ramenburgerline.JPGFood historian Michael Krondl blames "media machines" for the ever-increasing mania over foods like Cronuts and ramen burgers. He notes that these crazes are "happening in the media capitals," where heavy Twitter use can make a line form in a matter of hours. And the "hipster foodies" forming those lines, he says, go for stuff like the ramen burger "because it appeals to their infantile food tastes, but it has a sophisticated layer on top." [Fox News]
