Activision recently unveiled plans for a brand new quest in Destiny that has fans a little ticked off. The expansion, called The Taken King, will feature a new “never-before-seen, multi-stage mission in [upcoming expansion] The Taken King that will test the speed and strategic abilities of Destiny players in new ways.”

However, it’s only available to Destiny fans once they purchase a can of spasm-inducing Red Bull.

During the Expo Milano 2015 in Italy, a group of pizza makers broke the Guinness World Record for cooking up what’s officially the longest pizza ever. The pizza (a classic Margherita) clocked in at an astounding 1,595.45 meters in length, which is just under a mile long.

General Mills is officially jumping aboard the natural ingredients train. Much like Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and Panera have planned with their offerings, General Mills has announced that they will remove artificial colors and flavors from their entire line of cereal products.

Artificial colors like Red 40, Yellow 6 and Blue 1 will be phased out and replaced with colors made using spices and fruit and vegetable concentrates. The process will begin with Cocoa Puffs, Reese’s Puffs and Trix making the switch by the end of the year. The process will be completed in 2017.

Post is gearing up to celebrate summer by combining the flavors of rainbow sherbet ice cream with Pebbles cereal in a new offering that will be hitting select store shelves sometime soon – albeit for a limited time. So, if you end up loving them, know that they will disappear with the fall and wind up as one of those summer flings that ended too soon.

The Fantastic Four are coming to Denny’s to clobber your intestines with new “Slamtastic 4″ menu items that include the Invisible Woman Slam, Human Torch Skillet, Thing Burger with “Thing Sauce” (whatever that is), and Fantastic Four-Cheese Omelette. If you aren’t done after that feast, then there’s the Doctor Doom Lava Cake which, if I’m honest,looks like the best part of the whole menu.

If you aren’t familiar with Crystal Pepsi, it was part of the clear soda fad that came and went quickly the early 1990s. However, we are now learning that it may actually be poised for a comeback after competitive eater / Crystal Pepsi fan Kevin Strahle tweeted that he had received a letter from the company on Crystal Pepsi stationery that stated:

“We’ve had customers ask us to bring back their favorite products before, but never with your level of enthusiasm and humor… We definitely hear you and your followers and we think you’ll be happy with what’s in store… Stay tuned.”

AdAge confirmed with PepsiCo that the letter is genuine, but reps wouldn’t reveal any additional details other than “Crystal Pepsi fans are going to be happy with what we have planned”.

It looks like you may be able to skip the drive-thru and still get your fix of Dunkin’ Donuts sometime in the near future. Dunkin’ Donuts is currently privately testing mobile ordering which includes a delivery option. A “more public test” will take place later this year with the live rollout beginning next year. The delivery option will initially be limited to select locations.

Of course, Dunkin’ Donuts is one of several major companies that have been jumping on the delivery bandwagon as of late. Chipotle and Starbucks have also begun experimenting with delivery. Word is that Taco Bell and KFC will soon follow.

Frappuccinos and donuts and fried chicken will get to your face with a bare minimum of calories burned. What a time to be alive.
