11 Foodkinis You Probably Shouldn’t Swim In, But Can Definitely Snack On

I don't know about you, but being out in the sun for long stretches of time makes me very, very hungry. I would happily consider wearing a bikini that would both protect me from the sun and from hunger. So what if I can't wear it while I swim? At least I won't have to…

Starbucks Is Taking Beetle Juice Off The Menu

If you're a fan of any Starbucks products that have a pinkish hue (strawberry frappuccinos, raspberry swirl cakes, birthday cake pops, etc), I hate to break it to you, but you've been eating beetles. More specifically, a red food coloring made from crushed up cochineals, a tiny bug found in Latin America. But now, thank…

A new study done at Dartmouth confirmed what we already knew: Focus on food and you will probably get fat, think about sex and you are more likely to get laid.

God Save The Queen’s Pudding Bars

As I've mentioned about a billion times before, I'm totally obsessed with everything British, so when I saw these candy bars--which combine traditional British pudding flavors, chocolate, and a colorful Union Jack design--I was sold. Crafted in honor of Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee, they're swirled with fun ingredients like toffee, strawberry, white chocolate, and meringue.

Bad News, Kids: Real-Life Lickable Wallpaper Is Gross

Lickable wallpaper was one of the most deliciously weird fantasy foods dreamed up by Roald Dahl in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," and I definitely spent many hours of my childhood staring at my bedroom walls, wishing they were covered in magical fruit flavors instead of wood paneling from the 70s. Now it looks like…

A few weeks ago, I was sitting at my boyfriend's living room table, alone, in the middle of a weekday afternoon, my laptop open, trying to fend off both a cold and a bad mood. I was frustrated that I couldn't pick amongst the multiple documents I had open that required my urgent attention, and…

Breaking news in the world of flavored syrups. This April, Torani is releasing a Chicken N' Waffles flavored syrup. So now you can add that "is is chicken or is it waffles?" allure to your latte.

Triple Your Breakfast Pleasure With This Banana

This triple banana is winning. I know "winning" is a played out catchphrase at this point, but if "Bachelorette" Courtney can use it in reference to Ben Boring Flajnik, than I can use it in reference to this fabulous fruit mutation.  Seriously, how did this happen?
