Bake, Eat, Repeat: Bakeable Kit Kats

Baked Kit Kat

 

Have a break, have a Kit Kat! But if your break is longer than the average, then why settle for a regular Kit Kat when you can have a baked one? This latest offering is only available at Japan’s Kit Kat Chocolaterie and is dubbed as “Delicious When Baked Pudding Flavored Kit Kats.” They’re essentially mini-sized, pudding-flavored Kit Kats that you’re supposed to pop into the oven before eating.

When heated in a toaster, the sugar content in the chocolate hardens into a solid candy-like state faster than the chocolate on the surface melts, resulting in a chocolate and wafer biscuit combination with a texture resembling a cookie and a sweet caramelized smell.

So This Exists: Spaghetti Flavored Popsicles

spaghetti-popsicle

It’s no news that people around the world eat all manner of strange foods; at least they’re strange to our Western sensibilities. But Japan often seems to take the cake with their creations. Case in point, the above Gari-Gari Kun which popsicle comes in Spaghetti flavour. We’re not sure if the actual taste is that of tomatoes and pasta, or if spaghetti is a euphemism for “a chunky looking mixture of red blobs and off-white… stuff”. We’re kind of hoping it’s the real deal, because frankly why not? The company also makes other offbeat flavours, like Corn Pottage and Rice Cakes with Bean Paste.

Anyone in Japan ever tried one of these?

Chicken Soup for the Soul Finally Gives You More Than Just Stories

Chicken Soup for the Soul

 

For decades, the Chicken Soup for the Soul series have touched people’s hearts and warmed their insides the way hot chicken soup can. What started out as a single title expanded to include dozens of books, each containing anecdotes and stories with a hidden lesson or two.

Its creators must’ve decided that touching lives with the written word wasn’t enough, because they now want to warm people up and feed their souls and stomach with actual chicken soup. The Chicken Soup for the Soul brand of Chicken Noodle Soup is apparently “inspired by your stories about food and feelings.” I’m not sure how you can add “feelings” to ready-to-serve soup, but I suppose that’s marketing for you.

Aside from instant soup, the brand will also be stamping their brand on broths, gravy, sauces, soup toppers, and even pet food. It doesn’t come as a surprise, considering there are numerous volumes under their Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul series.

Every Pizza Hut Should Have This: NFC-Enabled Tables That Let You Choose Toppings

Pizza Hut Concept Table

 

Nothing beats pizza, fresh out of the oven. But waiting for the pie to be served can be a drag, especially if you’re starving and happen to be dining at a pizza place that’s filled to the brim with other equally-hungry diners.

In a quest to make the ordering and waiting process less of a pain, Pizza Hut teamed up with Chaotic Moon Studios to come up with this concept for an interactive NFC-enabled table. It’s essentially a gargantuan, table-sized tablet that hooks up to diners’ smartphones via NFC. It transforms into an interactive menu where you and your companions can choose what toppings you want on your pizza.

Fixie Pizza Cutter

If you never really learned how to ride a bike when you were a kid, then now’s your chance.

Spare Tire Mount Grill: No Flat (Stomachs) Here!

Spare Tire Mount Grill

So this is the Spare Tire grill from Front Runner, and the first things you’ll notice are its peculiar-looking legs. In fact, the grill itself looks unlike most of the other grills on the market. The Spare Tire grill won’t be able to replace the grill that’s already in your backyard, but it will be your go-to grill for traveling or when you go camping.

There’s a reason why the grill’s solid steel legs are oriented that way. Staying true to its name, the Spare Tire grill can be hooked over a spare wheel (only those that measure 29” to 37” anyway) so you can fill your car with either more people, more meat, more coolers, or more sleeping bags. The grill is laser cut and forged from stainless steel, with grill and griddle sections so you can cook your food the way you want to.

The Spare Tire grill is available online for $125.

Droolin’ Over Bricks: LEGO Food That Looks Good Enough to Eat

LEGO Food

Above is what pancakes slathered in syrup and topped with butter would look like if we lived in a pixelated world. We don’t, but that didn’t stop master Lego builder Sachiko Akinaga from putting together this gallery of scrumptious-looking dishes using nothing but Lego bricks. It’s hard enough–at least, for me–to build something from sets that contain actual instructions, so what Sachiko achieved here is no small feat.

Aside from the most common breakfast food ever, he also built a banana (that has just been peeled), some sushi, and even a burger. Hit the break to check out the rest of his work.Continue Reading
