Welcome to Week 9 of 2019! Chef Works® Weekly Bites is where we take a dive into the notable and fun food stories of the week.
First up is guess the quote: “Beware the hobby that eats.” (Do you know who said it? Answer at the bottom).
As far as branding goes, it’s a rough time to be Corona beer. It seems that the name is just too close to the COVID-19 coronavirus. And that’s having an impact on American perception.
Here’s a blurb from CNN:
5W Public Relations said that 38% of Americans wouldn’t buy Corona “under any circumstances” because of the outbreak, and another 14% said they wouldn’t order a Corona in public. The survey encompasses polling from 737 beer drinkers in the United States.
- An editor at Eater makes the case for why we should eliminate the tipped minimum wage. Check it out here.
- A candlelight vigil was held for – wait for it – a Taco Bell in Pennsylvania. Here’s the report from Food & Wine.
- Wendy’s has officially launched itself into the fast-food breakfast space. What’s on the menu, and is it up to snuff? Today has the rundown .
Anyone else like to do breakfast for dinner? The Chef Works® blog is a big fan of cooking up pancakes after dark for the family.
But in the breakfast mashup we never knew we needed, Cap’n Crunch and Aunt Jemima are teaming up on a syrup to go with its Berrytastic Pancake Mix. Delish has the info here. It’s certainly sweet enough for dessert – regardless of when you do your breakfast.
