OREO Will Be Launching New Pokémon OREOs

OREO collabs have a pristine record of not missing. They’re arguably America’s favorite cookie sandwich, so plussing up the whole affair with a smart collaboration is bullseye every time. OREO tapping in with Pokémon is another example in such consistent excellence.

Beginning today, September 8, fans can pre-order the limited edition Pokémon x OREO cookies on OREO.com. The cookies will be available at retailers nationwide starting September 13th, while supplies last.

The Pokémon x OREO cookies pay tribute to some of the most beloved Pokémon with 16 unique cookie embossments featuring iconic Pokémon such as Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle. However, just like in the Pokémon world, some Pokémon x OREO cookies will be harder to find. This also means that this much hyped partnership is OREO’s first-ever cookie rarity scheme. Here’s more details surrounding it:

  • Each pack is filled at random and does not necessarily contain cookies with all 16 embossment designs, meaning every cookie pack is all about discovery and a new chance to find them all.
  • The rarity of the designs embossed on the cookies range from easy to find to hard to find, and the hardest to find (Mew) is featured on an extremely limited amount of the total cookies produced.

The 16 cookie varieties of the Pokémon x OREO collab are:

  • Pikachu
  • Bulbasaur
  • Charmander
  • Squirtle
  • Sandshrew
  • Jigglypuff
  • Lapras
  • Dratini
  • Mew
  • Cyndaquil
  • Sableye
  • Piplup
  • Snivy
  • Pancham
  • Rowlet
  • Grookey

Watch Renowned Seafood Chef Josh Niland Create a Stunning “Porchetta of the Sea”

Josh Niland, the Australian chef renowned for his nose-to-tail approach to seafood, is a master of fish butchery. His restaurant, Saint Peter, is a veritable cathedral to seafood excellence.

Niland’s mastery of seafood and adherence to sustainability has led to numerous accolades and recognition, which is no wonder as to why he was invited as a guest chef in the current season of MasterChef Australia. In a recent episode, he butchered a whole cod, practically making it “disappear,” then recalibrated the fish’s parts into what one contestant described as a “porchetta of the sea,” though Niland dubbed it as a rolled roasted Murray cod.

A fish transmogrified into a never before seen dish like this is something only the likes of a talent like Niland can do, which makes for must see television itself.

Disneyland’s Avengers Campus, With Its WILD Food Creations, Set To Open June 4th

After much anticipation, Disneyland’s hyped-up Avengers Campus will finally be opening inside of the California Adventure theme park on June 4th.

Disneyland itself will be reopening at the end of April, which means early parkgoers will have to wait a few weeks before they can step inside the Marvel-themed section of the park.

Once they do, there will be a variety of fantasy-based food located throughout Avengers Campus, a lot of which has been revealed in previous sneak peeks.

The new food vendors include Pym’s Test Kitchen and Tasting Lab, where you can find foods sized both giant and small (plus plenty of beer and cocktails), Shawarma Palace (a restaurant from the first Avengers movie with plant-based Impossible Shawarma), and Terran Treats (located near the Guardians of the Galaxy ride and is filled with churros and other sweet treats).

One of the biggest companies involved in this futuristic food lineup is Impossible Foods, whose plant-based meat will be found throughout the land in the form of meatballs, the aforementioned shawarma, and more.

It’ll be exciting to see this new part of Disneyland open up, and we can’t wait to see what the food will be like as well.

To get into the park, for now, you have to be a California resident, as well as score an online reservation and have an admissible theme park ticket for the date you want to visit.

Carl’s Jr. Adds Godzilla And King Kong Themed Burgers Internationally

Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s are introducing two massive sandwiches/burgers as a new collab with the film Godzilla Vs. Kong.

Godzilla is getting represented by a triple bacon cheeseburger, with a total of 4 strips of bacon, three slices of cheese, and an entire pound of beef packed into a premium bun with mayo. King Kong’s burger, on the other hand, can be a triple cheeseburger with Santa Fe Sauce, or a double fried chicken sandwich with the same sauce.

The Kong Burger has slightly less meat (10.5 ounces total) compared to the full pound the Godzilla Burger gets. However, Godzilla doesn’t have the flavor of the Santa Fe Sauce adding to its profile.

These items dropped the same day the film did, March 31st, and will be available for a limited time internationally at Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s locations.

Unfortunately, these burgers don’t seem to be available in the United States, but 20 different regions around the world are getting the menu. These include Canada, Latin America, Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, and Mexico (which gets a special black bun on their Kong Burger).

Each region will have the Godzilla Burger available, plus one of the Kong items (Burger or Chicken Sandwich). You’ll have to check locally in your area to see which of the King Kong-themed food items are available.

If You’re Still Searching For A PS5, Wendy’s Might Have The Solution

For those looking to game their way through the pandemic, searching for next-gen consoles like the Xbox Series X and the new PS5 might be a bit of a headache. The two are selling out rapidly, and restocks can’t come fast enough.

Now if you’re one of the countless gamers looking to secure any of the two sought after gaming systems, Wendy’s might be able to help. The next-gen consoles are potential prizes in a new menu collab the fast food chain is doing with a few popular Twitch streamers.

In a move straight out of the McDonald’s playbook, Wendy’s is creating customizable meals from their existing menu based on the orders of prolific names. Rather than top musicians like Travis Scott or J Balvin, however, Wendy’s is working with gamers on Twitch instead for a set of five different orders. These “meals” are as follows:

The TFUE Meal: A 10-piece order of Crispy Chicken Nuggets, a small fries, and a Minute Maid Light Lemonade.

The Myth Meal: A Classic Chicken Sandwich, a small fries, and a Coke.

The itsHafu Meal: A Baconator, a small fries, and a Sprite.

The FLIGHT Meal: A 10-piece order of Spicy Nuggets, a small fries, and Hi-C Fruit Punch.

The xChocoBars Meal: A Big Bacon Classic, a small fries, and a Diet Coke.

All of these meals are exclusively available on UberEats, and come with a “Prize Pass” in each bag. Those passes contain pin codes that can be redeemed on a website to attempt to win gaming hoodies, gift cards, or one of the coveted gaming consoles.

The meals are available on UberEats from December 8th-12th, and you have until December 15th to enter the codes to try to win. Best of luck, and hopefully you’ll not have to attempt to beat everyone else out the next time one of the gaming systems is in stock.
