New FOODBEAST Spots Find Parallels Between Low-Cal Ice Cream And Taboos

FOODBEAST recently created a few spots that lean into “first time” taboo moments we can all relate to. Ice cream itself may be considered taboo amongst healthy snack enthusiasts, so for Halo Top‘s low-calorie ice cream to be the punchline of a new series was quite fitting. Halo Top is seemingly and unanimously co-signed by the Internet as a darling of the health food category, with GQ even calling it a “Magical, Healthy Ice Cream.”

We are all familiar with the trepidation that comes along with indulging in our favorite vices however, there’s nothing more liberating than being able to overcome some type of underlying hesitation and stepping outside of your comfort zone to experience something new.   

As these sketches ride the familiarity and wonder of certain coming-of-age experiences, be on the look out for the plot twists…


The First Timer

There’s nothing more memorable than a first-time experience. The pulse-racing anxiety, coupled with the exhilarating fear of the unknown, can lead to a rollercoaster of emotions. In this sketch, the shaken and nervous first-timer (Noah Grossman), gains enough courage to try it for himself. Alas, with the help of his “friend” (Madeleine Byrne), he discovers his first magical moment with Halo Top.    

 



The Rotation
There’s a first time for everything, still regardless of the lack of experience, there’s a societal understanding about the unwritten laws of social expectations one must live up to, and never mess up. After a first time experience, the social and interpersonal anxieties are still present — it’s an awkward phase, where it’s new, but most comfortable in a group setting. The rotation sketch places the viewer in a familiar first-person perspective, as four friends indulge with some Halo Top in privacy — all while adhering to the standard rule of scoop, scoop, pass.

Featuring: Fernanda Romero, Armen Martirosyan, Danielle Dallas, James Boyd


Dealer

Partaking at your own leisure is ‘me time’ to the fullest. However, for newbies, a little guidance can go a long way. Who’s the plug for proper satisfaction? It doesn’t matter, just as long as they’re not a professional lingerer.  

Featuring: Michael Davis, Megan Batoon

Kenan & Kel Reunited In Epic ‘GOOD BURGER’ Sketch [WATCH]

Good-Burger-2015

One of our favorite All That sketches in the ’90s was Good Burger. The wacky antics of the lovable register jockey Ed, played by Kel Mitchell, was so successful that it led to a Good Burger movie in 1997. Now, nearly 20 years later, late-night host Jimmy Fallon is bringing the band back together.

In last night’s episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Fallon had a sketch where he reminisced about his time working at the fictional burger chain. There, guest star Mitchell reprises his role as Ed.

It’s like he never left the role. So munch nostalgia packed into seven minutes. Check out the clip below as Fallon reunites Mitchell with his former costar Kenan Thompson.

New iPhone App Lets You Pawn Off Half-Eaten Leftovers to Complete Strangers

leftovers

Have you ever ordered way too much at a restaurant and said to yourself, “‘I don’t want to ask for a box. I wish it was socially acceptable to ask that dude over there if he wants my leftovers?”

Yeah, me neither, but in case you ever do want to give away your leftovers, there’s an app for that. (Surprise!)

Launching on Aug. 30, the Leftover Swap app will allow you to snap a photo of your leftover food, upload it to the app and alert others of its availability, from there you can arrange a pickup or delivery similar to Craigslist transactions.

Leftover Swap claims many benefits including reducing the amount of wasted food that ends up in landfills and helping reduce obesity. The idea behind the latter assumes that users will give away their food after being full, rather than forcing themselves to keep eating.

Co-Founder Dan Newman told the Daily News that 16 percent of the American population does not have enough food to live a healthy lifestyle and that he hopes the app will be a small step towards reducing world hunger.

However, health officials in San Francisco, California have warned of the dangers that might come with Leftover Swap, stating that most foodborne illnesses come from leftovers.

The app will be free and released on both iPhone and Android devices.

You never know what will catch on these days, but I don’t expect the doggie bag industry to hurt too much.
