dairy-queen-may-2013-botm-choco-peanut-butter-brownie 600

McDonald’s Taiwan Rolls Out New Rice McWraps

mcdonalds-taiwan-mcwrap-comes-with-rice1

McDonald’s Taiwan recently tweaked the classic McWrap and added some local flavor into the mix. The new “Rice McWrap” features rice from nearby Tainan, a city in southern Taiwan, mixed with either chicken or beef, sauce and vegetables. The texture of the rice has a tender, “al dente-like chew” to it, with mushrooms and sesame oil added for a boost.

The chicken version includes a fried chicken patty, sliced cucumbers, greens and a sweet and hot sauce. The beef version features an Australian ground beef patty, greens, seasoned rice, sliced beefsteak tomatoes and barbecue sauce to seal the deal.

Both wraps come in at 470 and 460 calories, respectively, and cost $99 NT ($3.32 US). This is one of the few times I wish I lived in a different country — it’s awesome seeing Mickey D’s bring in some local ingredients.

You can view the new McWraps commercial below:

6 Year Old Caught Driving On His Way To Get Chinese Food

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What did you do when you were a little kid? Did you play on the swing set? Play with Pokémon cards? Maybe watch TV? Did you ever get the chance to drive a car — by yourself? I’m going to go ahead and say no.

Police were alerted by other drivers Saturday morning by what looked to be a 6 year old child driving a car. When police finally arrived on the scene, the car was boxed in by two drivers and another driver took the keys out of the ignition of the car the boy was driving.

While the boy’s name wasn’t reported, he told officers that he took the keys off of the counter and drove the car to grab some Chinese food. Guess he was fed up waiting for cereal and took matters into his own hands.

According to police he had never driven a vehicle before nor sat on his dad’s lap to practice steering. During his takeout attempt the boy hit a “no left turn” sign and managed to rack up some cosmetic damage. It was soon after that the police called the boy’s father to come pick him up.

The father, according to Sheriff Engster, wasn’t even aware that his son was gone because he was sleeping the entire time. This kid was determined to get his late night grub on.

We suppose a quick trip to Panda Express for some Orange Chicken is the best way to start your day, even if you don’t have your front teeth to eat it.

Walmart Display Claims Soda is ‘Wholesome. Healthy. Delicious.’

walmart

Listen, we’ve all given Walmart a bad rap and hey, maybe this was just an honest mistake. At least, we hope it was, because the last time we checked soda was no where near “Wholesome” or “Healthy.” Although, we’ll agree that the fizzy stuff is rather “Delicious.”

Kudos to Consumerist reader Kathy for snapping the pic featuring seemingly misplaced 2-liter bottles of Sprite and Coca-Cola. We’re guessing the signs claiming to be  “Wholesome. Healthy. Delicious.” and “Easy convenient meals” were meant for something like fresh sandwiches and salads. Then again . . . it is Walmart we’re talking about and that McDonald’s in the background isn’t really helping its case. Just sayin’.

walmart-display

Sigh. The day that Sprite or Coca-Cola become replacements for a nice pre-packaged chicken from the store deli, I’ll just head over to the bakery for some yesterday, today, tomorrow expiring glazed donuts.

That ‘Bottom-Of-The-Cereal-Bowl’ Taste is Now Packaged as an Actual Drink

cow-wow

Ever wake up in the morning and make yourself a bowl of cereal? Ever leave that bowl of cereal for a few minutes because you get caught up in your morning routine? Ever come back to that same cereal and watch its inevitable disintegration towards the bottom of your bowl? Now imagine that taste and put it in a carton for sale

The folks at Cow Wow, based in Los Angeles, dreamed up this ingenious idea. Cow Wow Cereal Milk  comes in two flavors, Chocolate Chip Cathy and Fruity Trudy, and will be releasing two more, Cinny Minny and Marsha Mallow, later this year.

Initially locked to Southern California supermarkets, this national roll-out means that you will be able to get this “utterly” (see what I did there) milky concoction for your morning meal. It’s available in 8-ounce single packs and packs between 170-175 calories depending on the flavor of your choice.

Mmmm, can’t wait ’til they release a Frosted Flakes-flavored version. We’re keeping our fingers crossed, Cow Wow.

Elderly Woman Robs Bank with A Can of Spaghetti Sauce

spaghetti-can

Old ladies are usually sweet, make you cookies, and drive at the blazing speed of 10 mph. Turns out, they also stop by their local bank for cash withdrawals . . . with cans of spaghetti sauce in tow.

This was the scene that played out in Michigan according to Detroit Free Press. This past Saturday morning, a woman in her 60’s entered a bank, walked up to the teller and placed a cloth bag on the counter, demanding money. She claimed there was a bomb within the cloth bag and that she would blow the bank to smithereens if her demands weren’t met. Turns out that hidden item in the bag was just spaghetti sauce — Ragu “It’s In There”

Police had this to say about the bank boost:

“It did look like there was a hard object in there. But it was folded over so you couldn’t see what was inside. It turned out that it was a couple of cans of spaghetti sauce inside the bag”

Just when you thought crime was for the vernal and vivacious, suddenly you are proven wrong. Police don’t know where she currently is or how much dough she fled the scene with but one thing is clear: Be suspicious of anyone toting cans of spaghetti sauce in their purse.

New Pringles Stix Trade the Stackable Crisps for your Snackable Fix

pringles-stix

Pringles, known for their light and airy crisps in their iconic cylindrical canister, are branching out into new territory. Yes, the same people behind holiday-themed chips are introducing flavored sticks.

Known as Pringles Stix, these snack time targeted treats look to turn any break into a delicious endeavor. With three flavors (Cheese, Pizza, and Butter Honey) to start the party, there is no end to the possible flavor combinations.

I’ve had Pringles Stix here in the Las Vegas area several years ago so this is presumably a release on a more national scale, meaning that you’re only a store trip away from trying a very addictive treat. You can purchase them in 8-ounce boxes that contain 8 packages. If that isn’t enough to tide your appetite, there’s a 70-count resealable bag available for your consumption.
