Chocolate Bars Can Be DIY, Too

The way to a woman’s heart is with chocolate, but the way to anyone‘s heart is with a custom-made chocolate bar. Choose your bar flavor, such as white chocolate or dark. Then pick up to five toppings to be blended in and mark your bar as truly yours. Are cranberries your fancy, or would you prefer goji berries? How about sea salt or ginger? Crushed candy cane, candy corn, or gummy bears? Chocri offers over 10 billion possible combinations, and you can even customize your chocolate bar with a message like “I love you” or “happy birthday.” If that set-up doesn’t just melt your heart, then nothing will.

Is The Pumpple Cake The World’s Most Perfect Dessert?

Stuck as to where you stand in the cake versus pie debate? Now you don’t have to choose! A Philadelphia bakery has created the pumpple cake — an apple pie and a pumpkin pie baked inside a vanilla and chocolate cake “fused together and surrounded by buttercream frosting.” The whole concoction clocks in at 15 lbs. and 1,800 calories, but the owners of the Flying Monkey bakery say that it ideally feeds four people. Just four?! More importantly, how does it taste? Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb got to taste the dessert on “The Today Show” this morning and Kathie Lee described it as “obscene — that is delicious.” Of course, she was probably drunk.

Mind Of Man: Men Are From Bacon, Women Are From Cupcakes

Men don’t have a passion for sweet treats the way women do. If given a choice between a sugary confection and something savory, men will choose the latter. This is not some kind of random, sweeping gender generalization I just made up. I have scientific proof. Like many big cities, New York has seen the arrival over the past few years of novelty food trucks. These trucks sell everything from waffles and tacos to schnitzel and BBQ. Yesterday I walked by two such trucks. One sold cupcakes, the other Asian dumplings. Women stood eagerly in line for cupcakes, but I made a beeline for the dumplings. They were delicious, meat-stuffed globules of delight. Dumplings are my anti-cupcake. Keep reading »

Willy Wonka Fantasy Gum About To Be A Reality!

Since I was a kid obsessed with “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” I’ve been fantasizing about Ever-Lasting Gobstoppers, Lickable Wallpaper, Wonkavision, and Three-Course-Dinner Gum.

This fantasy gum may actually become a reality thanks to the new technology that can capture time-release flavors in microscopic capsules. Keep reading »

Trust Us, You Really, REALLY Don’t Want To Eat That Chicken Nugget

Despite seeing the horrors of the fast food industry in “Food Inc” and “Fast Food Nation,” we must admit that once in a very great while, we say “F**k it,” and stuff our face with a Big Mac while forcing ourselves to think of happy images of unicorns and dancing polar bears—anything but processed meat and slaughterhouses.

And as if it wasn’t gross enough that the goo looks like strawberry ice cream, we then learned this: Keep reading »

Chopsticks For Two, For One

Combine history, design, and romance, and of course you get a winner: Originally fashioned as a hair restraint for samurai warriors, Mizuhiki grew into a Japanese cord-tying art form used as decorative symbolism. Playing with table design, Japanese company Oey combines Mizuhiki with chopsticks, binding them together with brightly colored twine. In the end, this symbolizes the act of enjoying a meal with a loved one and the wish of “being together forever.” (Aww!) Put these on the list for cute anniversary presents and wedding favors.
