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.

Luke Wholey’s Wild Alaskan Grille in Pittsburgh, PA has raised the bar for ostentatious beverages by offering this happy hour Bloody Mary that’s garnished with shrimp cocktail and a fried soft-shell crab.

The drink also includes two olive eyeballs that will give you a bizarre and haunting blank stare prior to being consumed.

As you probably know, Japan is the home to a number of bizarre yet intriguing Kit Kat concoctions. Now a coffeehouse called “Pronto” has endeavored to take things to the next level by offering Kit Kat croissants.

The two offerings currently available include milk chocolate and matcha green tea-flavored Kit Kats in the center of a baked croissant. The flavors have been described as “a great contrast to the bitterness of a cup of coffee”. It can also be heated to get it all melty up in there.

Both examples are priced at 170 yen (US$1.40) and are reportedly available at all Pronto location from 7 am to 5:30 pm. However, they will only be around for a limited time.

These Takeaway Marshmallow Pizzas looks like typical margherita, pepperoni, Hawaiian or vegetarian pizzas, but are in reality vanilla flavored marshmallows.

Available in 8″ or 12″ sizes, the products also arrive in a pizza box to help enhance the illusion and confuse your taste buds. Customers can even add an optional, personalized message on the inside of the lid.

Giant pizza s’mores anyone?

If the Colonel was still kicking, and if it was his birthday, I’m pretty sure he’d commission Aussie Branka Njegich to make one of these KFC cakes for the celebration. Depicted above in all its sugary glory, this KFC cake doesn’t actually feature any chicken, corn or potatoes.

“It’s all cake,” said Branka to The Daily Mail. “The only things that aren’t edible is the Pepsi can obviously and the little boxes.”

Apparently, the gravy’s made from caramel, the corn’s made from jelly beans and Starbursts and the mashed potatoes are actually made from vanilla buttercream. Gosh, I can’t decide if I want fried chicken, cake or fried chicken cake for dinner now.

Sushi for dessert? What if it’s shaped like a cake? With my current cooking skill set, I think layering sushi ingredients would be easier than rolling them up.

Using a bowl as a guide, take two sheets of nori paper and cut them into circles. Add the first layer of rice, then avocado, and last the sushi.  Finally stack both layers on top of each other to complete the cake. Then grab some spicy sauce and chopsticks and call your friend over. Or keep it for yourself, I won’t judge.

We loved Catloaf and Pugloaf, but UK-based Lou Lou P’s Delights is back with a magically delicious unicorn burger that tops them all.

Last week it was fried chicken pizza, but at least that integrated pizza flavor into fried chicken. Chizza is just a slab of fried chicken with sauce and cheese on top.

We get it KFC, you want to replace bread with fried chicken. How stupid and fat do you think we are?

Don’t answer that.

The KFChizza first appeared on the Twitter account of KFC Philippines and is expected to get a test run in Asia before expanding to other markets.

To honor the character known as Kirimi-chan, whose head is a giant piece of salmon, Japanese companies Pucco and Sanrio teamed up to create salted-salmon chewy candy. The limited edition offering features a gray color to mimic salmon skin and the addition of salmon flakes to its center. But rather than acting as a ipecac, the candy has been described as having an orange flavor and only “hints of fish”, while others described it as sweet and mild.

Whatever the case, most purchases will most likely be the result of curiosity rather than any sort of appetizing appeal.
