Spice Up Your Valentine’s Day With Burger King’s “Adult’s Meal”

Move over, kid’s meal. Your era of little plastic toys just got replaced.

In Israel, Burger King has finally given us older people what we’ve been waiting for — a meal that gives us a “toy” we can use.

Burger King restaurants there will be getting the “Adult’s Meal,” which is what looks to be an adult form of the 2 for $10 Whopper Meal we can get here in the United States. The meal consists of two Whoppers, two orders of french fries, two beers, and an “adult toy,” according to Adweek.

The video above showcases examples of this “adult toy,” including a feather duster, scalp massager, and eye mask. Based on the music, we can’t help thinking some of the toys may be a little more sensual in nature than that.

To get this “Adult’s Meal,” you have to go to a Burger King in Israel after 6:00 pm local time today, and be over 18 years old.

This is definitely a new take on what fast food chains can do for the most romantic day of the year. Tons of chains do “Meals for Two” style promotions on this day to bring people in, and Taco Bell is even giving away a couple of weddings in their Las Vegas Cantina this year.

Still, pretty sure Burger King is the first to try to “turn you on” with their meal promotion.

Burger King Just Released A Heart-Stopping Doughnut Burger In Israel

Blending sweet tastes with savory ones always elicits a special kind of sensation in your mouth, and if you’ve ever had a doughnut-bun burger, you know the feeling.

With the Hanukkah tradition of eating Sufganiyot, or jelly doughnuts, Burger King in Israel decided to incorporate that with their burgers.

They call it the SufganiKing burger, and comes with a flame grilled quarter-pound beef patty, mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, pickles, ketchup, and sliced onion.

In other words, it’s a doughnut Whopper–which sounds amazing.

Don’t know of any American holiday traditions that involve doughnuts, but it’d be nice to find an excuse to get this burger in the US. Preferably with a Krispy Kreme collab like Chicken Charlie’s triple donut burger.

Israel’s Ruling That Heinz Isn’t Ketchup Opens Up SERIOUS QUESTIONS

Heinz-Ketchup-Ruling

Isreal’s Health Ministry isn’t too keen on calling “Heinz” ketchup. In fact, thanks to the low tomato paste content, they’re rejecting the brand as the tomato condiment altogether.

According to Time, the ministry says that the product does not contain enough tomato to be worthy of the name ketchup. They ask for a 10 percent minimum.

This leads to the question, how much tomatoes are actually in our everyday ketchup?

We never knew Heinz contained so little, yet here we are with less than 10 percent of actual tomato paste.

Competitor Osem, a food manufacturer, protested about the amount of actual tomato that exists in a bottle of Heinz. While English labels may still call it “ketchup” the brand must be labeled as “tomato seasoning” in Hebrew text.

An importer of the ketchup is working with the ministry to change the 10 percent tomato requirement to 6 percent. Until then, Israeli consumers will be enjoying tomato seasoning with their food.

So currently a 10 percent minimum of tomato paste is required for ketchup to be called ketchup. If it gets any lower, are we still eating ketchup? Israel’s definitely right in the fact that we may very well be drowning our foods in corn syrup, vinegar and sugar that happens to be red.

Domino’s Kinky Sriracha Pizza Ad Is 50 Shades of WTF

Damn. 50 Shades of Grey continues to ruin everything.

This is a real print advertisement running in Israel for Domino’s Sriracha Pizza:

Created by advertising behemoth McCann Erickson’s McCann Israel branch, this ad pulls no punches (or spankings) with this disturbingly realistic tongue. Bound, gagged and surrounded by instruments of torture, it’s not clear if this tongue consented to this BDSM play.

But who needs consent in a world where Twilight fanfiction can become a best-selling, inaccurate novel about an already stigmatized community?

Update: The advertisement was a rejected pitch to a franchise in Israel. Tim McIntyre, a spokesperson told Perez Hilton:

“It’s real. The ad was created and pitched by an agency to the independent franchise in Israel. It never ‘officially’ appeared anywhere, because it was ill-advised, unfunny and not brand-appropriate. In a word, it was stupid…[The ad is] being presented as something that actually ran in Israeli media. It did not.”

Domino’s seems to be taking the mix-up in sexy strides:

Domino’s Pizza Unveils First Ever Vegan Pizza

v011

2014’s looking good for vegans already — if you live in Israel, anyway. Last Monday, Domino’s Pizza Israel launched a brand-new vegan-friendly pizza, the first of its kind worldwide for the chain. According to Jewish world news site Haaretz, several pizza chains in Israel already offer cheese-less pizzas, but Domino’s new vegan pie features a soy-based cheese substitute topped with vegetables. The family size goes for about $20.

Of course, we probably can’t expect something like this to roll stateside anytime soon, but it’s nice to know it’s possible right? Domino’s USA: your move.

Old Spice Guy Says ‘You Don’t Know What Taste Is’ in Israeli Beer Ad

isaiah mustafa maccabee beer

Look at your man, now back to me…

Isaiah Mustafa has stepped off his horse and put on a shirt, but the Old Spice Man Your Man Could Smell Like is still as dapper as ever in this new TV commercial for Israel’s Maccabee Beer. He appears to be sitting in the Oval Office employing his epic voice in a worldwide presidential address to the masses of people who “don’t know what taste is” and have no real reason for disliking Maccabee because they don’t know what “x over the square root of 31 tastes like.”

But don’t let this one go viral, Israel. We want him back. These hunky musical-soap commercials are just . . . creepy.

McDonald’s Israel “Big America” Retails For $9.25

McDonald’s Israel has introduced two “Big America” burgers which feature a half-pound-plus steak burger which will set you back $9.25. Afraid of still being hungry? The burger comes as part of a meal with fries and a drink for $14.66.  Not exactly a bargain for fast food, in any country.

Reports from Ynet and BurgerBusiness reveal that McDonald’s is utilizing a .55 lb patty with prime rib and entrecôte (rib steak) that is 90% lean. The creation of these burgers required installation of new cooking equipment, along with an overall retrofit investment totalling $2 million. The Big New York burger is 639 calories and is topped with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onion and Royal Sauce. The Big Texas burger is complete with barbecue sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and fried onions.
