    Summer is approaching fast, and with it peak grilling season. But if you’re hoping to grill up some good eats for not just your immediate family, but perhaps an attachment of soldiers or a traveling circus troupe, there’s a grill that lets you cook all that food at one time – the Vito Corleone of […]

    Colonel Sanders Returns Played by Darrell Hammond (Video)

    I read an article recently about how every American president has inspired a slew of pop culture heroes in his own image – the JFK era gave us suave James Bond, Ronald Reagan gave us hyper-artificial Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, etc. I bring up this theory because another great American hero has made his triumphant […]

    The Most American Thickburger: Carl’s Jr. Unveils Latest Bohemoth

    “America” means many things to many people, but what could it mean to be “the most American?” There are probably as many different answers to that question, but it’s hard for me to think of a better one than Carl’s Jr.’s latest affront to the human body, The Most American Thickburger. Let’s run down the […]

    Domino’s Launching Emoji Ordering System

    Imagine the following scenario: You want some pizza. You tweet that you want some pizza. Pizza arrives. You eat the pizza. If it seems like there are some steps missing there, that’s because I’m describing Domino’s recently announced system for ordering pizza through Twitter, including simply @-replying the Domino’s Twitter account with a pizza emoji. […]

    ‘We Love Sweat': New Gatorade Ad Narrated by Michael Jordan (Video)

    Gatorade has long associations with both basketball legend Michael Jordan and bodily fluid sweat, and their latest commercial is a strong convergence of those two entities, titled We Love Sweat. And I should warn any squeamish readers that it doesn’t mean “sweat” figuratively, and that the commercial really does have a whole lot of sweat in […]

  • GrillTimer: “The World’s First BBQ Timing Watch”

    GrillTimer: “The World’s First BBQ Timing Watch”

    When I think about fashionable essential grilling accessories, my brain immediately jumps to those “Kiss The Cook” aprons favored by goofy sitcom characters everywhere. But there may be a new top-of-the-heap coming to grillers’ wardrobes, and it’s a lot more useful than any novelty apron.  It’s the GrillTimer, billed by its makers at Little Griddle […]

  • Messy Brine Jalabeaño Carrots

    Messy Brine Jalabeaño Carrots

    Carrots: Unless you’re a big Bugs Bunny fan (or you’re actually Bugs Bunny), they’re just not that exciting a food, and the same goes for green beans. But the people at Messy Brine have changed that, with liberal doses of jalapeño, garlic, and other ingredients, to give birth to their Messy Brine Jalabeaño Carrots blend. Messy […]

  • Arctican Koozie Keeps Beverages Cold for 3 Hours

    Arctican Koozie Keeps Beverages Cold for 3 Hours

    Beer and soda koozies are great from a purely tactile standpoint, and I know we all enjoy using them from time to time, particularly in the summer. But how well do they actually work? The answer to that would require some intensive scientific research that I’m not equipped for, but I do know the average koozie […]

    UberEATS: Uber Launches Food Delivery Service (Video)

    Uber is looking to do for food delivery what it already did for transportation, and they’re launching a service called UberEATS to prove it. Basically, the service will provide users with a menu drawn from select restaurants in their area, with the meals ultimately delivered to their door. Right now, UberEATS is available in Los […]
