  • ‘KFC Comfort Zone': A Meditation Series from KFC (Video)

    ‘KFC Comfort Zone': A Meditation Series from KFC (Video)

    Sometimes I feel vaguely guilty about how often I find myself writing about KFC’s various promotional stunts on this site – especially since the Colonel hasn’t written me any checks. But how can I resist when the chicken chain keeps doing crazy stuff like KFC Comfort Zone, a new parody meditational web series that lets you […]

  • Kit Kat Chocolatory Sublime Ruby Made from Ruby Chocolate

    Kit Kat Chocolatory Sublime Ruby Made from Ruby Chocolate

    I just got done writing about the Flamenco Ice Tower and how it represented a new level of achievement in the field of ice towers. Now, by pure coincidence, I find out that they’re still coming out with new kinds of chocolate too – ruby chocolate to be precise, the first new variety in 80 […]

  • KFC Stocktails: “Gravy So Good You Can Drink It” (Video)

    KFC Stocktails: “Gravy So Good You Can Drink It” (Video)

    I’ve been known to enjoy some KFC chicken from time to time, but I admit I never really had any particular affection for the restaurant’s gravy. Evidently the Colonel and co. are tired of that attitude, because they’ve whipped up a line of KFC stocktails, cocktails made from the gravy (or, for the wordplay-challenged, “stock”) under […]

  • Chicken Pizza Crust: America’s Latest Food Innovation

    Chicken Pizza Crust: America’s Latest Food Innovation

    Once again it behooves me to make a reference to George Costanza’s stint as a Tyson Chicken employee, and once again I’m appalled and horrified at the American food industry for the same reason. The Washington Post recently reported on something called, I kid you not, chicken pizza crust, and it must be stopped by any means necessary. […]

  • Mikkeller Beer Chips: Chips Made from Beer Ingredients

    Mikkeller Beer Chips: Chips Made from Beer Ingredients

    Chips and beer go together almost as well as pizza and beer, chicken and beer, cheeseburgers and beer, another kind of beer and beer, and so on. Small batch chippery Lokale Rødder has teamed up with the Mikkeller brewery for Mikkeller Beer Chips, potato chips made from actual beer ingredients and to replicate actual beer flavors – it’s […]

  • Archburger Being Tested by Select McDonald’s Locations

    Archburger Being Tested by Select McDonald’s Locations

    Long time fast food fans look back fondly on a sandwich known as the Arch Deluxe, an early attempt by McDonald’s to offer an upscale cheeseburger complete with fresh beef, a fancy potato flour bun and “Arch Sauce,” a mayo and mustard blend. Like all good things, the burger was destined to fail, but now […]

  • Fried Chicken Home Type: KFC Japan Unveils “Repressed Scent” Chicken

    Fried Chicken Home Type: KFC Japan Unveils “Repressed Scent” Chicken

    Cultural differences between countries can be fascinating sometimes. For instance, where I sit in the southeastern United States, it’s unthinkable to me that anyone would want to invent a fried chicken that doesn’t smell like fried chicken. KFC Japan – for some reason – has done exactly that with a “repressed scent” fried chicken called Fried […]

  • Arby’s Meat Sweats: Restaurant Releases Special Holiday Sweatsuits

    Arby’s Meat Sweats: Restaurant Releases Special Holiday Sweatsuits

    It’s the holiday season, which means it’s time to clock yourself in a glorious robe of Arby’s roast beef. But in order to do that, you have to purchase a frankly irresponsible amount of Arby’s sandwiches that you’ll obviously just end up eating anyway, so it’s a good thing that there’s a new line of Arby’s […]

  • The Silo: A Novel Sandwich is the Source of Legal Controversy

    The Silo: A Novel Sandwich is the Source of Legal Controversy

    Generally when I write up weird sandwiches on here, the stakes of the sandwich in question are pretty much limited to the reader being able to try one for him or herself if they feel like it. But with The Silo at the Half Brothers Brewing Co. in Grand Forks, North Dakota, which is now NOT being served due […]
