Japan has out America-ed America with the American Cherry Pie Frappuccino. This glorious beverage is intended to capture the flavor of a cherry pie topped with ice cream. It even features a lid made from pie crust that you have to pierce with a straw. It just might be the best thing Starbucks has ever done. [click to continue…]

Maxwell’s Bar And Grill In London is offering a new calorie explosion appropriately dubbed the “Cheesebomb”. It actually has us questioning whether or not there is such a thing as too much cheese. [click to continue…]

These cupcakes from Milk and Water Baking Co are so colorful that Lisa Frank took notice. I’m sure they taste better than your Trapper Keeper. [click to continue…]

Somewhere there’s a restaurant that serves up a pile of candy and icing that may or may not include a waffle. Apparently, this mysterious and unabashedly unhealthy locale also serves up similar Kit Kat and Kinder-themed waffles. I need to know where it is…for research purposes.

Just when you thought you had your fill of Girl Scout cookies for the year, Broad Street Dough Co. in Oakhurst, New Jersey goes and does this. Behold their Samoas, Thin Mints, and Tagalongs donuts. [click to continue…]

New York-based pastry chef (and inventor of the cronut) Dominique Ansel is back at the innovation game—this time with interlocking, geometric churros.

Dubbed “Churroduo”, the offering comes with joined sesame/cinnamon sugar and black sesame/black sugar pyramids as well as a caramel dipping sauce.

For the time being, they can only be had at Ansel’s Tokyo bakery, although he is considering selling them at his London and NYC locations as well. Why the answer to this quandary would be anything other than “let’s do it” is beyond me. [click to continue…]

Stranger Burgers

Lucky Chip, a restaurant chain in England, came up with a clever way to take down the Demogorgon. They made it into a tasty burger! It features pickled onion, cheddar cheese, and a meat patty stuffed with gorgonzola.

There’s also an Eggo-themed burger that Eleven would love. It features waffles, American cheese, and peanut butter and jelly. The burgers will be available this month at the Lucky Chip locations in Dalston and Camden. Check out both burgers in the pics below. [click to continue…]

Pokémon has never been hotter, juicier and more delicious than it is at the Down N’ Out CBD pop-up in Sydney, Australia.

These adorable Pikachu, Bulbasaur and Charmander Pokéburgers are available in “limited supply” until Sunday, September 3rd for $15 ($11.44 US). Apparently, the flavors and ingredients are inspired by the character, and each burger is served with a “Pokéburg” card that explains what’s inside. I think it’s safe to say that the Charmander burger is going to be spicy. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Here Comes The Mufgel

Say hello to the Cronut’s slightly demented cousin: the “Mufgel”. Scot Rossillo of Brooklyn’s The Bagel Store (the same joint behind the famous rainbow bagel) semi-invented the muffin/bagel monstrosity this past July.

Rossillo noted to Gothamist that inspiration came in the form of a radio commercial that actually coined the name “Mufgel” while poking fun at crazy food trends in NYC. Yes, we’re living in a world where jokes based on food crazes become new food crazes. Nothing is sacred.

Rossillo also noted to Gothamist that he makes 42 Mufgels each day, and he usually sells out by closing time. Well, the Mufgel looks delicious, but is it just me or does the name sound like a terrible hair-care product? Check out more pics and the inspirational radio commercial below. [click to continue…]

Chicken and Sons restaurant in Sydney, Australia has devised a new concept item that combines a cup holder, booze and beef into a single burger.

The $22 ($16 US) “Bourbon Burgel” consists of an Angus beef patty, American cheese, pickles, “special sauce,” bourbon-glazed bacon, and jalapeno-bourbon barbecue sauce on a sesame bagel bun. In the middle of the burger is a cutout housing a shot of Bulleit bourbon with even more bacon.

Sounds great, but the best part is going to be nursing that beefy hangover.
