Yup, peanut butter for dogs is a thing. Dogsbutter a specialized pet treat formulated for dogs. And actually, Dogbutter has been around a while. Note that it was subject to last year’s (2012) peanut butter recall. So, if you have been in the know about this doggie treat for a while, don’t pull any out from the back of the cupboard. And please, keep it away from the jelly.
The company, Dog For Dog actually has a whole bunch of products, including the Dogsbar as well as other varieties of Dogsbutter.

Mmmm… Back to school. It sounds delicious; at least it does to parents and marketers everywhere. Hurried and harried parents not only like to see their kids off to school for some free babysitting, but they like to do so with the minimum amount of hassle. Making time-friendly recipes like the one below help:
1/3 cup red or green grapes
1/2 ounce Cabot Mild Cheddar or Monterey Jack, cubed
Heaping tablespoon roasted almonds
1. Combine in small bowl.
That would be for something called a Munch Bowl. Keep reading to see some others in the form of a press release from Cabot. (Which are juuuuust a little more involved.)

Corn syrup often gets overlooked in the pantry. Although Karo, the corn syrup people, have issued a press release containing sweet recipes, they seemed to have missed a good opportunity. Not only are the associated photos reminiscent of faded 70s cookbooks, but they are small and not at all appetizing. (Clicking on photo will not enlarge.)
Press release follows. With bonus chocolate ice cream recipe (and photo). There would be a link to their website, but they seemed to have missed that one too. Ouch. Enjoy… assuming you remember what Karo corn syrup looks like.

Brighten up, people! If you don’t, you will receive free pudding. Oh wait, maybe that’s a reason to stay with the frowny face. In any event, Jell-O Pudding Face knows how you feel. The marketing campaign consists of a website that tracks the mood on Twitter. Too many frowny faces= free pudding! The innovative campaign also features a physical billboard in NYC. (FYI: it is above a retail space for lease, if you wish to work under Pudding Face.) Check out the source link for photos of the billboard, and keep the frowns coming!

What’s Cooking Uncle Sam? is an exhibit currently on display at the National Archives in DC. From farm to table (via the factory) the exhibit examines the government’s influence over what we eat. Click on through to see a photo of the obvious gourmand President Ford preparing his own breakfast at his home in Alexandria in 1975. Or just click the link above and check out the whole preview.
