Since 1924, Bit-O-Honey candy has been sticking to the teeth of giggly American children and adults. The iconic wax paper-wrapped candy is made with almond bits blended in honey-flavored taffy. At first, the candy is hard and somewhat tasteless, but as you chew the taffy softens and the delectable flavors of nutty almonds and sweet honey are unleashed. Bit-O-Honey is a gluten-free, low-fat and low-calorie treat the entire family will enjoy so get your toothbrushes ready and dig in to this chewy bite of Americana!

McDonald's 3 Piece Mozzarella Sticks: Dollar Menu Star

McDonald's has recently revamped their Dollar Menu & More with an exciting new addition, 3 Piece Mozzarella Sticks with marinara sauce!

Whenever McDonald's releases a new menu item, it's safe to assume that they spent hundreds of hours perfecting the taste in a food laboratory, and that seems to be the case with these cheesy bites. The balance of flavors is spot on and we were left wanting more! The cheese in the stick has a nice creamy and rich mozzarella flavor and the texture is gooey but firm. The breading is nicely spiced with Italian seasonings and has an appealing crunchy bite. The marinara sauce is spectacular with the perfect amount of tanginess and sweetness and a noticeable hint of garlic. The best part about McDonald's Mozzarella Sticks is that they are only $1, which is a real bargain given the fact that restaurant cheese sticks will set you back anywhere from $5-10 depending on where you go.

These hot snacks have taken center stage on the Dollar Menu & More so make sure you try 'em out!

UPDATE: We wrote about these a year ago as we were apparently in a test market area when we found them. But McDonald's has recently announced that these cheesy treats will soon be available nationwide as part of their Dollar Menu & More!

Halloween Cookies Recipe: BLOODY WITCH FINGERS!

Get ready to terrorize your guests this Halloween with this spooktacular Bloody Witch Fingers recipe! We first conjured up these ghastly treats several years ago and this recipe really stands the test of time. Your Halloween guests will never forget the moment you fed them these delectably gruesome cookies!

Yield: about 5 dozen
1 cup salted butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 egg
2 tsp almond extract
2 tsp vanilla
2 2/3 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup whole blanched almonds
raspberry jelly

In a large bowl, beat together butter, sugar, egg, almond extract and vanilla. Stir dry ingredients together, then add to the wet ingredients and stir thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.

Working with one quarter of the dough at a time and keeping the remainder refrigerated, roll a scant tablespoon full (you can use a 1 oz. cookie scoop) of dough into a thin log shape about 4" long for each cookie. Squeeze close to center and close to one end to create knuckle shapes. Press almond firmly into the end of the cookie for nail. Using paring knife, make slashes in several places to form knuckle. You want them a bit thin and gangly looking, since they'll puff a little when you bake them. 

Place on lightly greased baking sheets (or use silicone sheets or parchment); bake in 325°F oven for 20-25 minutes or until pale golden. Let cool for a few minutes.

Meanwhile, melt jelly over low heat in a small saucepan. Carefully lift almond off of each finger, spoon a tiny amount of jelly onto nail bed and press almond back in place so the jelly oozes out from underneath. You can also make slashes in the finger and fill them with "blood" or slice the ends off, to get a good severed look, and dip them into the jelly.

PEPSI PERFECT FAIL: Fans Furious Over Botched 'Back to the Future' Release!


It was supposed to be a fun and exciting gift to die hard Pepsi fans on Back to the Future Day. Earlier this month, Pepsi announced it would be releasing a very limited edition batch of Pepsi Perfect, the Pepsi of the future as seen in the 1989 blockbuster hit movie "Back to the Future Part II." Pepsi publicized that the bottles would be sold online on October 21st for $20.15, reflecting the date and year the movie takes place. Pepsi even teased the release with an updated website and a glossy, beautifully produced Pepsi Perfect commercial.

Things went awry, however, at the stroke of midnight on the 21st when fans realized that Pepsi had already sold out of the product on Amazon.com and Walmart.com, after the retro-bottles went on sale earlier than expected, on October 20th.

It wasn't long before greedy sellers began selling Pepsi Perfect for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Furious fans took to social media, expressing their displeasure with what Pepsi had done.

In an attempt to make things right, Pepsi later tweeted their intention to fix their blooper with another release on 11/3. We'll see then if they can turn this ship around, and save some face on the Twittersphere:
