No, the Secret to Green Beer Isn't Blue Food Coloring

A writer for Thrillist.com claims the secret to making green beer for St. Patrick's Day is using BLUE food coloring. And when we saw the article, we thought, "Wow, that's a great tip. We'd never heard that before." But here's why . . .

We watched a bunch of YouTube videos, and it turns out he's just WRONG. Using blue and yellow to make green works in art class, but not with beer apparently.

If you add a drop or two of blue food coloring, you end up with turquois beer. It'll still be green-ISH. But green food coloring works much better. So ignore the hype and just stick with green.

Here are three more tips if you want to make green beer for St. Patrick's Day . . .

1. It works best with light beer, like a lager or pilsner. The lighter the beer, the greener it'll look. So things like Bud Light and Coors Light work well.

2. Use somewhere between 2 and 5 drops of green food coloring per beer. It depends on what type of beer you use, and what shade of green you want. So try it with two drops first, then add more if it's not green enough.

3. Add the food coloring to your glass BEFORE you pour the beer in. It mixes better that way, so don't need to use a spoon or slosh it around. (If you want to mix MASS quantities, here's how to do it with kegged beer. And here are three natural ways to dye your beer green without food coloring.)(Betty Crocker)

 

Happy National Potato Chip Day! They're One of Our Top Guilty-Pleasure Foods

Today isn't just National Pi Day. It's also National Potato Chip Day. And a new study found they're one of the top five foods we feel GUILTY for eating.

Ice cream is #1, followed by chocolate . . . candy . . . cookies . . . and potato chips.

Here are five more stats on food and guilt . . .

1. The average American feels guilty for 29% of the food they eat. So almost a third.

2. The average person feels guilty for 20 minutes, then moves on. That means you spend about three-and-a-half days a year feeling guilty about what you eat.

3. Dinner is the meal we're most likely to feel guilty about. And we feel guiltier about SNACKING than eating an actual meal.

4. Half of us think certain foods are seen as MALE or FEMALE foods. The three MOST "female" foods are salad, cupcakes, and fresh fruit. The top three "guy" foods are beef jerky, burgers, and steak.

5. The top five things that cause food guilt are knowing something's unhealthy in general . . . knowing there's too much sugar . . . overeating . . . knowing there's a lot of fat . . . and being unhappy with your weight.
