Now I love cappuccinos just as much as the next caffeine-addicted Internet denizen, but I’m not sold on the idea of cappuccino-flavored potato chips. But some of the other flavors in this year’s Do Us A Flavor competition from Frito-Lay are a bit out there too: cheddar bacon mac & cheese, mango salsa and, of course, wasabi ginger. The four flavors will hit supermarket shelves later this month, and the public can vote on their favorite flavor through Oct. 18. The inventor of the most popular flavor will win a $1 million reward.

Which version are you most excited to try?

Ecto

Clearly, there is a hardcore Ghostbusters fanbase that is willing to go to great lengths to own everything possible that has been made in conjunction with the films. This 46-ounce can of Hi-C Ecto Cooler was produced sometime around 1986 and is now up for auction on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $2433. From the product page:

One of the greatest treasures you may possibly ever find on ebay!
An unopened can of the beloved Ecto Cooler 46 FL OZ.

For the Ultimate fan or maybe just someone who really wants to have a 20+ year flashback.

I am not quite sure of the date it was produced but the copyright on the label is 1986 . Top of can reads K3160 CT293 5c DEPOSIT ME

There are a few light tears on label and some light staining as seen. Also the can is slightly bent as seen.

Feel free to ask any questions and make any offer.

Forget not being afraid of no ghosts, this stuff has the potential to poison you and turn you into one!

ramen-chicken-nuggets-1

Why is this the first time I’ve heard of Ramen Chicken Nuggets? I mean, I was practically raised on chicken nuggets and Ramen was a standard snack/meal for me back in school. Why didn’t anyone ever think to combine these two items before?

It’s probably packed with ten year’s worth of sodium in a single bite, but who cares? Healthy eating is overrated anyway. Bring on the Ramen Nuggets! If you’d like to make this dish at home, head on over to Oh, Bite It! to check out their recipe.

Fan of the macabre and all things gruesome, Annabel de Vetten of Conjurer’s Kitchen opted to make the above “dissected” cake after being asked repeatedly by her fans and customers as to what’s inside of all her very delicious cakes. Now, a run-of-the-mill baker might just respond by saying, “Well, there’s cake inside of my cakes!” But Annabel is not your average baker. Here’s what she had to say:

“Of course only the pretty cakes look like this on the inside, all the creepy and unusual cakes are yummy sponge cakes in many different flavours! ;-)

OK, so I’m kidding. Everything is tasty.”

Yeah, this lady is A-OK in my book.

Happy Fourth of July! If you’re throwing an Independence Day shindig today, you might want to try out this fun recipe from Buzzfeed. You actually take a whole watermelon, scoop out the inside, and fill it up with Jell-O and vodka.

When you dish out the watermelon, make sure to pass out smaller-sized portions–the recipe calls for roughly four cups of vodka, so this watermelon definitely packs a punch.

If you’d like to check out the whole recipe, head on over to Buzzfeed.

Instant Ramen Noodles are a tasty treat and so is pudding, but combining the two? That’s apparently all the rage in Taiwan right now and the guys over at RocketNews24 decided to give it a try.

First you make instant Ramen noodles just like normal, then you add in the custard and mix it all up. They say that the resulting concoction is a “pleasant experience” with “a nice blend of salty and sweet and the hot noodles and cool pudding balanced out to a comfortably warm temperature.”

I’ll have to take their word for it.

chocolate-skulls-4

Believe it or not, this skull is actually a chocolate replica. Etsy seller BlackChocolateCo crafts anatomically correct replica skulls that weigh roughly three pounds and are made from the chocolate of your choice. Alas, Poor Yorick will likely melt in your hand so best keep him in the fridge.

Oreo is rolling out another limited edition flavor that could make it a great summer snack. Limeade Oreos are now a real thing, and you might be able to find some at your local Walmart. As for the taste, well, your guess is as good as mine. Consumerist thinks that the cookie should taste somewhat like the Lemon Oreo (i.e. a blend of buttery cookie and citrus filling). Sounds good to me!
