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.

KFC UK To Offer Coffee In An Edible Cup

kfc-scoffee-cup-2

It seems KFC will be offering Seattle’s Best Coffee branded brew in a special drinking vessel soon: edible cups. That’s right, after you’re done sipping on your cup o’ Joe, you can just eat the container it came in. KFC did this by partnering up with

food scientists at The Robin Collective to create the ice cream cone-inspired vessel, dubbed “Scoff-ee Cup”, which is made from a biscuit wrapped in sugar paper and lined with a layer of white chocolate. Over time, the cup will soften to the point where it melts in your mouth.

The cups will also be enhanced with questionable “mood improving aromas”, such as “coconut sun cream”, “freshly cut grass” and “wild flowers” which are intended to “evoke the positive memories we associate with warm weather, sunshine and summer holidays.”

We don’t know for how long the cups are able to keep the liquid in without leaking, but for those of you who like to sip on cold coffee throughout the day (like me), this might be a risky proposition.

The cups are being introduced to mark the launch of KFC’s Seattle’s Best Coffee across its UK branches. They aren’t ready yet, so don’t go running to your local branch just yet; the hope is that they will be by summer.

Time Locking Kitchen Container Helps You With The Cravings

time-locking-container-640x533

If you’ve gone all Cookie Monster and are looking for a way to control the cravings, while still being able to indulge once in a while, you might want to consider the ‘Kitchen Safe: Time Locking Container’. It’s a plastic container that locks up once you’ve filled it with your favourite snacks. Simply put the food in, set the timer from 1 minute to 10 days, and lock it. It won’t open until the timer runs out, and there are no overrides! The only way you’ll get to your M&Ms is by either braking the 3X-thicker-than-a-typical-container plastic walls, or going out to buy more.

This will help you with your diet, considering you’ll be able to set a reasonable timeframe when you’re full and won’t be able to change your mind once you start getting hungry again; this is, as many of you know, the typical scenario that anyone with weight control issues faces daily. The Kitchen Safe has tons of 5-star reviews and works perfectly. The batteries last between 6 to 12 months, and it stores 3.5 quarts or about 25 ounces of stuff.

Food Spit Scanner Device: Because Someone Might’ve Spit In Your Food

Food Spit Scanner Device

 

So your temper got the best of you and you exchanged a few choice words with your waiter for spilling that soda all over you and your date. Now your burger tastes kind of funky and it looks strangely slimy..

If you have reason to suspect that someone spit in your food, then you might want to check out the Saliva Scanner. It’s a handy device that scans your grub for traces of saliva. The device is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, although the creators have left out most details on the tech and science behind the scanner. That might explain why it only has $200 in pledges with only seven days to go in the campaign.

Nonetheless, the concept is interesting and it definitely settles one first-world problem once and for all– that is, if it ever gets made.

Popcorn Monsoon Puts The Fun In Pop… corn

popconr-monsoon

Yeah, that’s a sad headline, but there you have it. The Popcorn Monsoon is a little appliance for making popcorn, well, more fun. At least the popping part of it, since eating it is always kind of cool. The conceptual device uses hot air to get the kernels popped, which is healthier than oil. And then the popped corn gets pushed up this bent plastic tube and falls into an awaiting bowl. Kids can watch as the snack gets made, and they may look forward to eating it despite it being bland as heck.

Yes, this particular product has existed for ages, only this one has a longer neck and bright colors. But that’s just it, isn’t it? It’s amazing what a little design change can do to brighten up an otherwise bland and unassuming appliance. Sadly, it’s not a real product, though we suspect it would do well in the marketplace if anyone took the time to manufacture it.

Hershey-Backed 3D Chocolate Printer In The Works

Cocojet-Chocolate-3D-Printer-964x644

3D printers have become the new must-have technology, at least if we go by how many exhibits showcased a 3D printer at CES 2015. But while most of them are busy printing plastic objects, 3D Systems and The Hershey Company have been collaborating on the CocoJet, a 3D printer that uses melted chocolate as its building material. Users can pick between dark, milk, or white chocolate and can print preprogrammed shapes or make new ones. And then eat them!

The printer isn’t currently available, but 3D System’s ChefJet printer is set to be released in the second half of 2015. That particular machine spits out three-dimensional sugar, chocolate, or candy confections, so it stands to reason that CocoJet could follow a similar path to market.
