Introducing the New(ish) Sweetener That We're Adding to Everything

  Introducing the New(ish) Sweetener That We're Adding to Everything If you've been in the healthy game for a while, you know that it feels like Christmas morning when you find a sweet snack that fits with your lifestyle. But when we heard about Lakanto monk fruit sweetener being a healthy sugar alternative (possibly even better than Stevia), we just had to learn more about it. Lakanto sweetener is (keto) diet-friendly, even though it comes from a fruit, which is typically a no-no. Even Starbucks is jumping on the trend.

For the 23rd edition of the Hot List —our picks of the year's top hotel openings—these 75 outstanding winners represent not just the vanguard of the world, but where travelers are headed next.

Summer doesn't officially begin until Taste of Country's annual Summer Hot List comes out! OK, maybe that's an overstatement, but the songs, tours and Superstars like Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban and Luke Bryan will make this list , as will newcomers like Kane Brown, Danielle Bradbery and Maren Morris.

The term hot is not something we throw around lightly at Condé Nast Traveler. Every year, we vet hundreds of new hotels that swing open their doors promising all sorts of industry catnip: raw-silk Italian sheets, customized Ayurvedic dining, views of some blindingly cerulean bay that no human has ever woken up to before. Most of these openings are good. Many of them, great. But only a fraction are what we’d deem hot. To determine this, we’ve cultivated an army of the most discerning hotel sleuths—Traveler staff as well as a network of trusted contributors across six continents that we call on year-round—to make sure that nary a perfectly mixed lobby bar old-fashioned nor unfluffed swan-down pillow goes undocumented. We arm our scouts with a survey that’s been developed and refined over the past 22 years, with questions that get at the practical (Is the Wi-Fi signal strong enough to download a movie? What’s the must-order on the room service menu?) and the emotional, or even sociological (How does the hotel make you feel? Is there a lobby vibe? What celeb can you imagine hanging out at the pool?). We then cull close to a thousand pages of hotel dossiers to come up with our final list. This year, 102 properties, fewer than 25 percent of the hotels we CSI-ed, made the cut.

A 'Sayonara Tax' Will Charge Anyone Who Wants to Leave Japan—Tourists and Citizens Alike

  A 'Sayonara Tax' Will Charge Anyone Who Wants to Leave Japan—Tourists and Citizens Alike But you might get free public Wi-Fi out of it.As Condé Nast Traveler reports, the tax will cost about $9 (¥1000), and will apply to any traveler leaving Japan by plane or ship—whether they're tourists leaving the country or Japanese residents going on vacation. Children under age 2 get a freebie, as does anyone who is just in Japan for a quick layover and is leaving the country within 24 hours of arrival.

The 121 clubs on the 2018 Hot List are a record number, a reflection not on the difficulty of being unique in an industry awash in sameness and parity, but instead a celebration that clubs from all kinds of manufacturers large and small are finding ways to help golfers improve.

A Pediatric Food Allergist Explains Nut Allergies in a Way That'll Make New Parents Sigh With Relief

  A Pediatric Food Allergist Explains Nut Allergies in a Way That'll Make New Parents Sigh With Relief While some people could happily survive only on peanut butter, others can go straight into anaphylactic shock if the nuts are in the same room as them. So as parents, figuring out if your baby has nut allergies can be anxiety-inducing. We spoke with David Stukus, MD, pediatric allergist at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Ohio, to help put parents' minds at ease when it comes to introducing peanut products to their kiddos."The vast majority of parents do not need to worry about anything prior to feeding their infant peanut products or any other allergenic foods for the first time," he told POPSUGAR.
