kfc game of thrones

The season four premiere of Game of Thrones was packed with action but also with some funny moments. In one particular scene, the Hound goes on and on about chickens. He’s clearly hungry, and he’s got his eyes on the prize.

Because the internet is what it is, jokes about the Hound sponsoring KFC started hitting social media. Jimmy Kimmel and his team even went so far as to create a parody showing the Hound shilling for Colonel Sanders. It even caught author George R.R. Martin’s eye.

Watch the spoof after the break.

pringles iron throne

You know what they say about Pringles, “once you pop, you can’t stop.” In this case, if you don’t stop, you can eventually build an Iron Throne! How’s that for incentive? I always prefer eating to win a throne instead of fighting a war.

Pringles shared the image above on Twitter for the season four premiere of Game of Thrones and encouraged followers to say no being hungry. Check out the tweet after the break…

game of thrones drinking game

I know drinking games are fun and I think we need one for Game Of Thrones because, well, GoT makes you need a drink more often than not.

But I’m pretty sure the rules of this drinking game by The Savory would result in alcohol poisoning.

Aw, what the heck. Valar Morghulis.

Head after the break to see the rules.

UnofficialGoTcookbook

On Sunday, the highly anticipated premiere of Game of Thrones season four will air on HBO. As fans look forward to the return of the show’s classic action and drama, they also have another aspect to look forward to: the food.

It’s hard not to notice the elaborate feasts and interesting dishes being enjoyed by the characters in the series. It adds something to the atmosphere of the show that has been important to the story’s setting well before Game of Thrones made the move to TV.

“Food plays a recurring role in the books of A Song of Ice and Fire. Characters are constantly chatting and plotting over a meal. The really big feasts tend to involve major confrontations,” Alan Kistler, author of The Unofficial Game of Thrones Cookbook, told That’s Nerdalicious.

Kistler’s cookbook features over 150 recipes inspired by George R. R. Martin’s fantasy series. Each of the recipes includes a description of the scene it is from and a discussion of the setting, characters, or themes. The cookbook also specifies in which book and chapter the food can be found which is fun for any literary geek who wants to enjoy dishes by their corresponding novel. The good thing is all this information avoids spoilers, so you can try anything without worrying about ruining the story if you’re not caught up yet.

Featuring everything from appetizers to desserts, the cookbook has just what you need if you’re planning to throw a delicious Game of Thrones party for the premiere. After the break, find five fantastic recipes you can try along with insight and tips from Kistler!

Beer

The latest offering in the Ommegang Brewery line of Game of Thrones beers is Fire and Blood. This one is said to be an homage to Daenerys Targaryen’s three dragons; Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion. They’ve even made three different labels with one representing each.

Fire & Blood is a 6.8% ABV Red ale, brewed with pilsner, Cara-60, Midnight Wheat, flaked rye and spelt. Assertive hopping includes CTZ, Styrian Golding and German Tettnang hops. Spiced with de-seeded Ancho chilies. Fire & Blood has a deep, dark red hue with a persistent, creamy, off-white head. Aromas of ripe fruit, raisins, malt & slight spice, followed by a slightly floral and spicy hop character. A fruity, sweetish malt taste gives way to faint drying provided by the hops & rye.

This special limited edition brew will be available beginning on March 31st, just in time to enjoy before the show’s return on April 6th.

This wedding cake isn’t actually for a wedding, but to celebrate the release of Game of Thrones season three on DVD and Blu-ray in Great Britain. It took Choccywoccydoodah over 20 hours to create the raisin, rum, and chocolate filled cake. Actress Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on the show, got the privilege of cutting the first slice with a giant sword.

GoT cake 1

In the Game of Thrones, having a stunning cake at the reception is fantastic—if you can survive long enough to eat it. Baker Candytuft Cakes came up with this incredibly classy and creative design for a wedding. The dessert pulls elements from across the realm of Westeros together into an edible masterpiece.

From top to bottom, the inspirations for the cake’s layers are: the scales on the dragon eggs (circled by a branch from a weirwood tree), a parchment with Dothraki writing that says “sun and stars moon of my life,” a pattern on one of Cersei Lannister’s dresses, Brienne of Tarth’s armor, and one of Tyrion Lannister’s leather tabards. I think this cake deserves the Iron Throne.
