Milk Bar is Serving Up a 10 INCH Peaches and Cream Cookie Cake

Milk Bar, the NYC bakery famous for their wild creations like cereal milk soft serve, is serving up a new version of their Compost Cookie Pie. This time, they’re giving it a southern spin, with the new Peaches & Cream Cookie Pie. 

For the uninitiated, the Compost Cookie Pie is, as the name suggests, a giant cookie packed with an assortment of ingredients, from potato chips to coffee. 

The new one’s ingredients are a bit more subdued, but equally as delicious. Layers of white chocolate chips, dried peach bits, and milk crumbs are incorporated into to a 10-inch wide sugar cookie which is then drizzled with a peach jam and more white chocolate.  

Peaches? Check. 

Cream? Check. 

A cookie double the size of your head? Check.

Unfortunately, this is just a test item for the time being. Milk Bar will only be selling this for a limited time. If you want to try this diabolically sweet creation, it’s available for order online at www.milkbarstore.com until August 19th.

Stone Fruits At Costco, Walmart And Aldi Are Being Recalled For Listeria

Peaches, plums and nectarines that were imported from Chile are being recalled at various retailers across the country due to a potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

According to a press release from the FDA, the stone fruits were distributed by Jac. Vandenberg, Inc. in New York, to stores like Walmart, Costco, and ALDI. The cause of the Listeria contamination is currently unknown, but is being investigated after a routine sample check at the company’s packing house tested positive for the pathogen.

While Listeria contamination is typically associated with processed meats and fresh cheeses, it’s not uncommon for the bacteria to get into soil and water and get into nearby-growing produce. Healthy individuals usually only suffer from typical food poisoning symptoms, but the infection can be serious for young children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems. Listeria is also known to cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.

Below is a table the FDA posted showing the full list of states, retailers, and fruits affected by the recall:

At Costco and ALDI, the fruits were packaged under the brand “Rio Duero,” and all of the peaches and nectarines have a Chilean country of origin label (COOL).

So far, no poisonings have been reported yet, but if your fruit is part of the affected batch, it should not be consumed. The FDA is urging those who have bought any recalled produce to return it to the story they bought it for a full refund.

Some Fools Made Boozy Peach Tea Popsicles And #SUMMER

During one of the hottest summers in America, the Foodbeast team tries to stay cool as best as possible. So, we’ve prepared a popular frozen treat strictly for the 21 and over folks.

To get started, let’s talk about the three main ingredients you’ll need: sweet peach tea, your choice of a good bourbon, and of course, peaches (or white nectarines, whichever floats your boat). Next, soak some sliced peaches in the bourbon for a few hours so they can absorb all the alcoholic goodness. Add them to your pop maker. Then, fill the mold with sweet peach tea, top it with the holder, and set them in the freezer.

After a few more hours, the Sweet Peach Tea Bourbon Popsicles will be ready to cool your mouths down and hopefully get you a little tipsy.

To find more recipes like this one, check out our Toasty creations on Facebook.

19 Times Beyonce Lyrics Made Us Hungry

Whether you’re a proud member of the BeyHive or not, there’s no denying Beyoncé is one bad bitch. Her songs seem to cover a pretty wide range of emotions (er…topics), from her naïve early days as the lead lady of Destiny’s Child, to the straight-up nasty music in collab with her ~supposedly~ philanderous husband, Jay Z, in her self-titled album, to the more recent, heart-wrenching Lemonade about said philanderous husband. ‘Yoncé pretty much kills the game no matter what her mood is and no matter how much of a dickwad Jay Z feels like being that day.

Regardless of the subject, the woman knows how to throw in a good food reference, and here are 19 song lyrics to prove it. As a spoiler alert, half of these are sexual innuendos, and the other required some serious research to understand, but we’ll take it.

 

beyonce ice cream truck
This sentence is pretty much verbatim from the section where they first explained what a “simile” was in my seventh grade English textbook. Plus, everyone loves ice cream. Way to kick off your debut solo album with a classic, Beyoncé.

 

beyonce summertime
Who would have known P. Diddy would be the type of person to care so much about B’s mental health like that?! Leave it to Mr. Combs to remind us about what’s important in life.

 

beyonce love on top
Based on the number of times Beyonce says “again” here, we’re going to assume this was a full on mack sesh. But hey, if he’s throwin’ out the dough for the good stuff, I’d be down to kiss him all night, too.

 

beyonce drunk in love 1
This quote refers to a time where Tina Turner, formerly known as Anna Mae, got cake shoved in her face in broad daylight by her abusive and jealous husband, Ike Turner. Not cool. Way to be insensitive, Jay Z.

 

beyonce party 2
Sounds like a typical Friday night with friends. And by friends, I mean food.

 

beyonce 711
Moral of the story – don’t mess with Beyonce and her liquor or she’ll f*ck you up.

 

beyonce creole
You might have to think about this one, but once you get it, you’ll know.

 

beyonce work it out
Raise your hand if you still find it incredibly creepy when ladies call their men “Daddy”.

 

beyonce partition
For all you noobs out there like me who have no clue what this means, this phrase refers to all the ass pics on Instagram. There must be a ton of them to warrant their own phrase. *hastily opens Instagram*

 

beyonce formation
I’m sure men everywhere heard this lyric and stepped up their game once they realized they could get a free seafood feast out of a little added foreplay.

 

beyonce party
Am I the only one whose mind automatically wanders to an image of Beyoncé covered in tomato sauce looking really uncomfortable?

 

beyonce drunk in love 2
TBH, I would probably walk right out the door if a man ever referred to my boobs as “breastases.” I wonder about you sometimes, Jay Z.

 

beyonce blow
I solved your riddle, alright. As a side note, I personally think every Sex Ed class should employ this metaphor for the female anatomy whenever possible. We’d have a lot less confused guys out there. Thank you, Beyoncé. You really are a saint.

 

DSC08912
C’mon, why you gotta do a guy like that? He was just in the food court eating a gyro! Pronounced yee-roh, btw.

 

beyonce sake
Okay so technically Yamazaki is whiskey not sake, but it’s cool, B. As a matter of fact, Yamazaki is the first whiskey to be commercially produced in Japan. It’s pretty incredible, if you’ve never tried it.

 

beyonce suga mama
From this sentence, I’m going to assume Beyoncé is trying to say that she is sweet, wet, and messy. Did I get it? Did I crack the code???

 

beyonce in da club
I’ve said this on multiple occasions, but Beyoncé, can I be you?

 

beyonce partition 2
If you’re ever looking for an exposé on the sex lives of the rich and famous, let Partition be your guide.

 

beyonce formation 2
For those times when somethin’ just needs a little extra spice.

 

Well, after all this I think it’s pretty clear I need to spend more time on Urban Dictionary in an attempt to understand all of these euphemisms because I struggled to keep up.

You keep doin’ you, Beyoncé. Can’t wait to see what you come out with next.

Today I Learned: Canned Peaches Are Healthier than Fresh Peaches

canned-peaches

Just go ahead and forget everything you’ve ever heard about canned fruit being bad for you. Because turns out, it’s all lies — at least when it comes to peaches. That’s right, Mom, a new study of peaches’ nutritional value found that canned peaches are just as healthy as fresh ones. In fact (wait for it) it turns out that sticking fresh peaches in a can and letting them marinate for awhile actually improves their nutritional value. The Journal of Sciences and Agriculture published the peach-focused research findings, and they pretty much blow fresh peaches out of the water. Canned peaches (yes, the kind you find in your local supermarket) had four times as much Vitamin C as their fresh counterparts, plus comparable levels of Vitamin E and a ton more folate than fresh peaches.

There are a couple of things to pay attention to before you swear off of fresh peaches forever, though. First, the nutritional benefits only apply to peaches that are canned in water — when they’re canned in syrup, the sugar levels go way up and undo all those nice health benefits. Second (and more sketchy) the study itself was funded by the California cling peach industry. The researchers swear up and down that their research is legit, but we’re going to take it with a grain of salt. Just in case.

IHOP’s Brioche French Toast is the Best Thing Since Sliced (French) Bread

IHOP has changed the lives of French toast fans forever by rolling out a line of brand new Brioche French toast. For the unenlightened, Brioche is the French bread equivalent of sinking your teeth into a cloud — a buttery, fluffy, slightly flaky cloud with just a hint of sweetness. Now imagine that as the foundation for French toast, and you’ll see why IHOP’s announcement has everyone all hot and bothered. And because apparently drowning us in a sea of buttery goodness wasn’t enough, they decided to add a bunch of delicious fruit toppings. Toppings, people.

There’s the Banana Foster French Brioche

Bananas Foster Brioche French Toast

The Berry Berry Brioche French Toast

Berry Berry Brioche French Toast

And the Peaches & Cream Brioche French Toast.

Peaches Cream Brioche French Toast

I’ll be honest, I hated French toast for years. Something about the whole egg and bread combination threw me off, but I really wish I could go back in time and shove my past self’s face into a plate of Brioche French toast. Pretty sure that would fix everything. Happy eating!

Pork and Peach Sandwich

Peaches always remind me of summer so when I saw this sandwich I thought of this time of year minus the 100 degree weather and the merciless beating Sun. This sandwich is pretty simple: roasted pork loin, caramelized peaches, and its served in between a toasted roll. You can find this at Five Borough Bistro. If this doesn’t scream out delicious I don’t know what does. (Thx Scanwiches)
