Cheese fanatics have no doubt already heard about, and possibly eaten, Burger King’s Mac ‘n’ Cheetos, which is essentially mac n’ cheese covered with Cheetos dust.

Now, HellthyJunkFood is offering their own twist on the concoction, combining hand-shredded sharp cheddar, Velveeta, mascarpone and macaroni with two flavors of Cheetos, which is then dropped in a deep fryer.

The result, dubbed “Deep Fried Mac & Cheddar Mascarpone Velveeta Extra Flaming Hot Cheetos” packs a bigger name and bigger calorie count, but no doubt bigger taste as well.

Watch the creative process in the video below. [click to continue…]

Overwatch cosplay is getting downright clever. This time Vanessa Wedge and Auzzie L. dressed up as D.Va and Soldier: 76, respectively. Soldier: 76’s dad outfit is spot on, and the shoot looks like it was a lot of fun to pull together.

If you’re wondering why D.Va is snacking on Doritos, here’s a bit of context. Per Overwatch‘s backstory, D.Va used to be a pro StarCraft 2 player. Fans sort of took that “pro gamer” idea and ran with it, and they started cranking out artwork and cosplay that features D.Va doing stereotypical gamer things, like, of course, snacking on Doritos and chugging Mountain Dew.

McDonald’s decision to offer all-day breakfast has helped it get out of a lengthy sales slump, so it’s no surprise that they are now expanding the number of items offered.

Previously, the menu was pretty limited. However, the new, improved all-day menu will include a host of items, such as:

Egg McMuffin, Sausage McMuffin with Egg, Sausage McMuffin, Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit, Sausage Biscuit with Egg, Sausage Biscuit, Bacon, Egg & Cheese McGriddles, Sausage, Egg & Cheese McGriddles, Sausage McGriddles, Hotcakes, Hotcakes and Sausage, Sausage Burrito, Fruit & Maple Oatmeal, Fruit ‘N Yogurt Parfait, and Hashbrowns

The new all-day breakfast menu is slated to launch nationwide in September, which will be great news for anyone who loves fast food breakfast but hates mornings.

We’ve seen plenty of burgers with black buns, but the official Studio Ghibli burger finally went all black. [click to continue…]

There’s a new champion in the world of unholy fast food mashups, and you’ll be able to find it at Burger King. In select Southern California locations that is.

Don’t worry though—something tells me that Mac n’ Cheetos is too amazingly preposterous to die in the testing phase. It should launch nationwide soon enough.

With that in mind, you’ll be happy to know that 5-pieces will only set you back $2.49 and each order will include ranch dipping sauce (because mac n’ cheese covered in Cheetos dust just isn’t a long enough trip to flavor country).

As part of a new promotion, KFC has introduced a phone charger built into a takeout box. The limited edition “Watt A Box” is the result of a partnership with the Mumbai-based digital agency Blink Digital and is currently available only in Delhi and Mumbai, India.

If you don’t happen to live in either of those locations, don’t get too upset because the charger is reportedly terrible. A BGR writer tested the Watt A Box and was said to net 17% power over a half hour period before the charger’s battery went kaput. Plugging it in to refresh it only resulted in 7%.

Safe to say that KFC should stick to chicken. But they can’t help themselves apparently.

Despite the recent move to offer all-day breakfast, McDonald’s still isn’t selling items like the Sausage McGriddle and Bacon Egg & Cheese Biscuits in the afternoon. If you’re someone who can’t make it out of bed in time, HellthyJunkFood has a solution.

The channel’s latest video teaches how to make 10 favorites from the menu at home, including the Sausage Biscuit, Sausage McMuffin, Sausage Burrito, Sausage Egg McMuffin, Hash Browns, Egg McMuffin, Big Breakfast with Hot Cakes, McGriddles, Steak Egg and Cheese Bagel and the Bacon Egg and Cheese Bagel. As if that’s not enough, side by side nutrition comparisons are also provided, as is a price comparison.

Indeed, these recipes are actually cheaper and healthier than they are at McDondald’s.

It’s as gross as you would expect.

Granted, you could put any assortment of burgers and fries in there and the results would look the same. I would have preferred and In-N-Out smoothie though.

But only barely.

And yes, the drink is consumed at the end (*shudder*). Watch the video below if you think you can handle it. [click to continue…]

Writer Julien Therrien has made the world a better place. Upon realizing that his cat Jackie bore “a glaring resemblance to the popular emoticon Pusheen The Cat” because of her “grayish color, lack of energy and morbid obesity”, Julien decided he had to recreate Pusheen Facebook stickers using his tubby Tabby. Thank you Julien.

The food-filled ones are especially good. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

About 16-years ago, Burger King made Game Boy Color toys that played cute analog games. Fast forward to 2016 where a Raspberry Pi Zero can be employed to transform the toy into a working Game Boy Color emulator.

Apparently, ChaseLambeth was trying to create one of these modernized Game Boy Color toys when he found an Instagram user who’d already created three functioning models. The Instagramer sold one to Chase for $250, and the Redditor showed off his new purchase online. In addition to the Raspberry Pi Zero, it was also upgraded with a two-inch LCD screen and a RetroPie emulator. And the best part? It plays Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance games!
