Taco Bell’s New App Lets You Order Food, Skip The Line

tacobelllead

It’s lunchtime and your bowels are seriously hankering for a beating? No better way to go about it than to stuff your face with some tasty Taco Bell. But hey, that long line just to place an order? Ain’t nobody got time for that, so Taco Bell’s just released an new iOS and Android app that not only lets you place your order before you even reach the restaurant, but also customize each item to your liking and pay from your phone. The company won’t actually make the food until you reach your closest location in order to safeguard its “freshness”, but at least you won’t have to wait an hour while hungry patrons stare at the menu while making their minds up; there will be dedicated mobile pickup lines, separate from the regular lines. Interestingly, the app uses your location to determine when to prompt you to confirm you’re ready to have your food prepared. When you accept the prompt, the order is sent directly to the kitchen and your name will be called when it’s ready.

We could wax poetic about bacon all day. Just look at our bacon tag to see how much we love the stuff. So don’t be surprised that we’re excited to find out that Philadelphia Cream Cheese has announced the release of a Bacon version of their cheesy spread! It’s stuffed with Oscar Meyer bacon bits It’s only available in a few select stores in the US right now, but will be expanding soon. Apparently it goes really well stuffed into a French Toast.

Cucumbo Makes Cucumber Coils

cucumbo

There are those who cook because they have to eat, and then there are those who do because it’s fun. If you’re in the second camp, maybe you’ll get a kick out of Cucumbo. It doesn’t really do anything other than to slice a cucumber in a coil pattern. Stick it in there, and twist. The end product looks kind of cool, and we suppose presentation is important. It’s a cheap and simple way to have a little fun in the kitchen. $13.

Dining In Your Skivvies: Lapkins are Napkins for Your Lap

Lapkins

 

Lapkins are for your lap, while napkis are for your naps…er, okay, so that’s not quite how it works for the latter. Both actually serve the same function, since lapkins are basically napkins with a quirky design. And by quirky, we mean images of underwear, so it’ll look like you’re dining with nothing but your skivvies on.

They’re sold in sets of 24 and feature three designs: a pair of men’s briefs, ladies’ undies, and a fig leaf for the daring. The Lapkins are available for $14.

Can of Potato Chip Coasters: Yummiest Coasters Ever

Can of Potato Chip Coasters

Go for prevention instead of the cure. Not that water rings are a disease, but they eventually become a pain to clean up once you’ve left them on your coffee table long enough. Prevention has always been to grab a coaster and set it down onto the table before you put your glass down. It’s natural for people to forget (or be too lazy to get up and get one from the kitchen), so the solution comes in this little can.

It’s the coaster of Wavy Chips, and you’ll find a stack of coasters instead of potato chips inside this little canister. Go get your Pringles elsewhere because this can holds nothing but coasters. The quirky packaging lets you leave it right on the table, so it’s within reach anytime anyone needs one.

A can of four wavy chips coasters is priced at $12.99.

Caloriegasmic: Pizza With French Fry Dough

Pizza With French Fry Dough

 

There’s nothing like some good ol’ food porn to wind the week down, and what we’ve got here definitely qualifies. It’s pepperoni pizza with a big twist: instead of boring dough, the crust is made out of french fries! That probably ups the calories by a couple thousand or so, but one bite and you’ll probably forget about your diet or your pledge to eat healthier.

A lot of people have tried but failed to make a french fry dough. The folks over at Foodinese finally figured out how to do it and the solution was pretty simple: hold it together with cheese. Lots of cheese.

Serve it with ketchup or ranch, or drizzle more pizza sauce on top and bite into greasy heaven. You can find the recipe here.
