These incredible donut creations come from Gourdough’s Donuts in Texas which is known for all sorts of crazy and delicious concoctions. Here we have the Boss Hog with potato salad, pulled pork and BBQ sauce and the Mother Clucker with fried chicken and honey butter. If you’re looking for sweet, then try the Funky Monkey which is like a bananas foster donut. Yum!

Frito-Lay is debuting a new chocolate covered potato chip next week as an exclusive at Target stores. You can pick up a bag of this salty, sweet treat for $3.49 for a 5 ounce bag only through the holidays. There’s a chance they could be come a year-round product if they sell well enough, but for now, you’ll have to grab them before they’re gone!

Scientists at the Cologne Institute have found an excellent reason for you to pick up that giant tub of popcorn next time you’re at the movies. They’ve discovered that munching on food helps you resist the affects of advertising. According to researcher Sascha Topolinski:
“The mundane activity of eating popcorn made participants immune to the pervasive effects of advertising… This finding suggests that selling candy in cinemas actually undermines advertising effects, which contradicts present marketing strategies. In the future, when promoting a novel brand, advertising clients might consider trying to prevent candy being sold before the main movie.”
This means that not only can you munch on that popcorn, but all those overpriced treats are fair game. It also means advertisers aren’t technically getting the bang for the buck that they think they’re getting—but that’s their problem. I’m heading back to the concession stand for some Milk Duds.

We do get some great Doritos flavors here in the states, but we don’t get even close to the number of unique flavors that they get in Japan. The latest version we can’t have is Avocado Cheese. It’s a special limited edition that will only be around until February 28th.
