This Ceramic Xenomorph Cookie Jar Is Hugging Itself


Why? Why is the Xenomorph Cookie Jar hugging itself? We don’t know and it probably doesn’t matter, but you kind of try to make an article with more than 20 words, so what else are you going to talk about? It’s a cookie jar. It’s made of ceramic. It looks freaking badass, and considering we’ve recently been flooded with Star Wars stuff, we’re happy it’s not that. It’s the work of sculptor Paul Harding, and yes, it’s an officially licensed Aliens product. It’s $45.

3D Printing Now Lets You Make Cookies That Look Just Like You


Etsy seller Kriszti Bozzai, who goes by the name Copypastry on the site, is selling cookie cutter stamps that are a little different than what you’ll find in the baking aisle in your local shop. You send her your picture, and she’ll hand-draw a caricature based on that. She’ll then pop it up in into the 3rd dimension, and print the resulting line art on her 3D printer to create a cookie cutter that makes cookies that bear your resemblance. Of course you’re not limited to a picture of you, it can be a logo, family portrait or almost anything else. It’s $50.

Dunking Buddy Helps You Dunk Your Cookies

Screen Shot 2014-10-20 at 1.19.01 PM

Living in the first world sure seems to make it possible to think it’s necessary to design things like the Dunking Buddy. It’s a little gadget that helps you dunk your cookies in milk, because apparently holding them in your fingers is either too hard or too annoying. You could, after all, drop one in… and then that would be disastrous. So the Dunking Buddy attaches to the side of your glass with a magnet (with one part inside) and gives you a tiny plastic tray in which to place your sugary flour discs. That way the rampant danger of drowning cookies is mitigated, and everyone can snack stress-free.

It’s still under development, with a patent pending (!) and an undisclosed price. But you can sign up to be notified of when it’ll be launched.

Spice Up Your Holidays: Sriracha-Twisted Candy Cane Cookies

Sriracha-Twisted Candy Cane Cookies

Some people like it hot. Not hot as in piping hot, but hot as in spicy, Sriracha hot. That might be fine for a bunch of food and drinks, including popcorn and candy canes, but what about Christmas cookies? You’ll have to be the judge of that by baking your own batch of these sweet and spicy candy cane cookies.

The white part is plain sugar cookie dough, while the red bit is the red spiced dough where the sweet peppermint in traditional recipes is replaced with Sriracha instead. The result is something that you’ve probably never tried before.

You can find the recipe here.

Latest Food Oddity: Watermelon Oreos


Hot on the heels of other odd, limited edition Oreo flavors like Candy Corn, Gingerbread and Birthday Cake, Nabisco is releasing Watermelon Oreos this summer. And unlike some other similarly bizarre concoctions from the company, these cookies are described as not being overly sweet and sickly:

The problem with so many of these wild Oreo flavors is that they’re sickly sweet, to the point where the cream tastes like honey. Not regular honey, mind you. Not like, Stop & Shop honey hiding in a plastic bear. I’m talking about the honey you’d find at a maw-and-paw general store in the middle of nowhere. […] Not these, though. These have a bite, but it’s much more subtle. If I can call 75 calories’ worth of pure fat “light,” each of these cookies is light.

The best part about this piece of news is that the product is already available on store shelves, such as Target where they’re reportedly available for $3 a pack.

Way Better for Your Cholesterol: Super-Realistic Bacon-Shaped Cookies

Bacon Cookies

How do you like your bacon? I like mine caramelized with sugar so it’s sweet, smoky, and chewy–just how I like it! The thing is, it’s not the healthiest breakfast food around and if you’re watching your health, then you need to cut down on your bacon consumption. Like they say, sometimes it’s mind over matter and you can cheat a little by having your bacon and still being able to eat it too.

The catch is that it’s not actual bacon anymore. In this case, you’ve got bacon cookies instead.

Cookie Cutters Make Parts For Delicious 3D Dinosaurs

A cookie cutter is nothing new, but a cookie cutter that makes the various parts that go into a 3D dinosaur? Sign us up!

Cookie cutters in the shape of dinosaur body parts. Cut out cookie dough, bake in the oven, then slot the cookies together to make edible dinosaurs that will stand up your plate. Create the tastiest treats this side of the Jurassic period… then eat them into extinction. Each pack includes cutters for the body parts required to bake a whole dinosaur, with 4 to collect (Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Brachiosaurus and T-Rex)

Each pack is £7.50 or about $12. You can’t choose which one you get but rather purchase a random one, which does sort of suck if you’re really keen on buying all four. But really, we don’t know that anyone will mind so much.
