When is a Rubik’s Cube Not a Cube? When It’s a Fruit

When is a Rubik’s Cube Not a Cube? When It’s a Fruit
The original Rubik’s Cube is one of the most iconic and popular toys of all time. From its deceptively simple design to its frustrating complexity for noobs, to the amazing way that some people can solve them in seconds, they’re a mechanical masterpiece of puzzle goodness.

Welcome to The Cheetosphere

Welcome to The Cheetosphere
Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve had a tendency to play with my food. I remember cobbling together all kinds of gross concoctions at the table whenever we went out to eat, and occasionally stacking food items like Lincoln Logs to create edible towers.

Dress Your Wounds with Pizza

Dress Your Wounds with Pizza
Did you get a boo-boo on your finger? Don’t be normal and wrap it in an ordinary Band-Aid. Instead, be a surrealist and protect your cuts and scrapes with a slice of pizza. No silly, not actual searing hot pizza.

This Sparkling Water Tastes Like Marshmallows

This Sparkling Water Tastes Like Marshmallows
Sparkling water usually comes in zesty flavors like lemon, lime, grapefruit, or cherry. While I do love me some marshmallows, the idea of bubble water that tastes like the sugary treat seems a little odd to me.

Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head Egg Cups Are All They’re Cracked Up to Be

Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head Egg Cups Are All They’re Cracked Up to Be
Eggs. I love them scrambled, over-easy, in an omelette, on top of a burger, poached, or boiled. And potatoes aren’t too shabby either, but they’re just not as healthy for you as eggs are. Well, now you can enjoy potatoes with your eggs without the added carbs, thanks to these Mr.

Burger Socks: Hold the Pickle, Hold the Lettuce Between Your Toes

Burger Socks: Hold the Pickle, Hold the Lettuce Between Your Toes
Hungry? How about a delicious, juicy cheeseburger? That sounds yummy to me. What if I told you somebody’s stinky feet had been touching your sandwich? You’d have second thoughts about cramming it into your mouth for sure.

Don’t Try Drinking This Fake Hot Chocolate with Marshmallow Push Pins

Don’t Try Drinking This Fake Hot Chocolate with Marshmallow Push Pins
It’s like 90ºF and 80% humidity here in Chicago this week, so the idea of sipping a hot beverage doesn’t have much appeal to me at the moment. But when the weather inevitably cools off, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a nice cup of hot cocoa, along with a bunch of mini marshmallows floating on top.

Thomy Rot-Weiß Is Ketchup and Mayonnaise Packaged Like Toothpaste

Thomy Rot-Weiß Is Ketchup and Mayonnaise Packaged Like Toothpaste
Ketchup, mustard, mayo, teriyaki, bbq sauce, sriracha… Let’s face it, I’m a big condiment fan. While I don’t always mix my condiments, some combinations work better than others. Ketchup and mayo generally work well together – especially on a cheeseburger – and actually are pretty good on french fries too.

Take a Noodle Bath and Swim with Some Ramen

Take a Noodle Bath and Swim with Some Ramen
Don’t you just love ramen noodles? Well, now you can enjoy some instant ramen every time you take a bath. I’m not talking about nuking a package of Nissin or Maruchan and taking them into the tub with you (though you could do that.)

Let’s Taco ‘Bout This Goofy Pool Float

Let’s Taco ‘Bout This Goofy Pool Float
For many of us, summer means heat and sweat. And there’s no better way to cool off on a hot summer day than a plunge in the pool. But if you’re going to float around in there, you might as well look like you’re having fun.

Death Star Cheese Board: That’s No Brie!

Death Star Cheese Board: That’s No Brie!
There is nothing cheesy about the Death Star – especially if you lived on Alderaan. But that didn’t stop Disney from making a fully-operational cheese board that looks like Darth Vader’s killer spherical space station. Unlike the actual Death Star, this one is crafted from rubberwood, and holds a set of cheese utensils inside: a cleaver, planer, fork-tipped knife, a spreader (and a Stormtrooper.)

This Device Can Synthesize Any Flavor on Your Tongue: Taste the Rainbow

This Device Can Synthesize Any Flavor on Your Tongue: Taste the Rainbow
Back in the 1990s a team of engineers created a device called the iSmell. This unusual gadget used scent cartridges to simulate a wide variety of aromas, which could be triggered through computer code. The iSmell ultimately failed due to lack of market interest, but I always thought the idea that you could create anything from the smell of hot chocolate to pepperoni pizza just by mixing chemicals was pretty fascinating.

I Love Spreadsheets Mug Is for Digital Masochists

I Love Spreadsheets Mug Is for Digital Masochists
When I worked in the corporate world, I think my time was equally split between sitting in mindless, unnecessary meetings and staring at massive spreadsheets. While I consider myself to now be an expert at manipulating PivotTables and complex Excel macros, I by no means love spreadsheets.

Burger King Social Distancing Crowns: Hold the Pickle, Hold the Coronavirus

Burger King Social Distancing Crowns: Hold the Pickle, Hold the Coronavirus
When it comes to things we can do to mitigate the risks of the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing is definitely at the top of the list, right up there with wearing masks, washing your hands, and not touching your face.

Millennium Falcon Cutting Board: Punch (and Chop) It Chewie!

Millennium Falcon Cutting Board: Punch (and Chop) It Chewie!
The Millennium Falcon is best known for its ability to do the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. But did you know it’s also good for cutting parsnips? Or chopping onions? Or julienning carrots? Well, it is if you pick up this Millennium Falcon cutting board from Promi Design.

These Pepperoni Pizza Pillows Won’t Leave Cheese on Your Couch

These Pepperoni Pizza Pillows Won’t Leave Cheese on Your Couch
If there’s one food that I could eat on a whim just about any day or time, it’s pizza. My personal favorite has to be Lou Malnati’s here in Chicago, but I also love a jumbo New York style slice, an ultra-thin Italian brick oven pizza, or one of those crispy 8-corner Detroit slices from Jet’s.
