How To Make Taco Bell’s ENTIRE Menu Right At Home


Have you ever hit that point where you’re craving Taco Bell flavors so bad, but you just don’t want to leave the house? We’ve all been there. If only we knew how to satiate our Taco Bell cravings at home.

Brothers Green Eats, known for making creative recipes, decided to finally make a video showing viewers how to make Taco Bell’s entire menu from the home office.

Menu items include: Taco Bell’s ground beef (seasoning and all), refried beans, fire sauce, nachos cheese sauce, hard and soft shell tacos, Crunch Wrap Supremes, Double Decker Tacos, Steak Quesadillas and the Mexican Pizza.

Sitting through this video, we’re pretty pumped to try making some Taco Bell at home. Though chances are we’ll probably just hit the drive through on our way to the grocery store getting ingredients.


Man Discovers Exactly Why You Should Never Try To Make Sushi At Home


One Canadian man learned the hard way that making sushi is best left to the master chefs at restaurants after his severe abdominal pains revealed a horrifying scene taking place in his stomach.

A recently published medical case titled “An unusual case of abdominal pain” tells of an unidentified 50-year-old man from Alberta who was admitted to the hospital in August 2014 with severe abdominal pain and vomiting.

The man had attempted to make sushi for himself by buying raw salmon from his nearby grocery store only hours before.

An x-ray at the hospital revealed an anomaly in his stomach, so doctors guided a camera down his esophagus to look inside his stomach.


Doctors discovered that the man’s pain was due to rare parasitic anisakis worms trying to borrow through his stomach lining — had they succeeded, the man would have suffered from long-term complications. The worms had to be surgically removed.

While some stores legitimately sell “sashimi grade” salmon, most selections at typical grocery stores are not fresh enough to eat raw.

It is recommended that you have sushi prepared by a professional chef at a restaurant or, if possible, to “freeze the fish for seven days at −20 C (-4 F) or at a lower temperature for a shorter period of time (less than −20 C for four days).”

If you aren’t sure how fresh that fish at the store is, it’s probably best you leave it to the professionals — after all, unlike a sushi chef, you probably didn’t spend 10 years to master the art of sushi.

Cinnabon-Scented Air Freshener is Unfortunately Not Edible


Are you frantically spraying the bathroom with some foul “lavender” scent that really smells like aged cough syrup? Well, Cinnabon hopes to offer a more pleasant experience when it comes to covering up your home’s au naturel odors.

In addition to Cinnabon vodka and fast food donut holes, the brand expands with a new Cinnabon-scented automatic air spray. In collaboration with Air Wick, the brand-specific spray attempts to bring home the scent of “one-of-a-kind cinnamon and cream cheese frosting that make Cinnabon cinnamon rolls so unforgettable.”

However (minor upset), word has it that while the spray does have a light cinnamon scent, it’s in no way close to the deep, addicting aroma of freshly baked Cinnabon rolls. Still better than molding cough syrup.


Garlic (shaped) Lamps: Good for Dining Rooms, Bad for Vampires

Unless you’re a Cullen, in which case these hanging lamps are just absurd and stylish enough to fit in with you and yours, Spider Monkey.

For the rest of us, it’s worth noting this super modern veggie lamp, designed by Anton Naselevets (who has more pictures of his work on his site), is actually functional as a pendant lamp. The garlic shape has a hole at the bottom while also being all…garlic head-shaped, meaning it functions as both flashlight and lantern, so to speak.

Kind of makes you wonder whether the shape came first, and then Anton was all, “OMG I’VE CREATED GARLIC ART.”

No, average consumer, you’re not crazy. Yes, you did have an apple in your fridge last night.

No worries, the Fridge Locker has your back. Like a footlocker, but for your fridge. Tuck your food in this ice box crate, set the combination lock, and sleep easy, my friend. That leftover pizza is now safe from your roommate suffering from a sudden case of the munchies.

Portal Companion [Ice] Cubes Will Never Threaten to Stab You

If you’re anything like me, you’ve spent the last five years in a hazy stupor of depression after incinerating your closest (and only) friend in Valve’s puzzle video game, Portal (if you don’t know what that is, check out this pumpkin turret as a refresher). You, like thousands of others, savored that seventeenth of test chambers, quickly growing to love your Weighted Companion Cube, with its pink heart faces and its…weight. But you would learn too late that the Companion Cube had a powerful kryptonite: its one weakness was incineration. And you had to be the one to do it.

I get it. You’ve suffered pain. We all have. But rest easy, friends, because just in time for the holiday season, the Companion Cube has made its chill comeback as an ice cube…via this tray from ThinkGeek.

I stil can’t decide if this is fitting or ironic. After all, ice cubes are way more susceptible to incineration than whatever the Companion Cube was made out of before. Fortunately, if one melts, you can make another one without having to wait four years for a sequel.
