PizzaRev Is Now Letting Kids Eat FREE At All Their Restaurants

While everyone’s advised to stay home, parents may have it pretty tough balancing a work-from-home life as well as the responsibility of feeding kids currently out of school. Yes, it’s every parents’ responsibility to make sure there’s food in their child’s stomachs, but what if that meant free pizza?

In an effort to bring some relief to stressed out parents, build-your-own pizza chain PizzaRev is letting kids eat FREE all day everyday.

With the purchase of an adult entree, a child will get his or her own personal cheese or pepperoni pizza, a healthy drink, and a dessert of their choice. Parent and child can sit down together and enjoy their own personally crafted pies from the safety of their homes.

PizzaRev is also offering beer and wine through DoorDash with proof of ID upon delivery. Just in case y’all feel like stress drinking.

Dairy Queen’s Latest Blizzard Is Filled With Sour Patch Kids

 

July is probably your favorite month of the year and you don’t even realize it. Why you may ask? Well because it’s “National Ice Cream Month”! Duh! 

What would National Ice Cream Month be without new and crazy flavor combos? And few ice cream brands are more known for such flavor combos than Dairy Queen. This month Dairy Queen is teaming up with Sour Patch Kids to bring you the NEW SOUR PATCH KIDS Blizzard Treat. The SOUR PATCH KIDS Blizzard Treat blends together the tangy chewiness of Sour Patch Kids Bitz and the sweetness of Sour Patch Kids Redbury Flavor in ice cream harmony. Perfect for the summer sweet tooth.

And if the NEW SOUR PATCH KIDS Blizzard Treat wasn’t enough, DQ created an interactive, mobile-first game called ‘DQ Spoon-A-Pult.’ In the game, players use a red spoon to catapult tiny SOUR PATCH KIDS into pools of Blizzard treats. Poor kids. With a gameplay style similar to Whac-A-Mole, if you’ve ever been in a real food fight, then ‘DQ Spoon-A-Pult’ is right up your alley. The game is available through @DairyQueen Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, or on mobile devices by visiting dqspoonapult.com/.  

The NEW SOUR PATCH KIDS Blizzard Treat will be available at participating DQ locations nationwide through the month of July.

Jell-O Just Launched DIY Edible Building Blocks For Kids

My mother always told me never to play with my food. Unfortunately, that’s something I never quite grew out of. Part of me knew that if I waited it out, playing with my meals would one day become socially acceptable. Well it seems that day has finally come.

Jell-O announced the debut of their first-ever line of edible toys.

Called Jell-O Play Build and Eat Kits, children can use plastic molds to create Jell-O building blocks that they can stack together and build pretty much anything with.

Also debuting are Jell-O Play Cutter Kits which lets kids cut out whimsical shapes from Jell-O molds and Jell-O edible stickers. Bring them all together and the sky’s the limit.

The new Jell-O toys are available for pre-order on Amazon and Target.com, and will be available nationwide this summer.

I have to wonder though, despite the age 4-12 recommendation, if I could build a Millennium Falcon with these blocks? Curious.

Notable dishes include popcorn, microwave dinners, astronaut foods, instant pancake mix, Hamburger Helper, and Velveeta cheese. Essentially all the food groups you need for a balanced on-the-go lifestyle.

Man, it really makes us feel old when these kids say they don’t recognize some of the foods they’re trying.

Watch These Kids Try Vegan Food For The First Time

Unless they’ve grown up in a vegan household, many children will not know what veganism actually is until they are introduced to it later in life.

The group of tots from HiHo Kids introduce their tastebuds to vegan foods in this new Kids Try video. Vegan dishes include Chikn Nuggets, Loaded Vegan Nachos, Vegan Bacon Cheeseburgers, and Soy Ice Cream Sandwiches.

The kids weren’t told that this would be a vegan tasting until halfway through their first entree. Needless to say they weren’t too happy with the surprise, and even less enthused after learning what it means to be a vegan. Children truly have no filter.

Check out the video and see how these adorable tykes react to different kinds of plant-based dishes masquerading as their meaty counterparts. Not going to lie, some of these vegan items look pretty darn tasty.

Fine dining has evolved tremendously in the last century. We’ve seen simple ingredients fully transcend their simplest shells into a higher form of taste through decades of tinkering and conceptualization.

Dishes throughout the last hundred years include blini with caviar, pheasant, waldorf salad, lobster thermador, frog legs, mushroom cappuccino with lobster, risotto, tuna tartare, and farm-to-table veggies.

Check out the video to see how these adorable tots react to trying these fancy dishes originally intended for adults and the wealthy.

Man, it’s fascinating to see the decades where these iconic dishes were at the height of popularity. Wonder if the film crew got to try any of the foods these kids didn’t want to mess with?

Watch These Kids Try Vietnamese Food For The First Time

Vietnamese food was everywhere for me growing up. With a large Vietnamese family, I got to try so many dishes, desserts, and drinks that the cuisine became like a first language for me as a kid. That’s why it’s always so fascinating for me to see how other people react to trying the dishes of my culture for the very first time.

In one of HiHo Kids’ latest videos, a group of little kids try the delicious cuisine from Vietnam for the first time. Iconic Vietnamese dishes include pho (rice noodle soup), banh xeo (savory sizzling pancake), ca kho to (braised claypot catfish), and soda sua hot ga (egg soda).

Check out their hilarious reactions to trying these dishes for the first time. Man, it makes us nervous how much Sriracha that one kid threw into their pho. Pretty sure his mouth caught fire.

I’m also pretty bummed they didn’t include my all-time favorite Vietnamese dish, com tam (broken rice), in this video. I guess kids can only eat so much food in one sitting.

Watch Kids Try Vegan Food For The First Time

Plant-based food is continuing to grow its presence in markets and restaurants nationwide. A plethora of vegan meat, dairy, and even egg products continue to pop up everywhere.

Given the increasing popularity of these foods, the team at REACT decided to test them on our future generation and feed a variety of vegan food to a bunch of kids who had never tried it before.

Vegan hot dogs, chicken nuggets, shrimp, turkey roast with gravy, and ice cream were fed to a group of the React children alongside the meaty original versions. The kids gave some seriously honest feedback on each of the products.

It’s crazy to see that even kids can be at least somewhat fooled by modern fake meat.
