It’s a good feeling when the year is 2022 and The Garbage Pail Kids are still going strong 37 years after their grossed-out introduction to the world via the mega card distributer, Topps in 1985.
Announced by famed GPK artist Joe Simko on his personal Instagram and the details reveal over on Bloody Disgusting, the official Garbage Pail Kids Cookbook is set to be released in the Fall of 2022 with over 35 disgustingly delightful recipes concocted by “Chopped” champion Elisabeth Weinberg and husband Matt Stine- you know the son of Goosebumps God, R.L. Stine, who will also have an introduction piece included in the book!
Something about the Goosebumps legacy and Garbage Pail Kids teaming up together just sounds so right.
Fully illustrated by forementioned legendary artist Joe Simko, the book promises to deliver on the faithful nostalgic look of the GPK style while looking gross, the recipes will be anything but and I have no doubts on this with Food Network champion Weinburg dishing out the goods. So, I highly doubt you’ll end up like Valerie Vomit over here.
The official Garbage Pail Kids Cookbook is set to be released on September 27th, 2022. You can pre-order your copy here at Amazon or on Google Play!
