Super Mario cereal is a must-have for the amiibo-obsessed

Super Mario cereal is a must-have for the amiibo-obsessed

Considering that Super Mario Odyssey is one of the biggest games of 2017, we'd expect Nintendo to do a certain number of product tie-ins to promote the title. After all, Mario has ascended beyond mere video game fame to become a globally-recognized mascot, so it makes sense that Nintendo would want its promotion machine to implant itself in as many markets as possible. This is where Kellogg's new Super Mario cereal enters the picture.

Google Android Burger lunch gave employees an emoji-inspired meal

Google Android Burger lunch gave employees an emoji-inspired meal

Google accidentally ignited an Internet debate perhaps only rivaled by the great is-it-white dress debacle of 2015. The Internet giant, you see, released a cheeseburger emoji in which the cheese deviated from norm. That is, Apple and Microsoft both put the cheese above the burger patty, as is customary in many places. But someone -- or many someones -- at Google decided to thumb their nose at traditional and put the cheese below the patty.

Scientists just revolutionized coffee creamer

Coffee, America's favorite beverage, just got a little more convenient thanks to some food scientists with Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU). The researchers have created what they call a milk capsule; it is a puck-shaped solid bit of coffee creamer that dissolves after being put into a cup of hot coffee. Unlike the little cups of liquid creamer that currently exist, you can't accidentally spill the milk capsule on your clothes.

Amazon food tech will let it deliver cooked meals without refrigeration

Amazon, not content with just dominating consumer shopping and ebooks, is looking into launching a food delivery service that will utilize special technology for keeping meals fresh...without refrigeration. This tech was first created and used by the U.S. military, but it could prove a vital way for Amazon to set itself apart from competing food delivery services. Assuming the sources are correct and Amazon's project goes according to plan, we may see these meal deliveries go live in 2018.

The cake is thought to originate from a voyage to Antarctica that took place in the early 1900s.

Genetically modified salmon arrive in grocery stores for the first time

Genetically modified salmon have made their way into the wild, so to speak. While the female fish of this GMO variety are sterile to prevent them from mixing with wild salmon, the fish have expanded beyond their AquaBounty farms, arriving on dinner plates in Canada. This marks the first time genetically modified salmon have been sold for consumption, a trend that will no doubt continue following statements from multiple authorities citing the meat as safe for consumption.

Amazon meal kits will ship dinner to your front door

Blue Apron and lesser known services like it specialize in shipping all the ingredients for dinner to your door, leaving the actual cooking process to the buyer. It has proven to be a popular option that lies between take-out food and cooking from scratch, and now it looks like Amazon is getting in on the game. A trademark application from Amazon recently appeared from Amazon Technologies detailing 'prepared food kits' with the tagline 'we do the prep, you be the chef.'

Soylent is now available from some 7-Eleven stores

Soylent -- it's that bizarro food-drink that has both faithful fans and fervent critics. When it first launched, you had to buy Soylent as a powder, something that itself has gone through multiple iterations. In the relatively recent past, the company expanded beyond that by adding a pre-mixed liquid drink option, but you still had to order it from the company's website or through Amazon. If you're curious to try the stuff for yourself but don't want to shell out for a minimum online order, there's a new option: 7-Eleven stores.
