Random Food Report: The Emerging Poop Sector

1. McDonald's Is Gonna Regret This.


2. Easy Being Cheesy After All.

"Lay's has announced the winner of its "Do Us A Flavor" contest, which pitted three original flavors - cheesy garlic bread, sriracha and chicken and waffles - against one another for the right to join the company's permanent snack-chip lineup. Cheesy garlic bread, created by Wisconsin native Karen Weber-Mendham, beat them all," Culture Map Dallas notes.

"For her efforts, Weber-Mendham will receive $1 million or 1 percent of the chip's sales in 2013, depending on which is higher. But do not cry for the runner-ups; they aren't going home empty-handed.

"Sriracha creator Tyler Raineri of Illinois and chicken-and-waffle mastermind Christina Abu-Judom of Arizona will both win a cool $50,000. Their chips will make a limited run this summer."


Weber-Mendham describes herself as a youth librarian superhero, among other things. She likes margaritas and sarcasm.


Tyler Raineri is a junior at Illinois State who hails from Lake Zurich.


We don't really care about the Arizonan.

3. Deep Inside Taco Bell's Doritos Locos Taco.

"From handshake deals to experiments at Home Depot, the history of Taco Bell's disruptive faux cheese-dusted taco."

4. Angelo's Chicago Taste in O'Fallon, Missouri.


5. Domino's Webcam: Watch Your Pizza Get Made.


6. Cheating Spouses Choose The Cheesecake Factory.

7. Man Has Eaten At 6,297 Chinese Restaurants In The U.S. And Canada.

8. Obesity Caused By Chicken Dishes And Grains, Says Coca-Cola.

9. The Most Expensive Coffee In The World Comes From Civet Poo.
