Weird Food

As we’ve seen in the past, Steve1989 has a thing for sampling ancient MREs. However, he recently reached a milestone by eating the oldest military ration yet – a piece of hardtack from the Civil War.

Hardtack is a cracker-like substance that lacks moisture, allowing it to remain edible for a lengthy period. However, letting an already unappetizing food age for 153 years before consumption is bound to result in some funky flavors, and Steve described them in detail in the video below.

This Ghostbusters-themed menu from Japanese fast-food chain J.S. Burgers Café might come back to haunt you.

Specifically your butthole.

Their Marshmallow Mad Burger looks interesting as a dessert. I mean, I’m a fan of both Oreos and marshmallows. Who isn’t? Of course, I’d like to know what the bun is made of and what that sauce is, but it looks fairly straightforward.

Where you start to lose me is with the “G.B. Burger” which apparently has black olive and anchovy paste, some white stuff and the ubiquitous black bun.

The “Black Chili Chips” looks like a side of potato chips with some black chili beans more white stuff, some red stuff…I..yeah, no.

Finally, we get a little ectoplasm coloring with some sort of green kiwi smoothie. I think I’ve also identified little candy burgers, green maraschino cherries…and are those green corn chips? Slimer only knows.

Enjoy? [click to continue…]

Cake artist Katherine Dey decided to use an incredibly unappetizing subject for her latest creation, fashioning a massive Madagascar Hissing Cockroach out of chocolate cake stuffed with Boston cream filling.

Even though the result was no doubt delicious, we’d imagine people still approached this thing with a fair amount of revulsion.

Check out the creative process in the video below. [click to continue…]

Spanish winemaker Gik wants to “innovate and build new things, break with the past and invent the future”. How are they going to reach that lofty goal? Blue wine.

The new offering gets its hue from a combination of “anthocyanin (a pigment found in grape skin), indigo (a dye extracted from the Isatis tinctoria plant), and a non-caloric sweetener”. The result is meant to be served chilled and reportedly tastes similar to a sweet white wine.

The company introduced the wine to Spain in a soft launch last year and are currently looking to expand into France, the Netherlands, the UK and Germany. It could also arrive in the U.S. at some point.

The founder of the blog Life of Dad started a fun cereal-inspired challenge recently, and it’s taken the Internet by storm.

The #CheerioChallenge began when Life of Dad shared a pic of a napping baby with five Cheerios balanced on its nose. The caption for the photo read, “Can you top 5??? Prove it when you do.” And with that, the challenge was on. Parents across the Web have been posting pics of their efforts to balance Cheerios on their kids’ faces. As you’ll see below, the results are highly amusing. [click to continue…]

It’s as gross as you would expect.

Granted, you could put any assortment of burgers and fries in there and the results would look the same. I would have preferred and In-N-Out smoothie though.

But only barely.

And yes, the drink is consumed at the end (*shudder*). Watch the video below if you think you can handle it. [click to continue…]

Not content with galaxy donuts, Instagram user sobeautifullyraw took the entire concept of what a donut is to the absolute limit by making them out of sushi.

The sushi donuts were created by greasing a donut mold with coconut oil before adding cooled sushi rice. The result is then embellished with black sesame, ginger, wasabi, cashew mayo and avocado. The donuts are said to be highly customizable, as evidenced by the variations created by other Instagram users below. [click to continue…]

The mad mixologists at Above Average recently whipped up a slew of summery cocktails that all feature one very cheesy ingredient: Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. These cocktails look slightly horrific, but funny enough, I’m actually craving mac and cheese right now. Check out more examples below…

After bringing us pizza in a box made of pizza, Vinnie’s Pizza of Brooklyn has debuted their next innovation: all crust pizza.

As the image above reveals, it is essentially a slice with crust on all three sides, which will be either heaven or hell based on your eating preferences. Then again, stuffing that crust would be a solution that would satisfy just about everyone.

KFC is taking it’s “finger lickin’ good” slogan to the absolute limit with a line of edible nail polish in Hong Kong.

They teamed up with ad agency Ogilvy & Mather and McCormick (the company that provides their 11 secret herbs and spices) to translate their Original Recipe and Hot & Spicy flavors for your fingernails.

At this point you might be asking “is there a weird video for this campaign?”.

You bet your ass their is…
