It’s almost Halloween, and ghoulish looking food seems to have taken over everywhere. From jet black cocktails to, you guessed it, all black chicken. But before you jump to any conclusions, this chicken is all natural. The Ayam Cemani Chicken

One of the great things about Easter (apart from Jesus’ resurrection, obviously) is all the chocolate. Chocolate Easter eggs, chocolate bunnies, what’s not to love? Candy companies usually hit out of the park selling all that chocolate in the pretext

 Fruits, chocolates and cookies are all amazing in their own unique way. And when blended into a thick and creamy beverage with milk, they become even better. Now, there is flavoured milk and then there is milkshake. Both separated by

The festive season has officially begun, and companies are trying to cash in at every opportunity. While that has brought about some crazy (awesome) candy and amazing alcohol gifts, there has been some riff-raff as well. The largest entrant to

McDonald’s has a new vegan burger. *mic drop* While a vegetarian burger isn’t new to us on the subcontinent thanks to the McAlooTikki, and the McVeggie burgers (yes, these are real burgers in India) a vegan option is something we

The pumpkin spice apocalypse is upon us, and even Martha Stewart is tired of it. While we’ve gotten accustomed to the PSL’s, and various pumpkin spice flavoured candy, nothing could have prepared us for the latest passenger on the pumpkin

It’s 2017, yet surprisingly (unsurprisingly?) you don’t have to look far to see sexism rear its ugly head in everyday life. From siblings trying to ‘toughen up’ their younger brother, to your mother telling you that “Girls shouldn’t use that

We’ve all been subjected to the onslaught of memes declaring autumn’s arrival and the shift to all things pumpkin spice (yes, even all the way here in India, where we don’t even have seasons). While we may not have fall

It seems as though we just can’t stop talking about beef (pun intended)! From the spat of protest brought on by the beef ban in Kerala to ludicrous comments being directed at beef eaters, we’ve seen it all. And it

Cakes are gorgeous. Cakes are delicious. And the best part? There is one for every occasion, festival and celebration! From vibrantly lit up birthday cakes to pristine white wedding cakes. But that’s just classifying it on the outside? What about

When it comes to food (or anything really) the internet can be dark and full of terrors. Apparently, in Japan, Chicken Sashimi is actually a thing (you know, raw chicken). Food and Wine (knowingly, I might add) unleashed a whole

September has just begun, hence for those countries around the world that do experience seasons, autumn themed products are rolling out by the dozen. We’re all familiar with Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte, and Krispy Kreme’s Pumpkin glazed doughnuts weren’t much

It seems to have been universally acknowledged that the doughnuts of the days of yore just don’t quite cut it in today’s ‘millennial’ environment. Seriously, don’t tell me that you knew what ube was before the start of the year

It is the year of the unicorn, and by that, we mean unicorn coloured foods. Everywhere you look bright, colourful food greets your eyes – freshly uploaded to the ‘gram’. The latest food to regain prominence in this age of ‘social

Netflix released Okja in June, and there were immediate ramifications. Headlines sprung up all over the place claiming (keyword, claiming) that throngs of people were going vegan after watching the friendly CGI super pig. And it seems as though Netflix

KFC released a new advertisement, in what we think is an attempt to focus on the fact that they use fresh chicken. However, it did cause quite a bit of traction on the internet, because, nothing on the internet is

We’ve had our share of odd food hybrids over the last couple of years (I blame globalization). We’ve been subjected to the baozza, sushi burritos, and dessert pizza, but none have been quite so blasphemous as this latest creation. A

In the never-ending race to stay “on fleek”, largely due to millennials’ changing tastes (read social media fascination) Starbucks has come out with the drink to end all drinks – the Turmeric Latte – and no, we are not making

We all lost our collective shit when chocolate pizza debuted in India (I for one, was not a fan). Some things just aren’t meant to be right? Wrong! Tella Balls Dessert Bar, a Nutella-themed cafe has come up with Nutella Pasta,

If you’re one of those people who doesn’t think that pineapple goes on pizza then you should avert your eyes. The internet is no stranger to food that is dark and full of terrors (read: baozza, avolatte) but the Swineapple
