Salty Snacks

1b56_star_wars_salt_pepper_shakers

Quick heads up: If you plan on inviting a certain Sith lord over for dinner, you should know that he has a thing for pepper. If you run out, he may find your lack of pepper… disturbing. So make sure to stock up on plenty of the spicy stuff by getting this Darth Vader pepper shaker.

Naturally, every Sith lord needs a good minion, so the set comes complete with a companion Stormtrooper saltshaker.

pringles iron throne

You know what they say about Pringles, “once you pop, you can’t stop.” In this case, if you don’t stop, you can eventually build an Iron Throne! How’s that for incentive? I always prefer eating to win a throne instead of fighting a war.

Pringles shared the image above on Twitter for the season four premiere of Game of Thrones and encouraged followers to say no being hungry. Check out the tweet after the break…

DeepFriedDoritosBreadedBurger

Nick from Dude Foods came up with a burger recipe that sounds very appealing–at least to me: a deep-fried Doritos breaded burger. Honestly, I’m a big fan of putting chips in my sandwiches (there is nothing, I repeat, NOTHING, wrong with that), so this burger was a home-run in my book. Nick took a 1/3 pound burger patty, coated it in flour, egg and crushed Doritos and then deep-fried the meaty goodness for 30 seconds. He also piled lettuce, tomato, bacon and sour cream (interesting choice) onto the burger before indulging a bit.

On that note, Nick’s Doritos breaded burger will be served at Leff’s Lucky Town in Milwaukee starting tomorrow and ending on the 31. Buying one of these burgers helps a great cause too: One dollar from every burger will go towards Autism Speaks and their Light It Up Blue Campaign. So if you’re in the area, stop by, and if not, buy a plane ticket or hop in a car or hot air balloon and then stop by!

As any good adventurer knows, if you’re trekking out into the wilderness, you need to bring an ax. You know… for firewood and zombie hunting and stuff. But what if you want to make pizza out in the woods? What will you use to slice it up? Can’t use your bare hands–that’s just barbaric, sir.

Well, lucky for you, hypothetical pizza-loving woodsman, you can now use this pizza ax when you’re out in the forest. It looks like an ax, but you can’t cut trees with it. Only pizza. Please remember that.

Leave it to a crazy Russian to make a popcorn machine out of an old beer can. YouTuber CrazyRussianHacker posted a DIY video where he makes popcorn on a stove using an empty Fosters can. It’s actually pretty simple too. Although, maybe someone should tell CrazyRussian that you can use a pot to make popcorn too. Or a microwave. Honestly, whatever works.

Yum… Disodium Guanylate. I don’t know what it is. But it sounds tasty!

These new potato treats lend a whole new meaning to the idea of eating your words. Bird’s Eye is releasing Mashtags which are potatoes shaped like all sorts of different internet symbols. There are #, @, *, and it looks like there are hearts and smiley faces, too. They’ll be available in March for about $3 a bag but only in the UK. The rest of us are just #OutOfLuck.

peanut 1

Artists don’t just use paper and canvas for their work, almost any surface is game – including edibles. Steve Casino has taken his paintbrush to empty peanut shells. It’s a very specialized art, but Casino appears to have it down to a science. He carefully seals each shell, paints it, and puts the finished art in a glass dome. The process takes around 20 hours.

He takes commissions and paints portraits for weddings and as gifts, but as you can see, he’s also tackled several characters from pop culture – especially superheroes. Wolverine is pictured above, but you can also spot Hulk, Captain America, Batman, and many more in Casino’s portfolio.

See more examples of the nerdy painted nuts after the break.

cthulhu & Elder gouda lays

We’ve already touched on some of the semi-legitimate entries in the latest “Lay’s Do Us A Flavor” contest but, as the internet tends to do, some people took the concept into weirder territory.

Frog, Blood Of My Enemies, Regret.

Even American model Chrissy Teigen got in on the action.

Check out some of the tweets and a great video response from Lay’s after the break.
