[DOOMSDAY SPECIAL] We Ask The Foodbeast Staff What They’d Eat On the World’s Last Day

Since Doomsday is just around the corner and we’re ravenous 24/7, it was natural for the Foodbeast team to contemplate what our last meals on Earth would be. We think the answer says a lot about a person. In our case, we like our booze, cheese and protein — because when we eat, we also like to party… like there’s no tomorrow. Too soon? #YOLO

 

Elie Ayrouth – Publisher

“The burger from Playground in Downtown Santa Ana, CA. Animal Style fries from In-N-Out. Garbage bag full of Sour Patch Kids.”

 

Rudy Chaney – Product Development Director 

“Costco Pepperoni Pizza and a handle of Popov.”

 

Charisma Madarang – Associate Editor

“An entire plate of sashimi tuna, a Yeti Imperial Stout and a warm chocolate chip cookie.”

 

Dominique Zamora – Staff Writer

“I don’t really care what I eat, but I really, really, really want one of those blue ‘holiday edition’ traffic cone cups from Carsland [at Disney’s California Adventure]. I know it’s just soda inside but I’ve been wanting one forever so if I wasn’t stuck at work today, I’d totally be there hoarding all the ones I could find. They’re too cute.”

 

Marc Kharrat – Foodbeast TV Producer

“The Carbonara Chicken sandwich from Holstein’s in Las Vegas, NV. Chilli Cheese fries from The Hat. A bottle of Special Reserve Jameson whiskey. A jar of Nutella and a handful of bacon-wrapped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.”

 

Aziza-Mistral Sullivan – Contributor

“I was going to say fresh ceviche from an actual Spanish-speaking country. But then I thought if it’s my last meal, calories don’t count. In that case, please see that I am buried in a six-foot deep Pyrex dish of Mark Bittman’s peach cobbler. With extra cobble, please. ”

 

Maziar Azizi – Contributor

“My last meal would be the truffle burger from Umami Burger with McDonalds fries and a few Del Taco strawberry churros for dessert.”

 

Danielle Mooradian – Contributor

“Although not very original, my last meal would be pepperoni and mushroom pizza with extra cheese, and an ice cream sundae for dessert. That’s my big apocalyptic F you to lactose intolerance!”

 

Cristiana Wilcoxon – Contributor

“My last meal would be Annie’s white cheddar mac & cheese with blood orange soda followed by some unbaked sugar cookie dough. Never grow up. ”

 

Brian Yamamoto – Contributor

“A grass-fed 32oz Porterhouse steak served rare accompanied by a glass of 15-year-old rye whiskey served neat so I can go out with some acumen of class and dignity. Followed promptly by a plate of pizza roll snacks with a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie a la mode to go out like a true Foodbeast.”

 

Joey Nargizian – Contributor

“My last meal would have to be a bacon burger with a fried egg. I’ve only made it once, and fell in food love at first bite. On the side I’d have sweet potato fries and sautéed  brussel sprouts. And, obviously, a good beer, or two, to wash it down.”

 

Emily Villanueva – Contributor

“I’m afraid my last supper would be pretty boring — in times of distress (or impending apocalypse) I always go for homey, comfort food that reminds me of my childhood. My mom’s potato salad and garlic spaghetti, my grandma’s cassava cake, my grandpa’s persimmon bread. Basically, my culinary equivalent of a hug.”

 

Isai Rocha – Contributor

“A pastrami sandwich from Katz Deli, a side of hot wings and a tall glass of Coke.

 

Dominique Boubion – Contributor

“Bibimbap. Since I didn’t grow up with Korean food, I will never eat it, nor all of its accompanied side dishes, enough times.”

 

The Glut Life (Zach and Jason) – Recipe Contributor

“For our last meal we’re going to have to go Hannibal Lecter style… C’mon don’t play like you’ve never wondered. Plus if we’re all going to turn into zombies might as well prep the palate. “

JELL-O Offers Pudding Sacrifice in Hopes to Stop Mayan Doomsday [VIDEO]

According to Jell-O, the gods are ending the world because of the Mayan’s boring offerings of root crops. (That has to be offensive to someone, somewhere.)

Jell-O has constructed a plan to offer its pudding snacks to the gods in hopes that it will be enough to prevent this Friday’s predicted apocalypse.

In the commercial, a group of men are shown climbing up what looks to be the Kukulkan Pyramid of Chichen Itza with a box full of Jell-O chocolate pudding snacks to offer the gods of the Maya.

Note: I’m not sure if the gods will appreciate that the Aztec calendar is portrayed in the commercial and not the Mayan calendar at 0:08 seconds.

Surely, if we live to see December, 22, Jell-O will take the credit for it and plan some kind of weird Jell-O party hosted by Bill Cosby.

Will the gods be happy with the sacrifice, or has Jell-O pissed them off even more? I guess we’ll find out.

No #Food on Instagram?! Must Be the Apocalypse

Part genius move by Internet Explorer, part Instagram foodie jab, the above play is all around spot on. So, if you notice a lack of artsy closeups of carne asada fries or Starbucks lattes in Sutro among your stream of Instagram photos — you know what’s coming. We just hope you’ve already stocked up on the last remaining Twinkies and pimped out your Doomsday shelter with reruns of South Park. If Instagram is still running after 12.21.12, you’ll at least be able to show off your prepackaged swag to fellow apocalypse survivors.
