Do they have all their soda on tap at every location?
Raspberry gianduja with a chocolate swirl and salted candied hazelnuts

All right, so, don't tell anyone I told you, but I work for a marketing company that works with General Mills, and I have therefore been to the General Mills archives, where they have glass cases full of all the old cereal boxes - and all of the prizes, either that came in the box or that you could send in for. I swear to god that I almost passed out from the concentrated wave of nostalgia when I walked into that place.
They had those Trix cereal bowls you could order with your named engraved - I still have mine!
Also, I learned that Cheerios were originally called Cheerioats. Which I did not know.
It was a magical place, Leandra. I thought of you.
Man, can I just say that in the variety pack, they were totally the one everyone fought over in my house? That and Cinnamon Toast Crunch - it was so tragic that you couldn't get both of those in a variety pack, in fact. Because sometimes, the world is a hard place to live in. We learned that lesson young.
Umami burger. Totally.
I only just saw this. Ice cream rivalry throwdown! But - you can totally get a split scoop at Izzy's, as well. Your move.
Two words: kitchen shears.
That's why Izzy's ice cream in Saint Paul is so brilliant. Yes, they give you free samples, but with every order you also get a mini "izzy scoop" of another flavor on top. It's a few bites' worth that lets you try a new flavor without committing. Brilliant.
I'm going to be a jerk and complain about the use of the word addicting. Addictive. Just...always better.
These sound awesome. Even more awesome? Add cheese!
First the New York Times, and now Kenji. The Midwest is not a barren wasteland strewn only with meat and butter. It's not very difficult to order and eat vegetarian and vegan in many places, nor are there strange looks or sighs when you ask what's in something. Also, "the Midwest" is a pretty big area that includes Chicago and the Twin Cities, so, really, there are some pretty top-notch restaurants around, as well as a wide selection of international cuisine.
I know, I know, I'm sensitive. Those of us from the Midwest start to get a little touchy after years of getting called flyover states.
On pasta, with spinach and pine nuts.
Ballpark the oven time for us?
Dan Dan Noodles are a definite winner, but the technique posts are also something I use all the time.
On the bread and butter with sprinkles topic, in Australia they call it "fairy bread." Which is clearly awesome.
@Kenji and Aya:
I disagree about Sweetangos only being sweet. They're distinctly tarter than Honeycrisps, at least here in Minnesota.
Excellent pseudo-academic satire. Highly amusing.
Italian peasant loaf!
"Brekkie"? Really, guys?
Malaysian fried chicken is the single best thing I have ever eaten. It probably helped that I'd just finished a nine mile hike, ridden an elephant down a mountain, and then rafted down a river, and that I was seven at the time. But nonetheless, it was singularly, perfectly delicious. My own personal Proustian madeleine.
Magner's only comes in bottles, doesn't it?
These, or at least my very similar recipe, are truly excellent with dried cranberries added.
