Fooda, an office lunch service company, surveyed 500 people to find out how Americans are spending their lunch breaks. It found that, on average, those in media and communications took the longest lunch breaks (approximately 58 minutes) while people in the food and beverage industry took the shortest breaks (30 minutes). According to survey results, 90 percent of people buy lunch at least once a week, and 85 percent bring lunch more often than they buy it. Results showed that men are more likely to buy lunch than women. 
 
Michelin just released its first-ever guide to Singapore, complete with dozens of restaurants and street eats. Twenty-two restaurants were awarded one star, six restaurants received two, and only one restaurant was awarded the coveted three-star Michelin rating: Joël Robuchon, a celebrity chef-owned restaurant on the resort island of Sentosa. Although the new guide created a certain amount of buzz in Singapore’s culinary community, the recognition also has its detractors, who complain that local chefs are overlooked for more grandiose options. One chef pointed out that four restaurants located in Sentosa resorts alone walked away with stars; Sentosa is a sponsor of the Michelin Guide.  
 
You’ve never seen peanut butter and bananas like this before. According to a press release, Justin’s has extended its Snack Pack product line with Justin’s Peanut Butter and Banana Chip Snack Packs, “the world’s first non-perishable fruit and nut butter pairing.” The Peanut Butter and Banana Chip Snack Packs come in two flavors, Classic Peanut Butter + Banana Chips and Honey Peanut Butter + Banana Chips. One side is filled with Justin’s peanut butter; the banana chips are organic. They are made without chemicals, additives, artificial flavoring, or preservatives, and the packaging is recyclable.
