In an era of increased climate change awareness, it’s clear that there’s not much of a future for the single-use plastic straw.

And while paper straws seem like an easy alternative, most people who’ve used one seem unconvinced of their ability to provide consistent, satisfying sips.
Green bean casserole: a Thanksgiving staple that's pleasingly retro, and often divisive. Love it or hate it, many of us will be pulling up to a table next week and either piling a serving of green bean casserole onto our plates or doing our best to ignore it entirely.
When it comes to winning food combos, fried chicken and biscuits are second only to a burger and fries.

We simply had no guidance on how to truly fuse the southern-fried ethos of KFC with the zest for life embodied by Taco Bell.
