Dan Whalen of “The Food in my Beard” blog recently had a moment of inspiration that led to the creation of the Grilled Cheese Taco.

In place of tortillas or shells, Dan calls for grilled cheese sandwiches made from bread sliced with a “really long bias”, while the stuffing consists of conventional taco favorites.

“The taste is as you would expect,” Whalen explained. “The flavors of a grilled cheese and a taco in one, but it creates something greater than the sum of its parts because of the crazy way it looks and the texture when ground beef starts to soak into the bread. The crisp lettuce and fresh pico is also important to balance out the heavy bread cheese and meat.”

Thankfully, Dan has created an easy recipe that you can check out here. There’s also an additional mouth-watering pic below. [click to continue…]

After being admitted to the hospital with bronchitis-induced pneumonia, 35-year-old Jake Booth of Bonita Springs, Florida had a heart attack and fell into a coma. As he was unconscious for 48 days, doctors were worried that he may have suffered brain damage.

Those fears were quickly put to rest when Booth came to and said “I want Taco Bell”.

Unfortunately, it would be another 22 days before Booth was able to eat solid food. But when he was finally cleared, he was presented with a bag of long-awaited deliciousness. According to his brother, Jason Schwartz:

“We’d all been waiting an entire month for him to eat those tacos. It was symbolic of the entire thing — more of a metaphor of him having woken up and being given a second chance at life.”

As we can see in the image above, Booth clearly enjoyed his reunion with Taco Bell. Based on his clear dedication to the chain, I’m sure many would join me in saying “Give this man an advertising deal” because he’s got some bills to pay.

Finns love a sauna, and everyone knows that a Whopper tastes better when marinated in your own salty juices. With that in mind, Burger King had a eureka moment.

The Burger King spa includes a sauna that allows customers to relax with up to 14 other people while taking advantage of 48” LED screen TV (a 55″ TV with PlayStation 4 is available in the the adjacent lounge). Beyond that, they will be able to stare at walls that read “Home of the Whopper” while wiping down with towels emblazoned with the Burger King logo.

The spa is located on the ground floor of the Mannerheimintie branch of Burger King in Helsinki, Finland and is said to be “perfect for social gatherings”. Customers can even order while they sweat. More after the break…

Ferrara Candy Company has teamed up with 7-Eleven to create Trolli Sour Brite Weird Beards, which are essentially sour gummies shaped like pro basketball player James Harden’s bearded head.

The offerings are available in red/yellow, pink/blue, and orange/green, but are only on sale until June 30th, coinciding with the national basketball playoffs. For it all to make (some) sense, we’ll just have to pretend that the Houston Rockets haven’t already been knocked out of contention.

YouTuber “Tito4re” is giving the world a cookware casting lesson by creating an aluminum skillet using a cast iron example as a mold.

For those unfamiliar with the process, it involves (among other things) a wooden box, sand, more sand, pressure and molten metal. The video below documents the entire process, from creating the impression in compacted sand all the way to cooking an egg.

Since gummy bears are apparently conspiring to take over the world, the Hydraulic Press Channel decided that they needed to be dealt with. However, instead of handling the job by eating them, they were placed in a hydraulic press.

Even the angry and dangerous giant gummy was taken out, and their destruction was complete – although the bears’ nimble gumminess did help them attempt an oozing escape.

Not much is known about this cat. All we have are these pictures of it really, really enjoying a cake in a little birthday hat. That’s all the Internet needed.

The entire series of photos can be seen below. Let’s assume that the cake is made from some with cat-safe ingredients. With that in mind, you can commence cuteness overload.

Mike Warren (a.k.a. “mikeasaurus”) has created a terrifying super blender that combines the appliance with a gasoline-powered chainsaw and a motorcycle throttle.

The device is said to produce the “most extreme” margaritas, daiquiris, and other blended drinks with 37cc two-stroke power. However, he thankfully opted to replace the chainsaw blade with a conventional bike chain.

Check out the awesome demo/promo video below.
