The New Double Down Burger Is Even More Ridiculous Than The Original

Foodbeast found a new KFC Double Down burger that is even more insane than the original: the Zinger Double Down King at KFCs in Korea. Instead of just sandwiching bacon and cheese with two fried chicken filets, this Double Down uses the same fried chicken for buns but adds a sauced up burger patty in between too.


This Is What Happens When You Give McDonald's To Organic Food 'Experts'

Video: “What happens when you serve McDonald’s food to some experts and pretend it’s a new organic meal?” ask Sacha and Cedrique. To answer this question they went to a organic food fair in Houten, Netherlands, armed with disguised McNuggets and Big Macs. You can imagine what happens — or just watch their video.


This Is How You Actually Break Open A Giant Italian Cheese

I’m just posting this for two reasons. Because I find it fascinating from beginning to end — I just couldn’t stop watching him prepping the cheese wheel to break it open — and because I just discovered there’s a thing called Channel Cheese TV on YouTube. An entire channel about cheese! I’m doomed.


Some People In The 19th Century Called Brunch 'Blunch'

There are all kinds of dark alternate histories to think about. What if the Nazis had won World War II? What if the doomsday prophecies about 2012 had made any sense? And what if brunch had actually been called blunch?


Magnets Are The Secret To The Ultimate Cookie-Dunking Contraption

For every Kickstarted product that succeeds and makes it into the hands of consumers, there are hundreds that don’t. The Dunkin’ Buddy’s Kickstarter campaign unfortunately didn’t succeed in raising $US10,000 earlier this year, but its creators realise how important its existence is to mankind, and they’re determined to get it into production anyways.


Compressing Containers Squeeze The Air Out Of Your Stored Food

Anyone who’s squeezed every last molecule of air out of a Ziploc bag full of leftovers knows that food lasts longer that way. But instead of man-handling a plastic bag, or buying some kind of vacuum contraption to get the air out, consider upgrading your canisters to Prepara’s new Evak line which features a manual piston to eradicate O2.


See The Difference That Missing One Ingredient Can Make In Baking A Cake

Baking a cake is a labour of love but also just basic chemistry, you’re mixing ingredients together and making it react into something typically delicious. But each ingredient is important! Leaving out eggs or baking powder or butter can change the cake dramatically. Here’s what a cake looks like without one of those ingredients.


Are Insects The Future Of Food?

Emily Anthes braves locusts, beetles, mealworms and more as she asks whether eating insects is the answer to feeding ever more humans and livestock. At first, my meal seems familiar, like countless other dishes I’ve eaten at Asian restaurants. A swirl of noodles slicked with oil and studded with shredded chicken, the aroma of ginger and garlic, a few wilting chives placed on the plate as a final flourish.


Giz Explains: What Are Artificial Sweeteners Really Doing To Our Bodies?

They’re what stimulate your sweet tooth without adding girth to your waistline; they give diet colas and sugar-free snacks a saccharine kick without the consequences. At least that’s the idea. But these sweeteners have been the subject of hoaxes and misinformation for years, slowly discrediting their wondrous health claims. Can you really, as Dr Susan Swithers of Purdue University quips, “have your fake cake and eat it, too?”


This Jet Engine Is Actually A Grill That Automatically Rotates Your Food

It only makes sense that a barbecue that looks like a jet engine fallen off a plane is called the Jet Grill, but — and some of you might be disappointed in this — it doesn’t cook your meats via some high-powered afterburner. The design and functionality is still clever, though, as it harnesses rising heat to keep your food constantly turning and grilling evenly without the need for a powered motor.
