Ben & Jerry’s Appeals To Stoners Everywhere With New Cookie-Specific CORE Flavors

Ben & Jerry's Cookie Core Flavors

Ever since I stopped drinking as much cheap champagne and my sugar craving skyrocketed, I have become a bit of an ice cream junkie (okay, I also maybe get the munchies). I am pretty serious about stocking up on my fave flavors and Ben & Jerry’s makes a bunch of them — Mint Chocolate Cookie, Late Night Snack, What A Cluster, I could go on — so when the brand launched their CORE flavors last year, I was stoked. I am always down for more BITS OF STUFF in my ice cream and the CORE flavors pack all the bits of stuff into the center so you can dig out as much stuff as you want in each bite. BRILLIANT, really. However, I was disappointed that B&J failed to offer a CORE variety for what seemed like the most obvious flavor — COOKIE DOUGH. Until now. Keep reading »

It Might Not Be Necessary To Eat Three Meals A Day, But It’s Better For You

I was scrolling through nutrition news today when I happened upon this article on the decline of the Three Meals A Day paradigm. It’s weirdly depressing: It starts out talking about the fact that back in ye olde days, before electricity, people didn’t actually eat three meals a day — they had bread for breakfast and then one really big meal out in the fields in the afternoon, before it got dark.

Allow me to interrupt your day to bring you this very important, very delicious public service announcement: There’s now a way to devour uncooked cookie dough without fearing you’ll get salmonella.

To this day, I’m still guilty of scooping cookie dough straight out of the bowl before I put a batch of cookies in the oven, which is always followed by immediate regret and panic that I may get salmonella … again. It happened to me once, and it was not enjoyable. BUT, I was recently introduced to Unbakeables, cookie dough bites meant to be eaten uncooked (they’re egg-free), with extra toppings to sweeten the deal. I’m pretty sure they could revolutionize kids’ birthday parties everywhere, forever. Keep reading »

Frisky Eats: 17 Recipes For Puppy Chow/Muddy Buddies

Amelia dropped a bomb on The Frisky staff today: she’s never heard of puppy chow. “What, is it supposed to look like dog food?” she asked. Oh, silly Amelia! We explained puppy chow is a variation on Chex mix where you combine melted chocolate or syrup with candy and add yummy ingredients to give it different flavors. It’s popular at Girl Scout bake sales everywhere!

Puppy chow also goes by the names reindeer food, muddy buddies and (inexplicably) snowman poop, so I don’t blame her for being confused. I did some deep Pinterest-ing and found 17 different puppy-snow-reindeer-poop recipes to help Amelia get with the program and give myself some snacking ideas. Dig in!

Frisky Eats: 10 Post-Sex Snacks For Dignified Adults

Reading Buzzfeed’s definitive ranking of foods to eat after sex, made us feel, well, nostalgic for our younger years. Once upon a time it was nice to eat an entire pint of Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey post-coitus, back when our metabolisms burned it off like it was nothing. Coronas, which we used to suck down, just give us gas now. And cigarettes? Haven’t touched one after sex, or even socially, in years. However, we’re still human, so we still crave a satisfying snack after roll in hay. But we’re adults now. No more leftovers straight out of the fridge or Nutella straight out of the jar. Those days were fun, but they’re over. Click through for some upgrades to your favorite post-sex grub. Because you deserve better than cheese cubes. Cheese cubes are for toddlers. [Photo from Shutterstock]
