Canadian Man Drives Zamboni Through Tim Hortons Drive-Thru

“The most Canadian thing ever” just happened: Jesse Myshak of Albert Canada drove his Zamboni through a Tim Hortons Drive-Thru. Myshak was driving his Zamboni home to clear and smooth his own backyard hockey rink when he decided to stop for hot chocolate at his local “Timmies” — and took the massive ice resurfacing machine right up to the drive-thru window. Zambonis don’t move very quickly, so there was plenty of time for the Tim Hortons employees and patrons to see, and enjoy, what was happening.

Man Wins Pizza for a Year, Donates Prize to Food Bank
North Hampton, Pennsylvania native Josh Katrick just won a year’s worth of freepizza, but instead of keeping the prize to himself, Katrick donated his winnings to a local food bank instead. Each month, the North Hampton Food bank will receive two large pizzas and a bottle of soda from Mario’s Pizzeria. Katrick, who has been diagnosed with colon cancer, told reporters he’s been getting so much support from friends, family, and members of the community that he felt compelled to pass on his good luck.

The line, set to be released this month, will feature five chocolate bar flavors: Crunchy Munchies, Wake ‘N’ Bacon, Cereal Bowl, Mellow Milk, and Dark Daze.

Consumers Pay More Attention to Ingredients Than Labels When Buying Food

It seems as though fancy labels with buzz words like fat-free” or “sugar-free” are not as an effective of a marketing tool as they once were. Instead, consumers are ignoring the pretty front labels and flipping the product over to look at the ingredients list. According to the study, around 61 percent of consumers said the shorter the ingredients list, the healthier the product. Dr. Sharon Allison-Ottey, author of Is That Fried Chicken Worth It?, told Bloomberg, "The overall trend of a more-educated consumer is excellent. Just being aware of what you're eating leads you to eating less."
