The last time we visited with Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) he was making a mouthwatering Bacon Weave Quesadilla. Nick and his marvelous woven bacon are back, this time with/as a truly tantalizing Bacon Weave Taco:
“I know that tacos with shells made out of bacon have been done before, but none of the ones I’ve seen looked very appetizing to me. It seems like people sort of took the easy way out when making them and just tossed their bacon over a metal object, made sure the strips overlapped a little so they’d stick together and either baked or deep fried it like that so their shells just end up looking like squares of bacon that have been folded in half. Long story short, most of the bacon taco shells out there just don’t look very taco-shaped.”
Nathan Shields, master of creating truly awesome pancakes (previously featured here), recently created something that might just be better than breakfast in bed: a homemade pancake breakfast that’s shaped like a Magic Treehouse.
We can’t stop thinking of tasty ways to decorate this amazing meal. Strawberry slices would make sweet shingles for the house itself. Make a ladder out of bacon. Add whipped cream for a snowy winter scene or syrup for rain. Just be sure to make your additions quickly, because pancakes are best while they’re still hot and fresh.
Why yes, that is the famous Chicago skyline made entirely out of bacon. It was recently photographed by Dennis Lee at the 5th annual Baconfest Chicago.
As people who have proudly created an entire Bacon Gift Shop, this sounds like our idea of heaven.
Head over to Serious Eats Chicago to view more photos of the meaty festivities.
Proving yet again that bacon makes everything better, Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) made mouthwatering quesadillas by replacing everyday flour tortillas with awesome tortillas made of woven strips of bacon. And thus the Bacon Weave Quesadilla was born and the day got that much better.
Visit DudeFoods for the recipe and then please considering inviting us over to enjoy them with you.
Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) has done it again. It’s another awesome exercise in overindulgence, this time in the form of a mouthwatering ice cream cone made out of a large chocolate chip cookie. WANT!

Please pardon us while we have a short glee and sugar-induced freak-out. If you’ve been following the Geyser of Awesome for even a little while you’ll know how much we enjoy anthropomorphism, googly eyes, and sweets. We’ve just encountered an awesome combination of all three:
A punny ice cream parlour in Barcelona, Spain named Eyescream sells shaved ice cream imported from Taiwan that they serve up with tasty pairs of sauces and toppings and… wait for it… googly eyes made of sugar.
So your sweet frozen treat stares up at you while you eat it. Is the ice cream creature paralyzed with fear or excited that you’re about to enjoy it? It’s important to consider what one’s personified food might be thinking, so these are the questions we ask ourselves.
It looks like it’s time for another field trip. We hope you’ll join us. The more people, the more flavours and toppings we can try.

We just found a relative of the awesome Octopizza Pie we posted about last month. This tentacular comestible was enjoyed by Redditor Chiefmon after being lovingly prepared by their friend’s (clearly awesome) mother. The tentacles are cheesy breadsticks with black olive slices for suckers. Yum!

This scrumptious fashion accessory is the work of Shaira who recently opened her own Etsy store called Raspberries and Rum. The 66” long Pizza Scarf is printed to look like a giant slice of delicious pepperoni pizza, but Shaira says customers may contact her to request different pizza toppings, lengths, and other forms of customization. Awesome!
The only problem we have with this incredibly appetizing scarf is that we start to crave pizza every single time we look at it. Then again, maybe that’s not really a problem. But between this and the Bacon Scarf, we’ll end up having to wear a bib on top to protect the scarves from our hungry drooling.
