Welcome to The Daily Meal’s Daily Dish, where we highlight what’s hot and trending in the world of all things food and drink.
Today’s first course?
There are a few notable developments in the beverage world! First, in the U.K., a wine subscription company called Naked Wines is enabling people to order wine via text.
In the latest battle between passengers and airport security, rather than surrendering her pricey drink to officials upholding a ban against boarding with more than 100 milliliter of liquid, one woman transferring at a Beijing airport drank an entire bottle of duty-free Rémy Martin cognac (she ended up too drunk to fly).
Back in the U.S., a beer named for the late, disgraced Penn State football coach Joe Paterno is stirring up controversy. If your memory is foggy, Paterno was fired in 2012 after the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal. The beer hit shelves in western Pennsylvania, and people aren’t happy.
Dunkin’ Donuts is prepping for football season with a new breakfast sandwich to celebrate tailgating. The Tailgater Breakfast Sandwich is a hybrid between a sausage and peppers hero and a traditional egg sandwich, featuring sausage, peppers, eggs, Cheddar, ancho chipotle sauce, and onions on a French roll. It will be available all day starting August 31.
During an appearance on Fox News, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told host Bill O’Reilly he didn’t believe China’s president, Xi Jinping, deserves his White House state dinner scheduled for September. Instead Trump said he’d get Xi, who he accused of devaluing Chinese currency, “a McDonald's hamburger,” probably “a double-size Big Mac.”
And that’s today's Daily Dish. Thanks for watching. Stop by tomorrow for another helping.
