Eatable News: Caitlyn Jenner in Rice Krispies, Amy's drive-thru and more

Jun 5, 2015 at 10:30 a.m. ET

Not only is there plenty of fun food news to talk about today, but it's also National Doughnut Day. Have you gotten your free doughnut? Settle in with your favorite breakfast treat (free is always my favorite) and a cup of coffee to catch up on this week's most eatable stories.

And don't forget to see what you missed last week. Have you downloaded your Cronut emoji yet?

1. Amy's Kitchen drive-thru

Yes, that Amy's Kitchen. Healthier convenience food just got more convenient... you don't even need to preheat the oven. Lucky residents of Rohnert Park in Northern California will soon be able to satisfy their Amy's cravings at the drive-thru. Opening in late June, they'll serve their typically frozen classics made fresh. Look for mac and cheese, gluten-free pizza, vegetarian burgers and more. If all goes well, hopefully we'll see healthy fast-food options popping up.

2. The toaster knife

You probably never thought you needed a knife so hot that it would toast bread as it cut, did you? Well, you probably don't, but it's still pretty darn cool.

3. New Oreo flavor?

Could brownie batter be the next new Oreo flavor? I certainly hope so. These lovely cookies were spotted at the recent Sweet & Snacks Expo in Chicago, but there has been no confirmation from the company. In the meantime, may I suggest a hack? Make brownies, do not bake, dip Oreos. You've got brownie batter Oreos, folks.

4. Dunkin' Donuts cookie-flavored coffee

Sometimes when I'm eating a doughnut, I think to myself, "Man, I could really go for a cookie right now." Problem solved with Dunkin' Donuts' new Oreo and Chips Ahoy! iced coffees and Coolattas.

5. Caitlyn Jenner in Rice Krispies

Jessica Siskin, the genius behind all the amazing creations at @mister_krisp, found a way to pay tribute to Caitlyn Jenner in her own way. With Rice Krispies, of course. Her version of the Vanity Fair cover is too awesome to eat.

6. Food mashup of the week

Anytime there's a mashup of cookies and booze, you know that's going to be my pick of the week. These cookie shots filled with Kahlúa are a no-brainer.

7. Drool-worthy recipe of the week

Are you kidding me with these raspberry cheesecake bagels, Dessert For Two? I declare that every meal be breakfast from here on out. That's reasonable, right?
