There are a lot of nightmarish things about KFC, including but not limited to mutant chickens and a sandwich where the bread is chicken filets. Now KFC is owning the darker, crispier parts of its brand with a new VR horror game that’s become a “bizarre initiation rite” for new employees, according to Eater.
Of course they do. Japan is famous for interesting Kit Kat flavors, and this latest one might be the most unusual one yet.
On paper, all three finalist flavors in Lay’s 2017 “Do Us A Flavor” potato chip contest—Crispy Taco, Fried Green Tomato and Everything Bagel—sound pretty delicious. But until science makes words edible, we’re forced to eat actual potato chips in order to determine this year’s winner.
Splatoon 2's first post-launch Splatfest kicks off tomorrow, and fans are passionately rallying for their favorite the upcoming Mayo Vs. Ketchup battle. Snacktaku removes passion and common sense from the equation to try and determine a winner using the magic of snack science.
Japanese noodle maker Nissin just announced a new Cup Noodle called “Black Seafood” that looks incredibly similar to a recently released game. Hrm. I wonder which one...
What happens when the world’s favorite brand of stack-able potato crisps meets Nissin’s popular line of Japanese-style survival rations? Lots of people tilt their heads and go “huh,” for starters. Also, I make a Snacktaku video.

Last week, McDonald’s Japan asked folks to guess which Pokémon-themed McFlurry it was releasing, such as a habanero Charmander McFlurry or a broccoli Bulbasaur one. The correct answer was a chocolate banana Pikachu treat.

One of the best-preserved streets in Kyoto is Ninen-zaka. A Starbucks just opened in the area, but you could walk by and not even know it.
Friday, June 2, was National Doughnut Day in the States, the day we celebrate fried sweet dough, torus-shaped and otherwise. Nabisco celebrated this joyous holiday by reminding us that there’s nothing quite like a warm jelly doughnut, especially not a creme-filled sandwich cookie.

You hungry? Like really, really hungry? Well, have I got a meal for you.
You know what I could really go for right now? A stale melted Jolly Rancher sandwich. How about you guys?
In the hierarchy of things you don’t put in your mouth, fireworks are right up there with razor blades and hobos, but nothing will stand in the way of Nabisco’s relentless quest to keep Snacktaku from eating things that aren’t Oreos.
It was inevitable. Someone looked at some Slime shaped lids and thought they might mold some spectacular breast cheese cake.
