Noisy, crowded supermarkets
can be very stressful places, especially for customers with anxiety or autism. To help make the shopping experience easier
for all customers, one supermarket has instituted a “quiet hour” to help people shop in peace. The Asda Living superstore in Cheetham Hill in Manchester, England
, has says that at 8 a.m. on Saturday, May 7, all the escalators, display TVs, and in-store music will be turned off as part of the store’s first “quiet hour.” The silent hour is for any customers who would prefer to shop without the noise, and Lea is optimistic that it will be helpful for a lot of the store’s customers.
As an approximated two-thirds of the secretive North Korean nation
starves, their dictator — Kim Jong Un
— has been criticized for holding a lavish, MasterChef-style competition
to find the best chef in the entire country. The show was broadcast on live TV, despite the fact that many of its viewers were likely on food rations. The Pyongyang media speculates that more than a thousand prospective chefs entered the competition to serve traditional and modern North Korean dishes
, as well as European-style food
like pizza, spaghetti,
and something called “broccoli five ways.” Insiders suggest that the 33-year-old Kim
has had health problems recently because of his overweight frame and may suffer from gout.
Attention ‘90s kids! After months of swirling rumors, Coca-Cola
has officially announced the return of the neon-green Ghostbusters-themed juice drink: Hi-C Ecto Cooler.
The limited-edition drink will hit shelves on May 30, just in time for the summer release of the all-female Ghostbusters movie
reboot on July 15. As you may recall, Hi-C Ecto Cooler
was released in tandem with the first Ghostbusters
movie back in 1987, and after a few different rebrands, disappeared altogether in 2001, much to the dismay of fans. Now the lemon-lime drink is back in 10-packs of six-ounce juice boxes and in six- and 12-packs of 11.5-ounce aluminum cans. The cans are decorated with thermal ink that turns an eerie shade of green once the drink is cold.
That’s today’s Daily Dish, thanks for watching. Stop back tomorrow for another helping.
