Edible Memo Pads

Edible Memo PadsHoch Fun-Food, the German confectioner that's refining the art of edible paper, is now marketing it's latest offering, an edible memo pad, under its Monster brand.

Distributed to the USA by Chicago Importing Co., the package contains a food coloring ink pen and Hoch's edible wafer paper. Kids can now pass notes to each other in class, and eat the evidence before the teacher confiscates it.

Perhaps we're not that far from the days when kids can finally proclaim with confidence, "My dog ate my homework".

Hoch Fun-Food is the same company that makes the Edible Easter Grass we covered previously on our sister blog.

Mrs. Freshley's Snack Away Cakes

Mrs. Freshley's Snack Away CakesIf a Twinkie happens to be your poison of choice, you might try comparing them to Mrs. Freshley's new Snack Away Cakes.

It's billed as a healthier alternative to the real mccoy, offering 140 calories per cake, as opposed to 150 calories. Not much of a change.

But it does claim to include no added sugar.

What's interesting is that the name, "Snack Away" seems to suggest that you can scarf down several of these with the comfort of knowing that you're eating something better. Better? You may as well eat a real Twinkie.

Frankford's Make Your Own Gummy CandyPhiladelphia, PA-based Frankford Candy and Chocolate Co. is now offering a line of "Make Your Own Gummy" candies.

You don't actually make the gummy candies, but rather, they give you gummy candy pieces that you combine together to make things. For example, this Ice Cream variety gives you gummy ice cream scoops, gummy ice cream cones, and gummy ice cream toppings. You put it all together for extreme gummy madness.

They also offer "Pizza" and "Cookies" in the same line.

Boy Girl Beef Sticks

Boy Girl Beef SticksGone are the days when fathers handed out cigars in celebration of their new born baby. These days, they hand out sticks of mechanically separated beef.

Actually, I don't really know if these Boy Girl Beef Sticks are from "mechanically separated beef", but considering they're labeled as "beef sticks", I'm guessing they are. Besides, I wouldn't have it any other way!

But since it's no longer politically correct to hand out cancer sticks, handing out sticks of rendered left-overs is perhaps the next best thing to celebrating the miracle of life in a manly way.

You can order a 24-count jar for just $19.95.

Thanks CandyAddict.

Jimmy Dean Chocolate Chip Pancakes & Sausage on a Stick

Jimmy Dean Chocolate Chip Pancakes & Sausage on a StickThe Jimmy Dean brand of breakfast food won my nod of approval when I found this lovely new entry.

Pancakes & Sausage on a Stick Chocolate Chip pretty much takes what my wife often eats at IHOP and puts it all on a hand-held form factor, allowing junk-foodies like us to revel in frozen food fanatacism.

Better yet, these are microwaveable, so just nukem and pukem.

Muhammad Ali Launches Snack Food Company

GOAT Food CompanyThe heavyweight champion boxer who claimed to "float like a butterfly and sting like a bee" launched his own snack food and beverage company called, "GOAT Food & Beverage Company".

GOAT (which stands for Greatest Of All Time), was meant to provide kids with healthy options over the standard fare of potato chips, candies, and sodas.

The new company, a partnership with Muhammad Ali and brand inventor Peter Arnell, is partnering with Mars Incorporated and its innovative Health and Nutrition group to produce reduced calorie foods and beverages said to feature fruit laden rolls and finger foods baked in vaguely signature shapes like boxing gloves and punching bags, and to be offered in flavors like barbecued chicken, buffalo wings, sweet corn, and cole slaw.

Due to be released in early 2007 is the company's first line of snacks, the "Shuffle Snack", a mix of shapes, colors and textures, containing only 35 fat calories compared to 111 for a comparable portion of potato chips. It'll be targeted toward young adults, 16 to 24 year olds. The snack is intended to be eaten throughout the day, in seven "rounds", with "round" five being late in the day when people may need a vitamin-rich pick-me-up.

Ben & Jerry's American Pie

Ben & Jerry's American PieBen & Jerry's has a new flavor out called, "American Pie", which also happens to be a politically motivated flavor as well.

American Pie is an apple flavored ice cream loaded with pieces of apples and pie crust. But what sets it apart from the rest is that the lid on the carton displays a pie-chart illustrating a message that Ben & Jerry's wants to point out to every American.

The message is part of their newly launched "Federal Budget Priorities Campaign". It's a media campaign where the executives at Ben & Jerry's want the federal government to cut military defense spending and spend more more on entitlement programs.

The popular brand, which has long been associated with left-wing causes, reestablishes its activist history, with references to the War on Terror...
The goal is to heighten awareness of the billions of dollars the Pentagon spends on nuclear weapons vs. a shortfall of spending on basic unmet needs of children. The campaign points out that we have options that won't diminish our nation's ability to fight global terrorism or a foreign foe.
In addition, the company is setting up a postcard writing campaign at all Ben & Jerry's store locations where customers can send a note to Congress urging lawmakers to listen to Ben & Jerry's.

Ben & Jerry's return to social awareness comes on the heels of a publicity blunder, when it pissed off thousands of Irish Americans for launching its "Black & Tan Ice Cream" on St. Patrick's Day, the day when Irish celebrate their heritage. While the flavor was meant to celebrate the famous beer beverage, it instead reminded Irish folks of the atrocities they suffered at the hands of the English. The company later issued an apology after the matter was publicized by Reuters.

This Sunday is National Ice Cream Day

girl eating ice creamDon't forget that this Sunday (July 16) is National Ice Cream Day.

It was actually in 1984, that President Ronald Reagan designated the third Sunday in July as National Ice Cream Day, and called for people to observe the day with "appropriate ceremonies and activities."

So, it's not some lop-sided shindig that one company came up with.

That means it's our patriotic duty to pay homage to that great American institution: little boys and girls slurping ice cream cones on a hot July weekend.

I'm making it a point to do so, are you?

Chocolate That Doesn't Melt

Live Science reports that food scientists at the Cocoa Research Institute of Nigeria have developed a type of chocolate that resists melting in temperatures up to 122°F.

But better yet, they claim that results from taste tests show that they're new product is actually favorable when compared to real milk chocolate.

S.O. Ogunwolu and C.O. Jayeola, food scientists at the Cocoa Research Institute of Nigeria, have mixed cornstarch with cocoa to produce a heat-resistant chocolate that they say compares "favorably with conventional milk chocolate in terms of color, taste, smoothness and overall acceptability."

The starch acts as a chocolate thickener and prevents the outflow of cocoa butter-the natural fat of the cocoa bean-when the heat is on. The researchers found that using 10 percent starch was ideal and produced a product that was comparable to milk chocolate in taste tests.

The report goes on to say that heat resistant chocolate has been developed before, including one that Hershey made that could hold up to 140° temperatures. But the problem was that it wouldn't melt in your mouth.

However, the Nigerian team isn't so much concerned about competiting against the joys of real milk chocolate. They only want to introduce chocolate to African consumers, which apparently doesn't have the luxury of air conditioning, and hence, doesn't eat chocolate.

I suppose the Pop Tarts product is one of those things that has to be reinvented over-and-over just to keep itself from falling into obsolescence in a market that's heavily saturated with gimmicky children's snacks.

You Say "Yogourt" I Say "Yogurt"

Breyers Frozen YogourtI came across this new product from the Breyers brand of frozen yogurt, and noticed the odd spelling, "Yogourt". Then I noticed that this product is marketed in Canada.

I was aware that yogurt is often spelled "yoghurt", with the additional "h". But I wasn't aware that that folks in Canada, and I presume in Britain and other commonwealths, spell it with the additional "o".

I guess it's just like how they spell other words incorrectly, like "colour" and "analyse".

Wendy's Makes Chicken Even Hotter

Wendy'sWendy's International Inc. announced today that it plans to offer customers who order a Spicy Chicken Sandwich the opportunity to spice it up with a slice of pepper jack cheese.

The offer is running now for a limited time at most all Wendy's locations.

The promotion is a precursor to the company's newest sandwich, "4-Alarm Spicy Chicken Sandwich" which they're planning to test-market in a few areas later this month.

The 4-Alarm Spicy Chicken Sandwich is built on the same chassis as the Spicy Chicken Sandwich, but includes the pepper jack cheese, along with sliced jalapenos, and chipotle sauce.

Wendy's is going full steam ahead with its new line of hot foul offerings after their Spicy Chicken Sandwich became one of the chain's most popular items. McDonald's tried to capture some of the success with its Spicy McChicken, but failed and eventually pulled the item off their menu. Wendy's Spicy Chicken Sandwich has become so popular that people have posted recipes online trying to duplicate the same taste.

The trend towards spicy sandwiches is getting hotter all the time, as evidenced by such new entries like Carl's Jr. new Jalapeno Burger, White Castle's Chipotle Chicken Sandwich, and Red Robin's Chili Chili Cheeseburger.

Mix 'N Magic - Super Sports Power Potion

Mix 'N Magic - Super Sports Power PotionThe Mix N' Magic line of candy-filled bracelets is now available in a new variety, "Super Sports Power Potion".

Of course, the new variety is not really any different than the other varieties; it's all the same candy, just different names.

But what's new with this one is that the candy now includes energy boosting properties, instead of just plain old "good luck" as with the other varieties. I imagine this claim is a little more realistic.

Check out what the package says...

"Our Magical Potions give you that extra burst of energy before the big game or test, or that bit of luck that you may need in a special relationship. For best results, wear your bracelet for several days and let the colors mix as you wear them. Just before you need that boost, disconnect one end of the bracelet and eat the magical contents."

The package also goes on to explain the different colors that make up their new Super Sports Power Potion...

"Secret Magic Super Sports Potion - 2 parts red (red is the color of physical energy, passion, courage and power) - 2 parts blue (blue is the color of balance, intuition, inspiration and faith in oneself) - 1 part green (green is the color of learning, growth, prosperity and good fortune) - 2 parts orange (orange is the color of joy, enthusiasm, confidence and creativity) - 1 part purple (purple positively effects our spirituality and life force energy)."

Not sure where you can get these; their website says they'll be in stores soon. I'm getting the feeling they're already in stores, and that their website is out of date.
