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
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. This $50 cutting board the perfect addition to any Star Wars geek’s kitchen, and would look awesome alongside your X-Wing Fighter knife set and R2-D2 measuring cups.

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.

First There Was TriceraTACO… Then There Was NACHOsaurus

First There Was TriceraTACO… Then There Was NACHOsaurus
A while back, we checked out a silly triceratops that doubled as a taco holder. The same company would go on to create TACOsaurus Rex, and now we have the NACHOsaurus, a snack set inspired by the spiny-backed herbivore known as the stegosaurus. Instead of bony plates along his back, the NACHOsaurus has a spot there for you to fill with your favorite snack food.

Hey, There’s Some Corn in Your Stool

Hey, There’s Some Corn in Your Stool
Well, now that I’ve thoroughly grossed you out with that headline, let me clarify. I’m not talking about poop. No, this article is all about the OTHER kind of stool. You know, the kind they made in Blaine, Missouri in Waiting for Guffman.

This Toaster Prints Random Recipes

This Toaster Prints Random Recipes
If you have a toaster sitting on your kitchen counter, there’s about a 99.999% chance that it toasts some kind of bread. But if you’re in the other 0.001%, your toaster prints recipes for other meals which may or may not include bread.

Building Brick Waffle Maker: LEGGO My LEGO
Of the many things I’ve enjoyed in my life, LEGO bricks and belgian waffles are pretty high on the list. So I was pretty stoked when I saw this waffle maker that lets you combine these two passions of mine into one. The Building Brick Waffle Maker works just like any other waffle iron, except this one cranks out stackable blocks that you can build things with.

Skittles Giants are the Giant Skittles We Didn’t Know We Needed
If you ask me and my sweet tooth, the only thing better than candy is bigger candy. Thankfully, the sugar gods are shining down upon us with a new blessing today, in the form of Skittles Giants. The new candy is the same as regular Skittles, only three times larger!

Ready for another marathon gaming session? You might think a highly caffeinated drink like Mountain Dew or Red Bull will help you stay awake and alert, but there’s a company in Japan that thinks that’s wrong.
