Radio Nibbles: Unsettling Food News

Posted: July 20, 2017 at 8:25 am by , in Featured, Morning Magazine, Radio Nibbles

This week on Radio Nibbles, John Lehndorff catches us up on some disturbing food news.

He discusses a study that reported 7% of American adults believe that chocolate milk comes from chocolate cows. Microwaveable frozen molten lava ding dongs are coming to our grocery stores soon, and another study found that humans are gullible to how we name things. Things sell better with catchier names.

And the good news – Meat marinated in dark beer may result in fewer carcinogens when grilling.

All this, plus the best thing Sam Fuqua ate recently.
