Proposed changes that would require stores to carry more varieties of food to participate in the SNAP program are causing concern. Some small convenience stores feel like the requirements are unrealistic and will cause them to drop out of the program, leading to less food access for low income consumers in food deserts. 

In other news, in Finland, Burger King is trying out saunas built for large parties with some even including big screen TVs. 

And what about all those vintage foods people still love to find online? We discuss nostalgic foods and their success online.
