Church’s Creates Chicken Tenders Out Of Honey Biscuits

Church’s Chicken has been a staple in the fried chicken industry for quite some time now. It comes as no surprise that the number of feasible fried chicken dishes they can come up with is limited. With that being said, today is not the day they run out of ideas.

Starting on Monday, March 28th, Church’s will begin selling their Honey-Butter Biscuit Chicken Tenders. The all-white meat chicken strips will be dipped in Church’s Honey-Butter batter then deep fried, as is tradition.

The entire meal, with 3 tender strips, a biscuit, a drink and some Honey Butter dipping sauce, will come out to roughly $5-$7, depending on your state and any customizations you do to your order. This new chicken flavor will only be available through May 22, 2016.

KFC Deep-Fried A Burrito Stuffed With Chicken And Bacon

KFC-Crispy-Burrito

While the KFC Philippines will forever be known as the place that introduced the Double Down Dog, KFC New Zealand has something a little less…”loud”…to offer its patrons. This comes in the form of a deep-fried, fried-chicken burrito.

The new Crispy Burrito boasts fried chicken stripes, cheese, bacon and a BBQ bourbon sauce slathered all throughout the insides. It’s then wrapped in a large flour tortilla and thrown into a deep fryer. Though the chain isn’t calling it a chimichanga.

KFC is really going out of their way to let people know they like to fry things.

The item is only available at select New Zealand KFC locations for a limited time. Customers can buy the new Crispy Burrito for $3.90 NZ ($2.89 USD).

There is Now a Kickstarter for Zero Calorie Chocolate

301e0dc319556bcadad1caa08ed96e45_large

There are few things more intense than a serious chocolate craving. When it hits you, it’s all you can think about. Everything begins to smell like chocolate, everything looks like chocolate, and, quite frankly, you’re not to be trusted if you walk past an ice cream or pastry shop. Even with the best intentions, sometimes it’s hard to avoid the sweets.

So that’s why Cravings is trying to raise money through their Kickstarter campaign to create zero calorie chocolate. Yup. Chocolate. With no calories.

The product works in a similar way to Listerine mint strips. As they say on their page:

Think back to Willy Wonka and the 3-course meal chewing gum. CRAVINGS can mimic this same idea by creating strips in the flavors of tomato soup, roast beef, or blueberry pie!

While we’re not so sure how that will play out, The Listerine of Chocolate does have a ring to it. Pledges can get the strips as part of their thank you package.  If they reach their goal, then it might not be too long before you see chocolate strips next to your Listerine in the drug store.

What do you think? Worthwhile cause for cravers everywhere, or will it never be as good as the real thing?

How the In-N-Out Double Double Ruined This Man’s Life [COMIC]

Cover INNOUT

To say Mike Royer of Pickled Comics loved In-N-Out is an understatement. The love between this man and an In-N-Out Double Double became so great that Mike decided to create a cartoon chronicling the epic tale of his discovery of the California burger chain. What started off as a glorious encounter quickly turned obsessive and downright ruinous.

On the bright side, it makes for a pretty awesome comic that proves as a cautionary tale for those of you hell-bent on In-N-Out morning, noon and night. Check out Mike’s brilliant work below and keep reading on for a quick interview with Foodbeast.

_____________

How much of this comic is based on your actual experience with In-N-Out?

Well the deep deep love for The Double Double conveyed in the comic is very real. But luckily, the burger has yet to put me out on the streets. Though, it is truly hard to not think about how many burgers I could get for the price of one movie ticket in Los Angeles.

Do you still eat In-N-Out or are you completely cold turkey?

I live in Los Angeles so the temptation is all around me. But when friends come to town I always use their visit as an excuse to drop in on In-N-Out. I guess I shouldn’t be calling them friends anymore. I think I’m suppose to call them enablers.

Are you still with your girlfriend?

She’s actually going to marry me now haha! I made sure the ring was big enough to distract her whenever I suggest In-N-Out for dinner.

When did you officially hit rock bottom?

I had some of my engagement photos taken at In-N-Out with my fiancée not too long ago. I think it’s safe to say some may consider that rock bottom.

When did you start drawing cartoons? What are your influences?

I officially started making Pickled Comics around the middle of 2013 but some of my best work resides in spiral bound notebooks from middle school. Page after page of little stick figures battling out to the death. Ok, so maybe not my best work. I grew up reading Fox Trot and Calvin and Hobbes. So Bill Amend and Bill Watterson have been a huge influence on my entire life. But in the end it was The Oatmeal and Matthew Inman that motivated me to start putting my work on the internet.

Have you’ve ever heard/had a Monkey Style Burger?

Does eating Animal Fries and a Double Double so fast they appear to merge into one entity count? The secret menu is my bucket list. It’s only a matter of time!
