Ice Ball Flavor-It Adds a Little Something to Your Water

Ice Ball

 

Too much soda will make you diabetic. Too much booze will screw up your liver. Too much coffee with give you yellow teeth. So, really, the only drink that you should have too much of is water. So things can get bland or boring sometimes, drinking plain old H2O. But that’s where the Ice Ball Flavor-It comes along.

It’s a circular mold that you’re supposed to fill with water after popping in the fruit of your choice. Just put slices of strawberries, lemon, lime, melon, or whatever fruit you feel like “drinking,” add water, and throw the entire thing into the freezer. Pop it out the next day and drop it into a pitcher of water to enjoy a cool and refreshing fruity treat.

The Ice Ball Flavor-It is priced at $18.

Jones Soda Releases Poutine Flavored Soda

Poutine-Drink

Poutine is a French Canadian delicacy that involves topping fries with cheese curds and scaldingly hot gravy. The gravy then melts the cheese and creates a dish that’s as delicious as it appears to be artery-clogging. It’s an acquired taste for some, but being (somewhat) French Canadian myself, I can assure you it’s excellent. Now, Jones Soda has released a Poutine flavored soda, which it describes as “a nice balance of rich, savory gravy over a starchy potato base, and accented with those fatty, cheesy notes you expect in a plate of poutine.” They had us at Poutine, and we’re happy to see that it’ll be available in select regions of Canada, including of course Quebec.

Jones Soda makes other “special” flavours, such as Turkey and gravy, for Thanksgiving.

Drinks in Disguise: iFlask is a Flask That Looks Like an iPhone

iPhone Flask

Clearly, there are a lot of liquids you can pour into these iFlasks that shouldn’t be consumed while you’re at work or attending some show or event where those said drinks are prohibited. Those types of liquids aren’t the ones we’re encouraging you to fill these iFlasks with, obviously, because that’s just one classic example of a supposedly neat gizmo used in a totally wrong way.

It’s pretty clear what the iFlask is, based on its name alone. In case you haven’t figured it out, it’s a flask that’s shaped and designed to look like an iPhone. It can hold up to 5 ounces of your beverage of choice discreetly. In fact, most people wouldn’t be any wiser unless they happen to grab hold of your “phone” and notice something sloshing inside of it.

+4.5 Paper Cup is a Cup and Stirrer in One

Paper Cup with Stirrer

While there are an assortment of portable canteens and cups available that let you have a drink or sip your Joe on the go, none can provide you with the dual functionality of the +4.5 Paper Cup. At first glance, it looks just like a typical paper cup with a handle attached to it. But look closer and you’ll see that there’s more to that handle than meets the eye.

Aside from functioning as a handle, it also has a stiff tearable portion that functions as a stirrer. This way, you’ll be able to prepare drinks with the added convenience of having almost everything you need in one paper cup.

Pepsi Special Blocks Fat While Letting You Chug Down Sweet Calories

Pepsi Special

One of the hardest parts of being on a diet is having to wean yourself off of soda for the time-being. It’s especially hard if you chug a can or two with every meal and feel like your food just doesn’t sit right anymore if you go without it.

Fortunately (at least, for weight-watchers in Japan), there’s a new variant of Pepsi called ‘Pepsi Special’ that promises to block fat, even while you’re chugging down sweet calories with every gulp. Pepsi explains that the Special variant contains dextrin, which is a water-soluble fiber supplement that makes you feel full and absorb less fat from the food that you’re eating, kind of like some of the diet drinks that are currently in the market today.

Pepsi doesn’t offer any information about the amount of sugar in the drink, but it seems like a really roundabout way of trying to lose weight. But hey, if you’re anything like the dieters I mentioned earlier, then maybe this drink’s for you. It will only be available in Japan though, for $2 a pop starting on November 13th.

Prescription Shot Glasses

People drink for many reasons. But if your reason is to drown your sorrows, then we suggest trying to cheer yourself up using other means, lest you end up addicted and nobody wants that. Drinking should be fun and it should be done when you’re feeling festive. You don’t need to get drunk, but with great company and loads of laughter, you can be sure that you’ll have yourself a good time.

Take things up a notch by downing your shots in these quirky Rx Shot Glasses. They look like bottles for pills that you’d need a prescription for, so nobody would expect (or understand) why everyone on your table is throwing them down like there’s no tomorrow.

A set of four shot glasses is priced at $19.99.

Inebriator is a Robotic Bartender that Mixes Drinks on Command

Inebriator

Some robots were meant to scare people while others were created to provide people with companionship (but really, when will people learn that live pets just can’t be replaced with robotic ones?) And then there’s the awesome and amazing robot that has been programmed to mix drinks and cocktails on command to serve thirsty crowds at the party.

It’s called the Inebriator and it’s a cocktail-mixing machine that uses an Arduino microcontroller to do the deed. It’s pre-programmed with 15 drink recipes so you and your guests are bound to find something you’d like on the menu. It’s not for sale though, so if you want it, you’re going to have to build your own.

Check out a clip of the Inebriator in action after the jump.
