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.
Croissant-Bagel Hybrid: If you thought that the end of 2013 meant the end of hybrid foods, you were wrong. Connecticut and New York grocery store Stew Leonard’s recently released the Crogel. A cross between a croissant and a bagel, the Crogel is croissant dough that bakers cut into a shape of a bagel, which is then boiled and baked.
Jupiter Fries: Earth french fries are good but according to a new study published in Food Research International, Jupiter french fries would be, excuse the pun, out of this world. Researchers used a custom-build deep fryer to make fries under gravitational forces that ranged from 1.8 to 9 times that of the Earth. They found that the optimal conditions for creating delicious fries was 3 Gs (three times that of Earth’s gravity, which is equal to the force of gravity on Jupiter).
