We're not running out to buy any of this
Aug 8, 2014 11:00 am

What happens when a few Americans with level two Upright Citizens Brigade training are given some international varieties of soda (or is it called pop?) courtesy of BuzzFeed? Some sour faces, some spit-takes, some jokes about phallic-shaped packing. And that’s only in the first 90 seconds. See what they think of soda (or is it called pop?) from Austria, Cuba, United Kingdom and, heck, one from the United States.

As someone who’s eaten everything from guinea pig to grasshoppers, I like to think of myself as an adventurous eater. Last week I had a chance to attend two events that even I would define as extreme. If the idea of porcupine appeals, perhaps I can change your mind.

Cat Cafes, Zombie Food Trucks And The Future Of Popular, And Revolting, Dining

Five ideas that sounded great on paper, but...
Feb 18, 2014 10:00 am

2013 saw its fair share of revolting themed food. A hospital-themed restaurant in Latvia with body-part-look-a-like food and a toilet-themed place in L.A. made our hit-list of places to avoid.

It’s 8:30 in the morning and I’ve just walked into an art gallery dressed for a workout. Others are milling about in shorts and leggings, sweat bands around their heads and wrists. And in each hand, a jar of heavy cream. Welcome to Feel the Churn: the first ever butter-making aerobics class.
