Yeah, it so does not matter if this was in the interest of science or education. It’s gross! These cheeses were made using human bacteria from things like toes and belly buttons by scientist Christina Agapakis and scent expert Sissel Tolaas. According to Agapakis:
“Despite [their] chemical and biological similarities, there are obviously very different cultural and emotional responses to stinky cheese and stinky feet. By making cheese directly from the microbes on the body, we want to highlight these bacterial connections as well as to question and potentially expand the role of both odors and microbes in our lives.”
And no, they’re not made to be eaten. Why? Just…why?

The Egg Minder is a “smart” egg carton that notifies you via a “wink” message to your smartphone that you’re running low on eggs. The carton also features small, LED readouts that point out the oldest egg of the bunch.
Yep. This is actually a thing. Just curious, what haven’t we put a man on Mars yet? Oh, that’s right, it’s because we’ve been developing egg-monitoring technology for die-hard omelette fans. Yeah, that makes perfect sense.

When you’re in the business of making bizarre lollipop flavors, you’ve got to think outside of the norm. Lollyphile, the makers of the Sriracha lollipop, have outdone themselves in the bizarre category with their latest release – blue cheese lollipops.
It apparently started off as a joke and the owner of the company, Jason Darling, was hesitant to even try them. He was wrong though; he tried the finished product and the flavors work. Like they point out, blue cheese is often paired with honey so making it into a sugary treat is a natural choice. In theory.
Would you guys try a blue cheese lollipop?

This is a wedding cake and it’s adorned by creepy animal skulls that are made from chocolate. Baked by Annabel de Vetten of Conjurer’s Kitchen for Birmingham’s Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza, it puts some literal meaning into the wedding vows that newlyweds must promise to each other, especially the part that goes “Til death do us part…”
The ghastly cake is actually a white chocolate mudcake that’s surrounded by 16 carrion crows, 12 domestic kittens, 3 Vervet monkeys, and 4 barn owls, all of which were hand-sculpted. Apparently, death is a tough thing to bake, because it took Annabel over 100 hours to finish her creation.
I pity whoever has to do the laundry.
Tumblr user narcimallows added several sticks of Pixy Stix instead of the included flavor packet to his ramen, and this is the disgusting result.
Tired of sending sweet nothings off to your many prospective Valentines without any assurances that you’ll get an equally sweet response back? Then treat yourself in the process by using getting this set of note cards with chocolate-flavored envelopes instead. Not that you can eat the actual note card and envelope itself; rather, the seal on the envelope is flavored with sweet chocolate, so you’ll get a dose of chocolate-y goodness with every card.
