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.

BigMacnCheese1

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.

This doesn’t make any sense, but it’s still one of the coolest awards ever. This huge green macaron made by French pastry chef Pierre Hermé was a prize at the Sumo Senshuraku championship. Maybe it helps the competitors retain their ample physiques?

snickers-donut-bar

LA-based donut shop/culinary dream factory California Donuts has a rather unique donut that’s been garnering quite a bit of attention lately. It’s called the Snickers Bar Donut. Why? Because it features an entire Snickers candy bar inside of a flippin’ donut.

Mind blown? Yeah, well it gets even better: the donut is topped with peanuts and chocolate chips too. So if I were you, I’d head on over to California Donuts and pick up one of these tasty treats. The shop’s Instagram page makes it look like the Snickers Bar Donut is available intermittently, so just check before you decide to pop over for a visit.

deep fried psl

The baking genius behind deep fried tequila shots has come up with a new delicious sounding fall treat: deep fried pumpkin spice latte. The Starbucks drink is all the rage this time of year, and Oh, Bite It has mixed the beverage with cake. Cubes of pound cake were dipped into a pumpkin spice latte and fried in hot oil until they became golden on all sides. It’s enough to make me consider buying a deep fryer.

Get all the details at Oh, Bite It.

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.
