If you’re settling down and planning to watch a Sailor Moon marathon, then only one snack will do: Sailor Moon tortilla chips. The magical snacks are part of a partnership with Japanese snack food company Koikeya, and the Sailor Moon gang will begin appearing on bags of chips as of November 21. The avocado cream cheese, bagna cauda, and balsamico grilled pork flavored chips will feature Sailors Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Venus as well as Tuxedo Mask.

darth-vader-helmet-cookie-jar-xl

Do you remember that scene in The Empire Strikes back when the audience sees the back of Vader’s head when his helmet is being removed? Well, now you can recreate that scene with this awesome Darth Vader Helmet Cookie Jar. But instead of seeing a scarred, wrinkled old man noggin’ when you lift up the helmet, you’ll get to see some delicious cookies! Yeah, cookies are definitely a lot more pleasant.

Officially licensed by Lucasfilm, this highly detailed jar is perfect for holding a vast assortment of snacks for when you finally decide to give into the Dark Side in the middle of the night.

dunk

We all learn how to dunk our cookies into a nice, tall glass of milk pretty early in our lives, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. Sometimes the cookie slips from your grip. Sometimes you over-dunk and soggy bits go floating off into your milk. The Dunkin’ Buddy makes the whole process easier by magnetically attaching a dunking tray to any glass. It safely holds your cookie and then you can dunk it into the milk without fear of losing it or ending up with a bunch of soggy cookie remains in your glass. It’s not quite ready for sale, but you can keep an eye on their site and be among the first to dunk with ease.

vending machine costume 1

Some kids want to be Batman or Disney characters for Halloween. Not Redditor MoobytheGoldenCalf’s son. He asked to be a vending machine. Since past years’ Halloween costumes have included a traffic cone and a mailbox, it’s clear the kid has a thing for inanimate objects. MoobytheGoldenCalf constructed the costume and stocked it with real snacks. He explains:

The front has a plastic/plexiglass sheet so that kids don’t run up to him and steal the chips. The slot on the right is the candy deposit slot, so the candy goes down a chute into the “push” bin section at the bottom. The inside of it has a piece of mirror film on the back of the chip area, so that he can see out, but people can’t see him. And the thing lights up too, which is probably a good idea as it’s just a black box from the back.

More pics of the creative costume after the break.

1eef_ghost_pepper_cheddar_popcorn

If you fear spicy foods, then this bag of Ghost Pepper Cheddar Popcorn is most definitely not for you. Just FYI, the Ghost Pepper (Bhut Jolokia) is one of the hottest peppers in the world. It’s overall heat rating is around 850,000-1,400,000 SHU, and just for some proper context, a jalapeño pepper has a heat rating of round 3500 SHU. So yeah, this cheesy-but-spicy popcorn is only for folks with tastebuds that can handle extreme, borderline-insane spiciness.

food and comics paintings 1

If you take a quick glance at the image above and didn’t read the title of this post closely, you probably wouldn’t guess it’s an oil painting. This incredible photorealistic art is the work of Doug Bloodworth, and it hurts my head to think about how much time he spends creating images like this. Apparently, he works with grids and can spend more than two months on each painting.

One of Bloodworth’s series is focused on comics and snacks. He recreates the covers of the comics in perfect detail, and he makes the food look so real that it makes me hungry. The images also make me feel a little anxious because who would put cookies and potato chips on top of their comics?!

See more of the series after the break.

x-men-pringles

Getting that last chip at the bottom of the Pringles can is rather difficult. But it wouldn’t be tough at all for a mutant—one swipe of Wolverine’s blades, or one gust of wind from Storm, and that chip would be out of the can in no time!

The folks at Pringles decided to do a little experiment to see what would happen if Wolverine, Storm and Magneto pooled their powers together to get that last chip out of the Pringles can. They built a machine that utilizes each of their powers, and once they turned it on, the results were pretty entertaining.

Watch what happened after the break…

Oreos are pretty great on their own, but a couple of expert chefs have teamed up with Oreo to find casual “hack” recipes to make the delicious cookies even better.

For their ongoing “Snack Hack” series, Oreo asked chefs Roy Choi, Michael Voltaggio, and Nguyen Tran to create Oreo-based recipes that are simple and creative. The resulting dishes are very tasty-looking too: Choi came up with a Golden Oreo cookie and panko-breaded chicken recipe, Tran made bread pudding and Voltaggio made nachos and Lemon Oreo shandies.
