The original Coca-Cola recipe, dated 1943, has allegedly been found ... by a Georgia man who's auctioning it off and asking for eight figures in return.

Cliff Kluge claims he got the original Coke formula from a box of papers he purchased at an estate sale. It's on eBay for $5 million (Buy It Now for $15M)!

The authenticity of the formula has not been confirmed:

"You don't stumble on things like this very often," he said. "It's a letter, and a formula, and the processes to make it. I think it's a little deeper than having fun"

"I think it's the original recipe for Coca-Cola."

If it weren't for a shared photo of a juicy steak - known as "food porn" in social media parlance - a major identity theft ring would still be operational.

Food Porn Thieves!

Nathaniel Troy Maye, 44, and Tiwanna Tenise Thomason, 39, were arrested after a photo he posted online led police to Morton's steakhouse in Ft. Lauderdale.

Maye, from Harlem, and Thomason, from Miramar, Fla., were being tracked by investigators after an anonymous person recently tipped off the IRS.

McDonald’s is adding three new Quarter Pounders to its menu and phasing out Angus offerings as it looks to focus its attention on one of its most popular brands.

3 New Quarter Pounders!

The company says the new burgers will replace its meatier Angus third-pounders, which were among the most expensive items on its menu at around $4 to $5.

The Quarter Pounders will come in two of the same varieties as the Angus burgers, Bacon and Cheese and Deluxe, and Habanero Ranch as well.

The new Quarter Pounder line will use a bun that has eight grams of whole grains, while original Quarter Pounders will stay with their regular bun.

McDonald’s will roll out the new items nationally in mid-June.

Taco Fusion, which opened three months ago in Tampa, has been doing solid business due to its unique fare, but customers apparently drew the line at a lion taco.

Katie Couric has perfected the art of easy conversation on TV.

Easy, nutritious meals for her kids? That's more challenging.

Everyone knows that lamb is the best meat ever. That's a given, right?

Which is why this news is so, so heartbreaking: China's Ministry of Public Security has announced that it caught a group of meat traders selling rat, fox, and mink meat as lamb.

Gross.

Rat

China is famously riddled with food-related scandals, with the Ministry trying to project a proactive image in the wake of this latest one.

63 arrests were made in connection to the scandal.

Needless to say you should continue to use actual lamb in your lamb recipes. How would you feel if you found out that delicious Gyro you were eating was actually made of Ratatouille (the character, not the yummy side dish)?
