Think Pink & Chew for the Cause!

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and many of our favorite food companies are embracing the cause...

Yoplait Save Lids to Save Lives - This ubiquitous program has expanded to include many more General Mills brands! Click here to see the participating products list, and then start collecting those lids -- send 'em in, or redeem codes online. For every lid, General Mills will donate 10 cents to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, up to $2,500,000! We plan to lick many lids as part of our contribution...

Healthy Ones Lunchmeat - For every tub of lunchmeat or pound of deli meat sold this month, Healthy Ones will donate 5 cents to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, up to $50,000. Just another reason to love HO's tasty turkey slices!

Caribou Coffee - The coffee chain is selling its Amy's Blend coffee, tea, and other products as a tribute to roastmaster Amy Erickson, and 10 percent of the sales will go to the nonprofit organization CancerCare. The products are available in stores and online through November 7th. Plus, for every "Like" that Caribou's Facebook page receives, the coffee co. will donate an additional dollar. We'll raise a mug to that!

The Mushroom Council - The mushroom industry has teamed up with City of Hope to support breast cancer research by selling mushrooms in pink containers this month and donating $50,000 to the organization! Click here for OODLES of mushroom recipes.

Way to go, food-industry peeps!!!

The Buzz...

When it comes to popular fall ingredients, pumpkin is pretty much homecoming queen. Good thing pumpkins will reportedly be readily available this season (unlike past years) and less than half the price they were last fall! We hear the availability will trickle down to our beloved canned pure pumpkin from Libby's... Yes! ***Emmys, schmemmys... Results of the Zagat 2012 Fast-Food Survey are here, ranking restaurants based on popularity, food, décor, and more! Top overall pick in the mega-chain category went to Wendy's, followed by Subway and Pizza Hut. In-N-Out Burger snagged the top slot in the large-chain sector. In the full-service category, Cheddar's was number one overall, and Caribou Coffee landed on top of the quick refreshment list. Click for more winners! ***Does size really matter? It does when it's printed on a food label! In one study, subjects were given cookies labeled either "medium" or "large" -- but all the cookies were the same size. And, as you may have guessed, people ate more of them when they were labeled "medium." Think before you chew... ***Lastly, a little something for HGers of the legal drinking age... Check out Three Olives Loopy Vodka! Judging by its tropical fruity flavor and the colorful O's on the bottle, we're pretty sure it's meant to taste like a certain b-fast cereal that rhymes with Cute Bloops. We hope a spirit inspired by Cinnamon Toast Crunch is next... And that's all we've got. HG out!
