Taco Bell Naked Chicken Chips: NACHO ORDINARY NUGGETS!

Taco Bell continues its tradition of defying fast food convention with the world's first ever Naked Chicken Chips! For this new concoction, Taco Bell forms marinated all-white-meat chicken into tortilla chip shapes, fries them and serves them alongside nacho cheese sauce.

We recently sampled them and the chicken was flavorful and tender inside with a crispy, boldly seasoned coating that tasted great, especially when dipped in the spicy, hot nacho cheese sauce. Sure these are really just triangle-shaped chicken nuggets and cheese, but the brilliant way that Taco Bell has positioned them as "chicken chips" elevates them to something entirely new and exciting. We say give these spicy nibbles a try!

Naked Chicken Chips are available in packs of 6 or 12 or inside the Chickstar (a Crunchwrap filled with Naked Chicken Chips, lettuce, tomato, cheddar cheese and Avocado Ranch Sauce).

B&H Dairy Lunch New York City: AN AMERICAN RELIC!

Entering the quaint B&H Dairy Lunch in NYC's East Village is like stepping back in time. B&H Dairy opened in 1938 and is one of the last standing kosher vegetarian luncheonettes in the city. Known for their homemade soups, baked goods, salad platters, sandwiches, egg dishes and Eastern European comfort classics like pierogis and blintzes, this charming lunch counter is the perfect escape for a wholesome, home-cooked meal away from the bustle of Manhattan.

Although they claim "Better Health" on their sign, there is nothing light about the rib-sticking, satisfying food at B&H. And despite the fact that they are technically a vegetarian establishment, B&H offers seafood dishes for those craving protein. We tried the smoked white fish "Overstuffed" sandwich on challah bread and an order of pierogis with sour cream (two potato and two sauerkraut w/ mushroom). Everything tasted fresh and flavorful like something you'd eat at your grammy's house.

The highlight came at the end with our order of scrumptious pan fried blintzes, one filled with sweet ricotta cheese, one with bright blueberry pie filling and the other with tart cherry pie filling, all served with cool sour cream. We couldn't think of a more gleeful way to top our diner experience and we sauntered out of B&H Dairy imagining what we would enjoy the next time we inevitably return. As one Yelp reviewer perfectly stated, "This place is a secret factory of happiness."

Caramel M&M's: INSTANT STAR!

Mars Chocolate has finally created a new flavor of M&M's that hits it out of the park, Caramel M&M's! This new variety has a marvelous combination of chewy, creamy and crispy textures and the taste is instantly familiar and addictive. Imagine a classic Rolo caramel and chocolate chew coated in M&M's signature candy shell. The caramel itself has the perfect amount of chewiness with a delicate balance of sweet and salty, and it tastes amazing with Mar's smooth milk chocolate. We couldn't stop eating our Caramel M&M's and finished an entire large bag in record time. It's a wonder these weren't made years ago!

Caramel M&M's are destined for greatness. Grab yourself some today!

"It mostly works!"
                       - McDonald's

McDonald’s is promoting their new line of Signature Crafted Recipes sandwiches with a ridiculously genius new marketing gimmick, the FRORK! With the Frork, diners create their own fork using fries as prongs. The new sandwiches, which come in Pico Guacamole, Sweet BBQ Bacon or Maple Bacon Dijon varieties, are so loaded with toppings that McDonald's has supplied us with a Frork to fork up all the goodness that will inevitably fall out.

Does it work? Not really, but that's OK because the Frork is the kind of frivolous fun that'll brighten up your day for about 2 minutes. Even McDs admits the ludicrous nature of its own utensil by describing it as "USELESSLY USEFUL!"

To assemble your own Frork, squeeze the rubbery Frork open, insert three of your best, short stabby fries into the opening then release. We had fun making our Frork but we didn't really need to use it as our sandwich toppings didn't fall out. We kind of wish the Frork had permanent plastic fries as prongs instead of us having to use real fries, but that would take away from the interactive "play with your food" nature of the product.

Get your own Frork with the purchase of any Signature Crafted Recipes sandwich combo TODAY!

Twizzlers Orange Cream Pop Filled Twists: WORLD'S STRANGEST NEW CANDY!

We must begin by mentioning that classic strawberry Twizzlers is one of our least favorite food products on the planet. To us it tastes like raw flour or hard Play-Doh (flour is a main ingredient). We were feeling openminded, however, about sampling Twizzlers new Flavor of Florida Orange Cream Pop Filled Twists since we love Creamsicles and past Twizzlers variations have proven to be more palatable than the original. For this new variety, orange flavored licorice twists are filled with a cream flavored filling.

After just two bites of this imaginative confection, we knew it wasn't for us. Something about Orange Cream Pop Twizzlers made us feel uneasy and panicked and we later realized that's because eating it reminded us of going to the dentist. The flavor was less orange cream pop and more the orange fluoride the dental hygienist uses. The orange part of the candy was chewy with a waxy texture and the "cream" part had a gritty paste mouthfeel. Visually the candy reminded us of toothpaste or ointment coming out of a tube.

We did find the candy fascinating, however, and we couldn't stop commenting on how it was unlike anything we've ever had before. Despite the unpleasant experience, Twizzlers deserves some credit for making one of the strangest, most unique conversation pieces we've had in a long while.
