  • EZGrill: The $5 single-use grill

    I live on the top floor of a third-floor walkup with no balcony in the middle of Boston. That doesn’t mean I don’t like grilling, though. Granted, I can’t really grill nor do I have any use for a grill, but maybe someday I’ll want to grill somewhere else. What? Now I have to buy a grill? What the hell do I need a grill for if I’m only going to use it once or twice… Read More

  • PSA: Tomorrow is National Donut Day

    Tomorrow is National Donut Day. I love donuts. I feel no personal shame. Donuts and my body mesh well together. If I had an ideal food, it would be donuts. If you like donuts even half as much as I do, you’ll be happy to know that you can get a free donut at Dunkin’ Donuts and/or Krispy Kreme tomorrow. I’m sure you’ll be able to get other deals at your local donut shops… Read More

  • Video Review: Batter Blaster pancakes in a can

    I took a deep personal interest in Batter Blaster when I first covered it way back in October of 2007. At that time it was only available in the San Francisco area and, after what seemed like eons, I finally saw Batter Blaster in a grocery store here in Boston last night. Hit the jump to check out a video review of the Batter Blaster pancakes in a can. Read More

  • Woman finds cell phone in bag of chips

    A Wisconsin woman opened a bag of Clancy’s Ripple Potato Chips and found a super old Nokia cell phone inside. Ewww! Who uses a Nokia that old?! I mean, ewww, a cell phone in a bag of chips!

  • Perhaps pizza vending machines are why America is so fat

    Let’s not split hairs: the United States of America is an awesomely fat country. A full 26 percent of Americans were considered obese in 2007—by 2048 nearly every single American (statistically, at least) will be obese. We’re not even talking about “yeah, I can stand to lose a few pounds,” but medically obese. And this is just a guess, but could things like this… Read More

  • Trongs: Get a grip on finger food

    BW3, my local wing joint, has an all-you-can-eat special for $10. Of course, I’m a sloppy eater, and wind up with spicy garlic sauce all over me whenever I eat wings.

If only someone would invent some kind of gripper to allow me to eat wings without… Read More
