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?

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


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…
