Chipotle Is Cancelling This Major Annual Promotion

For some two decades now a Halloween costume has been able to earn Chipotle customers great deals if not outright free food, but the chain has some sad news—the festive in-person promotion is being suspended for the second year in a row, according to USA Today.

The reason for the cancellation is not due to lack of popularity with customers or the company's enthusiasm for the promotion—the in-person portion of the annual Boorito celebration is off in the name of safety during the ongoing pandemic.

Whereas in years past, customers who wore a costume to a Chipotle on Halloween or on days leading up to it could get menu items for very low prices (Boorito-discounted were $3 up through 2017, rising to $4 thereafter), this year there are no savings offered for showing up to one of the chain's restaurants in costume. But there is still a way to enjoy savings or even potential free food this Halloween season.

Chipotle has partnered with the online gaming platform Roblox to create the Chipotle Boorito Maze, interactive maze users can navigate while their online avatar wears a Chipotle-themed costume, such as a Burrito Mummy or Guacenstein. For four days, from October 28 through the 3, the first 30,000 users to successfully navigate the virtual maze will get a code valid for a free burrito, according to Roblox.

And even those who don't manage to complete the maze fast enough (or don't bother to try at all) can enjoy Halloween-related savings. From 5 p.m. through closing on Halloween day, anyone ordering via the Chipotle app or website can use the promo code BOORITO for a $5 burrito.  Those codes will remain useable through November 14, and they are limited to one per customer.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That! "Anything that's substantially less [than the 7.4% increase] is a deal," said Lempert. "When you

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw

When the coronavirus stay-at-home orders began in March, most people's lives changed in immeasurable ways. At the time, we were bombarded with (admittedly, very helpful) advice on how to cope with anxiety , should we experience it during this time of social distancing and sheltering in place. But with restrictions slowly starting to ease in many parts of the world, there are many people who have seen an increase in anxiety all over again, this time about leaving their homes and reentering society. Posts about people's growing anxiety have been popping up around social media for the past couple of weeks, and it's given rise to the term "reentry anxiety." We wanted to find out exactly what reentry anxiety is, whether it's normal to be experiencing trepidation about leaving your stay-at-home orders, and how to cope if you are feeling anxious.
