  • National Burrito Day Means Free Food

    National Burrito Day Means Free Food

    Today, apparently, is National Burrito Day. That means above all that you should go out and eat a burrito, even if none of the promotions I’m going to list here are available to you. It also means free content for content peddlers like myself, but that’s more of an inside-baseball observation than something relevant to […]

    McDonald’s Signature Garlic White Cheddar Sandwich

    We all know the fast food industry is going through a rough patch right now. People are looking for more from their food than just empty calories, and the big chains have resorted to all manner of promotional stunts in order to get some free viral publicity.

    Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager Aged on Jim Beam Barrel Staves

    Beer and whiskey is mighty risky, but now there’s a way to bring the two somewhat spiritually together without having to employ any kind of spurious bourbon loophole.

    ‘The Glenlivet Code': An Online Game Involving a Mystery Whiskey

    The Glenlivet is giving you a chance to see how sharp your palate is compared to other drinkers across the globe. It’s called The Glenlivet Code, and it’s probably the only online game on the internet that requires a specific bottle of single malt in order to play.

  • Pepsi J-Cola: For “Heavy Users” of Soda in Japan

    Pepsi J-Cola: For “Heavy Users” of Soda in Japan

    Pepsi’s great, and with the possible exception of hardcore Coke partisans we all love it. But sometimes you require a deeper, purer cola fix, and in North America and other places that aren’t Japan, you’ve had to resort to bootleg black market colas in order to fill that need.
