CELEBRATE THE REUNION

MIKE AND IKE® are back together with a cool new look and enhanced flavors.

 



Where people around the world eat the most sugar and fat
The Washington Post
We all know Americans love their sugar. But data from market research firm Euromonitor suggest that the love may border on lunacy, at least compared with the rest of the world. Here in the United States, the average person consumes more than 126 grams of sugar per day, which is slightly more than three 12-ounce cans of Coca-Cola. That's more than twice the average sugar intake of all 54 countries observed by Euromonitor. It's also more than twice what the World Health Organization recommends for daily intake, which is roughly 50 grams of sugar for someone of normal weight.

Business Recorder
Raw sugar futures rebounded recently from near one-month lows set in the prior session, buoyed by a broad-based rally in commodity markets. Cocoa futures also rose after slumping to the lowest level in more than a year recently, although arabica coffee continued to be weighed down by an improving outlook in Brazil where crops have benefited from much-needed rains.

Thanks to Oreos, red velvet isn't just for cupcakes anymore
The Washington Post
Columnist John Kelly writes, "We have entered the era of unlimited "limited editions." A few years ago, it was the word 'luxury.' Every condo complex or apartment building going up around Washington was labeled 'luxury,' which, as far as I could tell, meant it had granite countertops. Today, it's 'limited edition' that's everywhere."
