Irish People Try American Pop-Tarts Flavors For The First Time [WATCH]

Pop-Tarts have become an American staple when it comes to last-minute toaster pastries for anyone who doesn’t have time to cook breakfast. We wonder if the rest of the world depends on the frosted and filled rectangles to get through their morning rituals.

In Facts‘ latest video, a group of Irish people try American Pop-Tarts for the first time. By American, they mean all the weird flavors that you can only for a limited time.

Watch as they react to the sugary variants. Flavors include Red Velvet, Hot Fudge Sundae, S’mores, Maple Bacon and Watermelon.

Starbucks Is Doing Something Great With Its Unsold Food

Turkey-Panini-Starbucks

Starbucks goes through a ton of food every day. The coffee chain has become a leader in quick-service, which means each restaurant should be stocked with enough food to last for weeks.

However, not everyone can afford some of the pricier food options Starbucks offers. Naturally, there would be some left over.

CEO Howard Shultz told CNN that Starbucks will be working with Feeding America food bank network to donate 100 percent of that unsold food to charity.

While the company has been using a pickup system to delivery unsold pastries, they’re working towards getting the unsold food items that are perishable in the hands of those who need it.

Sure, it’ll probably be a while before they figure out how to get those spoilable breakfast sandwiches to the needy. Though it’s cool to see them take steps towards helping others, especially with all the food that goes to waste. Also, Latte-Gate.

Spectacular Time-Lapse Shows A Millennium Falcon Cake Being Built [WATCH]

Millenium-Falcon-Cake

Earlier today, five new posters for Star Wars: The Force Awakens dropped showcasing all the major characters for the upcoming space opera. What began in 1977 grew into a timeless saga of good vs. evil in a galaxy far far away.

One of the biggest things we’re stoked about is seeing the Millennium Falcon once again.

It’s been years since the last Star Wars film and decades since the infamous spacecraft soared on the big screen. No, we’re not counting that depressing cameo in Revenge of the Sith.

Pastry chef Sarah Strain, in an impressive feat, was able to recreate the beloved ship as a cake. Now, we’ve seen Millennium Falcon cakes before, and this is by far one of the most impressive.

Watch this amazing time-lapse of the cake-building process. We didn’t think we could be any more hyped for the new film, yet here we are.

Pronto, a coffeehouse in Japan that serves everything from pastries to pizza, just added an amazing new pastry to its menu: Kit Kat Croissants. Let’s take a moment to appreciate how awesome something like this exists.

Each Kit Kat Croissant can be eaten as is, or toasted upon request for a meltier snack.

If you’re currently in Japan or plan a trip out sometime in the near future, please bring us back some. Not joking.

A Pop Tart-Stuffed Doughnut for Those Who Don’t Fear Cavities

Pop-Tart-Donut-cover

The battle for a well-balanced breakfast has always hinged between two combatants: Pop Tarts and Donuts. The folks at OC Donut Bar decided enough tears have been shed in making such a difficult decision. As a solution, they’ve created an amalgam of the two breakfast pastries aptly titled “Big Poppa Pop Tart Donut.”

Now you may think it’s just a jelly-filled donut dressed to look like a Pop Tart. Nope. Each Pop Tart Donut features an entire toaster pastry stuffed inside. Talk about a hearty breakfast treat.

You might remember OC Donut Bar for dropping their infamous Monte Cristo Donut.

Cannibals Get Caught Slinging People-Filled Pastries

empada-brazil.0.0

Hannibal-style empadas, anyone?

Three people are being tried in Brazil for acts of cannibalism and frankly being disturbed as all hell. A husband, his wife and his mistress were all charged with killing and dismembering two women. The women were told they would be offered employment as nannies, but instead were met with a terrible fate.

As if that weren’t bad enough, the grisly threesome ate parts of their victims and used their flesh to make Brazilian pastries known as empadas. To make matters even worse, the trio ate and sold these pastries to their neighbors. Oh, and their innocent kid also ate some people-flavored empadas. Those crazies couldn’t even leave the poor kid out of it. The reasoning behind such a disgusting crime? They were trying to purify the world and reduce its population. Smh.

This isn’t the first time people have gone AWOL and turned full-on cannibal. Last month, we reported on an Australian chef who offed his girlfriend and thought it wise to turn her into a meal. This guy narrowly avoided the cops by taking his own life. Seriously, what the actual fudgsicles is wrong with people?

There Is An Entire Cookie Fried Into This Donut

cookie-inside-donut

Just a few moments ago San Diego, CA-based cookie shop The Cravory Instagrammed a photo of what appears to be an entire cookie baked right into a glazed doughnut.

Warning: the product doesn’t seem to be available just yet and may still be in its test phase. The photo was tied with a short blurb that mentions “Our Chef Derek is having a little fun in the kitchen today! What do you think about this cookie inside a donut!? #cheflife #kitchenfun”

If the recent success of donuts stuffed with ice cream is any indication, we’d imagine these cookie-stuffed donuts would go over extremely well with the proper audience (see: anyone with tastebuds).
