Reyes Coca-Cola Bottling adds 20 eCascadias to Downey, California, site

PORTLAND, Ore. — Reyes Coca-Cola Bottling (RCCB) has added 20 zero-emission battery-electric Freightliner eCascadia Class 8 tractors to its Downey, California, site. Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) announced the delivery of the trucks on Nov. 16.

PORTLAND, Ore. — Reyes Coca-Cola Bottling (RCCB) has added 20 zero-emission battery-electric Freightliner eCascadia Class 8 tractors to its Downey, California, site. Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) announced the delivery of the trucks on Nov. 16. The eCascadias are the first zero-emission heavy-duty tractors to be incorporated into RCCB’s Downey fleet.

“Our collaboration with Reyes Coca-Cola Bottling marks a significant milestone in promoting sustainable transportation,” said David Carson, senior vice president of sales and marketing at DTNA. “The integration of Freightliner eCascadias into RCCB’s fleet showcases that business and environmental responsibility can go hand-in-hand, all while fostering innovation and efficiency.”

RCCB’s eCascadias will rely on 20 Detroit eFill commercial charging stations that have been installed at the Downey facility. To complement the charging stations, RCCB is using the Detroit Charger Management System, a software solution designed to enable efficient energy management, ultimately reducing operational costs. Working closely with Detroit eConsulting, which is comprised of a team of eMobility experts dedicated to every step of the electric truck conversion process, RCCB ensured the best possible site design and seamless integration of the eCascadias into their fleet.

According to DTNA, the 20 eCascadia tractors are expected to reduce RCCB’s diesel fuel usage by 40,000 gallons per year.

“We’re excited to roll out these 100% electric, zero-emission heavy-duty tractors as we strive toward our goal of reducing our carbon emissions in our operations by 30 percent by 2030,” said Tim Heinen, vice president of strategic infrastructure and development at RCCB. “Our electric fleet for Downey, which now includes electric semi-trucks and electric customer care vehicles, will serve customers throughout Southern California and build on our commitment to make a positive difference in our communities.”

According to a statement from DTNA, Freightliner’s eCascadias provide optimal productivity for fleets looking to make a change to efficient, zero-emission tractors. The trucks can be recharged to 80% capacity in as little as two-and-a-half to two hours and are available with a variety of battery and drive axle options that deliver a range of 155, 220 or 230 miles of travel, depending on the specific setup. These configurations “are ideal for short and regional haul routes involving depot-based charging, including the tasks of last-mile logistics, local and regional distribution, drayage, and warehouse-to-warehouse operations,” the statement notes.

“As a supporter of a greener, more sustainable future, the City of Downey congratulates Reyes Coca-Cola for incorporating electric heavy-duty trucks into its local fleet,” said Downey Mayor Claudia M. Frometa. “The increasing use of zero-emission vehicles is a benefit for everyone, which is why we appreciate being chosen as home base for these impressive trucks.”

The Last McDonald’s Still Serving Fried Apple Pies

I’m not one to moan about “the way things used to be,” but when it comes to food, oftentimes unhealthier cooking methods equal tastier products. Cases in point: Serbian fried chicken and Grandma Utz’s potato chips, both of which are fried in delicious beef tallow. And then there’s the long forgotten fried apple pie at McDonald’s, which made the switch to baked in 1992 due to health reasons and has tasted inferior ever since.

Unless you’re over 40 and/or live in Hawaii (more on that soon), you’ve probably never tasted a McDonald’s fried apple pie. Luckily, I live within 20 miles of the one McDonald’s location in the continental United States that still serves its pies fried.

Where to find the last fried McDonald’s apple pies in the continental U.S.

McDonald’s fried apple pies are nearly extinct, save for this location in Downey, California, a city in Southeast Los Angeles County. Built in 1953, the Downey McDonald’s at 10207 Lakewood Boulevard is the oldest McDonald’s still in operation. It was the second restaurant franchised by Richard and Maurice McDonald, so this place actually predates Ray Kroc’s involvement with the franchise.

And it looks like it, too. This McD’s is an old drive-up location with a design straight out of the ’50s. Off to the side is a single tall yellow arch and the chain’s nondescript, pre-Ronald mascot, Speedee, wearing a chef hat that lights up at night. A forgotten tagline, “Your kind of place,” inhabits a blue circle next to a seemingly handwritten McDonald’s sign. Taking it all in, it’s easy to forget this is a towering fast food juggernaut with roughly 40,000 locations worldwide. For a moment, McDonald’s looks like the little guy.

There are no digital order kiosks, no sleek modern fixtures, and there’s nowhere to order food indoors. While there is some seating off to the side in the form of a rotunda/mess hall area, most people choose to eat their meals standing outside the building or near their vehicles, harkening back to when fast food restaurants functioned more like drive-ins and less like DoorDash stops. I wanted to actually spend some time around this McDonald’s. It felt cozy.

So why is this Downey location the only McDonald’s franchise in the continental United States to serve fried apple pies? Perhaps it’s partly because this location is a historical fast food landmark, and the old-school apple pie is therefore all but expected at this specific restaurant. It’s important to note that not all McDonald’s locations operate under the same parameters. For example, in Hawaii, seemingly all of the McDonald’s serve fried apple pies.

Why Hawaiian McDonald’s still serve fried apple pies

In a fascinating 2019 article for Honolulu Magazine, writer Martha Cheng investigates why Hawaii McDonald’s locations serve the products they do, and why Hawaii is the only state still frying its apple pies (with the exception of the Downey location in California).

“People did not like [the baked] as much as the fried pie,” Victor Lim, a McDonald’s Hawaii franchise owner, told Honolulu Magazine. “That’s the reason we’ve been allowed to keep our fried apple pies. Our results prove that there’s a customer demand here in Hawai‘i.”

When a new McDonald’s location opens and it wants to serve a new item, it has to run the proposal past corporate headquarters—and it’s on those franchise owners to make the menu item profitable.

“That’s the same reason we get saimin, we get fruit punch, Spam, Portuguese sausage, eggs and rice,” Lim said. “We are part of the United States, but our culture is a little bit different.”

So the fried apple pies endure in both Hawaii and in Downey, where there is continual demand for it. Since I live so close to Downey, I decided to do a side-by-side taste test of the baked and fried pies to decide which is better. Luckily, there’s another McDonald’s 0.5 miles away from the Downey location serving baked pies, so both were still hot when I conducted the test. Here’s how they tasted.

The baked pie is doughy, warm, and somewhat flaky. Still, the overwhelming feeling is that the whole thing is just a little bit too soft. Real apple pie has some crust to it, some fat that flakes and crisps up while cooking the oven. This baked product, meanwhile, feels… microwaved. The filling is nice, however. McDonald’s apple pies are filled with chunks of apple, along with cinnamon, sugar, and deliciously sweet and thick pie goo. McDonald’s describes its pie crusts as being “latticed,” so some of that filling is exposed.

I’m not terribly impressed, but a warm baked McDonald’s apple pie isn’t the worst thing in the world. Much like the fries, the pie is best consumed on the spot. It’s warm, soft, and gooey, but definitely should be a tad bit sweeter. McDonald’s made its apple pies “healthier” back in 2018 by reducing their sugar content.

This fried apple pie comes in a brown box, already signifying a different experience.

The fried apple pie is basically a fruit empanada, and it’s delicious. Upon first glance, it looks rugged. The pie is a solid rectangle full of bumps and pockets of crispy bubbles. While the baked apple pie is more pale, the fried one is a deeper golden brown. Notably, the fried apple pie is not latticed; it’s a solid mass of crust with zero openings. Because of this, the center is likely to stay warmer longer.

Biting into it, the shell is crispy, slightly salty, and fatty. The inside is gooey, warm, and spiced, just like the baked, but the contrast in textures makes the fried pie sing. The fried apple pie is completely indulgent, without the evident strains to appear healthy, making it a breath of fresh air in the fast food space.

Moreover, it feels like a natural fit with California’s breakfast culture. There’s a doughnut taste to the fried crust that reminds me of the many Cambodian doughnut shops around town. The fried apple pie is the type of thing I would happily eat while driving up the 101.

McDonald’s suggests pairing its baked apple pie with ice cream, but the real move is to pair the fried pie with a McFlurry. I really wanted some ice cream to go with this, whereas the baked apple pie was far too soft to complement a cold and melty dessert.

The fried apple pie is the obvious winner here. McDonald’s baked apple pies are still better than they have any right to be, but there’s something uniquely special about the fried version.

For those of us in the continental U.S. this dessert is a relic from the past, but then again, it really shouldn’t be. For a fast food chain that sells cheeseburgers, french fries, and ice cream, it doesn’t make much sense that McDonald’s would draw the line at frying its apple pies. Back in the ’90s, fat was the enemy. But today? As we try to develop a more loving relationship with fat and embrace the chaos of fast food at its best, perhaps fried apple pies could be primed for a comeback.

SoCalGas opens hydrogen-powered demonstration home in Downey

DOWNEY, Calif. — With a chic minimalist design and xeriscaping, the two-story home on Firestone Blvd. in Downey looks like a lot of other modern residences popping up around the state. It’s what’s next to it that is completely unique.

What You Need To Know

The [H2] Innovation Experience, as the home is called, is the first in the nation to be powered with a hydrogen-fueled microgrid that uses solar panels to renewably generate hydrogen from water with zero emissions. That hydrogen is then used by a fuel cell to produce electricity that powers such things as lights and electronics and is also blended with natural gas to fuel a tankless water heater, clothes dryer, range top, oven, fireplace and barbecue.

“This is a prototype to demonstrate the art of the possible,” SoCalGas President Maryam Brown told Spectrum News 1. The [H2] Innovation Experience demonstration house is built at the utility’s Energy Resource Center, where many of its component parts were trucked in with hydrogen-powered big rigs. “Hopefully there are more opportunities to build this in different locations in the state.”

SoCalGas has set a target of becoming carbon neutral by 2045 — the same year the state of California has targeted to become net zero. As the natural gas provider for half of California, SoCalGas has a large role to play in decarbonization if it can replace the fossil fuel that currently serves as its primary commodity with a renewable replacement, thus the [H2] Innovation Experience.

A demonstration project, the home will not be lived in. Rather, it will serve as a proof of concept for homes of the future and to showcase what’s possible for the utility now as it transitions away from the natural gas that has been its lifeblood. From the water heater and stove to a fireplace and barbecue, all of the appliances in the home that would normally be powered with natural gas are instead fueled with a blend of 80% natural gas and 20% hydrogen.

Hydrogen is more sustainable than fossil fuels because it can be made without generating any emissions and makes only water vapor when producing electricity.

“Eliminating emissions from buildings is not an insignificant action,” Lieutenant Gov. Eleni Kounalakis said at the [H2] Innovation Experience opening. “Commercial and residential buildings generate an estimated 25% of emissions statewide. By slashing emissions from buildings using clean energy like solar and green hydrogen, we can take a major step in reducing emissions across the state.”

The solar, hydrogen and natural gas systems at the [H2] Innovation Experience are part of a microgrid that was constructed right next to the 2,000-square-foot house. Unlike a traditional power utility, a microgrid is a decentralized system that can power a neighborhood as opposed to an entire city. The microgrid SoCalGas is now operating in Downey is large enough to support at least 100 homes.

The [H2] Innovation Experience is one of several SoCalGas hydrogen projects. The utility is also working with the fuel cell company Bloom Energy to blend hydrogen into the heating system at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. Sunline Transit in Palm Springs operates its buses on hydrogen that SoCalGas delivers.

Last year, the U.S. Department of Energy released a notice of intent to provide $8 billion to fund regional clean hydrogen hubs nationally as called for in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law President Biden signed in 2021. The so-called H2Hubs would create localized networks of hydrogen manufacturers, infrastructure and consumers in an effort to accelerate hydrogen’s use.

The $8 billion will be spent over the next five years to support the development of four or more H2Hubs that can demonstrate clean hydrogen’s production, processing, delivery, storage and use as a model for a clean hydrogen economy.

California is likely to be one of those H2Hubs. SoCalGas is in the process of developing a first-of-its-kind project for the state called Angeles Link, which will supply hydrogen to a variety of industries, from power plants and heavy-duty manufacturing to transportation fueling stations and energy storage.
