Get a (Sugar) High With Every Sip: Marshmallow Peeps-Flavored Milk

Marshmallow Peeps Flavored Milk

It was bound to happen, and it finally did: Marshmallow Peeps-flavored milk. Kids will love it, while adults will either love it or hate it. One thing’s for sure: it’s guaranteed to give everyone who drinks it a sugar high, regardless of age. The limited-edition milk is being introduced by Prairie Farms and it will come in three flavors: easter egg nog, chocolate marshmallow, and regular marshmallow.

Each serving contains 37 grams of sugar. To put that into perspective, a 12-ounce can of Coca-Cola has 35 grams of sugar. To drink or not to drink? That is the question.

Get Random Video Games Every Month With My Retro Game Box

Retro Game Box

Like the idea of receiving a random retro video game cartridge every month? Then you might want to check out My Retro Game Box. It’s an unusual subscription service that’ll parse through a library of games and send you an assortment that matches your gaming preferences (and works with whatever consoles you have.)

According to MRGB:
We have developed a system with full, emotional artificial intelligence, and named it Katy.* She will strike up a conversation with you via email after you subscribe, to find out what consoles you have, what games you already have in your collection, and what kind of games you detest. We want you to help us make good choices for you, but we draw the line at giving us a wish-list, otherwise it just isn’t a surprise.

Subscriptions start at £23.00 (for a month) for PAL systems and £65.00 (for 3 months) for NTSC systems.

Instant Seating? Pop-Up Cardboard Furniture

Fold Out Cardboard Furniture

 

A real-life pop-up book? Yes, please, only this one’s got a pretty cool twist: the cardboard opens to reveal pop-up furniture. Unfortunately, you can’t sit on the chairs or use the table unless you’re as light as a feather. The concept is still pretty fun, though, and it makes you wonder: is pop-up furniture really that far off?

The cardboard furniture was designed by Liddy Scheffknecht and Armin B. Wagner.

Banana Scratch And Sniff Wallpaper

 

If you go bananas for bananas, then you might want to check out the unusual wallpaper created by Flavor Paper in collaboration with Michael Angelo of Wonderland Beauty Parlor. It features loads of bananas set on a bright background, but what sets it apart from other banana-themed wallpapers is the fact that you can scratch it to catch a whiff of–you guessed it!–bananas.

It doesn’t matter which banana you scratch, because each one of ’em will give off that scent you go ape for. The scented sheets start at $110.

Fish Tea Bags: Truly Fish Out Of Water

Fish Tea Bags

 

Gold fish swimming in the tea that you’re about to drink? Sounds pretty nasty, but these fishy tea bags will make most people wonder why you’re sipping that tea so calmly while a goldfish swims leisurely in your cup…

The company behind these creative tea bags is Taiwan-based Charm Villa. The tea bags look like typical tea bags when they’re out of the water, but submerge it in hot water and watch it transform into the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen in a cup. Beauty in tea bags? Now that’s not something you see or hear about everyday.

Game On: Air Hockey Salt & Pepper Shakers

Air Hockey Salt & Pepper Shakers

I’m sure your mom taught you not to play with your food or goof around at the dining table. But I don’t think she ever said anything about playing with condiments– specially with the salt and pepper shakers– because play is exactly what the folks behind these uber-fun S&P shakers want you to do, seeing as they’re made in the same shape and form as your typical air hockey pusher.

The added bonus? It comes with a puck so you don’t have to use biscuits or frozen slices of ham to play a round or two.

Of Swings and Booze: Bar With a Swingset for Seats Exists

Swingset Bar

 

There’s another way to get dizzy when you’re at the bar, but it doesn’t involve knocking back more shots. Rather, all you need to do is push off the ground– that is, if you happen to be seated on one of the swings that serve as seats on this unusual bar. Instead of the usual stools, it has a number of swings surrounding it. You obviously can’t push off as hard as you like because you’ll probably end up banging your knees (while damaging the bar in the process.)

It’s being sold by Duffy London and comes with a pretty hefty pricetag: $37,465.

Edible Art: Candy Craft Pen Uses Chocolate Ink

Candy Craft Pen

 

The pen you’ve dreamed of having ever since you were a kid is now a reality. Sure, a lot of folks are working on 3D chocolate printers and food printers. Most of them cost an arm and a leg, so if you’re just a typical foodie with a sweet tooth, then the Candy Craft Pen is a worthwhile alternative.

Instead of ink, the pen uses chocolate, so you can “draw” all sorts of sweet and delicious creations and eat ’em all afterwards.

This Case Turns Your iPhone 6 Into a Mini Batmobile

Case Batmobile

Your iPhone 6 is cool enough as it is. But you can make it even cooler by dressing it up in this Batmobile case by Bandai. As implied, the case looks like a miniature version of Batman’s ride. It doesn’t just protect your device from scratches and damage in case you drop it; it also comes equipped with LED lights that alert you to incoming calls or messages. It also uses your phone’s flashlight to “turn on” the Batmobile’s headlights and taillights.

A neat extra feature is the emission: just turn the switch to project Batman’s logo on the wall.
