Lotteria Releases Chocolate and Honey Mustard Burger for Valentine’s Day

chocoburger

For pairing with their chocolate dipping sauce fries, Japanese fast food chain Lotteria is launching the totally eyebrow-raising but kinda-sorta incredible-sounding “Chocolate and Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken” burger, starting February 6.

According to the press release, the burger features a grilled chicken thigh patty, daubed with Lotte-Ghana milk chocolate sauce and spicy French and grain mustard with honey. We’re hoping it tastes something like a sweeter mole poblano, though we wouldn’t be totally mad at a burger that just tastes like chocolate. ‘Tis the season, after all.

This Popsicle Coffin Puts the ‘Fun’ Back in ‘Funeral’

Comedian Nick Swardson has a funny bit where he says that funerals should be a good time since they’re technically your last party on earth, ever. Multimedia artist Olaf Breuning must agree with him since he designed these eccentric coffins and commissioned Ghanaian casket makers to create them (kooky corpse boxes are the norm in Ghana).

The caskets are shaped like a popsicle, a snowman and a chocolate bar, and are made even weirder with their anthropomorphic features. Crazed cartoon faces and enthusiastic thumbs ups (handles for the pallbearers?) seem to say,”Yeah dude, lower me into the ground! Let’s get this party started!”

Famous for his infantile sculptures, playful installations and laconic lyricism, Breuning’s art is absurdist and humorous, like the art equivalent of Arrested Development. Art with a perpetual punchline, you could say. And what’s a better punchline to the punchline of all punchlines — death — than spending eternity in a giant melting popsicle?

Pic of the Day: SHITTO Pepper Sauce

shitto-pepper-sauce

Apparently this is a favorite sauce in Ghana, Africa. The word Shito is the word for pepper in Ghanaian native languages, this particular spicy pepper sauce seems to be a staple in their cuisine. While the sauce’s blend of spices and fish differs depending on the region it’s coming from, it primarily consists of fish oil/vegetable oil, ginger, dried fish/crustaceans, tomatoes, garlic and other spices.
