A Frog Burger Because Japan

frog-burger

We know what you’re thinking… There’s no way those are actual frog legs sticking out of that black-bunned burger. Well then, you obviously haven’t been paying attention to our extensive coverage of Japan, where anything is possible, and its usually bat-shit cray-cray.

The Frog Burger is oh so very real, and is indeed an actual frog, with its deep-fried legs sticking out from the bun. If nothing else, the protruding legs are a very good and disturbing reminder of what you’re eating.

The Frog Burger is part of museum Orbi Yokohama‘s promotion for their Deadly Poison Exhibition. Hopefully, the non-toxic variety were used for the burgers.

Cake-Flavored Wine Exists

Remember when wine just tasted like grapes? Well, in the age of flavored alcohol that probably shouldn’t exist, there’s now wine that tastes like cake. Yes, you read that correctly.

Birthday Cake Vineyards are the people responsible for this, offering a series of dessert-flavored wines — including Strawberry Shortcake, Black Forest, Cheesecake, Coffee Cake and Cake Batter.

Either way, the wines will be a great time-saver — if you had plans to indulge your sweet-tooth and getting your drunk on separately. Check them out here.

Cosmic Diner, Dinnerware Made To Look Like The Planets, Moons, and Sun

1

If you’re looking to make a dinner party that’s out of this world, or have Neil deGrasse Tyson coming over, the Cosmic Diner Plate Set is here to help.

The 11-piece set includes a few planets, moons and our sun. But, unlike previous planet plates, Cosmic Diner shows no love for Mother Earth. Although the set does include Saturn’s moon, Titan, and was nice enough to not relegate Pluto to a snack plate. Poor Pluto.
