Takis and Totino’s Just Dropped a Cheesy Snack Bites Collab

The worlds of spicy Takis chips and cheesy Totino’s pizza rolls are combining for a new fiery and gooey snack.

The two iconic snack brands have teamed up to make Totino’s Takis Fuego Mini Snack Bites. It’s not exactly a pizza roll (no pizza sauce, just mozzarella cheese inside), but the outside packs a citrusy punch of heat with Takis Fuego seasoning.

For those who have devoured plates of both while snacking, it’ll be an interesting mix of flavors, textures, and nostalgia to see these come out of the microwave or toaster oven (which is recommended for those who want the crunch of Takis to go with that heat).

They could also make an intriguing, spicy alternative to regular pizza rolls for those craving a bit of heat.

You can find these fiery hot and cheesy bites at retailers nationwide. A pack of 60 goes for $5.

Bill Gates Tries His Best To Guess Grocery Prices, Fails Miserably [WATCH]

While game shows like The Price Is Right show how hard it is for the common man to guess grocery item prices, you can imagine how hard it is for a billionaire who probably just has food seemingly appear on his dining room table every day.

Bill Gates recenly appeared on the Ellen Show, and because Ellen Degeneres is the queen of trolling, she created a segment where Gates had to try and guess the prices for a box of Rice-a-Roni, Tide Pods, Totino’s Pizza Rolls, dental floss, and TGIFridays frozen spinach and artichoke dip. He was given $1 leeway on his guesses, and if he could guess three out of the five items, the audience won a prize.

Gates immediately started off badly, guessing that a 7.2 ounce box of Rice-a-Roni was $5. It was in fact $1, so you can already see where this was going.

He guessed $4 for a case of Tide Pods, which shows he has no idea how much it costs to do laundry either. Even on his second guess, he went with $10, and was shocked to learn it was actually $19.97.

He legitimately got the cost of floss correctly, but once he got to the pizza rolls and artichoke dip, he needed a LOT of help from the audience. Funny enough, Ellen showed how out of touch she is with groceries, too, calling the pizza rolls brand “Totina’s” instead of “Totino’s.”

Ellen kind of let things slide, even though Bill was treading water, and the audience still won a chance to come back for her “12 Days of Giveaways” show.

So predictably, Bill Gates had no idea how much groceries cost, to the point that he looked legitimately shocked by the prices. He now knows what us common folk pay for food and home goods.

Prep Your Freezers For Totino’s HYPE New Bacon Mac & Cheese Pizza Rolls

If you’re a fan of Totino’s Pizza Rolls and also like to get down with some mac & cheese, then prepare yourself. Totino’s is coming at y’all with a mac attack unlike any other.

The frozen pizza and pizza snack brand has begun to unleash a brand new Bacon Mac & Cheese Pizza Roll upon grocery stores nationwide, and plans to have the mac-filled pockets fully stocked in grocery stores nationwide by October. Filled simply with bits of bacon, cheese, and pasta, you’ll be able to get them in packs of 40 for $3.99 or 90 for $8.79.

Totino’s is clearly hopping on the mac & cheese bandwagon with these hype new snacks, much like Burger King has done with their Mac N Cheetos or what Chick-Fil-A is doing with their new cheesy pasta side. However, Totino’s is gonna stand out with this cheesy bacon mac snack that you just have to pull (or dispense from) your freezer, heat up, and enjoy.

I can’t wait to get a pack for myself and see how they taste.

Kitchen Hack Turns Your Fridge Into A Pizza Roll Dispenser [WATCH]

When I got my new fridge, I used my ice dispenser as it was intended, for ice, like a sucker.

Apparently there are better uses for it, like instant access to your pizza rolls.

Chase Laub posted a video to YouTube, showing how his ice dispenser was transformed into a snack dispenser, as he used a classic Winnie the Pooh plate to activate it, and let the little pizza heroes fall in a dramatic cascade of munchies.

This makes us wonder what else we could be using the ice dispenser for. Maybe fill it with mini corn dogs, jalapeño poppers, even Oreo churros? Getting rid of that pesky ice leaves so much more room for other creative liberties we can take with the dispenser!

We have to thank Chase for showing us that traditional use of ice dispensers needs to stay in 2016. Dispensing pizza rolls are exactly how we want to spend 2017.

Chocolate Covered Pizza Rolls

Did you make a resolution to eat healthier in 2012? Not me. In fact, I’ve resolved to eat equally as much, if not more, ridiculously-bad-for-you goodies as I ate last year. And I started with these scrumptious, chocolate-covered puffs of “pizza in a golden crust” (Totino’s words, not mine).

Chocolate Covered Pizza Rolls

Ingredients

  • chocolate baking bark
  • your favorite variety of Totino’s Pizza Rolls (I used pepperoni)

Directions

  1. Follow the directions on the back of the pizza roll box. (I totally microwaved mine, but feel free to put them in the oven/toaster oven).
  2. Let the rolls cool completely.
  3. Melt your baking bark, coat the pizza rolls, and chill in fridge until set.

Easy as pie, pizza pie….in roll form and covered in chocolate.

My testers were a little unsure of what to think when it came to the taste, but overall they gave these treats a thumbs up. (And yes, I totally removed the pizza part and just ate the chocolate-covered breaded part…awesome).

The Eggsac: Calzone Stuffed With Pizza Rolls

Pizza Rolls used to be the highlight of my afternoon growing up in middle school. After a long hard day of simple addition, cursive q’s and z’s (fuck z’s…actually…fuck cursive, I haven’t used it once in the real world), I would run to the freezer, grab a box of pizza rolls and throw them in the microwave. Recently, someone took this childhood nostlagia to another level. They took a calzone and stuffed it with mini calzones, aka pizza rolls. Is this a game changer? I’ll let you fellow Foodbeasts decide… (PicThx TIWYF)

Craving: Homemade Sausage & Onion Pizza Rolls

Within the coming year, the one thing I would like to do more of is cooking at home. While pizza rolls have always been one of my top go-to frozen food items, it makes me  happy to see them in the wild, homemade and looking extremely delicious. Here’s a shout out to Nikki Ross who has 7 kids and is by far one of my favorite Foodbeasts of the moment! The above picture is of her homemade pizza rolls, a nice dough encompasses cheese, onions and sausage. Game on!
