Pancakes on a stick may not be new, but a machine that will let you make these tasty treats is big news! All you do is pour in some batter, put in a stick, and then wait about ten minutes and you’ve got yourself a pancake. I know, that’s an awfully long time to wait for a single pancake, but it’s on a stick so that makes it totally worth the wait.

Adding whiskey to your maple syrup might not sound like the most productive way to start your day, but it sure does sound delicious. We’re not too sure how much Bourbon is in these whiskey-infused Jim Bean Pancake Syrup bottles, but each bottle carries 16-ounces of sugary goodness, so at least there’s plenty to work with. You can buy a pack of six, and you can add the syrup to just about anything: pancakes, crepes, french toast–heck, you can even add it to your coffee. Enjoy!

It can be hard to find the time to prepare breakfast in the morning. Sometimes even popping a frozen waffle in the toaster is more work than I want to do. These new breakfast lollipops from ThinkGeek could save the day though.
The set has bacon, donut, and waffle lollipops, and their flavors pretty much match their titles. According to ThinkGeek, “The bacon tastes like bacon; the donut tastes like coconut (with strawberry frosting); and the waffle tastes like delicious maple syrup.” All you have to do is unwrap the suckers and destroy a tasty, if nutritionally poor, breakfast.

In this video from Buzzfeed, we can explore what people from different countries across the world eat for breakfast. For instance, did you know that in Japan, they like to eat pickled veggies? Or that in Morocco they eat crepes with jam and olive oil? Over in Germany and the UK they eat a ton of eggs and sausages. Gosh, I’m getting hungry.

McDonald’s is the official king of the fast-food breakfast realm, and it looks like they’re hoping to capitalize on that by extending breakfast hours. Their reason for doing so is not exactly surprising. It seems that the company’s target demographic, millennials, aren’t too big on getting up early. Jeff Stratton, head of McDonald’s USA, told the Associated Press, “We know, as an example, that breakfast on the weekend cut off at 10:30 doesn’t go very well.”
The AP notes that while there are some logistical challenges with offering both lunch and breakfast options at a similar time, the chain is working hard to keep up-to-date with the ever-changing eating habits of its customers.
“Well, we’re just beginning. … We’re just taking a look at it,” says Stratton. In order for the extended hours to be a sure thing, the company needs their more than 14,000 franchisees in the U.S. to hop on board.
It appears that breakfast items are going to be added to Taco Bell menus around the country, starting March 27.
Taco Bell is looking to make a dent in McDonald’s share of the fast-food breakfast market with a variety of portable items that are designed with the Millennial in mind: According to USA Today, items like the A.M. Crunchwrap (scrambled eggs, hash browns, cheese and bacon or sausage in a warm tortilla) and the Breakfast Waffle Taco (A warm waffle wrapped around sausage or bacon, scrambled eggs, cheese and syrup) can be eaten with one hand, thus freeing up the other hand for texting, tweeting or other important social media related tasks that can’t wait until after breakfast.
Breakfast will be served at 7 am or earlier, depending upon the local market.
It’s no secret Bruce Lee has mad skills. He can navigate a fight like nobody’s business. But did you know he can also prepare your breakfast? He has a mean banana chop!
Tumblr user VSE OK posed his Bruce Lee action figure in a series of fruit punching and chopping positions and documented them in photographs. I hope he ate breakfast before starting this project because it had to take a lot of time to get the pictures just right.
Check out the rest of the series after the break.

Root beer. On the few occasions that I indulge in soda, root beer is often my go-to selection. I wouldn’t necessarily think of putting root beer into pancake batter, but it sounds like a tasty pairing. Fantastic Sharing posted about the treat, and though it requires you to make pancake batter by hand instead of using a box mix, it’s not complicated and would be a perfect Saturday breakfast-dessert.
