Sometimes we find juicy news not worthy of a full blog post, yet too darn good to not share with you. These “Tasty Tidbits” are digestible bites of news about new names and what we think of them here at Eat My Words. Bon Appetit!

drank is the past tense drink that comes to us promising us that it will “Slow your roll” with a combination of valerian root, melatonin and rose hips. We are getting sleepy already.

We hope we didn’t spoil your dinner.
