Starting on Dec. 1st, McDonald’s chains in Niigata Prefecture will be offering a 48-piece bucket of McNuggets for 1,800 yen ($15). If you’re counting, that’s eight more than the 40 piece McNugget bucket that’s available in the US.

The deal is part of a promotional tie-in for a idol pop group called NGT48, which is an off-shoot of the super popular idol group, AKB48.

NGT48 sounds a lot like “Nugget 48” after all.

When you purchase a 48-nugget set, you’ll receive a promotional container that’s decorated with images of NGT48 members. Chains in the area will also offer paper tray covers and limited-edition, collectible commemorative cards with each order.

The promotional sale will continue until those Niigata chains run out of the special packages.

Domino’s is making pizza ordering even simpler by launching one-click ordering in the UK. Basically, it’s an official version of that Amazon Dash button pizza hack we featured back in September.

“The Easy Order” is available as both a physical button (paired with an app over Bluetooth) and a virtual button. Customers can simply save their data on the Domino’s website and click the button like its a Life Alert for your appetite.

The physical buttons will debut in the UK in December by way of a “socially led” competition, followed by a second release in February. Meanwhile, the digital Easy Order button sits inside the official Domino’s app and is available for use immediately.

There’s no word on if or when the button might be available in the states.

For their latest stunt, the Slow Mo Guys wasted 1,000 tubes of Go-Gurt by crushing it with a giant weight and filming the carnage between 1000 and 2500fps.

Strangely enough, the experiment was actually sponsored by Go-Gurt, proving that any exposure is good exposure, even if your product is being destroyed rather than consumed.

Tasty food pops up quite a bit in the Game of Thrones narrative. So, it’s fitting that Michelle Wibowo, a sugar artist and cake designer would use her talents to make a gingerbread version of King’s Landing (from the HBO title sequence) for the Taste of London 2015 festival.

coca cola mascot

Who knew that the Coca-Cola Polar Bear was such a joker? A YouTuber named EXI snagged the video posted below of Coca-Cola’s mascot at Atlanta, Georgia’s World of Coca-Cola museum playfully teasing some of the visitors.

I’m pretty confident that Mr. Polar Bear really likes his job. Plus, that suit is just awesome.

I’ll admit, I’m not always comfortable with PETA’s tactics, but this new ad by Bryan Fuller (a vegetarian) comes just in time for Thanksgiving—and it’s just too tasty to pass up.

Besides, it features Gillian Anderson as Bedelia DuMaurier once again. We’ll take whatever Hannibal we can get.

When Sophie asked her mom Jamie for a Star Wars-themed birthday party, Jamie decided to take the cake to the next level. It’s what great geeky parents do. She notes:

My daughter wanted a Star Wars party, so I bought this Chewbacca doll hoping that I could find a bakery that would turn him into a barbie cake. Because he was a full size doll and not a kit, I was turned down several times.

That’s when Jamie’s friend Megan swooped in to save the day:

My amazing friend, Megan, came to the rescue and offered to make Chewy a beautiful cake dress. She nailed it!
