Mac n’ Cheetos, Ghostbusters-Themed Burgers, Geneva’s NSFW Café, and Moons of Ham

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.

‘Murica!

Beginning on June 27th, fast food franchise Burger King will be serving up Mac n’ Cheetos for a limited time. Those wondering what Mac n’ Cheetos could possibly entail will either excited or dismayed to learn they’re fried macaroni and cheese bites that have been shaped like Cheetos and dusted with signature Cheetos cheesy flavoring. Born of a partnership between the burger restaurant and snack purveyor Frito-Lay (the same team-up that, for better or worse, gave humanity the Doritos Locos Taco), this macaroni mashup will be sold in packages of five for the suggested price of $2.49.

When There’s Something Strange…Between your Buns

Japanese burger chain J.S. Burgers Cafe is celebrating the upcoming release of the new Ghostbusters film with a movie-themed menu.  It features the notable likes of the G.B. Burger (a beef burger given a horror-movie makeover courtesy of a smearing with black olive-anchovy paste, and a black bun), and a dessert called the Marshmallow Mad Burger, which appears to involve ‘mallows, Oreo cookies, and a red compote-like sauce.  No word yet on whether the menu also includes a Twinkie thirty-five feet long, weighing approximately six hundred pounds.

Write Your Own Punchline…

So, before the end of 2016, a coffeehouse in Geneva plans to open a café that offers male patrons fellatio courtesy of in-house prostitutes (yes, seriously. I could not make that up. I’m not that good) with their cups of hot java.

Still reading? No one would blame you if you weren’t. Anyway…

This understandably controversial  idea will provide the service for 60 Swiss francs, with an additional charge for upgrading your cup of coffee to a Macchiato (I’m going to go ahead and pause until you all finish rolling your eyes. Are we good? Okay, then. Moving on…) and is said to theoretically be capable of operating within the confines of Swiss law, since prostitution is legal there, though sex workers must carry official permits.

This somehow makes coffee and cafés seem less sexy instead of more, but maybe I’m just a killjoy.

Moons of Pork and Strawberry

So, there was a “Strawberry Moon” a few nights ago. Apparently, the phenomenon bears more than a passing resemblance to a slice of ham, as evidenced by the fun little quiz cooked up by awesome Twitter user @Terubou_Cos. The above photo, showing us four pinkish circles, challenges viewers to distinguish between sliced ham and our actual moon that most of us have spent our entire lives looking at each night. Can you tell the difference? The answer lies at the RocketNews24 link below.
