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.
Apparently Burger King is still running with their plan of “throw insane food ideas out there and see what sticks.”
On Monday, different Burger Kings around the country are going to start selling “Mac n’ Cheetos.” Basically, they took giant Cheetos, stuffed them with macaroni and cheese, then deep fried them. You’ll get five of them for $2.49.
They say Mac n’ Cheetos are for, quote, “anyone who wished they could eat warm mac n’ cheese like they do a bag of chips.” Did anyone really wish for that?
The only thing that’s weird about this business is that no one thought of it sooner.
There’s a new toy company called Cuddle Clones that will make you a stuffed animal replica of your PET. You send them some photos and information, and they send you back a stuffed animal that looks as similar to your pet as possible.
They do dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, pigs, horses . . . you name it. And based on the photos we’ve seen, they’re actually pretty accurate.
You can do it to get a stuffed version of a pet that’s still alive . . . maybe to take on vacation, or send to college with your emotionally-stilted child.
Or you can do it to get a stuffed version of a DEAD pet . . . which is creepy, but still way less creepy than going to a taxidermist.
You can order yours at CuddleClones.com. It starts at $199 for dogs and cats, and they’ve already got so many orders that people who get in now will probably have to wait until July to get their stuffed animals.
The “New York Times” analyzed Google searches to find which Thanksgiving recipes are unusually popular in each state. And while they’re all strange, most of them sound off-the-charts indulgent. We need to start sharing this stuff people!
Here are five of the weirdest dishes . . . and they’re actually popular in MORE than one state . . .
- Snicker apple salad is popular in South Dakota, Iowa, and Nebraska. It’s a dessert featuring chopped up Snickers candy bars and apples in whipped cream.
- Frog eye salad . . . in Nevada, Idaho, Wyoming, and Colorado. It’s a salad with pasta, fruit, eggs, whipped cream, and marshmallows.
- Stuffed artichokes . . . in New York and New Jersey.
- Pumpkin whoopee pie, in New Hampshire and Maine. It’s two pumpkin cookies with a cream cheese filling in between.
- Sopapilla cheesecake, in Oklahoma and Texas. Basically a cheesecake made with crescent rolls, loosely based on the Latino sopapilla pastry.
There are a few others that sound great just on their name ALONE: Cookie salad in North Dakota . . . key lime cake in Georgia . . . maple walnut pie in Vermont . . . corn pudding in Maryland . . . and pineapple casserole in South Carolina.
And the worst unusually popular Thanksgiving dish? It’s a landslide win for Oregon, where the number one choice is . . . vegan mushroom gravy.
Montana’s unusually popular Thanksgiving food is a close second . . . it’s fruit salad. Come on, Montana. Just fruit? People just one state over are mixing Snickers bars with whipped cream and calling it a salad!
