These stawberry and lemon-flavored hot dogs can be purchased at what appears to be gas station in central Honshu in Japan. You’ve got to wonder if they actually taste any good. As a general policy, buying hot dogs in a gas station does not end well so we’re not so sure about these funky flavors.

Strawberry flavored milk is one thing, but Japan is now getting strawberry milk flavored Pepsi. It will be called “Pink Cola” and it is, in fact, very pink. This will be a limited edition flavor that will be made available beginning starting on December 9th, but it isn’t the first time it’s made an appearance. Pink Cola first went on sale in Japan back in 2011, so this return visit must mean it was a hit.

Wow, I’m thinking I need to meet Jessie Oleson Moore and shake her hand. She made pretzels that were filled with chocolate and peanut butter for a baking contest. She used a recipe by Elizabeth Bennet, and she made the pretzels using canned breadstick dough. The filling was made using a combination of peanut butter, cocoa, egg yolk and whipping cream. Magnificent.

The bacon weave is back! It seems like it’s been a while since Nick from Dude Foods decided to use the bacon weave for a dish, so I’m kind of happy to see that he used the technique for his new Bacon Weave Ice Cream Sandwich. In order to make this rather special creation, Nick made two bacon weaves and then used a reciprocating saw to cut a one-inch thick circle of frozen ice cream. Oh, and for the record, Nick mentions that he was kind of amazed that he didn’t slice off his finger, so you might want to utilize a safer technique before trying this at home.

Whoopie pies are typically sweet, but did you know that you can also make a savory version, as well? The Vulgar Chef came up with a cheesy twist on the classic dessert with his new Mac And Cheese Whoopie pie.

Interestingly, the chef had a fairly unique reasoning for coming up with this dish: He casually flipped through the Thug Kitchen Cookbook, didn’t care for the healthy alternative recipes he came across, and decided to make a “completely filthy” dish as a form of catharsis. So, he made pie using macaroni and cheese (those were the buns) and the filling was made from Easy Cheese canned-cheese. Yum?

If you’re like me, you probably thought there was no way that KFC could ever top the Double Down. For the uninitiated, the monstrous Double Down sandwich was basically bacon and cheese smashed between two pieces of fried chicken.

Well, I was wrong. They went and added more meat.

KFC Korea unveiled what they’re calling the “Zinger Double Down King”. It features a burger patty that’s stuffed between two chicken patties, and yes, the bacon and cheese is still in there somewhere. It’s insane. It’s horrendous. But… but… I can’t look away.

cheeseburger stuffed in a donut

Residents of Philadelphia: please go to PYT Burger so I can live vicariously through you. The burger joint’s menu looks mouthwatering, but one creation in particular has caught the attention of my stomach. Meet the D’oh Nut burger. It’s a glazed donut bun stuffed with a beef patty and american cheese. The whole thing is topped with bacon. Yowza.

Wait! Don’t eat these apples! They’re poison… oh, wait. No, they’re not poisonous. They’re just made to look terribly deadly. Actually, it’s homemade caramel apple with some black gel food coloring added in. They look great and will make a fun treat for any Halloween party.

If you’d like to make these for yourself, head on over to Simply Delicious for the recipe.

Pumpkinstein is the work of Tony Dighera of Cinagro Farms who created a mold that forces the pumpkins to grow in to the shape of Frankenstein’s face. He notes:

“If it’s not right, it can accelerate the rotting of the fruit. There’s also the timing of mold placement. It has to be done with the fruit’s small enough to fit inside, but there’s a risk the fruit will turn during it’s growing process and snap away from its stem.”

Dighera grew 5000 of these this year and sold them for $75 each, completely selling out before they were even harvested. Pumpkinstein has been such a hit that he plans to make them the focus of his 40-acre farm, producing 30-40,000 Pumpkinsteins each year.

Why eat a Big Mac with bread buns when you can make a version with macaroni and cheese buns? Dude Foods was inspired by a reader to make a macaroni and cheese Big Mac so he got the sandwich from McDonald’s, got rid of the buns, and created this. While it makes the sandwich difficult to eat, I have to admit it does look like grade A comfort food.
