Food News Round-Up: Cronut vs. Ramen Burger, Round Two

Simply Magic! You think the cronut is going to take the ramen burger lying down? Not so fast! Dominique Ansel is fighting back for the hottest meal in New York with his new dish, the Magical Souffle. It’s a New York food war, and only everyone who eats (and is willing to wait hours in line) wins. Rice-y Proposition: The FDA has issued a warning that found troubling levels of arsenic in rice and rice-based products. They say short-term exposure shouldn’t be a problem, but the impact of everyday rice eaters, including possible cancer issues, could potentially be serious. The agency says it is following up with more research. Fat Trade Agreement: Obesity rates are soaring around the world. Who’s the culprit? Well, American fast-food chains certainly aren’t helping. Breaking the Mold: Chobani has recalled several lines of its Greek yogurt cups, which consumers complained were “swelling and bloating” and turned out to contain mold and making people sick. So if you have a Chobani yogurt with the code 16-012 and an expiration date between Sept. 11 and Oct. 7, you’re probably going to have to go out for lunch today. Foodie Family: Man, was there anything edible those earls of Sandwich couldn’t do? A researcher has found what may be the first English recipes for a prototype of chocolate ice cream–more like an iced mocha–in the collections of an ancestor of the guy who gave us the sandwich.
