Serve Your Spaghetti with Some Pasta Monsters

A few years back, we came across a pasta strainer inspired by the famed Flying Spaghetti Monster. Now you can turn any bowl of noodles into a pasta monster with this pair of serving utensils that look like a couple of googly alien eyeballs.

Made by Animi Causa, these Pasta Monster serving spoons actually will turn any food you serve into a monster, but they look best sitting in a big bowl of spaghetti or linguine. The pair includes one noodle-draining spoon, and one regular spoon, so I suppose you could use them individually to make some kind of serving cyclops.

They’re made of BPA-free, dishwasher safe plastic, and are guaranteed to give your guests a laugh when you put your serving bowl down on the dining table. You can grab the Pasta Monsters set over at Animi Causa for just $19.99.

Flying Spaghetti Monster Colander Perfect for Pastafarians

When it comes to making pasta, there are few things I dislike more than watery tomato sauce. The trick is to make sure your noodles are properly strained to get out all the excess water before you mix them with your red gravy. If your old pasta strainer is clogged up, or just plain boring, it’s time to upgrade. This Spaghetti Monster colander should do the trick nicely.

Designed by Lior Rokah Kor of housewares shop OTOTO, this colander turns your bowl of spaghetti into a flying spaghetti monster – like the one worshipped by the Pastafarians – members of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, a lighthearted religion (partially) explained in the video below:

Whether or not you convert to Pastafarianism, anyone can enjoy their spaghetti in this wonderful noodle strainer. It’s available for pre-order now for $18(USD), and starts shipping this September.

Donuts Made from Spaghetti… YES PLEASE

Donuts are usually the domain of sweet eats for early morning gobbling. You can get some savory donuts though, like the bacon maple variety that the fancy gas station up the street from me gets fresh every morning. They are as yummy as you would expect something with bacon on it to be. In Brooklyn, you can now get donuts made of spaghetti.

Yes, it’s a pasta donut and it sounds yummy. Pop Pasta’s special donut is a bastardization of a classic Neapolitan dish known as the spaghetti pie. The donut is baked with cheese and other goodies, and they’re meant to be eaten at room temp or warmed up. They look super yummy and I want one right now.

Pasta Pops: Spaghetti-Flavored Popsicles

If there’s one place where spaghetti-flavored popsicles would exist, then it would be Japan. True enough, frozen treats that are packaged and sold as being spaghetti-flavored are available in the land of the rising sun.

To the adventurous, this is just another unique treat to try. For others, it’s something to avoid at all costs.

Icy tomatoes and bits of meat don’t exactly sound like a very delectable frozen treat. However, while the image above of the spaghetti popsicles have made the rounds on the Internet, its actual taste hasn’t been confirmed yet. It could be that it’s packaged as spaghetti popsicles in the sense that it’s the color of tomato sauce when it’s mushed with the pasta, though I prefer to assume that it’s made from actual spaghetti and meatballs.

Gari-Gari Kun, the company that makes these popsicles, also make Corn Pottage and Rice Cakes with Bean Paste-flavored popsicles.

Pizzaghetti Sloche: Slurp Your Pizza and Drink Your Spaghetti

Pizza and spaghetti are probably two of the most popular junk food items that people both young and old enjoy. They’re not the healthiest things on the menu, but if you’re just looking for a quick bite to eat, then what’s quicker or easier to pick up than pizza or pasta?

It’s about to get even quicker albeit colder with Canadian convenience store chain Couche-Tard’s new offerings: Pizzaghetti Sloche, aka pizza and spaghetti slushies.


If you barfed a little in your mouth at the thought of that, then you’re not alone. I honestly love pizza and spaghetti – the kind that you chew and swallow, not the kind you slurp – so I’m not sure what Couche-Tard was thinking with their newest slushy treat.

As you can see, each flavor has a different slush serve machine. The pizza sloche is on the left, while the spaghetti sloche is on the right. Taste them separately, mix both together…the choice is yours.

Not everything is as it seems though. Comments left by Redditors who had access to a Pizzaghetti sloche machine claim that the pizza slush tastes like strawberry, while the spaghetti slush tastes like lemon.

Does that bit make you more keen to try it… or did it leave you a bit disappointed?
