Sure, no one wants to be attacked and devoured by bloodthirsty lions, tigers, or sharks, but what about giant man-eating penguins? You’re looking at the last thing seen by an Antarctic explorer who had the grave misfortune of crossing paths with one. One gulp and he was a chilly memory. Om nom nom nom!
Okay, not really, but the perspective in this photo is so dramatic, we couldn’t help but get a little carried away. This awesome shot was captured by the folks at G Adventures while exploring Antarctica aboard the M/S Expedition. The penguin is neither giant nor a man-eater. It’s an adorable Gentoo Penguin caught in the act of attacking the team’s GoPro camera.
These adorable Sushi Trucks are the work of Japanese artists Yasuhiko Hayashi and Yusuke Nakano. They created this awesomely kawaii method for transporting pieces of delicious sushi to hungry customers in order to demonstrate how serving food can be a fun and creative enterprise.
Of course, no matter how hungry we were, we wouldn’t be able to resist the opportunity to drive our sushi trucks around the bar, pretending to be voracious kaiju, before driving them right into our mouths. Om nom nom nom!
Thanksgiving and the start of Hanukkah fall on the same day this year. The Zucker Bakery in Alphabet City, Manhattan is celebrating this special holiday concurrence by offering a tantalizing selection of Thanksgivukkah donuts. They aren’t like any donuts we’ve seen before.
The flavours include Sweet Potato Donuts with Toasted Marshmallow filling, Spiced Pumpkin Donuts with Turkey-Cranberry Filling, Spiced Pumpkin Donut with Turkey-Gravy Filling, and Cranberry Donuts. They look and sound delicious. If you’re in New York, please pay them a visit and enjoy a few Thanksgivukkah donuts for us.
Beth Klosterboer of Hungry Happenings is a festive food maven. One look at her amazing Candy Corn-stuffed Thanksgiving Turkey Cake and we’ve completely forgotten about eating actual roast turkey. Who has time for dinner when dessert is as awesome as this?
The turkey is a layered, frosted yellow cake with wings and drumsticks hand-molded using a paste made of frosting and mashed cake. The impressively realistic stuffing is a combination of toasted cake cubes and crumbled bits of frosting/cake paste dusted with cocoa powder. And the veggie trimmings are made of fondant and modeling chocolate.
But wait, assuming you have any leftovers the day after Thanksgiving, you can create a whole new dessert by using slices of turkey cake to make turkey cake sandwiches. Om nom nom nom!
Witchetty grub, is an Australian term for the large, white, wood-eating larvae of several moths when those larvae are being considered as food. These great big grubs are an important food source in the harsh deserts of Australia and a staple in the diets of Aboriginal Australians.
"The different larvae are said to taste similar, probably because they have similar wood-eating habits. Edible either raw or lightly cooked in hot ashes, they are sought out as a high-protein food by Indigenous Australians. The raw witchetty grub tastes like almonds and when cooked the skin becomes crisp like roast chicken while the inside becomes light yellow, like a fried egg.”
Nom Nom Pumpkin!
Just having a little fun with some pumpkins. I will probably carve another one this year, so keep a look out for it.

This is one of the strangest, tastiest Bigfoot sightings we’ve seen yet. Most Bigfoot believers think the elusive creature lives in the woods, but it turns out that at least one might’ve been miraculously hiding inside a toaster.
While someone was making their breakfast back in the summer of 2008, their toast popped out the toaster bearing the unmistakable image of Bigfoot as he first appeared in the famous Patterson–Gimlin film. After a 27 bids, this awesome slice of toast sold for $33.35.

It’s Bigfoot Day on Geyser of Awesome!
Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) is a bacon wizard. Everything he’s made using bacon has made our mouths water and this latest creation is no exception. Behold the dainty, decadent glory of Bacon Weave S’mores. They’re like traditional s’mores with one meaty exception: Instead of graham crackers, the melted chocolate and marshmallow are sandwiched between two heavenly pieces of woven bacon strips.
"I made each square the exact same size as half of a Hershey’s Chocolate bar, which as you can see from the photos ended up being three pieces of bacon by two pieces of bacon. Since I didn’t need full slices of bacon for the squares either I was able to create two complete squares from just five pieces of bacon by cutting each one in half first.
Since the chocolate and marshmallow melt so easily that if you make these you’ll want to make sure that your bacon weave squares are completely cooked before you add the two final ingredients. After adding the chocolate and marshmallow it was just a quick 30 seconds in the microwave until my Bacon Weave S’mores were ready to eat!”

In our ongoing effort to bring you the most awesome cakes we can find, we’re please to present the work of English baker Louise Caola, another cunning and creative baker who devotes her energy to creating cakes that don’t look like cakes at all. Instead they look like dinners of beautifully marbled roast beef, grilled steak and chips, burritos, sausages and mash, roast chicken, fish sticks, and pizza, to name a few.
"The 23-year-old designed her first sausage and potato mash cake for a friend’s birthday and received praises from everyone who got to see it before it was devoured, which fueled her passion for novelty desserts. She immediately started working on even more impressive cakes in her free time and posted photos of them on social networks like Twitter and Instagram. Soon Louise was flooded with orders from all over the internet and she started taking her hobby more seriously.
A few weeks ago, the amateur baker finally decided to quit her job and focus all her attention on her newly-created novelty cake brand called Poppy & Lulu (after a couple of close childhood friends). For the time being she only offers hand-delivery around London, but hopes to one day expand nationwide and have a team of bakers helping her make fun cakes.”
Louise’s edible creations take up to four hours to make, Achieving such convincing results involves lots of trial and error, but we’re willing to bet that those errors are still delicious.
Cotton candy is so sweet and yummy that we’ve always happily eaten it without paying any attention to the fact that it usually looks like the end of a giant cotton swab. That has all changed since we first watched this hypnotic video in which a skilled street vendor in Ciqikou, Chongqing, China creates servings of spun sugar that look like enormous, colourful flowers.
Great big, fluffy flowers of sugary awesomeness.
