Popcorn Monsoon Puts The Fun In Pop… corn

popconr-monsoon

Yeah, that’s a sad headline, but there you have it. The Popcorn Monsoon is a little appliance for making popcorn, well, more fun. At least the popping part of it, since eating it is always kind of cool. The conceptual device uses hot air to get the kernels popped, which is healthier than oil. And then the popped corn gets pushed up this bent plastic tube and falls into an awaiting bowl. Kids can watch as the snack gets made, and they may look forward to eating it despite it being bland as heck.

Yes, this particular product has existed for ages, only this one has a longer neck and bright colors. But that’s just it, isn’t it? It’s amazing what a little design change can do to brighten up an otherwise bland and unassuming appliance. Sadly, it’s not a real product, though we suspect it would do well in the marketplace if anyone took the time to manufacture it.

Hershey-Backed 3D Chocolate Printer In The Works

Cocojet-Chocolate-3D-Printer-964x644

3D printers have become the new must-have technology, at least if we go by how many exhibits showcased a 3D printer at CES 2015. But while most of them are busy printing plastic objects, 3D Systems and The Hershey Company have been collaborating on the CocoJet, a 3D printer that uses melted chocolate as its building material. Users can pick between dark, milk, or white chocolate and can print preprogrammed shapes or make new ones. And then eat them!

The printer isn’t currently available, but 3D System’s ChefJet printer is set to be released in the second half of 2015. That particular machine spits out three-dimensional sugar, chocolate, or candy confections, so it stands to reason that CocoJet could follow a similar path to market.

The Cheesiest Pie Ever is This 99 Cheese Pizza

99 Cheese Pizza

Just how much cheese is too much cheese? Apparently, that threshold has yet to be reached, and we all have to conclude that humans love cheese just as much as mice do. Why? Well, the winner of this year’s Pizza World Championship happens to be the cheesiest pizza on the planet by Johnny Di Francesco.

It has the flavors of not ten, not twenty, not thirty, but ninety-nine different cheeses from all over the world. Johnny doesn’t top the pizza with all this cheese, because that would create a cheesy mountain no one can stuff into their mouth. Rather, he melted 94 of these cheeses into the base and topped the pie with buffalo mozzarella, goat cheese, ricotta, fior di latte, and raspadura.
