Kraken’s NFT Collection Proves Everyone Wants to Release the Kraken, Not the NFTs

Choose between an NFT or a free Pre-mix pack.

The Kraken Black Spiced Rum is the latest alcohol brand to jump on board NFTs, but unlike Penfolds, Kraken isn’t taking it seriously. Instead, the brand has created a dark and satirical twist on the hype and launch of NFT collections, twisting the troped with its own collection to show where the real value lies—clue: it isn’t in over-hyped digital art.

Claiming its rightful reputation as the most disruptive force in the art world, Kraken’s NFTs are worthless. What do we mean? Well, Kraken has created a collection of NFTs that come with a choice—take the NFT, or choose The Kraken Rum, showing that the taste of their rum is more valuable than over-hyped digital art.

Each Kraken NFT is drawn from a pool of 200 precious artworks and 200 Kraken premix packs. The hero NFTs include Bored Mermaid Shipwreck Club, which grants you access to a membership so enticing that many sailors have met their end in its pursuit. The Sip of Seafearing Legend is an exclusive digital collectible bottle, and the Kraken Koin is priceless in value once minted.

For the curious and NFT fanatics, you can purchase a Kraken NFT here. For a free Kraken mix pack, click “mint now” on the NFT with two bottles and fill in your details.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
