Mark your calendars to go grocery shopping on February 3rd, as Oreo will be debuting two new flavors, cookie dough and marshmellow crispy for a limited time only. The already delicious snack will launch these two new flavors for six to eight weeks and luckily for us, there are reviews on these treats courtesy of the people over at Time.
Furthermore, they declared that this flavor tasted more of like a Frappucino flavor than cookie dough, tasting hints of caramel and coffee.
Still, it was good enough for the test taster to promptly go back for seconds.

Last week, we were thrilled to see our contributing writer Steve Luw in culinary action with the debut of Zhà Pan Asian Streetfood. The creators (Steve and his friend Heezy) of Zhà-Mē, an original fried Asian rice ball, held their first ever pop-up last Thursday at Zucker Bakery. And it was delicious.
Zhà, which is pronounced "Ja," translates to "Deep fried" in Chinese. So it makes sense that the food is just that: large balls of rice (about the size of your fist) stuffed with tasty mixtures and dunked in an oil bath, for an oh-so-crispy crust and a sinfully tender center. These babies are all about complex texture and flavor, which is exactly what Zhà Pan Asian was going for. The best part? Despite being comprised of rice and saucy meats, they do not fall apart in your hands. Score.
With a sugary mountain of luscious bananas and drizzled caramel atop moist French toast, guests at The Paramount cannot help themselves when it comes to brunching it in the Bean.
The Paramount is busy cooking up its wonderful delights at two locations in the Boston area – one in the charming Beacon Hill neighborhood on Charles Street, and the other in South Boston on East Broadway. Our go-to venue is the one on trendy Charles Street whenever we are craving a delicious treat of most any sort for weekend brunch.
Mmm, chili. That yummy blend of meat, beans, and spices could be considered one of the ultimate comfort foods. If you've got a difficult time resisting that tasty stew, you might want to think about going to Chilifest this Sunday, January 26 at Chelsea Market. Spoon-feed yourself chili-related food from 25 different restaurants, including Butter, Cannibal, and Mexicue.
Three years ago, a gang of restaurateurs wanted to start their own food company called Schnitz. The problem was that opening a restaurant in New York City is a tough job, and the three had never done anything like it before. As a possible solution, they started blogging about their experiences, from developing a logo to working on their menu. The goal was to build a community for feedback and to chronicle their struggles and successes in case anyone wanted to follow in their footsteps. In late December, Schnitz nailed down their first brick-and-mortar location.
We told you all about the PAMA "Are You Indispensible?" cocktail competition that was set to happen tomorrow night at the Museum of Sex.
Unfortunately, the crazy snowstorm has taken a toll on airplane flights, meaning the out-of-town finalists aren't able to come. So instead of chancing risky weather conditions, the cocktail-making challenge is rescheduled for a couple months from now. The only bright side is that it keeps us from wandering out in the snow storm looking for booze (or does it?)
Stay tuned for an updated event date!
