In the name of good health Pepsi has rolled out a new flavor…salted caramel. Now hold on there, whose idea was this? Don’t get me wrong, I understand that no one drinks a Pepsi and is thinking about their health, but that flavor just sounds soooo extra. On the flip side, Pepsi is already packed with tons of sugary goodness, flipping it with some extra salt may not be so bad…it could after all taste okay. In fact, I just may try, even though I am not a huge fan of soda, the salted Pepsi just may work. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below, have you tried it?
Two things I’m not the biggest fan of are coffee and coca-cola. Yet, on rare occasions I indulge and partake in a nice cup of joe or a can of coke. I can’t deny the ingenuity of the Japanese and their prowess to find things that shock people. In Japan there is a curious vending machine that sells this concoction of coca cola coffee. This is how it stacks up: its got 50 percent more energy and 50 percent less calories at 34mg and 42 calories. Seems like it’ll have you humming all day long, ZOOM ZOOM!
So I have this love hate relationship with London. I want to like London a lot more than I do, but I don’t. However, they have the food game on lock and I’m a food lover. Hence my indecision. Overtime I visit my family there, I end up finding out about all these amazing new spots that cater to every type of taste you can imagine. I literally can no longer eat cheese or dairy for that matter. After my last trip there, I ate some of the best cupcakes I ever had and they were, get this, vegan. I dunno what magical vegetable crack coated sugar that woman put in the batter, but I loved it! With that being said, there is recently a pop-up restaurant in London called Tombo going on that offers Hello Kitty designed poke bowls. For those who don’t know, poke is a dish that is an amazing raw tuna fish salad. I’m literally posting this because only an artist would think to do something so magical like make your food look like Hello freaking Kitty. Of course the restaurant also offers cookies and lattes that look like the cute cat too! Gawd I’m melting! Bon appetite!
Meet Chef Yujia Hu of Milan’s SakanaSushi Milano restaurant. He’s dope and I’ll tell you why. He satiates not only customers tummy, but his own artistic cravings. How? By creating “Shoeshi” in his spare time. Clever name for some dope kicks, that are edible. You see, Yujia created his own tasty artful incarnations of some of your local sneakerheads favorite kicks. With the assistance of a tooth pick for the details, he has managed to not only touch upon kicks, but also recreate brand logos like The North Face and even popular Manga characters. The names of each ”shoeshi” are a clever, too: adidas “Hu-Giri” and “Nori” NMD, YEEZY “Seaweed Stripes” Zebra, Supreme “Sticky” Sliders. Based in Italy, unless you plan to travel to Milan soon, you’ll be hard pressed to try the delicious treats. However, you can buy image prints online here!

I don’t frequent Starbuck’s too often, however I love the idea of this drink. Why you ask? Simply because it’s pink. Ombré pink to be exact. Consisting of cool lime, coconut milk, Teavana Shaken Iced Passion Tango Tea and a little hibiscus. Stir and the color will change to a light pink. Final word: I’m curious to try, may even post the experience to the gram.
