Big plans are a-brewin’.
Natural Machines, a Barcelona-based company, has been working on a new 3D printer for grub called the Foodini and there’s been a major breakthrough: the company tweeted a pic of the machine actually making a pizza! It printed out the dough and pizza sauce, and then they applied the herbs and spices by hand.
Looks like Natural Machines is farther ahead in the 3D pizza printing game than NASA.
It’s not uncommon to dip things in chocolate, but French fries are a new twist. Japanese burger chain Lotteria is introducing “Dipping Fries” which are traditional French fries with a side of Ghana milk chocolate. They’ll cost 340 yen or about $3.30 and will only be available until the end of February.
The television show Bob’s Burgers features a Burger of the Day that generally boasts a ridiculously funny name and is just plain ridiculous in concept. The folks at The Bob’s Burger Experiment are on a mission to recreate each and every one in all their crazy glory. It’s still a work-in-progress, but they’re off to a great start. The picture above shows the “Pepper Don’t Preach” burger which includes black pepper and garlic topped with a creamy raspberry chevre and diced cherry peppers. Yummy.
See the So Much Thyme, So Little Parsley burger after the break…
Ok, I have to confess something: McDonald’s chicken nuggets are actually pretty decent. But what if they could be improved? Sure, you could make them healthier, or you could go in the opposite direction: Why not replace that possibly mutant chicken with some questionable pork? That sounds kinda tasty, right?
McDonald’s chains in China have recently added a new line of spicy pork nuggets to their menus. The Beijinger team did a brief taste-test of the nuggets, and they had this to say:
…these porky spheres of goodness have a crispy coating like their poultry counterparts, but the added bonus of a delicious, mildly spicy bite to them courtesy of that wonderful salt-pepper-MSG combination known as 椒盐, technically salt and pepper but so much more.
On the other hand, Heather Timmons with Quartz wasn’t so keen on the piggy nuggets:
If you were drunk, and could stop yourself from thinking about how the pork product interior was actually made, they’d probably be awesome.
Well, it sounds like the jury’s still out on the spicy pork nuggets. Looks like I’m going to have to fly to China to investigate!

Did you know that Nintendo has been making games in one form or another since 1889? The company’s a cultural icon in Japan, and to celebrate one of the company’s most famous video games, McDonald’s chains throughout the country are offering a line of Super Mario toys with their Happy Meals. Like usual, the US is going to be left out of the fun. What do we have going on right now? NFL-themed toys. Pfft.
Fans of the McRib are probably pretty happy that their tasty meat conglomeration is back on the menu at McDonald’s. I hate to do this, but have any of you actually ever seen a raw McRib? It’s unsettling to say the least.
The photo was posted on Reddit and features what appears to be a McDonald’s employee in Canada holding a frozen McRib. Doesn’t it look delicious? Mmmm… yummy.
