The 10 Unhealthiest Salads You Can Order

Yahoo.com is not exactly known for their insightful reporting.

New product, Cool Whip Frostings

Pedantic food shaming certainly influences my choices, said no one ever.

Declining quality at Costco?

We just finished blackberries and strawberries that were almost perfect (Kansas City). I just think your Costco sucks. Shop somewhere else.

When do you just toss it?

I would refuse to be guilted by myself or anyone else and throw it out. Nothing is gained by letting it sit in the freezer for 6 months and then pitching it anyway.

"We reserve the right to refuse...." Whole Foods

And cruelty-free?

"A problem occurred with this webpage so it was reloaded."

Mine only does it on Facebook and NEVER does it here. I don't think that DEFINITELY makes it a Facebook problem either. It will probably be fixed with the next OS update.

What is with the smell at Subway??

Why try to "actually choke it down" if you don't like cilantro?

Trader Joe's Employees Dish on Their Secretive Employer

It's frigging Yahoo, what did you expect.

KC ~ did all the posters move?

There's a very active Kansas City Eats Facebook group that usually has some good suggestions on places off the beaten path:

How do you feel about waiters clearing dirty dishes and then serving food without washing their hands in between?

There's more poop on your cell phone than on the servers' hands.

Your dirty little kitchen secret

Damn.

Tackling the Master Cleanse One Sip at a Time

Healthy people do not need any kind of "cleanse." Unhealthy people should avoid them entirely. This article is inappropriate for Chow.

Pimm's Cup

No, but seems like it ought to work. Did you happen to see this recipe for Prosecco Negronis? Another low alcohol idea. http://www.chow.com/recipes/31445-pro...

No more ramps (wild leeks) at Union Square Greenmarket

Eh, I made the same mistake with asparagus a few years ago. Got three little stalks this spring. :)

No more ramps (wild leeks) at Union Square Greenmarket

I doubt if you'll have any next year. It can take 18 months for the seeds to germinate and 5 to 7 years to get mature plants.

Sriracha: Is it a Hype?

It may be overhyped, but it's hype with some pretty strong legs on it. I can remember in 2007 or so Chowhound was suddenly full of endless discussions about how people were eating it. In terms of fads it's outlasted macarons, cupcakes, and cronuts and will probably still be around when everyone has forgotten abour ramen too. Of course there are better chili sauces but the red rooster plastic bottle is now available everywhere. The last time I had it it tasted sort of hot and not much else, I'm kind of over it.

Why do almost all chicken and turkey sausages have pork casings??

It is not difficult to find sausage without pork casings. The Halal store a mile away from here carries beef, chicken, and Italian sausage, and that's here in a flyover state.

Two BIG annoyances

I do not use AdBlock Pro and don't run across any ad issues of any kind, on a PC or a iPad or a Kindle Fire or an iPhone 5. I'm not directing this at the OP, but many of the problems here seem to be related to outdated and hijacked browsers and adware picked up somewhere else.

Percentage off sales vs actual sale price

Hmm, haven't noticed that trend in the middle third of the country. I've attached ad for Kansas City/Des Moines for this week.

Q & A Format -- Horrible

Asked and answered by community manager:
http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/1006561

"We're aware that not all members feel the Q&A format is useful, but we've found that it is actually helping some members who want a quick, simple answer rather than a more wide-ranging discussion. We hope that members will respect a user's choice in selecting the Q&A format going forward, and we feel that this type of feedback has been well covered here and in other threads, so we're going to lock this, and future threads, on this topic."
