The Daily Dish - June 20, 2016

The Daily Meal dishes on what's hot and trending in the world of all things food and drink for Monday, June 20, 2016.

Today's first course?

Recently, one server thought he’d been blessed with a big tip from a very generous and deep-pocketed patron, but the tipper came back the next day to ask for it back. the customer at Thailicious in Denver left a $1,088 tip on a $60 bill over the weekend. That’s a huge tip, but that sort of thing is not unheard of. Still, the restaurant owners were concerned about it, so they say they decided to hold onto it for a little while to make sure the customer didn’t come back for it. The next day, he did. The embarrassed customer reportedly told the owners that he was really drunk when he left the big tip. He said he’d forgotten how much money he had on him, and somehow he left a big pile of $100 bills on the table for the server. Of course, the restaurant returned the money.
 
Confectionary producer Mars Chocolate wants to, somewhat ironically, help you watch your sweet tooth. The company is considering removing its products from “sugary dessert treats,” as it is concerned that these desserts, such as the McDonald’s McFlurry and Burger King’s Snickers Pie, exceed the amount of sugar recommended for daily consumption by the U.S. government. Mars stands by the idea that sweets are best enjoyed in moderation, and a move away from being associated with these overly sweet, indulgent treats could be a strategic move in the name of image. To this end the company has also promised to limit the amount of sugar in all of its products in accordance with the guidelines from leading health authorities.
  
Galaxy desserts are our newest favorite Instagram dessert trend since our glossy, colorful cakes obsession last month. Galaxy desserts come in all varieties — doughnuts, cupcakes, layer cakes, cookies, truffle balls, and more. They each have one thing in common: Their surface is decorated to look like the swirling, purple, inky blackness of the galaxy with stardust, and even miniature sugary renditions of the Milky Way galaxy. We’ve posted some of our ultimate favorites, and invite you to check them out. Just head on over to the Entertain section to see for yourself.
 
That’s today’s Daily Dish, thanks for watching. Stop by tomorrow for another helping.
