  • Collapsible Beer Glass: Never Go Out Without Your Glasses

    Collapsible Beer Glass: Never Go Out Without Your Glasses

    How’s this for a nightmare scenario: You’re out there in the desert, having been separated from your group, dying of thirst, and you come across a lone keg in the wilderness. It’s ice cold, and you could use a beer, but whoever installed this keg from Heaven forgot to put some cups nearby. Now, if […]

    Burger King Japan Launches Red “Aka” Burgers (Pics)

    You might have seen those crazy looking black cheeseburgers from Burger King Japan a while back, with buns and cheese turned black by some kind of forbidden kitchen chemistry. Now, the restaurant is rolling out something almost as disturbing – the “Aka” burger, which translates in English as “Red.” As you might expect from a […]

  • Hot Dog Bites Pizza From Pizza Hut is Coming

    Hot Dog Bites Pizza From Pizza Hut is Coming

    It rampaged through Canada. It left the United Kingdom in ruins. And now it’s coming to the United States. It’s the Hot Dog Bites Pizza from Pizza Hut, the restaurant’s latest attempt to do something, anything, that will make everyone stop ignoring it. The Hot Dog Bites Pizza takes the usual (or cheese-stuffed) pizza crust and replaces […]

  • Crystal Pepsi Poised for a Comeback

    Crystal Pepsi Poised for a Comeback

    Here’s some good proof that nostalgia can redeem just about anything: People miss Crystal Pepsi. Despite widespread testimony that it tastes bad and it being kind of a creepy idea to begin with (it’s supposed to taste just like Pepsi but it’s transparent instead of whatever color Pepsi is), the #BringBackCrystalPepsi social media campaign has caught […]

    Heisenberg Vodka From Blue Ice Vodka (Video)

    The dear, departed Walter White, former chemistry teacher from Albuquerque, New Mexico, became known for manufacturing a certain product before his untimely death at the hands of his own science gun. But it’s a different, slightly less addictive product that now bears the name of his menacing alter-ego: Heisenberg Vodka from Blue Ice. Each limited edition bottle of Heisenberg […]

  • Roccbox: Portable Stone Bake Oven Can Cook a Pizza in 90 Seconds

    Roccbox: Portable Stone Bake Oven Can Cook a Pizza in 90 Seconds

    I don’t have much personal experience with portable ovens, but I imagine that they aren’t generally known for their speed and efficiency. But the Roccbox is a portable stone bake oven that can cook food so fast that once you get one you might never want to use your regular oven for anything again. Roccbox […]

    ‘An Animated History of the Hamburger’ (Video)

    A hamburger is not generally thought of as one of those things that you need to have any historical context to enjoy or appreciate. In fact, I suspect that if you brought a freshly made hamburger to some native tribe out in the middle of the jungle and presented it to the chieftain, he or […]

    Hank the Beer Tank Portable Kegerator

    We’re just getting into peak beer season in the United States, which means your chances of enjoying cold beer in a cooler full of ice are going up by the day. The ice-filled cooler method is widely used because of its convenience and simplicity, but it doesn’t necessarily result in the highest degree of freshness […]

  • Cola Maison: Syrup Specifically for Cola and Whiskey Mixes

    Cola Maison: Syrup Specifically for Cola and Whiskey Mixes

    Cola (I’m going to avoid using brand names here) makes for an interesting drink mix ingredient, at least in theory, but a lot of the ingredients that go into your average glass of cola don’t actually mix well with the more refined ingredients of whiskeys. Enter Cola Maison, a cola syrup made with all-natural ingredients specifically […]

    Kaffeeform: Recycled Coffee Grounds Can Make Coffee Cups (Photos)

    I recently saw a movie in which Paul Newman’s character woke up, stumbled to his coffee maker, realized he didn’t have any coffee left, and used the old grounds from the day before to make his morning cup. Until today, I thought that was the height of coffee ground recycling, but now I know about Kaffeeform, a material […]
