Which of these Ridiculously Shocking New Snacks Do You Want?

Anything alcohol-infused is brilliant in our book. The (rather ridiculously named) popcorn company Populence teamed up with a New Zealand winemaker to create a "Sauvignon Blanc Kettle" that incorporates wine into the recipe. According to the site, "the sweet popcorn's final flavor is bright and zesty and pairs beautifully with the wine." Unfortunately, a 1 Gallon Tin will set you back $35. But on the bright side, wine popcorn isn't as bad on the snack scale as, say, Cheetos and beer. And there's something satisfyingly classy about being able to pull a Sauvignon Blanc-flavored snack from your pantry the next time you host a shindig.   read more

Does the Grand Canyon Make My Ass Look Fat?

National parks around the country are havens of natural beauty and historic significance, but until now, that description never jived with the food sold at concession stands in places like the Grand Canyon or the Statue of Liberty. (Unless you count hot dogs under heat lamps for a questionable amount of time as "history.") The National Park Service recently introduced new food standards for concession stands at all national parks, calling for healthy options like fruit and vegetables, smaller portion sizes, low-sodium and low-fat meals, and non-sugary drinks to be added to menus.   read more

New Diet Alert: Women Are Sewing Patches on Their Tongues So They Can't Eat

Go ahead and file this one under horrifying-new-weight loss-trends: The Tongue Patch Diet.

How does it work? Well, your friendly neighborhood plastic surgeon applies a postage stamp-sized piece of mesh to the surface of your tongue. The result? Eating becomes horribly painful, so you're forced to give up solid food and stick to a liquid diet.   read more

I Made A 'Cronut'… And Made Myself Sick

The Dominique Ansel Bakery that created -- and trademarked -- the pop culture phenomenon that is the "cronut" (a croissant-donut hybrid, in case you missed the recent craze) happens to be five blocks from my apartment in New York City. Sadly, that doesn't make me any more likely to get one. There's no preferential treatment for neighbors. Heck, there's no preferential treatment for celebrities. (Rumor has it that Hugh Jackman had to wait on line for more than two hours for his cronuts.)   read more

The Most Famous Woman in the World Is Now a … Farmer?

If I were a media mogul worth $2.7 billion dollars, an organic farm in Hawaii would be at the top of my wish list -- after a Chanel bag and one of those massive closets you see on "Cribs." Sure, it's not everybody's idea of a dream purchase, but when you have that kind of cash -- and love food -- why not?   read more
