If you are looking flight dealsyou know that the the end of the year is not the best time to fly. Rising prices during holidays and crowded airports can make travel difficult.

It can, however, be a good time to buy flights for the coming year. This is especially true if you manage to find a Travel Tuesday sale for an exciting destination. Play, a low-cost airline based in Icelandworks exactly like a sale from November 24 to 29.

Play will offer 35% off flights from the US to Iceland and 40% off flights from the US to its other 23 destinations across Europe. These European centers include London, Paris, Dublin, Berlin and many other places. If you buy during these three days, you will be able to select travel from November 24 to March 31, 2023.

play only recently started fly from USA to Europe. Some potential Icelandic adventurers will need to travel out of one of the three US cities. And that doesn’t include Orlando, where the airline once planned to expand. Discounted flights are only available from Boston (BOS), Baltimore/Washington, DC (BWI) and New York (SWF).

Still, even if you have to go to one of these cities first, you might find that you still save some money. Play’s flights are already low-cost. Cut a little more which makes the flights quite alluring.

However, you should always do some math on a notebook when booking with a low cost airline. There are a lot of fees that can add up. However, the airline calls this a la carte pricing. This means that the base price you see in the sale is not much more than the promise of getting you from place to place. If you wish to choose your seat yourself, charges apply. If you want food you will have to pay for it. Luggage? It will be expensive. But, if you’re willing to fly no-frills, you can save some cash and spend that saved cash at your final destination.

Seoul: Buzzing with fun and laughter until the other day, Itaewon is quiet and eerie, with the deaths of 156 people in a Halloween stampede on October 29 casting a dark shadow over the glittering nightlife hub of the South Korean capital.

Some shops are open and many are closed, there is hardly any traffic and the air is heavy with the scent of incense sticks at the makeshift memorial near the driveway where a growing crowd of revelers has spiraled out of control. The ensuing stampede killed 156 people, mostly in their 20s and 30s, and injured more than 170.

5 Traditional Foods You Need To Bring Back Into Your Diet If You’ve Replaced Them With Modern Substitutes https://nestleeuropeanchocolate.com/5-traditional-foods-you-need-to-bring-back-into-your-diet-if-youve-replaced-them-with-modern-substitutes/ Sat, 05 Nov 2022 10:45:01 +0000 https://nestleeuropeanchocolate.com/5-traditional-foods-you-need-to-bring-back-into-your-diet-if-youve-replaced-them-with-modern-substitutes/ In recent years, healthy eating and diet foods have taken a 360 degree turn.

In recent years, healthy eating and diet foods have taken a 360 degree turn. When it comes to losing weight or managing a healthy diet, most of us are drawn to modern substitutes rather than traditional Indian food. For example, instead of the traditional cow’s milk that our generations have consumed and lived healthily for a long time, most of us have found substitutes like almond and soy milk. Instead of taking a traditional Pinjari bowl, we choose a dark chocolate. The traditional Daliya has taken a back seat and Quinoa has become a new bowl of health.

For years, doctors and dieticians have emphasized including traditional, homemade foods in your diet to achieve all health-related goals. Here are five foods available in all Indian cuisines, which may be healthier options for your health journey compared to the modern substitute.

Panjiri or dark chocolate?

The winter season in India has already started and we are consuming foods like pinni and panjeri, but these foods are criticized by many as unhealthy choices. On the other hand, dark chocolates are recommended as a substitute for these traditional sweets by many dietitians. However, a cup of Panjiri not only has less sugar but also less fat than dark chocolate; 100g of dark chocolate is said to contain around 34.6g of fat and 46.5g of sugar, compared to 23.2g of fat and 29.2g of sugar in a cup of Panjiri.

Traditional milk or vegetable milk?

Currently we have a variety of milk options, such as skim milk, raw milk, lactose free milk, cashew milk, oat milk, tonic milk, goat milk, coconut milk and almond milk. But traditionally, and still today in most parts of India, people prefer cow’s milk, which is a healthier option.

Moreover, other alternatives like soy milk and almond milk, there is a huge difference not only in the nutritional value but also in the cost of the products.

A 250 gram bottle of cow’s milk would cost around ₹50/L and have a calcium value of 300mg and protein content of 8g. Soymilk, which is also expensive, would cost around ₹110/L, have a calcium content of 75mg and a protein content of 6g. Almond milk, on the other hand, would cost around ₹220/L and contain a serving of 240mg of calcium and only 1 gram of protein. Cow mink, on the other hand, would cost you Rs 50 for 500 grams with more benefits for your health.

Fast food or traditional Indian cuisine?

While dieting throughout the week, sometimes we tend to lose control and eat fast food to satisfy our taste buds. The temptation to lick our fingers is not bad, but the foods we eat must be chosen wisely.

For example, if you want to take away a burger, opt instead for a traditional Indian dish with fewer calories than the modern burger. A veggie burger contains about 753.2 kilocalories, 94.7 grams and 33.2 grams of fat, and just by adding the medium fries we add another 340 kilocalories. Instead, a gobhi parantha with butter (10 g) for breakfast, then rajma chawal for lunch, and butter chicken curry with 2 rotis for dinner, the total sum of calories would be about 851 kilocalories. What is the best?

Dalia or Muesli?

Recently, muesli, which is recommended by many self-proclaimed fitness enthusiasts for weight loss, can easily be replaced by traditional Dalia.

A bowl of 100 of Dalia contains about 1.5 grams of fat. It is high in fiber and will have 65 calories. Speaking of muesli, 100 grams will contain 6 grams of fat, less fiber than Daliaand about 8 grams of protein.

In addition, muesli contains about 23.5 g of sugar per 100 g, while in Daliya does not contain sugar. Clearly, Daliya is more nutritious and healthy, and at the same time it is easier to transport than Muesli.

Bajra or oats?

Oats are considered one of the best foods for weight loss. It is high in fiber and a good vegetarian source of protein. On the other hand, Bajrahwhich is eaten by almost everyone in northern India in winter, is not only a part of traditional food but contains similar carbohydrates and less calories than oats.

Bajrah flour contains fewer calories than any other flour available; it is rich in fiber and helps in weight loss. It also contains high levels of vitamin B6, which is good for people with high cholesterol issues.

Bajra has a high amount of soluble fiber and a low glycemic index, both of which are beneficial for type 2 diabetes.

Turns out more than a third of people never touch the candy

Bounty bars are set to be banned from Celebrations tubs this Christmas, which is likely to divide opinion.

The mini candy bar will be removed from some jars in a trial after research found 39% of consumers never touched the coconut candies.

Customers at select Tesco Christmas Market locations will be able to exchange bins bought in store that day for a new ‘No Bounty’ alternative until December 18.

The limited-edition jars will include extra Mars, Snickers, Milky Way, Galaxy, and Maltesers candies to make up for the missing Bounty bars.

Mars Wrigley said his own research of 2,000 Britons aged 18 to 65 suggested 18% would feel irritated to find only Bounty bars in the bath, while 58% thought it would lead to a family argument.

One in four consumers want the bars gone for good, and just over a fifth (22%) say they like Bounty the least of all the tub options.

Some 28% felt that coconut had no place in a chocolate bar at all.

The decision to remove the chocolate bar follows a Bounty return program last year, in which Bounty haters were able to return their unwanted chocolates and exchange them for Maltesers after the Christmas period.

The trial is taking place in 40 Tesco Christmas Market locations, but it has divided opinion.

Emily Owen, Senior Brand Manager of Celebrations, said: “You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. And for those loyal – and secret – Bounty lovers, there’s still a chance let them come back after the trial.”

Here is a selection of what people have to say:

But the guy Forbes calls “The Real Willy Wonka” never imagined that he would make a career in confectionery. The root had the chance to speak with Phillip Ashley Rix about how he managed to make a living making chocolate.

Growing up in Memphis, Rix said he was a kid with a wild imagination and said Fraggle Rock, Reading Rainbow and LEGO were some of his favorite things.

Although he always loved cooking and grew up in the kitchen with his grandmother, Rix said he never thought of a career in the food industry. “I went to chemistry school and originally planned to go to medical school,” he said. “I found myself in business in the logistics supply chain with consumer packaged goods.”

But in 2007, Rix, who has always been a fan of the Willy Wonka story, decided he wanted to do something different. “I woke up at 3:00 a.m. one morning and decided I wanted to be a chocolatier and make chocolate for the rest of my life,” he said.

Using his background in chemistry, Rix spent the next three years learning how to make chocolate. “I learned about the history of chocolate, its West African origins and how almost 70% of the world’s chocolate comes from West Africa,” he said.

But he also wanted to incorporate his love of art into something beautiful. “My uncle is a professional painter and he used to take me to art galleries. He exposed me to Basquiat and Monet at a young age. And now I try to implement that in what we do visually and how we present our chocolate,” he said.

When asked to name his favorite chocolate, Rix says he hasn’t done it yet and he doesn’t want to. “When I started down this path, I wanted to be able to make chocolate 365 days a year and be able to sell it. My approach to chocolate is to be able to turn concept into flavor and communicate that flavor through chocolate.

Standing in the center aisle of the pharmacy, with its seasonal display of spooky bat decorations, vampire teeth and fun-sized bags of chocolate, don’t be surprised if something goes wrong.

It’s not a nightmare. Your Halloween candy just got smaller.

A bag of Hershey’s Kisses dark chocolate is now a few ounces smaller than before.

A two-cup pack of Reese’s Peanut Butter is a tenth of an ounce lighter. And Cadbury milk bars are around 10% leaner.

Consumers can partly blame “shrinkflation” – the phenomenon of manufacturers reducing the size of their products rather than raising the price.

Over the past two years, companies have downsized paper products, salty snacks and many other packaged consumer goods as their ingredient, labor and transportation costs have skyrocketed. .

But it’s also part of a years-long plan to make American sweets lower in calories.

In 2017, Mars Wrigley, Ferrero (owner of American candy company Nestlé), Ferrara Candy Company and Lindt (which owns Ghirardelli Chocolate and Russell Stover Chocolates) joined forces to reduce calories, offer a wider range portion sizes and provide labeling that lists calories on the front of their package.

The National Confectioners Association announced last month that 85% of chocolate and candy sold today comes in packages with 200 calories or less per package.

And nearly 100% of candy sold now has front-of-package calorie labels, up from just over half in 2016.

“Five years ago, we were behind the ball on front-of-pack labeling,” said association spokesman Christopher Gindlesperger. “These four companies, which represent about half of the market, have driven remarkable change and rallied the rest of the industry.”

Other measures aim to offer lighter options to candy consumers.

Hershey, for example, introduced “thin” versions of classic candies like Reese’s Cups, York Patties and Kit Kats.

The company has launched a growing list of sugar-free options, from Jolly Ranchers to Twizzlers.

Ferrero’s Kinder Bueno launched individually wrapped minis, and Mars Wrigley launched new sizing options, including a 0.76-ounce Snickers bar that weighs just 100 calories.

Mars Wrigley declined to comment on further portion size reductions, as did Ferrero, Ghirardelli Chocolate and Russell Stover Chocolates.

The start of the pandemic was tough for candy, said Sally Wyatt, food and beverage expert for market research firm IRI.

Many people skipped Easter and Halloween in 2020, and desktop vending machines saw hardly any action.

But 2021 has seen a boom as families comforted themselves with sweet treats, with volume sales up more than 4%, the firm said.

Over the past year, things have changed again, according to IRI data, with sales numbers dropping and prices soaring.

Food prices have risen 11.4% over the past year, the biggest 12-month increase since May 1979.

Business data platform Klover, which collects spending and price data using receipts from 4 million users, found that the price of a king-size pack of peanut butter cups by Reese’s is up 14% in 2022, A Kinder Joy Chocolate Egg Treat with toys is 16% more expensive, and the cost of a regular 1.55 ounce Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bar is up 15%.

Klover found that prices for king-sized Skittles were up 10% year-over-year, and prices for Twizzlers Pull ‘N’ Peel cherry candies were up 9%.

In short, many candy sizes and wrappers are going down, but not the prices.

“All of these companies have to make these decisions based on cost,” Wyatt said. “But I can say with certainty that the confectionery companies engaged in these [calorie reductions and front-of-label calorie counts] before inflation starts.

“Products that have transparent labeling outperform others.”

Edgar Dworsky, director of Consumer World and shrink expert, said the phenomenon is common in the candy category.

“Do people pay less attention to the net weight of sweets?” Maybe. Is cutting back on candy the end of the world? No. It’s a treat,” he said.

“Fun size” is subjective, with the size of individual packets and candies under this moniker varying wildly over the years.

Candy may actually be the category that experienced the first contraction, Dworsky said.

In the 1950s, he said, candy companies told vending machine operators they should raise prices from 5 cents per candy bar to 6 cents.

The vending machine people hesitated and asked the confectionery companies to reduce the size of the products.

Message from Dworsky: The only way for consumers to protect themselves from shrinkage is to memorize product weights.

“It will go too far if you open this carton of eggs and there are only 11 inside,” he joked.

Health and nutrition-focused nonprofit groups have long called on candy makers to downsize their products, cut calories, and add a clear calorie count on the front of the label. .

“We applaud these companies for stepping up and helping consumers manage their sugar intake through innovation, transparency and education,” Nancy Roman, president of the Partnership for a Healthier America, said in a statement.

“The results of this engagement show that companies have the opportunity to influence change while maintaining their business models and keeping consumers first.”

With skyrocketing childhood obesity, it’s always an uphill battle.

Portions may be smaller, but the temptation is growing: According to the National Confectioners Association, before the pandemic, Halloween was an 8-week season.

Now it’s 10, maybe 12 weeks. That’s another month for every pharmacy in the country to be overflowing with candy.

For retailers, it’s an opportunity to build excitement and get shoppers into stores for the holidays a little earlier. And it is perfect for greedy customers.

“Retailers and consumers want it,” Wyatt said. Candy, after all, “is one of those inexpensive joys.”

If you’re anything like us, grabbing a chocolate bar and laughing it off as quickly as possible is pretty much the only way we know how to eat chocolate — but according to experts, we’ve done it all wrong.

A new study has found that chocolate should never be stored in the fridge (culprit, especially after this summer’s heat wave) and should be eaten by 11am (we won’t argue with that one).

The study, commissioned by Galaxy, revealed that the UK is a nation of chocolate lovers, with 34% of us munching on a bar every day.

Natalie Alibrandi, a food expert, revealed that the most common mistake we make with chocolate is storing it in the fridge. She said it’s best stored at 18C. “If the chocolate is too hot, it crumbles or melts in your hands. If you can’t hear a snap when it breaks, it’s probably not the right temperature,” she said. The telegraph.

Scientists also recommend that the best time to eat chocolate is earlier in the day (between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.), which makes chocolate a great choice for a pick-me-up because your palate hasn’t been tainted by other lunch flavors – something only one in five Brits (20%) already do.

Here are food scientist Natalie Alibrandi’s 10 rules for eating chocolate:

  1. Chocolate at Elevenses – Consume earlier in the day with a fresh palate for an excellent mid-morning caffeine boost to carry you through to lunch.
  2. Do not store in the refrigerator – Store chocolate at 18 degrees to prevent oxidation, sugar blooming and any transfer of odors.
  3. Let melt, do not chew! – By letting it melt, you let the cocoa butter coat in your mouth, allowing you to discover all the flavors.
  4. Eat in small amounts – Eat up to six 4-gram servings to avoid overstimulating the taste buds.
  5. Use all your senses – Sight, smell, texture and even hearing are part of the experience
  6. Make it Vivid – When chocolate breaks, it means it’s tempered correctly and has the right structure and quality.
  7. No Distractions – Chocolate has so many volatiles and nuances, give it as much attention as it deserves, it will enhance the overall experience.
  8. Unexpected pairings – Try sweet chocolate (milk or white) with bitter foods or bitter chocolate with saltier foods.
  9. Wait for the aftertaste – Some chocolates can leave an aftertaste for 45 minutes, but in most cases a 15 minute wait will suffice.
  10. Don’t mix – Mixing different types of chocolate can overstimulate the taste buds, so avoid mixing different types (eg, milk chocolate and dark chocolate).
