Did you think the internet was going to let you go one day without creating a new trend that simultaneously makes your teeth hurt and your arteries clog just by looking at it? Don't be ridiculous!

Feast your eyes on the frosting-stuffed croissant. It's not limited to red velvet flavor, they also have birthday cake, cookies and cream and more.

Look at it, and let the power of sugar flow through you.

It's actually called Mizu Shingen Mochi but since it's a weird, tasteless gelatin blob it's being marketed to US customers as a "raindrop cake".  It's a common desert in Japan, made out of a seaweed based gelatin called Agar. Since it doesn't taste like anything, it's usually accompanied by a sweet syrup and a soybean powder called kinako. 

You can even learn to make it in this video:

This new frozen drink is called the 'Wine Fraggino'. It's basically a Frappucino but instead of coffee (or anything else besides the ice...), it uses blueberry wine from Hokkaido.

The idea for a spoon you can eat originated in Hyderabad, India with the inventor, Narayana Peesapaty.  It's a pretty sturdy spoon with just a few ingredients that he hopes will be able to compete with disposable plastic spoons.  

Originally only available in India, it looks like this spoon might be coming to American markets.

If you're wondering how it can stand up to hot liquids and still biodegrade a few days later the answer is that the water does have some affect on it.  A dry spoon in an airtight container will stay good for up to two years but, according to the FAQ on the Bakey's website, if you leave it in liquid for over 10 minutes it will get soggy.

We're not sure what a crodough is, but it looks like a cronut with filling. It's a specialty of this UK bakery and they've taken it to a new level just in time for Easter candy. 



This is the Creme Egg Crodough. The makers of this delicious looking pastry recreated the Cadbury creme egg filling to add inside and on top of the 'crodough' and put a creme egg on top for good measure. 

You can probably skip coffee with this sweet breakfast treat. By the look of it, you'll be riding a sugar high all morning.

Seeing McDonald's food looking pristine after an uncomfortable amount of time is nothing new. That doesn't make it any easier to swallow.  Jennifer Lovdahl posted this image on Facebook with a description of it's quality six years after purchase. 



This is what she had to say about it:

It's been 6 years since I bought this "Happy Meal" at McDonald's. It's been sitting at our office this whole time and has not rotted, molded, or decomposed at all!!! It smells only of cardboard. We did this experiment to show our patients how unhealthy this "food" is. Especially for our growing children!! There are so many chemicals in this food! Choose real food! Apples, bananas, carrots, celery....those are real fast food.

There's a mysterious bro on Instagram who's also an accomplished chef with over 100 thousand followers. He's known for over the top small plates of junk food and captions written in all caps.  The chef known as Jacques LaMerde has made a name for himself as an inside joke in the cooking world.

Until now the true identity of this chef has remained elusive, until it was revealed to be Christine Flynn, a Toronto chef.  She appeared as a guest on Top Chef. This reveal may put an end to Jacques LaMerde, but hopefully she's onto bigger, better, just as unhealthy things.
