A Critical Development In Snack Technology

handtrux

The description on these mitten-like hand truck shovels says, “Turn your tyke into the action figure of his dreams with an ingenious, slip-on shovel that lets him bulldoze through playtime! Ideal for unleashing the joys of backyard building, beach digging and sister teasing. Bring them to the beach for easy scooping and sand-castle building. HandTrux shovel made of ABS plastic in the USA.”

This is not at all what these Handtrux should be used for. Trust me. Keep reading »

A Pepsi-Flavored Cheeto Exists, Whether We Like It Or Not

pepsi cheeto flavor

The Snackopalypse is upon us, and it is going to coated with bright orange Cheeto dust. The firm behind the crunchy, cheesy snack, with its perfect mouth-feel, has developed a new varietal: Pepsi-flavored Cheetos. Now, you’re probably thinking, But Pepsi is the thing I drink when I’m at a weird diner that doesn’t serve Coke. And you’d be right. But it is also the beverage that was smart enough to partner with Cheetos on their new soda-flavored snack. Keep reading »

I think it’s really hard to keep up your childhood wonder and curiosity as you get older. Your priorities shift, you suddenly have to pay “rent” and “feed” yourself and “get a job.” You don’t have time to do awesome stuff, like create earth-shattering snack innovations. The Moreo, pictured above, is clearly the result of much thought and contemplation: What would improve the Oreo-eating experience and reflect our very human need to feel special and unique? It’s a simple concept: A not-actually-real-product derived by completely separating all the Oreo filling from its chocolate cookie shells. But it yields remarkable results. You’re able to custom design the Oreo of your dreams. Want five times the filling? Go crazy. Or, content to dunk your chocolate cookies in milk? Add peanut butter, and make yours double-decker? You can do that, too. Sure, there are Moreo detractors, like Tumblr user shslvalkyrie, who believes that “no human should have this much power,” but we beg to differ. Whatever your particular Oreo choices are, we respect that, and hope that you’ll have a Moreo of your own, very soon. [Food Beast]

WTF Is Oreo Thinking With These Watermelon Cookies?

Watermelon Oreos

Oreo Corporation, You know I love you, in particular for your double stuffed innovations. You guys were supersizing before there even was supersizing. But for fuck’s sake, what is with these weird ass flavor combos, guys? I have a lot of ideas for Oreo fillings, chief among them a S’mores flavor, because it obviously makes sense. But no, instead you guys insist on things like Cool Mint (found in bulk in dollar stores) and Candy Corn, and Banana Split flavor (gross.) In China, you can get Mango/Orange Oreos and Birthday Cake flavor (which sounds delicious). And in Indonesia, blueberry-flavored cookies are in vogue. But the latest flavor sensation to hit the states? How about some watermelon Oreos (made with vanilla cookies instead of chocolate)? Or maybe you’d prefer Strawberries ‘n’ Cream Oreos? Because those are a real thing, too. Guys, let’s get it together. [Laughing Squid]

 

Sign Of The End Times: Backwards Hoodie Snack Food Troughs

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]

Some Mountain Dew with that?

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!
