Flavorful World’s Friday Fourplay offers up a bite-sized tidbit of info on each of the four food- and drink-related things we found most interesting each week.
Bacon N’ Eggs Sharkz, ‘Cause Fashion’s Tasty
Some people wear their hearts on their sleeves. Others, it appears, wear their breakfast on their shoes. This stylish slip-resistant footwear comes to us courtesy of Mozo, and is crafted with food professionals in mind. So, the good news is you no longer need to be a hearty, protein-rich breakfast in order to dress like one. The bad news is that they’re only available while supplies last, as the model has been discontinued. Well, that and also that “Lefty Eggsy, Righty Nitritey” as a mnemonic device to help distinguish between one’s feet could take some time to catch on.
Take Out Houseflies With Several Grains of Salt
Bug-A-Salt is a bright yellow shotgun that uses common table salt as ammunition. Its purpose? To dispatch insects. Seriously, that’s it. Equipped with an auto-safety feature as well as a pop-up sight and slide-cocking, it could be a fun toy for anyone who’s ever suffered from the dilemma of not being able to kill pests while simultaneously scattering seasoning granules throughout their home. No word yet on whether good luck will ensue, should one manage to tag a fly by firing the gun backward over one’s shoulder.

Coca-Cola Eyes Premium Milk Market
Coke is unlikely to be the first brand to spring to anyone’s mind when words like “healthy” or “nutritious” are uttered. Perhaps seeking to change that, the beverage giant is moving into the premium milk market. It is a major investor in Fairlife, a milk label to debut next month in the U.S. A line of high-calcium, protein-enriched milk that’s low in sugar, Fairlife is said to be better-tasting than the milk we’re accustomed to buying (a claim that, however dubious, remains to be seen, but is doubtless made in order to help justify its price tag which is about double what you’ve been paying at your local grocer.) Fairlife is however, produced on sustainable farms utilizing a “proprietary milk-filtering process.” So, life could indeed be fair for those with a mind toward environmental issues and a willingness to pay a bit more for that which does a body good.

So It’s Come To This: Sriracha Beer
Okay, I think we all saw this one coming. Sriracha, like bacon before it, has been shoehorned into more products than I feel like naming today, but suffice it to say that they are legion. So it should surprise no one that a sriracha-laced beer is coming. Portland, Oregon’s Rogue Ales is no stranger to crafting unorthodox brews that have proven to be a hit with consumers, so its sriracha stout is likely to follow suit. It drops next month, making for a December to remember, as well as sending 2014 out on a spicy note.
