[brightcove:5483844346001 default] Actor Daniel Spenser has discovered a bizarre Trader Joe’s quirk that we can never unsee now. Spenser pointed out that all Trader Joe’s products have five-syllable names, but to get more specific, you can sing most Trader Joe’s product names to the tune of “Eleanor Rigby” by The Beatles. Eleanor Rigby when sung sounds like Ele-a-nor Rig-by. Try singing the following Trader Joe’s products to the tune of “Eleanor Rigby,” because it’s super satisfying. Harvest whole wheat bread. Mini beef tacos. Super burrito. Pita bite crackers. Three seed beet crackers. Pesto and quinoa. If you aren’t familiar with the song (huh?),

This Is the Controversial Ingredient Inside the New Diet Coke Flavors

[brightcove:4874680279001 default] When Coca-Cola’s new Diet Coke flavors hit store shelves in mid-January, serious soda aficionados may notice a new ingredient on the product’s label—acesulfame potassium, or Ace-K.

I Hated Beets, Until I Tried Them Like This

[brightcove:5041672873001 default] Let’s get this straight: I generally hate beets. There is nothing about this root vegetable to that appeals to me.

Don’t get me wrong, I have given beets a fair chance. I’ve eaten them roasted, boiled, mashed, and pickled, but eating them raw in a salad might
