Origami Towel Folds Into the Shape of a Goosepimply Chicken


For those days when you can’t decide whether you want to dry your dishes or fold some origami, the creative masterminds at Alt Group have devised a solution: a tea towel that can be folded into the shape of (wait for it . . . . . .) a raw chicken.

Taxi shared the creation, which comes printed with intricate origami-like folding instructions. The cotton towel (pale pink in color, completing the look of a goosepimply, bald bird body) was designed specifically for a Fisher and Paykel sales conference, so it’s not available for purchase. But origami nerds and extreme chicken fans take heart—with some relatively simple instructions, any towel can be folded into the shape of a chicken.

In the long line of awesomely useless kitchen accessories, the raw chicken tea towel is just one more thing you didn’t know you needed. You’re welcome.

S’more Strawberries are Stuffed & Coated with Dark Chocolate Ganache


In the grand American tradition of taking a natural food and cramming it full of sweet, heavenly deliciousness, I give you the s’more-stuffed strawberry.

This creation comes from evil recipe genius Jasmine Fine . . . because why waste your time on a pedestrian pie or trifle when you can literally have a strawberry s’more in your mouth? The majestic strawberry — over-sized and lusciously ripe — is stuffed, crammed, and coated with dark chocolate ganache, buttered graham cracker crumbs, and whipped marshmallow cream. Did we mention that all of the ingredients are homemade? There’s even a gluten-free option.

Fine admits that her sweet s’more-berry spectacle is “atrociously delicious” and kicks most other summer desserts’ asses. Survey says: yep, pretty much.

It’s official — the summer food gods love us and want us to be happy.

How to Make an Instant-Coca Cola Slushie


Soda traditionally comes in two states: liquid and FML-I-forgot-it-in-the-freezer solid.

But self-proclaimed King of Random Grant Thompson has turned conventional cola wisdom on its ear with a new discovery — the self-freezing soda. It’s exactly what it sounds like, a trick that allows you to turn any bottle of pop into an instant slushie. Not quite liquid, not quite solid, now you can literally have your cola and chew it too.

Calling this a trick may be overstating matters, since I’m pretty sure this has been invented by about a million other people who’ve accidentally left their Cokes or Dr. Peppers in the freezer too long. And instant is a bit of a misnomer, considering you need three-plus hours of freezer time to get Thompson’s promised “light and fluffy delicious carbonated ice.” (Sorry!) But if you have an intrepid spirit, an afternoon to kill, and no 7-Eleven nearby, learning how to slushify your Coke is a worthy experiment — and cheaper than our other fave new soda-consumption gadget.

Did it work for you? Once the brain freeze fades, let us know.
