Red Wedding Brew: We Review Game Of Thrones’ Mother of Dragons Beer

Every time we have the pleasure of receiving a new Game Of Thrones beer from Brewery Ommegang, it’s so tempting to just call the article “I Drink & I Know Things”. The wonderful people at HBO were kind enough to send us a bottle of their latest brew, this one called Mother of Dragons in […]

Halloween at Disneyland: 2018’s Tricks and Treats

We’ve been so excited about getting the chance to experience Halloween time at Disneyland this year, specifically attending Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party (which we’re doing tonight!). Both Disneyland proper and California Adventures have been redecorated for the season, with fall harvest colors and pumpkins everywhere. Several of our favorite Disney characters have donned […]

Nerd Food: TV-Inspired Mocktails from the Amazon Fire Experience at SDCC

If you didn’t get to swing by the Amazon Fire experience at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, you missed out on some pretty interesting TV-inspired mocktails. Eternal Sunrise, The Analyst: Jack Ryan, Fire TV & Ice, and The Night’s Watch were your choices, and they all sounded fabulous. But did they all taste fabulous? You’re about […]

Welcome to San Diego Comic-Con 2018, nerd food lovers.

Disney Maleficent cake jar

Nerd Food: Don’t Worry, This Maleficent Cake Jar Won’t Put a Spell on You

Maleficent is my favorite Disney villain. Her whole reason for being a jerk was because she wasn’t invited to a party, which raises some serious questions. The main one being: why would you snub her? She’s the most powerful fairy of them all. She probably would have bestowed some badass gift onto Aurora. But I […]

flying dog bleacher beer

Nerd Food: Flying Dog Bleacher Beer is Summer in a Can

Nothing screams summer more than baseball in July — especially if you can spend the afternoon or evening at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, like I recently did. Without a doubt Camden Yards is one of the most beautiful stadiums in the MLB, and even if the O’s aren’t doing so hot, there’s still plenty […]



disney world s'mores

Nerd Food: Disney World Has a Unique Way to Make S’mores [Video]

Snacks at the Disney Parks are almost always out of this world. Even the most common ones — including s’mores — are created with love and magic. At The Ganachery you can indulge in some magical (and adorable) s’mores any time of the year. No campfire required! I’m a fan of The Ganachery, so if […]

Mikan Gummy from Japan Crate

Nerd Food: Mikan Gummy from Japan Crate

The mikan is a small citrus fruit from Japan, also known as the satsuma orange. These pack a lot of flavor and are pretty good for you, and since they fall in the citrus family, most westerners will likely be warm to the idea of eating them. Sometimes you can find mikan in your local […]

japan crate banana omelette

Nerd Food: Banana Omelette Cake from Japan Crate

Bananas are some of my favorite fruit. They’re healthy for you, and they have a nice, mild sweet taste. These banana omelette cakes from Japan Crate were enticing, but were they any good? Clearly these aren’t egg and banana omelettes, as one might think — they’re little cakes folded over with banana cream inside! These […]

mickey mouse Goldfish crackers

Nerd Food: Are Mickey Goldfish Crackers as Good as the Originals?

I made the mistake of going to Target this weekend for shampoo — and as you may have guessed, I bought everything else too. Right now Mickey Mouse is in full force at Target, and I can’t deny my love of the main mouse himself. These Goldfish crackers caught my eye. For one, I do […]

Mickey Ice Cream Bar ears disney world

These Mickey Ice Cream Bar Ears Are Amazing, and We Need a Pair

Oh my cheese and crackers. Look. At. These. Ears. These adorable new ears were inspired by one of Disney’s most iconic in-park snacks: The Mickey Ice Cream Bar. Obviously I need a pair, more than I need the rose gold or millennial pink ears (which I still want). These are perfect for everyone who loves […]

jurassic world jelly belly

Nerd Food: Celebrate National Candy Month (and Jurassic World) with Jelly Belly

Honestly, Jelly Belly jelly beans are what I think of first when I hear the word “candy”. They’re the perfect size, they’re delicious, and they come in a variety of flavors! Plus, this package has a dinosaur on it. That’s pretty damn cool. This pack comes with sparkling orange, sparkling very cherry, sparkling wild cherry, […]

japan crate melon cream soda

Nerd Food: Gabunomi Melon Cream Soda from Japan Crate

Gabunomi Melon Cream Soda. Yep, that’s what I tried today. Yep, it was weird. In theory it’s supposed to taste like an ice cream float in a bottle. In practice it tastes like sugary syrup and regret. Seriously — this was not good. I normally like Japanese snacks and drinks, but this made me want […]

japan crate chips

Nerd Food: Suppamucho Plum-Flavored Chips from Japan Crate

In short, these are plum-flavored chips. Seriously, guys. Plums. I was hesitant about trying them (though generally speaking I love ume — umeboshi onigiri is my favorite food), but because I love you and nerd food, I had to do what I had to do. The smell is sour and sweet and will literally punch […]
