Woofbowl, A Foodtruck That Caters Exclusively To Dogs

Woofbowl is a food truck that caters exclusively to dogs, offering fast-food items for dogs that are organic, non-GMO, high in protein, and free of preservatives and artificial flavors.

The menu items look remarkably like human food truck items, such as burgers, ice cream, and beer, but the gag is they are healthy dog treats made from premium, human-grade, whole food, dog-friendly & superfood ingredients that even the pet owners can eat.

Woofbowl started in 2017 by the husband and wife team of Ron Holloway, a veteran and his wife Solo, a refugee from the Khmer Rouge regime. The couple introduced the dog food truck in Washington, DC but they have since moved their way up to New York City, making appearances in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and parts of New Jersey. The idea came to them after the couple adopted their two dogs to help with Ron’s PTSD.

Change The Whirled: Ben & Jerry’s And Colin Kaepernick Created A New Flavor

Ben & Jerry’s was inspired by Colin Kaepernick’s bold activism for racial justice that they did what they do best: The Vermont based ice cream company whipped up a euphoric flavor to honor his work.

Ben & Jerry’s Colin Kaepernick’s Change The Whirled Non-Dairy is made with sunflower butter and is 100% certified vegan, just like Kaepernick himself. And Kaepernick’s portion of the proceeds go to Know Your Rights Camp, an organization he founded to empower Black and Brown youth and elevate the voices of the next generation of racial justice leaders. Know Your Rights Camp hosts free camps across America and internationally, engaging Black and Brown youth around social justice issues through education and self-empowerment. 

Ben & Jerry’s is proud to be working with a dedicated activist like Colin Kaepernick, whose work helped spark the international conversation around racial justice. Follow the graham cracker and chocolate cookie swirls as you dig into this cara-melt-in-your-mouth vegan dessert masterpiece and consider how you, too, can help change the whirled. 

The new flavor will hit store shelves in early 2021.

The Best Sandwich In Every State

On this list, you will not necessarily find the most fashionable or visually appealing sandwiches. Food and Wine wanted to pick only icons and legends, the sandwiches that have stood the test of time. 

They wanted the ones with an extreme sense of belonging, the sandwiches people would fight for, and possibly over.

As an example, the Pastrami Sandwich from California’s Langer’s Deli:

If anyone asks you what the 1970s were like in Los Angeles, drag them down—immediately, if not sooner—to Langer’s Deli, the best Jewish deli in America, for the pastrami. The setting is vintage coffee shop, a bright, mid-century beauty sitting just off of MacArthur Park in the middle of one of the West Coast’s most densely populated neighborhoods. Besides Katz’s in New York, you won’t find many classic delis serving hand-carved, thick-cut pastrami this delicate, this delicious. The house double-baked rye dusted with cornmeal and sliced continuously throughout the day is nearly unequaled in its class. The menu is a cavalcade of stars, and that #19 sandwich—pastrami with swiss cheese, coleslaw, and dressing—is a beauty, but you owe it to the meat, the bread, and yourself to start simply, with just pastrami on rye. Maybe a little mustard. Mustard would be fine.

Ben & Jerry’s Introduces Doggie Desserts

For the first time in the ice cream company’s history, Ben & Jerry’s is unveiling two new flavors designed exclusively for canines. Doggie Desserts by Ben & Jerry’s are tasty frozen treats that are paws-itively perfect for your pet, specifically formulated for dogs with a sunflower butter base. The frozen fun of peanut butter & pretzel swirls in “Pontch’s Mix” or the cool creaminess of pumpkin and mini cookies in “Rosie’s Batch” is just what a good dog needs after a raucous puppy playdate or a long walk with their human. All of the high-quality ingredients used in Doggie Desserts can be found in current Ben & Jerry’s ice cream recipes.

“Pontch’s Mix” and “Rosie’s Batch” were named after two real dogs in the Ben & Jerry’s office—an affectionate Frenchie and a rescue mutt of mixed heritage. As a dog-friendly workplace, the Ben & Jerry’s headquarters in Vermont often has up to 40 pups curled up under desks, keeping employees company. They’re all part of the K9 to 5-er crew that adds a little joy to the office atmosphere.

In addition to the two new Doggie Desserts, Ben & Jerry’s has partnered with like-minded suppliers to offer must-have pet accessories like a 6′ custom tie dye leash made from recycled water bottles and a plush cone toy stuffed with recycled fill. Limited quantities are available at www.store.benjerry.com.

Doggie Desserts will be sold individually in 4-oz mini cups or in 4-count multipacks, with a suggested retail price of $2.99 and $4.99. They will be found in supermarkets, mass retailers, and select pet stores nationwide. Learn more at benjerry.com and be sure to follow @BenandJerrysDogs on Instagram.

No bones about it, Doggie Desserts are a dog’s new best friend. We’ll have to pick some up for our dog Ginsburg and have her try it out!

KFC Launches Game Console That Keeps Your Chicken Warm

The KFConsole is part of a partnership with hardware manufacturer Cooler Master, KFC said in a statement on Tuesday.

“The Bargain Bucket-shaped machine features the world’s first built in chicken chamber, which is kitted out to keep its contents hot, ready for consumption during intense gaming sessions,” KFC added.

Your chicken will be kept hot thanks to a custom-built cooling system that keeps the console hardware at a regular temperature while using heat produced by its components to warm the chicken chamber.

Other specs include an Intel Nuc 9 Extreme Compute Element and two Seagate BarraCuda 1TB SSD drives for storage, according to the Cooler Master website. The console can handle virtual reality games and offers smooth gameplay thanks to 240 frames per second frame rate and 4K display compatibility, according to details published by Cooler Master.

“This machine is capable of running games at top-level specs, all on top of keeping your meal warm for you to enjoy during your gaming experience… what’s not to like?,” said Mark Cheevers, PR & social media lead at KFC UK & Ireland, in the company’s press release. “If Sony or Microsoft want any tips on how to engineer a chicken chamber for their efforts next time, they’d be welcome to get in touch.”

No release date or price has been announced.

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.”
