(He only joined TikTok in December but already has over 14,000 followers.) “Music and fashion are my life,” Annoni says of his love for performance style.

When the pandemic hit, it brought a lot of changes, large and small. Now, as the vaccines roll out and there appears to be a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel, some of our favorite things are slowly coming back. Case in point, Costco is bringing back its iconic samples and food courts.

Costco's CFO, Richard Galanti, told CNN Business that they anticipate the triumphant return of their food courts, but warns that "it's going to take some time," as some states are still being understandably cautious and keeping safety restrictions in place.

  The startup behind MrBeast Burger explains the business of influencer 'ghost kitchens' This week's rundown includes media brands that have surged on TikTok by studying the app's trends and making their employees stars.In this week's edition:

a pizza sitting on top of a wooden table: There are 350 slices of pizza consumed every second in the United States, and the average American eats pizza at least once a month. Crust, cheese, and sauce: What’s not to love about a good, old-fashioned slice? Pizza has been a staple of the American diet since the late 19th century and was named the fastest-growing segment of casual restaurant chains in 2017. How much does America love pizza? $45.1 billion in annual sales should give you a rough idea.  Those of us who do not live in New York and Chicago know there’s much more to the story than the two-city debate for supremacy. Regional styles abound, from New Haven, Detroit, and Philadelphia, to Arizona and California staples. Some are classic fast-food franchises, customizable and deliverable to our doorsteps in less than 60 minutes; others are brick-and-mortar family joints whose popularity necessitated expansion into every corner of the contiguous States.  You’ll find plenty of mouth-watering trivia and information within this list whether you are a self-proclaimed aficionado or a health-conscious one-per-month consumer. You could figure that the Holy Trinity of commercialized express companies—Domino’s, Papa John’s, and Pizza Hut—fall somewhere in the top 10 on this list, but can you guess in what order? What about the name of the iconic brick-oven New York pizza company that has somehow found its way into areas like Idaho, Wisconsin, and Arizona?  And let’s not forget the idiosyncrasies in between: a children’s playhouse that coexists as a 600-franchise pizza joint; a Texas buffet-style restaurant experience that dishes out a macaroni and cheese pie; a fast-casual chain only in operation since 2011 that not only churns out 180-second pizzas, but drove over $1 million in sales per unit six years later.  To help you find your next favorite slice, Stacker looked through the Pizza Magazine Quarterly Power Report and rounded up the 50 biggest pizza chains in the country.

As those restrictions lift, Costco's indoor food courts and samples will return, although things may look a little different. The company stopped serving free food samples and shut down their food courts at the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. As the pandemic rolled on, the wholesale club slowly reintroduced demos and started offering a scaled-back, take-out only menu at their food courts. For a while it was only hot dogs and pizza, then chicken made a triumphant return, followed by ice cream, smoothies, and churros. According to CNN's interview with Galanti, cooked items like breakfast sandwiches, noodle dishes, and meatballs are next.

As for samples, according to Eat This Not That, they are slowly coming back, too, which is great news for anyone used to snacking while shopping. Of course, the samples will look a little different. An Instagram post from @CostcoDeals shows the revamped sample table with tasty treats packed up in to-go bags next to a sign saying they are "carry out only," and should not be eaten inside. When it comes to free food, we will eat wherever they say.

"The Korean Vegan, for much of its existence, has been about so much more than the recipes.""I think a lot of us tend to associate Korean food with meat, like Korean barbecue or grilled pork belly. One way that The Korean Vegan tackles those stereotypes is saying you don't need to have meat to eat authentic Korean food," she told me, her voice as full of warmth and passion as it is in her videos.
