BREAKING PIZZA NEWS: What You Need To Know Before Having Your Next, Delicious Slice.

Published

PizzaA new study is out that determines whether blotting a piece of pizza with a napkin to absorb the grease really amounts to anything. It does, much more than you probably imagine. My enthusiasm about this story is in part because I’ve been on an all-fresh/raw juice diet all day and this is suddenly the only thing I can think about. But let’s get to the meat of the story. Ah…. pepperoni… Okay, I’m focused again… here goes:

A website called Labdoor (which I now will be reading regularly) brilliantly decided to see if it made any difference, and put together an infographic with the results. I’m posting PART of it here… but really to be fair, go visit the article in its entirety.

Pizza Infographic

Researchers used slices from a 14-inch Domino’s pepperoni pizza. Before dabbing, the slice was 117 calories. But after dabbing, it was 76.5 – cutting 40 calories and four and a half grams of fat. Pepperoni is a big grease producer, by the way… you’ve seen that swimming pool of grease collect when the edges of the pepperoni curls up – or in cases where the pepperoni stays flat – it just swims across the entire slice. I’m dying for pizza right now.

Americans eat about 23 pounds of pizza every year, amounting to about 87 slices! But if you blot, you’re shaving off enough calories that it’s as if you’re 66 slices per year.

Count me in!

There is a good reason why the words “cake” and “pimples” rarely exist in the same sentence…

Over in Toronto, cake decorator, Mark Robillard, just created a cake that will have you bursting with excitement. After his husband asked for a cake inspired by the popular, new tv series Dr. Pimple Popper, Robillard took to his YouTube page to show off his gnarly creation. On his channel, Epic Confections, the cake decorator based his cake design on the board game “Pimple Pete,” complete with POPPABLE PIMPLES! That’s right, using fondant and Venetian cream, Robillard covers “Pete’s” face in pimples that once squeezed, will ooze just enough to make you lose your appetite.

This acne-covered confectionary is just one of the impressive cakes that Robillard displays on his channel. The other’s are more awe-inspiring than stomach churning, I swear. If you aren’t too squeamish, click the video below to see just how this zit hit was made!
