Man Finds Bone in His Whole Foods Trail Mix

A man in New Jersey was snacking on trail mix from Whole Foods, specifically the 365 Berry Bounty Trail Mix, when he bit down on something unexpected - a bone! The man immediately called Whole Foods and wrote a complaint, which was taken and signed by the manager at the Whole Foods in Cherry Hill. The man also filed a complaint with the Camden County Board of Health before taking the bone to a local vet; who confirmed his suspicions, telling him it could have come from a large rat or guinea pig. We've reached out to Whole Foods, but haven't heard back.

Beer and Chips Scatter Over I-95 After Trucks Crash

There’s no use crying over spilled milk, but what about spilled beer and chips? A crash in Melbourne, Florida, involving two trucks left beer and chips scattered along I-95 and closed southbound lanes for more than three hours. As a result of the crash, the Frito-Lay truck overturned and the beer truck was cut open, leading the content of both trucks to spill into the highway. No injuries were reported, but the Busch truck driver was ticketed for failing to maintain a single lane. The roads were cleaned and reopened just before 6 a.m.

Oreo Introduces New Fruity Strawberry Shortcake Flavor

Another week, another limited-edition Oreo flavor released. Strawberry shortcake Oreos made with vanilla cookies and a pastel-pink strawberry-flavored center will be available exclusively at Walmart this spring, that's according to reps from the cookie giant. The new flavor is expected to hit Walmart shelves nationwide starting April 4, just in time for the deliciously warm weather. For those keeping score at home, that makes four new Oreo flavors in 2016 alone, and 10 new Oreo varieties in the past year. The new strawberry shortcake variety will be available in regular-sized or mini packages, but get them while they’re hot — they probably won’t last long.

That's today's daily dish, thanks for watching. Stop by tomorrow for another helping.
