The Puck Stops Here: Wolfgang Pulls the Self-heating Latte

A year ago we got all overcaffeinated about the Wolfgang Puck instant self-heating Latte, thinking it just about the worst idea ever. Turns out Wolfgang may be beginning to think so too- he has asked that they be pulled from the shelves. Evidently there have been reports of exploding, melting or overheating and it has just become too hot to handle. There is also a commercial dispute about actually paying the manufacturer for them. We are pleased that Wolfgang has seen the light and relieved that we can now go back to Spago. ::New York Times
