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 […]

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 […]

bubble tea ellicott city

Nerd Food: Bubble Tea from Tea-Do in Ellicott City

Bubble tea is impossibly popular right now. From kiosks in the mall selling the delicious drink to kiosks in Disney World, you can find bubble tea almost everywhere now. In Baltimore (and the surrounding areas) alone there are dozens of tea shops. One such place is Tea-Do in Ellicott City! I played it safe and […]

Nerd Food: Smoke BBQ is the Perfect Way to Ring in Summer

There’s something about BBQ and warm June afternoons that make me feel like a kid again. Usually I just grill at home, but currently I don’t own grill. Luckily for me, Smoke in Cockeysville, MD makes some damn good BBQ. This modern American BBQ restaurant has two locations in Maryland — the aforementioned Cockeysville location, […]

Nerd Food: Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade from Epcot

Purple is all the rage at Disney World right now. From the famous purple wall in Tomorrowland to the friendly purple dragon Figment, there’s no end to purple power in Disney! One of this year’s most popular (and Instagrammable) treats at the 2018 Flower and Garden Festival was the frozen desert violet lemonade, found at the […]

epcot potato pancakes

Nerd Food: Potato Pancakes with House-Made Applesauce from Bauernmarket in Epcot

During Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival, guests have the opportunity to try many new foods not commonly offered in Epcot. In the Germany Pavilion, the Bauernmarket kiosk offers German drinks and light fare such as this: potato pancakes with house-made applesauce! Potato pancakes with applesauce are nothing new to me — we eat them during […]

disney world epcot bubble tea

Nerd Food: Bubble Tea at Joy of Tea in Epcot

I drink bubble tea fairly regularly. I enjoy milk tea with tapioca bubbles, which is a classic bubble tea combo. Lucky for me, Disney World has one spot that does sell it: The Joy of Tea! The kiosk is right outside the China Pavilion inside the World Showcase in Epcot. Bubble tea is a staple […]
