Bacon Lava Cakes Exist, Here’s How To Get One For Free

Bacon lover’s rejoice! Treat yourself one last time before committing to that New Year’s Resolution, again. Forget scarfing down a sheet of bacon on National Bacon Day, Slater’s 50/50 is changing the game. They are giving away decadent bacon lava cakes to every person that downloads their app on or before Sunday, December 30th. The best part is you don’t even have to buy anything!

There’s no better way to ring in National Bacon Day than with a molten dark chocolate cake served with a thick slice of salted caramel smoked bacon. Slater’s went the extra mile by adding bacon caramel sprinkled on top along with a dark chocolate drizzle. Candied pecans are sure to add a satisfying crunch and the sweet coolness of vanilla ice cream will compliment the warm, gooey chocolate cake. We never knew this could be a thing.

It’s rare when free really means free and you won’t want to miss this opportunity. Just show the app in-store at any Slater’s 50/50 in California, Nevada, or Texas and you will be rewarded.


Sushi Hamburgers Are A Real Thing And It’s Beautiful


Foodies are going mad for a new hybrid dish: sushi hamburgers.

The creation calls for rice shaped into buns instead of bread that is then used to sandwich ingredients you’d typically expect to find at your local sushi restaurant.



It was a picture of a sushi burger posted to Instagram by food blogger So Beautifully Raw that caught the attention of users and popularized the dish among netizens.

Her picture featured a vegan sushi burger that was made up of teriyaki chicken actually made from jackfruit, avocado, pickled ginger, vegan mayo and red cabbage.

She noted in its caption: “Use a fork or chopsticks to eat it! This burger is just for fun!”


Other pictures shared by Instagram users show sushi burgers made with a variety of ingredients such as salmon, tuna, chicken katsu, seaweed, tempura shrimp and wasabi.

Chocolate Instant Noodles Are Unnecessarily Real

Chocolate-Instant-NoodlesWe once wrote about throwing pudding (not so great) into noodles as a sweet upgrade, but we never thought they’d make a dessert variation of instant noodles. For good reason, right?

Called dessert noodles, the Luxurious Chocolate flavor of Pot Noodle features a creamy chocolate sauce, topped with chunks of all-butter fudge, milk chocolate chips and maple-covered pecan nuts. Sounds…delicious. Because of National Chocolate Day, UK-based chocolatier Paul A. Young helped Pot Noodle come up with this lavish flavor of instant noodles.

I mean, if you’re broke and hungry, you might as well give it a shot. Though we imagine this probably won’t sit too well in most stomachs.

We’ll stick to our chocolate-covered bacon, thank you very much.

This Mac and Cheese Cheesecake is Everything we Could Ever Dream of


We’ve seen quite a few fusion creations this year from the cronut to the ramen burger, one would think it couldn’t get much better. Oh, but it has. Dan Whalen, owner of The Food in my Beard and author of Stuffed: The Ultimate Comfort Food Cookbook: Taking Your Favorite Foods and Stuffing Them to Make New, Different and Delicious Meals, has concocted something out of our wildest dreams, a Mac and Cheese Cheesecake.

The dish is put together and baked up in a springform pan similar to a cheesecake but is made up of typical macaroni and cheese fixin’s. Dan swapped out graham cracker crumbs in favor of breadcrumbs for the dish’s crust. The cheese sauce made up of creamy ricotta and cream cheese with the addition of cheddar to add some bite. Basil and canned tomatoes tossed with the elbow macaroni helps to bring some additional flavor profiles to the mac and cheese party but to be honest I’m still too distracted by the cheese sauce to notice such things.


The final product looks almost like a quiche but slicing into it will reveal that baked mac and cheese goodness. Look at those noodles all nestled together in a creamy cheesy cake. Dan has certainly come up with a new and unique way to nom on everyone’s favorite comfort food.

Yup, this is now officially on my to-do list.

Bacon Body Wash is the Closest Thing We’ll Get to Bacon Showers


Let’s be honest, bacon lovers. How many of you out there have ever wondered what it would feel like to shower in bacon glory? The feeling of pork grease on your skin as you lather, rinse and repeat.

While that sounds incredible impractical, one can dream.

Well, thanks to this Bacon-Scented Body Wash, we just got that much closer to making that dream a reality. While it’s not as delicious as showering in bona fide bacon, it will leave you smelling like you did. Imagine bringing it to the gym after a good workout and walking past all the people on treadmills, letting them get a good whiff.

Although I feel like I don’t need to mention this, I probably should: Do not eat the soap. You should never eat soap, no matter how delicious it smells.
