The Lempert Report

Sally: Yes. And it's, you know, it's more, it was built more to be a virtual food hall. So it's, it's set up more for people ordering online and food being delivered out. It sounds really smart because a lot of people are not ready to go back and get into crowded spaces and, you know, eat together. People have gotten more into ordering their food, but I think we all miss that, that exciting part of going into a food hall and having all of these choices and, you know, each member of your family being able to, or your group, try something different. And what's really exciting to me is that this seems like we talk about the metaverse a lot. This seems like a really exciting opportunity for, for a virtual food hall to happen within the metaverse, because people can actually socialize while they go in and try different foods and order different things. 

Phil: Yeah. And what they have is, you know, sushi, Southern inspired pies and thighs, and I'm not familiar with that chain. I don't know if you are. Dim sum and moon bowls. Yeah,and you know there's other Little Caesar's Pizza is actually going in there as well. So that should be interesting. I also, you know, you mentioned TikTok earlier and I wanted to bring this up. The the most popular TikTok food trend is actually not dirty soda, cuz I think you said that that was 1.3 million followers or views on that. The number one, can you guess what the number one is Sally? 

Sally: I don't think I can. I haven't been reading those trends lately. 

Phil: Okay. So it's, it's 3.2 billion with a B views 3.2 billion views and it's cloud bread 

Sally: Cloud bread. Yes. 

Phil: That's the number one. And, and to me, you know, the whole idea, this whole cloud print thing, you know, and again, you've gotta make it yourself. It's made with egg whites, cream of tartar, sometimes cream cheese, sometimes cottage cheese. There's a whole bunch of, of recipes on the internet for cloud bread. If you want, it has half the calories of regular bread, no carbs, but it's high in saturated fat because of what it is. And it's high in protein because of the fact that it's high in saturated fat. So for me, 3.2 billion views on cloud bread is just amazing to me. 

Sally: We tried it here at our house a year and a half ago, I think. And it was, it was a disaster.
