  • 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 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 […]

  • Gateau Mignon Kit Kat Bars are Filled with Cake

    Gateau Mignon Kit Kat Bars are Filled with Cake

    Ah, the Kit Kat bar, a decadent treat if enjoyed properly, that is, by eating all three bars at once and making no apologies. In Japan, though, Nestle has been experimenting with new ways to manufacture the Kit Kat bar, as with the new Gateau Mignon Kit Kat with a premium cake filling. The Gateau […]

  • McDelivery Collection: McDonald’s Getting in on Apparel Game

    McDelivery Collection: McDonald’s Getting in on Apparel Game

    First it was KFC Ltd, and now it’s the McDelivery Collection, a line of limited edition streetwear launched by McDonald’s to commemorate the impending launch of McDelivery, which allows users to access the dangerous prospect of Mickey D’s home delivery courtesy of UberEATS. Putting aside the question of whether being able to order a Double […]

  • KFC Ltd: A Ridiculous New Merchandise Line from The Colonel

    KFC Ltd: A Ridiculous New Merchandise Line from The Colonel

    KFC has handily surpassed Burger King and all its other competitors in the race to come up with the most ridiculous promotional gimmicks. Their latest almost seems quaint compared to launching a chicken sandwich into space – it’s KFC Ltd, a new line of Colonel-branded merchandise. The KFC Ltd collection includes socks, pillowcases, ironic t-shirts […]
