Review: Herr’s Old Bay Cheese Curls & FUTURE NOW! Cheating at Math, Cookie Dunking, and HOVERBOARDS
Junk Food Nation, the future is here! Let’s get right to today’s topics.
1. TECHNOLOGY MAKING IT EASY TO CHEAT AT MATH!
Hey, remember when you took Algebra in high school? Remember all those painstaking hours spent trying to finish assignments in pencil, the bottom of your hand blackened with graphite? Trying to net those gold stars to bring your GPA up? #NerdAlert …………..Ah AP Calculus. The last time I was ever cool.
Anyways, all of that is unnecessary because now an app called PhotoMath has MADE THINKING OBSOLETE! YAY:
That’s right, people! You just take a picture of the problem, and the app solves it for you, and even provides each step to solving it so you can copy it and pretend to be smart! After a few generations the human race won’t know how to do anything! Huzzah!
2. TECHNOLOGY MAKING IT EASIER TO DUNK COOKIES, BECAUSE IT WAS SO FRIGGIN HARD BEFORE!
Check out The Dunkin’ Buddy, which is a contraption that lets you dunk cookies into milk without getting your fingers wet. Because, hey, world famine – yeah you deal with that a little longer, third world countries. BUT MILKY WET FINGERTIPS IN AMERICA NOOOOO GET SCIENCE ON THIS NOW NOW NOW.
It’s basically a magnetized little tray that sits inside the cup of milk that you place the cookies in, and then a corresponding magnet outside the glass that holds the tray in place and moves the tray up and down as you slide the outside magnet up and down. It’s so simple, right? The Kickstarter failed, but this item is getting plenty of pub online, plus it gave us this gem of a video:
The way the beginning cookie sequence happens is fantastic – the jamming of the hand into the cookie glass, the pounding of the table. I love it. Other highlights: nice cleavage on the girl, and perfect in-sync reading at the end.
3. HOVERBOARDS ARE EFFING REAL
It’s been all over social media with the actual date Marty McFly went into the future approaching (October 21, 2015!), but HOVERBOARDS ARE FRIGGIN HAPPENING:
Sure these prototype hoverboards cost $10,000 and you can only ride it on a pre-established metal surface that also has thousands of dollars worth of magnets contained within it BUT HOVERBOARDS ARE EFFING REAL. THE KICKSTARTER IS HERE. REAL, DAMNIT.

Today’s junk food: Herr’s Old Bay Cheese Curls!
Junk Food Nation, if you’re from Maryland, or even from the surrounding area, chances are you’ve heard of, and enjoy, Old Bay. I’ll get to what Old Bay is in a second – but basically, like Frank’s Red Hot for me, you put that sh*t on everything. I’ve known Marylanders to add Old Bay to crabs, crabcakes, fish, Bloody Marys, pineapple, and more. So Herr’s pairing up with Old Bay is a match made in heaven for me. They have Old Bay Potato Chips and Old Bay Popcorn, but I was most excited about these Herr’s Old Bay Cheese Curls.
According to Wiki, Old Bay seasoning mix “includes mustard, paprika, celery salt, bay leaf, black pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, mace, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, cardamom, and ginger.” Don’t get that stuff in your eyes though – IT BURNS.
Herr’s Old Bay Cheese Curls have a crab on the bag. YES.
When i opened the bag of Herr’s Old Bay Cheese Curls, I could immediately smell the Old Bay. I mean, it was unmistakable. Spicy, seafood-y, pepper-y – it smelled EXACTLY like Old Bay. A little bit of clove smell too. It smelled perfect.
Each of these Herr’s Old Bay Cheese Curls was solidly coated with cheese powder and a healthy sprinkling of Old Bay. I’m not sure if these pics get across how orange these were. COATED.
I popped one into my mouth and chewed – PERFECTION. I mean, wow, Herr’s. You knocked this one of the park.
The cheese curl itself was nice and light, and was not overly stiff – I could easily crush the curl with my tongue against the roof of my mouth. I didn’t feel like I was going to shred the roof of my mouth with sharp corn puff edges. These were a wonderful texture.
The flavor of these Herr’s Old Bay Cheese Curls was SPOT ON. The cheddar cheese powder was nice and cheesy, with plenty of sharpness that perfectly complimented the spice of the Old Bay seasoning. The resultant flavor, combing the cheese and the Old Bay, was super tangy and reminded me of the savory notes I tasted when adding Old Bay to seafood items. The flavor was creamy and sharp at the same time, and was BOLD – there was no underseasoning here. In fact, I’d say the powerful punch of the flavor might be a bit much for some people…but for me, these were ideal.
AWESOME JOB, Herr’s. You highlighted the Old Bay perfectly while not hiding the cheese flavor. LOVE THESE.
