Noodles are just noodles. They are nothing but staple food, loved mostly in Asia, and with that being said, noodles, regardless of where it hails from, are hardly consider a delicacy. However, when a Japanese ramen gets a little too good to be mere strings of unleavened dough, it gets the attention of prestigious Michelin Guide and subsequently, slapped with holy grail of recognition of food excellence: the Michelin star. According to the Michelin guide, a Michelin star is “coveted by many chefs but bestowed upon only to an excellent few.” Continue reading Believe It Or Not, There’s Actually A One Michelin-Star Cup Noodle
A search on YouTube reveals a disturbing fetish in the human race. And what fetish that might be you ask? Well, key in the search term ‘pimple’ and hit enter, and lo and behold, videos of people popping huge, nasty pimples have crazy number of views. Some of them have been viewed in excess of 5 millions. Apparently, understanding human innate desire to see and/or pop zits, a Malaysia bakery called The Cakescape has conceived the inconceivable: Pimple Pooper Cake. Well, the Pimple Pooper Cake is pretty much what it says it is. A sweet, baked dessert with ripe-as-fuck, blood-red zits which you can squeeze to reveal its pale content. Ewwwww… that’s unequivocally gross! Continue reading Cake With Poppable Pimples Will Make You Quit Eating Cake Altogether
The brand of the sauce that I have come to know as the must-have when consuming spaghetti, Tabasco, has came up with what the company claimed as its hottest sauce yet. Called Tabasco Scorpion Sauce (not exactly an appetizing name, really), this new limited available source is said to be 20 times hotter than the company’s Original Red Sauce. Wow. 20 times, eh? The tolerance to spiciness rest on each individual, but as some hot sauce fanatics will tell you, Tabasco Original Red Sauce is mild by any standard – unless you down the entire bottle. Continue reading Sold Out Tabasco’s Hottest Hot Sauce Yet Will Be Available Again
You know what’s the cruelest thing a person can do to hot dog lovers? Making them eat hot dog with ketchup, AKA tomato sauce. To even harbor the thought of topping hot dog with ketchup amounts to blasphemy, at least it appears to be the case of Chicago hot dog lovers. For the record, I am not too enthusiastic about having tomato-based sauce on hot dogs too. Apart from caramelized fried onions and lettuce, mustard should be the only condiment that should be on top a hot dog. Period. However, Heinz, the ketchup maker, is not quite please at Chicago hot lovers’ anti-ketchup-on-your-hot-dog sentiment and set out with a marketing campaign to win them over. Continue reading Heinz, I Hate You For Putting Ketchup On Hot Dogs. How Could You???
Still feeling sour all these years since the death of the lime flavor Skittles in 2013? Well, the Mars’ brand of rainbow candies has news for you: your sour taste will not stop, but this time, you can bet your ass that the sour-ness will be that of lime. Yes. You heard it right. Skittles is resurrecting the lime flavor Skittles candy after much demand by diehard fans (really???), but apparently, only in Stateside. For the uninitiated, Skittles abruptly pull the plug on lime flavor candies after an apparent market research revealed that sour apple were in favor and since the taste is said to be almost identical to lemon, Skittles didn’t think it would have matter. Continue reading Good News, Lime Heads. Lime-flavored Skittles Is Making A Comeback!
What happens if you remove colors from something? Should colorless represented by white? This is kind of a mystery in life, but for Mars’ Skittles, they seem to think that removing the rainbow colors from the usual colorful sweets should result in white and hence the Skittles Limited Edition Fruit Sweets – in white, save for a few the alphabet ’s’, which is in black, on each ‘colorless’ candy. But why the hell would a candy company who uses colors primarily as a way to draw kids removed colors? If you don’t already know, June is Pride Month, well, at least it is in the U.S and in the U.K. And if you don’t know what Pride Month is, it is a LGBT event of sort, celebrated by the Gay community in memory of those members who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. Continue reading Skittles Removed The Rainbow, Goes White For Pride Month
I know no one who have the love for both fiery whisky and gummy bears, but I should be wise enough not to assume that no one love both and also, I should not assume that whisky-loving, or gummy bears-loving folks, never wished for whisky-loaded gummy bears. If it exists, I am sure it will please whisky lovers, though probably not pure gummy bears connoisseurs. Anywho, in case you happen to love the taste of Fireball Cinnamon Whisky in chewy form, well then, Etsy store VineGelee will have you covered. The store sells the popular Fire Ball fiery beverage in candy form which it aptly calls, Fire Bear! Cinnamon Whisky Gummy Bears. Continue reading Cinnamon Whisky Gummy Bears Are A Thing, But They Won’t Make You High
I have a lot to say about “world records” today, triggered by a so-called “most expensive hamburger in the world” we came across a couple of days ago. As you know, this being the Internet, information sometime can be rather misleading and confusing, and the record purportedly awarded by Guinness World Records to South of Houston, a bar kitchen in The Hague, The Netherlands, is one such confusing case. We read that this gastronomical delight whipped by Chef Diego Buik of South of Houston has snagged the Guinness World Records for most expensive hamburger with a gold-foiled covered top bun burger that cost $2,300 (some ’sources’ even said it was $3,600 and so…), but based on Time’s “8 of the Most Expensive Burgers Ever,” the priciest burger was FleurBurger at Fleur in Las Vegas which commanded a whopping $5,000 (!). Continue reading Is This $2,300 Dutch Burger Really The World’s Most Expensive?
In what could be the weirdest news in the world of sweet confectionary… Skittles, a Mars’ brand under Wrigley Company, has introduced a new kind of Skittles that is, well, destined to be hot and when we say ‘hot’, do we do mean ‘spicy’. Yup. You heard that right. Spicy Skittles and Starburst is a thing now and they are aptly called Skittles and Starburst Sweet Heat. So, those with a sweet tooth and the penchant for spicy treats (how does that even work???), do take note because this may go down well with your unique tastebud. Or maybe not. Continue reading Weirdest Thing Today: Spicy Skittles And Also, Spicy Starbust
