Man Finds ‘Condom’ Like Prize In His Jar Of Jam

There are only a few expectations one has when opening a fresh jar of jam for the very first time. A used condom, is probably one of the few things you’d expect to see once that lid pops open.

Troy Hawkins, Mashable reports, posted on his Facebook a photo of an opened jar of jam he had apparently purchased from a Co-op Food in the United Kingdom. Inside of the jar, he found something that suspiciously looked like an un-rolled condom.

Co-op replied to the image, claiming it was “production foam” that solidified during the bottling process. Upon his initial complaint, they even compensated him a bit for his grief, though not enough to silence his frustration.

CoOP-Condom-Response

So what do you think? Is is a freak production occurrence made from the residual white foam? Or did some one have a little too much, albeit safe, ‘fun’ with the sweet jelly product?

The real tragedy is that single slice of un-jellied toast just sitting on Hawkins’ kitchen table.

Carl’s Jr. Is Offering ‘Three Ways’ With New Bacon Burger

3Way-Burger-Carls-03

Today, Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s announced the launch of their new Bacon 3-Way Burger. Hmmm, they have to know they’re opening themselves to some controversy with a name like that. Although the fast food chain has been known to push the boundaries of both sex and CGI.

The burger gets its name from serving bacon three different ways: Applewood-smoked bacon, crumpled bacon pieces and bacon jam. The burger also features cheese, lettuce, tomatoes.

3Way-Burger-Carls-02

We picked up a couple of the burgers to try them, delicious by the way, but we still couldn’t get past that name. Here’s what some of the Foodbeast staff had to say about it:

Isai

I feel very aroused right now, and not just ’cause I’m watching porn.

Marc

It’s like they want three pigs to f*ck you.

Reach

Were they watching porn on McDonald’s WiFi when they thought of this name?

Sean

Throw some hot sauce on that bad boy and you can call it a “Devil’s three way.”

3Way-Burger-Carls-01

You can get the Bacon 3-Way Burger as a single patty, double patty, or a 1/3 pound Angus patty.

Peanut Butter And Jelly Flavored Whiskey FTW!

The innovators of alcohol over at Aske Stephenson have come up with a brand new peanut butter and jelly whiskey that will undoubtedly lead to drunkenly reminiscing on the good times spent at the middle school cafeteria.

Thomas Aske and Tristan Stephenson, the two minds behind the global consultancy company and bar operator Fluid Movement, have created a new American culture-inspired whiskey beverage called Peanut Butter and Jam Old Fashioned that has sweet tooth drinkers everywhere drooling.

The bourbon whiskey is made by pressure distilling American whiskey with peanut butter and rich raspberry jam, then sweetened with a pinch of homemade raspberry syrup and a dash of pink Himalayan rock salt to balance out the flavors.

Each ready-to-serve bottle of Peanut Butter and Jam Old Fashioned is made from a different batch, creating a unique drinking experience for connoisseurs and collectors alike.

Just don’t start packing these into your children’s lunch boxes, lest you want to pick your inebriated child up from school.

Bacon Spread Exists and It’s the New Jam

Bacon-Jam-02

There’s never enough bacon. The popular, salted-pork trend has time and time again proven that the tasty strips will never get old or unnecessary. Kind of like Tyler Perry movies.

The problem is, if you want to upgrade your meals with bacon, you’re going to either have to pay more than you need to for a few measly pieces or go cook it yourself.

If only there was a way to use the savory flavors of bacon without having to repeatedly make restaurant trips or spend an hour frying and doing dishes. Things would be so much easier if you could just keep bacon in a jar.

Oh, hey.

Bacno-Jam-01

While traversing the floors of the Fancy Food Show, we discovered Bacon Jams. They specialize in spreadable bacon jam, so you can have your pork and eat it too. At your earliest convenience. Made with a half pound of pure bacon in each jar, it’s definitely not bacon-flavored jam.

Don’t you dare call it that.

The ratio between bacon chunks to actual jam is so generous, it’s like they threw gourmet candied bacon into a blender. The spread is available in three flavors: Original, Red Chile & Garlic, and Pepper.

Sure, burgers and sandwiches are probably the most practical ideas. However, if you’ve read our Onion Crunch piece from a few years back, you know that creativity is highly encouraged. You can throw these on deviled eggs, scallops, or even go deeper on top of some pork belly. Spread it on your cupcakes, your apples, your loved ones.

There’s no monogamy when it comes to bacon love.

What 24 Pizzas From The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cartoon Look Like IRL

shitty-pizza-drop

As a kid, I loved watching the ’90s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. Who didn’t? One of the things that stuck was all the ridiculous pizzas Michelangelo and his brothers would order throughout the series. As the years passed, I started to think some of those pizzas could actually be pretty delicious if done right. Though it did take a solid 22 years for anchovies to grow on me.

Like his Renaissance namesake, who would have thought Mikey was ahead of his time. Using some hunger-fueled imagination I recreated 24 of the most disgusting pizza orders from the TV show and turned them into something you could order at a restaurant. Cowabunga.

__________

Tuna fish, peanut butter and grape jelly

IMG_8163

Tuna ahi poke on top of a bed of seaweed salad and drizzled some hot, melted peanut butter and grape jelly on top. Went more for color than taste. Ending up tasting great so that worked itself out.

IMG_8145

__________

Peanut butter and clams

IMG_8709

Drenched the pizza in a cajun peanut butter sauce with four fresh calms. The heat from the sauce really made the clams, no pun intended, pop. Crawfish for garnish.

IMG_8721

__________

Peanut butter, avocado and extra pickles

IMG_8704

A bed of guacamole topped with avocado slices, melted peanut butter and some sweet dill pickle chips. This is actually a sandwich I make on many an occasion.

IMG_8687

__________

Marshmallow and pepperoni

IMG_7194

Pepperoni and cheese pizza topped with roasted marshmallows. The marshmallows look like haunting little lifeboats on a sea of pepperoni.

IMG_7188

__________

Marshmallow and asparagus

IMG_8877

Asparagus and cheese baked directly into the crust and topped with toasted mini marshmallows. Had to many different versions of this one before I settled on this. Couldn’t be happier.

IMG_8889

__________

Guacamole and Marshmallow

IMG_8663

A generous heap of freshly made guacamole and topped with a single marshmallow lit on fire. Kids, don’t try this at home. Grownups, go nuts.

IMG_8640

__________

Butterscotch, onions and anchovies

IMG_8479

Onion and anchovies caramelized in brown sugar and a butterscotch sauce. Tasted great but stunk up my kitchen like nobody’s business. Do turtles have nostrils?

IMG_8484

__________

Tea and toast

IMG_8866

A buttered slice of toast on top of tomato sauce and sprinkled with tea leaves, parmesan cheese and more tomato sauce. The original concept for this had chunks of toast drenched in tea. NOT. APPETIZING.

IMG_8864

__________

Chocolate sprinkles and clam sauce

IMG_8284

A cheese pizza made with a hearty clam sauce and chocolate sprinkles and garnished with green onions. Not easy to make clam sauce pop on a pizza. Had to tweak it into a chowder. Master Splinter would be proud.

IMG_8250

__________

Chocolate-chip

IMG_8898

Chocolate chips baked into the pizza and drenched with a generous amount of hot fudge. It’s essentially a cookie.

IMG_8928

__________

Chocolate fudge with extra garlic

IMG_8617

A generous amount of fried garlic on top of a pool of melted chocolate fudge. Definitely not something you’d order on a first date, but then again, are any of these pizzas?

IMG_8621

__________

Chocolate fudge, sardine, chili pepper, whipped cream

IMG_8825

A cheese and whipped cream pizza topped with shaved chocolate fudge and red chili flakes. Served with a fried sardine filet in chocolate fudge sauce. Any nutrients that piece of sardine contains is neutralized by that mountain of whipped cream. I guarantee it.

IMG_8835

__________

Anchovies and hot fudge

IMG_8548

Hot chocolate fudge drizzled over anchovy filets on a sauceless white pizza. Until the day anchovies turn into giant mutated fish that eat people, they’ll forever be my favorite fish.

IMG_8562

__________

Pepperoni and hot fudge

IMG_8219

A classic pepperoni and cheese pizza drizzled with a little chocolate fudge. Just a little. We’re not animals.

IMG_8225

___________

Pepperoni and pickles

IMG_8297

Cheese and pepperoni pizza with sweet dill pickle chips. The pickles add a crunch that can be heard all through the New York sewer systems.

IMG_8293

__________

Jelly bean and sausage

IMG_8514

A spicy pork chorizo and sour cream pizza topped with queso fresco and fresh cilantro and served with a jalapeño jellybean gastrique. The jelly beans had us stumped but luckily Reddit came to the rescue.

IMG_8533

__________

Salami pizza with double yogurt

IMG_8371

Two servings of vanilla yogurt topped with fresh salami slices and drizzled with blackberry jelly. If you can get over the idea of salami and yogurt, it goes down pretty tastily.

IMG_8388

__________

Shredded coconut and sweet pickles

IMG_8358

Pizza is topped with shredded coconut, drizzled with hot mustard and topped with sweet pickle chips. Shredder would be a crazy handy guy to have in this situation.

IMG_8357

__________

Strawberry with anchovy sauce

IMG_8781

Caramelized strawberries served with an anchovy butter sauce and topped with whipped cream. This one was the most difficult to come up with. Thankfully, whipped cream saved the day.

IMG_8782

__________

Hot oatmeal

IMG_8308

Hot, buttery oatmeal topped with brown sugar, honey and fresh strawberries. It’s another side to breakfast pizza.

IMG_8314

__________

Popcorn

IMG_6678

Truffle oil popcorn with parsley flakes and parmesan cheese. There’s a pizza somewhere under that mountain of popcorn.

IMG_6662

__________

Anchovies and banana

IMG_6656

Caramelized rum bananas and anchovy filets. The pizza that inspired this post. The bananas and anchovies were the perfect balance of sweet and salty.

IMG_6651

 

__________

Goulash

IMG_8598

Hot goulash served with crumbles of queso fresco. After a quick Google search of what exactly goulash was, it was pretty easy to make.

IMG_8595

__________

Granola and licorice 

IMG_8422

Vanilla yogurt topped with granola and shaved red licorice. It was a bitch to hand shred licorice, but doesn’t it look pretty?

Ben & Jerry’s New Ice Cream Has Two Flavors Per Pint and A Solid Core of Peanut Butter Fudge

bjcore

UK, you’ve been holding out on us. Earlier this week, Ben & Jerry’s announced a new line of “Core”-branded ice creams, each featuring a solid, well, core of fudge, caramel, or jam. Anyway, turns out these things have been available in the UK since 2012, which makes us wonder: why keep such a brilliant creation so hush-hush? We mean, it’s not like we’ve stolen any cool British stuff before . . . (*ahem, ahem*)

Each pint in the line features two halves of flavors separated by the topping core. The four new flavors are: Hazed & Confused, chocolate and hazelnut with fudge chips and a hazelnut fudge core; That’s My Jam: raspberry and chocolate with a raspberry core; Peanut Butter Fudge, chocolate and peanut butter with a peanut butter fudge core; and Salted Caramel, sweet cream with blonde brownies and a salted caramel core.

In other words, the perfect ice cream sundae in a pint, and now in your grocery’s frozen aisle.

Ingenious ‘Twistable’ Peanut Butter Jar Prevents Sticky Hands [VIDEO]

Peanut-Butter-twist-jar

Who hasn’t gotten sticky peanut butter  stuck to their fingers after scrapping the bottom of the jar for all the pea-nutty deliciousness hiding at the bottom. I know I sure have. After a while, it just becomes an annoyance and you just want to open a fresh jar. But it looks like Jar-with-a-Twist has found a way to revolutionize peanut butter sandwich making with their patented “twistable” peanut butter jar.

Jar-with-a-Twist will, not only allow easy access to “hard-to-reach” peanut butter, but also keep contents fresher by minimizing exposure to air. They even kept production costs of their twist jar as close as possible to that of regular peanut butter jars. If all works out, these guys will also be developing similar containers for “Jelly, Salsa and Mayonnaise.”

Unfortunately, it looks like we’ll have to wait a year to see if this will really take off. Until then, I will begrudgingly continue to make my peanut butter sandwiches with a stupid butter knife and a really long spoon. But I’ll always know there’s something better out there for me and my sandwich. I just have to wait a little while longer.

PB&J 2.0 Creates 9 Different Flavor Combinations

PB&J

No matter how old you are, you’ve gotta admit– peanut butter and jelly sandwiches rule. They’re the perfect classic combo that’ll never go out of style. We’re also fans of amping up such timeless concoctions, like making ’em into nachos or giving it a cornflake crust. But this time around, we’ve come across a whole new level of awesome: the PB&J 2.0.

The above photo was originally posted on Reddit with the caption, “My dad made me a pbj 2.0. When you close it you get 9 different flavor combos.” NO JOKES. We’re not entirely sure what’s exactly on this thing, but it looks a whole lot like stripes of peanut butter, jelly, Nutella, Fluff and honey.

Basically, this PB&J + so-much-more sandwich will bring you straight to flavortown. Strawberry jelly & Nutella in one bite, Fluff and peanut butter in the next? We need this STAT.
