Dill Pickle Gummies Exist, Are You Down?

According to East Tasty, each batch of the Dill Pickle Gummies contains actual dill seed and dill weed. Consider me intrigued. Surely this is the perfect gift for the pickle lover in your life. But make sure to act quick and cop here, since this is just a July flavor from East Tasty.

A Pizzeria Inside A Jamaican Restaurant Sells Massive Two Pound Mozzarella Sticks

@thekatcurtis

this was a dairy- I mean – “very” fun experience 🤣 #alphonsos #lightningsticks #cheesepull #mozzarellasticks

♬ original sound – Kat Curtis

“This place has the world’s biggest mozzarella sticks.”

That’s the claim from the TikTok clip above by @thekatkurtis. And after witnessing the cheese pull from it that would make Mister Fantastic jealous, it would be fair to consider such a bold claim.

Further digging revealed that the baton-like mozzarella sticks are actually called Lightning Rods from a pizzeria named Alphonso’s The Original, which interestingly enough, is located inside a Jamaican restaurant by the name of Kings & Queens Jamaican Kitchen in West Allis, Wisconsin.

According to Milwaukee Record, the gargantuan cheese sticks measure at almost one whole foot and weight as much as two pounds. Wow.

Since the TikTok clip from Kat Kurtis went viral, the demand for the Lightning Rods have skyrocketed, prompting Alphonso’s to announce on their Facebook page regularly that they’ve sold out for the day. So if you’re really up for taking down the largest mozzarella stick you’ll ever see, act fast to snag some of those cheesy double grippers.

Imagine The Crunch On This New TRIPLE Down From KFC Singapore

KFC’s Double Down, which features two fried chicken pieces serving as the bun to a sandwich, lives on in fast food lore as one of the most indulgent creations to ever grace our caloric intake. Though it’s been a long hot minute since its graced KFC locations in America, KFC Singapore decided to revive the legend in a big way by making it a triple.

The new KFC Cheesy Zinger Triple Down is a trifecta of crispy chicken and levels and is supported by a savory cast of turkey bacon, American cheese, and cheese sauce. According to Brand Eating, the Cheesy Zinger Triple Down only appeared on the KFC Singapore menu for about a week, though, so it looks like this crazy fried chicken offering will now go forth in infamy as a rare boss stage of fried chicken sandwiches.
