Ally Ali’s Need To Know, Monday August 1st:
Applebee’s Wings Lip Gloss: Applebee’s is now selling its own line of lip glosses that are supposed to taste like CHICKEN WINGS.
It’s called Saucy Gloss, and there are four types: Hot Buffalo . . . Sweet Chile . . . Honey Pepper . . . and Barbecue. (Because what’s classier than make-up that tastes like bar food?)
If that’s something you’d actually WANT to wear, they partnered with a make-up brand, and they’re selling them at WinkyLux.com/SaucyGloss.
Each tube costs $18, or you can get all four for $65.
They’re using the tagline “Taste My Face.”
Snoop On The Stoop:

Fancy Feast Human Pop-Up Restaurant: The brand Fancy Feast is opening a pop-up restaurant in New York next week, where all the food is based on their CAT FOOD flavors.
It’s called Gatto Bianco, which means “White Cat” in Italian. They got a Michelin Star chef to come up with dishes for humans based on Fancy Feast recipes. But only 16 people will get to eat there over two days.
It’s really just a gimmick, and the food doesn’t actually look like cat food at all. The main courses include salmon with saffron risotto . . . baked sea bass with capers and olives . . . and braised beef with spinach and polenta.
Also, we’re pretty sure a few of the ingredients in the desserts would be TOXIC for cats: Lemon panna cotta . . . espresso ice cream . . . and chocolate-covered almond cake. (Cats can’t have lemon, coffee, or chocolate.)
Candy Taste Test for Kids: A website called Candy Funhouse sells candy online. And they’re looking to hire their first “Chief Candy Officer” with a salary of $100,000 a year.
Anyone over the age of FIVE can apply, and there’s no previous work experience necessary. You just have to love candy . . . be willing to taste-test a ton of it . . . and have no serious food allergies.
They’re based in Canada, so that’s 100 grand in Canadian dollars, or about $78,000 U.S. But they say the job can be done remotely.
The main job duties are being their “head taste-tester” and deciding which products to carry. One story we saw claimed you have to taste-test 3,500 candies a MONTH, or more than 100 a day. But whoever wrote that is wrong. That’s just the total number of products they currently sell.
If you . . . or your child . . . are interested, you have until the end of August to apply on LinkedIn. They say it comes with “an extensive dental plan.”
