With Hostess leaving this world and taking its sugary baked goods with it, Fat City wanted to remember what the creme-filled confectioner has meant to all of us. In case Twinkies don't return (which truly might be the end of the world for some), we thought we'd point to the five most memorable Hostess cameos in film.

Five drinks you should be pairing with the Chiefs this year

Posted By on Tue, Sep 4, 2012 at 10:21 AM

Esquire published a list pairing beers with NFL teams and determined that your Kansas City Chiefs go best with Boulevard's 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat. While I have to give some praise for being up on the latest releases from Boulevard, Hoppy Wheat is not the first liquor that comes to mind when I'm thinking of the Chiefs.

I'm thinking copious amounts of booze (either in victory or to wipe away the taste of defeat) and as a result, I've put together a list of five recommended liquor pairings for the 2012 Kansas City Chiefs.

  • There are five questions sure to bring on a chef's sad face.
It's a good decision to keep the people with knife skills in your life happy. The barrier has broken down more between the dining room and the kitchen, giving diners more opportunity to get the chef's blood boiling. It's not often a question of intent, but rather what happens after you open your mouth. Here are the five questions that chefs wish you wouldn't ask them.

Cities have been outlawing salt and trans fats, and requiring full disclosure on menus for years. But it's time that Kansas City took the next step. I think we need to ban several foods originating in other cities, the dishes that are intrinsic to those municipalities in the same way that KC lays claim to burnt ends. It's not enough to re-create another place's specialty; you've got to be able to overcome a lack of history, geographic relevance and potentially secret ingredients.

Here are the top five iconic city dishes that should be banned from this city.

The world has had a few days to digest the news that Pizza Hut has managed to smuggle a hot dog in its pizza crust for a new menu item available in the United Kingdom. Here's The Guardian's delightful take on the pizza-strosity:

I soon neared the end of my slice and its bedoughed, pink-brown phallus. I took a tentative bite. It was a hot dog sausage. It was rubbery and processed and salty and smoky. How, in its own filthy way, could it be anything other than delicious?

Indeed. Since Pizza Hut has clearly defined the future of pizza, Fat City has decided to offer five more pizza-crust frontiers that we should strive to cross in the coming years.
