When it comes to snack food, there’s not much worse than a soggy, stale chip. Keep your chips fresh as the day you tore open the bag with Fred’s literal chip clips. They come in potato and tortilla variants. Just don’t accidentally bite down on one, or your might chip a tooth.

Making the Crispiest Oven Fries

Making the Crispiest Oven Fries

Like many of you, we love us an order of great french fries. There’s just something about that crispy goodness that seems impossible to replicate without a deep fryer. But Adam Ragusea says these British oven fries are even more crunchy and delicious than traditional fries; though they’re not any healthier.

Making Mini McDonald’s Meals

Making Mini McDonald’s Meals

Miniature artist HMS2 shows us how to make some ridiculously tiny and accurate replicas of fast food and their packaging from McDonald’s. We love the individual french fries, and how the Coke even has microscopic ice cubes.

Toyota Bluegrass Tour

Toyota Bluegrass Tour

On our recent trip to Kentucky, we enjoyed a mix of horses, horsepower, baseball, and bourbon. We also visited Toyota’s largest factory in the world. Georgetown’s TMMK plant makes about 2,000 cars a day, and serves as a living monument to our global economy, where Japanese and American ingenuity and skill come together.

Volcano Chip and Dip Bowl

Volcano Chip and Dip Bowl

How Ice Cream Sandwiches are Made

How Ice Cream Sandwiches are Made

While we prefer our ice cream not include powdered milk or plant-based stabilizers, it’s still satisfying to watch the production process involved in making these tasty vanilla and chocolate ice cream novelties. Stick around for some coney goodness from How It’s Made.

Is Meat Bad for You?

The Egg Machine

The Egg Machine

There’s something immensely satisfying about this video of the SANOVO OptiBreaker, a specialized assembly line machine which ingests over 200,000 eggs hourly, gently cracks each one, then separates the whites from the yolks. It also can wash itself automatically.

Delicious Stone

Delicious Stone

Stop-motion animator omozoc created this amusing short film, in which he bakes a delicious looking cake. But this pastry isn’t made from flour and sugar. Nope, this recipe consists almost entirely of rocks. It sure looks yummy, but you might chip a tooth eating a slice.

Recreating Willy Wonka’s Wallpaper

Recreating Willy Wonka’s Wallpaper

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory includes a classic scene where his guests try out fruit-flavored lickable wallpaper. The guys at Hellthy Junk Food replicated the idea, but went one better by printing theirs on edible paper. Also, we’re never tasting snozzberries.

Why Produce Used to Suck

Why Produce Used to Suck

These days, most of the fruits and veggies we buy at the grocery store are quite good. Sam O’Nella Academy looks back at how we got from produce that was hard to eat, lacking in edible bits, and downright weird, to produce that we discard simply for aesthetic reasons.

Making a Wooden Pizza

Making a Wooden Pizza

While we prefer pizzas that we can actually eat, we still enjoyed watching woodworker Kyle Toth as he created a pizza that only a termite or carpenter ant could enjoy. The pepperoni is made from bloodwood, the cheese is yellowheart, and the crust is hickory.

Making a Cotton Candy Flower

Making a Cotton Candy Flower

Here in the US, cotton candy is typically just a big fluffy pillow of spun sugar, but in China, it’s often turned into amazing works of edible art by street vendors. Watch as this candy chef in Chongqing, China turns sugar into an intricate multi-color flower. Oh the humanity at 8:11!

Sailor Rations in the 18th Century

“A frothing, bubbling, cooking mess.” Townsends reads passages from an 18th century British sailor’s memoir that lists some of the things that they ate, and cooks one simple item from the list. It’s burgoo – boiled ground oatmeal served with molasses. Or pork and beef fat.

Scarlett Johansson vs. Hot Wings

Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

Ice cream sammies are pretty yummy all on their own, but Epicurious shows us how to make them just that much better by stacking them together into a decadent mint chocolate layer cake with them. We suppose you could substitute cherry, orange, or almond extract.

Wallace Loves Cheese

How KitKats Are Made

How KitKats Are Made

Nowhere are KitKat candy bars more popular than they are in Japan. So we can think of no better place to see how the treats are made, then at the Nestlé Japan Kasumigaura factory. After viewing the whole playlist, we wondered if we just watched a Wes Anderson movie.

Cooking the Swanson

Cooking the Swanson

Binging with Babish shows us how to cook the Swanson, a turkey leg wrapped in bacon that Ron Swanson casually showed off in Parks & Recreation. As expected, it takes a lot to make just a couple of these bad boys, especially when turkey’s not in season.
