Sonic has again graced the fast-food dining public with its deep-fried cheesecake bites --or, as I call them, "Thousands of years of tradition stuffed into a greasy paper bag with a side of strawberry sauce." Couple an order of those with one of Sonic's new Hickory Flatmelt sandwiches crammed with s ... More >>
Ever have a hankering for a dozen chocolate-iced Bismarks and an iced latte from Dunkin' Donuts -- and then realize that because you live in Denver, you can't have them? Watching the occasional Dunkin' Donuts advertisement on the telly just rubs sprinkles in the stummy wound. Right now, there are ... More >>
Cake batter fried in oil, then smeared with sugar icing. Sometimes I wonder how the human race managed to survive the advent of doughnuts, and then the materialization of chains like Krispy Kreme. Krispy's has been very, very successful at tapping into the fat-and-sugar lust that people inherited ... More >>
Is the delicacy a "donut" or "doughnut"? The latter spelling is as old as the pastries themselves, while the truncated "donut" spelling seems to lack a certain maturity. But spelled either way, the 'nuts are delicious. Today, June 1, is National Doughnut Day, an American holiday started by the Salv ... More >>
How the presence of an official Dog the Bounty Hunter merchandise store within 3.5 miles of my home has escaped my knowledge until now, I'm not sure. I've always had an affinity for the show, which is unexplainable by any stretch of the trashy imagination. But man, do I fucking love this show. Maybe ... More >>
Superfoods are the latest cool diet trend, despite the fact that most people couldn't pick an antioxidant or a free-radical out of a lineup.

Simply put, Garfield is our spirit animal. Obsessed with sleeping, averse to Mondays and, like us, addicted to dieting, this cat embodies everything we are in cartoon form. He even has those stoney, medical marijuana eyes and a creepy perma-grin that makes him almost look like a true Colorado ... More >>
A Flickr photo There are plenty of arbitrary, food-related holidays, but free doughnuuts? Now, that something to get excited about. Not everyone is celebrating National Donuts Day -- such local shops as Walton Donuts and Marty's 47th Street Donuts, along with the chain Winchell's Donut House, ... More >>
Like worthless manna from heaven.Ah, Fat Tuesday, the day when cheap plastic beads are somehow transformed into a currency for getting drunk girls to show you their tits -- it's like the frat-bro version of Cinderella, except the fairy godmother is the dollar store and at midnight you just pi ...

Nothing says "fitness" like a dozen doughnuts. The eighth annual Krispy Kreme Challenge took place in North Carolina last weekend. The four-mile race is notable because it generates more than $100,000 for the North Carolina Children's Hospital -- but also because it has 2,400 calories of doug ... More >>
There's more coming out of their mouths than going in.I had never seen an episode of Jersey Shore until last week, and now that I've watched both the season-three opener and the second episode, I have come to a few conclusions.

Ah, the burger. Labor Day grilling tradition, force of good and ease in the American diet. We take you for granted, burger. We assume that because you are a national culinary treasure that you are also unassailable, that you can be toyed with--unmercifully at times--and that you'll still com ... More >>
Free!?! God Bless America. Sure, it’s your civic duty to vote, and the future of civilization just might depend on it. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't milk some free stuff out of it.
