Inspired by the favorite meal of several Nike SB pros, the company has designed a Chicken and Waffles-inspired version of the Dunk High shoe. According to leaders with Nike, the sneaker officially launches this weekend, and will be available beginning Saturday, April 2 on and at local Nike SB retailers for $110. Described as “soul food for your feet,” the “wearable culinary masterpiece” features a special waffle woven fabric upper, chicken and waffles artwork on the insoles, and swooshes dripping with syrup.
Meredith Corporation, the publisher of major lifestyle magazines including Martha Stewart Living, Parents, Shape, Rachael Ray Every Day, and Better Homes and Gardens, has taken on the publication of Gluten Free Forever, which is a San Francisco magazine founded by Erika Lenkert. The first issue to be published under the partnership, the Spring 2016 issue, will be available beginning April 19. GFF features gluten-free recipes, products, people, and places. The upcoming issue will feature a gluten-free beer roundup, a feature on ‘Southern gluten-free hospitality,’ and recipes for gluten-free doughnuts.
The fans have spoken, and Taco Bell has granted their wishes. As a result of the Beefy Crunch Movement, which began five years ago, the Beefy Crunch Burrito will return to Taco Bell menus nationwide on April 21. The Cheesy Double Beef Burrito, another fan favorite, will also come back after a three-year hiatus. According to the company, future fan-favorite additions to the menu will be determined by “fan excitement, passion, and engagement.”
