  • Black Insomnia Black Hydro: Caffeine-Infused Mineral Water

    Black Insomnia Black Hydro: Caffeine-Infused Mineral Water

    Not everybody likes to down coffee after a workout, even it’s of the iced variety. Energy drinks carry their own baggage, too but the people at Black Insomnia coffee have come up with a caffeine-infused mineral water designed to replenish electrolytes and give you a much-needed jolt of their infamous caffeine at the same time.

  • Kanazawa Ice: Japanese Scientists Invent Melt-Free Ice Cream

    Kanazawa Ice: Japanese Scientists Invent Melt-Free Ice Cream

    I’ve always had a kind of faith that technology would eventually solve all of society’s problems: Wealth inequality, hunger, war, climate change, disease, etc etc etc. But never in my wildest, most optimistic fantasies did I ever dream that scientists would one day crack the problem of melting ice cream. But they evidently have, and […]

  • Krispy Kreme Reese’s Peanut Butter Doughnut

    Krispy Kreme Reese’s Peanut Butter Doughnut

    I had somehow forgotten this, but a year ago this month we told you about the Krispy Kreme Reese’s Peanut Butter Doughnut making its debut in Australia. Fate rewards the patient in this world, and now this doughnut/chocolate/peanut butter/pastry hybrid is making its way to the United States. The American Krispy Kreme Reese’s Peanut Butter […]

  • ‘Eat What You Watch: A Cookbook for Movie Lovers’ by Andrew Rea

    ‘Eat What You Watch: A Cookbook for Movie Lovers’ by Andrew Rea

    Andrew Rea is the creator of the popular web series Binging with Babish, which generally shows viewers how to create famous dishes from TV and movies. It’s only natural that such a concept would be adapted into a cookbook, and so it is with Rea’s upcoming Eat What You Watch: A Cookbook for Movie Lovers. […]

  • Pepper Nitro with a Jerky Twist: New Cold Brew Drink from Starbucks

    Pepper Nitro with a Jerky Twist: New Cold Brew Drink from Starbucks

    Jerky. Starbucks. Starbucks. Jerky. Yeah, personally I’m not really seeing the combo, but I’m also not in charge of developing new beverages at Starbucks – which might explain the existence of the Pepper Nitro with a Jerky Twist, a new Starbucks cold brew beverage that actually comes served with a stick of beef jerky. The […]

  • Fried Fried Chicken Chicken: Beer Brewed with Fried Chicken

    Fried Fried Chicken Chicken: Beer Brewed with Fried Chicken

    I feel like at least once a month I invoke something that happened on Seinfeld on this site, and I know it’s been George Costanza’s brief stint as a Tyson Chicken executive at least once. And yet, I’d be remiss not to mention that very stint when I tell you about Fried Fried Chicken Chicken […]

  • CasusGrill: A Totally Biodegradable Disposable Grill

    CasusGrill: A Totally Biodegradable Disposable Grill

    The phrase “disposable grill” gets abused a little bit out in the marketplace, since most of these disposable grills will collect dust in a compost heap for decades rather than being truly disposed of, in the global sense. But CasusGrill, fresh off winning a “Feel Good” 2017 Danish Design Award, is different. CasusGrill is a […]

  • Coca-Cola Zero Sugar: The New Replacement for Coke Zero

    Coca-Cola Zero Sugar: The New Replacement for Coke Zero

    Coke Zero has been the soft drink of choice for diet cola tolerators for a while now, but today Coke made the shocking announcement that it was discontinuing the beverage. Not to worry, though, since it’s being replaced by the new Coca-Cola Zero Sugar. Coke brought about the change out of a desire to be […]

  • KFC Gamer’s Box 2.0: A Fried Chicken Box/Video Game Controller

    KFC Gamer’s Box 2.0: A Fried Chicken Box/Video Game Controller

    I imagine most who write or talk about the new KFC Gamer’s Box 2.0 will categorize it as something like a “fried chicken box that’s also a video game controller.” That’s totally accurate, and completely in line with KFC‘s recent strategy to do a bunch of crazy stuff to get people to tweet their brand […]

  • Taco Mode: Lyft Partners with Taco Bell

    Taco Mode: Lyft Partners with Taco Bell

    Taco Bell is the late-night spot of choice for people who either don’t want to get out of their car or who don’t live in Waffle House country. Rideshare app Lyft recognizes this, and in doing so has partnered with Taco Bell for the new Taco Mode feature, reportedly rolling out later this week for […]
