Coca-Cola might be among the most recognized brands in the world, but that doesn't mean every idea they launch is a success. Coke has just announced that they're backing out of a category they tried breaking into last year, as executives say low sales make this product cut prudent.CNN reported Saturday that Coca-Cola will no longer be distributing Coke Energy in North America. Given growing consumer interest in energy drinks, Coca-Cola had ventured into the realm with its January 2020 launch of the drink in this part of the world… however, the market quickly shifted with the pandemic, and reports suggest the brand wants to recalibrate what they concentrate on.RELATED: This Is the Best Supermarket in America, New Survey SaysCommenting on the announcement that they will no longer produce Coke Energy, Coca-Cola said: "An important component to this strategy is the consistent and constant evaluation of what's performing and what's not … As we scale our best innovations quickly and effectively, like AHA and Coca-Cola with Coffee, we need to be disciplined with those that don't get the traction required for further investment."Meanwhile, in January of 2020—just weeks before the COVID-19 pandemic reached the U.S., Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey had said in an earnings call: "We're putting the full marketing muscle behind our Coke Energy launch in the US." They also spent boucou bucks advertising the energy drink during last year's Super Bowl as they billed Coke Energy as "It's the energy you want and the taste you love."Coke Energy had launched into international markets in 2019, but the brand says they will continue to distribute the drink into those territories.Meanwhile, when we evaluate what this means from a health standpoint, the North American farewell to Coke Energy is probably not a huge heartbreak. With Coke Energy's ingredients, Coke had made an honest effort to make the energy drink fit into the "functional beverages" box that has grown so popular in the past few years. Ingredients included guarana extracts, B-vitamins, and about four times the caffeine of regular Coke when comparing both in 12-ounce servings.But with 26 grams of carbs—all as sugar—and ingredients that created a taste some online buyers have described as "unusual" and "chemically," we don't think this is a Coke product most people will miss.Check out our list of the best and worst energy drinks in 2021, and also read:This Beloved Popcorn Is Being Recalled in 16 States4 Major Grocery Stores That Just Changed Their Mask RulesThe One Trick To Lose Weight Like Crazy, Celebrity Trainer SaysWhat Happens When You Drink Too Much Coke

Popcorn is one of those snacks that can be healthy and festive, especially in these warm months when small gatherings are getting safer. But if you're about to pop some popcorn for a crowd or just your family—especially if you're avoiding what's now the biggest food allergy threat—check out which major popcorn brand has just issued a recall after a customer notified them that some packages had been filled with the wrong variety in a packaging mix-up.On Wednesday, Jolly Time Pop Corn issued a voluntary recall of select Healthy Pop Kettle Corn 100's in the four-count units. Especially dangerous for lactose-intolerant consumers, the Jolly Time Healthy Pop Kettle Corn contains milk ingredients that the brand failed to declare. In their announcement published on the Food and Drug Administration's website on Thursday, Jolly Time stated: "People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the product contained inside the recalled bags."RELATED: Costco Foods You Should Always Avoid, According To NutritionistsJolly Time also says the Healthy Pop Kettle Corn products of concern were regionally distributed to select retailers and warehouses in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Wisconsin and Wyoming. The brand says they did not distribute these recalled products to any other states, but as some companies call out, sometimes it's possible that the products may be distributed beyond those points.The FDA's recall advisory states that these Jolly Time popcorn products were manufactured on January 25, 2021. In the advisory, the brand explained:The recall was initiated after JOLLY TIME was notified by a customer that certain cartons of Healthy Pop Kettle Corn 100's (4 count) were inadvertently filled with another flavor of popcorn, potentially exposing consumers to undeclared allergen: milk.They stated no reactions had been reported to date, but that consumers with a milk allergy or sensitivity should not consume the product and discard it immediately.If you're catching up on the week's grocery news, don't miss:4 Major Grocery Stores That Just Changed Their Mask RulesA Leaked Memo Shows Walmart Is Losing Customers To These Grocery ChainsThe Homemade Pet Treat Everyone Is Trying

As a Yale medicine sleep physician with over 20 years of experience taking care of patients with sleep problems, I know that a lack of sleep makes people foggy, grumpy, hungry, and less attractive to others. It increases the risk of motor vehicle crashes and chronic disease. Sleep, on the other hand, makes people feel fabulous, look great, and function at peak performance and improves overall health and wellness. Here are my top 5 tips for getting your best night's sleep. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Symptoms Everyone Needs to Know About During This Pandemic. 1 Pick a Good Time Start with figuring out your required wake-up time during the week and try not to vary it too much on the weekends. 2 Set an Alarm—But Not the One You Think Set an alarm (on your phone if you like) 8-9 hours earlier than your desired wake-up time. When the alarm goes off, turn off light-emitting devices (e.g., cell phones, e-readers, and the like) and start to wind down by doing something relaxing. Develop a pre-bedtime routine. Avoid things like alcohol or nicotine that can impact sleep. 3 Go to Bed on Time If it takes a while to fall asleep at first, don't stress or "try" to sleep; just get up and go back to your pre-bedtime ritual until you feel drowsy. RELATED: 9 Everyday Habits That Might Lead to Dementia, Say Experts 4 Don't Hit Snooze If you set a morning alarm, set it for when you need to get up. Don't use the snooze button before your wake-up time, as this will just fragment your morning sleep. A morning walk outdoors, exercise, and/or breakfast with some protein can help strengthen your circadian rhythm. Start to cut down on caffeine, especially after noon. 5 It's OK to Nap! If, for some reason, you aren't able to get enough sleep one night, it's perfectly fine to nap in the day. Just keep it relatively short (20 minutes) to avoid waking groggy and relatively early in the day (before 3 PM) to avoid making it harder to fall asleep at night.RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" Cancers 6 Why Your Best Night's Sleep is So Important Sleep deprivation is associated with decreased attention, prolonged reaction time, decreased vigilance, increased errors, decreased memory and learning, worse physical performance, and impaired mood. Medical disorders associated with lack of sleep or sleep disorders include obesity, type II diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and depression, among others. Sleep deprivation has been linked to major disasters such as the Exxon Valdez oil spill, but also increases the risk for motor vehicle crashes and work-related accidents. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that drowsy driving may result in up to 6,000 fatal crashes each year. Adequate sleep enhances attention, vigilance, performance, mood, learning, and memory and is critical for optimal health and wellness.

It seems like the Burger King brand knows how to appeal to their longtime loyal customers. While Burger King executives recently announced that they were eyeing plans to take their breakfast bigger, BK is now bringing back a chicken nugget menu item that fans loved royally a decade ago.QSR has reported that due to popular demand, Burger King will bring back their Crown-Shaped Chicken Nuggets on Monday, May 17. This will mark the first time that the fast-food chain will feature the Crown-Shaped Chicken Nuggets on their menu since they dropped them in 2011.RELATED: 7 New Fast Food Chicken Sandwiches Everyone Is Talking AboutReportedly, the white-meat nuggets will be available in a 10-piece order for the budget-friendly price of $1.49. It may sound good, but there's a catch: Burger King is testing this menu item temporarily, only until May 25, and the Crown-Shaped Chicken Nuggets are not available nationwide—in fact, at this time, they will only be available in select locations within the Miami metropolitan area.

You unwrap your favorite ice cream bar and can already taste that creamy vanilla ice cream with the hard chocolate coating. You take that first bite, mouth watering, and…OUCH!An intense, throbbing pain shoots through your molar—and throughout your entire body. Maybe you just banged your tooth. Maybe it's something worse.Occasional mouth pain may just indicate a sensitivity to hot or cold, which can become increasingly common as you get older. But different types of toothaches—and other symptoms associated with this pain—can be indicators that you're developing one of several serious health conditions that need immediate treatment.Don't just pop an ibuprofen and assume it'll go away. Read on to learn about 20 signs that indicate you need to take your tooth pain seriously. Read on, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Symptoms Everyone Needs to Know About During This Pandemic. 1 It Hurts When You Chew If your tooth sends a sharp, shooting pain when you take a bite of something, it may be cracked or damaged. If you don't remember some kind of trauma—getting hit in the mouth, biting down on a Gobstopper—this crack may have occurred from grinding your teeth at night or clenching your jaw too intensely. Exposed nerves from a cracked tooth produce this pain and if left untreated, can cause the spread of bacteria and lead to an infection.It might also hurt to chew because your tooth enamel has worn down. Tooth enamel protects your teeth's nerves from outside factors that can cause pain. If the enamel wears down, you'll notice increased sensitivity to hot or cold foods, which can cause that instant zing of pain when you chew. Depending on the pattern of your enamel disappearance, it may also be related to chronic acid reflux or a poor diet. According to a study published in the International Journal of Dentistry, dentists may be the first to diagnose gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) because they can spot these tooth erosion patterns.The Rx: A cracked tooth must be addressed immediately to prevent infection or decay. Visit your dentist so he or she can fix it. If you're experiencing a loss of tooth enamel, you'll need to examine your dietary habits and gastrointestinal health. There's no way to get tooth enamel back once it's gone, so the sooner you make healthy lifestyle changes, the less likely you are to experience pain when chewing in the future. 2 Your Gums Bleed When You Floss Bloody gums while flossing may be a sign of gum disease, a buildup of plaque and bacteria on the gums that causes your gums to recede from your teeth. According to the U.S. Department of Health And Human Services, most adults in the U.S. have some form of this disease but it's more likely to occur in adults who are 30 to 40 years of age. In the most mild cases, it results in bloody and slightly receding gums. In severe cases, it can lead to tooth loss and decay.The Rx: Regularly brushing at least twice a day and flossing once a day (don't lie to your dentist! She knows when you do!) can generally prevent gum disease. A professional deep clean once every six months can also keep this disease at bay. If your tooth pain is associated with bloody gums, visit your dentist. He or she may suggest additional oral health care, such as a daily mouthwash, or a procedure to save your teeth in severe cases. 3 You Feel an Intense Throbbing Pain An intense, throbbing pain in your tooth that isn't associated with eating may indicate you're dealing with a tooth infection. A tooth infection occurs when bacteria invades the tooth's pulp, which is the inner part of the tooth, where the connective tissue, nerves, and blood vessels are located. Infections are serious because they can spread to other parts of your body if left untreated. According to the Mayo Clinic, poor dental hygiene, dry mouth, or a diet that's high in sugar can cause a tooth infection.The Rx: If you're feeling an intense, throbbing pain in your tooth, make an emergency dentist appointment as soon as you can. Your dentist needs to treat the infection so it doesn't spread, which may mean draining the abscess and prescribing antibiotics. 4 You Feel Pressure If your tooth pain is associated with pressure, it may indicate that your wisdom teeth are giving you trouble. According to a study by Dr. Jay W. Friedman, DDS, MPH, 10 million wisdom teeth are extracted every year in the United States. Your wisdom teeth do most of their growing and changing when you're 16 to 23 years of age.If they seemed to grow normally throughout these years, your dentist at the time may have opted to let them stay in. However, when you get older, they can still begin to crowd your other teeth. If your wisdom teeth grew in at an angle, they're more susceptible to infections or tooth decay, which can cause other problems in your mouth if they aren't taken out.The Rx: Go see your dentist so he or she can take x-rays of your mouth and see what's going on with your wisdom teeth. If they're starting to crowd your other teeth or don't look healthy, you may need to get them removed for your tooth pain and pressure to finally go away. 5 Your Mouth Is Dry Saliva protects you from bacteria and a dry mouth can exacerbate any problems you're having with your teeth, since it allows bacteria to grow; the bacteria has a perfect environment to thrive in. Dry mouth can be caused by certain medications and can make it hard to spit, talk, or speak.The Rx: According to the National Institute on Aging, you should avoid cigarettes, alcohol, and caffeine because they can make your dry mouth worse. Practice regular brushing and flossing and try to keep your mouth salivated by sipping water or sucking on sugar-free hard candy. Visit your dentist immediately so he or can find the source of your tooth pain. Your dentist can also prescribe medications to counteract your dry mouth and keep your teeth healthy. 6 Your Jaw or Neck Are Swollen If you recently underwent dental surgery, your jaw may swell a bit as you heal. However, if you haven't had any work done recently and you notice a swelling of your jaw or neck in addition to your tooth pain, it can be a sign that you have a tooth abscess. Your tooth is infected and has caused a buildup of pus and bacteria, which has spread to your jaw or neck. The infection can also spread to other teeth, surrounding bones, and in severe cases, your ears or brain.The Rx: If your tooth pain is accompanied by jaw or neck swelling, you need to seek emergency dental treatment. An abscess never goes away on its own. Your dentist must provide treatment, which may involve a root canal or tooth extraction, and you may need to take antibiotics to stop the infection from spreading. 7 You Notice a Chip Any tooth you have is susceptible to chipping, but according to a study published by the Journal of Endodontics, the lower second molar is the most frequently chipped tooth. This may be because it takes the most pressure when you chew or bite down. If you don't address the chip in your tooth, you may suffer from extreme sensitivity to hot and cold foods and a toothache forever. A chipped tooth can indicate that your roots and nerves are exposed to the air, making your mouth extremely sensitive to anything it comes in contact with.The Rx: Visit your dentist as soon as you can for a treatment plan to fix your chipped tooth. He or she may suggest a crown, bonding, or a veneer to make your tooth whole again. Not only will this alleviate your tooth pain, it'll also help improve your smile. 8 Your Tooth Feels Loose If you have tooth pain and the tooth itself feels loose, it's a sign of advanced gum disease, also called periodontal disease. We already know how bad this disease is for your mouth and the trouble it can cause when it spreads, so it's important to get it taken care of right away. A loose tooth can also occur if you have a cavity or tooth decay that you haven't had treated.The Rx: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 1 in every 5 adults who are aged 65 or older have lost all of their teeth. Don't become a statistic! Visit your dentist so he or she can figure out if you have periodontal disease or cavities. The sooner you get treatment for the problem, the more likely it is your tooth can be saved. 9 Your Jaw Is Sore or Clicking A jaw that's consistently sore or that clicks when you open your mouth may indicate that you're developing temporomandibular joint disorder, commonly referred to as TMJ. This disorder can occur if you clench or grind your teeth frequently. It may also be a result of arthritis or simply caused by genetics. According to the Mayo Clinic, in addition to a sore or clicking jaw, you may also feel:Pain around your ears.Difficulty chewing.Locking of the jaw, making it hard to open or close your mouth.Facial pain.This condition can lead to the worsening of arthritis, jaw injury, or damage to the connective tissues around the jaw.The Rx: Make an appointment with a specialist if your jaw is sore, clicking, or generally causing you pain. He or she can provide you with strategies to combat or alleviate the symptoms of TMJ. He or she may also take an x-ray to understand the extent of your TMJ and surgery may be recommended if it's severe. 10 The Pain Is Dull and Consistent A constant and persistent toothache is not only annoying, it can also be a sign of something more serious. If your consistent pain is centralized to one area and accompanied by swollen or inflamed gums, it could indicate you have a foreign substance stuck in your gums. Try to floss thoroughly and see if you feel better.If your dull pain is generalized throughout your entire mouth, it may mean you're grinding your teeth at night. This can be dangerous because it can lead to chipped or broken teeth or the onset of TMJ.The Rx: Try to record when and where you feel this dull, consistent toothache. Visit your dentist so he or she can investigate further and provide you with the right treatment. Your dentist might find an infection or abscess that needs to be treated. If teeth grinding is to blame, he or she or may recommend wearing a nightguard.RELATED: The #1 Cause of Obesity, According to Science 11 Your Gums Look Inflamed Inflammation is an indicator that your body is fighting off bacteria and infection, and inflamed gums along with tooth pain are clear signs that you have gum disease. If your gums are swollen, your gum disease may already be severe and regular brushing and flossing just won't cut it. According to a study published in the Journal of Periodontology, women who carried bacteria that's known to cause periodontal disease were more likely to have more severe oral bone loss than women who didn't carry these pathogens.The Rx: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, severe gum disease affects about 9% of adults and it can ruin your oral bones and gums, leading to tooth loss. It must be treated by a dentist, so you'll need to make an appointment right away to seek treatment. 12 You're Sensitive to Hot and Cold Mild sensitivity to hot and cold is normal for many people, especially as you age. However, intense, throbbing pain when biting into hot or cold food is something to be concerned about.According to Dr. Mark S. Wolff, DDS, Ph.D., from Penn Dental Medicine, this sensitivity may be due to an exposure of the root structure in one or more of your teeth. This leaves the nerves of your teeth completely exposed, so it makes sense that hot or cold would trigger a painful reaction.The Rx: Be sure you aren't brushing too hard and try to stay away from extremely hot or cold foods. Use a toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth and go see your dentist as soon as possible to see if you have exposed roots that can be fixed.RELATED: I'm A Doctor And Warn You Never Take This Supplement 13 Your Alignment Has Changed Although they're attached to your jawbone with a periodontal ligament and cementum, your teeth can move and shift in your mouth at any time. According to the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), teeth generally move forward with age, but other factors can cause them to move faster.A decrease in tooth enamel can affect the movement of your teeth, the alignment of your bite, and even the shape of your pearly whites. As your teeth move, change, and shift, they can create small spaces and crevices that are hard to reach with floss or a toothbrush. This makes it easy for bacteria to grow, which can cause gum disease and infection. Your tooth alignment change may be what's causing your toothache to begin with.The Rx: If bacteria has caused tooth pain, your dentist will need to get involved. You may need an antibiotic and a deep cleaning to prevent the spread of the infection. If your alignment has changed drastically, you may need braces to prevent overcrowding or tooth damage. 14 Your Teeth Look Flat and Worn Down If you notice that your teeth look flat and worn down, you might be grinding them at night. This condition is also referred to as bruxism and according to the American Sleep Association, it affects 10% of adults and 15% of children. It can be caused by stress or genetics and usually decreases with age for most people.You may not even realize you grind your teeth at night, but jaw or tooth pain, along with a flatter bite can be good indicators that you're a nightly grinder. Bruxism can wear down your enamel, cause TMJ, and in some severe cases, it can even break your teeth.The Rx: Try to eliminate possible stressors from your life so you can get more restful sleep. You'll also need to consult your dentist about teeth grinding. If he or she agrees with your diagnosis, you may be fitted for a custom mouthguard to wear at night. This will prevent your teeth from making contact and can save you from broken teeth, tooth pain, or a sore jaw. 15 You Also Have a Fever A fever along with tooth pain indicates an infection. If you notice pain in a centralized location, there may be a tooth or gum infection from a food particle or a buildup of bacteria and plaque. You may even be able to see a bump on an area of your gums. This is an abscess that's filled with pus from the infection. In addition to your fever, you may also experience nausea and vomiting.The Rx: If your tooth pain is accompanied by a fever, your tooth infection is severe and you may need to seek emergency treatment. According to the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP), over 900,000 emergency department visits and nearly 13,000 hospital inpatient stays in one year were related to dental conditions. Your abscess may need to be drained and you may need to be placed on antibiotics. You may also be required to visit your dentist for a root canal or to get your tooth pulled if it's not salvageable. 16 You Also See White Sores in Your Mouth If you notice white sores on your mouth or tongue, it may indicate a type of oral cancer. According to the National Institute on Aging, oral cancer is more common in people over the age of 40 but it's always a good idea to have your dentist check at every exam. In 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, reported about 40,000 new cases of cancer of the oral cavity and pharyngeal cancers. Oral cancers are more common in those who smoke or drink heavily. If left untreated, oral cancer can spread to other parts of the body and be life threatening.The Rx: If you notice white spots or sores around your mouth, on your gums, or on your tongue, make an appointment with your doctor. In the meantime, avoid spicy foods, tobacco products, and alcohol. Your doctor will examine these areas and may need to biopsy them. If you're diagnosed with oral cancer, you may need to get surgery to remove these cancerous cells. You may also need to undergo additional treatment, such as radiation or chemotherapyRELATED: The #1 Cause of Obesity, According to Science 17 It Hurts When You Eat Sweets If your toothache is only brought on by sugary foods, a weakening of your tooth enamel may be to blame. Our tooth enamel disappears as we age. But if you brush too intensely or with a hard-bristled toothbrush, you could be making your tooth enamel wear off prematurely. Without this enamel protecting your teeth, the sugar in sweet foods can make direct contact with the nerve endings in your teeth, causing you pain.The Rx: Ask your dentist about your sensitivity to all things sweet. You may need to use a toothbrush with softer bristles and you may need to adapt a more gentle brushing technique. Your dentist may also suggest toothpaste specifically designed for sensitive teeth to ensure the rest of your enamel isn't threatened.RELATED: 9 Everyday Habits That Might Lead to Dementia, Say Experts 18 Your Breath Smells Bad If your tooth pain is accompanied by bad breath that won't go away, it's another indicator that you're suffering from gum disease. When bacteria grows on your gum line and your gums begin to recede from your teeth, it can produce an unpleasant smell. Even if you don't notice any changes in your gum line, your dentist can identify gum disease with a tiny ruler that measures small pockets in your gums.While bad breath doesn't seem like a threat to your health, gum disease and a mouth full of bacteria can increase your risk for serious health conditions. According to the Mayo Clinic, poor oral health can be linked to an increased risk for:Endocarditis. Excessive mouth bacteria can cause an infection in the inner lining of your heart chambers or valves.Pregnancy and birth complications. Severe gum disease may be linked to low birth weight and premature birth.Cardiovascular disease. Some scientists believe there's a link between gum disease and heart disease, stroke, or clogged arteries.Pneumonia. If certain mouth bacteria are pulled in your lungs, it can cause pneumonia or other respiratory conditions.The Rx: If you have chronic bad breath, visit your dentist for a thorough cleaning and x-rays. If gum disease is the culprit, you need to stick to a stricter oral health routine that includes regular flossing and brushing. Regular cleanings and checkups are also important to prevent gum disease from getting worse. Your dentist may be able to prescribe mouthwash or toothpaste designed to kill the bacteria causing your gum disease and bad breath. 19 It Hurts When You Suck in Air If you feel pain when you suck in air, it means your tooth enamel is worn away, which can be an indication that you have a cavity. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 90% of adults aged 20 to 64 years had at least one cavity. Cavities occur when plaque and tartar are left on your tooth enamel. As bacteria consume this plaque and tartar, acid is produced, which wears away at your tooth enamel and creates a tiny hole in your tooth.This tiny hole can be the source of that sharp pain you feel as your suck in air or bite down on food. In some cases, however, you may not even feel pain when you have a cavity. If left untreated, cavities can lead to tooth decay or an infection.The Rx: Once you have a cavity, there's no home remedy to get rid of it. You must visit your dentist so he or she can drill out the decay within the hole and replace it with a filling.RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" Cancers 20 Your Filling or Crown Is Cracked If the source of your tooth pain is a cracked or damaged filling or crown, don't ignore it.
