Mushrooms in the News: 3-23-18
It has been a busy week on the mushroom media front. See below for the top hits of the week, and share on your social channels to continue the conversation and inspire your friends.
A key highlight: Dave Cathey of The Oklahoman spotlighted the SONIC Slinger after spending the day at SONIC’s Culinary Innovation Center last week. “The fact that it offers fewer calories will draw a lot of folks, but I predict the flavor will keep them coming back,” says Cathey.
The Slinger will be available through the end of April, so indulge while you can! In the meantime, continue to share Buzzfeed’s Burger Hack on social (now exceeding 3M views): https://www.facebook.com/buzzfeedtasty/videos/2269771243275512/
