Also this weekend, I recorded a new episode of the Junk Fud podcast. This episodes theme was pizza. Mark, who has been a guest on the Junk Fud podcast in the past had some great stories and insights into the world of pizza. Hopelly this episode will be online later this week. Mark being such a great guest in the past and this time, is now going to be a regular on the Junk Fud podcast. For now we're looking to post a new episode of Junk Fud featuring Mark every month. We're still working out the details, so stay tuned.
This week we're also starting out a contest, brought to you by our friends at Just Born (the folks that make Mike & Ikes and Peeps). They have some new/retro flavours of Mike and Ikes coming out soon, and they want to share some with one of our readers. To win this prize pack, all you have to do is send an email or message explaining what your favorite flavour of candy is. Tell us why this flavour is your favorite and whomever can convince us the most will get the new Mike and Ikes sent to their house (You must be a resident of the USA to enter, sorry rest of the world). You can submit your answer in the comments here, or send us a message on Facebook, Twitter, or here. Make sure include some way for us to contact you back (email always works), and the contest will end in two weeks (February 9th a midnight Eastern).

When I was a little kid, I was convinced that Orville Redenbacher was a fictional character, and the guy on TV was just an actor. I learned later that this was in fact the man, and that he started his popcorn empire when he was only 12 years old. This man changed the way we snack on foods, and he rocked a bow tie like no one else could.

There are two reasons I looked up this commercial the other day. First of all I discovered (while doing some research for our Instagram feed Snack Facts) that the inventor of Lucky Charms designed his cereal by cutting up Circus Peanuts into a bowl of cereal. I thought I'd check an old school commercials for fun. The second reason I'm posting this particular commercial is because it listed some of the more traditional marshmallows from Luck Charms. Allison and I were talking about Lucky Charms and we thought about buying a box. Then Allison saw all of the "new" marshmallows now available and she was blown away (in a bad way). She felt that the new marshmallows were confusing, and she couldn't really figure out what a balloon had to do with a leprechaun. So do you miss the classic marshmallows in Luck Charms, or are you OK with the new ones?
