If you’ve been using the hood of your hoodie as a way to keep your head warm and shield you from the elements, you’ve really been missing out. Because guess what? If you turn your hoodie around, that same old hood transforms into a convenient trough to store your snack foods. Just fill your hood with chips, popcorn, or leftover lasagna, and dip your head down to enjoy a hands-free feast! In related news, I don’t want to live on this planet anymore. [Buzzfeed]
I must admit, I felt pretty cool when Lay’s reached out to me and asked if we wanted to celebrate National Potato Chip Day (March 14) with them. We, collectively, are huge fans of snacking, if you couldn’t tell, and Lays makes snacks. Snacks we maybe binge eat in private. But anyway! We came up with a very important assignment for them — give us the proper beverages to pair with the brand’s three new eater-suggested flavors — Sriracha, Chicken & Waffles and Cheesy Garlic Bread. Amazingly, Executive Research Chef for Frito-Lay, Stephen Kalil, complied, and made us the above video. Tomorrow, we’ll be posting our very own flavor taste test (along with an “adult beverages” pairing) but for now, enjoy drink pairings straight from the horse’s mouth!
All praise to Darlene Horn, the epic genius over at Foodbeast who came up with the brilliant plan to hollow out a couple of donuts, stick ‘em in some shot glasses and then pour Kahlua into the donut deliciousness. And the best part? You can easily make your own donut shotglasses — if you can manage to stop yourself from eating the donuts straightaway. [Neatorama]
This photo is from the National Potato Chip Institute convention of 1948, an event which apparently involved fitting a model with a surprisingly lovely potato chip bra. I’m really not sure why this concept never caught on. I mean, a bra you can snack on while watching TV? Life dream status. [Buzzfeed]
It appears that the good people at Maple Lodge Farms have come up with an incredible new offering. It’s a hot dog chocolate eclair — at once delicious and revolting. We’d love to eat it, if we weren’t also completely terrified by it. [Neatorama]
Yesterday, I wrote about Cinnabon’s new adventure in snackovation — the Pizzabon. The Pizzabon pairs America’s love of fast food cinnamon buns with America’s love of pizza. It was a win-win, but I was troubled by pictures of the Pizzabon that seemed to suggest that the pizza flavors would simply be piled atop the Cinnabon dough, rather than swirled like-a delicious-a stromboli. I made a graphic, even!
The kind folks over at Cinnabon headquarters (The Giant Cinnabon, perhaps) were kind enough to correct me. “The new Pizzabon IS in fact made with pizza in the inside,” explains Amy, PR rep at Cinnabon headquarters, ”in addition to pizza on top.” So I’m happy to follow up with a new, updated graphic displaying all that Pizzabons have to offer… Keep reading »
When I heard that Cinnabon had created a new snack treat to add to its gooey cinnamon bun empire, I was thrilled. Then I found out it was a pizza-oriented treat called a Pizzabon. Double thrilled! But then I saw the Pizzabon, and deep snackappointment (that’s snack disappointment, if you’ve never experienced it before) set in. This was not the pizza-cum-cinnamon bun treat I had envisioned. Cinnabon, with all its cinnamon bun technology, had failed to capitalize on the unique swirl shape inherent in its product. Allow me to illustrate how they failed, after the jump… Keep reading »
Homegirls Potato Chips … dream snack status. What do they taste like? All that and a bag of chips. That’s my best effort. It’s Friday. Your turn! And bonus points if you can tell me how Kathy got her leg to do that. [The Clearly Dope]
As a kid, before I understood the concept of carbs, I used to make myself delicious spaghetti sandwiches. That’s where I would pile a bunch of spaghetti and sauce onto two pieces of garlic bread and chow down. Of course, eating pasta on bread is kind of a gross thing to do (just kidding, it’s totally delicious). But it’s nothing compared to the awesomely gross thing my boyfriend used to eat as an after-school snack as a child. Each afternoon he would pour himself a bowl of croutons and douse them in ranch dressing. When he ran out of croutons, he would sub in Cheese-Its. I really think this snackovation makes him my soul mate, but I know some of you have some awesome snack recipes, too. Tell me all about them in the comments!
