Burritos and coffee

Scooter’s Coffeehouses, located throughout the Midwest, now offer hand-rolled breakfast burritos from Longmont’s Burrito Kitchen. With 84 locations and growing, Scooter’s could become a significant distribution channel for the local burritos, which are already sold to wholesale food distributors, restaurants, cafes, country clubs, institutions and premium grocers.

‘Chaice’ cream

Some believe spicy foods cool the body during hot weather, and Boulderbased Bhakti Chai has sweetened the burn with its new chai ice cream. Using organic, fresh-pressed ginger juice, organic cardamom and its signature spice blend, Bhakti joined with Boulder Ice Cream to create Bhakti Chai Chip.

According to Bhakti, the new flavor has a “slight tingle” from the ginger and sweetness from the cardamom cream and chocolate chips.

Turn spam into real food

Through its “No Junk” campaign, Chipotle Mexican Grill is encouraging Americans to forward their junk e-mails to nojunk@chipotlejunk.com. Each forwarded e-mail will help provide nutritious meals for school children around the country in partnership with the nonprofit organization The Lunch Box (www.thelunchbox.org).

For every 100,000 junk e-mails Chipotle receives, the company will donate $10,000 to The Lunch Box, which will help give approximately 32 million school children at 100,000 schools nationwide access to 100 school-tested, junk-free recipes created by Chef Ann Cooper, also known as the Renegade Lunch Lady. The “No Junk” campaign is slated to run through August, or until Chipotle reaches its goal of receiving 500,000 junk e-mails.

No e-mail addresses will be automatically captured when junk e-mail is submitted through this campaign, and the content of e-mails will not be read. People who participate in the program will have the opportunity to opt in to Chipotle’s e-mail list, learn more about Chipotle, or link to www. TheLunchBox.org to learn more about that organization and its programs. Visit www.chipotle.com for more information.
