PareUp Pairs Restaurants With Customers Who Want to Buy Leftovers

PareUp1

On one hand, we’ve got people going to sleep on empty stomachs. On the other, we’ve got restaurants throwing away leftovers (AKA perfectly good food) every day when it’s time to close up. It’s unfortunate, but that’s just how things work–or is it? Aiming to change this, even on a small scale, are the folks behind PareUp.

It’s an upcoming app that will let diners “pair up” with participating retailers and restaurants that will be selling their leftovers at discounted prices.

The Cover Blubber is made from sticky rubber material that’s EU and FDA-approved, and works best on foodstuffs that are uniformly shaped and on containers without exaggerated sides.Continue Reading

Saucony Burger Shoes1

These sneakers might not look out of the ordinary if you look at them from the front, but check it out from all sides and your stomach might just begin to rumble. Not that it actually looks like a burger that you could sink your teeth into, but it’s clear where its designers drew inspiration for its design.

The Shadow 5000 Burgers sneakers are a result of the collaboration between Saucony and End Clothing. I guess you can think of it as some sort of ode to burgers, which has grown in popularity over the years.

Peres Food Sniffer Lets You Know When Something’s Rotten

Peres Food Sniffer

If you’ve got a habit of sticking leftovers into the fridge and forgetting about them, then you might want to look into the Peres Food Sniffer. It’s basically what it’s name implies it is: a portable gadget that “sniffs” food to determine whether or not they’re spoiled or still safe to eat. Aside from forgetful people and their doggie bags, the Food Sniffer can be used to check whether something is still fit for consumption, whether it’s expiry date is three days away or many days past.

The Peres Food Sniffer works by “sniffing” and in effect, measuring the amount of volatile organic compounds and ammonia from the food, which are released when it’s about to spoil or is spoiled.

Ceres-Calorie-App

Counting calories involves a lot more work than you think.

The project is called Ceres, and it’s basically an app that lets users count calories by having them take pictures of their food. The actual counting is up to the app.

Domino’s Launches ‘Pizza’ Where The Dough Is Fried Chicken

dominos-speciality-chicken-041414

We’re calling Domino’s new Specialty Chicken dish a ‘pizza’ mainly because the concept involves putting pizza toppings on top of a bed made out of fried chicken bits. And while that’s not exactly a pizza, it’s close enough. In other words what you have here is 12 chicken morsels arranged in the shape of a flat, somewhat longish base on which they’ve put cheese, sauce, and other things that normally would go on a pizza. It’s an odd proposition, and the company is aware. They’re launching a promotional campaign along with it called “Failure is an Option”, where they admit to the product’s outside-the-box nature in the hopes that people will keep an open mind.

We’re intrigued, all the more so since it’ll cost all of $6. If any one of you tries it, leave a comment here to let others whether to take the plunge.

Not a Good Idea If You’re On a Diet: Burrito Yoga Bag

Burrito Yoga Baga

 

Everyone’s into yoga these days and for good reason, too. Whether you want to stay fit or be more flexible, yoga is the way to go. With so many people into yoga these days, the bevy of related merch and gear like this Burrito Yoga Bag isn’t surprising. However, if you’re attending classes for the primary reason of getting fit, then you might want to get another bag for obvious reasons.

The bag is just the right size and shape for most yoga mats and basically looks like a giant burrito wrapped in foil on the outside. The Burrito Yoga Bag is priced at $40, which costs more than the average yoga bag and way more than a burrito, but the awesomeness is worth it.

For Happy Breakfasts: Crack a Smile Mold

Smile Egg Mold

Not everyone wakes up to greet a new day feeling chipper and full of life. That’s especially true for night owls and for people who just aren’t morning persons. For these people, something that can help or at least add a little cheer is the Crack a Smile egg mold. As the name implies, the mold basically turns scrambled eggs into smiley faces and you probably can’t help but crack a smile when you see a humongous, yellow smiley face on your plate.

If you’re not much of an egg person, then you can use the mold for your pancakes instead.
