One Picture Shows Why America is Fat

30 May

An eagle-eyed Reddit user posted this picture earlier this week. It shows Mountain Dew A.M., a new beverage choice consisting of half Mountain Dew and half orange juice. Thankfully, it’s only served until 11 a.m. Coming soon to a Taco Bell by you!

Cause otherwise that would be disgusting.

I wish this was a joke, but a company spokesman confirmed the rollout in Southern California to Fox News. “”Our customers love Mountain Dew and it’s one of our most popular beverages, so we are testing Mtn Dew AM in Fresno and Southern California as the latest innovation to our FirstMeal Menu.  We’re pleased with the initial reaction from our customers, and if it does well, we’ll roll it out to all our restaurants that serve breakfast,” Rob Poetsch, Taco Bell spokesman, said in an email.

More than 32 percent of Americans could be obese by 2030, with 11 percent severely obese (more than 100 pounds over a healthy weight).

Thankfully, we still have the freedom to drink what we want.

Pizza Beer Exists

24 Jan

In what has to be one of the oddest flavor profiles for beer ever made, Tom and Athena Seefurth invented “Pizza Beer” on Labor Day 2006. The couple had a surplus of tomatoes, garlic and a dream to create a beer that would pair well with many different types of food.

After surfing around the Internet, they found a recipe they liked and began brewing. They added basil and oregano to impart some pizza spice flavor. Here they describe the brewing process on their website:

The Margarita pizza is put into the mash & steeped like a tea bag. A whole wheat crust made with water, flour & yeast is topped with tomato, oregano, basil & garlic. The essence of the pizza spices is washed off with hot water and filtered into a brewpot, where it is boiled for a long, long time. During the process, we add hops & spices in a cheesecloth type bag & filter the cooled liquid into a fermentation vessel. (big glass 6 gallon water jug).

You can buy the finished product online at Malloy’s Finest Wine & Spirits.
