Could These New Ketchup Leather Squares Change Burgers Forever?


Plan Check in Los Angeles is known for their insane dishes. One of the cooler innovations from the Plan Check kitchen is their “Ketchup Leather.” Though it looks more like a Fruit Roll-Up than actual leather, the tangible condiment is actually solidified ketchup.

The purpose of the Ketchup Leather, according to Food Steez, is to keep the sweet red sauce from soaking into the burger bun. Upon contact with the meat patty, the perfect square of ketchup rehydrates itself.

If there’s a takeaway from any of this, it’s that we need more Ketchup Leather in our lives. Our burger buns have been unbearably soggy these days.

Ben & Jerry’s Ron Burgundy ‘Scotchy Scotch Scotch’ Ice Cream Arrives


In the fine words of Ron Burgundy:

“I love scotch. Scotchy scotch scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly.”

There are few things better. Except of course, mixing scotch with ice cream. Which is why Ben and Jerry’s wins at life for releasing their new Run Burgundy-themed flavor, titled, of course, “Scotchy Scotch Scotch,” to promote the upcoming Anchorman 2. It’s kind of a big deal.

The flavor consists of butterscotch ice cream with butterscotch swirls. We’re a bit disappointed there’s no actual scotch in the recipe, but we’re sure that can be remedied by curling up with a bowl of ice cream next to some leather bound books, our favorite lamp, and some riveting Panda watch.

These BBQ Sauces Come in ‘Cola Leather’ and ‘Tobacco Moonshine’ Flavors


We love us some good sauces like ooey gooey marshmallow or deliciously Creamy Sriracha Sauce. You know, the kind that satisfy our offbeat cravings. But never before have we come across a topping that fulfills our desire for rootbeer and pickles or Cola and leather. That is, until now.

Todd’s Concoctions was created so people could “taste the redneck rainbow,” and thus sauce flavors like Cola Leather BBQ and Tobacco Moonshine BBQ were born. If those flavors aren’t novelty enough for ya, the line also features Marshmallow Smoke Ketchup, Chewing Gum Tobacco Ketchup, Squid Ink Cayenne Hot Sauce and Rootbeer Pickle Hot Relish.

Honestly, when’s the next time you’ll be able to flavor that burger with a dash of chewing gum tobacco essences? Our guess would be never, so we suggest to get your hands on these sauces while you can.
