Five More Insane (or Maybe Sane) New Food Products

Early 2015 is already proving to be a curious time for food aficionados, and it isn't like 2014 was boring, either. Last year ended with weird hot dogs, an avalanche of cronuts and fast-food restaurants squirting sriracha and maple syrup on almost everything. A month into the new year, we foodies are already puzzling over Starbucks rolling out a flat white (or at least bewildered by all the hype happening over it), Australia beating Americans at our own game with a 99-cheese pizza (our move now) and someone coming up with 3-D printed chocolate. Could the latest edible creations get any more ridiculous? Yes.

Here's a list of five more insane -- and sane -- new food products. Get all ready for and even better Trader Joe's cookie butter, a worse version of an already bad White Castle burger, and bacon-less bacon grease.
