Arby’s Wants You to Climb Their Meat Mountain for $10

arbys

You can’t just post a picture of a giant stack of meat and expect people not to want it. In an attempt to illustrate that they have more than just roast beef, Arby’s created a poster of its different varieties of meats stacked on top of each other and unleashed it onto the world. Naturally, people saw this poster and wanted to order it. Thus was the accidental birth of the “Meat Mountain.”

Washington Post reported that although not on the menu, Arby’s restaurants will begin selling the “Meat Mountain” for $10 upon request.

The stacked beast contains: 2 chicken tenders, 1.5 ounces of roast turkey, 1.5 ounces of ham, 1 slice of Swiss cheese, 1.5 ounces of corned beef, 1.5 ounces brisket, 1.5 ounces of Angus steak, 1 slice of cheddar cheese, 1.5 ounces of roast beef, and 3 half-strips of bacon.

It might go without saying, but this behemoth won’t fit in their wimpy little sandwich boxes and will be paper-wrapped from head to toe like a burrito.

3D Printer Uses Mayo to Create Burger Selfies

mayo-selfies

Hellmann’s, a mayonnaise brand, recently launched a campaign for their products. The company posed the question: What if your burgers were a blank canvas? Setting out to answer that burning question, the brand used a 3D printer nestled inside a burger truck. The truck took photos of customers via smartphone.

The photos selfies are then uploaded and sent to the printer. Using a bottle of mayonnaise, the printer then draws the face onto the burger patty. Though we’re pretty sure the lines are long and the burgers aren’t too crazy, having your selfie printed in mayo does sound tasty (unless you’re one of those people who loathes mayo). Should give your Instagram selfie collection a different look for at least a day.

Just make sure to snap it before the mayonnaise runs.

Mayonnaise Dethrones Ketchup as Most Popular Condiment

 

mayonnaise-most-popular-condiment

Think ketchup reigns supreme when it comes to America’s favorite condiment? Well, time to shatter your reality. Pulling data from Euromonitor, Quartz graphed the growth of ketchup, mayonnaise, soy sauce , barbecue sauce, mustard and steak sauce markets from 2000 to 2013.

The verdict: The US consumes $2 billion worth of mayo each year, while the ketchup market is worth around $800 million — less than half of mayo’s. Soy sauce follows close behind ketchup at $725 million last year, with barbecue sauce coming in at $660 million. Mustard’s market, on the other hand, has been shrinking since 2009 and falls slightly under $450 million.

It’s worth it to note that while hot sauce is valued at $550 million, it’s grown by 150 percent since 2000 — more than ketchup, mayonnaise, barbecue sauce and mustard combined. As Quartz points out, “Hot sauce is having more than just a moment; it’s having a decade.”

A lot of the love is due to America’s rising immigrant population. The influx of Asians and Latinos has made spicy dishes more commonplace and has helped fuel the US’ current obsession with sauces like Sriracha and Tabasco (please refer to the great Tabasco vs Sriracha debate).

Naturally, the rising popularity of hot wings have also played a big part: Americans consume a whopping 25 billion chicken wings per year. “Sriracha, Tabasco, and Frank’s Red Hot, in particular, have really benefited from that,” Matt Hudak, Euromonitor’s US food industry expert, explained.

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.

Worst Job Ever Will Pay You $1500 to Eat Mayonnaise

mayo-job

As far as I’m concerned, there are two breeds of people in this world — mayo lovers and mayo haters. (I’m a solid member of the latter.) There’s really no appropriate occasion to eat such a jiggly, slimy condiment — not even when it’s infused with pot flavorings. Unless, of course, someone’s paying you wads of cash.

“Sign me up!” you say? According to RocketNews24, the job listing was spotted on Japanese textboard, 2channel, and seeks a healthy Japanese man between 20 and 45 years old. The chosen applicant will then be required to eat mayonnaise — no word yet on the exact amount — and undergo a series of “cholesterol tests.” At the end of the cruel and unusual punishment testing phase, the chosen fellow will be given 150,000 yen ($1,540 US) in return.

Again, we’re not entirely sure how much mayo participants must consume, but seriously — apply at your own risk. Gags.

Spicy Surf and Turf Burger

Most traditional surf and turf burgers keep it relatively simple, considering the genre-fusion of proteins going on. While normal concoctions would consist of a succulent piece of beef topped with an even prettier piece of lobster tail, our bearded friend decided his version was going to be a bit different. In this particular variation, the beef patty was topped with a freshly made lobster salad, using mayo, banana peppers and Sriracha for the dressing. Are you in? Or are you in?
