World's Finest Nachos

Doing any entertaining this holiday season? Might I humbly suggest serving something with a distinct fanboy flavor? If you are interested, here's a simple recipe with complex ingredients:Step 1: You'll need procure a bag of Batman Tortilla Chips. Hopefully you aren't too worried about issues like freshness as the haven't been sold in about 20 years. But to make up for this little quirk they come in bat shapes. (That may be hard to see in the picture so you'll just have to take my word for it.)
Step 2: To paraphrase Captain Christopher Pike: You can settle for a less than ordinary cheese or do you feel like you were meant for something special? And what's more special than "Superman Pasteurized Process Imitation Cheese Spread?"

Even though it's from the 1960's, you might not have to worry about the freshness factor as I'm not sure if this substance could possibly go bad. "Superman Pasteurized Process Imitation Cheese Spread" is its own alpha and omega. It was here before us and will most likely be here after we're gone. Hungry yet?

Step 3: How about a little flavor? Give your finicky party guests some options when it comes to their heroic hors d'oeuvres. Because if you are okay with eating 20 year old chips and 45 year old imitation cheese then a spicy sauce made from a radioactive extraterrestrial rock shouldn't be much of a big deal to you.
At least the warnings labels on both the red and green Kryptonite Hot Sauce are clear and straightforward:
Now that you've assembled your ingredients it's time to cook. Below is an instructional video detailing the complicated steps of assembling nachos:

And now you're ready to entertain your guests with novelty food and speedy trips to the emergency room. And isn't that really what the holidays are all about?

Novelty Candies Assemble!

Santa Claus brought us some new treats this year: "Marvel Heroes Taffy." As I said before, I wish the super hero food genre would branch out past the candy aisle a little more often but in an imperfect world we take what we can get.

Don't get me wrong though, I think Marvel Heroes Taffy could stuff a stocking quite nicely and would bring some much needed superhero hullabaloo to the holiday season. Although would it have killed the candy makers to add little Santa hats to all the characters? Or at least the Hulk?And now for the roll call:

Wolverine Strawberry flavor (wha?), Spider-Man Blue Raspberry (a few years ago the powers-that-be decided that all things Spider-Man should be Blue Raspberry flavor, perhaps the mysterious waves that irradiated the spider that bit young Peter Parker is the same radiation that turns raspberries blue?), Hulk Sour Apple (it was either going to be that or lime flavor) and Captain America Cherry (because you can't have "Red, White & Blue " without red...and...uh...cherries are red...).

But the real reason to make the trip to the Dollar Store is shrouded in mystery:

Mystery flavor!?! Oh Tony Stark, what have you done this time?

Yes, it's true, for some reason Iron Man was blessed (cursed?) with the Mystery Flavor. But what is it? Peach? Lemon? Egg Salad? I just can't tell. Undoubtedly more research is required to solve this mystery.


Until then you now have something new to add to your taffy pull list.
