DestapaBanana, perhaps one of the more brilliant food creations of our time, allows you to fill a banana with chocolate, caramel, yogurt, or prepackaged filling of your choice (and no, despite its suspicious appearance, it is not a sex toy). The Argentinian contraption slices out the middle of the banana and inserts the new filling in its place. The company’s website boasts, “in each banana you eat in your favorite restaurant in your neighborhood, city, or country, there is a world of fun, joy, surprises, health, vitality, nutrition and much, much more awaiting.” Well, that isn’t exactly untrue. So far it only seems to be available in Argentina, but the product is about to launch in Switzerland, so I can only hope this gooey, semi-phallic ticket to tastebud heaven will be on its way to my local Bed, Bath and Beyond soon.

Amelia dropped a bomb on The Frisky staff today: she’s never heard of puppy chow. “What, is it supposed to look like dog food?” she asked. Oh, silly Amelia! We explained puppy chow is a variation on Chex mix where you combine melted chocolate or syrup with candy and add yummy ingredients to give it different flavors. It’s popular at Girl Scout bake sales everywhere!
Puppy chow also goes by the names reindeer food, muddy buddies and (inexplicably) snowman poop, so I don’t blame her for being confused. I did some deep Pinterest-ing and found 17 different puppy-snow-reindeer-poop recipes to help Amelia get with the program and give myself some snacking ideas. Dig in!
