Popcorn, the snack that saved the movies
CBS News
The biggest moneymaker at movie theaters last year wasn't from a comic book or Steven Spielberg, and didn't involve werewolves or vampires. Just like every year, the number one blockbuster was the concession stand and its most bankable star, popcorn. Each year Americans eat on average about 13 gallons of the stuff - a lot of it at the movies. The bag you pay $5 for only costs the theatre about 50 cents.

The extraordinary science of addictive junk food
The New York Times
On the evening of April 8, 1999, a long line of Town Cars and taxis pulled up to the Minneapolis headquarters of Pillsbury and discharged 11 men who controlled America's largest food companies. Nestlé was in attendance, as were Kraft and Nabisco, General Mills and Procter & Gamble, Coca-Cola and Mars. Rivals any other day, the CEO's and company presidents had come together for a rare, private meeting. On the agenda was one item: the emerging obesity epidemic and how to deal with it. While the atmosphere was cordial, the men assembled were hardly friends. Their stature was defined by their skill in fighting one another for what they called "stomach share" — the amount of digestive space that any one company's brand can grab from the competition.

What crust! Bloomberg ban means no 2-liter soda delivered on pizza night
Fox News
That ban on big sodas being pushed by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is about to spoil family pizza night. The ban on sodas over 16 ounces takes effect on March 12, and the New York Post reports it has some previously uncontemplated effects. For instance, ordering a 2-liter bottle of Coke, Pepsi, Sprite or whatever the family desires with a pizza delivery won't be allowed. Even pitchers of soda at children's birthday parties are going to be a no-no under Bloomberg's far-reaching ban, according to the paper.

Designing the packaging-free future
Wired via Yahoo News
Every year, Americans generate a lot of solid waste. In 2010, 250 million tons, according to the EPA. A full 30 percent of that (about 76 million tons) comes from packaging — it's the biggest culprit. As awareness grows about this problem, many companies and designers are looking for solutions to green their packaging by either making it more recyclable, or reducing the amount.
