The Chocolate Popcorn Chicken is a life-sized chunk of caramel chocolate that has been molded into a chicken. Don’t expect to find any golden eggs inside it though, because you’ll find that it’s stuffed with loads and loads of popcorn instead.
What better way to celebrate Easter than with this sweet, corny, and cocky-in-more-ways-than-one treat?

They say you learn something new every day, and today that something is this utterly useless tidbit: McDonald’s has official names for McNugget shapes.
Business Insider recently visited the McDonald’s headquarters in Oak Brook, Ill., and sat in on a quality testing session, where nuggets were being graded by chicken pros from suppliers like Tyson.
The McDonald’s sensory team explained that Chicken McNuggets have four distinct shapes and in order to have a chance to meet the McDonald’s “Gold Standard” for quality, they have to match them as perfectly as possible.
As you can see from the photo above, those shapes are ball, bone, bell, and boot (in Canada, the “bone” is officially a “bow-tie”). Although not mentioned in the list, readers of our site know that there is also the less occasional zombie and founding father.

Lay’s China takes pride in releasing new and bizarre chip flavors every year, including lemon tea, cucumber and hot-and-sour fish soup. However, this time around it’s Pepsi-Chicken – a combination that, according to PepsiCo China’s chief marketing officer, is quite common in the country:
“We thought it would be really cool to have a cola combined with chicken. … It’s a very popular dish in China … Also it would be very cool to involve one of our most-iconic soft drinks.”
The move was welcomed by Pepsi, who has been working to expand its brand presence in China. According to Ben Cavender, associate principal at the China Market Research Group:
“Coke and Pepsi have both stalled out in terms of growth potential in China. It’s important for them to be developing new products and driving into these growth categories. I think Pepsi is probably better-positioned with the packaged food that it has to really make some gains there.”
The bewildering success of Fifty Shades of Grey has led to knockoffs, replicas, and parodies – I expected that would happen. However, I did not guess there would be a parody involving a chicken and Patrick Stewart. Seriously.
Fifty Shades of Chicken by FL Fowler is a “parody in a cookbook.” The book features the dirtiest of chicken recipes. Think about it: spatchcocking, trussing, skinning, stuffing – it practically writes itself.
And the trailer for the book is hilariously over the top. As the icing on the uh, chicken, it sure sounds like Patrick Stewart is narrating the book trailer. Every dirty second of it. Random House hasn’t confirmed it, but the voice seems to match. If they somehow made an audio book version and he recorded it, I’d give them all my money.
Watch the book trailer after the break.

All you need is nuts. Check out the link below to figure out how to make these nutty chicken treats. That’s right, pumpkin spice all the things.
Philadelphia-based “Lil Dan’s” is offering a new vanilla Oreo-crusted chicken sandwich which sees the cookie crumbled on a chicken cutlet, topped with hot sauce and stuffed into a roll with lettuce and tomato.
The taste is described as “Surprisingly subtle! You can taste the sweetness of the Oreos, but they’re not overpowering, and the hot sauce balances it out with a savory tang”.
