…Fast food companies are liars?

It’s a pretty well known fact that when you go out to fast food, the stuff you see on your plate is not going to look like the stuff you see in the ads. The question then becomes, how bad is the difference? Do some restaurants get it close? Is the pampered food you see on the TV even remotely related to the meal you receive? Does anyone care? One blogger wanted to find out, so he purchased items that were featured in ads, took them home, and immediately photographed them to document the difference. The results speak for themselves, so take a look.

…Hot dogs can flavor vodka?


You may not mind the mystery meat that makes up a hot dog, but what about a vodka infused with the taste of America’s favorite finger food? Andrew Fenton has created weeniecello, a liquor that “has a fine beefy taste, with a hint of salt and gentle spiciness that lends itself to pairings with nachos or buffalo wings. Don’t want yours straight up? Try the Weenie-Tini, a concoction featuring:

    3 oz weeniecello
    1oz dry vermouth
    splash of sauerkraut brine
    garnished with a slice of frankfurter

Or, you can serve it in a shot glass and call it an Eenie-Weenie-Tini. As Smirnoff hasn’t released their own hot dog flavored vodka, I’d imagine the taste is either a love it or hate it sort of thing, but definitely something interesting to try the next time inebriation calls. Limp Bizkit would be so proud.
