There Will Soon be a Mountain Dew Cookbook!


I’m Clinton Griffiths with today’s AgDay Minute.

Who can forget the panic buying at the grocery stores when the coronavirus pandemic first hit? Now we are apparently seeing an increase in demand again as virus cases increase. The Wall Street Journal reporting grocery stores are reinstating purchase limits on items like paper towels or soap for the first time since the spring. With people staying at home more, retailers say there is a renewed demand for paper products and frozen foods. It reports stores also are reporting new shortages in staple cooking ingredients like butter and spices. But so far, there are no reports of widespread panic buying.

It’s predicted many people will be buying smaller turkeys this year due to smaller celebrations. And these bits of turkey are pretty small! Perdue Foods, introducing Thanksnuggets and yes, they’re exactly what they sound like. You can now order them for about 19-bucks a bag. They come in two varieties: dark turkey meat and cranberry nand breast meat. The best part? They take just 12-minutes to warm up.

If you love Mountain Dew, why not cook with it? In honor of the drink’s 80th birthday, it is launching its first-ever cookbook. It will feature nearly 40 recipes, all designed with fans in mind. There are mountain dew salsas and barbecue sauces, mountain dew brisket, and turkey. There are even green mozzarella bites and Mountain Dew-infused pickles.
