Make Your Own Popsicles at Home With The FRIOPOP Bags

friopop-giant-popsicle-making-bags-xl

Stick it to the man, and make your own damn popsicles at home. Why settle for highly sugary, artificially flavoured candy when you can cool off from the summertime heat with your own, made-at-home popsicles? The FRIOPOP bags are just, well… popsicle-shaped plastic bags that you can fill up with whatever tasty concoction you want. After a couple hours in the freezer, just unwrap and enjoy. They come in one size, 8oz., but if you want smaller ones, just, you know, fill them up less. And of course, you wouldn’t expect this stuff to be expensive, and you’d be right. It’s $7 for 100.

Darth Vader Toothpick Dispenser

BAN16831

Ok… we said we would stop talking about Star Wars stuff. We know. But how can you resist a Darth Vader toothpick dispenser? The toothpicks stealthily hide in his cape, and every time you need a new one you depress a lever at the back, his outstretched hands reaches in there and returns to the initial position with a new ‘Lightsaber’. It’s a novelty item, sure… but it’s Darth Vader handing out toothpicks, so there’s something a little amusing to see such a powerful character stuck with such a mundane task. It’s $34.95 on pre-order.

Pizza On Your Gas Stovetop? Yes, It’s Possible

Pizzeria-Pronto-Stovetop-Pizza-Oven

Getting a good pie requires a few elements, the most important of which is a really hot pizza oven. It’s not ever over that reaches the 600F that usually yield great results, but with the Pizzacraft PC0601 Pizzeria Pronto Stovetop Pizza Oven you’ll get there in 15 minutes flat… as long as you’ve got a gas stovetop. If you do, once the temp is reached, your pie will be baked in as little as 6 minutes!

Most conventional ovens can only achieve temperatures of 500 F and require up to an hour to reach those heats. The Stovetop Pizza Oven can heat up to 600 F in about 15 minutes, allowing you to cook your pizza in as little as 6 minutes. The Stovetop Pizza Oven uses one of your stovetop’s gas burners to reach cooking temperature. Simply place the oven on top of your burner and turn it on. The oven’s heat-efficient design traps and reflects heat to create the optimal pizza-cooking environment. Dual cordierite baking stones absorb the direct heat from the flame and redistribute it evenly, eliminating hot spots. The stones are separated by a layer of air to diffuse heat, and the bottom stone has a cutout for improved airflow. The built-in thermometer lets you know when it’s time to cook, and the moisture vent in the top prevents your pizza from becoming soggy. With the Pizzeria Pronto Stovetop Pizza Oven, you can get pizzeria-perfect pizza in your own home.

The device will yield 12 inch pizzas reliably, and costs a very reasonable $161.

Took Long Enough: Sriracha To-Go Packets

Sriracha-ToGo-Packets

We’re not sure why it’s taken this long, but Sriracha is finally releasing to-go packets of its famous, delicious, almost addictive sauce. Over a year ago we told you about the Sriracha2Go Keychain Bottle, and that was pretty cool. But let’s be honest, who’s going to really carry some hot sauce on their keychain? So it makes a lot more sense to get these, which come in boxes of 50 or 200, for $15 or $35 respectively.

Japanese Company Makes Sliced Chocolate

CC_bord

Your cheese (or cheese “product”) comes in convenient, individually-wrapped slices. So why not do the same with chocolate? That’s the thinking behind Japanese company Bourbon’s “Nama Chocolate”. Each slice is about 2mm thick (0.08inches) and offers “a rich, creamy confectionary that’s not as sweet as fudge, but more intense in flavor than ordinary milk chocolate”. You’re free to make pretty shapes with it, or simply slap it between two pieces of bread. It’ll save you the step of having to spread your chocolate, and gives you a bit more freedom to do stuff that you wouldn’t normally be able to do with regular hard chocolate. It’s 3,240 yen, or US$27 for bulk packs.

You Can Buy A Remote Controlled Wienermobile

RC-wienermobile-3

Some people are pretty passionate about their hotdogs. We’re fans of Oscar Mayer’s wieners as much as the next guy, we just don’t know that we’d want to buy a remote controlled Winermobile. We bet some people will, though. It’s a smaller version of the largish off-road RC toy they came out with last July, only you can actually buy this one. It’s $25 and can actually carry two hotdogs, so it’s a toy with a practical use beyond entertainment. Getting your hands on one will be hard though, since the company plans to sell them in batches, and you’ll have to follow their Twitter account to know when the next batch is up for purchase. Pretty clever, as far as a marketing ploy to get people to follow them is concerned.

Death Star Waffle Maker

star-wars-death-star-waffle-maker-1

It’s very tempting to make an article filled with Star Wars puns and references, but you’ve likely read them all and wouldn’t be able to stop rolling your eyes at one more. At least, that’s how we feel if we read something like “you won’t need the Force to eat these waffles”, or “these are the waffles you’re looking for”. It’s like every blogger on the Internets just has to tie that into his writeup somehow. So we’ll just tell you simply: you’re looking at a waffle maker that makes waffles that look like the Death Star. There. That’s all there is to it. Waffles. Death Star. $40. The end.

FoldFlat Is Like Tupperware Doing Origami

foldflat-1

Plastic containers, whether from Tupperware or any other manufacturer, are great for storing leftovers, cupcakes, or any other comestibles that you don’t want going to waste too fast. But once you’re done using them, storing the containers themselves becomes a hassle sure to waste some space in your pantry. Unless of course you get yourself a FoltFlat container. When opened up, it’s a 1.6 L (54 oz) container that’s also 65 mm (2.55 in) deep. When folder however, it slims down to a very manageable 21 mm (0.82 in) thick, or about the thickness of a paperback novel. It’ll store easily, ready to unfold whenever you need it next. It’s BPA-free, like most plastic these days, and is dishwasher and microwave safe. Getting one will cost you a $20 pledge, with shipping in April 2016.

Finally: Kellogg’s To Release Maple Bacon Pop Tarts (And Other Flavours)

pop-tarts-flavors

Everyone knows one of the most fantastic flavour combinations known to man is Maple-Bacon. If we had our way, there’d be Maple-Bacon pie, cheese, candies, edible underwear, lube… Heck, everything would be that flavour! So we’re happy that everyone’s favourite breakfast is finally being released in that particular flavour combination. As a matter of fact, Kellogg’s has announced the release of five limited edition varieties, including maple-bacon.

Maple Bacon: Mid-December 2015
-Watermelon: Mid-December 2015
-Chocolatey Caramel: Mid-December 2015
-Frosted Spring Strawberry: Early 2016
-Pink Lemonade: Mid-April 2016

Yeah, sure, the others sound decent too. But they’re a little vanilla as far as we’re concerned. We’re not sure which markets these are for, but if they don’t come to Quebec (where Yours Truly is sitting), we’ll be shocked.
