Nibble on this: 6 things happening in the world of food you should know.
Burger King rolls out deep-fried Mac ‘n’ Cheetos.
The snack food mash-up you never knew you wanted has landed. Burger King’s new snack puffs are deep-fried sticks of macaroni and cheese covered in pulverized, Cheetos-flavored breading. (Watch your back, Taco Bell Doritos Locos.) The Mac ‘n’ Cheetos will be available for 8 weeks beginning June 27, and cost $2.49 for 5 pieces. In case you’re curious: They clock in at 310 calories per order.
Kelis is opening a pop-up restaurant — but will she serve milkshakes?
The singer, Le Cordon Bleu culinary school graduate and cookbook author is partnering with burger restaurant Le Bun to serve up patties at her temporary London restaurant. KELISxLEBUN will open at the city’s Leicester House on July 6, 7, 13 and 14. On the menu: burgers, naturally, and South American arepas that Kelis enjoys, according to NME.

Customers are accusing Starbucks of being a glass-half-full kind of company.
It’s official. Starbucks will go to court for allegedly shortchanging customers, reports Extra Crispy. The plaintiffs in the case claim the chain’s lattes are 25 percent under-filled—the number of fluid ounces the customer pays for allegedly does not match the amount of coffee they receive in the cup. Starbucks reps might need something a little stronger than an espresso shot when this is all over.
The most important thing we learned today: Fermented walrus anus is a thing people eat—and, according to Andrew Zimmern, it’s delicious.
Really. Honestly. We’re shocked too. Zimmern prefers walrus anus to cookie dough. (Insert open-mouthed emoji here and then fill it with raw cookie dough, preferably chocolate chip.)
