Considered one of the most influential ladies of all time, Nancy Reagan passed away at age 94 on March 6. Her death was caused by congestive heart failure, as stated by ABC News. She is planned to be buried next to her husband, Ronald Reagan, who died in 2004. One of Nancy’s requests preceding her death was that people contribute to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Foundation rather than placing flowers by her grave, according to Fox News.

shelves with pre-peeled oranges, individually sold in plastic containers. The fruit has the same, citrusy taste and is now more convenient to eat. These peeled oranges are being sold for $6, which may strike customers as a lot for an orange, but someone has to peel them, and thankfully, it’s not us.

Even “Foodies” Didn’t Know These Foods Existed

While the food trend of 2016 appears to be nothing but healthy, these three foods put the health craze to the test:

    and breakfast into one. The classic everything topping- sesame seeds, pepitas, poppyseeds and faint onion and garlic taste- are sprinkled on top of a frosted donut, giving that beloved sweet and salty taste. NYC is known for their crazy delicious desserts, and this Everything Donut is definitely making its way to the top.

  • Funfetti Airhead– When you mix a classic childhood flavor with a classic childhood candy, what do you get? The funfetti airhead. This limited edition candy consists of a

    vanilla flavor with colorful specks throughout it. Replicating funfetti frosting, this airhead doesn’t fail to bring that very sweet birthday cake flavor.
