CES 2019: Las Vegas, Nevada “” We spoke to Impossible Foods COO David Lee. We wanted to know why 2019 was the year for Impossible Foods, which has been selling products for years, to come to the world’s largest technology show.

“CES is always the place to break important, critical, disruptive technology and Impossible Foods was founded with a bold mission to help save the planet one delicious burger at a time “” to start. Today we’re serving Impossible Burger 2.0. This is an example of technology that just gets better and better. It has everything you want in a burger “” the taste, the texture, the crave-ability.

‘Game Of Thrones’: Johnnie Walker White Walker Whisky Is Coming
  |  @   |  

We’ve already seen Game of Thrones get its own line of beer made by Brewery Ommegang. Now, heading into its final season, the show is about to get another adult beverage with a little bit more of a kick.

It’s been announced that HBO, in collaboration with British alcoholic beverage company Diageo, are releasing a line of Thrones-inspired Scotch whiskies. One is a new blended Scotch from Johnnie Walker fittingly called White Walker and inspired of course by the Night King and his ever-growing army of icy undead who have been the great looming threat slowly approaching since the beginning of the series. The rest are a collection of single malt Scotch whiskies inspired by the various houses of Westeros and the Night’s Watch.

You can find all of the information, including pricing and alcohol by volume, along with images of the bottles below.

A little context: I’m a Los Angeles native, and while I often smoke my own barbecue, I’ve never had authentic Texas BBQ before. I had no idea what I was in for.
