Ben & Jerry's, the Vermont-based ice cream known company for its celebrity-inspired flavors (remember Schweddy Balls?) has announced a new flavor named after late night's brightest star, Jimmy Fallon.

The ice cream, aptly named the Tonight Dough, was introduced last week during the season-two premiere of Fallon's Tonight Show. Ben & Jerry's cofounders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield served up the frosty treat, a combination of caramel and chocolate ice creams with chocolate cookie swirls, chocolate chip cookie dough, and peanut butter cookie dough, to the live audience.

There's a new place to get a well-built sandwich in downtown Hollywood. J28, which opened several months ago, is taking the whole fast-casual model and giving it a Peruvian twist.

Founded by brothers and Peruvian natives Marco and Javier Rondon, the sanguchería at the heart of Young Circle on the outskirts of the city's downtown restaurant row is an Americanized take on the country's sandwich shop.

Hoffman's Chocolates Opens Three More Holiday Pop-Up Kiosks

The Las Olas store.

Almost 40 years ago, Paul Hoffman Sr. had a simple dream fueled by the purchase of a small chocolate shop in Lake Worth: He wanted to have a place for his family to work. As noble a goal as that sounds, Hoffman was also a bit of an experimenter in the kitchen and soon used this platform to invent confections like the "Pecan Caramel Jitterbugs" and the "Snoodle." Spring forward to 2014 and the Hoffman's Chocolates empire has risen to several retail operations throughout South Florida with a factory and headquarters in Greenacres that has become a popular stop for tourists in Palm Beach.

But it is during holiday season that Hoffman's really gets its chocolatier guns out. Known for elaborate displays and award-winning gift baskets, Hoffman's Chocolates will be a holiday fixture for some time, and by embracing the trendy concept of the pop-up this coming season, it'll surely be within the reach of shoppers all the way through to Valentine's Day.

Wapo Taco: Authentic Mexican Taqueria in Hallandale Beach

Categories: First Look

If your idea of traditional Mexican food involves rice and refried beans, you might be surprised to find out that Wapo Taco serves neither. Instead, the authentic Mexican taqueria, which originally opened in Mexico City as El Farolito circa 1962, serves gringas, volcanes, costras, and tacos.

Half a century and 25 taquerias later, Francisco Musi decided to bring the concept to the States, opening in Hallandale Beach on September 15, which just so happened to be Mexican Independence Day.

"It's not fast-casual, it's not a restaurant, it's a taqueria," says managing partner Michael Berkman. So what does that mean? Organic tortillas made on a traditional comal smuggled straight from Mexico and loaded with grass-fed beef and charcoal-grilled pork or chicken (also known as "al pastor" in Mexico).

Dunkin' Donuts' Croissant Donut: We Try One

The Dunkin' Croissant Donut is here.
Dunkin' Donuts has just launched its new croissant donut, a hybrid of the best of American and French artery-cloggers.

The pastry, which hit the streets this week, is the fast-food, mass-produced version of Dominique Ansel's cronut, which still causes mass hysteria and hours-long waits at his Soho bakery in New York City. The trademarked pastry even has its own rules attached to it, including the suggestion that you arrive prior to 7 a.m. to claim your treat, which sells for $5. There's also a two-cronut minimum and a no-holding-a-place-for-friends rule.

Until now, restaurants and shops that have tried to make their own versions of the croissant/donut hybrid have been greeted with pushback from Ansel's people, who fiercely protect the pastry as it it were a cure for Ebola. So much so, that Clean Plate Charlie was actually warned not to use the name "cronut" in an article about Disney's Epcot offering croissant donuts.

Fort Lauderdale has come a long way in its dining scene over the past few years, but the city has been lagging behind in the Asian department all along.

Sure, there have been Chinese restaurants, a Vietnamese spot, a million Thai-sushi joints, and a recently opened modern Asian concept on Las Olas (Bao Las Olas); however, for those who crave the full-flavored fare found across the continent, there has been much to be desired.

Until now.

The brand new Temple Street Eatery is now offering fast-casual modern Asian fare, craft beer, interesting sake, and wines at prices even the most budget-conscious can afford.

Ah, pumpkin spice is in the air -- but sadly, not your bedroom.

Maybe you saw the fake photo of Durex's "newly-released" pumpkin spice condom, and got excited -- only to have your autumnal wet dreams ruined when the company made light of the doctored photo, revealing it as a hoax via Twitter.

Luckily, if you're planning on spicing things up in the bedroom -- yes, even without pumpkin spice-flavored latex -- we're willing to bet there are still plenty of fun food-flavored condoms you may not even be aware of.
