Welcome to the Around the World for Food-Cast. Each episode of this podcast dives deeper into one of the food stories from my blog. This week you’ll learn more about viral foods and exactly how some shot to Internet fame.
You’ll also hear from New York City foodie and viral food hunter, Dan Bennett, 21, on the lengths people go to get their hands on one of these famous creations.
Have you ever wondered how the Cronut blew up or how Christina Tosi’s Milk Bar creations shot to fame? The answer is a combination of luck, media coverage and Instagram influencers. Why does some popularity last and others fade like the rainbow bagel? Dan and I discuss this and more in “How Food Goes Viral” available now.
