KFC Pakistan Debuts New Messy Xtreme Sandwich That Has Two Top Buns

KFC Pakistan is getting weird here, friends. Because they’ve got a new sandwich called the Messy Xtreme, which happens to feature two top buns on either pole of it.

The Messy Xtreme is KFC’s first sandwich that features two ‘crown’ buns, and it definitely makes for one oddball visual. Inside, it’s got a Zinger chicken fillet enrobed in the KFC’s spicy signature sauce with onions and tomatoes and benefits from a healthy drip of mayo.

Fans can get the Messy Xtreme at participating KFC locations in Pakistan for a limited time for a price of 495 Pakistani Rupees or about $2.89 US dollars.


Eminem Opens ‘Mom’s Spaghetti’ Restaurant In Detroit

His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy. There’s vomit on his sweater already


Eminem AKA B-Rabbit, has opened up a brick and mortar location of his famous concept based on his hit song Lose Yourself, of course entitled, Mom’s Spaghetti. Located in nowhere else but Detroit, Michigan, the location also has The Trailer, a retail space above Mom’s Spaghetti that honors B-Rabbit’s trailer from the movie 8 Mile. Expect merch, limited edition and dead stock pieces from Eminem’s retail collection, and memorabilia to be sold out of the space, while Mom’s Spaghetti below is slinging spaghetti and meatballs and a “Sghetti Sandwich.”

Don’t worry, the spaghetti won’t make you vomit on your sweater — already.

Oscar Mayer Releases Streetwear Collection Only Sold at Hot Dog Carts and Wienermobile Pop-Up Shops

Oscar Mayer is taking a dip in the streetwear pool by releasing their own refreshed takes on branded gear. Dubbed the Street Meat capsule collection, think of it as an up-to-date look on what Oscar Mayer uniforms would be if given a dose of 2021 cool.

The Street Meat collection features everything from track suits to crewnecks to crossbody bags to socks to bomber jackets to shoelaces to slides and everything in between.

Even though this is Oscar Mayer’s first foray into streetwear, thankfully folks wont have to enter online lotteries or camp out overnight to secure pieces from the collection. Oscar Mayer will be selling the merch at tricked out hot dog carts this week in New York, Los Angeles, and Atlanta:

  • LA (9/29): 7315 Melrose Ave
  • Atlanta (9/30): Atlantic Station (1380 Atlantic Drive)
  • NYC (10/1):  185 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn

If you can’t pull up to the hot dog carts, for the rest of the month six Wienermobiles will double as pop-up shops as they travel across the country and sell the Street Meat collection to fans.

McDonald’s and BoxLunch Launch an Exclusive Collection Of Merchandise

McDonald’s has partnered up with pop culture retailer, BoxLunch, for its first-ever U.S. retail collaboration. The exclusive collection debuts on September 20 at BoxLunch stores and Foodie fashion is the highlight here, covering all the bases from clothing, accessories, and collectibles.

The Golden Arches-themed items include t-shirts, sweatshirts, bags, enamel pins, and beauty products. What’s more, this all goes to a wonderful cause as BoxLunch has pledged to donate a meal to a person in need for every $10 spent in-store or online through their partnership with Feeding America.

As far as this collection goes with BoxLunch — I’m lovin’ it. The graphics trigger fond nostalgia, the bags carry a premium quality to it (pun intended), and the styles don’t stray into the typically cheesy restaurant merch category.

Check below for more detailed shots of the McDonald’s x BoxLunch collaborative collection:

This Mega Cookie Pie Is Stuffed And Begging to Be Devoured

Scrolling through my daily social media content rounds and my thumb was snatched from its natural motion by a treat that all at once had my jaw dropped but made me wish it was back in place just so I could eat it. The culprit was deliciously described as a “GOLDEN OREO. COOKIE BUTTER. STUFFED CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE PIE. I’ll leave it at that.”

Karen of @sweetafternoon, the mastermind behind this diabolical delicacy need not say any more, as the visual of this dessert triplex speaks for itself in volumes.Thankfully this product out of Toronto, Canada ships throughout Canada and the United States.

Now excuse me as I collect my jaw and rearrange it back to functionality.
