The Hottest Cold One: Sriracha Hot Sauce Flavored Beer

Sriracha Hot Sauce Flavored Beer A beer that’s hot and cold at the same time? Well, that’s got to be Rogue Brewery’s Sriracha Stout. Hot on the heels of bacon, it seems like people are adding Sriracha to all sorts of stuff where it normally shouldn’t be– Sriracha cookies, Sriracha salt, and Sriracha chocolate, for instance. And now, there’s Sriracha beer.

ROGUE Sriracha Hot Stout Beer, made from Huy Fong original hot chili sauce and sun ripened Rogue Farms ingredients, is ready to drink with soups, sauces, pasta, pizza, hot dogs, hamburgers, chow mein, or anything you’d like to wash down with a spicy kick.

You should probably go for something else if you want to sit back and relax while sipping your booze instead of running around the house, looking for some milk to neutralize the spiciness.

A bottle of Rogue Sriracha beer costs $13.

This Useless Box is Utterly Useless

Useless Box

What’s in a name? Well, in the case of the Useless Box, everything, because its name basically gives it away. This fancy-looking box with the regal feel is nothing more than junk, given the fact that it’s useless. It makes the perfect gift for your sworn enemy and for people you feel like pranking this season because despite appearances, the box exists to disappoint.

The moment you flick that switch to turn the box on, it automatically turns itself off, no matter how many times you try.

Captain Jules’s Useless Box is a very simple device. Inside the wooden box (with real metal accents) resides a bunch of gears and the latest in electricity-powered motors. Turn the switch on, and a bit of machinery will poke out and flip the switch off. That’s all the Captain Jules’s Useless Box does. But it’s enough of an oddity to make it right at home on your desk or bookshelf.

Would you shell out $40 for something so useless? ThinkGeek seems to think so.

Realistic-Looking Fake Food Jewelry Looks Good Enough to Eat

Fake Food Jewelry

Look away if you’re on a diet and want to still be on one at the end of the day. Because while we’re talking fashion accessories, they might as well be food because of how close to the real thing they actually look. This line of jewelry was created by Hatanaka, a Japanese manufacturer that specializes in making uber-realistic plastic food replicas for restaurants.

Now they’re expanding their line of business to the fashion industry with their bacon belts, soba necklaces, spaghetti hairpieces, and pasta earrings.

HashKey Is A 1-key Keyboard For The Hashtag

hashkey-1-key-keyboard-by-ben-gomori

Let it be a commentary on our lives today that someone somewhere thought it a good idea to create a one-key keyboard dedicated to the mighty hashtag. The HashKey for the social media junkies out there who spend their days tagging their posts with endless keywords in the hopes that they’ll get picked up in searches, and people will “like” the posts, and they’ll finally be able to convince themselves that it’s not really the posts all these strangers like, but actually them… Or something. The point is you’re looking at a USB-conencted gadget whose only purpose is to generate the ASCII character “#” on your screen. Yes, it’s an actual product but no, you can’t just outright buy it. You’ll have to pledge £18, or roughly $28, to get yours by March 2015. However, the campaign is far from fully funded, and no one is really surprised.

Bubble Wrap Suit: An Outfit That Pops!

Look popping, not smashing, when you don the Bubble Wrap suit over whatever it is you’re currently wearing.

The blazer comes with a hood and Velcro closure, while the pants have an elastic waistband to so you’re snug and comfy.

Or, well, as snug and comfy as you’ll ever be in a bubble wrap suit.

Doritos-Flavored Mountain Dew Being Tested

dewitos-1

Frito-Lay and Pepsi Co. sure week to have been smoking up the good stuff lately. As part of a test at Kent State University in Ohio, college students have been offered the “opportunity” to try different flavours of Mountain Dew being cooked up. One of these was an ungodly mix of Doritos and Dew, cleverly called Dewitos. Yes, the drink is supposed to taste like a swig of Dew after a bite of Doritos. According to Reddit user ‘joes_nipples’ on Reddit, “It tasted like orange with a doritos aftertaste. It tasted like straight doritos afterwards though. Weirdest thing I’ve ever drunk.”

Other flavours on trial were Lemon Ginger and Mango Habanero, but we’re particularly intrigued by the Dewitos. Heck, we’d be down to trying some, if anyone wants to ship a few bottles to OhGizmo! HQ.
