In its latest attempt to replace all foods with processed potato product, Pringles takes on Thanksgiving dinner with eight different flavors—turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, macaroni and cheese and creamed corn. We’d say grace first, but no.
Kirby is cute. Buns are cute. It’s only natural that Kirby buns would be very, very cute.
Lotteria, the most ridiculous fast food chain in Japan, is releasing a striking steak burger later this month.
Every year around this time, the schools near Atlanta where I live invite parents to join their children and germ-covered classmates in the cafeteria to enjoy a wondrous Thanksgiving repast. It might not look like much, but boy does it not look like much.

On October 21, Arby’s brings deer meat to the masses, selling a limited number of venison sandwiches at its more than 3,300 U.S. locations. Not trusting our ability to wake up before noon on a Saturday, Snacktaku hit up Arby’s headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia for an early taste test.

An ill-fated trip through the local Wendy’s drive through yesterday resulted in room temperature fries, the wrong size drink and confirmation of my children’s suspicions that not all chicken nuggets are created equal.
