Shrimp Mayonnaise Doritos Exist


Usually, when a new and/or unusual Doritos flavor is discovered, it’s great news for our stoner friends. But in this case, we’re not sure if there’s weed strong enough to get you excited for Shrimp Mayonnaise Doritos.

Actually, the unusual flavor is a product of Japan, where shrimp and mayo is a popular pizza topping. Wow, the weed must be great over there.

A $500 Milkshake Exists


Just when we thought that a $5 mixture of milk and ice cream was a bit ridiculous, someone is now asking $500 for one with a straight face.

LA-based The Powder Room are the culprits — along with said milk and ice cream, the shake includes edible gold leaf, “the finest Belgian chocolates,” a host of liquors, and a $190 Swarovski Nirvana Mountain Ring.

Also included is a lethal dose of heroin, with a life-saving adrenaline shot to the heart. No, wait, sorry… That’s only included with the $5 shake.

This is What a Pre-Cooked McDonald’s McRib Looks Like


Sorry to ruin everyone’s lunch and childhood… But this is what a McDonald’s McRib looks like before it’s cooked and slathered in BBQ sauce. Not that it’s any surprise, as one of the most polarizing fast food items in history has always been shrouded in mystery — and that aforementioned sauce.

Although, seen here is Le McRib Canadien — so, we’re not sure if the same product is used in the US. We Americans tend to take our restructured meat product a bit more seriously.

Either way, the McRib will be back soon. And by that time, and when covered in sauce and encased in its yellow bun, you’ll probably forget we ever spoke. Enjoy.

The World’s Largest Chicken Nugget


So this happened… The World’s Largest Chicken Nugget was inexplicably created by Empire Kosher Poultry.

Many chickens were harmed in the making of the 51.1-pound ‘nugget,’ which took 45-minutes to deep-fry. Although at this size, it’s hardly a ‘nugget’ anymore. Let’s just all agree to disagree and call it the world’s largest ‘chicken slab.’ Now where’s the gallon of sweet and sour sauce?

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.
