The apple harvest is in, right in time for National Apple Month! Did you know more than 2,500 varieties of apples are grown in the United States, but only the crabapple is native to North America?
It’s FINALLY time for pumpkin + pumpkin spice flavor to return to our kitchens, favorite stores and products. We-re not the only ones; Americans love pumpkin so much that last year 37 percent of the population bought a pumpkin-flavored item. We also buy enough pumpkin spice flavored items to make the economic market skyrocket. Pumpkin spice is a $361 million dollar franchise each year.
Happy National Taco Day! Although we frequently celebrate #TacoTuesday, we’ll take any excuse to eat tacos 😉 Everyone seems to love tacos so much, that billions are consumed each year. In fact, in 2012 4.5 billion tacos were eaten worldwide, across 30,910 Mexican restaurants. To give you a better understanding, 4.5 billion tacos stretches 490,000 miles of tacos. That’s enough to travel to the MOON… yes the moon, and back! That’s also 775 million pounds of tacos equivalent to the weight of 2 Empire State Buildings in New York, New York!
Our Cool Food Panel never disappoints. They are at it again with these scrumptious dinner recipes that you can cook for your family all year long.

It’s National Family Meals Month! That means ditch the drive-thru’s and the on-the-go meals – It’s time to sit down at the table with your family for a flavorful, conversation-evoking meal.
There’s so much to love about the month of September, especially since it just so happens to be National Potato Month! The average American eats about 124 pounds of potatoes per year, while Germans eat about twice as much. Today, potatoes are grown in all 50 states of the U.S. and in about 125 countries throughout the world.
We’ve said it before that snacking has become increasingly popular over the years, but it has always been common among children and adolescents, particularly after school. Many students eat lunch early—11:30 a.m. or even before—and then have an afternoon of classes and maybe even an after-school activity before their next opportunity to eat. It’s no surprise that most kids are starving by the time they get home and thus, reach for a snack.
