Fast Food Hit-Or-Miss

Moonshine Burgers From Carl’s Jr. Are Hitting The Grills Today

I could sit here and make a joke about how you’re getting your food and alcohol at the same time and yada yada yada, but I won’t because I’m actually kind of stoked for this burger.

By teaming up with Junior Johnson, a hall of fame Nascar driver from the 50s and 60s turned moonshine distiller, CKE Restaurants (the company that owns Carl’s and Hardee’s) has given Johnson and his company (Junior’s Midnight Moonshine) an opportunity to combine the warm, charbroiled juiciness of a Carl’s patty with the heavy, semi-sweet glaze of the Midnight Moonshine.

The burger will be made with an Angus beef patty, and the ingredients include thick-cut applewood-smoked bacon, pepper jack cheese, and garlic and pepper fried onions, all drenched in the signature Midnight Moon moonshine glaze.

According to Entrepreneur, CKE Restaurants CEO Andy Puzder was digging the new burger, but tempered his expectations, saying “It knocked everybody’s socks off when we tasted it.” Still, any burger that plans to stick around on the menu must earn its keep. “You have to earn your way onto the menu.”

The Midnight Moonshine Burger will be available starting today, March 23rd in select locations nationwide and will be sold for $4.39, although prices may vary depending on location.

Gordon Ramsay Swears At Kids [HUMOR]


As foul-mouth as chef Gordon Ramsay is, he’s been known to keep things PG when he’s around children. Chef Ramsay is known for hosting tons of reality food and cooking shows both in the UK as well as the US. One show in particular is Masterchef Junior.

Like it’s adult predecessor, Masterchef, Masterchef Junior pits a bunch of kids together in a cooking competition. Unlike Ramsay’s other shows, however, the world-famous chef refrains from yelling at a bunch of kids.

For obvious reasons.

HOWEVER, some fan of Masterchef Junior decided to take Ramsay’s greatest vulgar hits and dub it over scenes from the children’s cooking show. While this isn’t real, it’s probably one of the more excellent fan cuts we’ve seen.

Check out the hilarious NSFW results below.


MasterChef Junior Looks Socially Awkward, Badly Dressed and 100% Adorable


For most kids, culinary genius came in the form of sticking your soggy tater tots into your soggy mystery meat sandwich and calling it a “Big Mac.”

And then there are these talented little sh*ts.

Debuting September 27 on Fox, MasterChef Junior is exactly what it sounds like: MasterChef, but with little people, and all the brightly colored hair bows, Velcro sneakers and sass that goes along with that. The promo trailer that was released yesterday offers a first look at the 24 lucky kids, aged 8 through 13, who will compete in front of judges Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot for the chance to be named America’s first Junior MasterChef.

Expect to see name-calling, maybe a little pushing and shoving, and of course, crazier food than you could ever expect from chefs who probably still think their fellow competitors have “cooties.”

When I first heard about MCJ, I was a little worried it would be just another poorly done spin-off with much gentler judges and much less Ramsay-cursing (only two instances, apparently) — but it’s nice to know Fox realizes exactly what its property is worth. After all, who can resist a montage of tiny cooking divas not being able to reach the dried porcini mushrooms sitting up on the top shelf? PRESH.

(And let’s keep our fingers crossed for an alcohol-cooking challenge, because come on, that’s just funny.)
