Molded mugs have been getting crazier and crazier, but the upcoming 20oz Goku mug really takes the cake. I mean—just look at it.

I hope you like a little blood in your coffee because that hair looks like it will shred your face to bejeezus and back. This might be a safer option.

istg_st_planetary_glassware_set_grid

We’ve already seen Planetary Glassware for the planets in our solar system and the fictional planets in Star Wars. It was easy to guess what would be next on the list.

This Star Trek Planetary Glassware Set lets you gaze upon otherworldly beauty while drinking your orange juice. Or tea, Earl Grey, hot. We’ve chosen to highlight several M-class planets: Earth, the capital planet of the United Federation of Planets, home of Starfleet Headquarters, and the location of the main branch of Starfleet Academy; Vulcan, the Vulcan homeworld and a founding member of the United Federation of Planets; Romulus, the homeworld of the Romulans and the capital world of the Romulan Star Empire; and Qo’noS, homeworld of the Klingons and the capital of the Klingon Empire. We also threw in a shot glass for good measure which resembles a Borg Cube, the primary vessel of the Borg Collective. First thing we’re doing when we get ours is filling up Romulus with some good Romulan Ale. Or possibly whatever we can find that’s drinkable and blue around the house. Not Windex.

Yes, don’t drink Windex. Try this.

Old school Disney attractions posters are all wonderful pieces of vintage art. Everyone has their favorite—mine, for instance, is the classic Haunted Mansion poster.

Well, some of these posters got a Star Wars makeover for mugs. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]

North Carolina classics Krispy Kreme and Cheerwine are flipping the script on their previous Cheerwine-infused donut with a donut-flavored soda.

Cheerwine’s normal cherry flavor will be enhanced with a “flavorful hint of Krispy Kreme’s Original Glazed doughnut” in a beverage dubbed “Cheerwine Kreme”.

One customer described the taste as “not bad”, while another said that he neither loved nor hated it. The drink is currently available only in select North Carolina, South Carolina and Savannah, GA locations.

Vegan café Matcha Mylkbar in Melbourne, Australia is offering a blue latte which has been appropriately dubbed the “Smurf Latte”.

The drink contains lemon, ginger agave and coconut milk, and gets its hue from a teaspoon of something called E3 live blue algae powder – whatever that is.

The taste has been described as quite sweet and “soury”, although it’s difficult to pin down because everyone seems to describe it differently.

Even though the Smurf Latte is not officially on the cafe’s menu, the social media attention has resulted in loads of orders. That’s not surprising since it’s a proven fact that changing the color of food is a surefire way to draw attention.
