What food have you heard too much about today? I'll answer that for you: avocado toast! The breakfast food made famous by Australians and Instagram is everywhere—Extra Crispy included.
Avocados are getting all sorts of dangerous in the weirdest ways. Earlier this week, a woman allegedly found a bullet inside her avocado (which...how?!). And now, a jaw is broken because of the stone fruit.
I stumbled into the avocado latte frenzy on Sunday evening, and my night was derailed. Post after post deemed the drink the most hipster thing to ever come out of a third-wave coffee shop.
The world's avocado supply has been spread super thin lately—and prices are soaring as a result. As more people are drawn to avocados for their flavor and health benefits, consumption of the popular superfruit has spiked in the US: Americans consumed 6.5 pounds per-capita in 2015, up from 3.5 pounds in 2006.
