The Foods Stoners Stock Up On For 4/20

Anyone who observes the religious holiday of 4/20 will tell you that you need to stock up on very particular snacks to keep you going through the night.

The April 20 unofficial holiday is a perfect excuse for weed enthusiasts to get high without boundaries, but it is also an excuse to eat whatever the hell you want at the same time.

Everyone has their own strategy. You might make a quick run to Taco Bell and stock up on Doritos Locos Tacos or just walk to 7-Eleven and grab 20 bags of Cheetos. Either way, you know it will hit the spot.

A convenience store delivery service called goPuff hooked us up with some data to let us know what their users have been clamoring for the most on this haziest of days, and while some foods are obvious, others might surprise you.

Check out the snacks below and see if they fall in line with your 4/20 process:

This 4/20-Inspired Burger Features Hot Cheetos Ketchup And A Spoonful of Cookie Dough On The Side

It’s the time of the year when stoners gather to smoke a ton of weed and talk about how high they are for seven hours. April 20 has become a holiday for pot enthusiasts worldwide, and it’s not unusual for restaurants to join in on the festivities.

Hopdoddy Burger Bar is celebrating 4/20 by debuting its “High Roller” cheeseburger. This taco-seasoned burger patty is a pothead’s dream, topped with mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, bacon ranch-seasoned fries, and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos ketchup.

That’s right, the ketchup is infused with Hot Cheetos for a little extra kick with each bite. And if you want a nice little dessert, they finish off this order with a spoonful of cookie dough on the side.

We went down to our local Hopdoddy in Tustin, California, to give this beast a try. There’s a lot going on in there, but it’s a gift to your tastebuds, and we can imagine it being a hit on 4/20.

Unfortunately, this bad boy will only be available on April 20, so if you’re near one of Hopdoddy’s locations, you’re going to have to act quickly.

Ramsay And Bourdain Are Not Your Food Saviors [The Katchup Podcast]

We do not need to always look to Gordon Ramsay or Anthony Bourdain to be our eating conscience.

In this week’s episode of The Katchup Podcast, our hosts stumbled upon the “Gourdain Theory,” where millennials always look to the two popular chefs as gods, and see their words to be gospel.

The conversation came up during talk of Taiwan’s decision to ban the consumption of cats and dogs. While arguing whether eating pets is taboo, our hosts Elie Ayrouth and Reach Guinto wondered what Ramsay or Bourdain think about this topic. Upon that thought, they then asked themselves why it matters what those two think. There are countless credible culinary sources, yet we cling on these two for some reason.

Do you agree or disagree on this “Gourdain Theory?”

Another hot topic this week was a North Carolina restaurant’s decision to ban children of age 5 or under. While on the surface, it sounds like a terrifying PR move, their nightly reservations have significantly increased from 50 to a whopping 80 since the ban.

Would you dine somewhere knowing there won’t be any extra distractions from children?

With April 20 around the corner, you’ll probably see tons of cannabis-related recipes that all sound amazing and crazy, but let’s be real, you’re not going to make any of those insane creations.

Instead, we hooked you up with a simple, classic pot brownie a la mode. Making the brownie is super easy, plus we used Halo Top and their low-calorie ice cream so that we eat it a little guilt-free.

Go ahead, try it and thank us on April 21.

Coachella’s also coming up this weekend, and we discuss the growing food culture at the festival. There are some dos and don’ts involved with eating in a dessert, like, you probably don’t want to be chowing on a gooey raclette while fighting a sandstorm.

Chipotle Tweeted About Sex And Weed In The Corniest Way Possible

With lawsuits and e. Coli outbreaks ruining Chipotle’s mood over the last year, at least their social media team is still given room to have a good time.

Chipotle Tweeted out a question Tuesday, asking its fans, “How many burritos?” in a poll question. The two options were 69, or 420. The 69, of course refers to the sexual act, while 420 refers to the marijuana-based holiday observed by, well, anyone who smokes.

Clever? Not even a little bit.

Childish? Sure. This makes it look like their interns are 12-year-old stoners who draw that weird, pointy “s” on their notebooks.

But if Chipotle can’t be chill and fun on Twitter, then they’ve admitted defeat, and they’ve taken enough “L’s” lately.

It was an incredibly corny Tweet, but at least no one got food poisoning from it.

An All Nighter Guide To Getting Legally High And Eating Through Denver [WATCH]

all-nighter-denver

The legalization of marijuana in Denver has only bolstered an already eclectic social scene. In addition to their bustling craft breweries, there is now a host of legal dispensaries ready to serve you marijuana you can smoke, eat and even drink. Of course, one of the most glorious parts about a legal dose of marijuana is the damn near criminal level of munchies that immediately takeover your night.

In the latest episode of All Nighter, a new web series that chases me around different cities in the wee hours of the morning, I hop right off the plane, smoke a legal blunt with a bunch of strangers, and embark on the nastiest, sloppiest, most delicious and inebriated food journey I could pack into one night.

The fine reporters at BroBible have already broken down the episode’s hot eateries, while a journalist at The Kind has dug into the episode’s exploration of craft brewers vs. craft marijuana dispensaries. I also use a marijuana friend-finder app which helped me find people to indulge with, drive me around in a limo, and was able to order a pizza straight to the limo.

Denver is a hell of a place:

KFC’s Crazy Handjob Ad And Delicious Weed Ramen [THE KATCHUP]

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!

Alcoholic Root Beer Gets Boozier

Beer isn’t for everyone. In fact, you might be surprised at how many people there are out there that flat out don’t like the taste, despite its crisp drinkability and very wide variety of refreshing flavors.

Damn, now I need a beer. Read more.

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.

This Deli Created Weed-Infused Smoked Salmon

Smoked-Smoked-Salmon-

A Jewish Bagel shop has reimagined the phrase “Smoked Salmon” as they claim to have created the world’s first weed-infused smoked salmon.

Last April, Denver-based Rosenberg Bagels decided they wanted to do something special for 4/20. Since the consumption of cannibis was legal where they were located, the bagel shop and delicatessen decided to combine it with smoked salmon to create something truly worthy of the special day.

Two ounces of marijuana trim was infused with alcohol in order to safely extract THC. After the trim was strained and the alcohol cooked off, the extra was poured over the salmon to soak. The fish was then cured for 72 hours and then smoked.

Because there were so many unknown factors in this specific method of cooking that Rosenberg Bagels couldn’t put a label on, the salmon wasn’t sold in the store.

Rather, it was just made for personal consumption.

7 Silly Things We Just Learned About Taco Bell, Straight from their President

brian-niccol-president-tacobell

Taco Bell’s president, Mr. Brian Niccol, took to Reddit’s popular AMA section late this morning to usher in the launch of the chain’s biggest addition in company history: a breakfast menu.

While Taco Bell breakfast discussions were interesting, it was Niccol’s cheeky responses to questions surrounding things like the bottling of their popular Mountain Dew Baja Blast drinks, and his thoughts on Justin Bieber that will make this AMA a memorable one. We’ve picked the 7 greatest moments and featured them below:

 

1. Brian Niccol’s dream would be to add Beer to the menu

2. This is a poorly made Waffle Taco, and someone may or may not get fired for it:

3. When is Taco Bell breakfast coming to Canada? …as soon as they take Justin Bieber back

4. Sales in Colorado have increased 420% since the legalization of marijuana (har har)

5. Your beloved and illustrious ‘Bell Beefer’ is not coming back to the menu any time soon

6. The President of Taco Bell apparently eats Taco Bell every day, and confirms their meat is ‘beef with wonderful seasonings

7. Apparently, the only thing that sucks about being Taco Bell’s President, is not being their CEO:
