Aside from Jedi Knights and scruffy smugglers, there’s only one other thing that the Empire absolutely loathes—water ring stains on tables.

That’s why every Stormtrooper is issued with a pack of drink coasters featuring a First Order Stormtrooper, the Flametrooper, the Icetrooper, and Captain Phasma.

Glassware and outdoor parties rarely mix well. Fortunately, Snow Peak has developed silicone glasses look exactly like normal fancy glasses, but they’re super flexible and virtually unbreakable. In fact, the glasses retain their shape even during extreme temperatures (we’re talking -4°F to all the way up to 390°F).

Snow Peak offers three versions: a wine glass, a whiskey glass and a high ball glass.

Pepsi has become the latest company associated with Back To The Future II to make products featured in the film a reality. Indeed, Pepsi Perfect will be an extremely limited edition offering staring on October 21, 2015—the same date Marty McFly arrived in the future and ordered the beverage.

PepsiCo’s senior director of marketing, Lou Arbetter tells The Hollywood Reporter:

“Fans have always been a little crazy about it. So we wanted to take advantage of the fact that Marty traveled to the future, to this month, and wanted to actually come out with the product.”

Pepsi plans to release the beverage in a limited run of only 6,500 bottles, available while supplies last. Fortunately for us, the 16.9 oz. bottle will retail for $20.15 which is a steal compared to Marty’s bill of $50 in the movie. And while the Pepsi Perfect bottles will be packaged in a special futuristic case, the cola will be the same formula as Pepsi with real sugar.

For those attending NYCC this weekend, the first 200 fans dressed as Marty McFly will receive Pepsi Perfect bottles on each day of the convention. Pepsi will also be celebrating with a booth inspired by “Café ’80s,” featuring a DeLorean and even a Wild Gunman arcade game.

These clever Moon Glasses from Tale Design actually mimic the various moon phases as they’re being filled with your preferred beverage (though white beverages work best).

Two small glasses (2.7 fluid ounces) will run you about $24, while the larger (5.7 ounces) glasses go for about $30. The glasses are sent from South Korea, but orders over $100 are shipped for free – and they do ship internationally.

emotional pepsi

Man, now I feel really bad for saying “no, not at all” when a waiter/waitress responds to my request for a Diet Coke with “is Pepsi ok?”.

Indeed, Lesly Villegas begins crying after tasting Pepsi for the first time. You see, she’s allergic to caffeine and her boyfriend finally enlightened her to the fact that caffeine free soda exists.

I can’t imagine the kind of joy she would have experienced if that soda was caffeine free Dr. Pepper or something.

mighty mug barware

I think it’s safe to say that most of us have probably suffered the embarrassment of tipping over a glass of wine or beer after a few drinks. Well, that problem may have been solved by Mighty Mug Barware.

The glasses are made out of BPA Free Tritan plastic and feature patented Smartgrip technology:

Not to be confused with a magnet or suction cup, the Smartgrip at the bottom of the cup creates a vacuum that locks the mug onto the surface – effectively preventing it from being knocked over. The vacuum is released instantly when the mug is lifted straight up (requiring no extra effort).

The vacuum allows the glasses to withstand bumps from 360 degrees, so your rug, clothes and dignity will remain unsullied.
