Vermeer probably never thought that one day people would be eating representations of his masterpiece “Girl With a Pearl Earring”, but that’s exactly what’s happening at L.A.-based Bohnhoff & Kent, where food artists used the painting as the inspiration for one of their signature cake-filled chocolate “gourmet stuffed candy bars”.

As you’ll see by the creative process after the jump, the completely edible creation looks delicious and far too beautiful to eat – meaning your stomach and eyes will be fighting each other as you watch.

This concept Lolo Lid is basically a special lid that grips a beer can—allowing it to be hidden inside a coffee cup.

The lid, which is currently the focus of a Kickstarter campaign, will not only provide an air barrier that acts as an insulator for your brew, it will allow you to drink beer where you probably…definitely shouldn’t be drinking beer.

Check out the project video after the break…

As if watching your waistline isn’t hard enough during the latter part of the year, Dunkin Donuts just made it damn near impossible with two new flavors that will be available for a limited time this fall.

The first, a Pumpkin Cheesecake Square, features pumpkin cheesecake filling inside a plain donut which is topped with graham cracker crumbs, white drizzle and orange colored icing.

The second, a Reese’s Peanut Butter Square, is a joint effort with the Hershey Company and sports Reese’s peanut butter filling with chocolate icing and orange colored drizzle.

These new offerings hit shelves nationwide starting today and will continue to be offered through October 2015.

Mao the cat was recently given the opportunity to eat a banana, a challenge that proved to be formidable, but resulted in the type of video that the internet “eats up”.

Artist Leon Keer has created some perspective artwork on a boardwalk alongside the Malta Street Art Festival that, when viewed from above, makes the area look like it’s being invaded by giant gummy bears during the Battle of Candyland.

The work features a number of massive gummy bears moving toward a downed comrade, who might have become the victim of a sneak attack launched by one of the equally-sized Swedish Fish that we can only assume are lurking in the nearby waters.

Cincinnati-based “Tom Will Make” is giving everyone an opportunity to learn about topography while protecting their furniture from dreaded rings with this set of four Topo Coasters.

Multiple layers of cork mimic the terrain of the Red River Gorge in Kentucky (more locations will follow apparently), and each of the 4″ x 4″ x 1/4″ coasters is backed with a layer of veneer engraved with the corresponding geographic info.

The only drawback could be careless can/glass placement, resulting in tippage that transforms the mini gorge into a raging river of beer.

Peeps’ collection of fall flavors will soon expand (in the microwave for sure) with a new Pumpkin Spice offering that will provide a marshmallow texture to the vast pumpkin spice invasion that saturates the season.

The new flavor will take is place along caramel apple and candy corn-flavored Peeps, and are expected to hit shelves on August 31.

We can only assume McDonald’s employee Garrett either really needs money (he does work at McDonald’s after all), or really needs attention – because he was willing to lick a grease trap for $5. As if that wasn’t enough, he did it twice.

That’s a whopping $2.50 per lick. I wouldn’t lick a grease trap for anything under $50. I have standards.

Watch the grossness after the jump.

Leeds-based Lou Lou P’s Delights discovered that a loaf of bread could be made to look an awful lot like a sleeping cat, and proceeded to bake the “catloaf” seen above. The success of this experiment then led to catloaf family seen after the jump, both of which would no doubt be the appetizer of choice at any internet-themed dinner party.
