Man, what a busy week.
Ben and Jerry, the founders of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream were arrested for protesting at the US Capitol earlier this week. KFC posted a pretty NSFW ad on their Twitter and some folks got pretty steamed.
A popular brand of alcoholic root beer decides it’s gonna get even more alcoholic. Awesome. Remember that cooler Kickstarter campaign that was supposed to be the greatest tailgate accessory ever? Turns out it kinda sucks. A pizza box from Cybertron transforms into a pipe and someone created weed ramen. Because 4/20 was a couple days ago.
This was our week in food news, which you can find out more about in episode 17 of the Katchup.
Let’s also take a moment to remember Doris Roberts, Prince and Chyna. Rest in peace, guys.
OK, on to the KATCHUP!

Cooler, Not So Cool
In July 2014, we wrote about the Coolest Cooler, a state-of-the-art cooler that would become the second most funded thing on Kickstarter, generating more than $13 million in one month. Nearly two years later, the company is asking backers to fork up another $97 in order to get their coolers “expedited,” and people think that’s pretty uncool. Read more.

For the stoner who crushes a large pizza and is too lazy to get up off the couch to find their favorite pipe afterward — now there’s an app for that. Read more.
