Soda grows up

Whether you call it soda, pop or (the ill-advised) soda pop, fizzy drinks have gone fancy.

Food and Drink Features

Christina Nihira
While summer is still a scorching celebration, try treating yourself to a decadent soda. Curious cream sodas, spicy ginger ales, rich root beers, tart citrus beverages with genuine bitterness, complex colas — they’re all chilling out there beside surprising, one-of-a-kind flavors as diverse as cucumber, chocolate and jalapeño oil.

Gazette staff
One-time mainstay of the comics page and the TV tube, the “Ripley’s Believe It or Not!” franchise still lives, currently in the occasional hardcover book, often marketed directly to kids via those Scholastic catalogs you used to drool over in elementary school.

Sizzle, slurp, munch

Bacon shows up in some unusual places around the metro, from cocktails to bandages.

Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer
Bacon played a part in the 2001 movie The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring when two naive characters were cooking bacon, which, in turn, tipped off the evil ringwraiths about the location of their camp. Frodo Baggins knew the risks of being spotted with a burning campfire and the smell of bacon, but by that point, his foes were on their way.
