What’s more appetizing than Spam? Spam nuts! The Hamakua Macadamia Nut Company makes a bunch of different flavors of macadamia nuts: Black Peppah, Butter Garlic and Herbs, Hula Jalapeno. But really, the only flavor you need to know about is Spam. That’s right. Spam mac nuts. Go nuts, Spam people!
PSA: Also available on Amazon, but it is less expensive to get them directly from the company in Hawaii. Plus,then you can add some “peppah” nuts to your order to wash down (or burn away) the taste of Spam!

You say tomato, I say potato. Thompson & Morgan says TomTato.
What does it all mean? Well, as others have pointed out, this means that the TomTato is a ketchup and fries plant. It is a tomato plant grafted on to potato roots. It’s called the TomTato and it’s available from Thompson & Morgan.
It’s okay if you want to call the whole thing off.

You know what to do if your pumpkin survives pumpkin-smashing night, right? Turn it into a pumpkin drink dispenser with The Pumpkin Tap Kit!
Actually, you might want to use a fresh one, considering the tap turns the gourd into a big ol’ drink dispenser. And besides, those jack-o-lantern eyes, nose and mouth kind of make it hard to fill up with liquid.

Three hours is not enough. That’s how long the First Annual Sriracha Festival will last.
Randy Clemens, author of two of the easiest books ever to be written in the history of ever (The Sriracha Cookbook: 50 “Rooster Sauce” Recipes that Pack a Punch and The Veggie-Lover’s Sriracha Cookbook: 50 Vegan “Rooster Sauce” Recipes that Pack a Punch) is behind the idea along with Josh Lurie of Food GPS.
Considering that Sriracha goes with everything, perhaps there will be some surprises at the L.A. Sriracha Festival. It will cost you about $50 to find out on Sunday, October 27, from 3 pm to 6 pm at LOT 613 in the downtown L.A. Arts District. Or, you could just take that $50, go grocery shopping and just squirt some of that delicious, delicious hot sauce on anything and everything you buy. It will taste good.
Then again, the festival is officially sponsored by the maker of the iconic condiment, Huy Fong Foods and David Tran will be making a special appearance. Shaking the hand of the man who changed condiment history might be worth it alone. Be sure to lick your fingers afterward.
