cheetos art 1

When you look at Cheetos, you may see a blob covered with cheese-flavored powder. Instagram user cheesecurlsofinstagram doesn’t just see the food as a snack though, he or she finds art. The Instagrammer keeps an eye out for Cheetos that resemble people or objects and curates them in a gallery. There are cheese curls that look like seahorses, people evolving, people getting executed, and so on. No word on whether the Cheetos are devoured after their moment in the spotlight or if they’re kept for posterity.

capital one 1

Redditor MaskedKoala had a problem. He couldn’t pay his Capital One bill online because he’d spilled orange juice on his keyboard, and the incident meant he couldn’t use the number “2″ key or copy and paste it in. MaskedKoala doesn’t say exactly how that interfered with his ability to pay, but Capital One didn’t question that. Instead, they sent him a note and a new keyboard with no sticking keys. It’s a nice move, sure, but it also means the customer has no excuse not to pay his bills.

See a close-up of the note after the break.

Ok, so you’re going to team up with Star-Lord and take on Thanos? Well, do you have a zany ’70s and ’80s mix-tape to help keep you occupied while you’re flying through space? Good. Got a talking raccoon with an itchy trigger finger? Great. Oh! Do you need a talking house plant/muscle? Got one of those too, huh? Good for you. Looks like you’re prepared. Wait, did you remember to bring vessels for beverages? No? Well, good thing I asked!

Check out this Guardians Of the Galaxy ceramic mug, which can hold 20 ounces of your preferred caffeinated beverage (or any liquid really, except for molten steel, because that would melt the cup). Oh, and if you plan on doing some fancy flying, you’re going to need some sort of cup with a lid, so make sure to check out the 18-ounce Guardians of the Galaxy Travel Cup after the break. Have a safe space trip!

Congrats, Red Robin! It looks like you’re the creator of the unhealthiest meal in America, according to USA Today. The Center for Science in the Public Interest recently released a report that stated that the “Monster” double burger, the “bottomless” fries and a “Monster” milkshake add up to a whopping 3,450 calories. That, for the record, is a whole lotta calories. The Cheesecake Factory was also mentioned in the study, which isn’t surprising since they are perpetually at the top of these unhealthy food lists.

Denny Marie Post, Red Robin’s chief marketing officer, noted that the meal “combines some of our most indulgent items into one meal.” She also adds that the restaurant does serve healthier items, and that patrons can order “a lettuce-wrapped turkey burger, sans cheese and bun, with a side of broccoli and a light lemonade” that only has 540 calories. But we’re pretty sure that’s on the menu just so marketing officers can say “we serve healthier items too.”

Scott with Scott’s Pizza Tours in New York is something of a pizza connoisseur. He offers tours of New York pizzerias, writes for a pizza publication (yeah, apparently that’s a real thing) and holds the Guinness World Record for the largest collection of pizza boxes. Scott paired up with Buzzfeed to review a number of popular frozen pizzas–I won’t exactly throw any spoilers your way, but the words “cardboard” and “tasteless” come up pretty often.

SharkBite Donut

While the Sharknado may have passed, Shark Week is right around the corner and Dunkin’ Donuts is getting in on the action starting August 4th with the Shark Bite Donut.

It’s designed to look like a life preserver, but if you squint, you can tell yourself it looks like teeth in flesh. Then you can bite into it and…oh, whatever, it’s a donut!

Speaking of biting into it, Dunkin’ and the Discovery Channel are also doing a “Take a Bite, Take a Pic” promotion. Just share a pic of you taking a bite out of your favorite breakfast item on either Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtag #DDSharkWeek to be eligible to win cool prizes.

The Shark Week Donut will be available at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants while supplies last.

mayo selfie

Hellmann’s, that great maker of mayonnaise, has pushed the technology of 3D printing as part of a Life Hacks campaign. You may know about those 3D printers that can create designs out of chocolate syrup. But now you can get a burger and have your selfie printed on it in mayo. Because, as we all know, food is better when it’s staring back at us with our own faces. To experience this wonder of science yourself, you just have to wait in line for the special Hellmann’s truck, let them take your photo on a smartphone, then it’ll transmit to the mayo-printer. We’re living in the future!

A video follows after the break!

tokyo final fantasy cafe

There’s something so amazing about seeing the beauty of a Final Fantasy game brought to life in the form of this Final Fantasy XIV-themed restaurant in Tokyo called the Eorzea Cafe.

They’ve definitely gone all out, from the decor to the design and even the menu. They’ve even included a bank of computers where you can play the game. Between the Moogles and the food decoration — and some appropriately named drinks (they have one called Alchemist Elixir), I can’t imagine it must be a complete blast to visit.

Check out more pictures after the break.

I can’t explain the logic behind Reebok making bacon… save for the fact that bacon is tasty, but still, this makes zero sense. Yes, Reebok makes shoes and bacon now. Deal with it, world.

Actually, the bacon is sourced by U.S. Wellness Meats, and it doesn’t have any nitrates, sweeteners or MSG and they are not cured. The bacon was passed out to folks who participated in the Reebok CrossFit Games. You probably won’t see Reebok bacon in supermarkets anytime soon, but if you’d like to learn more about it, or if you’d like to sign up for updates about where Reebok might distribute the bacon next, head on over to Reebok.com.

Ok, so this is a Photoshop by Redditor VladmirPoutine (love the name, by the way), but it’s still awesome. I’d fight side-by-side with Macklin–uh, I mean Star-Lord–with a beer and a blaster in my hands any day of the week.
