Lawsuit claims Burger King’s Impossible Whoppers are contaminated by meat

CNAP RESPONSE: Burger King’s claim that The Impossible Whopper is 100% Whopper and 0% beef is not true. It can’t be both. A 100% beef whopper is not 100% Impossible Whopper. A Whopper is defined as containing 100% animal product, namely beef. In addition, nobody calls a Whopper, a Whopper Sandwich. I’ve never heard it, except […]

Pennsylvania Dutchman Mushrooms

Well. I always liked canned and/or jarred mushrooms. To me, they had more mushroom flavor than fresh cooked mushrooms. Just the mushrooms canned with salt brought out the flavor of the mushroom more than oils and garlic and herbs ever did.
