The Mindblowing Truth Behind Taco Bell’s Cinnamon Twists Revealed

Just when you think you knew everything about Taco Bell, this bit of news drops right on your lap: those Cinnamon Twists you’ve grown so fond of eating at 2AM in the morning? Yah, turns out, they aren’t clever churros in disguise after all.

So, take a seat and check this sh*t out.

BOOM: Cinnamon Twists = Jazzed Up Cinnamon Pasta

Now, for the obligatory reactions some of you are no doubt experiencing:

Well, that escalated quickly.

Of course, we shouldn’t assume that our beloved Cinnamon Twists have been a pasta sham this whole time. We can’t be 100% certain that these photos were actually taken at a Taco Bell or that you can buy a bag of pasta, throw on some sugar and cinnamon, fry it up, and make your own DIY version at home.

Still, these photos of Twists that didn’t puff up into cinnamon goodness have a us a little suspicious:

Someone Made a ‘Bacon Weave Choco Taco,’ What Have You Done Today?

bacon-weave-choco-taco

I’m going to be honest, this Bacon Weave Choco Taco makes me want to chuck my laptop in the bin and call it a day. The impossible, the unimaginable and the incredible has already been done in one fell swoop, and what have I been doing with my life? Apparently, nothing even remotely close to what Nick over at Dude Foods is achieving.

On any regular day, Dude Foods will showcase the usual fare of deep-fried bacon cheeseburgers and deep-fried, beer-bacon-battered DLTs. The usual. I thought I had Nick all figured out — that he was a chocolate-chip-cookie-ice-cream-cone kind of guy and that was the end of it. Then, he had to go ahead and shove a bunch of ice cream into a bacon-weave taco and dip the damn thing in chocolate. To add insult to injury, he even sprinkled chopped peanuts on top. Ouch, we thought we knew you Nick, we really did.

Although, once our heads stop throbbing from the mindfuck, we’ll probably take some time out of our day to try this glorious Bacon Weave Choco Taco. We just ask that you go easy on us next time, Nick, and do something simple, like deep-fried Doritos.

11 Earth-Shattering Food Inventions that Will Change Your Life

As far as we’re concerned, food inventions don’t get nearly the credit they deserve. Sure, they might not be curing cancer or saving the world, but anything that keeps our cereal crunchy and automatically refills our beer cup has got to be worth a little fanfare. With that in mind, here’s a list of eleven food inventions that we’re sure are changing lives all over the world.

 __________

 

11. Anti-Loneliness iPhone Bowl

iphone-ramen-bowl

The only thing sadder than eating alone is eating alone without your electronic devices to keep you company. Luckily, the Anti-Loneliness Ramen Bowl prevents solitude-induced depression by carving out a space for that special something in your life: your iPhone. Just don’t let it fall into your ramen, or you’ll be lonely and phoneless.

10. Spoon-holding coffee mug prevents eye-stabbing

coffee-spoon

These specially-designed coffee mugs hold onto your spoon so you can maximize stirrability without worrying about getting a spoon to the face. We approve of any invention that makes coffee mugs multi-functional, but sadly these coffee cups aren’t available for purchase. Yet.

 

9. Deformed Caterpillar Polar Bear Ice Cube Maker

This Brrrrr ice cube maker from Black + Blum might look like the result of some really freaky inter-species sexcapades (if the polar bear/caterpillar orgy included a brief cameo by a manhole cover) but it’s actually the most efficient ice-cube maker we’ve ever seen. There’s no overflow and no mess, and explaining the bizarre plastic animal living in your freezer is the perfect icebreaker for any party.

Brrrrr $20 @Black + Blum

 

8. Wine-saving container makes corks obsolete

This swagged-out reusable wine container keeps your leftover vino fresh for seven whole days after you open it — way longer than even the fanciest reusable wine cork.

Savino $50 @ MyShopify

 

7. Tongue-Glove Toothbrush is not creepy at all

tonguebrush1

You might’ve thought that brushing your teeth while sitting on the toilet was the height of oral hygiene efficiency, but you were wrong. This is a toothbrush that 1) comes with built-in toothpaste, and 2) lets you clean out those food-packed molars any time, anywhere, with no one else the wiser. Stealthy, convenient, and efficient — we’re pretty sure this is the Batman of oral care aisle.

Toothbrush soon to be released at Tongue to Teeth

 

6. The Ultimate Breakfast Robot

Okay, so it’s really just a five-level automated breakfast machine that takes less than five minutes to whip up eggs, toast, ham, and cheese for you while you sit at the table in your underwear. The ultimate breakfast robot would also pour you a glass of orange juice and fry up some bacon on the side, but we’re not picky. We just like breakfast.

Breakfast Sandwich Maker $30 @Hamilton Beach

 

5. Forever crunchy cereal bowl is decades late

Any invention that maximizes cereal crunchiness and kills the dreaded soggy factor has our vote. We only wish this breakfast-saving invention had come out decades ago.

Eatmecrunchy $11 @Eatmecrunchy

 

4. iPhone Coffee Holder solves all #firstworldproblems

iphone-cup-holder-case

We love it when human ingenuity focuses on the important questions, like: “How can I text with both hands without spilling my latte?” The makers of this mug understand that we love texting (and the internet) almost as much as we love our daily caffeine fix, and we salute them for it.

Uppercup $25 @Indiegogo

 

3. Individual fondue mugs let you double-dip with no regard for the law

fondue

Everything about an individually-sized fondue mug makes us tingle in places we probably shouldn’t talk about on the internet. The twin fondue mugs are way more portable than traditional fondue pots and will let you double-dip to your heart’s content, plus they come with little tea lights for maximum melted deliciousness. Can you say perfection?

Fondue Mugs $15Amazon

 

2. Keyboard with built-in plate fights off stray bacon grease

keyboard-plate

We’ll be completely honest: Our jaws dropped when we saw this. Seriously, a plate that lets you eat at your computer while also protecting your keyboard from stray breadcrumbs and bacon grease? Every laptop should come with one of these babies stapled to the packaging. Sadly, this invention isn’t available for purchase; it was part of an art exhibit and isn’t being mass-produced. Sad day.

 

1. Ultimate beer-dispensing armchair is the height of human ingenuity

beerfill-FEATURE

We saved the best for last with this beautiful Bottoms Up Armchair. This magnificent example of booze-motivated engineering automatically refills beer cups using a specially designed dispensing tap, which means you can get properly wasted without ever having to leave your seat. It’s what happens when ultimate comfort meets ultimate practicality, and we’re pretty sure that this is what true love looks like.
