This KFC Xbox Series X controller is alarmingly bad

With new consoles on the horizon, we're seeing a lot of companies - specifically fast food companies - kick off giveaways. Here in the US, Taco Bell is giving away Xbox Series X consoles, while Burger King is giving away PlayStation 5s. It seems that folks over in the UK are getting their own fast food Xbox Series X giveaway through KFC, but what's particularly notable about this giveaway is the KFC-themed Xbox wireless controller that serves as a consolation prize for those who don't win a console.

Burger King is giving away a bunch of PlayStation 5s

Burger King is giving away a bunch of PlayStation 5s

Earlier this week, Burger King started teasing something to do with the PlayStation 5. The teaser didn't amount to much - merely the King looking into a Burger King food bag that would glow blue and make the PS5 startup chime whenever it was opened - but we assumed that the fast food joint was teasing some kind of giveaway. As it turns out, we were right.

Hand Sanitizer recalled because it looks like snack food for kids

The folks at Ashtel Studios made a design mistake. They saw an opportunity to make hand sanitizer fun for kids, but they took an unfortunate approach.

Study shows best time for morning coffee (and few health bonuses)

Study shows best time for morning coffee (and few health bonuses)

A study at the University of Bath (UK) found that a poor night's sleep is far better served by food first, then coffee. This is in contrast with the tendency of many coffee drinkers to begin their day with a cup of coffee before any sort of food intake, the sleepier the blacker. Coffee, while still safe to drink in most cases, can affect the way a person is able to metabolize sugar throughout the day. This is only the most recent in an enticing line of coffee studies that've been published over the past couple of years - let's take a peek!

Minecraft Creeper Crunch Cereal review – Gaming for breakfast

Minecraft Creeper Crunch Cereal review – Gaming for breakfast

How often does something get so big that it gets its own cereal? I guess the answer to that question is probably “a lot,” but I have to admit that I don’t know because I’m not really in the habit of following cereals based on pop culture phenomena. I remember Overwatch getting some kind of cereal. I’m sure there was cereal for Frozen at one point or another.

That, of course, was a Michigan thing, and even then it was probably only a south Michigan thing.
