SLICED CHOCOLATE Will Change The Way You Eat Everything

Chocolate-Slice-Bourbon

Bourbon, a Japanese chocolate company just added one of the coolest slices of confectionary around: Chocolate Slices.

Picture the store-bought slices of cheese you can throw on your sandwiches. That’s pretty much what these chocolates look like, RocketNews24 reports. Folks aren’t just throwing it on bread, though there’s nothing wrong with that. Rather, they’re finding pretty sweet ways to play around with the chocolate slices.

This includes throwing them into crepes, cakes and crackers. You can wrap them around strawberries or even drop a fat stack on some pancakes.

Unfortunately Fortunately, you have to commit to bulk bundles of the chocolate when purchasing online. Each minimum order consists of a dozen five-slice packs. At 3,240 yen ($27 USD), you’re gonna have to find somewhere to put all that chocolate.

Shouldn’t be too difficult.

What It Looks Like When You Order 100 Slices Of Pork In Your Ramen Bowl

100-Chashu-Slices

P.K. from RocketNews24 is our hero. The reporter decided he wanted to tackle 100 slices of chashu in a single bowl of ramen, so that’s exactly what he ordered. Chashu, a fatty pork belly that’s braised until tender and served in slices, is a common topping for ramen.

Ramen chain Ishiyaki Ramen Kazan was holding a promotion where 30 slices of chashu could be added to your ramen. Typically, a regular ramen bowl only boasts 2-3 slices. Thirty slices of pork, however, wasn’t going to cut it for P.K.

The writer asked the restaurant to add an unheard of 100 slices.

It cost about $85, Mashable reports.

While he was only tackle about 40 slices, the reporter gets mad props for attempting such a feat. Pretty sure his body’s thanking him for calling it quits.

Kraft-Cheese-Recall

The Kraft Heinz Company announced that it’s recalling 36,000 cases of Kraft Singles, Consumerist reports. Turns out, the plastic wrap that separates each individual slices is a choking hazard.

In a press release, the company stated, “A thin strip of the individual packaging film may remain adhered to the slice after the wrapper has been removed. If the film sticks to the slice and is not removed, it could potentially cause a choking hazard.”

There have been three reports of people choking on the plastic and ten overall complaints about the packaging.
