If you love booze and sailing vessels, then get ready to add an item to your Christmas list.

This “Prestige Decanters Constellation 1797” is a ship-in-a-bottle liquor/wine decanter/dispenser that comes complete with mouth-blown, lead-free borosilicate glass, a hand-crafted oak base and an airtight and leakproof stainless steel spigot.

The decanter can hold 1150 ml of alcohol and will set you back $120. Check out additional pics and videos below. [click to continue…]

London-based food blogger Annem Hobson has introduced a way to countdown the days to Christmas and cheese simultaneously with this cheese advent calendar.

The calendar is a variation of the traditional advent calendars that reward people with chocolate every day of December until Christmas, but instead of containing candy, this one offers a different dairy product every day. See more below. [click to continue…]

The movie Napoleon Dynamite and tater tots are inexorably linked. Realizing the commercial potential of this bond, Burger King reunited Jon Heder and Efren Ramirez (aka Napoleon and Pedro) to herald the limited time return of the chain’s cheesy tots.

The downside is that they don’t appear in character – but since a sequel will probably never happen, we have to take what we can get. Watch it below. [click to continue…]

Taco Bell unleashed another chip brand collaboration in the form of Cheetos Quesadillas, then inexplicably offered them exclusively in the Philippines, and only for a limited time. Fortunately, we have a recipe the rest of the world can use:

Step 1: Put Cheetos in a quesadilla.

For those of you who are in the Philippines, Taco Bell reports that the quesadillas can be had at Taco Bell Gateway, TriNoma, Alabang Town Center and Cyberpark Tower. There’s no word on how long they will be available, but as the social posts below illustrate, people are sharing their thoughts on its taste, which is apparently magnificent. [click to continue…]

If you’re like me, you enjoy grasping at any shred of evidence that eating unhealthy foods can actually provide some positive benefits. Well, here’s another example that we can use to kid ourselves. [click to continue…]

SpongeBob SquarePants animator Sean Charmatz is giving the world a glimpse of the “Secret Life of Stuff” while simultaneously showing us how our perspective on mundane objects can change with the addition of a face and some stick limbs.

A bunch of examples can be seen in the video below, which includes (among others) a strawberry lobotomy, a marshmallow’s swim in hot chocolate, a mournful donut, and a wad of gum’s final moment. [click to continue…]

Chefs at the Sushi Chef Institute in Torrance, California created a sushi roll so enormous that required something akin to a samurai sword to cut.

It doesn’t seem to be a record setter (the largest sushi roll stretched 8,273ft apparently), but it does look pretty fantastic. You can check out a video of the giant roll coming together below. [click to continue…]

Kosaka Daimaou (aka Piko Taro) has become a sensation following his delightfully weird ditty “Pen-Pineapple Apple-Pen” (PPAP), which actually became the shortest song to ever reach the US Billboard Hot 100 charts.

His newfound fame brought Piko Taro to the Japanese version of Sesame Street, where he joined Elmo and Cookie Monster to pay musical tribute to the cookie with “Cookie-Butter-Choco-Cookie” (CBCC). Watch the video below. [click to continue…]

It seems that Nabisco may be gearing up to release Apple Pie-flavored Oreos, which would make a lot of sense. Well, a lot more sense than Swedish Fish-flavored Oreos.

Junkbanter has reported that the new flavor will be released around Labor Day, and since that was back in September, it appears that we’re getting a super early announcement (or somebody is confused with the calendar).

If it turns out that they are legit, they will reportedly consist of two vanilla wafer cookies stuffed with apple pie-flavored cream. While they sound awesome and would certainly fit in with the other offbeat Oreo flavors we’ve seen in the past, we’ll have to take the news with a grain of salt for the time being.

The easiest way to repackage even the most mundane objects for the 21st century is by slapping a USB charger on it. Case in point, this breadbasket by Sister Schubert’s.

The “Basket of Warmth” is more than just a basket with a device charger, however—it will also keep bread warm. Details on its inner workings haven’t been released, but it is suggested that the heat is derived from the charging process itself.

The basket is intended to take mobile devices away from people at the dinner table so they can bond with other humans instead of a screen – something that would come in especially handy (or disastrous) with Thanksgiving around the corner. However, at this point the basket is merely a prototype, and there’s no word on when (or if) it will eventually hit store shelves. Check out an additional pic below. [click to continue…]
