Weird Food

Once, for a brief, shining moment in time, Taco Bell offered something called “El Todos” which roughly translates to “The All” or “The Everything”—and that’s exactly what was in this food pinata. It was created by one Mark Wilson who had access to their Innovation Kitchen to come up with a new idea, and that idea boiled down to putting every single thing on their menu into one order. Sadly, this doesn’t exist on an actual Taco Bell menu, but just imagine how many people you could feed with this thing!

The fifth season of The Walking Dead is about to begin, and Fox teamed up with two London cooks to make burgers that taste like humans. Seriously.

Miss Cakehead and Chef James Tomlinson from Mess London made the burgers from a combination of pork, chicken livers, veal, and bone marrow.

No, they didn’t eat humans to see if they had just the right flavor.

Instead, they looked at interviews with actual cannibals like Issei Sagawa and William Seabrook to get the right taste and texture. The burgers will be available for free on September 30th at a pop-up London restaurant called the Terminus Tavern. It’s location is a secret so you’ll have to watch the #TerminusTavern hashtag on twitter if you want to find out where it is.

gummy-python-8-feet-long

If you like gummi candy, then this tasty treat should be #1 on your Christmas wish list this year. It’s a 26-pound gummy python that measures nearly 8-feet long. He packs 36,000 calories and comes in either blue raspberry and green apple or red cherry and blue raspberry. And just in case you’re not sure it’ll feed the hungry masses at your next party, they say it has 306 servings so you’ll probably be just fine.

kit-kat sandwich 1

Nick of Dude Foods is known for his weird food combinations, and I think the latest one takes the grand prize for being bizarre. He coated and deep fried two KitKat candy bars and then used them instead of bread for a grilled cheese sandwich. Yes, you read that right, it’s a deep fried KitKat bar grilled cheese sandwich. He claims it’s tasty:

Honestly, looking back at it right now it doesn’t even look that appetizing, but let me tell you, it was pretty damn good!

No, it doesn’t look appealing, and I’ll have to take his word that it’s edible because I don’t foresee putting that creation into my mouth anytime soon.

gummy larvae 1

There’s a little coffee stand in a Japan shipping harbor that serves the best tasting bugs around. Why’s that? Because Akai Tento no Koohii Ten (The Red Tent Coffee Shop) is famous for making bugs that are actually gummy candy.

Gummy on the outside, blueberry jam guts on the inside, these insect larvae come in a variety of species and sizes for ever palate.

Plus, when you squeeze them, goo comes out. Yummy!

Ready or not, here they come. Ramen filled donuts are a thing in Japan. We’ve already got ramen burgers, so donuts are the next logical step. Japanese restaurant chain Osaka Ohsho is making the special donuts for a limited time only.

They might sound odd, but if you think savory rather than sweet they start to look pretty good. The ramen donuts even won a competition which featured 100 entries by employees of Osaka Ohsho. You can try them for about $2 each through September 30th.

Whenever I see ice cream vendors with cartoon and geek themed popsicles, I’m always tempted to fork over money. It’s like some kind of instinct. I should know better though because the contents of the package rarely offer what’s advertised; instead, the eyes are wonky, the colors are melted together, etc. It might be traumatic for children.

Dorkly’s rounded up some cartoon popsicles that didn’t get it quite right, and the list features characters like Tweety Bird, Pikachu, Batman, and more. The pictures are fabulous and a little scary.

We’ve already seen a burger with black buns, and that was weird enough. But this time Burger King went even further with black cheese.

According to NariNari, the Kuro (Black) burgers will be available in two varieties they’re calling Kuro Pearl and Kuro Diamond. They have buns and cheese made with bamboo charcoal, an onion and garlic sauce made with squid ink and beef patties made with black pepper.

You can get these limited edition burgers beginning later this month. Black cheese though? Yuck.

pumpkin spice Oreo

Given all of the novelty Oreo flavors that have been released lately, it should come as no surprise that Pumpkin Spice Oreos are coming to stores soon.

Between these and the Caramel Apple Oreos, I’d say you’ve got your Halloween cookies handled.

Some lucky ducks got samples and people have a variety of reactions, so far. They range from amazing to ick, but the best comparison I’ve seen comes from Erin Chack who notes:

It tastes like what I imagine a fall-themed Yankee Candle would taste like.

If you want to try them yourself, they come out September 24th and will be around for 6 to 8 weeks or while supplies last.

You can tell just how much your sense of smell affects a food’s flavor every time you’ve got a stuffy nose. With that in mind, Molecule-R has created the Aromaspoon and Aromafork to add scents to your food to hide or change they way they taste.

It works by adding a liquid aroma to a special pill-sized diffuser in the silverware. When you bring it to your mouth, the smell adds to what you’re eating. You could make your least favorite veggie taste like bubble gum or try combining complimentary foods to create something new. Each kit comes with 21 different aromas, so you’re sure to come up with some interesting combinations.
