From Donald Trump's Oreos statement to a fast food media scuffle, below are some interesting reads from the week:
Burger King’s marketing campaign for Peace Day and non-profit Peace One Day — featured in full-page print ads in The New York Times and the Chicago Tribune — asks an important question of competitor McDonald’s, asking they combine their (in)famous burgers: the McWhopper.
The ad says, "We know we’ve had our petty differences, but how about we call a cease-fire on these so-called 'burger-wars?'"
However, McDonald’s isn’t having any of it, according to this brief but telling Facebook post.
Everyone has something to say about Oreos, including Donald Trump. He said will never eat Oreos again because parent company Mondelez closed a Chicago plant and moved it to Mexico. Except, that’s not totally true: the Chicago plant will still be running, though the jobs there will be slashed in half, with four new production lines headed to Mexico in place of nine old ones in Chicago.
Consumers who still love cereal (wherever they are) can rejoice: a breakfast cereal bar opened this week in New York, featuring 24 cereal flavors, 25 toppings, and five types of milk. How expensive is it to book a train to New York right now?
"Empire's" Cookie won’t say "Bye, Felicia" Pepsi, which is sponsoring the series in season two, premiering this fall.
Traveling in London just got happier. For a month trial, restaurants in London Gatwick will feature foods specifically tailored to lift up travelers' moods.
"There are certain foods that will help the 'happy' chemicals in your brain to keep flowing. Two key players are the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, along with amino acids tryptophan and theanine, which can contribute to the creation of serotonin, known to most as 'happy hormones,'" nutritionist Jo Travers told CNN.
