmart, but you can’t buy a Confederate flag toy.”

 

Netzhammer questioned Wal-Mart, asking how they could make one cake but not the other. According to a spokesperson from Wal-Mart, the store associate designing the cake was unaware what the image actually meant.

Goodbye Healthy Donuts

There’s a lot of foods out there that a person can make moderately healthy with just a little bit of work, and a little bit of creative thinking. People have turned cauliflower into a form of bread. Others have turned zucchini into a form of pizza crust. It seems that there are numerous ways to get around the unhealthiness of an item, and shift it into a much healthier form. This is especially true of desserts. There are a lot of low fat and low calorie items such as ice cream, and cookies that people can purchase and actually enjoy. But, when it comes to eating one type of dessert, it seems that it’s almost meant to be bad for you.

I’m talking about donuts. Donuts are disgustingly good and come in a variety of flavors. There’s ones that are covered in chocolate, others that are stuffed with jelly, and lots that have sprinkles coating the top! They’re glazed, frosted, and overall pretty terrible for you. People don’t eat donuts for the health factor. One company apparently thought they did, and now they’re suffering.

According to GrubStreet, Holey Donuts has gone bankrupt. They were selling low fat low calorie donuts. But, by taking away all that stuff is it still a donut? More importantly is it still good? Apparently not. The business did not do well and it has shut its doors. To add insult to injury, the owners are facing lots of problems now. Folks at Skout reported to the Huffington Post that they signed a 10 year lease, and haven’t been able to pay rent. Well it looks like they learned their lesson when it comes to trying to turn a dessert food into something good for someone.

A Summer Treat

Anyone who has been to New York is fully aware of where to get the best food. Whether it’s pizza, pasta, or seafood. New Yorkers have tried out a variety of restaurants until they finally get it right! There are almost always discrepancies over what is actually the best. There is one thing that almost everyone in the SoHo area can agree on. That’s where to get the best cookie.

Maman’s is the creator of one of New Yorks top chocolate chip cookies. They are moist, they are delicious, and they have the finest quality chocolate chips in it. Alexei Beltyukov wondered what could possibly make them better? Stuffing them with ice cream! According to GrubStreet that’s exactly what is happening. It’s absolutely genius.

It’s summer, and it’s hot out there. As good as a cookie sounds at all times, it’s sometimes hard to eat a warm one in the heat. People want something cold and refreshing. That’s where this genius plan comes into play! They get their cookie, and they get premium ice cream as well. They’re only making 50 of these bad boys a day so people have to hurry out there, and get in line quickly. If they continue to be this popular, then the restaurant might take into consideration making more each day. Until then, it’s a struggle to get your hands on one of these delicious summer treats!

Kulfi Ice Cream Comes To NYC

A very new and unique form of ice cream that is popular in India is hitting the streets of New York City in its massive competition for the best ice cream around. Most shops and restaurants in New York City have been attempting to make themselves known for their frozen treats, and especially with summer already here it’s not hard to see why that would be the case. Summer is humid, hot, and just sticky so there is nothing better than a delicious ice cream.

Babu Ji grew up eating Kulfi, which is a very dense but amazing kind of ice cream that comes from his native India. He even brought back the molds from the country to make these treats which his mother and grandmother always used to have for him. It also takes nearly a whole day to prepare these ice cream treats because the milk process is hard, it has to be boiled and then brought to room temp and then refrigerated for almost 12 hours. Right now Babu Ji is only making one flavor that is kind of pistachio-like, but according to an article found on reddit and written by Grub Street he plans to make a chai one later with ginger, as well as incorporate local fruits into the deal as well. Gianfrancesco Genoso points out that it could be just what the great NYC needs this summer and for years to come too.

Any Chocolate is Good for Your Heart

It has been known for some time that flavanoids in dark chocolate are good for the heart, but it has recently been learned that milk chocolate is good for you too. University of Aberdeen experts have been studying more than 20,000 people. The age group chosen for the study are those in the middle-age group and the elderly. In comparing people who ate no chocolate and those who ate any chocolate, including milk chocolate, those who ate chocolate had 23 percent reduced risk of heart attack and stroke.

The quality of chocolate plays a big role in how healthy it is. Twitter.com caught word from Beneful that if you are consuming a caramel, salted, sugary chocolate bar, for example, the sugar and other ingredients may negate the good quality of chocolate. Try to choose chocolate that has been minimally processed. Cocoa that has been alkalized to reduce acidity has fewer flavanoids than cocoa that has not been. The fat in chocolate is as healthy as olive oil and has not been found to increase cholesterol.

It is important to remember to eat other healthy foods such as apples, cranberries, tea and onions as these also contain healthy flavanoids. Eating anything in excess can lead to health problems so to keep your heart at its healthiest, eat well, the Cleveland Clinic advises.

Why You Should Eat More Chocolate

Everyone would love and excuse to eat more chocolate. And now, thanks to this article, you have one! Not only can you eat more chocolate, but you should. Studies have found that increasing your chocolate intake to a moderate amount can provide many health benefits.

The largest benefit of eating chocolate is the benefit to your heart. Those that consume up to one chocolate bar daily were at an eleven percent lesser risk of having a heat attack, the study showed.

Another major benefit to eating chocolate is a decreased risk of a stroke stated UOL.com. The same study looked at thousands of elderly people– both those who did, and did not, consumer chocolate. It found that those that ate approximately one bar of chocolate per day also had a twenty-three percent lower risk of having a stroke.

Scientists do not know, for sure, that the chocolate itself is what provides the health benefits. Those that consumed more chocolate tended to be younger, have a lower Body Mass Index (BMI), a smaller weight to hip ratio and commit to more vigorious activity.

The study questioned if chocolate provided major health benefits or if those who consumed chocolate were happier and more likely to perform physical activity that would keep them healthy. Avid chocolate lovers would love to believe that it’s the chocolate itself that is keeping them healthy but the happiness that their beloved chocolate brings them just might be what’s causing all of the health benefits.

If nuts can really keep you from getting many different kinds of diseases, as the study suggests, then it will be worth eating them in the end. You’ll be glad that you have have started to eat them.

Donut Sandwich

National doughnut day has come and gone, but the memories and impressions that is has left behind will surely stick around for a while. After all, it seems that typical doughnut flavors may soon becoming a thing of the past. Doughnut shops all over the world would offer an array of chocolate, vanilla, sprinkles, custard filled, you name it! There were always so many options…usually those options just revolved around what type of frosting or sprinkle would grace your donuts.

Well, now it seems the options are getting overwhelming and strange. According to Eater, one restaurant created quite the concoction that hopefully will never be seen again. Philadelphia’s Mac Mart food truck decided to put bacon, and mac and cheese between two donuts! It seems like one of those foods that are so bizarre, you just have to try it. And by try it – hopefully only once before it gets grossly overwhelming. National doughnut day is a good day to get creative chef Steve Murray adds, but other than that I cannot see a mac and cheese bacon doughnut selling. The calories in that thing alone are probably enough to put you over the limit for the day.

So, this doughnut might have been a rare treat for those who love mac and cheese and bacon. For the rest of the people, however, in the world it was probably something that was to be avoided. A bite of one probably wouldn’t kill you though.
