Cool gummies this time I promise

September 7, 2008 at 3:48 pm (Food, Random) (, , , , , , , )

I found something to take your mind off of the horrible gummies I posted the other day. They’re called Big Bite Gummy Bears. I would post a picture of these big bears but they won’t let me have them 😦 .[Edit: I found a size comparison here and they are really big!.] Anyway they cost $15.83 for a package of 6. It’s pretty pricey considering they are just gummy bears. I would imagine that it would take you awhile to just get through one though so maybe they’re worth it. The available flavors are Cherry, Blue Raspberry, Grape, Green Apple, and Orange.

I also found some other cool gummy things starting with chocolate covered gummy bears. *drool* At $7.98/lb they’re also pretty pricey but I bet they are good. It’s also really cool because they don’t just look like blobs, you can really distinguish the bearness 😀 .

Now an amazing video about making a gummy bear spontaneously combust!

Hannah Montana really likes gummies

September 4, 2008 at 11:33 am (Food, Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Ok I hate Hannah Montana so the only reason I’m writing about this is because it’s really funny and kinda makes her look like a whore (not that she didn’t already with that awful wig full of unnatural highlights.) Ok so these are supposed to be guitar shapes but everyone is thinking otherwise. I can only imagine what the microphones must look like. Most of the stories I’ve seen have been saying “look how scandalous her mouth looks.” Uhm, has anyone seen what she looks like all the time? Just like that!

Atleast these aren’t a fleshy color. What will Disney do wrong next? lol.

On a completely unrelated note, look at how cool these new duct tape bandaids are! I think they would hurt to pull off though 😦 .

Fruit Salted Plum Suckers

August 11, 2008 at 12:55 pm (Food, Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

Looking at Thinkgeek today I saw that they had a new product out called Miracle Berry Fruit Tablets. If you eat one of these they’re supposed to make sour things taste sweet. Personally I dunno if I’d want to trip out my taste buds like that. Also, they’re not supposed to have any “harmful” side effects. It’s recommended to dissolve half of a tablet on your tongue but if you suck on the whole tablet the sour-sweet change is stronger. They’re pretty expensive since they cost $19.99. It’s candy people!

After seeing these candies I decided to look up weird foods and found a few worth sharing. First, Seagull wine, take a guess what it is. “Put a seagull in a bottle. Fill with water. Let it ferment in the sun.” – Weird-Food.com. Baby Mouse wine is similar. “Basically a rice wine bottle full of baby mice,” – Weird-Food.com. Except it’s supposed to taste like gasoline. Just what I want to drink gasoline yum.

Scotland has a drink called Irn Bru which I’ve actually tasted. It tastes exactly like pink bubblegum despite it’s bright orange color. Apparently there’s an indoor fair dedicated to it as well. It looks like fun actually.
Edit: [Irn Bru is sold in the US but I think it’s in limited locations. Also if word got out that it’s made from 32 fruit flavors I think Dr. Pepper would be in trouble with it’s 23.]

In my hunt I found more interesting suckers. They’re called Fruit Salted Plum Suckers. They’re coated with a brine salt layer on the outside with a salted chunk of plum (a.k.a. Sabroso) on the inside. I’ve read that the plum is only in the large plum suckers whereas the smaller ones have the plum plastered to the backside. Either way it sounds absolutely disgusting to me :).

I’d much rather have one of these strawberry flamingo suckers :D.
[Edit: Recently these flamingo suckers have been removed from the site 😦 .]

I want some Reeses Bats

August 1, 2008 at 10:57 am (Food, Movie, Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

Currently there’s a big Batman the Dark Knight campaign going on with Reeses. I have finally confirmed that they do in fact sell bat-shaped Reeses cups (Thanks to one of my fave blogs) but I still haven’t gotten any yet. I’m going to the store today just to look for them.

There’s a customized Batman MV Agusta F4 being given away as the grand prize. It looks pretty awesome. There’s a gallery on the Reeses site of the Agusta in production. There are 5 Panasonic home theater systems being given away for the first place prize and 10 limited edition Joker henchman masks for the second place prize. Kitkats are eligible for the giveaway as well but I don’t think they have anything bat-shaped.
