You like hot guys. You like French fries. You are shocked and appalled that it’s taken the world this long to come up with a site that celebrates the two at the same time. And yet, here we are, in 2013 with Guys With Fries. A single-serving blog in which dude’s cell phones are Photoshopped out of selfie shots and replaced with a container of fries, this is either the most dirty snack food/sex combo, or the most brilliant underground marketing for McDonald’s. Click through to see a couple more fry guys (including one who’s trying to kill us by also holding a puppy). [Guys With Fries] Keep reading »
I’m absolutely tickled by food that looks like other food. I love burritos. And cake. So this burrito-shaped cake is totally hits my sweet spot (no pun intended). The cake was made by a Reddit user with the appetizing moniker parakeetpoop, for a coworker’s goodbye party. So what’s it made of? The burrito is a chocolate cake coated with fondant. The lettuce and cheese are both made from coconut, the tomatoes are fruit snacks and meat is a crushed chocolate bar. The whole thing looks totally dreamy. [Reddit]

Are you grossed out or intrigued? Either way, you’re not alone. “It’s obviously not for everybody,” Leftover Swap co-founder Dan Newman told NPR. “But for as many people who seemingly have a problem with it, there’s people who love the idea.” Keep reading »
After months of amassing NYC residents’ flavor preferences on a special website, Ben & Jerry’s has launched its new ice cream flavor, Borough Brew. And the flavor of New York City is (drumroll please): Six Point Brewery beer, 3BEANS vanilla ice cream, butterscotch from Spoonable Caramels, brownies from Greyston Bakery and caramel corn from Liddabit Sweets. Should they have waited just a couple more weeks to start getting our input on our favorite tastes, there’s no doubt there would have been some Cronuts mixed in there, even though most New Yorkers haven’t had the good fortune to taste one yet. Borough Brew, while delicious sounding, missed out on so many native New York flavor profiles. In my estimation, these other flavors would have been just as accurate a representation… Keep reading »
