Menus will sport new calorie labels for alcohol
mysanantonio.com / Wed, 17 Dec 2014 05:58:03 UT
New menu labeling rules from the Food and Drug Administration will require chain restaurants with 20 or more outlets to list the amount of calories in alcoholic drinks, along with other foods, on menus by next November. After years of lobbying for more nutritional information on alcoholic beverages, public health advocates say the menu labeling rules are a first step. "Alcoholic beverages are a key contributor to the calories Americans are consuming, and most of the time when people have a drink they have absolutely no idea what its caloric impact is," says Margo Wootan of the Center for Science in the Public Interest. [...] FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg said the agency decided to include it in the final rules this year after those who commented on the rule were largely in favor of such labeling because of its potential impact on public health. Treasury's oversight, which includes minimal input from FDA, has "well served the consuming public," a coalition of alcohol groups wrote in a 2011 comment asking to be left out of the menu labeling rules. Endless combinations of mixed drinks won't have to be labeled at bars, unless they are listed on a menu, and the FDA is allowing restaurants to use estimates of calories and ranges of calories without listing the exact amount in every different drink. Last year, Treasury's Alcohol and Tobacco Trade and Tax Bureau said for the first time that beer, wine and spirits companies could use labels that include serving size, servings per container, calories, carbohydrates, protein and fat per serving.

Americans mark Thanksgiving with parades, turkey
mysanantonio.com / Thu, 27 Nov 2014 15:51:40 UT
NEW YORK (AP) — Turkey, stuffing and a helium-filled Thomas the Tank Engine are on the menu as friends and families gather across the United States to celebrate Thanksgiving. Oohing and ahhing spectators of all ages lined the route of the nationally televised Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, which counted Thomas the Tank Engine, Paddington bear and the Red Mighty Morphin Power Ranger among its six new giant balloons. Like bedazzled rock fans who land coveted stage-front spots, she and her cousins were lucky enough to score the front row of a 20-person-deep crowd. The honor of leading the parade went to the Pride of the Mountains Marching Band from Western Carolina University. The first Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade featured animals from the Central Park Zoo. Power outages from the first major snowstorm of the season could force some residents of the Northeast to celebrate Thanksgiving much like the pilgrims and Native Americans did almost 400 years ago — in the dark. Ian Rhodes, of Concord, New Hampshire, had planned to host his first Thanksgiving with his wife and two young children for a dozen people, but the power outage changed that. To the delight of some and consternation of others, it's increasingly become commonplace to see stores open on Thanksgiving, as retailers try to entice shoppers inside and kick off the holiday shopping season a day earlier than the traditional Black Friday.
