Vegemite is an iconic Australian food spread that’s made from leftover brewer’s yeast extract. The flavor of Vegemite can best be described as an intensely savory and salty smack to your palate.

Though the condiment can be quite polarizing to folks outside of Australia, locals swear by it. Domino’s Pizza locations in the Land Down Under are catering to Aussie tastebuds with the debut of a new Cheesy Vegemite Pizza, which pairs the iconic Australian condiment with melty mozzarella.

Heinz Ketchup Has a ‘Tomato Blood’ Costume Kit for Halloween

It’s easy to see why ketchup has long been mimicked as blood. The red condiment is an effective stand in, really, and earns its stunt double reputation especially around Halloween.

Capitalizing on this, Heinz just launched a limited-edition Tomato Blood Costume Kit to amp up everyone’s Halloween costumes and vibes.

The Tomato Blood Costume Kit is made up of a Tomato Blood Ketchup bottle, face paint, applicators, stick-on tattoos, vampire fangs, and more. In addition, Heinz is leaning further into the Halloween spirit by building a branded Halloween Store pop-up in Los Angeles, where fans can cop Heinz Halloween products and can even enhance their costumes at interactive “drip stations.”

If you’re looking to have a bloody good time with this costume kit, head on over to the Heinz Halloween website to purchase.

Fed Up With Husband’s Laziness, Woman Deep Fries His Prized Pet Fish Worth Thousands

When bae gets mad, there’s levels. And depending on said level, the lesson they’d like to teach their partner can range from the valley of some stern talking to or the peak of them deep-frying your pet fish worth tens of thousands of dollars.

The latter is exactly what happened in a viral TikTok clip from @miakurniawan01 that shows her teaching her husband a lesson for being too lazy — by frying up his pet Asian arowana fish. This fish isn’t your typical guppy, though, as the Asian arowana is a highly coveted fish, worth anywhere from $300 to $70,000 or more. A rare albino breed once sold for an eye-popping $300,000.

Though this man’s fish wasn’t as expensive as a Lamborghini, we can be sure that he probably had a good chunk of change wind up in the deep fryer. Pretty hefty price for not cleaning the fish tank, really.

In subsequent TikTok clips done in response to comments from folks, Kurniawan’s husband ultimately forgave her and is now in the market for a new pet Asian arowana.

Shake Shack’s New Black Truffle Menu Available Nationwide

Black truffle menu items always have an air of lavish aura around it, enticing diners with its nutty, earthy, and uniquely savory flavors. This reputation is the very reason why Shake Shack’s Black Truffle menu had a successful test last December at four New York and California locations.

And with that success comes a much wider nationwide release of the Black Truffle menu, which includes a Black Truffle Burger and Parmesan Garlic Fries with Black Truffle Sauce. The Black Truffle Burger is a gruyere cheeseburger topped with black truffle sauce and crispy shallots on a potato bun, while the Parmesan Garlic Fries also gets a topping of the decadent black truffle sauce.

Both menu items are made with Regalis Foods’ USDA Organic Black Truffle Arbequina Oil, which is flavored with real Spanish black truffles, and are available nationwide starting Friday, October 15 through January 10.

Those who have the Shack app can get early access to try the new Black Truffle menu starting October 12.
