Oreo To Release Lady Gaga-Themed Cookies

Nabisco is teaming up with pop superstar Lady Gaga to release pink-colored, vanilla-flavored Oreo cookies with creamy green filling. The colorful treats will be available in six-packs starting in January, and full-size packs later on. 

The cookies feature design flourishes inspired by Gaga’s sixth album, Chromatica, which dropped in May.

The ad campaign also boasts a “Sing It With Oreo” contest, running Dec. 15 through the end of April, inviting fans to scan QR codes and record “messages of kindness.” These “Oreograms,” as they’re called, will be instantly turned into songs for sharing with friends and family. Prizes include a trip to one of Gaga’s concerts, pandemic permitting, and a chance to chill with the star.

“Over the last few years, music has become a key element of our purpose to spread more joy and playfulness in the world through partnerships and entertainment properties alike,” says Oreo senior director Justin Parnell. “We cannot wait to unleash her world of Chromatica on our Oreo cookie and encourage fans to spread musical messages of kindness to create a brighter and more connected country.”

Shave The Date: McDonald’s Is Giving Away 10,000 Free McRib Sandwiches To Fans Who Shave Their Facial Hair

The sauciest moment of the year is here! The McRib is back nationwide for the first time since 2012, beginning Dec. 2. So that beard you’ve so proudly grown while in quarantine or for a good cause this November…it’s got to go. Or it could get in the way of you enjoying a mouthwatering McRib. That’s why we’re here to tell you to shave it, and you could get a McRib on us.

That’s right. Starting today, we’re giving away a FREE McRib to the first 10,000 entries from fans who show us their clean-shaven face. Beard or no beard, prepare for the McRib with a shave—or even a facial mask—because anyone can participate, from your brother to your mother, sister-in-law or cousin’s roommate. Just post a picture of your cleanly-shaven or baby-smooth face on your public Twitter or public Instagram profile using #Shave4McRibSweepstakes and tag @mcdonalds. Sorry, no Stories! The first 10,000 entries will receive a code for a free McRib, available via McDelivery with Uber Eats, while supplies last.

“Our bearded fans know… facial hair and the McRib just don’t mix—believe me, I’ve tried,” said Vice President of U.S. Communications, David Tovar. “With the nationwide return of the McRib, we’re helping fans enjoy every delectable moment by encouraging them to shave for a chance to win a free McRib. And we’re excited this year to partner with No-Shave November, a charity that knows a thing or two about facial hair.”

In recognition of those who’ve grown a little scruff for a cause this month, we’re collaborating with No-Shave November —a non-profit organization devoted to fundraising for cancer research, prevention, and education—for some added good. Just buy a McRib on Dec. 2 and your purchase will help support our donation to the charity’s cancer initiatives.

“No-Shave November is a month-long journey where we ask participants to put down their razors and ‘get hairy’ in the name of cancer awareness,” said Senior Executive Director of No-Shave November, Monica Hill. “We’re thrilled McDonald’s is supporting this important cause, getting both the bearded and the non-bearded involved beyond November simply by purchasing a McRib.”

Whether you’re a McRib fanatic or first-timer, get ready to clean up that facial hair and shave the date for the nationwide return. The season begins December 2 at participating restaurants via carry-out, Drive Thru, the McDonald’s app or McDelivery. It’s going to be a saucy one.

Check Out The Most Beautiful Taco Bell In The World

The Pacifica Taco Bell near San Francisco is legendary for its spectacular beachfront views and retro architecture. 

The Taco Bell Cantina serves alcoholic beverages such as beer on draft and in bottles (local, imported, and domestic), booze infused Twisted Freezes (margaritas and other cocktails), and wine.

The building was originally built in the late 60’s as an A&W hamburger franchise, though it’s been a Taco Bell since the ‘80s. 

The gorgeous fast food franchise features a mural by SF street artist Norah Bruhn, a glass-enclosed, indoor/outdoor fireplace, and a walk-up window so sand covered diners can order from the outside. 

Like the chain’s other Cantinas, the interior has wood floors, tiled ceilings, exposed wooden ceiling beams, and trendy pendant lighting.

Announcing Waffle House Beer – Bacon And Kegs

Waffle House is getting an official beer as part of its collaboration with Oconee Brewing Company. And yes, it smells like bacon.

The cans feature a drawing of the iconic Waffle House restaurant as well as its famous sign. The signature yellow is printed as a backdrop on the can that is adorned with bacon strips and mugs of beer.

“The beloved scent of bacon stands out from the typical medium hop aroma of a red ale,” the brewery wrote in the Facebook post. “The malty sweetness of the base beer blends perfectly with the salty, savory, and smoky bacon extract to create a delicious and unique beer. Bacon & Kegs pairs well with breakfast food items (obviously!) or can be enjoyed as a stand-alone, soon to be iconic beer.”

The cans will be available in six packs or draft exclusively at Oconee Brewing Company beginning December 18.
