Fast food innovations are hit or miss. Taco Bell is especially familiar with this truism, as they are responsible for both the Doritos Locos Taco — their most successful launch to date — and this new monstrosity, the Naked Crispy Chicken Taco. Sounds healthy, you’re probably thinking. So what’s the problem? Well, first of all, it’s not at all healthy,…

Yes Or No: Would You Eat Beer Jelly?

Hey, apparently there’s such a thing as beer jelly, which is exactly what it sounds like: Gelatinous beer. It’s made by Potlicker Kitchen in Vermont, which is run by two former archaeologists.

Tomorrow is National Donut Day! Dunkin’ Donuts and several other sellers of glazed goodness are offering free donuts, but if you can’t get to a store, why not make some of your own?

Vice Week: On Gluttony

Gluttony is an outdated sin, in my opinion. I’ve said it before: Never, ever, ever stop eating. If you stop eating, the advertisers and the tabloids and self-hatred win.
Here’s the thing: Gluttony was a sin mainly because eating too much meant depriving other people of food. And that was true, when we lived i…

The World’s Oldest Pretzel Has Ruined Pretzels For Me

Last week, the world’s oldest pretzel was found in Germany. It’s 250 years old and it looks all sorts of unappetizing. Ew.
Anyway, apparently the pretzel was found in a structure that was probably a bakery in Regensburg, a town that has a lot of history to uncover. It was firebombed during World War II,…

Taco Bell’s Cap’n Crunch Delights Are Speaking To My Mouth And Vagina
