  • Arby’s Oreo Bites: Oreo Doughnut Holes Served Warm

    Arby’s Oreo Bites: Oreo Doughnut Holes Served Warm

    Good day for extremely unhealthy fast food delicacies today. First we had Taco Bell Nacho Fries, and now I find out about Arby’s Oreo Bites, another example of two junk food staples coming together to benefit humanity. In fact, it might be more accurate to say that they’re three junk food staples in one, since Oreo Bites are […]

  • Taco Bell Nacho Fries Now Available

    Taco Bell Nacho Fries Now Available

    Get in the car and head to your nearest fast food row, and you can do what I call the Taco Bell Fry-Run. This involves going to the Taco Bell drive thru, ordering food, then driving to a nearby burger place and getting fries. This quaint tradition may be on the verge of extinction, though, […]

  • Museum of Ice Cream Extends Miami Engagement to February 26th

    Museum of Ice Cream Extends Miami Engagement to February 26th

    Since 2016, the Museum of Ice Cream has been coming to select cities, delighting the locals, and leaving like some frozen, sugary Santa Claus. The latest city to have the privilege is Miami, Florida, where the museum has decided to extend its stay through February 26th, despite its original closing date of January 31st. More interesting than […]

  • ‘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 […]

  • Skittles Super Bowl Ad Will Be Seen by Only One Person (Video)

    Skittles Super Bowl Ad Will Be Seen by Only One Person (Video)

    Despite mountains of media hype to the contrary, I think the whole Super Bowl commercial fervor has been pretty played out for quite a few years now. An inspired mind at Skittles HQ must have realized this, because the brand has decided to do something pretty radical in the field of advertising: Create a “real, […]

  • 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.
