The shambling undead wander about on The Walking Dead like a bunch of drunks, which gave Marca Branca an idea. He replaced the zombies in the opening with footage of actual drunk humans wandering around and it’s a little frightening how well it works. Remember this the next time you’re tempted to have one drink too many.

mug

This 11 ounce mug will hold your favorite beverage and let you know when it’s time to refuel. When it’s full of something warm it reads “Ready Player One Start!” but when it’s cold or empty changes to “Game Over Refill? >Yes No” so you know when it’s time to reach into your pocket for quarters.

cheetos bagels

Kids have the craziest ideas when it comes to food. The Buffalo News reports that a ten-year-old girl was hanging around the BreadHive bakery and eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, and she suggested putting the Cheetos on top of bagels. BreadHive’s Allison Ewing figured it was worth trying so they crushed a bag of the Cheetos, dipped bagels in them, and voila! Flamin’ Hot Cheetos bagels. I’d definitely try one.

I hope someone runs with the idea of junk food on bagels because I think Doritos bagels could be delicious.

In the latest episode of the Reactions series by The American Chemical Society they explain why pizza tastes so darn good. It all comes down to a series of chemical reactions:

Whether it’s a plain cheese, a deep-dish stacked with meats or a thin-crust veggie delight, there’s just something about pizza that makes it delicious. There’s a lot of chemistry that goes into everything from dough to sauce to toppings to, of course, cheese. There’s also a very specific chemical reaction at work on every single slice, no matter what toppings you choose.

It’s called the Maillard Reaction, and it’s what causes the browning of the dough and toppings, as well as the release of some delicious compounds.

And here we thought it was all about high-quality ingredients.

cupcakecostumeparty

While I’d personally rather eat cupcakes than wear them, this cupcake costume party t-shirt is pretty cute. It features 12 different costumed cupcakes including a zom-bite, Cakenstein, and my personal favorite Mmm-mmy.

Of course, if someone wore this and then made the cupcakes on the shirt, I’d like that best.

It’s available in sizes S through 3X and it’s in stock now.

pumpkin truck

Fall is when we pumpkin all the things, including this poor truck which had a 1200-pound pumpkin dropped on its roof. It all happened at the Conneaut Lake Park Pumpkin Festival in Pennsylvania. Why? Because this is America and we love the smashy smashy.

Wait! Don’t eat these apples! They’re poison… oh, wait. No, they’re not poisonous. They’re just made to look terribly deadly. Actually, it’s homemade caramel apple with some black gel food coloring added in. They look great and will make a fun treat for any Halloween party.

If you’d like to make these for yourself, head on over to Simply Delicious for the recipe.

1cda_delicious_dead_zombie_mold

Halloween is just over two weeks away, and if you’re having a party you should start thinking about snacks. This new chocolate mold from ThinkGeek would make a great addition because it has everything you need to make a graveyard scene – even zombies! You can use it for chocolate and also for ice and Jell-O. Anything you can squish into a mold is fair game.

Use the finished zombie and tombstone pieces as cake or cupcake toppers or simply arrange them on top of chocolate cake crumbs in a bowl.
