The latest installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise hits theaters May 26th and I, ever the optimist, settled in at a press screening with a box of Red Vines and zero expectations. Read the review on Nerd Approved

Famed South Korean chef Choi Hyun-seok just debuted a new cooking show with a WoW theme. The show, called Wow! Recipe? The Meal Is Ready, will create WoW-themed recipes and feature guest chefs who’ll cook and share their own WoW stories. It’s officially backed by Blizzard. [click to continue…]


Chef Mitchie of Mitchies Munchies created this amazing Star Trek tridimensional chess set as part of the Simi Torch Team Collaboration; a group of cake decorators and sugar artists who use isomalt to make gorgeous creations.

Oh, and they use blowtorches, which is always cool.

It’s also a lot easier to play than the real thing. Just eat your way to victory. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]


There you are one day, home with your sick 4-year old, and you decide to make pancakes with the Howl’s Moving Castle Calcifer frying pan you just bought. Look at the picture from the store. It’s easy. It’ll be fun, right?


Calcifer will turn your perfectly peaceful pancake into a phantasmic gluten nightmare. At least that’s what happened for Twitter user @poyoyome. [click to continue…]


Last week, we featured Outlander wine. This week, we discovered that official Game Of Thrones wine on the way. You may be familiar with Game of Thrones beer by Brewery Ommegang, but wine is the official beverage of GoT, so it’s only fitting they get their own special vintages.

Vintage Wine Estates will release three different Game of Thrones wines—a red blend and a Chardonnay have a suggested retail of $19.99, while the Cabernet Sauvignon will retail around $39.99. They should be available starting in March 2017.

I wish the names of the wine were in the spirit of vintners in the Seven Kingdoms, but the bottles are pretty and it’s wine. Hard to go wrong.

How sweet is this? Delicut Cakes has created this Mouse Guard Cake that enables you to enjoy David Petersen’s comic book Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard as a reader and an eater! Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]


Yep, you read that right. An Outlander wine collection has been created with four vintages; the NV Claire Randall Vin Blanc, 2015 Frank Randall Vin de Pays d’Oc Cabernet Sauvignon, 2015 Claire Fraser Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, and the 2014 Jamie Fraser Paso Robles Red Blend.

The collection from Lot 18 was limited to only 2500 bottles per character and everything has sold out but the 2015 Frank Randall Vin de Pays d’Oc Cabernet Sauvignon at the time of writing. Still, the details are worth checking out if you’re a fan. Take a look at all of the awesome labels below. [click to continue…]


First, there was Unicorn Tears gin, and now you can get drunk on the spicy tears of a Phoenix.

Phoenix Tears Spiced Rum is Caribbean rum with brown sugar, dried fruit, cinnamon, and ginger notes for both sweet and spicy flavors. Plus, a gold shimmer for a little extra magic.

Of course, we can’t support any product that involves making mythical creatures cry—but it does sound delicious. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]


Sanrio’s lazy egg Gudetama has become a spirit animal for some people, myself included. In fact, his little “meh” face has become popular enough to land him on these new bags by Loungefly.

Gudetama backpacks, Gudetama purses, Gudetama coinpurses and wallets—it’s an eggapalooza of sleepy cuteness and I want all of it. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]


As you all know, Alton Brown has been known to delve into the nerdy side of food. He loves to experiment and try techniques, tools and ingredients that are outside the box. But cooking with squirrel isn’t what you would call “Food Network friendly”.

Fortunately, there’s the Internet.

Brown took to Facebook to discuss his plans to create an Internet cooking show that is basically a sequel to Good Eats, only free of corporate restrictions on things like his language and choice of ingredients.

I don’t know whether to be thrilled or terrified. I guess I’m both.

Hear what the man himself had to say about the upcoming show in the video below. [click to continue…]
