Does Anyone Really Need A Keurig For Cookies?

chip_1

It’s pretty amazing how many appliances are starting to use the single-serve, pod-based, Keurig-like method of delivering their goods to your mouth. The latest one to come to our attention is the CHiP Cookie Oven, that uses raw cookie pods with a barcode; the device scans the code, then uploads baking information to the appliance through WiFi. It’ll know just what temperature to set itself to, and for how long to circulate its hot air over your snacks, which will be ready in roughly 10 minutes. The cookie pods will be sold to you through a subscription service, which, depending on the service level, will give you cookies ranging in price from 88 cents to $2. Full retail price is expected to be $249, but the current Kickstarter campaign will give Early Birds a CHiP Cookie Oven for as little as $99.

The CakeDozer Helps Get Your Slice Of Pie Off With Ease

cakedozer6

It’s the little things. Like when you’re using a regular pie server and you’re transferring one delicate slice onto a plate, and the darn thing won’t just slide off, so you’re stuck having to unceremoniously flop it over to its side. That’s a little thing that shouldn’t annoy anyone, but does. So an item like the CakeDozer is created to solve this non-problem. It’s got a little bulldozer on the handle that gently pushes off whatever is on it. It’s not going to change anyone’s life, but might make the process of serving cake and pie just a little bit easier, so its $16.50 asking price seems more than justified.

Seasoning Stix Season From The Inside

stix-2

Seasoning Stix looks like a cool product. It’s a flavour stick you jam into your food, and it flavours it from the inside.

Seasoning Stix are solid “sticks” of seasonings, spices and herbs, which are inserted into meat, fish and poultry prior to cooking to season from the inside out.

At approximately 110F food science takes over. Water is driven out, Seasoning Stixs begin to liquify and the meat absorbs the seasonings like a sponge.

It’s the first major change in seasonings in 1,000 years.

So unique it’s already been award three U.S. Patents.

It’s currently available for $35, which will give you over 100 stix of different flavours, like Classic Garlic and Backyard Barbecue.

KFC Is Giving Away Fried Chicken Sunscreen. Yes, Really

kfc-fried-chicken-sunscreen

Now more than ever, the expression “roasting in the sun” will be a little bit more than figurative. Although, technically, that’s not right either since KFC doesn’t roast its chicken. No, we suppose that if you’re one of the lucky few who managed to snag a bottle of KFC Extra Crispy Sunscreen, you’ll be able to tell your friends you’re “frying in the sun” instead. Yes, they’re all sold out now, sadly, but for a while anyone who visited ExtraCrispySunscreen.com would be given a free bottle of SPF 30 sunscreen that smells just like KFC’s delicious staple item. The smell is described by one pretentious people.com writer as “absolutely revolting”, which we take to mean “arm-bitingly delicious”. Yes, we’re sad they’re all gone, and we’re kinda hoping anyone who managed to snag one will put them up on eBay.

Zip N Store Finds Room For All Your Ziplocked Stuff

zipnstore-1

If you live in an apartment with limited space, products like the Zip N Store should interest you. It’s a system designed to hold ziplock bags, involving a slide-out drawer that installs in your fridge; you just hang up to 12 bags off it and easily reach for them whenever you need anything. It’ll accept bags of just about any capacity, and not only of the Ziplock brand variety. Pledges start at $30, with shipping estimated around December of this year.

Clever Kebab Maker Is Perfect For Summer

clever-kebab-maker-xl

There are few things more satisfying than barbecued meat on a stick. But what would be the point of living in civilized society if we didn’t invent some kind of tool for making the process of getting the meat on the skewers easier? The Clever Kebab Maker makes it super simple to just layer your meats and veggies inside, stick the skewers right through the openings, and cuts your protein into perfect 1.2″ cubes. You can easily make 16 kebabs at once, and it doesn’t have to be meat only; the device will work with cakes, fruit, or pretty much anything you’d wanna eat off a stick. It’s all of $35.

The Whopper Air Freshener

whopper-air-freshener-1

Think of the Whopper Air Freshener as the ‘reverse freshener’. When most people buy these things to get the fast food smell out of the car, Burger King Brazil would like to help you do the opposite; this freshener smells just like the burger that inspired it. As crazy as it may sound, we’re convinced there’s a market for this. Considering things like Bacon Lube exist, it’s not much of a stretch of the imagination to conceive of hungry gluttons wanting their car to smell like one of the best tasting burgers on the market (yes, we said it).

Much as it would be great to buy this for yourself (or get it free, right? I mean, it’s not like someone would pay for this…), it appears to have been part of a publicity campaign where taxi drivers would hang it on their mirrors and pick up drunk clubgoers. The smell would of course overwhelm their already uninhibited senses and cause them to re-route their trip to the closest Burger King. Genius.

It’s The Donutception, A Donut On Donut On Donut Donut

inception-donut

It seems that it was National Donut Day last Friday, and to celebrate this, The Cinnamon Snail in New York City created the above. It’s a donut that uses donut-shaped cookies as decoration, cookies which in turn are decorated with Cheerio’s like rings that are meant to look like donuts themselves. It’s a donut party three levels deep, a party so intense the bakery felt it appropriate to charge $7 for its consumption. For reference, that’s about seven times more than anyone should feel entitled to charge for a ring of sugary dough, but what do we know.

Are they still selling it? Did anyone even buy it? Seeing as we like to report news a few days late, we’ll never really know.

KFC Makes Nail Polish That Tastes Like Chicken

kfc-nail-polish-e1462378160998

Their slogan is “Finger Lickin’ Good”, so it sort of makes sense, doesn’t it? See, as part of a promotional effort in Hong Kong, the local KFC office has apparently created nail polish that looks just like regular nail color, but happens to taste of delicious fried chicken. That way, well, you can spend your days looking entirely normal with your fingers in your mouth. They come in two flavours: Hot & Spicy, and Original Recipe. They were conceived and developed by McCormick, the spice company behind KFC’s secret spice and herb mix, and are allegedly completely safe to consume. The polishes are not being mass produced yet; the company is showing early prototypes off in promotional pics and asking fans to vote on which flavour they’d actually like to see being made. Whether it does ever make it into the wild, let alone stateside, is anyone’s guess.
