An App That’ll Have You Smelling Meat While Eating Something Else

Screen shot 2013-10-03 at 10.13.48 PM

Want to enjoy the satisfying smell of meat, even when you’re eating something else? There’s an app for that.

Brought to us by Japanese company Scentee, is something called Hana Yakiniku or ‘Nose Grilled Meat.’ It’s an app accompanied by a scent cartridge for your smartphone. When prompted on the screen, your smartphone will emit the scent of a meat.

The rationale for this, is that the aroma of meats will help satiate the eater, when they’re actually dining on something that may not be as caloric and meaty. Japan, you just keep being you.

Kentucky Fried Chicken Makes Deep-Fried Soup Now

Deep-fried soup exists. And, it’s not NASA harnessing this technology, but rather KFC — probably with the help of a few former members of NASA.

KFC Japan is selling a corn potage in solid form to make soup on-the-go even easier. The makeshift corn fritter goes on sale this month. No spoon required.

A 45-Page Water Menu Exists at LA Restaurant

Water-02

You know that stuff that comes out of your faucet for free? Well, there’s now a restaurant that would like you to drive to their location, gaze upon a 45-page menu of nothing but water, and then non-ironically order a $16-bottle from a “water sommelier.”

The restaurant that you probably hate now is called, Ray’s and Stark Bar, and it’s unsurprisingly in L.A. However, the menu is kind enough to offer tasting notes, and uses a lot of fancy adverbs to describe each clear tasteless liquid.

Feeling thirsty yet? Scroll through the water menu below…

This Vodka Is Made From Cow’s Milk

cows-milk-vodka-2

Moooove over, flavored vodka, there’s a new ridiculous drink concept in town. Black Cow Vodka uses milk instead of grain to make the formerly Russian and respectable clear alcohol.

Using a process that separates the cow’s milk into curds and whey, the curds are then used for cheese and the whey fermented to make a beer. A special yeast converts the milk sugar into alcohol, then the milk beer is distilled and treated to a secret blending process. The vodka is then triple filtered and finished, before being hand bottled. But we still can’t explain Peanut Butter & Jelly Vodka.

Jesus is omnipresent. At least that’s what we’re taught in Sunday school. And, if we’re to believe that Jesus is everywhere, then it only makes sense that he would occasionally make an appearance in our favorite foods.

Here are a few examples of Jesus showing up unexpectedly while people are simply trying to enjoy lunch. And remember, if you’d like to intentionally print Jesus on your food, we’ve got you covered.

Grilled Cheese

Frying Pan

Kit-Kat

Banana

Marmite
