The Internet is a black hole for strange, weird and wonderful things—especially when it comes to food. Rather than dive in yourself, let F&W do it for you. Here, four of the most absurd food items we saw this week.
Mac-and-Cheese-Stuffed Bacon Taco: Every time you think fatty food hybrids have reached their peak, some mad scientist (or just a very drunk insomniac) comes up with a new, crazier creation. Nick Chipman of Dude Foods engineered the Double Decker Mac & Cheese Stuffed Bacon Weave Taco. It’s two taco shells made out of woven bacon held together with macaroni and cheese and stuffed with typical taco fillings: ground beef, lettuce, tomato, cheese (because it needs more cheese).
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Insane Sandwich: The original Terminator (you probably know him as the former governor of California) doesn’t play around when it comes to sandwiches. You might even say he pumps (clap) them up. He recently partnered with Epic Meal Time to make the Steak & Egger Sandwich, a 78,583-calorie breakfast sammie made with a crazy amount of bacon, a massive slab of sausage, cheese and ostrich eggs cooked on the surface of Schwarzenegger’s personal military-style tank. How do you know it’s his tank? His name is on the side.
Cola-Flavored Milk: Kikkoman (known primarily in the U.S. as the soy sauce in every pantry) recently released a new soy milk flavored that's supposed to taste like cola. Apparently chocolate was just too tame. The brand makes a variety of flavored soy milks including sesame, grapefruit and roasted sweet potato.
Ice Cream Cleanse: This may signal the end of the juice cleanse craze. A company called Kippy’s now offers a complete ice cream cleanse. For $240, you get four days’ worth of “healthy” ice creams like dark chocolate with Himalayan fire salt, bee pollen-packed Superfood and spicy Master Cleanse. According to the Gizmodo writer who tried it, the cleanse did sort of work—both he and his girlfriend lost weight—but he’s not planning on doing it again any time soon.
The World’s Tiniest Sushi: A Tokyo sushi chef is making miniscule bites of sushi consisting of tiny slivers of fish delicately placed on a single grain of rice. The chef, Hironori Ikeno, adds microscopic amounts of seasoning for flavor and even manages to wrap the tamago in a teeny sliver of nori.
