Star-Wars-Mug-With-Sound

This mug, aside from featuring cool images of everyone’s favorite Star Wars characters, also plays a number of sounds when lifted—including the hum of a lightsaber being turned on, R2-D2 beeping away and Chewbacca roaring. Yep, I think Chewbecca roaring would get me pumped for my first cup of joe in the morning.

This cake may not look like much…oh wait, yes it does.

Cat Cakes crafted this beauty of a cake, and it’s split into two distinct layers. The cake itself is meant to represent Mos Eisley, while the top is, of course, the Millennium Falcon (Rice Krispies treats wrapped in fondant). Thanks to Cat Cakes, I’m convinced I need a Falcon cake for my birthday.

Six-year-old Na’Ama Uzan is a Toronto local on a mission: for a year and a half, she’s been running a lemonade stand with the hopes of raising funds to help find a cure for Angelman Syndrome, a rare neurological disorder that her brother suffers from.

Actors Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney, who are playing Harley Quinn and Captain Boomerang respectively in the upcoming Suicide Squad film, were on their way to the movie’s wrap party when they decided to stop by Uzan’s stand.

Courtney noted to CTV News that he was pretty inspired by Uzan’s story:

“We heard about Na’Ama’s story and what she was doing for her brother Nadav and I just think it’s so inspiring. It just shows that there’s there is no act too small when you are talking about making a difference.”

Robbie also chimed in:

“I used to do old little stands like this when I was little,” said Robbie to CTV. “I’d just spend the profits on lollies at the corner store so I’m glad she is doing something far more noble with the cause.”

CTHOOKIE-MONSTER

Hidden in the depths of the Pacific, beneath rolling waves of darkness, lies true terror. Some say that he can be summoned if you say “Chips Ahoy” three times.

I’m talking about, of course, the Cthookie Monster. If you want to keep your cookies safe, show your allegiance to the ancient but adorable monster with this t-shirt.

If the Merc with a Mouth had a thing for chocolate instead of tacos or pancakes, then he’d probably love this Marvel Deadpool Silicone Tray. You can use the tray to make chocolate or gelatin treats and ice cubes that look like Deadpool’s lovely face (try not to think about old avocados having sex).

Despite being widely panned by critics, the Attack on Titan live-action movie is making plenty of bank. The film’s cast were recently on hand at a press conference to celebrate the film’s “performance”–as well as highlight the beginning of the AoT TV series.

Satomi Ishihara, who played Hange in the film, had the honor of cutting the Titan cake—and she did like a proper Survey Corps soldier.

Starbucks recently announced on their blog that their famous Pumpkin Spice Latte will actually contain pumpkin starting this fall. More specifically, it will be made with 2% pumpkin puree and without any caramel coloring.

Previously, the PSL’s flavor was the result of an assortment of spices (like ginger, nutmeg, clove and cinnamon).

Not surprisingly, the PSL is Starbucks’ most popular seasonal drink. Since it was introduced in 2003, the company has sold more than 200 million of ’em. So why are they tinkering with the recipe now? A number of major food and beverage companies–ranging from General Mills to Panera–have recently caved to customer pressure to do away with artificial ingredients. Starbucks is simply following this trend. Will it taste the same? Will it taste better? We won’t have to wait long to find out.
