Weird Food

If the picture above makes you angry, you are not alone. Many, many people have shared strong opinions on the photo, which was shared by Twitter user @hyrulecitizen. Much of the outrage was tongue-in-cheek, but there was plenty of the real, irrational anger that the internet is famous for—which is why hyrulecitizen to set her account to private.

Brach’s has responded to the growing popularity of brunch by marrying it with the fall favorite known as candy corn. Given the current state of crazy food trends, nobody should be surprised by this.

Their new “Fall Brunch Favorites” offering includes French Toast and Maple Syrup, Waffles and Strawberry and Chocolate Chip and Pancakes flavors, and Popsugar notes that the smell is “very reminiscent of a Yankee Maple Pancake candle”. That isn’t surprising either.

It is currently available exclusively at Target for $2.50 and, as you probably guessed, will only be around for a limited time.

Here Comes The Mufgel

Say hello to the Cronut’s slightly demented cousin: the “Mufgel”. Scot Rossillo of Brooklyn’s The Bagel Store (the same joint behind the famous rainbow bagel) semi-invented the muffin/bagel monstrosity this past July.

Rossillo noted to Gothamist that inspiration came in the form of a radio commercial that actually coined the name “Mufgel” while poking fun at crazy food trends in NYC. Yes, we’re living in a world where jokes based on food crazes become new food crazes. Nothing is sacred.

Rossillo also noted to Gothamist that he makes 42 Mufgels each day, and he usually sells out by closing time. Well, the Mufgel looks delicious, but is it just me or does the name sound like a terrible hair-care product? Check out more pics and the inspirational radio commercial below. [click to continue…]

The Naughty Churro of Orange County, California is catering to the emoji crowd with a new Poop Churro that’s shaped like the popular smiling turd.

The dessert, appropriately dubbed “The Number Two” is said to consist of a chocolate churro on a bed of cookies & cream ice cream topped with crushed Oreos and Nutella. It officially “dropped” at 626 Night Market on August 5th. Check out the promo video below. [click to continue…]

Nabisco is continuing to push the Oreo flavor boundaries with a new version that features Swedish Fish-flavored filling. I have to admit, I did not see this one coming.

Without an official announcement, the limited edition release came as a surprise when it hit Kroger stores this week, and prompted a number of reviews that described the flavor and consistency as being similar to strawberry play dough and walking the fine line between candy and medicine.

A pack of 20 will set you back $2.99 and an untold amount in fuel, as they are apparently only available at Kroger stores. Whether or not they will see an expanded release remains to be seen. Check out a couple video reviews below. [click to continue…]

As a special gift for aptly-named YouTuber “Dr. Pimple Popper”, California-based bakery Blessed by Baking created these vile pimple cupcakes with edible pus-filled cores.

To up to gross factor, the desserts emit bright yellow lemon curd or custard when squeezed, which are bound to make these things extremely difficult to eat, especially if you choose to watch some of Dr. Pimple Popper’s videos beforehand.

Vegan café Matcha Mylkbar in Melbourne, Australia is offering a blue latte which has been appropriately dubbed the “Smurf Latte”.

The drink contains lemon, ginger agave and coconut milk, and gets its hue from a teaspoon of something called E3 live blue algae powder – whatever that is.

The taste has been described as quite sweet and “soury”, although it’s difficult to pin down because everyone seems to describe it differently.

Even though the Smurf Latte is not officially on the cafe’s menu, the social media attention has resulted in loads of orders. That’s not surprising since it’s a proven fact that changing the color of food is a surefire way to draw attention.

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. [click to continue…]
