d20-pan

You like Dungeons and Dragons. You also like cakes. Wouldn’t you just love it if you could combine the two? With the D20 Critical Hit Mini Cake Pan, you can do exactly that. It’s a silicone mold that makes makes 20-sided die, 4 at a time, each 3 inches across. It’ll work with any recipe, but anything with yeast will likely get better results because it’ll fill out the mold cavities. Once the cakes are out of the mold, just put some fondant on them and you’re good to go! It’s $13.

Disney Theme Parks Are Serving Mac n’ Cheese Cones

mac-n-cheese-bread-cones

We are feeling our arteries clog as we write this post, not because we had any of these delicious looking concoctions, but just because we’re looking at them. Yes, that’s a gigantic bread cone containing macaroni and cheese. And while the cones themselves are not new (they might’ve been around since 2012), the fact that they’re at Disney is. To be precise, this particular cone was sold at the concession stand at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Fantasmic!. Wendy from the DisneyFoodBlog took the picture, and she chose to have her cone with bacon sprinkled on top. Good for you, Wendy! They’re about $10 each, and come in Mac n’ Cheese and Chilli Cheese variations. Each one is served with Lays, and probably 5 times your recommended daily intake of carbs and fats. Enjoy!

When A 6-Pack Of Beer Isn’t Enough, There’s A 99-Pack

99-pack-of-beer

We’re not sure why you wouldn’t just buy a darn keg of beer, but if you absolutely must get your malted beverages in a cardboard box, you should know that an Austin brewery has you covered. Austin Beerworks is selling a 99-pack of beer called the Peacemaker, and it’s going for $99. Our math skills put that at $1 a beer, which isn’t too shabby a price. The monstrosity weighs 82 lbs., is 7 feet long and presents logistical nightmares that are of little significance to people who are just looking to get hammered, we suppose. It won’t fit in your fridge for instance. And you won’t be able to carry it alone, for another instance. But hey, it’s a 99-pack of beer, and how often do you come across that? Check out their website, instagram and other social media to find out how to get your own.

Bistro Smart Feeder Uses ‘Cat Facial Recognition Technology’

Screen Shot 2014-08-27 at 3.29.14 PM

Being a busy professional sometimes makes it hard to keep pets, since you’re not often at home monitoring their eating habits and making sure they’re getting enough of what they need. But with the freedom now afforded from crowdfunding campaigns, products like the Bistro Smart Feeder are popping up, which could drastically change the way you take care of your cats. The automatic feeder features so much tech, it’s hard to know where to start. First off, a camera will analyze your cat’s face as he approaches the machine, so that it knows which one is feeding at any given time (assuming you have more than one). This allows the device to track specific metrics for each animal: its weight (through an integrated scale on the front), how often it eats, and how much. If the device notices any significant deviation from normal, you’ll be immediately notified.

Aside from tracking metrics, the Bistro Feeder can attempt to perform some smart portion control, in the case that one cat has a tendency to steal food from the other. It does this by limiting the amount of food left in the tray after a feeding, based on what its learned from each cat’s habits.

Given the campaign’s popularity, most early-bird slots have been sold out. But you can still get one for $219, and it’ll come with a “cozy Bistro cat tent”.

Arby’s Has An Off-The-Menu ‘Meat Mountain’ Option

Meat-Mountain

A while ago, Arby’s got tired of people thinking they only serve roast beef. To fight that perception, they created the poster pictured below; it’s a gigantic creation featuring a sample of every type of meat served at the restaurants. It was only meant to be illustrative, but then of course customers started asking for the very sandwich on the picture. Can you blame them? Arby’s, loathe to turn down anyone’s money, accepted the challenge and started serving the ‘Meat Mountain’ to customers who’d specifically request it. It’s a $10 sandwich, and it’s not on the menu, but they’ll sell you one if you ask for it. And here’s what’s in it:

2 chicken tenders
1.5 oz. of roast turkey
1.5 oz. of ham
1 slice of Swiss cheese
1.5 oz. of corned beef
1.5 oz. brisket
1.5 oz. of Angus steak
1 slice of cheddar cheese
1.5 oz. roast beef
3 half-strips of bacon

Spreadthat Butter Knife Uses Body Heat to Spread That Butter

Spreadthat Butter Knife

Butter isn’t the easiest thing to spread on a bagel if you just grabbed the tub from the fridge. The good news, butter lovers, is that it now gets easier with the Spreadthat Butter knife. It’s a futuristic-looking butter knife that’s coated in titanium. Aside from making the knife look cooler than the average, it also serves the purpose of conducting and transfering heat from your hand onto the blade. That way, the butter, jam, chocolate, or whatever it is you want to spread melts and in turn, becomes easier to spread.

The Spreadthat Butter Knife is available for $20.
