What a year. In 2015 we all prayed for Paris, met Caitlyn Jenner, and heard the Supreme Court say that gay marriage is legal. And through all of that, we ate. Food was our constant companion. So let’s take a minute to appreciate the biggest food headlines you probably read about and maybe forgot about.

All the people wanted was to be able to walk in to McDonald’s at 9 p.m. and get an Egg McMuffin. Was that so hard to make happen?

They don’t. Obama said so. Okay? The PRESIDENT. Just stop.
I can’t even talk about this anymore.
4. Processed Meats Linked To Cancer
Yes I know that this shouldn’t get blown out of proportion and the real danger is about the same as alcohol. I get it, bacon is delicious. But the link was made by the World Health Organization, so it’s worth paying attention to. It certainly caused enough of an uproar.
5. Asparagus Water

C’mon, Whole Foods. What did you think was going to happen.
Honorable Mention – Pizza Rat
Because obviously. We are all Pizza Rat sometimes, right?
