Pumpkin spice Kraft Dinner is now a thing. Is nothing safe?
Just when you thought pumpkin spice had already crept into every imaginable product, we are reminded that nothing – nothing – is safe from its spicy scourge. Enter Kraft Dinner: pumpkin spice edition. But according to the company, “it ain’t no basic batch.” The mac itself uses the classic Kraft Dinner sauce infused with “hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and ginger.” “KD has always been known for its one of a kind cheesy taste and after years of watching Canadians get excited for pumpkin spice season, we felt that it was time to combine the two iconic flavours and create Pumpkin Spice KD,” said Kraft Heinz Canada Senior Brand Manager of Brand Building & Innovation, Brian Neumann in a press release. “Canadians have always made KD their own way and not many people would expect KD to be part of the PSL conversation, but that’s the whole point. Only 1000 will be made. So, move over lattes and muffins, PSKD is the must try new flavour this fall.” While even the company admits it may appear to be trolling the public with the new flavour, Kraft assures us that the “spicy cheesy treat” is, in fact, very real. Kraft has yet to announce when the limited-edition treat will be available, but those feeling curious (or snacky) can visit PumpkinSpiceKD.com and add their names to a waitlist to be sure they don’t miss the opportunity to stock up. However, there is a caveat. Only one thousand of the specially-flavoured snacks will be available, although each winner will receive a prize pack including “KD, a Pumpkin Spice Boost Pack, a fork, and of-course a signature white coffee style cup with your name written on it (spelled wrong of course).” Of course.

Ellen DeGeneres makes her return after toxic workplace allegations, but is she actually sorry?
The Ellen DeGeneres Show returned for its 18th season on Monday after being hit with a series of toxic workplace allegations over the summer. In a  Buzzfeed News  investigation in July, dozens of the show’s former employees shared stories of racism, sexual harassment and general misconduct they experienced from their managers. At the time, series studio WarnerMedia launched an investigation into the claims, which led to the firing of executive producers Ed Glavin and Kevin Leman, and co-executive producer Jonathan Norman. Many of those who shared their stories said they didn’t feel DeGeneres was aware of all that went on behind the camera. Monday’s premiere, then, had a lot riding on it. DeGeneres did apologize, claiming she had not been aware of the toxicity behind the scenes of the show, but upon learning of it, said she is helping to make the changes needed. “I learned that things happened here that never should have happened,” she said. “I take that very seriously and I want to say I am so sorry to the people who were affected. I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power and I realized that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show.” But, for the most part, her monologue was oddly peppered with jokes and sarcasm, suggesting it’s almost impossible for the once renowned “queen of kindness” to step out of the character she’s created on daytime TV and just be, well, genuine. DeGeneres began, “How was everybody’s summer? Good, yeah? Mine was great. Super terrific.” Later, she added, “Let me give you some advice out there if anybody’s thinking of changing their title or giving yourself a nickname, do not go with the ‘be kind’ lady. Don’t do it.” She also poked fun at the rumours that she does not allow her staff to make eye contact with her, saying, “I’m excited to see all of my staff and my crew. Hi, everybody. Please don’t look me in the eye. Oh, I’m kidding. But I will be passing out gum for everyone. Kidding again.” It’s not all that surprising that it would be tough for the host to pivot from her and the series’ motto “be kind.” The irony is thick, with DeGeneres having quietly been considered, for many years,  an alleged terror  – not only with her employees, but with everyone from restaurant waitstaff to former castmates. While the rumours have long been rampant, it was only this summer that they reached the surface. And, according to Buzzfeed News , her former employees are not happy about the way she’s finally chosen to address what they went through. One told reporter Krystie Lee Yandoli, “Not only did Ellen turn my trauma, turn our traumas, into a joke, she somehow managed to make this about her.” Another shared, “When she said, ‘Oh my summer was great’ and that was supposed to be funny I thought, ‘It’s funny that you had a rough summer because everyone was calling out all of the allegations of your toxic work environment and now you’re the one suffering?’” The report goes on to allege that the show’s current staff have been given little direction on what the “vision” for the new season will be moving forward as the scandal has overshadowed much of production. Based on the premiere alone, it seems DeGeneres will go back to business as usual, and future episodes will be treated as if nothing ever happened. And it’s likely this tactic will work. With her having become as massive a television figure as she has, her persona has largely been insulated from the truth. The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s audience has been loyal to her for 18 long seasons, and has long bought into the “be kind” motto. With DeGeneres in their homes every weekday afternoon for nearly two decades, it’s no surprise that her audience trusts her. But it’s unfortunate she’s taken advantage of that, as she continues to schlep what now seems a very hollow brand of kindness. “I don’t think I’m that good that I could come out here everyday for 17 years and fool you,” DeGeneres said in the premiere. “This is me, and my intention is to always be the best person I can be.” What exactly “best” means, it seems, is up for debate.

Teddy Pounds Nova Scotia With 100-Kilometre Winds And Heavy Rain
HALIFAX — The centre of post-tropical storm Teddy is expected to make landfall in eastern Nova Scotia on Wednesday morning, delivering another round of strong winds and heavy rain to a province that has already had plenty of both.At 6 a.m. local time, the centre of the storm was about 70 kilometres off the province’s eastern shore, where residents and first responders are particularly worried about flooding caused by a storm surge.The large storm was churning out winds over 100 kilometres per hour as it neared the coastline.Overnight, thousands of homes and businesses across Nova Scotia lost power.By 7 a.m., about 4,500 Nova Scotia Power customers were still in the dark, though the utility said it had already restored electricity to 16,000 customers overnight — most them in western Nova Scotia.Schools were closed, public transit in Halifax was suspended, many flights were cancelled but no major damage was reported — aside from downed and damaged trees and power lines.Watch: Teddy smashes Massachusetts with high waves. Story continues below. Citizens living in high-risk locations in the Sambro area, Peggy’s Cove and along the eastern shore were asked by Halifax Regional Municipality to make plans immediately to self-evacuate.The storm was reclassified as a post-tropical storm overnight, but that change doesn’t mean Teddy has become a weakling. The designation refers to the structure of the storm, not its strength.On Tuesday, the Canadian Hurricane Centre and provincial officials made it clear that the storm surge ahead of Teddy was their main concern, especially with 10-metre waves in the forecast.Though residents were warned to stay away from the coast, photos on social media and on web cameras showed plenty of gawkers on the rocks at Peggy’s Cove and near the sprawling beaches at Lawrencetown, an area east of Halifax.Officials in Halifax have suspended the city’s municipal bus and harbour ferry services. Garbage collection was also cancelled for Wednesday. RELATED Nova Scotia Braces For 100-Kilometre Winds As Hurricane Teddy Nears Maritimers Prepping For Hurricane Teddy Should Keep Pandemic In Mind: Expert Weather warnings were in effect for virtually all of Atlantic Canada.Nova Scotia Power has 300 crews standing by to handle power outages — 170 of them from other Atlantic provinces.The storm was expected to track over eastern Nova Scotia, the eastern half of Prince Edward Island and southwestern Newfoundland.Though residents of southwestern Newfoundland have been warned to watch for a storm surge later Wednesday, the wind and rain wasn’t expected to pose much of a threat. Marine Atlantic, the Crown corporation that operates the ferry service linking Nova Scotia with Newfoundland, has cancelled all sailings across the Cabot Strait.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 23, 2020.
