  • Deep Fried Pumpkin Spice Latte Has Us Rethinking This Craze

    Hey, we’re all sick of pumpkin spice everything invading our lives. BUT we gotta say, deep frying anything is usually a good idea, so if we’re going to indulge in anything pumpkin spice flavored this fall, it might as well be a disgustingly divine fried treat. Food blog Oh, Bite It, which has fried tequila and beer in the past, has now tackled that ubiquitous fall flavor with pumpkin in the name but no sign of the squash in the taste. And as much as as we’d like to hate on it, these look pretty damn delicious. It’s basically just taking cubes of angel food cake, soaking them in pumpkin spice latte, and then frying them in canola oil. Oh, and some whipped cream on the side for dipping, of course. If these pictures get your mouth watering, head on over to Oh, Bite It for the full recipe.

  • You’ll Hate Yourself For Loving This Bacon Bowl Commercial So Much [Video]

    When the Bacon Bowl first came out, with it’s infomercial of dubious quality appealing to housewives whose only chance at love and affection from their husbands and children being bowls constructed entirely of bacon and filled with eggs and cheese, it was easy enough to dismiss the product. Unless you were high when the commercial was on, in which case you swore you’d buy one but luckily passed out before working up the energy to dial the phone number. But with this new commercial, complete with an epic theme song and novel uses for the bacon bowls (is that ice cream???), you might just want to go out and waste money on a device that seems to be nothing more than a muffin pan turned upside down. And where can one find these marathons with bacon and eggs for sustenance? Throw in a nice hearty stout, and that sounds like the greatest race ever!

  • This 8,000-Calorie Breakfast Is Served With A Waiver

    If you’re familiar with a traditional English breakfast, made up of eggs, beans, tomatoes, toast, bacon, mushrooms, and black pudding, you know it’s delicious and quite filling. But for Mark Winder, owner of Bear Grills, a cafe in the UK, the traditional breakfast was not enough. He added an omelet, fried bread, waffles, french fries, and a two-pint milkshake to create “The Hibernator.” The meal, a monument to gluttony, weighs seven pounds and will fill you up with 8,000 calories—four times the recommended daily intake! It takes 30 minutes to prepare and requires a waiver to be signed before eating. Priced at about $32, only 20 people have attempted to tackle “The Hibernator” thus far. None have finished it. But anyone who is able to eat the whole breakfast, if that’s even possible, will receive £100 ($160), their name on the wall of fame, have the meal named after them, and have the choice of adding another ingredient to the challenge. And even if you don’t succeed, you still got four days worth of food for a little over $30.

  • Conquering the Arby’s Mountain, A Tale of Regret and Perseverance

    A tale of regret and perseverance, by Heinrich Harrer. My day started like every other, drinking my coffee and listening to a morning radio show driving my daily commute. Little did I know that what I heard on that radio show would change the direction of my day towards something I never expected.  The radio hosts were talking about an article they had emailed to them from the Washington Post about a secret menu item that Arby’s was leaking out, the Meat Mountain. I didn’t think much of it at first, but further research in my cube rumored the sandwich to contain 3 Strips of Pepper Bacon, 1.5 ounces of Arby’s famous roast beast, 1.5 ounces of Angus steak, a 1.5 ounce brisket, 1.5 ounces of Corned beef, 1.5 ounces of ham, and 1.5 ounces of roast turkey all topped with 2 chicken tenders and then placed between two slices of cheese – cheddar and Swiss- then ceremoniously placed between a sandwich bun. After seeing a few pics online I decided that I was going to go potentially embarrass myself by asking for the mythical sandwich during my lunch hour. I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical at first, having been scorned and more »

  • Arby’s Has A Meat Mountain Sandwich, Because ‘Murica

    Poor Arby’s made the grave mistake of producing an advertisement featuring all of their available meat stacked upon one another. What did people do when they saw the ad? They did what every fine American would do, pointed to the picture and said “gimme.” Arby’s had to deliver and deliver they did, with the new “secret menu” option that is blowing up all over the web—the Meat Mountain. What comes on this glorious sandwich? The Meat Mountain features 2 chicken tenders, roast turkey, ham, Swiss cheese, corned beef, brisket, Angus steak, cheddar cheese, roast beef, and bacon all on a bun. And it only costs $10, which is a great deal according to Fast Company who did the math and figured out the same ingredients would cost $9.13 at a grocery store. But should you eat the Meat Mountain? With about 1200 calories and 48 grams of fat, it’s probably not going to do you any favors to eat it. But you only live once, and in the words of the great Warren Zevon, “enjoy every sandwich.”

  • Unhealthiest Restaurant Meal Announced; Looks Delicious

    Since 2007, the Center for Science in the Public Interest has ranked the most unhealthy meals at national chain restaurants. Back in the salad days of the aughts, when we were all carb-conscious and slightly less morbidly obese, the CSPI was surprised to find meals that contained over 1500 calories. Realizing how unimpressive such calorie-lacking meals were on a “most unhealthy” list and possibly in collusion with husky-size clothing manufacturers, America’s restaurants stepped up their game. This year almost every meal contained over 2000 calories and a few even broke the 3000 mark. But who came out on top? With 3540 calories, 2 days worth for those skinny Minnies out there, Red Robin’s Monster Meal kills the competition (and possibly those with certain health conditions). The meal consists of a 1670 calorie Monster Burger, 370 calories worth of fries (but they’re bottomless, so keep eating, fatty!), and the option of 1500 calories of milkshake. Should you eat it every day? Probably not. But indulging now and then won’t kill you. And with that said, anybody know where the closest Red Robin is to Hoboken? Want to know what else made the list? See the Xtreme Eating 2014 winners at CSPI.

  • You Can Tell A Woman’s Personality Based on Her Sandwich Order. Back Me Up Science.

    Next time you decide to go on a date you might be better off taking a lady out to lunch instead of dinner. Food Psychologist Dr Elizabeth Jones, of Mindlab, who conducted the correlation analysis study for Warburtons said: “Personality traits tend to go hand-in-hand with personal habits and routines, which allows us to match the type of bread and filling a woman chooses to have at lunch with a personality group. “Down to earth women go for White bread, foodies prefer Wraps and females who think realistically pick Wholemeal.” The Daily Express said of the research: “Women who were fans of the BLT on seeded bread were ‘opportunists’ who lived for the moment. These BLT women demonstrated common sense and had a good sense of humour, according to the research. Ladies who picked the humble ham salad on white bread were ‘forward thinkers’, constantly seeking inspiration and were inventive and original. Beef roll devotees were ‘impulsives’, being able to work to tight deadlines and enjoy the thrill of spectator sports. Lovers of Cheese and pickle were the ‘brainiacs’, full of ideas, logical and enjoy crosswords.”

  • 10 of the Toughest Man Meals on the Planet

    According to Hemingway, a man’s diet should consist of ham, sausage, sauerkraut, and beer. In other words, Hemingway thinks men should follow the diet of a German soldier. But what dishes scream manliness like bacon and eggs or simply a pint of scotch, neat. Here, we’re trying to tackle the manliest meals from around the world. We’re not looking for heart-attack burgers or  twenty-three pounds of pork. Instead, we’re giving you hearty, traditional dishes fit for the men at the navy yard. Schweinshaxe, Germany: More specifically, pork knuckle. Juicy and crackly, the Germans serve this platter atop a few pounds of Knödel (potato dumplings), sauerkraut, or red cabbage. Up the Mante: Cleanse your palate with a liter of Augustiner, which is basically another meal in itself.   Black Pudding, United Kingdom: Not pudding in any American sense, black pudding is actually sausage encased with pork blood and oatmeal. Up the Mante: Order with a battered and fried with a traditional English, served with massive slabs of bacon — not like our thin, overly crisp version — fried eggs, more sausage, and, of course, a cup of tea.   Sannakji, South Korea: This South Korean staple turns dinnertime into Fear Factor. more »
