Pizza taking too long? Papa John’s Will Make Your Pizza Faster . . . For a $3 Fee

You’d like to THINK that when you order a pizza, they make it and deliver it as fast as they can. Well . . . this pretty much proves that ain’t true.

Papa John’s is running a test in a few cities right now where you can pay a $2.99 fee . . . so your pizza gets made FASTER. They’re calling it “Papa Priority.”

Quote, “There might be some situations where you would like your pizza a little faster on busy nights, when there might be a longer wait due to the number of orders at the restaurant.” So for $3, you get to jump the line.

They’re only allowing each location to take FIVE priority orders per day, so it’s not going to turn into an endless cycle of people paying $3 one after another to jump the line.

And there’s no word on if or when they’re going to expand this plan around the country.

Six Things You Shouldn’t Store in the Fridge

Six Things You Shouldn’t Store in the Fridge

flash-lit_macro_tomatoes

Here are a bunch of foods you might THINK you should keep in the fridge. But you’re better off storing them at room temperature . . .

  1.  Tomatoes, bananas, and avocados. The refrigerator DOES keep them from going bad. But it also prevents them from ripening, which kills the flavor. So just keep them at room temperature, and don’t buy them in bulk.
  2.  Potatoes. The starch starts turning into sugar when they’re in the fridge. Which messes with the texture, and makes them taste sweeter than they should.
  3.  Bread. It actually gets moldy FASTER in the fridge. And the starch crystallizes from the cold, so it gets stale faster too.
  4.  Olive oil and vegetable oil. They stay good for a long time, so there’s no reason to refrigerate them. And keeping it in the fridge makes them thicken up, so they’re harder to cook with. Which is also why you shouldn’t keep honey in the fridge.
  5.  Coffee. It loses some of its flavor in the fridge. And it slowly absorbs the smells of OTHER stuff in there, so it doesn’t taste right.
  6.  Cantaloupe and melons, until they’re cut up. Keeping whole melons at room temperature actually preserves the antioxidants better.
