Taco-Bell1

(PCM) Fast food retailer Taco Bell has announced plans to open a high-end restaurant location on the Las Vegas strip. The restaurant will feature the same Taco Bell menu favorites that you know and love, but will have the addition of several other higher end items such as tapas and of course booze.

The restaurant will be called Taco Bell Cantina and will feature two stories and be open 24 hours a day for all your taco needs, especially after a long night in Vegas. This is genius! The decor inside the eatery will be Vegas themed and they will be offering beer and frozen drinks called “twisted freezes” which will feature vodka, rum or tequila with fruit juice.

The location will also feature some absolutely fantastic views of the Las Vegas Strip!

There is another Taco Bell Cantina location in Chicago and the chain reveals that they have plans to open this style of restaurant in additional cities over the next few years. Rest assured that what happens in Vegas, at least when it comes to Taco Bell, doesn’t necessary have to stay in Vegas.

FDA Issues New Warning About The Dangers Of Consuming Raw Cookie Dough

cookie-dough

(PCM) Those of us who are big fans of taking a few licks of the spoon when making some delicious chocolate chip cookies may want to think twice as the FDA has issued a new warning about the potential dangers from consuming raw cookie dough.

The FDA claims that in addition to any type of raw cookie dough, you should not consume any type of raw batter at all. This is due to the continued outbreak of illnesses that are linked to a particular strain of E.coli that was discovered to be present in flour that has since been recalled.  The FDA goes on to warn that children should not be given any type of raw dough to play with as well, this goes for certain restaurants as well, that would often give children some raw pizza dough to play with while waiting for their food.

The source of the E.coli was discovered in flour which was recalled by General Mills last month and it affected nearly 10 million packages. The outbreak occurred at General Mills facility in Kansas City, MO and the company says a sample of the recalled flour tested positive for the E. coli strain.

Many people infected by the E.coli bacteria can suffer bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps. Kidney failure is also possible, but not common. At least 10 people have been hospitalized due to the outbreak, however thus far no deaths have been reported. The FDA advises that anyone handling raw dough or flour should immediately wash their hands and anything else the dough or flour may have come in contact. E. coli bacteria can be killed once food is baked, boiled or otherwise heated during preparation.

Prior to the E.coli scare, individuals were warned not to consume raw cookie dough over fear of salmonella poisoning due to the raw eggs present in the batter. It now poses an even more dangerous risk. If you simply must have a taste of raw cookie dough, try ice cream that contains chunks of cookie dough, as those have been made with treated flour and pasteurized eggs.

Viral Video: Man Takes A Bath In A Swimming Pool Filled With Coca-Cola

Coca-Cola-Swimming-Pool

(PCM) Talk about dedication to a project! A young man and his group of friends decided to fill a 1,500 gallon swimming pool with nothing but Coca-Cola and then take a swim. We don’t really understand why, however they filmed their epic undertaking and the resulting video has gone viral racking up well over 12 million views and counting on Youtube.

The video description claims that they spent weeks purchasing literally thousands of bottles of Coke and even more time opening and pouring in each and every one. And, shhh!, they even snuck some Pepsi in there, roughly about 7% of the pool fill total.

We think that the Coca-Cola swimming pool experiment was created to show the indestructibility of a quite expensive drone, however it appears that more people were freaking out over just how much Coke these guys used and why they would do such a thing.

One YouTube commenter, Matt Paff, broke down the videos expenses saying “Let’s do the math, if it is a 1500 gallon pool, then there are about 5,678 liters of coke. If they spent about a dollar a bottle ( and that is sale price) they spent about $2,839 on coke. If they didn’t have the pool already that another $500. The phantom 4 is $1,319 ( on Amazon)So in all they spent (about) $4,658 dollars. YOUR WELCOME!!!”

Either way, they are making bank now with all the YouTube traffic and our question is first off, how did they keep bugs and other garden pests out of the pool and just how do they plan on cleaning all of this up afterwards!

Switzerland Is Opening A Rather Risque Cafe

coffee1

(PCM) There are various types of cafe’s all around the world, however we can bet that none are quite as risque as the one that is about to open it’s doors (or other orifices) in Switzerland. There is already quite a bit of controversy surround the establishment, but thus far it has been given the green light. The very first “fellatio cafe” called FaceGirl will be opening up in Geneva by the end of 2016.

Prostitution is legal in Switzerland and sex workers are issued permits by the Swiss government. According to the country’s law, if two or more sex workers are employed by a business, it must be registered as a massage parlor, however, there is no law that states these “massage parlors” cannot serve coffee or other beverages, so that is exactly what FaceGirl has in mind.

The way it works is that a customer comes in pays a flat fee of approximate $70 and places their order for a coffee beverage and a girl of their choice from a Ipad menu. The customer then has a seat at the bar, however it will not be your typical bar set-up, as the customer will then be “serviced” while enjoying their steamy cup of joe. Certainly brings new definition to would you like cream and sugar, right?

A FaceGirl rep claims that they came up with the idea for the cafe from similar Thai establishments and that they expect customers to be in and out of the shop rather quickly, think 5 or 10 minutes, versus other coffee cafes where you can spend a few hours.

Many feel that sex and coffee are a way of life to begin with, however others are not so happy about the cafe opening, as they feel that the men in charge of the project will be the only ones making any profit. Currently the project is a go, however, once it get’s brewing we’ll see how long it lasts.

Make Fried Chicken Like The American Revolutionaries

Jas.Townsend

(PCM) We have discovered a YouTube channel called Jas. Townsend and Son, Inc. that is dedicated to teaching individuals about what life was like for early pioneers living in the 1700’s. It is truly fascinating to study the way that people lived their lives before the advent of current technology began to take over.

The channel’s latest video teaches you how to make fried chicken in the way that our founding fathers would have done it!  We are willing to bet it tastes better than much of our over-processed food that is currently available today.

The recipe comes from Nathan Bailey’s 1736 cookbook, “Dictionarium Domesticum”.  Haven’t you always wanted to bust out your cauldron and cook over natural open flame? There is also a recipe for doughnuts as well, because who doesn’t want a little dessert after dinner. The doughnut recipe comes from  the 1805 American edition of Hannah Glasse’s cookbook, “The Art of Cookery Made Plain and Easy.”

Dad’s Across The Internet Created The Cheerio Challenge And It Rocks!

Cheerio1

(PCM) The latest and arguably the most adorable internet challenge was created by a bunch of dad’s who have now won the internet just in time for Father’s Day.

The #cheeriochallenge was created by a blog called Life Of Dad and consists of asking fathers to stack Cheerio’s cereal on their sleeping babies faces. The challenge has caught on like wildfire and father’s all over are posting adorable images of their babies with stacks of Cheerio’s trying to outdo each other with who can get the highest stack without it falling.

The competition is fierce, as some dad’s have managed to stack as many as 17 cheerio’s on top of their baby’s sleeping heads. Some dad’s are accusing each other of using glue to hold together the stacks of Cheerio’s, but all in all the challenge has been in good fun and spirit. Many also claim that if you lick the Cheerio’s before stacking it helps them stick together or using flavored Apple Cinnamon Cheerio’s assist with making the challenge a bit easier.

Either way it is completely adorable and amazing to see dad’s bonding with their babies just in time for Father’s Day!
