A ‘Seinfeld’ Fan Tests The New Coffee Bean ‘Friends’ Menu

NBC / UPROXX Friends, frankly, I’m not digging it. There is a not-so-silent war being waged deep in the underbelly of the internet over which is the superior sitcom of the 90s.

We Tasted McDonald’s Mysterious Big Vegan ‘Fake Meat’ Burger And Have Some Thoughts

McDonald Vegans and plant-based folks rejoice! The “fake” meat revolution is upon us (fake because it’s plant product imitating animal product, not because it’s not real food).
