Arby’s New Pac-Man Glass

Arby’s is currently franchised by Triarc, who also franchises T.J. Cinnamons and Pasta Connection and once owned Royal Crown Cola (better known as R.C. Cola), which Arby’s sold until the mid-1990’s.

[Pac-Man] was developed primarily by Namco employee Toru Iwatani over eighteen months. The original title was pronounced pakku-man (パックマン, pakku-man) and was inspired by the Japanese onomatopoeic phrase paku-paku taberu (パクパク食べる, paku-paku taberu), where paku-paku describes (the sound of) the mouth movement when widely opened and then closed in succession. Although it is often cited that the characteristic shape was inspired by a pizza missing a slice, he admitted in a 1986 interview that it was a half-truth and the character design also came from simplifying and rounding out the Japanese character for mouth, kuchi (口) as well as the basic concept of eating.

Where’s The Beef?

After successful early growth of the [Wendy’s] chain, sales flattened as the company struggled to achieve brand differentiation in the highly competitive fast-food market. This situation would turn around in the mid-1980s. Starting on January 9, 1984, elderly actress Clara Peller was featured in the successful “Where’s the Beef?” North American commercial campaign for Wendy’s. Her famous line quickly entered the American pop culture (it was even used by Walter Mondale in a debate with Gary Hart in the Democratic primary election) and served to promote Wendy’s hamburgers. Peller, age 84, was dropped from the campaign in 1985 because she performed in a commercial for Prego spaghetti sauce, saying she “finally found” the beef. Peller was soon after replaced by Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas himself.

Hungarian Sausage Fest

A sausage consists of ground meat, animal fat, herbs and spices, and sometimes other ingredients, usually packed in a casing (historically the intestines of the animal, though now generally synthetic), and sometimes preserved in some way, often by curing or smoking. Sausage making is a very old food preservation technique.

Kolbász is the Hungarian word for sausage and generally refers to a type consisting of: ground pork, salt, garlic, black pepper, and paprika. Kolbász may be served fresh or smoked; “hot” (for varying degree) or “mild”.

Eric Mun Eats Spam

In South Korea, Spam is popular in households as an accompaniment to rice. A television ad claimed that it is the most tasty when consumed with white rice and gim (nori or black seaweed used for some type of handrolls). It is also an original ingredient for pudaejjige (also called budaechigae), a spicy stew with different types of preserved meat.

Mun Jung-hyuk (Korean: 문 정혁, Hanja: 文政革), born on February 16, 1979), also known as Eric, is a Korean entertainer, known mostly for his role as the lead rapper in the boy band Shinhwa, using the English name Eric. He has also branched out into drama acting, starting in 2003, under his birth name.

Marmite Breastfeeding

Marmite is a British savoury spread made from yeast extract, a by-product of beer brewing. It is a sticky, dark brown paste with a distinctive, powerful taste that polarises consumer opinion. This is reflected in the company’s marketing slogan: “Love it or hate it”.

Breastfeeding is the feeding of an infant or young child with milk from a woman’s breasts. Babies have a sucking reflex that enables them to suck and swallow milk. Experimental evidence suggests that, with few exceptions, human breast milk is the best source of nourishment for human infants. Experts still disagree about how long breastfeeding should continue to gain the most benefit, and how much extra risk is involved in using breast milk substitutes.

Vomiting (also throwing up or emesis) is the forceful expulsion of the contents of one’s stomach through the mouth and sometimes the nose. Vomiting may result from many causes, ranging from gastritis or poisoning to brain tumors, or elevated intracranial pressure (ICP). The feeling that one is about to vomit is called nausea.

Overweight? Try the Ayds Reducing Plan

Ayds was an appetite-suppressant candy which enjoyed strong sales in the 1970s and early 1980s. It was available in chocolate, chocolate mint, butterscotch or caramel flavors, and later a peanut butter flavor was introduced. The original packaging used the phrase “Ayds Reducing Plan vitamin and mineral Candy”; a later version used the phrase “appetite suppressant candy”. The active ingredient inthe candy was 5.5 mg benzocaine, presumably to reduce the sense of taste to reduce eating.
