Who Won The Week — 05/29/22

The idea behind Who Won the Week is to give you the opportunity to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.

Don’t you hate it when your tacos, burritos, or wraps come apart as you’re eating them, making a mess and dripping all over your shirt or pants? I know I do. That’s why this week’s Who Won the Week winner is a team of students at Johns Hopkins University. They have created a unique solution for one of dining’s greatest frustrations: the burrito or wrap that keeps falling apart.

As part of Engineering Design Day at Johns Hopkins University, a group of students created Tastee Tape, an adhesive meant to keep burritos, wraps, and similar food intact.

They tested a variety of ingredients before choosing the combination that was edible and safe, but strong enough to contain larger wraps.

“First, we learned about the science around tape and different adhesives, and then we worked to find edible counterparts,” said a Johns Hopkins senior majoring in engineering who helped work on the project.

After several months of testing prototypes, the team created rectangular strips measuring half an inch by two inches. To use the tape, a strip is peeled off a sheet of wax paper, wet thoroughly, then applied to the food.

So congratulations to these ingenious students who have come up with a way of keeping it all together (“it” being tacos, burritos, and wraps).

What about you? Who (or what) do you think won the week?

If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.

    But part of the fun of eating a burrito is trying to keep it all together!

    Taking the fun and adventure from eating Mexican foods. It really does depend on the cook and how they are constructed but if it’s a mess it must be good 🙂

    I suggest the young man in Florida who gave his commencement speech about curly hair. But burritos are good!

        I thought he was brilliant. And probably more effective than if he hadn’t used a metaphor. Youth like that give me hope for the future.
