Wanting to show the world the dangers of McDonald’s food, the guy in the video smokes a McDonald’s french fry like a joint. Because logic.
The no doubt copious amounts of oil, sugar, and starch make the potato sliver an easy thing to light. Although, may we suggest a host of healthier options he smoke for next time? Apples, pears, cucumbers (hilarious), pumpkins, etc. Just nothing that gives your lungs love handles. That’s never cute.
The point is, don’t try this at home, kids.
French-trained Japanese cook, Maa Tamagosan, graced the internet with her latest recipe for petite teddy bears hugging an assortment of nuts.
Clutching almonds, walnuts and cashews, the sweet treats resemble Teddy Graham Crackers with a clever twist. Maa rolled out dough sweetened with beet sugar syrup and honey, cut out shapes with a small bear cookie cutter, drew on a face and manipulated their arms around the nut, then baked them for 20 minutes at 300 °F. (Recipe translation via Hey! It’s Mosogourmet)
You can peek the entire recipe on Maa’s blog and if you have a nut allergy, sub in a hard candy that doesn’t melt or fruit instead. If your especially morbid, you can dunk each one in chocolate “tar pits.” Heh.
Before you bite into that creamy, toasted almond butter sandwich — hold up, check the label. Trader Joes, Whole Foods, MaraNatha, and Kroger brands of Almond Butters, in addition to Arrowhead Mills and MaraNatha brands of peanut butter, have been recalled.
According to the FDA, nSpired, the company that creates the nut butters, issued the recalls after they received four reports of illnesses that may be linked to their spreads. The almond and peanut butters were sold in the US, Canada, Dominican Republic, the United Arab Emirates, and Hong Kong.
“Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems,” warns the FDA. So if you’ve suddenly caught a “fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain,” you should probably toss out that jar of nut butter.”

In a campaign to introduce its new dark roast, Canada’s beloved Tim Hortons blacked out the exterior of an entire Montreal location. Everything from the signage outside to light posts to the building itself were murdered-out.
What resulted was an all-black look that attracted curious passerby to “happen upon the store,” only to find that inside it was also pitch black and a guy in night goggles was waiting to serve them coffee. Why? To take “customers’ sense of sight to supercharge their sense of taste.” Although, as FWF points out, we’re a bit disappointed that Drake doesn’t pull up in an all-black Maybach — we have expected it after his not-so-subtle Instagram hint to collab with the chain.
Cheesy. Melty. Meaty. Greasy. Everything about pizza is glorious. From its crispy, buttered crust to that hot layer of mozzarella. Of course, even this global favorite has some things you probably don’t know about it. I suppose its the savory pie’s way of keeping things, er, exciting.
The infographic below offers some curious facts about global pizza consumption. Apparently, if you took all the restaurants around the world, you’d find that 17 percent of them are pizzerias; men who answer the door wearing muscle shirts order pepperoni 3 times more than other pizza. How you interpret the latter is up to you. There’s also a quick breakdown of popular pizza toppings around the world — from sunnyside up egg in Germany to coconut in Costa Rica.
