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.

Mesoloft Sends Your Ashes to Infinity and Beyond

Mesoloft  Ash

Some people choose to have their ashes scattered out into the ocean, while others prefer to stay close to their loved ones in an urn. For those who want to take things one step farther, there’s Mesoloft.

The company offers out-of-this-world services for your final departure by dropping your cremated remains 90,000 feet from the ground.

Mesoloft co-founder Chris Winfield explains: “We know that the ashes will likely travel for months and possibly years as they get carried by the currents in the upper atmosphere. The ashes will eventually descend and settle all around the globe. Moisture adheres to ashes that pass through clouds and the ash will form the nucleus of a raindrop or snowflake.”

Now isn’t tht something else? Unsurprisingly, Mesoloft’s services come at hefty prices, starting at $2,800.

Win the Sumo Wrestling Match, Get a Giant Green Macaron

Giant Green Macaron Sumo PRize

Boxers get cash, but sumo wrestlers get an even better prize (subjectively speaking, that is): a giant macaron. At least, that’s what the second placer was awarded at the recent Sumo Senshuraku tournament in Japan. The giant green dessert was prepared by renowned French pastry chef Pierre Hermé, which made sense since the match was part of the France-Japan Friendship Cup.

Now that’s delectable to ginormous proportions!

iPhone Case Puts the Feeling of Green Grass In Your Hand

Shibaful lush lawn iPhone case

Lush greens, the feeling of freshly-cut blades of grass on your feet.. what does that imagery remind you off? Whether it’s a golf course or a typical summer’s day when you get to do nothing but lie back on a hammock, it often brings back fond memories (with the exception being those who had to endlessly mow other people’s lawns, that is.)

Now you can revel in those grassy memories by getting the Shibaful lush lawn iPhone case which is exactly what its name implies it is. The case is wrapped all around in a lush field of faux grass that looks and almost feel like the real thing. It’s not the practical or most durable of cases out there, but that isn’t really the point with this case, is it?

The Shibaful phone case is available for $84.

Giant Sausage Pillow: Sweet Dreams are Made of Meat

Giant Sausage Pillow

You probably should avoid this pillow at all costs if you’re on a diet or trying to go vegan. As its name implies, the giant sausage pillow is just that: a larger-than-life pillow that looks like a delicious grilled sausage. Isn’t your mouth watering already? Put one on your couch, on your bed, or on the floor–wherever you might feel like snuggling against it, actually.

Its makers were able to make the print look so realistic by using a special sublimation technique after shaping the pillow into a giant, bent sausage.

Cuddlr

Sad? Lonely? In need of a hug? Well, Cuddlr does you one better by not only finding you someone to hug, but someone you can actually cuddle with. The concept is interesting but an app that lets you meet up with strangers so you guys can cuddle is a bit…off. Cuddle is a location-based app that keeps track of people who are looking for cuddles and their current location.

Walk into an area where there’s someone in need and you’ve got yourself a cuddle buddy. Its developers say it’s safe, secure, and private but…we’ll see about that.
