Have you ever been in the middle of making a sandwich and stopped to think, “Wow, what this really needs is some thinly sliced chocolate?” READ MORE »

Who knows how many cheeseburger-noshing rules will be broken by this new sandwich from Burger King, but hey—anything’s better than meat-scented perfume, right? BK Japan’s “Kuro Burger” (or “Black Burger”) is apparently hitting restaurants there on Sept. 19, according to promotional images shown on the restaurant’s Facebook page. The “goth-like” burger, as the Guardian calls… READ MORE »

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Mountain Dew Doritos Cupcake, a hybrid of neon green soda, lemon cake mix, and nacho cheese chips. I think Claire put it best: “if ever a baked good captured the spirit of America, it is this one.” The perfect treat to bring to a 4th of July picnic! Check out the videoREAD MORE »

TablehoppingNY just released a list of  the most expensive dishes in New York City and I am honestly disturbed that anyone would pay $25,000 for an ice cream sundae. Like a twisted version of the glow-in-the-dark figurine at the bottom of your Frosted Fruit Loops, the $25K sundae at Serendipity 3 sits on top of a… READ MORE »

Ahh, another snackovation for the “let’s not and say we did” file: Häagen-Dazs is releasing vegetable-flavored ice cream in Japan! Well, fruit and vegetable-flavored, technically, as each of the two new flavors features fruit as well. Carrot Orange is, uh, carrot-flavored with a hint of orange and other citrus, while Tomato Cherry is just the way it sounds — annnnnnd technically is… READ MORE »

I don’t eat a ton of fast food, but I do pay close attention to the fast food industry’s attempts to one-up each other with crazier, weirder and, if you ask me, more disgusting food innovations and hybrids. Take, for example, Domino’s new pizza with a breaded chicken crust. Excuse me, “speciality chicken” crust, whatever that means. READ MORE »

Dear Chef Hironori Ikeno,

Two of my favorite things in life are sushi and miniature replicas of larger things, so when I heard you were making mini sushi rolls out of single grains of rice, I was understandably intrigued. Also hungry, because have I mentioned how much I love sushi? Anyway, I read that… READ MORE »

Red Robin will always hold a special place in my heart. It was the most affordable “fine dining” establishment in the suburb a few miles from my small town high school, which made it the go-to place to celebrate birthdays, volleyball wins, SAT scores, and System of a Down CD releases. I spent many late… READ MORE »

The 5-second rule has been providing a comforting layer of germ security to anyone who doesn’t mind picking dustbunnies off their peanut butter toast for generations. While the theory has generally been dismissed by mature adults and the lamestream media (sorry, I’ve just always wanted an excuse to type, “lamestream media”), a new study suggests… READ MORE »

Dominique Ansel, creator of the beloved/maligned/notorious/famous croissant-donut hybrid, the cronut, will officially debut his newest creation this weekend at SXSW in Austin, and it’s a doozy: the chocolate chip cookie milk shot. What is it? Exactly what it sounds like: a sweet, crispy shot glass made of a chocolate chip cookie, filled with cold milk. This… READ MORE »

This amazing macaroni & cheese ring has been making the rounds online this week. Many people seem to think it’s just a silly little novelty accessory, but I happen to find it extremely romantic. In fact, my boyfriend and I don’t want to get married, but if he were to get down on one knee… READ MORE »

Earlier this week, a woman was arrested after attempting to shoplift 330 Totino’s Pizza Rolls from an Arkansas Walmart. My feelings about this story can only be expressed one way — in rhyming couplets:
For anyone who’s ever tried a pizza roll or five,

This week marked the 450th anniversary of the death of Michelangelo. Cake artist Michelle Wibowo commemorated the occasion in a very, ahem, sweet way, by recreating his masterpiece, “The Creation Of Adam,” using frosting, marshmallows, and sprinkles. The resulting edible artwork is breathtaking (not to mention drool-inducing), and the entire process — which took 168… READ MORE »

When your consider the fact that beer-flavored lip gloss, beer-filled donuts, and, ahem, beer-flavored vagina wipes have all been invented, your reaction to beer-flavored jelly beans will probably be something along the lines of, “Seriously? Those didn’t already exist?” But these jelly beans are no novelty or passing fad — they’re the real deal, the… READ MORE »

On one hand, I fucking love burritos. On the other hand, I don’t usually trust food, other than candy, soda or chips, that comes out of a mysterious contraption located in the same space as where I pump gas. While part of me wants to get excited about the Burrito Box, “the world’s first burrito… READ MORE »

When I first read about the life-size, world record-setting gingerbread house that had been erected in Texas, I was ready to pack my bags and move in. I mean, 39,000 edible cubic feet of gingerbread, frosting, candy canes, and lollipops? Life dream status! But alas, some things that seem like a dream true are actually… READ MORE »

I recently went on a fall candle shopping spree, so every room of my house is now filled with blissful smells like balsam wood, pumpkin pie, cinnamon, firewood, and cranberry peppermint.
