This Little Ice Cream Shop Offers The Most Whimsical Cones In Southern California

One of the best things about working at Foodbeast is keeping an eye on ice cream trends. Whether it be the Afters Ice Cream ‘Milky Bun,’ or the unique texture from charcoal cones, there are always interesting concepts that catch on in the ice cream game.

This will probably be the next trend.

Bumsan Milk Bar in Los Angeles is a little ice cream shop that prides itself on serving organic ice cream, and their new cereal-rimmed cones are creating a buzz in the ice cream world, incorporating some of our childhood favorites, such as Froot Loops, Oreo O’s, and even Cap’n Crunch.

We went down to Koreatown to check out these bad boys, and were not disappointed.

The cereal is mixed with a gooey marshmallow sauce that sticks to the rim of their cones. After that, you can choose from some pretty unique ice cream flavors, such as dragonfruit lychee, taro milk tea, and even a true milk & matcha swirl.

The ice cream cones are $5.95, with an additional $1.95 for the cereal inclusion. You get a pretty healthy serving of ice cream on it, too.

It’s a modest little mom and pop with the option to add pizzazz to your cones, but at its core, the ice cream is the star, and will probably be the key to their future success in a city littered with trendy ice cream shops.

If you want to experience a flashback to your childhood breakfast, mixed with an appreciation for boba shop flavors, you’re going to want to try this place out.

Man Shoots Someone With Shotgun Shell Full Of Rice Krispies, Seriously

Photo: Amy on Flickr

We’ve seen food used inside of weapons before, but never in a bizarre fashion like this.

Eureka, California resident Timothy Glass Jr. was recently arrested after shooting an unidentified person with a shotgun shell full of Rice Krispies, FOX6 reports. It’s unknown at this time exactly why the victim was shot, but we do know that Glass Jr. used a flare gun with the cereal-loaded round to attack them, resulting in non-threatening injuries to the individual.

It’s also unclear exactly as to why cereal was substituted for a normal bullet in the shotgun shell. Did the attacker run out of rounds for his flare gun? Was it some kind of prank gone wrong between friends? There’s so many holes in this story that have yet to be filled, but hopefully we’ll get some answers soon.

What we do know is that the victim’s wounds were later treated at a local hospital, but they declined to press any charges against Glass Jr. Unfortunately for the attacker, he was still booked on charges of resisting arrest and probation violation after mildly injuring at least one officer while trying to flee pursuit.

Watch This Kellogg’s Employee Pee On Cereal At The Factory [NSFW]

worldstar-kelloggs-piss

The second World Star-hosted video involving food and male genitalia in one week has surfaced, featuring what appears to be a Kellogg’s worker filming himself urinating on products in an assembly line. Of course, the other incident World Star broke was a customer giving a waiter a blowjob at Denny’s, but this situation at Kellogg’s has a very small potential at affecting us much, much more.

After learning of the video, an internal Kellogg’s investigation found out the act was filmed back in 2014 at a facility in Memphis, Tennessee. According to Kellogg’s, the only products that could have potentially been affected include Rice Krispies Treats, Rice Krispies Treats cereal and puffed rice cake products. All products would be past their expiration point, anyways.

The explicit (nudity), NSFW video can be seen here courtesy of World Star Hip Hop:

According to a statement made to WREG, Kellogg’s is “outraged by this completely unacceptable situation, and we will work closely with authorities to prosecute to the full extent of the law.”

The matter is currently under a criminal investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. WREG said the video might have been shot during a labor dispute at the factory back in 2014.

6 Times Our Favorite Food Companies Fed Us Complete Bullshit

Depending on whom you ask, the phrase “truth in advertising” makes about as much sense as “shy, literate professional wrestler.” The difference between scientific fact and marketing gimmick is an ever-widening gulf, and these are just some of the corporate culprits that got caught with their filthy mitts in the cookie jar. Join us now in hawking a collective loogie on these despicable bastards and everything they claim to stand for.

Just Mayo

just-mayo-back

As you’ll come to see in this article, word’s like “Just”, “Simply”, and “Naked” mean very little when they appear on food labels. In this case, “Isn’t Even Technically” would be a more accurate descriptor for this mayo. Thanks to the interests of Unilever (who, oh by the way, manufactures Best Foods/Hellmann’s), the company’s lying name was brought to light in 2014, with some pseudo-illegal help from the American Egg Board. They don’t use any eggs (despite the fact that its label is basically just a picture of an egg), meaning they’re not allowed to call themselves mayonnaise.

Unilever eventually dropped the suit due to a major backlash, but Just Mayo was soon in hot water themselves for marketing themselves as a healthier alternative to other mayo options. The vegan mayonnaise contained such high levels of fat that the FDA ordered them to quit advertising felonious health benefits.

McDonald’s Monopoly

For over 75 years, McDonald’s has carefully cultivated an image that’s something akin to the Phillip Morris of fast food. Yes, this company and every single product it produces seems to affect the general health of America, yet we just can’t say no to their dollar double-cheeseburgers. But, aside from the woes decried in movies like Supersize Me, there’s also the rigged Monopoly sweepstakes scandal. It was found that between 1995 and 2000, marketing executives had pilfered the most valuable pieces, taking nearly $24 million while all I got was a small fucking fry with the purchase of a medium soda. May the plague of a thousand Big Macs clog the arteries of their souls.

 

Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Latte

920x1240

A seasonal favorite of basic bitches everywhere, the runaway success of the Pumpkin Spice Latte is just fucking gross at this point. As you may recall, there was an uproar last fall regarding the lack of pumpkin or spice in PSLs. After having the orange ooze (roughly the color of Snooki) chemically tested, Vani Hari aka Food Babe reported that not only did it not contain a trace of pumpkin, but was dishearteningly rich in caramel color class IV—thought by many to be carcinogenic, though this has been disputed. Still, Starbucks heard us loud and clear; they released the seasonal latte this year with actual pumpkin and sans cancerous caramel.

Naked Juice

naked-03

Jeez, all these fatty foods and sugary drinks make you wanna reach for something healthy, right? DON’T DO IT! Naked juice got in hot water in 2012 for claims that it was all natural… y’know, naked. Well, much like a pornstar, “naked” does not necessarily mean “all-natural”. Many of the supplements used in the formulation of the juices did not come from natural, non-GMO sources, and certainly don’t qualify as fruit. The Pepsi subsidiary also caught heat for containing more sugar per ounce than it’s parent company’s flagship soft drink, while at the same time doling out more unverifiable “magical elixir” promissory statements than Dr. Fucking Oz.

Rice Krispies

ricekrispies-d68e0c0e1bf52e6d34eab19796568b16fae1d5d1-s900-c85

It’s always good to capitalize on general unrest and mass panic. Or at least it is if you’re smoking snap, crackle and pop on a regular basis. Kellogg’s Rice Krispies did exactly that at the peak of the swine flu pandemonium in 2009, claiming that the cereal “Now helps support your child’s immunity,” though they never actually bothered to change the recipe. Any one who’s ever eaten the cereal will tell you that it should only be used as a cheap alternative to packaging peanuts. At any rate, the Federal Trade Commision slapped an injunction on the cold cereal mogul stating that they need to base their claims on something called “evidence.”

Genius Baker Turned Hot Cocoa Into Rice Krispies Treats, Here’s How

hcrbite

Winter’s creeping up, which means you get to wrap yourself in a blanket, grab a cup of hot cocoa and watch Elf on repeat.

While the blanket and movie won’t change in this scenario, Amy Erickson of the Oh, Bite It food blog took everything we love about hot cocoa and turned it into a Rice Krispies treat.

Erickson didn’t stray from the original Rice Krispies treat recipe, still making the cereal with Jet-Puffed marshmallows, but they key is in the topping.

Erickson covered the top of the Rice Krispies treats with chocolate frosting, mini marshmallows and hot cocoa powder.

While there’s no replacing a classic cup of hot cocoa, these treats are a pretty sweet alternative.

Check out the the Oh, Bite It for step-by-step directions and other insane recipes.
