Due to a rapid-fire barrage of novel new flavors, Snacktaku has instituted a temporary moratorium on Oreo videos. But then they had to go and drag apple pie into this. Fine, Nabisco, but you’re not getting a video. Let’s talk Apple Pie Oreos.
There is a place that is both before and beyond bacon, and Arby’s dares take us there, at least for a limited time. Whatever other plans Snacktaku had this week died at the feet of Arby’s Smokehouse Pork Belly sandwich.
Just because you are a bigger-than-normal person doesn’t mean you can’t get a gaming chair that looks and feels like you salvaged it from a wrecked race car. Clutch Chairz’ Throttle gaming chair is rolling, butt-gripping proof.
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.
One of the most requested snacks in Snacktaku history has us convinced you really, really hate us. Even Logo Ghost is afraid of Key Lime Slime Twinkies, and he’s already dead.
When Kellogg’s and the Dr. Pepper Snapple company announced they would be collaborating on a pair of soda-flavored Pop-Tarts, we here at Snacktaku scoffed. You should have heard the scoffing. It was Olympic-level scoffing. Now, having eaten them, we feel a little bad about it.
Ah, springtime. A time when young men’s thoughts turn to the sweeter things in life, like milk chocolate molded eggs filled with white and yellow fondant, the world’s tastiest faux embryo—the Cadbury Creme Egg. A snack I once held in the highest regard, though as of late our relationship has changed.
Only the dedicated food scientists at Nabisco could create a chocolate and cream cookie that tastes slightly different from another chocolate and cream cookie. Or maybe a cupcake? It’s hard to say.
It’s March 14, 2016, also known as Rounded Pi Day. Chances of me ever eating six pies for a Snacktaku video again are incredibly slim, so here’s a replay of last year’s Ultimate Pi Day celebration for your dining pleasure.
A cornerstone of snack culture, popcorn is a light and fluffy snack that’s relatively harmless to eat by the handful. At least until a company like Pop Works & Co. starts putting delicious stuff all over it.
The Snacktaku staff put many, many things in its mouth during the past year—at least one thing a day—in order to bring you this, the ultimate list of bad things that tasted good in 2015.
“It smells like old people,” my wife said as I handed her a slice hacked from the Walmart-made fruit cake ring. “Does it taste like old people?” I asked. She took a bite. “No.” I stared accusingly. “How do you know what old people taste like?”
In a holiday season awash with pumpkin-flavoring spice, gingerbread and caramel apple, Hostess foregoes the dominant fall flavors in favor of a pair of special edition snack cakes colored and flavored like toothpaste. Mmmm, minty.
As snackers around the world prepare for one of the most important holidays of the year—the day after Halloween—Snacktaku celebrates the only flavor combination powerful enough to knock pumpkin spice off the fall charts.
Not content with selling tins of meat/gelatin hybrid, Hormel is now rolling out new dried Spam Snacks to select U.S. markets, including the Southeast. Guess where I am? If you said oily hell, you’re pretty close.
Later this month potato chip fans from around the country will vote the determine which of these flavors is worth a million dollars. This is going to be a tough one.
At some point it dawned on Pizza Hut executives that sometimes people don’t want to eat pizza. Affixing foods people might want to eat more than pizza—say, hot dog bites—is not the most elegant solution.
Having made the rounds in Canada, the UK and Australia since 2012, Pizza Hut is finally bringing its bizarre hot dog stuffed crust pizza to U.S. stores later this month. Tentative hooray!
