Next week in Japan, McDonald’s is rolling out a fries with a local flavor.
When I first moved to Japan at the turn of the century, I was told that noodle lovers need not fret about making slurping sounds while eating. Among some, that attitude is changing. There is now concern over “noodle harassment.”
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the Rihga Royal Hotel in Osaka has nine pairs of edible men’s shoes. They come in three different shades of leather (er, chocolate) and look like real shoes.
Snacktaku fans have been seeking our counsel on McDonald’s Grand Mac and Mac Jr. since the fast food restaurant started selling the limited-time size variants nationwide last month. Today we finally break our silence. Somebody drop us a beat.
Magikarp might be a useless Pokémon, but it certainly makes for a tasty snack!
This week in Tokyo, you can buy Kit Kat sushi. Dreams are real!
The two weeks are up, and it’s time to put Taco Bell’s new fried chicken taco shell creation into our mouths, for science. Sometimes science is pretty awesome. Believe it or not, this is one of those times.
After spending 2016 eating strange and horrible things, Snacktaku is kicking off the year on a high note. Let January 20, 2017 be forever known as the day Snacktaku ate Chocolate Strawberry Oreos, one of the best limited edition flavors in ages.
January 26 shall be known as the day the taco shell changed forever, or at least the day Taco Bell started folding up fried chicken patties and calling it a Naked Chicken Chalupa.
2016 was a year of dazzling heights and dismal lows in the realm of snackology. A year of fast food crossovers, foul cookie combinations, depression day doughnuts and election night tequila. Also we ate a thing that looked a lot like nightmare poop.
While I enjoy a good bun while eating a burger, really, who needs them? Especially when you swap them out for meat patties.
Snackology is often referred to by completely real people as the loneliest of the sciences, but it doesn’t have to be. Join me and a host of Kotaku guest stars in our poorly-lit home office as we eat one of the best non-cookie Oreo products yet.
Live from New York, it’s Snacktaku, featuring special guest Cecilia D’Anastasio. Watch us drink Starbucks’ Pokémon Go marketing tie-in as we ponder whether or not they skinned the Pokémon before grinding them up.
Not bad for only twenty minutes of work. Yes, eating this would be work.
Not every Thanksgiving meal is a lavish feast. In honor of those who find themselves alone or with meager means on America’s snackiest holiday, Snacktaku shares the traditional cheap-ass alternative, the turkey TV dinner.
You know, like, hamburgers with sushi in them. Yummy?
Japanese food looks beautiful. So do these cookies.
Is alcohol a snack? The answer is normally no, but there are exceptions. Is the alcohol in question a limited craft run of an oft-misunderstood Mexican classic, and are you drinking it on the same evening your country is going batshit insane? Then sure, why the hell not. Snack away.
