Morning Grind: August 16, 2013

Our daily morning roundup of food-related fare from around the web.

First you go around telling us that the next Doritos Locos Taco flavor will be “Flamas,” then go and name your new DLT after something that isn’t an actual Doritos flavor. Maybe it should be renamed “Definitely Not a Doritos-Flavored Doritos Locos Taco”? Hmph.

Too. Many. Taco Bell Flamas jokes.


A Hooters in San Diego has posted a sign letting its customers know the restaurant won’t serve the city’s embattled mayor, Bob Filner, who you may know is currently being dogged by numerous sexual-harassment allegations (and who reportedly sped through his perv rehab).

Hooters- leading the charge in the fight against sexual harassment! Wait.


Michelle Obama takes teaching kids about living a healthy lifestyle very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that the first lady is releasing a rap album as part of her Lets Move! campaign.

*high fives a million angels*
