Beyond Meat and PepsiCo have launched their first product, Beyond Meat Jerky, after announcing their partnership last year.

As you consider your travel plans this year, Air New Zealand has announced they will offer direct flights from Auckland to New York City for the first time in September, creating one of the longest direct flights currently available. Tickets are currently available on Air New Zealand’s website. If you need help making the roughly 18-hour flight more convenient, you may want to consider our recommendations for travel pillows, travel mugs and weekender bags. Also, the TSA still requires you to wear a mask on an airplane: We’ve also recommended the best KN95, N95 and disposable masks. Even if New Zealand isn’t your preferred destination, we looked into United Airlines Credit Card offers that can help you rack up points. Traveling by car instead? These highly-rated dash cams can help give you some peace of mind.

The set includes a 1.5-quart bowl, 3-quart bowl, 5-quart bowl and vacuum seal lids with date setting dials. The bowls have non-slip rubber bases and HexClad says they can be used for mixing, prepping and storing food. The bowls and lids are both dishwasher safe (the lids need to be on the top rack), according to the company. We’ve previously recommended HexClad products as Father’s Day gifts and have covered food storage extensively, most notably through Stasher’s bags and bowls.
