Every Friday, we take a look at the week’s food news and serve up the most interesting morsels. From a live-stream of the ketchup and mustard station at the Republican National Convention to a new recycling initiative at Starbucks, here’s this week in food.


  • Would you eat a dented apple? Wal-Mart, America’s largest grocer, has begun selling “ugly” fruits and vegetables at a discount in its Florida stores in an attempt to address the issue of global food waste.


Recycled Coffee Cup
  • A coffee mega-giant is getting a little greener. Starbucks is testing 100% recyclable coffee cups at its UK locations. As Starbucks beverages come housed in “approximately 4 billion cups globally each year,” the success of that program could make a huge difference.


  • Life’s just better with a perfect cup of coffee, no matter where you are in the world. These are the best coffee shops for world travelers.


  • It’s summer, which means it’s time to fire up the grill. But what do you make for your vegetarian friends and relatives? Here’s a vegan sandwich leading the way in meat-free BBQ.
TexMex Food
  • What’s the difference between a puffy taco and a chalupa? In the heat of summer, there’s nothing quite like Southwestern food. Here’s a glossary of Tex-Mex terms to get you through the ordering process.


  • Even in a divisive political climate, you can always count on condiments to bring people together. During this week’s Republican National Convention, Stephen Colbert live-streamed two hours of peace and harmony over ketchup on the convention floor.
