Birthdays and cake go together like, well, birthdays and cake. It only made sense for Starbucks to create a birthday cake concoction to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the frappuccino. The Birthday Cake Frappuccino will be available for only five days from March 26th through March 30th.

It’s vanilla bean and hazelnut flavored with raspberry-infused whipped cream. Once it’s gone, it’s gone, so plan your afternoon coffee run accordingly.

Kirin Ichiban wanted to draw attention to their beer brand so, naturally, they made a music video with a beer-bottle orchestra and sushi chefs. I don’t know what I’m more excited about: the sushi, the calliope-style music, or the sexy brew-blowing gents.

And this isn’t any group of bottle-whistling musicians. The Bottle Boys have quite the repertoire of music videos all using their finely tuned assorted ales. Using empty Kirin Ichiban bottles, the Danish hunks created a delicious video accompanied by the sounds of sushi chefs and salmon rolls.

It’s music to my tummy. Check out the video after the jump.

easter bunny jello shots

Easter isn’t really Easter until you slurp vodka-infused Jell-O out of a chocolate bunny head right? Sounds like the beginning of a wholesome new tradition to me.

If you’d like to learn how to make these shots, head on over to Oh Bite It!


Old bottles can be turned in and recycled, but it’s even better if you can upcycle them into something new. Suck UK has developed a rechargeable bottle light that will turn those old bottles into beautiful lamps.

It looks like a regular cork, but with a little white LED light at the bottom to illuminate the lamp. It’ll shine for up to 3 hours before you need to give it a recharge.

These wonderfully creepy handmade mugs are the work of etsy seller Kilikia Designs. Each is slightly different and features a twisting mass of tentacles climbing over the edge of the cup. You’ll have to be extra brave to drink from one of these in the morning.

Coffee lovers, rejoice! Starbucks is teaming up with delivery startup Postmates to let people order food and drinks for delivery. It’s all done through the Starbucks mobile app and will roll out first as a test in Seattle and NYC.

More specifically, the NYC test will happen in the Empire State Building. The Starbucks location in the building will be able to deliver to anyone in the offices above.

The test is set to kick off in the latter half of 2015, so here’s hoping that all goes well and a rollout to the rest of the country isn’t far off.

Who’s the number one dog in all of Ooo? That’s Jake, of course! Finn’s bestest buddy is all over this Adventure Time Stretched Jake mug, which can hold 20 ounces of your favorite caffeinated beverage. Too bad this version of Jake can’t stretch into the shape of a coffee mug the size of a swimming pool, because that’s what I really need in the morning.
