Seriously though?

So what do real fashionistas eat for breakfast? No, not Cheerios. How about Burberry Flakes, Gucci Loops, Cartier Crunch or Louis Vuitton Charms? Yeah, that sounds a bit more like it.

Epic win or fail?

Biofuel Caffeinated Popcorn

To say I’m addicted to caffeine is an understatement. Having tried caffeinated cookies, brownies, jerky, and even marshmallows. I’m not sure where the line should be drawn but I’ll try anything once. Allow me to introduce you too Biofuel Caffeinated Popcorn ($3; $7/3-pack). Each five ounce bag of the kettle corn-style popcorn offers 150-200mg of caffeine, or about two energy drinks’ worth. Keep some around the office to stave off afternoon drowsiness, and grab some for your home theater, as well — because how the hell else are you supposed to make it through a LOTR: Extended Edition marathon?

Oh heck yeah…, less pork in my belly the better. I barely eat the stuff as it is. But I can make my spicy black bean burgers taste like bacon? FTW!

Bacon Rub

Having conquered and bacon-ified nearly every other condiment imaginable, lords of the cured pork J&D’s have turned their sights to a longtime grillmaster favorite: the dry rub. Bacon Rub ($6) allows you to give nearly any meat a bacon-wrapped flavor simply by rubbing in this mix of herbs, spices, and brown sugar, while keeping your health in check thanks to its all-natural, Kosher- and vegetarian friendly, zero fat credentials. Conveniently packaged in a 5.2oz jar, which might just last you all the way through summer.

I want, no scratch that; I need this!!! Just as soon as I get a new grill it’s mine.

Smoker Box

Did your gas grill arrive without the wood chip box you crave? Rectify the situation with the Smoker Box ($40). Made from heavy gauge stainless steel, it can be filled with a wide variety wood chips or herbs that sit in the bottom of the box while your meat sits on top of aperforated tray, ready to soak in the flavor. A must have for summer.

Mom always fussed about me inhaling my food I guess now I redeemed. You can already inhale alcohol (I so want to try this) why not food flavors? As good as the chocolate one’s sound, I’m not a big sweets guy. I think I should suggest a bacon flavor and maybe pizza yeah…, that should do it! Genius.

New Diet Trend: Vaporizing Food and Inhaling It

Anorexics, rejoice: With asthma inhalers and vaporizers, inventor David Edwards turns physical food into a cloud, which dieters inhale to “sate chocolate or caffeine cravings” with no more than a single calorie. This is straight out of a futuristic farce.

Edwards’ two inventions, Le Whif (!) and Le Whaf (!!), create edible clouds that exist at the nexus of molecular gastronomy and pro-ana fantasy. Here’s how Le Whif works:

His first experiment with ­breathable food was with Le Whif, a lipstick tube-shaped contraption that works like an asthma pump. But instead of medication, it is filled with powdered chocolate, coffee or vitamins.

‘Whiffers’ put their lips around the base of the tube and breathe in to fill their mouth with the powder. A single puff (one calorie) is supposed to sate chocolate or caffeine ­cravings—and it’s doing surprisingly well. More than 200,000 Whifs sold last year, the majority in the UK (£4, House of Fraser).

Le Whaf is basically an elaborate humidifier, controlled by piezoelectric crystals that vibrate rapidly to turn liquids into gas:

If you want, say, tomato soup, you need to buy a specially-prepared ­liquidised version of the dish made by Edwards’s team, which contains a secret mix of its ‘essences’.

To make the machine work, just press the ‘on’ switch. Within a minute, a cloud of tiny droplets forms in the goldfish bowl.

The cloud can be ­dispensed from a nozzle on the side of Le Whaf. It then stays ­suspended inside the glass for a minute before it sinks.

This, Edwards says, is “good for dieters.” Ten minutes of whiffing results in a caloric intake of a mere 200 calories! (Don’t a lot of foods that take ten minutes to eat have only 200 calories? Like an apple. And you get the added bonus of chewing and swallowing.) No word on what strange effects this will have on your respiratory and, ahem, excretory systems.
