Because you can’t go five minutes without using your phone, Kentucky Fried Chicken chains in Germany came up with a wacky techno-marketing gimmick that involved lining serving trays with disposable Bluetooth keyboards. Yep.
The deal here was that you could sync the keyboard (pictured above) with your phone, and then type away while you’re snacking on greasy chicken. Presumably, this would help to keep your screen clean (though wouldn’t you still have to touch your phone to wake it up or switch apps?).
It seems stupid, but stupidity sells. Apparently, the week-long campaign was so successful that all of the customers who received one felt compelled to take the keyboard home.

Bree Miller of Bree’s Cakes decided to celebrate Easter by creating a confectionary Frankenstein consisting of three layers cornbread cake pasted together with mac and cheese and candied yams, iced with mashed potatoes, drizzled with gravy and topped with fried chicken.
Apparently this isn’t the first time Bree has dabbled in experimental comfort food cakes. She has also fashioned a double layer cornbread cake with black bean filling and mashed potato frosting with guacamole, caramelized onions, avocado slices and lime, as well as a collard green and cornbread cake topped with spicy chicken wings.

KFC may have gone a step too far with its latest creation. The Double Down Dog features a hot dog drizzled with cheese that is then sandwiched in a fried chicken bun. This follow-up to the Double Down Sandwich is being sold in super limited quantities. Participating stores appear to be limited to the Philippines at the moment, and each restaurant will be allowed to sell only 50 each day through January 27th.

At this point, KFC has no plans to bring the hot dog to the U.S.

Chicken pot pie is a wonderful comfort food, but put it in a cone and it becomes adorable. It’s actually fairly easy to make, requiring just store bought pie crust and a cone mold. You just wrap the crust around the mold and bake it at 400 degrees for ten minutes. Next you take it out, add the filling, and cook it another ten minutes right side up and you’re ready to eat.

We thought the last Bloody Mary we posted was the pinnacle of drink engineering, but Vancouver bar Score on Davie decided to toss their hat in the ring with the insane version pictured here.
This Bloody Mary is topped with: a pulled pork mac and cheese hot dog, chicken wings, a slider, a full sized burger, a whole roasted chicken, veggies and even a brownie for dessert complete with whipped cream!
Oh, and a pickle. Can’t forget the pickle.
I think they need to put some Rolaids in there somewhere.

Say you want to show Lifehacker just how cool and realistic looking your new 3D printer’s color layering process looks…What would you scan and print?
Well, if your a designer at iJet in Yokohama, Japan, you pick up a nearby KFC drumstick. Techs scanned the poultry using a high-resolution laser scanner and then printed out a 3D version of the chicken leg using iJets color-printing technology, which prints color layer by layer in an effort to enhance realism and accuracy.
While this version may look a little deformed shape and color-wise, keep in mind, they were working with KFC.

It’s almost Super Bowl Sunday and that means parties with the tastiest, most delicious, incredibly bad for you treats. A perfect example is Doritostix which consist of homemade cheese sticks filled with pepper jack cheese and coated in Doritos. Instructables user Pat Sheldon explains her creation:
When combined together in your mouth, you basically get the sensation of crispy Doritos and creamy cheese with a kick. I guarantee it will be the first item grabbed at your Superbowl party, and will be gone in 10 min or less depending on how many hungry fans are there.
You can read the detailed instructions here and then whip up a batch for your friends. Just be sure to make enough for everyone.
If you like a little wine with your chicken, or a little chicken with your wine, this handy wine stopper lets you kill two birds with one stone and show your friends you’re a gourmet with the poulet.
I can’t even believe I wrote the above sentence.
Bottom line, it’s funny, it’s functional and it’s less than ten bucks.
