In a bizarre but super convenient promotion for Halloween, UberEATS will be helping their customers, both old and new, get involved in the ghoulish celebrations by offering “trick or treat” packs in collaboration with M&M’s. Today anyone in the UberEATS cities of Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth or Sydney will be able to open up the app and tell a driver to fang it on over to them with a bag of treat-sized chocolates (we’re making the educated guess that M&M’s will be in there among other things) and a Halloween costume, seemingly picked at random or from a selection via the app....

OTT dessert drinks are here to stay, get used to it. Those who embrace the trend have been one-upping each other for awhile now, and legendary queue magnet Burgers By Josh may have just won the game by introducing an alcoholic Golden Gaytime milkshake to the burger joint’s menu at The Annandale. Though a spiked honeycomb ice cream shake should be enough to satisfy those constantly seeking out anything to do with Streets’ sought after creation, the milkshake isn’t quite the end of the story; Doughnut Time have also announced that they are doing limited edition Golden Gaytime Doughnuts from this weekend....

Earlier this year Arnott’s did something very, very bad and ill-advised, inexplicably announcing that they’ll be taking the “if it ain’t broke, break it” approach by changing the recipe for their Shapes range. This unsurprisingly led to frustration and outrage, being that one of the country’s most loved snacks had been completely flipped upside down with new seasoning, seemingly to improve the range’s health rating (which probably works by making you not wanting to eat them at all). Negative feedback forced the brand to backflip on a few flavours eventually – particularly the much-loved BBQ – but the majority of Shapes flavours stuck to the new recipe....
