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]
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]
