Slush Puppies

Is there any place in Minneapolis or in driving distance of Minneapolis that still sells Slush Puppies. Not icee, not blended drinks, not mister misty, not slurpee, not gas station knock offs. I am looking for Slush Puppie brand slushies..

Same animal - different flavor

Hs anyone else been told that the same animal, say beef, can have multiple strengths in the "beef" flavor? I am not talking about dry aged or seaonings that you add, or cooking methods used, but the flavor of the cut and I understand that muscles will give different textures. A butcher was using it as a selling point telling a customer that the ribeye had twice the beef flavor of another cut. Can anyone explain how this can be?

Is that really local? [Moved from Midwest]

What would you do if you spotted a chef buying food at a restaurant supply place? The food that comes from those places is not local or organic and this chef has spent the past couple years pushing for all of us to support his place because it supports small farms. Should he have to tell the customers that night about the food not coming from small farms or even this state. I dont know if its really a big deal but would just like to know what people think.

Grass Fed Beef

So what happens when an "antibiotic free" cow gets sick? do they let it die, or give it medication and if so do they have to report that?

Grass Fed Beef

I hear alot about the "antibiotics" that are fed to cows, so my question is does anyone consume cheese from "antibiotic" cows and how do you know if a cow has had any "antibiotics"?, does the producer have to tell the butcher or the final consumer?

Grass Fed Beef

I see and hear people talking about grass fed beef and how much better it is than grain fed, and I am wondering could you really tell the difference?
