As part of a promotion run by The Economist, a pop-up ice-cream stall opened in Martin Place for the day, right near our offices in Sydney. Awesome! I love ice cream! I'll go check it out, I said. The catch? The ice-cream was filled with insects. I was already in too deep to back out.
Now you, dear reader, get to experience what it is like to fill your mouth with dairy and dirt-dwellers. Hakuna Matata.
Lifehacker has indulged in some highly unorthodox taste tests over the years. From bacon milkshakes to placenta pizza, we've stuck a lot of weird and horrifying things into our mouths. To round off Friday, here are ten of the grossest gastronomical nightmares to squelch into our office. (You might want to read this one on an empty stomach.)
We were invited to KFC's flagship store in Mascot NSW to see how the company makes its chicken first-hand. We were shown every step of the process; from how meat is stored and prepared to the various ways KFC keeps its "secret" herbs and spices out of the hands of suppliers. Read on for a full kitchen tour.
Today, Coca-Cola launched Coca-Cola No Sugar in Australia - a new diet version of its popular soft drink that purports to taste much better than Coke Zero. We'll be the judge of that.
To celebrate the 2017 Lunar New Year, KitKat is bringing two of its famously exotic flavours to chocolate connoisseurs Down Under: the Citrus Creme Brulee KitKat and Red Bean and Toasted Coconut KitKat. For the princely sum of $68, you can purchase a selection of both flavours in a Special Edition gift set. That's $68. For some KitKats. Let's see what they taste like.
Pumpkin pie. It sounds weird to anyone born in Australia, where pumpkin is reserved for soup, roast dinners and occasionally for mixing in with mashed potato to make it a little bit healthier. We certainly don't see it as a sweet food, much less a dessert, though as it turns out pumpkin pie is actually a delicious dessert that every Australian should try at some point in their life.
The NcNutella Burger (AKA Nutella Sweety) is a dessert-based burger exclusive to McDonald's Italy. As its name implies, it's essentially a burger bun filled with creamy hazelnut cocoa spread in place of a meat patty.
Sadly, the Nutella Sweety currently isn't available at McDonald's Australia - so we decided to make our own. The results were surprisingly good!
Salted eggs might sound disgusting to you, but it’s a commonly eaten food in Asian countries. For the uninitiated, this delicacy is made from soaking duck or chicken eggs in brine then preserving them with salt. I personally love salted egg yolk (the gelatinous egg white, not so much) so when I saw McDonald's was selling the Salted Egg Yolk Chicken in Singapore, I jumped at the chance of a taste test. Here's my verdict.
