What makes kids food kid foods? Is it a malleable set-up that encourages children to play with their crackers and pasta? Or, perhaps, it’s brightly-colored packaging with the contents within written out into burst shapes. Certainly, the market has trended toward healthier options as of late, but there still is very…
An on-going excavation of a Swedish warship sunk in the 17th century recently yielded quite the haul. The newly found treasure includes gold coins, a diamond ring, and a 340-year-old pot of cheese. Truly, the ocean is full of wonders.
Our current solution to apples that start to soften (just bake them into a pie) has been working darn well. But a new method could give us apples that stay crisp for several weeks.
Keeping a tomato flavorful and firm past a few days is no easy task, as anyone who has made the catastrophic mistake of sticking a tomato in the fridge can attest. Now, new research could finally give us a much longer span of time to eat that tomato.
Earlier this year a video appeared online purportedly showing how you could turn a lemon into a simple battery, and then use it to start a fire by igniting a piece of steel wool. It was similar to a simple science experiment we all tried in grade school, but going one step further to make fire? That’s where the…
The United States wastes over 140 trillion calories of perfectly good food every year. A national survey just provided a comprehensive overview of the reasons we waste so much—and one of the most common ones is based on a total misconception.
Drought is spreading across farmland worldwide—and it’s only going to get more intense. New research offers a clue on how we might be able to continue to grow the staples we’re used to but with much less water.
The unfortunate truth of peering into our collective past is that eventually, something intolerant rears its head. For example, this pancake recipe found and cooked by 18th century cooking aficionado Jonathan Townsend doesn’t call the griddle treats pancakes at all—they’re “Indian slapjacks.”
Wonder Bread is already semi-miraculous: It’s impossibly soft, sweet, and shelf-stable. But unlocking the true potential inside this fluffy stuff results in a substance nearly impervious to heat and electricity, not dissimilar from what used to cover the exterior of spacecraft.
The latest addition to Astonishing Studio’s line of “sets Lego should really be making” is a miniature Pizza Hut that dispenses personal pan pizzas after you feed it five dollars using a working currency slot. Imagine having pizza on-demand at your desk at all times, suddenly you’ll look forward to going to work.
I’ll take an unagi roll, some tuna nigiri, and a side of lies, please.
It’s been a wild couple of days and we’re not going to talk about it at all here.
The great grudge match of bread spreads—butter vs. margarine—has a new champion. After several decades of inexplicable margarine-dominance, the trend has finally flipped in butter’s favor.
Steve1989—who we previously watched eat a piece of actual civil war history—has a penchant for consuming rare and obscure military rations. Today he decided to scarf down several meals intended for the Spetsnaz (Russian special forces) for when those troops are traveling through mountains. It’s hearty. It’s weird. And…
A huge vertical farm—where crops are planted, grown, and harvested all with neither sun nor soil—is being built in New Jersey. When it’s finished, it will be the largest one in the world.
By 2026, there’s going to be a lot less hunger worldwide—and that’s something to celebrate. The reason is not that we’re growing more food, however. Food is just getting cheaper.
The most important meal of the day is also the most annoying to make because you’re groggy and in a rush and haven’t had your cup of coffee yet. Genius men Peter Browne and Mervyn Huggett solved that eternal problem of making breakfast by building a machine to, well, make breakfast for them. Yep, like in Pee Wee’s Big…
The world is drying up all around us, but which crops can we use to shift the blame away from our cars, pools, and cartons of almond milk? Cast your eyes hard on these two culprits, right in your very own kitchen cabinet.
Food is one of the pieces of common ground that people of all cultures share. Food is the one language we’re all forced to speak. And then there’s Steve1989 MREinfo. He just likes to eat really old military rations. It’s kind of his thing.
Standard remedies for a hangover are generally limited to greasy food, a strong cup of coffee, or more booze. Order those mozzarella sticks from bed, because we’ve got the other two covered. You can thank us later.
