Nestle Japan is offering cat lovers the opportunity to take their relationship to the next level with a fancy meal prepared so you and your feline friend can dine together.
A chef will come to a customer’s house to cook and serve courses for kitty with Nestle’s new MonPetit cat food—beginning with a prepared pouch of MonPetit maguro and bonito, then MonPetit soup with maguro, crab, and sardines, a main course of MonPetit roast chicken with vegetable sauce and a dessert of MonPetit seafood treats.
The human will not be fed cat food per se, but will be served dishes with similar ingredients.
The service is only available for the month of December and customers must live near Tokyo and be able to cover the 22,222 yen (US$180) price tag.

After watching Master sushi chef Hiroyuki Terada perform a work of art in the video below, I’m convinced that a Big Mac is better in sushi form.
Master chef Terada transformed the burgers while still using all of the original ingredients—everything, from the buns to the patty make an appearance in the final dish.

In January, Nestle Japan is planning to release a limited edition series of 500 Kit-Kat bars wrapped in gold leaf. The $17 bars will be available exclusively at Nestle’s Kit-Kat specialty store “Chocolatory” in celebration of the store welcoming over a million visitors since opening last year.
If you’re lucky enough to nab one, maybe you should put it away for a rainy day. Wait for the price of gold to rise and sell it to some idiot on eBay and make your fortune.

A restaurant called Plan Check in Los Angeles is offering a unique “ketchup leather” on their burgers that looks like a Fruit Roll-Up.
Technically, a tomato is a fruit. So I suppose you could still call it a Fruit Roll-Up. A really, really weird Fruit Roll-Up.
In reality the slice is actually dehydrated ketchup that prevents soaking of the toasted bun and rehydrates as soon as a patty is placed on top. Brilliant.

It’s like they don’t even need to try anymore.
Canadian burger chain The Works has created the Reese’s PBC—a burger that features Reese’s peanut butter cups stuffed inside the beef patty and crumbled on top along with crispy onion strings and smoked bacon.
The PBC goes for $15.98 Canadian (or roughly $12 US).
Followup: crush candy canes on a cheeseburger for Christmas and watch the money roll in.

We’ve seen some really amazing zoetrope cakes from Alexandre Dubosc in the past, and this one is just as mesmerizing to watch. When animated, this chocolate cake titled ‘Melting Pop’ shows a series of short scenes all about popcorn. I watched this gif for at least five minutes before I remembered that I needed to finish writing about it.

If I could build a shrine to coffee, I probably would. I need my daily intake of caffeine pretty badly, and if I don’t get it… well, I can pretty much say goodbye to productivity in general. Needless to say, I would love if my PB&J became a CPB&J.
Steem, the Massachusetts-based company behind the spread, notes that the product features an entire cup of coffee’s worth of caffeine in a single tablespoon. Steem’s co-founder, Chris Pettazzoni, told the Boston Herald that, “It’s a time-saver; your two favorite products in one jar.”
So how do you add caffeine to peanut butter in an all-natural way? Well, green-coffee extract is added to each jar, which gives the peanut butter it’s energetic kick. As far as other ingredients go, the peanut butter features only the necessities: salt, peanuts, peanut oil and agave nectar for a little extra sweetness.

Giant pizza s’mores anyone?
