The day I learned that J. enjoyed a nice, hot cup of “beef tea” was the day I realized this guy most definitely wasn’t the one. As anyone outside of the UK might not know, we have this strange meat spread called Bovril. Said viscous, meaty paste can be added to boiling water to create… 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 »

At first glance, this grilled cheese cookie sandwich looks, well, let’s go with “disconcerting.” I mean, the melted orange cheese between two chocolate chip cookies? It’s weird. It’s unexpected. It’s…delicious? Yep, according to its creator, Chef Stef of The Cupcake Project, this hybrid confection is the ultimate dessert: a perfect union of sweet and salty,… READ MORE »

Yep, you read that right: this crazy creation from a place called (fittingly) Psycho Donuts is filled with real beer pastry cream and topped with beer nuts. I’m a huge fan of donuts but I hate beer, so this confection leaves me conflicted. Would you be brave enough to take a bite? [Neatorama] … READ MORE »

Carl’s Jr is currently testing a new product called the “Ice Cream Brrrger,” which is, well, exactly what it sounds like: a burger made of ice cream. We’re a little creeped out by the beefy texture of the ice cream and the dripping frosting condiments, but in the grand scheme of freaky fast foods, this… READ MORE »

You guys, this is a culinary creation called Cupcakewurst. What is Cupcakewurst, you ask? Well, it’s cupcake batter stuffed into a sausage casing, grilled, and served on a long doughnut with raspberry sauce “ketchup.” It’s definitely creative; it also definitely makes me want to barf. Would you be brave enough to take a bite? [Buzzfeed]… READ MORE »

Yesterday, Pizza Hut announced their new pizza innovation: pizza with hot dogs in the crust. After you’re done devouring your pizza, you’ve still got a hot dog cooked into the crust left to eat. It’s two delicious junk foods in one! We were really excited by the possibility [We were? — Editor], but unfortunately it’s… READ MORE »

One of my favorite things about traveling to a foreign country is discovering the local cuisine. Yes, of course I mean going to fun restaurants — from fancy, upscale places to out of the way dives — but I also like to hit up the nearest convenience store and ogle their selection of Doritos.
