The Naughty Churro of Orange County, California is catering to the emoji crowd with a new Poop Churro that’s shaped like the popular smiling turd.
The dessert, appropriately dubbed “The Number Two” is said to consist of a chocolate churro on a bed of cookies & cream ice cream topped with crushed Oreos and Nutella. It officially “dropped” at 626 Night Market on August 5th. Check out the promo video below. [click to continue…]
Nabisco is continuing to push the Oreo flavor boundaries with a new version that features Swedish Fish-flavored filling. I have to admit, I did not see this one coming.
Without an official announcement, the limited edition release came as a surprise when it hit Kroger stores this week, and prompted a number of reviews that described the flavor and consistency as being similar to strawberry play dough and walking the fine line between candy and medicine.
A pack of 20 will set you back $2.99 and an untold amount in fuel, as they are apparently only available at Kroger stores. Whether or not they will see an expanded release remains to be seen. Check out a couple video reviews below. [click to continue…]
Although Goat Story designed this unique horn mug a tribute to a flock of goats that accidentally discovered coffee, it also bears the appearance of a powder/drinking horn, which will help present your morning joe as ammo for the day. The Goat Story Mug started as a Kickstarter project, and we’ve featured it in the past from overseas retailers, but this is the first time it has been made available in the U.S. on Amazon.
The 16oz mug is available in black and white and can easily transform into a stand for placement on flat surfaces. It also includes a set of two straps that is said to make on-the-go transport “a blast”. Check out additional pics below. [click to continue…]
Burger King’s “Whopperrito” experiment has proven successful and the chain has announced that it will be available nationwide as a limited time offering starting next week.
As previously reported, the Whopper / burrito hybrid takes the staple ingredients of the famous burger (flame-grilled beef, American cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, mayo, ketchup, pickles, and white onions) and wraps them in a tortilla – although the mayo is substituted with queso sauce.
The official Whopperrito launch date is set for August 15th, and it will remain on menus for approximately three to four months.
One of Adam Perry‘s two daughters suffers from severe food allergies and must subsist on a restricted diet that can be bland and repetitive. In order to enhance the experience, Adam has used her morning toast to create a series of impressive sculptures ranging from a drum set to a suspension bridge.
Perry told ABC News that they are intended to “get her excited about her breakfast again and to make both the girls laugh when they came down to eat.” The experience has also seen his skills improve and his following grow on social media.
“It’s just a bit of fun, but when people, comment and say it’s brightened their day somehow it feels great, so I’m going to keep going and see where the toast takes me.”

The suits were only available in Australia and have reportedly sold out already, with all proceeds heading to Ronald McDonald House charities. Check out the promo video below. [click to continue…]
The Milk Train cafe in London has created this new offering that consists of a soft serve ice cream cone surrounded by a cloud of cotton candy – making it look as if the dessert is blasting off on a mission to satisfy your sweet tooth.
The treat is available in a variety of different flavors, including vanilla, matcha and hojicha, which is a mild Japanese green tea. The bed of cotton candy can also serve as a platform for toppings such as cookies, popcorn and Japanese candy. The item is reportedly available for £4.95 (or about $6.50). Check out more pics below.

Stop-motion artist yelldesign has redefinied the term “food artist” with a series of videos showing representations of a variety of different foods being created with paper.
Dubbed “Papermeals”, the videos include dishes such as penne with meatballs, ramen, fish & chips and a banana split – all of which will no doubt trigger drooling despite the fact that they are completely inedible. Check out the videos below. [click to continue…]
Taco Bell has announced that it will be testing Frito Pie-esque “Walking Nachos” at select locations in Charlotte, NC beginning later this month.
As you can see in these photos from Brand Eating, the walking nachos come in a foil pouch and appear to contain Doritos and toppings like guacamole, sour cream, ground beef, shredded and nacho cheese, and tomatoes or some type of salsa. Plans for a national debut are currently unknown, but you can check out an additional pic below. [click to continue…]
Twitter user Lauren Rincon got a surprise recently when she discovered that her niece had eaten her Too Faced Chocolate Bar eyeshadow because it smelled like candy. Judging from the amount consumed, it also seems that the toddler didn’t seem to mind what was no doubt a terrible flavor.
Needless to say, the Twitterverse exploded with comments of concern. After calls to the manufacturer and poison control, Lauren assured everyone that the little girl is fine. The makeup, however, is another story and required “a million q-tips & napkins” to be partially salvaged. Watch the drama unfold below. [click to continue…]
