World’s First Waste Supermarket 
At the world’s first waste supermarket, you pay what you can for food that has been rescued and would otherwise be thrown out.

Cheddar – Will It Be Orange or White? 
Which do you prefer – orange cheddar or white? 

“Next time you’re walking down the snack aisle of your local supermarket, notice how cheese-flavored things in the regular chip aisle hem toward neon orange on the spectrum—the Doritos, the Cheetos, the Ritz Bits, and Cheez-Its. But when you venture into the organic aisle, the tone palette shifts, and shelves are filled with baked white-cheddar Cheetos puffs, white-cheddar popcorn, and even vegan mac and cheese with vegan white-cheddar flavor, wherever that comes from. 

“There is a cheese trend that castigates orange cheddar as inferior (i.e., it is probably mass produced, probably full of artificial ingredients, probably related to American cheese in some way) because it is orange. But I have a hard truth to share with those shunning orange cheddar just because of the color of its complexion: white cheddar can be a lie, too.” 

Powerful Mushroom Flavour

Here are 12 ingredients designed to supercharge your vegetable cooking.
