Burger King’s ‘Black Burger’ Even Has Black Cheese

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.

Dream Or Nightmare: Mountain Dew Doritos Cupcakes

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…

RIP Society: This Ice Cream Sundae Costs $25,000

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…

Häagen-Dazs Is Making Vegetable-Flavored Ice Cream Now

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 i…

Domino’s Breaded Chicken Crust Pizza & 13 Other Crazy And Sort Of Disgusting Fast Food Innovations

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.

Be My Boyfriend: Chef Who Makes Itty Bitty Sushi Out Of Single Grains Of Rice

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.

Life Dream Status: Red Robin Debuts Wine Milkshakes

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…

Great News For Floor Food Enthusiasts: Scientists Say The 5-Second Rule Might Actually Be True

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 suggest…

An Ode To The Woman Who Attempted To Shoplift 330 Pizza Rolls From Walmart

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, you know the ooey, gooey taste ca…

Watch A Cake Artist Recreate Michelangelo’s “The Creation Of Adam” With Frosting, Marshmallows, And Sprinkles

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…

Cheers! Beer-Flavored Jelly Beans Have Arrived

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…

Dream Or Nightmare: This Vending Machine Dispenses Hot Burritos

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…

I Want To Live There: A Life-Size Gingerbread House

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.

Dream Or Nightmare: A Kentucky Fried Chicken-Scented Candle

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.

Dream Or Nightmare: Stuffing Waffles And Gravy Syrup

My attitude about pretty much everything on a standard Thanksgiving menu is "oh, that's nice," but when it comes to stuffing and gravy, my attitude is more along the lines of, "GIVE IT ALL TO ME."

20 Totally Unappetizing Celeb Cake Wrecks

I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but I enjoy a small slice of cake from time to time. But I am a traditionalist. I prefer my cake to be of the sheet variety, red velvet, chocolate or vanilla, with simple frosting. No doohickies, no weird filling, and most important of all, no huge celebritie…
