Behold: The Video Game Food Pyramid

video game food pyramid

Prepare to eat pixel dust, fellow gamers. This video game food pyramid recommends daily servings of health-replenishing crutches from our favorite childhood games, including Super Mario Bros., Zelda, Pacman, Final Fight, and Streets of Rage. At the moment, we’re debating on what disembodied hearts and anthropomorphic stars would actually taste like. So far we’ve got strawberry, cherry and red fruit loops for the pixelated hearts and lemon drops for the creepy star. Yes, we have a lot of time on our hands.

Although, we don’t quite trust the turkey from Streets of Rage. I’d rather chow down on a blue ghost (tastes like blueberries!) than poultry suspiciously left on the street.

This Super Mario Bros. Cake is Bowser Approved


This Super Mario Bros. themed cake is one of the most gloriously nerdtastic cakes I’ve ever seen. Adorned with Koopas, Goombas, Cheep Cheep and Petey Piranhas, the cake’s scenes depict some of the Super Mario series’ most beloved levels. Except for the underwater worlds, I really freaking hate how hard those levels are — erm I mean were.

Crafted over a period of five days by Cakecrumbs, an Australian-based food blog, this fan-made cake takes it a step further by including those little Mario World secrets, such as the hidden block with a vine. The detail is on point, from the shadows on the clouds, to the shine on the warp pipes, it’s a superfan’s dessert dream.

The only thing missing is Mario and Peach, but I’m sure they’d make the perfect cake toppers. Perhaps with a Toad as the minister? Erm, too cute. I’d say invite Luigi to this thing but we all know he’s got a bit of a Mario complex.

A Mug For Those Super Mario Fans

For all the gamers out there, here’s a nice Nintendo – Super Mario Brothers inspired item for your coffee during those intense gaming sessions. This 14 oz. mug might save your life! However it is not yet on the market, it’s suppose to ship later this month and you can pre-order it at for $34. It also comes with a randomly selected coaster, so you can save that coffee table as well.
