Blue Bell expected to bounce back from recall crisis, but it will cost them
The Dallas Morning News
It will cost millions and require strong evidence of beefed-up safety standards. But legal, food service and retail experts expect Blue Bell Creameries to survive the current storm — a potentially brand-busting tempest fueled by at least eight cases of listeria-related illness linked to Blue Bell products. One month after Brenham-based Blue Bell issued its first product recall in 108 years, a company spokesman said the ice cream maker and its newly hired consultants still are busy trying to find the source of listeria, a potentially deadly bacteria, in its shuttered plant in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

Why Gourmet Popcorn is Growing in Grocery Stores
[Gold Medal Products Co.]
Ready-to-eat popcorn has emerged as one of the fastest growing sectors of the snacks market. A host of pre-packaged brands in assorted flavors can now be found competing side-by-side in the aisle with chips, pretzels and crackers. But what makes this trend unique is the potential for grocery stores to private label their own gourmet popcorn.

Hershey wants to get Americans chewing
Bloomberg
Will Papa has one of the hardest jobs in the food industry: getting Americans to chew more gum. So challenged is the category — U.S. sales have fallen 15 percent to $3.5 billion since 2009 — Hershey Co.'s research chief isn't even calling his latest product gum. Ice Breakers Cool Blast Chews, which dissolve in a burst of mint after about 10 chomps, straddle the sweet spot between mints (which are still selling well) and gum (which isn't).

AMC and Dolby team up to make the laser-powered movie theaters of the future
The Verge
Over the past decade there's been a home entertainment revolution as higher-resolution video, improved display technology, and streaming services have changed the way we watch movies and TV. The good old movie theater, however, has been a bit neglected; aside from improved sound and the frustration that is 3-D, there's been no truly radical, widespread improvement since the move to digital projection. Today U.S. theater chain AMC and Dolby are announcing a partnership that promises to change that, bringing a new kind of high-end, laser projection theatrical experience to your local multiplex — and the first screens are arriving this May.

Popcorn physics 101: How a kernel pops
Scientific American
Americans eat more than 17 billion quarts of popcorn every year, yet some of the biomechanics of this deceptively simple treat still escape science. Most existing popcorn trivia — that 96 percent of kernels pop at 356 degrees Fahrenheit, for example — originated from commercial research, so a French physicist and aeronautical engineer took it on themselves to meticulously investigate the thermodynamic and acoustic properties of popcorn popping.

Listeria in Sabra hummus prompts new wave of recalls
The New York Times
Two food manufacturers have issued nationwide recalls of products because of the discovery of the potentially lethal bacterium listeria, which federal authorities have now linked to three deaths and five illnesses in Texas and Kansas. The Sabra Dipping Company recalled 30,000 cases of its classic hummus after several tubs in Michigan tested positive for the food-borne bacteria. No illnesses related to the hummus have been reported so far, according to Jennifer Holton, a spokeswoman for the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.
