Woman Can’t Get McNuggets And Goes Nuts

If you need anymore proof that there is something other than chicken in McDonald’s McNuggets, look no further than Melodi Dushane. Melodi went through the fast food drive-thru at 6:30 in the morning hoping to get some of Mickey D’s famous chicken morsels. When she found out that the restaurant was only serving breakfast,…

Some people are always complaining about how much chains like Starbucks charge for a simple cup of coffee. Well, these folks haven’t heard about “Kopi Luwak,” and luckily not too many coffee shops have either. “Kopi Luwak” is a special brew that costs $30 bucks a cup because of its one special stand-out ingredient: animal…

The USA: Where The Food Gets Grosser And Grosser

Have you eaten lunch yet? You might be about to lose it. Traditional American dishes are getting grosser and grosser.

McDonald’s In Miniature: Why French People Don’t Get Fat

I snapped a picture of this new McDonald’s ad in the Paris metro system a few days ago. Apparently, McDonald’s chains in France have added a new dessert to the menu—a frappé, a Frenchisized version of a milkshake—and these advertisements have gone up all over Paris. Despite rising obesity rates in France, here’s a clue…

Quotable: Salma Hayek Loves Eating Bugs

“We Mexicans eat bugs, but we don’t eat horses. We have many recipes for some of them. Escamoles, which are eggs of these little ants—fried, they are amazing with a little bit of guacamole.

Outox: The Anti-Alcohol Drink Causing A Stir In France

There comes a moment (or a couple hundred) in every young woman’s life when she says to herself, Man, I wish I hadn’t been so effing drunk. Of course, the natural remedy to these scenarios would be to, um, not drink? Or, you could drink Outox. The beverage, which was released today in France, ha…

An Ode To Iced Tea

Today is, without a doubt, the most important holiday of the year—National Iced Tea Day. I drink so much iced tea that it’s permanently in my blood stream. I just can’t get enough of the refreshing stuff. When I first moved to New York from North Carolina, I ordered iced tea at a restaurant and…

As they say, when life gives you lemons … well, you know the drill. Turn this classic warm weather drink into something gourmet and high-class by focusing on basil flavors.

Naming A Cereal “Muffin Tops” Seems Like A Bad Move

Blueberry Muffin Tops cereal has been around for a few years, but we just noticed it at the store and can’t believe a company would name a cereal after the fatty flesh that hangs out over the waistline of pants, especially since it doesn’t look like the tops of muffins. What’s next, Love Handles ice…

A Doll In The Kitchen

If cooking’s your thing, you better have the tools to get the job done right. Sure, regular ole measuring cups can ensure you mix up correct amounts of flour and sugar, but will they make you smile when you pull open your kitchen cabinet? Because these Russian Doll measuring cups will.
