Every year, a marketing firm starts crunching numbers and collecting data to figure out the top food-related stories that were in the news. Two crazy stories were in a battle for first place in 2019. It's no surprise that the Popeyes Chicken Sandwich chaos made it to the top of the list.

Check out the list of the top 4 stories that had several of us scratching our heads.

  1. The Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Craze. Remember when the Popeye's sandwich sold out in a day? Then we waited for 3 months to get it back. My arteries are still clogged from eating that sandwich on day one.
  2. Blue Bell Lickers. Proof that nothing is sacred. When that woman who shall remain unnamed decided to lick a  blue bell ice cream and put it back for some unsuspecting grocery shopper to put in their carts we all were very wary of eating Blue Bell. We are just happy that she was arrested, and the copycats who followed were also arrested.
  3. Do you even Keto? Just like Vegans and Crossfit community members, everyone knows someone who takes part in the new and improved Atkins diet.
  4. Say "no" to chicken. Our excuse to order a steak instead of chicken for dinner was validated when we found out that over 2 million pounds of chicken were recalled last month.

We hope that 2020 brings us more chicken sandwich stories and less ice cream lickers.
