Arby's Trolls Vegans and Impossible Burger Fans by Making 'Carrots' Made Entirely of Meats

Arby's Trolls Vegans and Impossible Burger Fans by Making 'Carrots' Made Entirely of Meats

Introducing “Marrots” — the all-meat vegetable that says take a hike, Impossible Burgers.

On Wednesday, Arby’s unveiled its latest innovative creation, which looks just like a carrot, but don’t be fooled vegetarians — it is actually all meat, raising the promise of their slogan “We Have the Meats” to a whole new level.

The “Marrot” is the first release of the “Megetables,” which is Arby’s form of competition (and trolling) against other fast-food companies that are attempting to create meat-free menu items. This includes Burger King, which recently released The Impossible Burger, a meatless, plant-based burger patty.

According to Arby’s press release, the Marrot was conceptualized by Arby’s brand Executive Chef, Neville Craw, and his sous-chef, Thomas Kippelen. The meat-based carrot contains more than 30 grams of protein and more than 70 percent of the recommended daily amount of Vitamin A.

Wondering how to make your own “Marrot?” Look no further than this video on YouTube, which perfectly details the process that comes with creating the meat-based vegetable.

The ingredients include: turkey breast, salt and white pepper and cheese cloth, cooked via sous vide.

After, dried carrot juice powder is added to give it the aesthetic of a carrot, a perfect result for anybody looking to trick their vegetarian friend into taking a bite of this meat-filled product.

“Plant-based meats are the latest incarnation of making vegetables look like what Americans really want, which is great, tasty meat,” Jim Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer for Arby’s, said in a statement.

Along with Burger King, McDonalds also recently joined the meatless burger trend, with the first version of its very own vegan burger, the Big Vegan TS, which is only sold in Germany so far.

“We’ve never created anything like this,” Craw said. “But most of the product development Arby’s works on is new to the industry. That’s the exciting part of this job;

Thomas Ravenel Puts His $3.9M South Carolina Plantation on the Market Amid Ongoing Legal Issues

Thomas Ravenel Puts His $3.9M South Carolina Plantation on the Market Amid Ongoing Legal Issues

Thomas Ravenel is selling his longtime South Carolina home.

The Southern Charm star, 56, recently listed his Brookland Plantation property on the market for $3,950,000. He originally purchased the home in 2006 and has lived there for the past 13 years.

According to the property listing, the historic estate on Edisto Island, estimated to be about 60 total acres, boasts four bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, and 4,284-square-feet.

It also includes an eight-acre polo field, a two-story, multi-stall horse barn, and a private two-bedroom apartment.

Ravenel deciding to put his home on the market comes amid his ongoing custody dispute over his two children — St. Julien Rembert (Saint), 3, and Kensington Calhoun (Kensie), 5 — with ex-girlfriend Kathryn Dennis.

It also comes just a few weeks after Dennis, 26, moved out of the pricey, five-story townhouse that she was renting for herself and their two kids, citing the financial burden of the custody case for part of the reason she decided to leave.

Ravenel currently shares 50/50 custody with his ex, but Dennis recently filed documents in Charleston seeking to obtain primary custody of their children as Ravenel awaits trial after being charged with assault, which he denies.

In September, Ravenel was arrested and charged with assault and battery in the second degree after a former nanny accused him of rape. After the arrest, it was announced that Ravenel would not return to Southern Charm.

Southern Charm airs Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.

Florida Man Charged with Busch Gardens Flamingo Pinky's Death Is Fatally Hit by Truck

Florida Man Charged with Busch Gardens Flamingo Pinky's Death Is Fatally Hit by Truck

The Florida man linked to the death of the beloved Busch Gardens flamingo Pinky has died.

Joseph Corrao was crossing a busy road in Orlando, Florida and hit by a pickup truck on Wednesday, June 5, according to a report from the Tampa Bay Times. Corrao was taken to Florida Hospital East before he died at the hospital.

While an investigation into the crash is ongoing, the Tampa Bay Times reported that the driver survived the crash uninjured and was not cited for the collision.

Corrao’s death comes about two months before he was scheduled to appear in court for the death of Pinky, a 19-year-old dancing flamingo that had lived at the Florida amusement park Busch Gardens since her birth there in 1996.

Pinky served as one of the park’s animal ambassadors, and a park spokesperson said it was “a very sad and hard day for us here” at the time of Pinky’s death.

In 2016, Corrao was visiting the park with his mother and three teenage kids when he started picking up flamingos in the Jambo Junction area, according to a police report. While Corrao’s mother told him to stop, he instead grabbed Pinky’s neck and violently threw her to the ground.

The attack on the bird left Pinky with traumatic injuries she could not recover from, including nearly severing her foot, and she had to be euthanized.

The Tampa Bay Times reported that Corrao was apologetic after hearing Pinky died from his actions, and told police at the time that he was “just trying to show off to his daughter.”

Corrao was then arrested by Tampa police, and in a hearing, Judge John Conrad told him his action “actually borders on depraved.”

“Mr. Corrao, I don’t know if you have other issues. I don’t know who does that, I really don’t. I don’t relate to that on any level,” the judge said before ordering him to Hillborough County Jail to be held on a felony count of aggravated cruelty to animals.

“Pinky loved to dance for our guests,” said the park spokesperson at the time.

“Her keepers say that this is not a trained behavior, but a natural behavior she loved to show off,” the spo

The film, which is set for release in November, will star Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska as the reboot’s leading ladies.

The Charlie’s Angels collaboration is not the first time that Cyrus and Grande have teamed up before. In 2017, the “Younger Now” singer joined Grande for the Manchester benefit concert, following the bombing that occurred during Grande’s Dangerous Woman tour.

Both women have also been enjoying a surge of success as of late. Grande is currently on her Sweetener Worldwide Tour, which runs until December and consists of her hit albums Sweetener and Thank u, Next, the latter of which debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200.

Deaf Toddler Hears Her Mom Say ‘I Love You’ for the First Time After Getting Cochlear Implants

Deaf Toddler Hears Her Mom Say ‘I Love You’ for the First Time After Getting Cochlear Implants

A one-year-old girl just heard her mom say “I love you” for the first time.

A’deja Rivers has been deaf since birth and so has lived in a silent world without hearing her mom’s voice but all that changed June 20 when the tiny tot’s cochlear implants were activated.

The wonderful moment was caught on tape and A’deja’s whole family was there to celebrate the big moment.

In the heartwarming footage, the 1-year-old sits on her mom Patricia Shaw’s lap as she plays with some musical toys, before she hears her mom’s special words.

“Hi, I love you baby, I love you so much,” Shaw tells her daughter, whose eyes seem to widen while her mother speaks.

A’deja’s grandmother is featured in the clip as well, saying, “Granny loves you. First time you can hear Granny say, ‘I love you,'” as she plants a big kiss on her granddaughter’s face.

“A’deja had a great reaction,” audiologist Shelly Ash, who is also the cochlear implant team coordinator at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida, told Good Morning America Wednesday.

“She took it all in. It was a really neat moment when we could see her awareness on her face, her eyes lighting up,” Ash told the outlet.

Shaw expressed gratefulness for A’deja’s implants, calling the experience a “complete blessing.”

“All the love that I know she feels, for her to hear it, I know we all felt like, thank God, she’s able to hear us,” the Arcadia, Florida, resident told GMA.

“It was always like, ‘OK, the day is coming up and how is it going to feel?’ And it felt amazing,” she added. “To know that she heard me say, ‘I love you,’ and she might have saw my mouth moving, but the first time she heard me say it, and her eyes lit up, it was a complete blessing.”

A’deja has been “curious” and “adventurous” since getting her implants, her mom told the outlet.

“She wants to be a part of everything,” Shaw said — adding that little A’deja has discovered a love for music and dancing.
