What the World Eats

I saw this post on wordpress’s front page, and I fell in love with it immediately. It describes the food habits of people the world over, and is completely amazing. Some people seem to get so little for their money, while some people get plates and plates for basically nothing in american dollars. This could be due to an agrarian society, however. Anyway- Click on it!

Yarr…and the octodog was too much for me…

…that’s where I got me peg leg…

Are your children JUST NOT HAPPY with plain hot dogs? Then you should obviously get the Octodog, the “Fun, simple and safer (?) way to turn ordinary hot dogs into exciting to cook and super fun to eat octodogs”. Sure, it’s phallic. But so are half of foods. I’m considering getting one of these just to suprise/horrify/amaze everyone around me…but, as a friend just said, “I’ll only be giving my children flat sandwiches”.

Comsmopolitan KitKats: Flavors from Japan

Weird Food Products

Jess: Just when you think you really know everything about Kit-Kats, a product from Japan sets your opinions reeling. At Mitsuwa Marketplace we discovered these Kit-Kats in green tea and caramel flavoring. Perhaps unsurprisingly, they weren’t worth the four dollars we paid for them. When opening the caramel Kit-Kat’s package, you got a definate and lovely smell of caramel. Like caramel delicious enough to make you into an enraged ape diving for the Kit-Kat like it was some sublime banana. Unfortunately, the caramel Kit-Kat is a tease. It lied to us–to me. There was almost no caramel flavor.

The green tea one was even more of a rip off, at four dollars and no green tea flavor. At least they were beautiful, as James Houde’s photos let us see. At least.
