Museum of Food and Drink's Meet & Greet Tweetup

BOOM! The Puffing Gun

Update: Thanks to the MOFAD team, Dave Arnold and our food community, the tweetup was a huge success. Check out the MOFAD Q&A page to see everything that was shared for you to learn all about this amazing museum. Enjoy!

Please join us on Friday, July 19th from 4 to 6 PM ET for the #mofad Q&A tweetup. We are holding this event to give you an opportunity to chat with Dave Arnold of Cooking Issues and the MOFAD team about the Museum of Food and Drink and its first pop up exhibit: BOOM! The Puffing Gun and the Rise of Breakfast Cereal.

What do you want to know about the museum or the puffing gun? Do you have any other questions you’d like to ask the MOFAD crew? Tweet your questions using #mofad anytime before and during the chat. We’ll select some to post during the tweetup. Please do your best to limit the characters to 125 to allow us flexibility for adding question prefixes.

We organized this tweetup because MOFAD is going to change the way we learn about food and they won't succeed without our community support. They only have until 9 PM on Saturday, July 20  to fund the effort on Kickstarter. Please take the time to check out the explosive video at and consider a contribution. Each and every dollar amount, no matter how big or small, counts.

Please feel free to post @mofad to find out more about their effort.
