The Entirety Of Philadelphia Might Get Free Beer


By Cooking Panda

2018’s Super Bowl LII finds the Philadelphia Eagles against the New England Patriots, who’ve won the last four world championships and most clearly dominate this year’s game.

In the spirit of the Super Bowl, football fans and the like become steadily enraptured in the weeks leading up to game day. People start throwing out outrageous and regrettable promises as some sort of superstitious precaution perhaps to “speak” to the Football Gods that be (or maybe the football players themselves) using the power of self-imposed subjugation.

“I’ll chug jar of pickle juice if Nick Foles outperforms Tom Brady,” and “I’ll do the laundry, wash the dishes, and clean the toilet for a whole month if the first offensive play of the game is a pass made by Dion Lewis,” and “If the Eagles win, I’ll give each of my three kids a new iPhone.” Well, some bets are better left hedged.

For example, Bud Light’s latest dopamine tease: If the Philadelphia Eagles managed to beat Tom Brady’s team, the Anheuser-Busch brand will give free beer to all of Philadelphia. The risk-to-reward ratio is far more difficult to stomach than, as Grub Street put it, “beer-flavored water.” But Philadelphians, who have nothing to lose from Bud Light’s marketing opportunity, are psyched at the idea of a paid bar tab on one of the biggest drinking days of the year.

Lane Johnson, Eagles right tackle, first suggested a free beer offer in 2017 at the beginning of the season when he told an ESPN reporter that he had a lot to prove to Philadelphia citizens. “If we win a Super Bowl, I’m giving out beer to everybody,” Johnson said.

Bud Light quickly scooped up the suggestion, tweeting the next day, “Let’s make a bet. Win it all and the party is on us. Deal?”

To spare the team from an unintentional jinx, the company has not yet said explicitly what a well-deserved victory by the Eagles would mean for thirsty Philadelphia fans. The company announced on Twitter on Jan. 22 that they intend to “keep things under wraps until the winner of the Super Bowl is determined.” You know, no pressure, Eagles.

‘The Rock’ Just Broke The Record For Biggest Chip Dip (Video)


By Cooking Panda

In the spirit of the Super Bowl, Guinness World Records was compelled to slap a certificate on the world’s largest ever … 7-layer chip dip. Made with all the favorites, including refried beans and guac, the dip was created and recorded via a Facebook Live stream, and the final product weighed in at a whopping 540 pounds!

Delish reports that this project was commissioned by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his manager and production partner Dany Garcia. As you’ll see in the video below, the dip is so gigantic that it has to be stored in a 100-gallon fish tank. The layers are made up of about 154 pounds of refried beans, 77 quarts of sour cream with 10 pounds of seasoning mixed into it, 77 pounds of cheese, 38 quarts each of guacamole and tomatoes, 19 quarts of green onions and finally, 37 quarts of black olives. I think this dip could feed a small country!

The dip took a total of five hours to make, but don’t worry, the video doesn’t capture that entire timespan. It does, however, take about 32 minutes to conclude.

If you want to make your own version of this dip at home (preferably a much smaller version), you can check out what they do in the video and mimic their moves with smaller portion sizes. Start with a layer of refried beans, evened out along the bottom of your dish. Next, mix your sour cream with McCormick’s Taco Seasoning to get a nice taco flavor incorporated into it, and then spread that along the top of the refried beans as the next layer.

The next step is dumping pounds and pound of cheese on top as the next layer. I mean that figuratively, not literally, unless you’re trying to duplicate this insanely sized recipe. Next is a layer of guacamole and then a tomato layer, followed by green onions and lastly, black olives (leave those off of mine!).

In order for any food to actually qualify for a Guinness World Records title, it must be consumed. Otherwise, lots of food could get pointlessly wasted. Therefore, the dip will go to a charity to feed the homeless. What I want to know is, how did they get it there?
