The States That Love Hot Sauce the Most . . . and the Least
National Hot Sauce Day is this Saturday . . . and in a new survey, 74% of Americans say they like eating hot sauce with their food, with 45% using it at least once a week. But people in some areas use it more than others.
Instacart looked at their sales data over the past year . . . and ranked every state based on how much hot sauce they ordered.
The state that ordered the most was: North Dakota. Instacart sold 5.8 ounces of hot sauce per customer there. New Mexico was second . . . followed by Colorado, California, North Carolina, Oregon, Wyoming, and Minnesota.
The state that ordered the least was: Hawaii. The people there ordered just 1.3 ounces per customer. Iowa ordered the second-least hot sauce . . . followed by Arkansas, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Utah, and South Dakota. (So to anyone who just lumps the Dakotas together, clearly one IS superior.)

There's a Viral TikTok of a Lady Flipping Out on a Closed Taco Bell for Refusing to Serve Her at 4:03 A.M.
Nothing good happens after 2:00 A.M. That includes hitting up a Taco Bell drive-thru at 4:03 A.M. And that also includes flipping out on Taco Bell for refusing to serve you at 4:03 A.M.
There's a viral TikTok that was allegedly posted by a Taco Bell employee, which captured a woman's anger at not being served. The location she went to closed at 4:00 A.M., but she showed up at 4:03 A.M.
The woman demanded the phone number to Taco Bell corporate . . . but the employee gave her their PERSONAL cell.
When the woman called, they pretended to be corporate . . . and for added authenticity, they clicked away on a computer keyboard as she raged.
She used the classic "Karen-talking-to-the-manager" lines: She's a regular customer . . . they're losing business because she was going to order $20 or maybe even $30 worth of food . . . she'll take her business to another Taco Bell location . . . and she wants to be compensated for being wronged. (???)
One commenter joked, "The fact that y'all close at 4:00 A.M. . . . and she STILL couldn't make it on time."

Dolly Parton’s Strawberry Pretzel Ice Cream Is Coming Back For A Limited Time
Dolly Parton and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream collaboration is returning for another limited-edition run of her Strawberry Pretzel Pie ice cream. To review, when it was first introduced back in April 2021, it sold out immediately.
Don’t remember? The company says it’s made of sweet cream cheese ice cream layered with salty pretzel bits and red strawberry sauce. As with the original promotion,
sales will benefit Dolly’s Imagination Library, a nonprofit she founded in 1995 that gifts free books to children from birth to the age of five. The goal is to encourage early reading and 173-million books have been gifted since the program began.
As an added bonus, fans can also pre-order an exclusive digital version of her new 12-song album, “Run, Rose Run.” This version includes a 13th bonus track “Rose of My Heart.” The actual album drops on March 4th and is a companion to a new novel with the same name that Dolly wrote with James Patterson. It’s about a young woman who moves to Nashville to become a star (the book is set to drop March 7th). All the songs were based on characters and situations in the book.
- The Strawberry Pretzel Pie ice cream goes for $12 per pint and the “Run, Rose, Run” digital album is $8. Both can be ordered HERE at the Jeni’s website. The ice cream pints will ship in April, but the digital album will arrive on the release date of March 4th.
