Not to divide this country even more, but DAMN, so many other states have terrible taste in food.
Thrillist.com just put together a list of the GROSSEST FOOD that people love in every state. Here are some of the highlights . . .
- Akutaq in Alaska. That’s “Eskimo Ice Cream” . . . but not delicious Eskimo Pies. It’s a mix of seal and other animal fats, with berries, and sometimes sugar and milk.
- New Haven Clam Pie in Connecticut. That’s pizza with clams and white sauce.
- Lamb fries in Kentucky. Those are deep-fried lamb testicles.
- Koolickle in Mississippi. That’s a pickle soaked in Kool-Aid. WHAT?
- Cincinnati Chili Five-Way in Ohio. It’s spaghetti with chili instead of red sauce, plus cheese, beans, and onions on top.
- Chop Suey Sandwich in Rhode Island. Yes, they put chop suey between two hamburger buns.
Oreo’s path to total junk food domination just took another big step forward. And I, for one, welcome our insane cookies-and-cream overlords.
Oreo just introduced their first CANDY BAR. It’s a gigantic milk chocolate bar that’s stuffed with layers of cream and Oreo cookies. And the chocolate is fancy, expensive European chocolate.
It’s starting to roll out to stores now and should be everywhere by January. And a smaller version will also be coming out then, in case you’re into moderation.
I like milk and cookies. Everyone likes milk and cookies. But now we know it’s possible to like them TOO much.
A 43-year-old guy named Robert Smith from Lakeland, Florida carjacked a woman at a gas station last week. He told her, quote, “Have [an effing] good day” . . . and then he sped off at 100 miles an hour.
His first stop was another gas station, where he stole a bunch of milk and cookies. His next stop? Another gas station, to steal more milk and cookies. And after that, he kept hitting gas stations . . . but ONLY taking milk and cookies.
The cops eventually caught up to him, and he admitted to carjacking the woman and stealing all the milk and cookies. But it’s not clear if he ever ate or drank any of them.
He’s only been charged with carjacking so far.

Starbucks Has a New Drink That’s Supposed to Taste Like Cereal Milk
Starbucks is selling the Pumpkin Spice Latte again, but they hadn’t introduced a NEW drink for fall in four years. Finally, our national nightmare is over.
Yesterday, they started selling the Toasted Graham Latte. It’s made with espresso, steamed milk, sweet cream, and graham cracker flavoring, with cinnamon and crumbled graham crackers on top.
Their manager of research and development came up with it, and she says it’s supposed to taste like the milk in the bottom of your CEREAL bowl. At least, that’s what inspired it.
Quote, “I thought about the back-to-school season and looked at the latest food and beverage trends. [And] what I found to be quite popular in the U.S. is the taste of cereal milk, the delicious leftovers in your breakfast bowl.”
You can get it at any Starbucks, quote, “until supplies run out.” Whatever that means.

Taste Like Cereal Milk
Apparently drinking milk and taking naps is more stressful than it sounds . . .
Teachers at a kindergarten in Russia recently went into panic mode when two five-year-old boys went MISSING in the middle of the afternoon.
They were outside on the playground, and disappeared. Which didn’t make sense, because the whole place was fenced in. So someone walked the perimeter and figured out what happened.
It turned out the two of them had spent the last several days using their toy shovels to dig a HOLE under the fence . . . and tunneled themselves out Shawshank style. It was actually more of an indentation in the ground under the fence, but still.
Police tracked them down after a woman saw them checking out cars at a Jaguar dealership more than a mile away. And when she asked what they were doing, they said they were there to get a, quote, “grown up car.”
Both of them are home safe now, and their parents aren’t pressing charges. But their teacher got fired for not keeping a closer eye on them.
