Weird Food

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…

A place in Korea, apparently called “The Place”, is taking pizza eating to an extreme new level with this Korean Bomb Pizza.

The offering consists of a (weird looking) pizza concealed inside a dough bubble that is doused with oil and set ablaze. Afterward, the bubble is removed with scissors and the pizza is cut into slices.

If you’re having trouble getting a picture in your mind, you’re in luck, because there’s a video of the process below.

You probably already have good idea about what happens when you pour molten copper all over a 5-pound gummy bear. But, darn it, it’s still fun to watch the magic happen!

Watch a yummy gummy transformed into a gooey monstrosity in the video below.

aaaahhhhhh

Kellogg’s has teamed up with, y’know, some soda people, to bring the world two new flavors of Pop Tarts – Crush Orange and A&W Root Beer. 

Pop-Tarts Frosted A&W Root Beer are bubbling with root beer-flavored filling, wrapped inside a golden crust, and are topped with sweet white frosting and brown, red and orange crunchlets. Pop-Tarts Frosted Crush Orange citrus-flavored filling will tingle your taste buds with its sweet white frosting and orange string icing.

This prompts us to ask the question: Is this it? Are we done? Is the apocalypse nigh? Are two of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse really into Pop-Tarts? And if so, which ones? I suspect Famine is a fan. Maybe Death? It’s probably Death.

“We’re always trying to surprise our fans with flavors they’ll love,” said Angela Gusse, director of marketing for Pop-Tarts, presumably while donning a robe made from a material that seemed blacker than black, as though light did not hit the surface whatsoever, and sacrificing a confused and malnourished goat to her eldritch toaster gods.

The new flavors will be available in stores across the US starting in May.

raindrop cake

Darren Wong has brought the Raindrop Cake (which we’ve seen before in Japan) to Brooklyn, where it is getting a lot of attention.

The unique creation is made from “a precise mixture of agar (algae gelatin) and spring water”, resulting in a product that has the texture, look and taste of a giant raindrop. Although the texture is its main draw, a “very sweet nutty flavor” is achieved by serving it with koromitsu syrup (a black sugar cane) and a roasted soy flour.

The cake, which is described as not quite liquid and not quite Jell-O, debuted at Brooklyn’s Smorgasburg, although it will also be available at various additional locations:

Saturdays in Williamsburg’s Kent State Park, and starting May 1, Sundays in Prospect Park’s Breeze Hill. Hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. or until the vendors sell out. The Raindrop Cake is also available at Magick City, 37 Box Street in Greenpoint.

Check out a video on the creative process below, where you’ll likely find that it initially looks like a breast implant.

An ice cream shop in Kanazawa, Japan is presenting ice cream in a whole new way by decking it out with gold foil. Apparently, it’s not some imitation gold, but the real deal. It’s also said to be completely edible, so at some point you’ll be able to follow Will Ferrell in saying “I crapped gold”.

Check out the video below showing how a gold cone is created.

Among the latest trends in the food world are sushi burgers, which isn’t surprising when you look at the marvelous concoction pictured above. Instagram can’t resist something like that.

The “burgers” use sushi rice as a stand in for a conventional bun with raw fish, fried soft-shell crab, fried chicken or a beef patty in-between. Toppings consist of avocado, spicy mayonnaise, pickled ginger and red cabbage.

Although a sushi burger is on the menu of Japanese fast food chain MOS Burger, several homemade variations have surfaced on the Internet, including the additional examples pictured below.

The Auntie Anne’s soft pretzel chain is making a name for itself in Japan by offering a constant rotation of seasonal flavors such as strawberry, maple, milk cream and their most recent addition, matcha green tea.

Their most popular item is said to be a 420 yen (US$3.75) Matcha Cheesecake pretzel roll, which consists of Auntie Anne’s pretzel dough with layers of matcha cream and cream cheese cake topped with crushed almonds.

Yeah, I can see why that would be popular.

Beverages are also on the menu, including a 480 yen Frozen Driink Uji Matcha with whipped cream sprinkled with green tea powder, and a 380 yen Uji Matcha Latte.

While the Uji Matcha Latte is reportedly a regular product, the Matcha Cheesecake Roll and Frozen Driink Uji Matcha are limited time offerings that will reportedly stick around only until May 31.

Quinoa sourced from the Altiplano plateau in the Andean mountains and a proprietary production process resulting from two-years of research have all come together to get you bombed in the form of Quinoa Vodka.

The smugness level of this beverage is 11 on a scale of 1-10.

This Fair Trade vodka is a product of a joint effort between French distillers and Andean farmers and offers award-winning taste as well as an instant topic of conversation about the proper pronunciation of “quinoa”.

The 10-inch sugar on sugar pie is available through March and will set you back £7.50 (approx $11 US) – and who knows how many thousands of calories.
