Darryl Robinson, host of the Cooking Channel's Drink Up program, was found dead in his New York City apartment yesterday. He was just 50 years old.

Per NY1 and the New York Post, police responded to a friend's concerned call about Robinson and found no immediate signs of forced entry or trauma.

There were no drugs or drug paraphernalia found in the apartment, police said, and the investigation into the death of the mixologist is still ongoing.

A medical examiner will determine Darryl Robinson's cause of death. No foul play is expected at this time. The Cooking Channel released a statement:

"Upon learning of this sad news, our thoughts go out to Darryl's family & friends."

His show, Drink Up, aired in 2010 and can still be seen in repeats. Besides Drink Up, he made appearances on Access Hollywood, The Wendy Williams Show and Today.

Our condolences to those close to Robinson, another star gone too soon.

Sunday's Coca-Cola Super Bowl commercial, which featured U.S. citizens singing “America the Beautiful” in various languages, was generally well received.

Just not by the Twitter-verse, where many users were live-tweeting the event and quickly lambasted the brand as un-American, or even a terrorist organization.

Seriously. People were aghast that there are human beings living in America who don't speak English, and that Coke might feature them in advertising.

Check out 23 of the most racist, disapproving, confused and hate-filled Tweets about the controversial Coca-Cola Super Bowl commercial below ...

You're S--t is Rank
You're grammar is pretty rank, too, Earl Williams Jr. Maybe go study for your GED instead of Tweeting your pearls of infinite wisdom?

The TV spot inspired a handful of hashtags, including #SpeakAmerican and #boycottcoke as xenophobic bullies everywhere threw up their arms in disgust.

A lot of people also loved its message of inclusion and multiculturalism, though. The vocal minority is just ... vocal. Tell us: What do you think of the ad?

Molly Schuyler went to WORK Friday at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

By DEVOURING an eye-popping 363 chicken wings in a HALF HOUR, the 5-foot-7, 125-pound mother of four set a new record at Wing Bowl 22.

The previous record was held by Takeru Kobayashi, who ate 337 in 2012.

Schuyler, from Omaha, Neb., didn't exactly cruise to the crown, narrowly edging Patrick Bertoletti, whose 356 wings mark the second most consumed.

Jamie "The Bear" Anderson, last year's champion, was third with 304.

For the gutsy effort that may or may not entail puking her guts out later, Molly Schuyler won the $22,000 top prize, a gold medal and a championship ring.

Meet Park Seo-yeon, a South Korean woman, makes $9,000 a month from fans who like to watch her eat for hours each day, according to reports.

Known as "The Diva" online, Seo-yeon cooks up elaborate meals, sits down and ingests them in front of a camera, all while chatting with her adoring fans.

Who pay handsomely for the privilege of doing so, obviously.

Almost surprisingly, there is no sex or nudity involved. Nor is there remote suggestion of it. Any hoovering she does involves food and food alone.

The web craze is called "Meok-Bang" and it cures loneliness and hunger pangs ... seriously. This is a thing and it's reportedly common in South Korea.

"People enjoy the vicarious pleasure of my online show when they can't eat that much, don't want to eat food at night, or are on a diet," Seo-yeon said.

It boils down in part to demographics:

You want fries and a vial of heroin with that? A Pittsburgh McDonald's employee was arrested for dealing the drug using Happy Meal boxes, according to reports.

People would roll up to the drive-thru window and use the code phrase, "I'd like to order a toy," at which point the accused employee would hook them up.

Customers more in the mood for hard drugs than Big Macs were allegedly instructed to order this way, then pick up their "order" at the next window.

Undercover officers from a local narcotics enforcement team made a buy from the accused employee after being tipped off by an informant, officials said.

DA spokesman Mike Manko told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that undercover officers bought 10 bags of heroin in stamp-sized packets from the location.

Another 50 bags were found on the employee's person after making the buy.

Move over, shrimp mayonnaise Doritos. Candy maker Jelly Belly has come out with a new beer-flavored jelly bean. No, this is not a story on The Onion.

The company's latest release is meant to emulate the “effervescent, clean, crisp and wheaty taste” of a German Hefeweizen ale ... because obviously.

The new flavor has polarized candy lovers.

Beer-Flavored Jelly Beans

Thousands are thrilled by the new flavor, but a number of people are up in arms, saying it will encourage underage drinking or alcoholics relapsing.

“I am so angry and disappointed about this decision,” Facebook user Mindy Chemaki wrote. “I have been a big fan of Jelly Belly since I was 13."

"Now you have developed a flavor that that may encourage minors (like I was 20+ years ago or my children today) to develop a substance abuse problem."

Amy Mehalko added on a similar note, “It’s just so wrong to have this flavor. Very disappointed. Why not just make a cigarette flavor while your at it.”

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:

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?!?
