Rotten Recipes On The Way With The Official Garbage Pail Kids Cookbook!

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!

Monster Blood is back baby and just in time because Holy Horrorland it’s HOT! Cousins Tyler and Kim Malek, founders of Salt and Straw have teamed up with Scholastic for a monster summer in a collaboration effort infusing tasty treats and, well, the holy grail of sweaty Summer days- ice cream available for a limited time at the shop!

Now through July 1st, 2021, Salt & Straw’s Rad Readers menu will be available in the company’s brick and mortar stores as well as for online order nationwide.

With the launching of R.L. Stine’s Slappyworld series and the newly released “Monster Blood Is Back” earlier this year, the delightful treats shop has concocted a blend of salted Mango ice cream with streaks of citrus-y, shiny green goo with chunks of deep red strawberry bark.

Sounds about on par with what I would expect a Goosebumps flavored ice cream to go with!

In addition to the nostalgic nature of Goosebumps, Salt and Straw has also unleashed these limited flavors in conjunction with other famed Scholastic books to their menu:

Geronimo Stilton & The Frosted Frozen Feast (Author: Geronimo Stilton)⁠⁠
Smile: Words & Pictures (Author: Raina Telgemeier)⁠⁠
Amulet: Fruit of the Gadoba Tree (Author: Kazu Kibuishi)⁠⁠
Twins: A Matching Pear w/ Twinnamon Swirl (Author: Varian Johnson & Shannon Wright)⁠⁠
