Bake, Eat, Repeat: Bakeable Kit Kats

Baked Kit Kat

 

Have a break, have a Kit Kat! But if your break is longer than the average, then why settle for a regular Kit Kat when you can have a baked one? This latest offering is only available at Japan’s Kit Kat Chocolaterie and is dubbed as “Delicious When Baked Pudding Flavored Kit Kats.” They’re essentially mini-sized, pudding-flavored Kit Kats that you’re supposed to pop into the oven before eating.

When heated in a toaster, the sugar content in the chocolate hardens into a solid candy-like state faster than the chocolate on the surface melts, resulting in a chocolate and wafer biscuit combination with a texture resembling a cookie and a sweet caramelized smell.

Tickle Generates Fake Phone Calls to Get You Out of Awkward Situations

)

What do you do when you find yourself in an awkward situation? Some people overcompensate by talking a mile a minute, while others fiddle with their phones or even fake making a call, just so they can excuse themselves. If you’ve ever tried going the latter route, then you know just how hard it can be sometimes to keep a straight face while having a fake conversation with no one.

Cue Tickle, a service that generates fake phone calls so you won’t have to pretend anymore. Developed by Alex Cornell and Phil Mills, the app “calls” you when you find yourself in a sticky situation or when you want to leave a potentially awkward or embarrassing scenario. All you have to do is move the phone in a jerky or “awkward manner” (check out the video after the break to see what the developers mean by this) and the app will get to work.

Songtapper: Find the Name of That Song By Tapping

Songtapper

 

So you just heard the most awesome song, but weren’t able to fire up SoundHound in time to capture enough snippets of it to search for its title. You could always look up the lyrics, but Google won’t be able to help you out if you can’t remember enough relevant lines.

Your last hope–and best bet, at this point–is SongTapper. It’s basically a search engine that searches for songs based on its beats. If you can hum along to the tune or remember the intro or sound of its chorus, then you can just tap out the rhythm by tapping on your space bar and SongTapper will do the rest for you.

It’s not the most accurate thing in the world, but the results might just amaze you. Check it out HERE.

Chicken Soup for the Soul Finally Gives You More Than Just Stories

Chicken Soup for the Soul

 

For decades, the Chicken Soup for the Soul series have touched people’s hearts and warmed their insides the way hot chicken soup can. What started out as a single title expanded to include dozens of books, each containing anecdotes and stories with a hidden lesson or two.

Its creators must’ve decided that touching lives with the written word wasn’t enough, because they now want to warm people up and feed their souls and stomach with actual chicken soup. The Chicken Soup for the Soul brand of Chicken Noodle Soup is apparently “inspired by your stories about food and feelings.” I’m not sure how you can add “feelings” to ready-to-serve soup, but I suppose that’s marketing for you.

Aside from instant soup, the brand will also be stamping their brand on broths, gravy, sauces, soup toppers, and even pet food. It doesn’t come as a surprise, considering there are numerous volumes under their Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul series.

Hanaga Tap Nose Outlets: Pick for Power

Nose Electrical Plugs

 

Snot and boogers aren’t the only things that you can expect to come out of a nose. Not that the Hanaga Tap Nose Outlets are real noses you can find on humans, although they look like the real thing. Available in black, white, and pink, the Nose outlets basically just plug into your outlet and provide you with another outlet for the actual appliance or gadget that you want to power up.

In short, it’s pretty much useless, but it’s undeniably a whole lot of fun. It’s available from the Japan Trend Shop for $35.

Rainmaker Turns Old Soda Bottles Into Watering Cans–Er, Bottles

Rainmaker

 

House plants need constant watering and it’s always better to spread the water out evenly rather than just pouring it on. If you don’t have a watering can and just fill old water bottles up to water your plants, then the Rainmaker is something you need to get. It’s an attachment for plastic bottles that basically transforms it into a watering can of sorts so you can make it rain for your plants with a quick squeeze of the bottle.

The Rainmaker is compatible with most water or soda bottles, although it works best with 1 to 2-liter cola bottles. They’re available online for $11.99.

Chasing After Daleks: Doctor Who Invades Pacman

Doctor Who Pacman Game

The Doctor isn’t one to run from a fight, but he’s smart, so he’ll run if he has to. Like in the Doctor PacMan game, for example. It’s essentially PacMan injected with Whovian elements, where the usual yellow dot-chomping dude is transformed into Doctor Who with the addition of a messy mop of hair and a pixelated bow tie.

Instead of the usual ghosts, ghastly Daleks (that’s Caan, Thay, Jast, and Seec, if you’re curious) are chasing Doctor PacMan through the labyrinth, where the occasional sonic screwdriver will turn the tables and have the Doctor chasing after them instead.

The game was made by Ruben P. Vargas from Rarity Workshop and you can play it HERE.
