Good News, Lime Heads. Lime-flavored Skittles Is Making A Comeback!

Still feeling sour all these years since the death of the lime flavor Skittles in 2013? Well, the Mars’ brand of rainbow candies has news for you: your sour taste will not stop, but this time, you can bet your ass that the sour-ness will be that of lime. Yes. You heard it right. Skittles is resurrecting the lime flavor Skittles candy after much demand by diehard fans (really???), but apparently, only in Stateside. For the uninitiated, Skittles abruptly pull the plug on lime flavor candies after an apparent market research revealed that sour apple were in favor and since the taste is said to be almost identical to lemon, Skittles didn’t think it would have matter.

Skittles Removed The Rainbow, Goes White For Pride Month

What happens if you remove colors from something? Should colorless represented by white? This is kind of a mystery in life, but for Mars’ Skittles, they seem to think that removing the rainbow colors from the usual colorful sweets should result in white and hence the Skittles Limited Edition Fruit Sweets – in white, save for a few the alphabet ’s’, which is in black, on each ‘colorless’ candy. But why the hell would a candy company who uses colors primarily as a way to draw kids removed colors? If you don’t already know, June is Pride Month, well, at least it is in the U.S and in the U.K. And if you don’t know what Pride Month is, it is a LGBT event of sort, celebrated by the Gay community in memory of those members who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS.

Cinnamon Whisky Gummy Bears Are A Thing, But They Won’t Make You High

I know no one who have the love for both fiery whisky and gummy bears, but I should be wise enough not to assume that no one love both and also, I should not assume that whisky-loving, or gummy bears-loving folks, never wished for whisky-loaded gummy bears. If it exists, I am sure it will please whisky lovers, though probably not pure gummy bears connoisseurs. Anywho, in case you happen to love the taste of Fireball Cinnamon Whisky in chewy form, well then, Etsy store VineGelee will have you covered. The store sells the popular Fire Ball fiery beverage in candy form which it aptly calls, Fire Bear! Cinnamon Whisky Gummy Bears.

Is This $2,300 Dutch Burger Really The World’s Most Expensive?

I have a lot to say about “world records” today, triggered by a so-called “most expensive hamburger in the world” we came across a couple of days ago. As you know, this being the Internet, information sometime can be rather misleading and confusing, and the record purportedly awarded by Guinness World Records to South of Houston, a bar kitchen in The Hague, The Netherlands, is one such confusing case. We read that this gastronomical delight whipped by Chef Diego Buik of South of Houston has snagged the Guinness World Records for most expensive hamburger with a gold-foiled covered top bun burger that cost $2,300 (some ’sources’ even said it was $3,600 and so…), but based on Time’s “8 of the Most Expensive Burgers Ever,” the priciest burger was FleurBurger at Fleur in Las Vegas which commanded a whopping $5,000 (!).

Seriously, You Won’t Believe This Clear Liquid Is Actually Coffee

What defines a coffee? The color? Such as black, or in the case of coffee with milk, brown? Or would caffeine and the associated taste of ‘coffee’ enough to qualify a beverage as coffee? This topic is not even debatable. I mean, coffee is coffee, like blue or green is the color of the ocean. We all know that and so when we mention coffee, we expect visual reference like black or brown, and that pretty much all there’s to it. But this being 2017, anything is possible and so, what if I tell you that there’s such a thing as clear-like-water coffee? Would you even drink it? Continue reading Seriously, You Won’t Believe This Clear Liquid Is Actually Coffee

Starbucks Now Has Whiskey Barrel-aged Coffee Because, Why Not?

The idea of having whiskey early in the morning is not a norm for regular folks, less you are a hardcore liquor addict, but if you reside in Seattle, you may be inclined to have sip of whiskey because Starbucks has a new caffeinated beverage infused with whiskey flavor and it is only available at Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Seattle.

Burger King Valentine’s Day Adults Meal Comes With, Well, An Adult Toy

What was meant to be a celebration of love and a month of romance has evolved into an obvious consumerism that businesses are quick to cash in on. But not all businesses actively cash on Valentine’s Day. Fast food restaurants for one, remain rather nonchalant about this ‘big event’ for lovers until of late when KFC New Zealand dished out KFC bouquets, and candlelight dinner over at White Castle and Waffle House. As it turns out, those weren’t the last of it. Burger King Israel also pulled off something rather unusual for this year’s day of romance. In response to how kids have ‘Kid’s Meal’, Burger King Israel came up with a novel idea of an Adults Meal just for this day.
