    Making Pie Out of Your Favorite French Fry Comments on Facebook

    Burgers get so much attention that the french fries served alongside them seem to get a cursory mention at best. That's a shame, because when cooked properly they are probably the most delicious way to eat a potato. When the insides are soft and pillowy, the outer crust has a little snap and the pla ...

    Sweet Ballz Brand Cake Balls Are a Real Thing

    I was sure it was a parody. A news release touting Sweet Ballz, a Dallas-based company specializing in marble-sized confections read like a Saturday Night Live sketch.

    US News Says Fast Food Is Good For You. Kinda.

    A news story on US News suggests that fast food could actually be good for your health, but before you run off to McDonald's and pound a double Filet-O-Fish with fries and a large Coke, super-sized, you should read the fine print.
