Most food items don't make it into the news regularly -- unless, of course, you're Twinkies and life as you've known it for half a century is about to end, then unceremoniously come back again.

Sriracha, the most beloved hot sauce across the universe, on the other hand, is constantly popping up on fans' feeds; it's burning people's sinuses and the factory has to be shut down one day; it's been pardoned by a judge the next.

The Rooster is making headlines once again. San Jose-based catering company Moveable Feast just announced its plans for an Electronic Sriracha Festival, a celebration of all things sriracha and EDM.

While we're not sure what to make of this -- is it awesome or terrible? -- we've decided to compile a list of the three best foods flavored with the best chili sauce ever known to man.

Three Recipes to Indulge in for National Crème Brûlée Day, July 27

Crmebrle.jpg
Wikipedia

Consider the noble crème brûlée; in its individual ramekin, fortressed against the world with its flambéed shell of sugary glass jealously guarding the wholesome custard from thine whetted mouth. Ah... with the stamina such a dulcet surprise would promise one could be rather steadfast in the composing of poesies in the name of such a splendid and sweet end to any meal.

My father, a gentleman of jolly disposition and good breeding, in a bout of fancy took my family to France in the summer of my sixteenth year. A Francophile byproduct of French colonialism via Lebanon, my father is a French-speaker and lover of French culture and a gourmand of imposing knowledge and exemplary tastes.

On this trip we had the pleasure of lunching at the Au Pied de Cochon brasserie in les Halles, just a short skip from the Rue du Louvre. A fantastic meal by any standards and thoroughly French; slow and multi-layered. While I've never been one for sweets or rather, for ruining such savory splendors with the vulgarity of dessert, I was becoming rather annoyed by the old man's insistence that I "make room for dessert."

What's inside?
If you want to know what's in your Chicken McNuggets, you can find the ingredients online...though McDonald's doesn't make it easy for you.

The ingredients are listed on page eight of a 20 page PDF document on the company's website, making it difficult to just search for without having to hunt for the nuggets in question.

Did you ever walk into an Applebee's, enticed by the cool sexy drawl of actor (and spokesperson) John Corbett, only to find you'd love to chat with the person enjoying his Two for Twenty combo dinner?

Well, you're in luck, because everyone's favorite "neighborhood" dining chain is now home to WhatsApplebee's, a new iPhone app that allows you to chat with other patrons. Here's the kick -- it works only at Applebee's.

The app, termed "a project by Mike Lazer-Walker" is "Not affiliated, associated, authorized, endorsed by, or in any way officially connected with Applebee's International, Inc., or any of its subsidaries or affiliates." What it is is a seemingly legit app, downloadable on the iTunes store that does work...albeit only at your local "neighborhood" restaurant chain.

The whatsapplebees.com website states that "using our iPhone app, you can have anonymous conversations with other Applebee's patrons and brand advocates."

Enchanting hat made from a Pizza Hut box.
The Kentucky Derby is so much more than a horse race. It's an iconic celebration of all things inherently Southern. Gentlemen wear seersucker suits and drink mint juleps out of pewter cups. Ladies wear flowered dresses and outrageous hats. Horses are showered with roses.

If you're not planning a trip to Louisville, there are Derby watch parties all over South Florida where you can drink bourbon, watch the "fastest two minutes in sports" and wear a silly hat. What? You don't have a hat? You still have plenty of time to get creative. Just pick up the phone, order a pizza from Pizza Hut and break out the glue and scissors.

Better than carnations.
We get it...everyone loves fried chicken. It's golden crispy shell hides moist, slightly salty meat. It's savory, juicy, and decadent. Plus...fried.

But there's got to be a limit to our eternal love for a bucket of finger lickin' goodness. Or is there?

Do we love fried chicken so much we'd wear it....to prom?

That's the question Kentucky Fried Chicken asks in their new #HowDoYouKFC campaign, where the Colonel is offering fried chicken fans actual fried chicken corsages for sale.

Yes...they're real.

Hes's got lunch...but no name.
You've seen him before on the side of the BC Tacos food truck and seen him at the BC Cafe -- but did you realize that that poor caveman never had a name?

Scandalous, really, but finally BC Tacos' owner, Brett Chiavari, is prepared to give his adorable, neanderthal mascot a title -- because even a caveman gets annoyed at being referred to as "buddy" and "pal" forever.
