The latest Frappuccino flavor will hit Starbucks on April 28th and will only be around for a limited time. The S’mores Frappuccino will feature marshmallow-infused whipped cream, milk chocolate sauce, and a blend of graham, coffee, milk and ice. It will be topped with more of that marshmallow whipped cream and some crumbled graham crackers.

Sounds delicious!

If you would like to try one, the best time to go would be between the hours of 3 and 5pm May 1st though May 10th during their Happy Hour promotion. All Frap flavors are half off during that time.

When you think of ice cream you think Ben & Jerry’s. Now you can also think beer as they’ve partnered with New Belgium to create “Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale” with 6.3% ABV. It’s described as being packed with “chocolaty, salted-caramel, vanilla goodness”.

Sales will benefit Protect Our Winters and you can look for it to arrive sometime this fall. Fingers crossed they turn Chunky Monkey into a beer next.

This fantastic birthday spread was Magic: The Gathering-themed from start to finish. Guests came with their own decks, so it started with the suggestion that everyone dress in their favorite deck colors. Then each guest got a custom card and a glass that was also themed to their deck.

There was plenty of delicious food with names pulled right from the game. Kool-Aid became many different colors for Mana, veggies were Elven Fare, potato chips became Faerie Flakes, and chips and dip became Dragon Scales and Dragon’s Breath.

Head on over to Sugar Bean Bakers to see more clever ideas for a Magic: The Gathering party.

This TARDIS snack cabinet was built by Whovian Craftster user BadWolf314 for her husband. He wanted a soda machine, but she did one better by making a snack cabinet shaped like the TARDIS for their movie room. It does soda, but she also managed to cram a microwave in there. Whichever Doctor shows up at their door, they’ll be sure to have the appropriate treat at the ready.

Here’s what happens when science types get bored. A group of scientists from Sweden got together and launched a donut into space by attaching it to a weather balloon with a video rig. They even retrieved the donut from the ocean once it returned to Earth. Unfortunately, it paid a high price to push donutkind into the future.

You may never slay a real dragon, but you’ll have no problem decimating the dragons produced by this cake pan. The design features a dragon wrapped around three eggs and measures 10.5″ in diameter and 4″ tall. It’ll hold about 8 cups of batter, so you’ll need two boxes of standard cake mix and will have a bit left over. It’s dishwasher and oven safe.

We previously featured a life-size chocolate Benedict Cumberbatch that was made by UKTV to launch its new drama-focused station. Once they built Chocobatch, they decided to conduct a little experiment.

They called it the “Chocolate Cumberbatch Temptation Experiment” and it involved putting the masterpiece in a mall and telling people they were welcome to give it a taste. A whole bunch of people took them up on their offer, breaking off fingers and taking a few licks. He’s a chocolate statue sitting unwrapped in a mall, people. That’s just, ew.
