Weird Food

If you haven’t noticed, ramen is having a moment. Yesterday it was ramen beer, and today it’s Top Ramen Chicken-flavored Pringles. [click to continue…]

A Philadelphia ice cream shop called Little Baby’s Ice Cream dared to make a pizza-flavored ice cream. Then people dared to put that pizza ice cream on actual pizza from Pizza Brain. This might be too much for me. [click to continue…]

Which is worse/better? Peeps on a pizza or Cadbury Creme Eggs on a pizza? This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the latter option, but London pizzeria Crust Bros and the online delivery service Deliveroo are taking the concept to another level. [click to continue…]

Pineapple pizza is one thing, but Peeps on pizza? I’m firmly in the “madness” category on this one. [click to continue…]

NYC-based eatery Pop Pasta has combined the popular Neapolitan spaghetti pie with an American donut to create a new frankenfood aptly referred to as the spaghetti donut. [click to continue…]

Nothing signals the return of spring like the annual swarm of cherry blossom/sakura-related offerings that spread across Japan. This year foodies will be able to partake in a new thin-crust pizza topped with cherry blossom cotton candy and honey-ginger sauce. [click to continue…]

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…]
