French Fry Fingernails Are the New Nail Swag

fry nail art

Forget fancily decorated fingernails holding burgers. The next hot trend? Combining the two (previously very, very distinct) realms with fry fingers!

We’re guessing the “fries” here are what appear to be carefully painted and placed strips of tape. As for the box — the choices are endless. From the Golden Arches to a cheesin’ star to a red-headed, freckly little girl, your nails are an endless canvas to display your personal tastes.

Now if these mini fries were edible, that would take this look to the next level. You’d have the world eating from your fingertips, literally.

Here’s How to Make Maple Bacon Monkey Bread

maple bacon monkey bread

This recipe for Maple Bacon Monkey Bread is the evidence you need to prove all the naysayers wrong: Bacon was made for sweet desserts. (Now I understand why I drown my bacon strips in syrup at breakfast.)

This six-ingredient recipe uses a tiny dash of cayenne pepper to kick up the savory quality and stave off the sugar coma. Maybe. You’ll probably end up KO’d on the couch either way.

__________

Maple Bacon Monkey Bread

Yields: 8
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 2 Tbsp. real maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 6 slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled
  • 2 cans (8 oz. each) Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 2 cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations refrigerated seamless dough sheet

Directions

1) Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 8×4-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

2) In medium microwavable bowl, microwave butter and syrup uncovered on High 30 to 45 seconds or until hot. Stir in brown sugar and red pepper until dissolved. Stir in bacon. Evenly spoon mixture into pan.

3) Unroll each can of dough into 1 large rectangle; if using crescent roll dough, press perforations to seal. Cut each rectangle into 8 rows by 3 rows, to make 24 pieces per rectangle (48 pieces of dough total). Roll each piece of dough into a ball. Arrange balls over butter mixture in pan.

4) Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan 5 minutes. Place heatproof serving plate over pan; carefully turn plate and pan over. Remove pan. Serve warm.

Fast Food Purse Frees Up One Hand for Activities

to-go packaging

Fast food is not as easy as it sounds. One of the worst parts is having to carry a rolled-up, handle-less, greasy paper bag in one hand and a giant, slippery cup of soda in the other. You’re completely incapacitated until you reach your destination, and by then you’ve only sucked down half your drink, while the food gets colder every second.

No more! A new to-go packaging design could revolutionize (we’re serious, guys) the very system we rely on for quick, cheap eats. Simply slide your fries and hamburger into designated slots in this cardboard purse, slip the cup into the hole at the bottom, fold and grab by the handles and get on with your life.

But, uh, can I Super-Size that?

Old Spice Guy Says ‘You Don’t Know What Taste Is’ in Israeli Beer Ad

isaiah mustafa maccabee beer

Look at your man, now back to me…

Isaiah Mustafa has stepped off his horse and put on a shirt, but the Old Spice Man Your Man Could Smell Like is still as dapper as ever in this new TV commercial for Israel’s Maccabee Beer. He appears to be sitting in the Oval Office employing his epic voice in a worldwide presidential address to the masses of people who “don’t know what taste is” and have no real reason for disliking Maccabee because they don’t know what “x over the square root of 31 tastes like.”

But don’t let this one go viral, Israel. We want him back. These hunky musical-soap commercials are just . . . creepy.

Drunk Hot Dog Has Shrimp Salad, Mashed Potatoes & Fried Onions

Thor-Swedish-hot-dog-feature
The Swedes take surf ‘n’ turf to the next level with this Tunnbrödsrulle — a sandwich of flatbread, a few hot dogs, shrimp salad, roasted or fried onions, mashed potatoes, Swedish spices and, occasionally, some iceberg and tomato to round out the food pyramid. It’s apparently a popular drunchie for people stumbling home from the bars.

Thor Swedish hot dog

This particular behemoth comes from a food truck called SwedeDISH (clever!) in Orlando, Florida, and is named the Thor Viking Dog, likely because it’s for when you’re hammered.

Insane Bloody Mary Topped with Popcorn, Nachos, Burgers & Obligatory Bacon

bloody-mary-feature
We didn’t think it was possible, but this Bloody Mary may be more insane than this previous behemoth.

This $5 drink-turned-smorgasbord hails from O’Davey’s Pub, a restaurant in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin that unleashes a new food-stuffed cocktail on the first Sunday of every month.

This edition — piled high with cheese curds (duh, it’s Wisconsin), popcorn, nachos, pickles, sausages, soft pretzels, bacon and burgers — was created in honor of Opening Day for the Milwaukee Brewers. It’s available for drinking (eating?) after 11:30 a.m. while supplies last.

If you don’t live in Wisconsin, you likely just missed the Cinco de Mayo version. But, hey, June is full of opportunities. Red, white and blue foods for Flag Day? Beef jerky bourbon with a fishing pole as garnish for Fathers Day? The possibilities are endless and a little scary.

Starbucks Offers Half-Off Frappuccino Happy Hour

starbucks-happy-hour

The time has come again for you to load up on icy, sugary goodness for half the price! Up until May 12, Starbucks invites you to come in between 3 pm and 5 pm to swoop up your favorite frappuccino at half-off.

Alongside this promotion, Starbucks launches the new Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino.

We love the “Happy Hour” trend happening among major fast food chains (here’s looking at you, Taco Bell). We especially dig it when we can get mo’ caffeine in us at the half the price. We just have one burning question, Starbucks: What the hell is a “Sip Face“?!

Just . . .  no.
