Express Your Funyuns Fandom With Their New Pocket Tee

If you’re invested in fashion, you’ve probably heard the phrase “Clothes are a reflection of your personality.” I often think about this as I pick my clothes out for the day. As I drearily thrift through my closet, wondering where all my clothes are (in the laundry hamper), I can’t help but ponder: What piece of fabric properly mirrors my mood? Am I feeling like a busy pattern? Do I want to wear shorts? Should I check the weather? Wait, it’s raining? And, most importantly: how the hell do I properly pronounce my love of Funyuns to the world? 

The apparent answer arrived to the Foodbeast office recently.

I watched my editor, Reach Guinto, slice open a box and pull out a smaller box emblazoned with the Funyuns logo. Inside sat three bags of Funyuns and enough packing paper to drown in, just in case the two layers of boxes weren’t enough to keep those chips safe. Upon investigating, we saw that one of the bags, the bigger one, lay open, so we picked that one to dig into first.

Inside sat not a salty snack, but more packing paper. Thankfully, one thing is for sure, Funyuns knows how to keep a package safe. But more importantly, under that, finally unfortified, sat the crown jewel: a Funyuns pocket tee. But not just any pocket tee.

It’s bright yellow, with a Funyuns logo front and center, and a clever nutrition facts-based tag. The pièce de résistance of it, though, is the Funyuns bag-sized pocket sitting front and center. 

At long last, me and every other hot Funyuns fanatic can keep a fresh bag on deck for when necessity calls. This is the only time we’ll be united, except when we’re all in the hospital together for destroying our stomach linings. Who knew a t-shirt could be so unifying!

For now, the shirts are only available if you keep your eyes peeled on their Twitter as they’ll be giving some away in the coming days.

HUF Skateboarding’s Latest Collection Is An Exclusive Burger Tribute To Popeye

Many fondly remember Popeye the Sailor cartoon by the hero’s favorite snack to get brolic on his foes — spinach. In an unlikely tribute to the sailor with a penchant for greens, HUF recently dropped a capsule collection centered around him and other characters of the cartoon. Additionally, the collection was treated to an exclusive burger from Los Angeles burger haven, The Golden State, to help promote it.

Dubbed ‘The Wimpy Burger’ in honor of Wimpy, the burger-mooching character, it’s delectably built with grilled onions, bacon bits, and creamed spinach as a nod to Popeye, all on top of a brioche bun. Peep the juicy deets above to understand the full magnitude of just how munch-worthy this burger is and then go to both  Los Angeles-area locations of The Golden State and thank me later.

As for the clothing collection, expect the same polished street-inspired skate apparel from HUF, as it’s highlighted by socks, a beanie, button-up shirt, and hoodie, amongst others, all emblazoned with Popeye iconography and characters such as Olive Oil and Wimpy. Check out some images of the collection below and consider these jawnz as your spinach to flex on folks.

New #Heineken100 Clothing Collection Links With Influential Streetwear Shop

As the synergetic relationship between food and fashion (namely streetwear) becomes even more pronounced, so do the significant projects that come to fruition as a result. An excellent example of such would be Heineken beer’s #Heineken100 program. Now in it’s ninth year, the #Heineken100 program has been responsible for some of the coolest collaborations between the unlikely industries. This time around, Heineken extends its reach to one of the most influential clothing boutiques in the world, UNION, to create the “Green Collar” collection.

Taking heavy cues from workwear, the elevated interpretations of the “Green Collar” collection meet at the intersection of function and style. The results are six pieces, including a tiger camo chore coat, hoodie with dramatic, zippered side vents, and a pair of limited-edition Keds sneakers.

The “Green Collar” collection debuted this past Saturday, December, 1st, at UNION’s flagship location in Los Angeles, and their Tokyo, Japan location. Online launch is today, however, so for those that missed out at the physical store locations should make sure to cop quickly.

For a full rundown and pictures of the “Green Collar” collection, see below:

  • UNION x #HEINEKEN100 CHORE COAT $380.00: Made with a contemporary boxy and oversized fit to help balance the vintage wash and fabric, this chore coat provides a fresh take on the typical long fit style of the past (Available in two colorways & a Tokyo exclusive)
  • UNION x #HEINEKEN100 CHINO PANT $280.00With pants being either too baggy or slim, this Chino Pant is the “Goldie Locks Effect,” something just right with its very subtle carrot fit (Available in two colorways & a Tokyo exclusive)
  • UNION x #HEINEKEN100 PULLOVER HOODED SWEATSHIRT $280.00Made with beautiful reverse weave fabric from Japan, this sweatshirt has the front pocket removed for a cleaner look in addition to a single zip down on one side to add flair (Available in three colorways).
  • UNION x #HEINEKEN100 T-SHIRT $55.00Made with 100% cotton and fitting true to size, this classic staple features Heineken’s iconic leaf and hops arrangement stylized as the UNION logo, with the play-on-words “Got Hops” as the slogan, helping tie together the entire capsule collection (Available in two colorways).
  • UNION x #HEINEKEN100 HAT $60.00Versatile and classic, this skate hat provides the finishing touch to any casual fit (Available in two colorways).
  • #HEINEKEN100 PRO-KED SNEAKERS $90.00Made from durable 12.5 oz canvas with contrast stitching and recently remastered for an enhanced fit, the Royal Hi has a molded footbed with open cell foam for breathability finished with a classic gum vulcanized white outsole and Heineken’s iconic Green for the heel hit.

The Halal Guys Drop A Shoe Collab Based On Their Popular Sauces

Sneakerheads and hardcore The Halal Guys fans alike will be fighting to get their hands on pairs of the street food icon’s newest collab.

A joint project between Clarks, NYC boutique Extra Butter, and The Halal Guys, the above shoes bring as much heat as a packet of the chain’s legendary red sauce. It’s fitting, then, that the two colorways for the shoes are based on the spicy and white sauces that grace the platters of meat and rice the New York legend is heralded for.

These “Halalabees” were debuted by Extra Butter at ComplexCon 2018 and commemorate the 30-year history of the street cart classic. Extra Butter designed them with premium suede uppers, classic crepe outsoles, a custom branded leather hangtag and veg-tan leather insoles.

If you want to cop the “Halalabees,” Extra Butter will debut them in their East Manhattan flagship store starting on November 9th, but those not in the area will be able to score them via online. Only 200 pairs of each colorway are available, though, making these $180 kicks a hyper-limited drop that you’ll want to snag faster than an Uncle Paulie’s hat.

9 Bizarre Instances Where Food Turned Into Fashion

Dior, Balenciaga, Oscar de la Renta, Oscar Meyer… one of these Oscars is not like the other. Or are they? While the average person might think food belongs on a plate or in our stomachs, others find food fashionable. Yes, in the wear-it-on-your-body kind of way. If you think this is just a stunt that Lady Gaga can pull off, you’ll be shocked by how many times people turned perfectly good food into perfectly bizarre items of clothing. Check out these nine strange instances where food turned into fashion.

Dorito Dress

And you thought you loved Doritos. This dress is made of real Doritos chips, is edible, and looks great on olive skin tones. You have to imagine, though, if you get that orange dust on your fingers just from reaching into a Doritos bag, this cannot be a pretty sight after the fact.


Kombucha Jacket

If you’ve never heard of kombucha before, it’s a highly fermented tea which is supposed to have amazing health properties. The tea leaf also has some tremendous fashion properties, too! Kombucha tea leaves can be made into a variety of eco-friendly clothing. Their take on motorcycle jackets are the most popular item manufactured. Shout out to all the eco-conscious bikers out there!


Meat Dress

We all remember this, right? Lady Gaga showed up to the MTV Music Video Awards in 2010 wearing a meat dress. That’s not a slang for anything. She wore an actual dress entirely made up meat — right down to the little flat iron cut she wore as a hat. Fierce.


Chocolate Gown

Every year, the Salon du Chocolat in Paris, France brings together fashion designers and chocolatiers to dress the models for their annual chocolate runway show. That means that the dresses are made of chocolate. I wouldn’t dare break a sweat in this dress. Yikes. It would be like Nesquik up in there.


Vegetable Outfit

In Mulhouse, France there is a celebration every year called Folie’Flore. The festival features displays with different foods being used in creative ways — including clothing like this all veggie ensemble. This getup is on a mannequin, but I have to wonder if someone actually ever wore this gown and accessories.


Pasta Dress

An Italian designer has on display a dress made of different varieties of pasta. While I can’t imagine this is comfortable, I am a huge fan of all thing carbohydrates myself (especially pasta), so this designer dress is a dream come true.


Skittles Dress

She would make Lady Gaga so proud. To compete (and then go on to win) in a “Sweet Like Beauty” contest, this woman made a dress entirely comprised of Skittles. Four thousand Skittles were used to make the outfit and, surprisingly, they were all still intact for her red carpet premiere of the dress. If that were me, there would be some embarrassing holes in this dress.


Bread Skirt

A bakery in Port Townsend, Washington made a few fun little pieces… entirely made of bread. With this bread skirt also came a croissant dough shawl, because it would be a huge fashion don’t to just wear the bread skirt. Obviously.


Microgreen Scarf

More of a clothing accessory than an actual clothing piece, but it’s fun to see all of the different designs for scarves and other accessories that Hamama Greens have come up with for their new microgreen growing kits. They actually do look pretty fashionable – and pretty tasty, too.
