Temperature based color-changing drinkware is one of those things that’s always fun. Add a geeky element to it and give people options for hot or cold drinks, and you have these new Power Up color changing exclusive mugs and pint glasses from ThinkGeek.
For you coffee drinkers, there’s the 8-Bit Legendary Hero Heat-Change Mug which loses power as your heated drink cools down or empties. If you drink coffee or tea, you’ll have a perfect visual representation of just how much energy you have or need.
In the case of the Power-Up Heart Pint Glass 4-Pack, it’s all about keeping your cool. Whether your drink is alcoholic or not, a cooler drink is more refreshing and deep red hearts are what you look for.
Both are in stock now. Check out the pint glasses after the break.
I’m pretty sure that many of you had to basically survive off of instant ramen at some point in your life, and I’m sure we can all agree that it can get a little boring.
However, it turns out there are lots of different things you can do with ramen and some of them are pretty clever. I mean, did you know that you could make ramen gnocchi? If not, you’ll want to check the Buzzfeed video out after the break as it highlights 11 ramen hacks that you can try at home.
One thing did puzzle me. Why is the guy in the video so bad at emptying the egg into the glass? Sheesh. Slow down a little.
This is not a drill. Repeat. This is not a drill.

Caffeine deprived people of the word, our long national nightmare is over! After being ripped away from our grasping fingers in 2003, Surge has been resurrected, if only for a limited time.
Coca Cola decided to do a limited release of Surge in response to fan requests and the desperate cries of a Facebook group with over 128k members called SURGE Movement.
The liquid, citrusy gold went up on Amazon today in a 12 count of 16 fluid ounce cans and promptly sold out in about an hour, so now the big question will be whether or not Coca-Cola is going to restock or if we’ll be seeing cans of Surge all over eBay being sold like legal nerd crack.
President of sparkling and strategic marketing for Coca-Cola North America Wendy Clark said before today’s release, “Future plans for the brand will depend on the level of excitement exhibited by fans across the country.”
I think you have your answer, Wendy. The Surge must flow.
If you are one of the hopeful, you can get on the waiting list and be notified if they restock. We wish you the best of luck in your quest.
There’s a little coffee stand in a Japan shipping harbor that serves the best tasting bugs around. Why’s that? Because Akai Tento no Koohii Ten (The Red Tent Coffee Shop) is famous for making bugs that are actually gummy candy.
Gummy on the outside, blueberry jam guts on the inside, these insect larvae come in a variety of species and sizes for ever palate.
Plus, when you squeeze them, goo comes out. Yummy!

There are times that food at the L.A. County Fair gets a little crazy, but these new Funnel Cake Cupcakes by My Delight Cupcakery look like a little piece of heaven.
If funnel cake isn’t your thing, they’re serving up all kinds of goodies through the end of the month at the Fair (You can check out the PDF menu here). I’m thinking I may have to drop by for a Jack and Cherry Coke cupcake. That sounds amazing.
Before you get in your car to head down there, I reported incorrectly that My Delight would be at the L.A. County Fair. The”Fair-inspired” menu is currently available at their regular locations during normal business hours.
