A Confectionary King Has Passed Away. Charles E. Entenmann, who took his grandfather’s business from a Brooklyn bakery to grocery store shelves around the country has passed away. He was 92 years old. Charles grew up working alongside his two brothers on the line in the family’s North Shore bakery.  The trio worked to grow their brand that is known for 100+ products packaged in the famous white boxes we all know too well. The family sold the business for $233 million in 1978 and own some of the most prestigious real estate in Long Island according to Steve & Kathy. [source]

Move Over Wiz, There’s Another Cheese In Town. The folks at Billy Penn have written a compelling argument defending that Cooper Sharp is the official cheese of Philadelphia. Fans of The Preston & Steve Show agree. We heard from a listener who works at the deli counter and sings the praises of their products, another who tried it for the first time this week, and Marisa who is BFFs with the Philadelphia based company since they follow each other on Twitter. Preston is on board with the statement too, pointing out that the cheese is ideal for cooking with and tastes better than classic cheese wiz. [source]

Cheese Taste Soapy? Your Parents May Be to Blame. In a recent study, researchers found that two thirds of people say that gorgonzola has a soapy taste. They linked the association to similar chromosomes found in each of the test subjects. Add it to the list of soapy-to-some-people foods. [source]
