There are two more chances to catch the big red man before he’s back at the North Pole for last minute preparations. Breakfast With Santa in the Crystal Ballroom of the Battle House Renaissance is happening twice this month, on Saturday, Dec. 7 and Dec. 14 from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
The delicious breakfast buffet will feature scrambled eggs, bacon, link sausage, breakfast potatoes, pancakes, fresh fruit, berries, yogurt, cereal, juice, coffee and tea. Sounds delicious for any age, but this breakfast isn’t limited to kids. Grownups are welcomed to send their Christmas wishes, provided they aren’t on the naughty list. Adult prices are $25 per person while kids ages 6 – 12 eat for $12.50. If you’re 5 or younger, admission is free.
Reservations are required. Get on the good list by calling 251-338-5441.
New apple product has nothing to do with Apple
It took two decades to create. Millions of dollars have been invested in it. It’s the hottest thing to hit the apple world. No, I’m not talking about a new iPhone or MacBook. This is an actual apple.
The Cosmic Crisp, named for the little bright spots some say resemble the night sky, is a cross between the Enterprise and the Honeycrisp apple varieties developed at Washington State University. In a state that provides 70 percent of the apples sold in the U.S., the Cosmic Crisp is, surprisingly, the first apple bred there. Washington growers, who helped pay for the research and development, will have exclusive rights to sell it for the first 10 years.
They seem confident in their product, as 12 million Cosmic Crisp trees have been planted, but only 450,000, 40-pound boxes will be available this inaugural run. They estimate 2 million boxes next year and 10 times that over the next five or six years.
If you’re looking for that perfect balance of sweet versus tart, they hit shelves last Sunday. Be on the lookout as they should go fast. Pester your grocers. I need one now.
Wendy’s getting into breakfast game … again
They’ve tried it before, without much effort, but this time they are taking it seriously. As this year nears a close, we have early 2020 to look forward to Breakfast Baconators, honey butter chicken biscuits and Frosty-ccinos.
You may have never been privy to Wendy’s breakfast. When they first entered the game, franchisees needed to spend thousands of dollars on new equipment to accommodate the menu and get with the program. Support was minimal. The relaunch of Wendy’s breakfast will only require existing equipment and will break nationwide.
This competes with McDonald’s (still the breakfast king) donut sticks that came out earlier this year, and Whataburger’s new Breakfast Burger which features bacon, eggs, hash browns and cheese on an all-beef patty. To a lesser extent, it picks up where KFC left off as their Nashville Hot Chicken & Waffles limited run may be available only to the end of the year.
