Pumpkin Spice Egg Nog Exists To Quench Public’s Infinite Pumpkin Spice Thirst

Remember when we featured the Creamsicle-flavored, Halloween-marketed, orange-colored TruMoo novelty milk and said, “At least it isn’t pumpkin spice”? Well, about that. In the novelty dairy beverage cooler at Walmart, right near the orange TruMoo, we found the newest and greatest holiday mashup: pumpkin spice egg nog. [More]

Orange-Flavored Halloween Milk Exists, Is Terrifying

There is one good thing that we can say about TruMoo’s holiday-themed flavored milks, and that is that they don’t have any high fructose corn syrup. Also, while the orange milk is orange-colored and Halloween-themed, it is not pumpkin spice flavored. After that, we’re pretty much out of nice things to say about it. [More]

Someone Made Craft Beer Jelly Because That Is Clearly What Peanut Butter Has Been Missing

Boxes Of Plain M&Ms That Really Contain Peanut Butter M&Ms Recalled

I think that peanut butter M&Ms are one of the tastiest invention in candy history, but not everyone agrees. Some people are allergic to peanuts, and some people just don’t like ’em.

Former Peanut Butter Moguls Found Guilty Of Knowingly Shipping Contaminated Food

Remember the massive outbreak of salmonella in peanut butter? No, not the one earlier this year, or the one in 2012, or the one in 2007. We mean the one in 2008, where peanut butter shipped from the Peanut Corporation of America was linked to more than 700 illnesses and nine known deaths. Five years after the company’s cartoonish terribleness was revealed, three executives were put on trial for knowingly distributing contaminated food to the American public. [More]

The Pumpkin Crème Brûlée Latte Is Now A Thing At Dunkin’ Donuts

It’s the last official week of summer, but did you think that America had reached peak pumpkin yet? Of course it hasn’t.

Dunkin’ Donuts has raised the pumpkin stakes by offering pumpkin crème brûlée latte coffee drinks, and pumpkin mocha drinks. I don’t understand. [More]

Unofficial Calorie Count For Arby’s Meat Mountain: There Are Worse Things You Could Eat

The Only Thing You Need To Know About Five Guys Testing Customizable Shakes Is That Bacon Is Involved

There are times when it’s good to keep a separation between your sweet and savory foods, probably, but once you bring bacon up, all walls can be torn down and it should be welcomed as part of any concoction. At least, that’s what was decided by the Famous Bacon Accords Of 1996. Which is why the most important part of Five Guys burger chains testing out customizable milkshakes is that bacon is an optional ingredient. [More]

Christmas Tree-Shaped Ice Cream Is Here In Time For, Um, Summer

What better way to celebrate “Christmas in July” than breaking out Reese’s peanut butter cups shaped like pine trees? Yeah, we didn’t think that it was such a good idea, either, especially since it’s no longer July. However, the freezer case at Walmart disagrees. [More]

The Best Lines From John Oliver’s Takedown Of The Payday Loan Industry

As regular readers of Consumerist know, we’re not exactly fans of the payday loan industry.

Presenting The 9 Most Calorie-Filled Chain Restaurant Meals Of 2014!

(Bill Binns)

To some, the Center for Science in the Public Interest’s annual Xtreme Eating awards are a reminder of how some restaurant meals can pack thousands of calories, oodles of saturated fat, and piles of sodium on a single plate. To others, the awards make up a to-try list of over-the-top menu offerings. Both will find plenty of sugary, fatty, salty treats to study with scorn, concern, curiosity, lust, or awe. [More]

Pumpkin Spice Creep Spotted In Peanut Butter Aisle
