Today's first course?
 
Texas has an exclusive McDonald’s burger on its menu: the Lone Star Stack. It’s made with two all-beef patties, applewood-smoked bacon, American and white Cheddar cheese, a sweet onion barbecue sauce, pickles, and grilled onions, all between two slices of Texas toast. The burger won out over more than 25,000 entries in a crowd-sourced contest. he Lone Star Stack is available through August 28, 2016 at participating Texas locations. Prices vary by location.
 
A German watchdog agency, Foodwatch, has determined that Kinder chocolate bars — made by the Italian confectionary company Ferrero, and not to be confused with the American-made KIND snack and granola bars — are made with carcinogenic ingredients. The watchdog group found high levels of mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbons in several Kinder products from Ferrero, sold in Aldi, a German supermarket chain. Since the report came out there have been calls for the recall of the popular candy bars. The group claims that they told the candy manufacturers about the high levels and asked them to recall the candy, but they refused. The Daily Meal has contacted Ferrero for more information. 
 
The new Pokemon Go cell phone game debuted just a couple days ago, and people are obsessed with it, but one Dairy Queen allegedly got so annoyed with the Pokemon-related foot traffic that it posted a sign barring non-paying customers from coming in to catch Pokemon in the store. Some businesses have embraced the game. Many restaurants and coffee shops have PokeStops in them, so more potential customers might come through playing the game. Not everyone is loving the Pokemon Go players coming through the doors, though, and one Reddit user posted a photo allegedly from a local Dairy Queen, which did not appear to want any more Pokemon hunters coming inside without buying anything. 
 
That’s today’s Daily Dish, thanks for watching. Stop by tomorrow for another helping.
