The Daily Dish - May 26, 2016

Brian Sheehan dishes on what's hot and trending in the world of all things food and drink for Thursday, May 26 2016.

Today’s first course? 
 
The USDA is looking to give even more nutritional information to consumers nowadays. First, the nutrition labels were overhauled and redesigned and now USDA-grade beef will come with a warning label specifying whether or not it has been mechanically tenderized. Although the tenderization process is common, it has actually been linked to the spreading of E. coli and salmonella, which might have increased foodborne pathogens over the past several years.
 
The unlikely worlds of Michelin and instant ramen have come together in the form of convenience store offerings created by Tsuta, the world’s first Michelin-starred ramen restaurant. The restaurant has partnered with convenience store chains Circle K and Sunkus to distribute two products inspired by restaurant offerings that people can enjoy in the comfort of their own homes and without the hours-long wait to actually eat at the restaurant. 
 
Looks like Starbucks isn’t the only company with s’mores on the brain for summer. Pizza Hut has just launched a Hershey’s Toasted S’mores Cookie, which essentially takes its Ultimate Hershey’s Chocolate Chip Cookie and piles on s’mores ingredients over top. The eight-inch cookie is topped with toasted mini marshmallows, Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar chunks, and graham cracker pieces, according to a release. It is available for a limited time for $6.99.
 
That’s today’s Daily Dish, thanks for watching. Stop by tomorrow for another helping.
