What's more disturbing than Justin Bieber getting arrested for drunk driving and pretty much ruining the lives of young girls around the globe?

In three words? Shrimp Mayonnaise Doritos.

Yes, this item is actually on sale in Japan through March 17, with the company advertising the flavor as "gourmet."

What else is included in this supposedly deluxe line of Doritos? Favors such as corn soup, Hokkaido camembert cheese and mushrooms with butter and soy sauce.

Try to keep your lunch down as you process this nauseating information and sort through other stomach-turning food ideas:

Deep-Fried Twinkie Burger

Think eating 72 ounces of steak in 161 seconds is gross? Consider a new restaurant coming to Los Angeles.

Adam Fleischman, founder and CEO of Umami Burger, will soon open ChocoChicken, an establishment that serves - yup, you guessed it - chocolate-flavored fried chicken.

"This isn't mole, traditional fried chicken or even chicken just dipped in chocolate," Fleischman says of the product, which he advertises as possessing the "crack factor" he looks for in restaurant brands.

He believes fried chicken "has been largely overlooked in fast-casual restaurants," seeming to have never heard of a certain place that specializes in the Kentucky-based item.

ChocoChicken will also serve biscuits, sides, beer, wine and cocktails and open in March at 403 W. 12th St.

Will you try some chocolate-flavored chicken?

It started as a mere Tweet.

And it has grown into a national debate.

On Saturday night, celebrity chef Grant Achatz Tweeted a complaint that a crying baby inside the restaurant Alinea was causing major problems.

“Tbl brings 8mo.Old. It cries. Diners mad," he wrote. "Tell ppl no kids? Subject diners 2crying? Ppl take infants 2 plays? Concerts? Hate saying no,but..”

Achatz then appeared on Good Morning America and added:

“I could hear it crying in the kitchen. We want people to come in and enjoy and experience Alinea for what it is, but we also have to be cognizant of the other 80 people that came in to experience Alinea that night.”

Achatz's 82,000 Twitter followers seemed split on whether or not babies should actually be banned from expensive restaurants, while we'd rather see some awful Hollywood mothers barred instead.

What do YOU think? Should babies not be allowed in high-end eateries?

Forget the Broncos versus Seahawks, Patriots versus 49ers or whatever Super Bowl matchup will take viewers by storm on Sunday, February 2.

The real competition will be between Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and a new product from Nestlé, one teased in an entertaining new ad and one that will premiere on the day of the Big Game.

The company has released an ad in an anticipation of its Super Bowl commercial and it definitely has us looking forward to the spot almost as much as the game itself.

That's what happens when you place a bunch of food couples in a therapist's waiting room and watch them sneer at each other.

See what we mean now and then decide: how amazing do these Butterfinger Cups sound?!?

For, Molly Schuyler a lot was at stake inside Sayler's Old Country Kitchen in Portland, Oregon this month.

Also, a lot of steak was on her plate.

The competitive eater sat down at the establishment, stared down at 72 ounces of steak… and devoured every piece of the protein-filled meal in 2 minutes and 41 seconds, smashing the previous world record of 6 minutes and 48 seconds for this amount of meat.

Schuyler, a Nebraska native, is currently ranked atop All Pro Eating, an actual organization for professionals who want to compete without contracts.

Congratulations, Molly! We guess! Watch the feat now:

A Seattle mom completed her self-imposed challenge of eating only Starbucks and other stores owned by the coffee giant, like Teavana, for a year.

Yes ... 2013 was The Year of Starbucks for her after she subsisted only on foods and drinks from Starbucks cafes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Beautiful Existence, which appears to be her real name and not just a social media handle, says she’d often thought about taking on such a  task.

She challenged herself to shop only at Goodwill for the entire year of 2011, so this is sort of a thing she does. As for why she went with the Bucks?

B.E.'s sister, a Starbucks employee, had only good things to say, and she liked CEO Howard Schultz’s efforts to foster political and social change.

So when Starbucks launched its Evolution line of juices, soups and salads, "I was convinced that I could do this for an entire year,” said Beautiful, 40.

Red Lobster is closing down across the country, according to rampant Internet rumors about its demise, although its parent company says otherwise.

Owner Darden Restaurants has been trying to quash false reports since Christmas that Red Lobster is shuttering its locations across the nation.

Darden hopes to sell or spin off the Red Lobster chain into another company, but is not "closing any restaurants," spokesman Rich Jeffers clarified.

Still, this afternoon, "Red Lobster closing" was the No. 1 item trending on Yahoo, and the rumor was the subject of Tweets and Facebook posts.

"To clarify, reports that @RedLobster is closing are false," the company tweeted out Friday afternoon. "We're looking forward to your next visit!"

Jeffers said the rumors stemmed from a piece in LA Weekly that "was clearly being facetious" about the shutdown, and blamed today's media culture.

"You had a couple outlets where clearly folks weren't practicing good journalism, and no one called to verify if what they read in LA Weekly was accurate."

The LA Weekly piece had been updated as of Friday to say no restaurants were closing, but the rumors can't be chalked up entirely to a miscommunication.

At the end of the day, these two facts remain undeniably true:

  1. The company is trying to unload or spin off Red Lobster, which is widely believed to be in financial decline, to focus on its growing brands.
  2. Red Lobster is overpriced and not that good.

Diehard fans of Duck Dynasty are planning to display their loyalty by holding a day of appreciation for Phil Robertson at their local Chick-fil-A franchises.

According to the Chick-Phil-A Day Facebook page, Phil Robertson fans are encouraged to wear their "Duck Commander or camouflage gear" to lunch.

The January 21 event planned to "stand for free speech" and "sit for good food" has over 24,000 likes and 60,000 listed attendees since its announcement.

Robertson has been the target of a media firestorm since making comments on gays and gay sex in a GQ magazine interview earlier this month.

The scandal led to his "indefinite suspension" from A&E.

Despite the apparent appropriateness of the location, the Southern-based fast food chain is already working to distance itself from Chick-Phil-A Day.

A new commercial for Coke in Argentina beautifully sums up the wonders of parenthood and all the ups, downs, stains and sleeplessness that go with it.

Bringing another human into the world is a magical feeling, a great responsibility and an experience so rewarding that anything else pales in comparison.

You also get a small, demanding, disgusting new roommate who completely transforms every aspect of existence and wears on your sanity, however.

The Coke TV spot below captures both aspects well. Check it out:

While any new parent knows how the new additions to the household push you to the brink, the effect of this chaos overall is actually (inexplicably) love.

This ad by Santo Buenos Aires and director Pucho Mentasti for Coke's natural Argentine concoction set out to capture this balance of parenting realities.

Oreo cookies are as addictive as cocaine. So are Oreo cookie balls and if you've ever eaten one (or a dozen) of them (in one sitting) you know I'm telling the truth.

Fans of catchy advertising, Oreo commissioned hip-hop artist Jinx for their latest ad which pays tribute to fan-created cookie balls, delightful concoctions made from crushed up Oreos mixed with cream cheese which are then dipped in chocolate. 

The jingle features lines such as "I'm making something I'll be givin' all y'all. Come Christmas morning you gon' taste some cookie balls." and promises that parties where Oreo cookie balls are served will be "off the hook." 

This song is as catchy as Oreo cookie balls themselves.
