Now I love cappuccinos just as much as the next caffeine-addicted Internet denizen, but I’m not sold on the idea of cappuccino-flavored potato chips. But some of the other flavors in this year’s Do Us A Flavor competition from Frito-Lay are a bit out there too: cheddar bacon mac & cheese, mango salsa and, of course, wasabi ginger. The four flavors will hit supermarket shelves later this month, and the public can vote on their favorite flavor through Oct. 18. The inventor of the most popular flavor will win a $1 million reward.

Which version are you most excited to try?

A Big Flat Sandwich, for the uninitiated, is basically a whole loaf of bread that’s been hollowed out and filled with a vast assortment of meats, cheeses and veggies. Then the sandwich is compressed for a few hours, and voilà, you’ve got a tasty, panini-like flat sangie that’s packed with more greasy cholesterol than your heart can handle.

This might be rather hard to believe, but the creepy yet beautiful bejeweled skulls pictured above are actually cakes. British baker Annabel de Vetten of Conjurer’s Kitchen created these cake skulls recently—and they’re completely edible, right down to the teeth and the pillows they’re resting on. The skulls are made from chocolate, buttercream, hard candy, marzipan and sugar balls. Their gilded appearance was inspired by historically authentic bejeweled skeletons that Dr. Paul Koudounaris photographed for his books on macabre art.

kfc corsage

Prom season is here, and you don’t want to present your date with any old corsage. Spice up the traditional flower bracelet with some KFC. The fast food joint has partnered with Nanz & Kraft Florists to offer the limited edition drumstick corsage – only 100 are available.

The corsage kit doesn’t actually come with chicken, just a $5 KFC “gift check” so you choose whether to include Original Recipe, Extra Crispy or Kentucky Grilled Chicken in the corsage with fresh baby’s breath. For $20, I’d say it’s not such a bad deal, and it’s certainly something your prom date will remember forever. And hey, it’d be great to have a snack on hand (literally) during the dance.

Watch KFC’s ad for the chicken corsage after the break.

Blue milk is one thing, but blue chicken? Yuck. California-based photographer Lawrie Brown painted all sorts of common, everyday food items extremely bright colors in her photo series, “Colored Foods.” The resulting garishly colored foods don’t look very tasty, but they sure are eye-catching to say the least.

This towering sandwich has a food for every single letter of the alphabet stacked between two pieces of bread. It was made by Nick Chipman of Dude Foods who also built the McEverything sandwich with one of every McDonald’s sandwich.

evian spider-man

The release date for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is just a month away (it comes out on May 2nd), and Spider-Man is keeping busy. He’s not just saving the day, he’s appearing in all kinds of advertising. When he’s not helping the USPS with Priority Mail, he’s meeting a baby version of himself in an Evian water commercial.

He dances with baby Spidey, and the little guy mimics all of his moves. And you know what? It is so freaking weird. I don’t even know what to do with it.

See the commercial for yourself after the break.

pizza 1

Pepperoni pizzas can exist in the wild according to photographer Jonpaul Douglass. He’s been using $5 pizzas from Little Caesars in his photo series titled “Pizza In The Wild.”

Douglass was inspired by seeing pizza graffiti in his neighborhood. Once he found affordable pies of the right size, he started posing them on locations such as a pony, a basketball pole, or just on the ground. It’s a weird and fun series of photos, but mostly I want to rescue all the wasted pizza by putting it in my tummy.

See more of the silly photo series after the break.

Salad

So, you think you’re a real foodie? A true culinary connoisseur? Well, you ain’t a real food fan until you wear your meals on your head. I didn’t make up the rules. That’s just how it is. No excuses. But if you’re concerned about making a mess, then you can head on over to Etsy shop MaorZabarHats, which specializes in all sorts of fancy hats, including a number of food hats.

Owner Maor Zabar created a whole bunch of felted wool faux-meals that you can wear on your head, and options include a sushi platter, a salad, an egg breakfast and what I can only assume is a pie or some sort of terrible space-borne spore infection from Mars (could go either way on that one).

Talk about technological advancements: just the other day I found out that there’s a new way to transport your beer growler on your bike, and today I find out that you can securely transport a banana on your bike too! Yes, there’s actually a leather holder that you attach to your bike to hold your banana (get your mind out of the gutter, thank you). The leather is designed so that it can snap onto just about anything: your bike seat, the handlebars and even your belt. Yep, you can holster your banana on your hip. Ok. I’m done now.
