You’d think all that fur would be better for keeping things hot, but this Chewbacca fur can hugger is perfect for keeping your drinks cold. It even has a bandolier for your beer!
It’s a song about a cute little kitty on The Big Bang Theory, but it’s a bit more sinister when applied to the Daleks in Doctor Who. This mug from HX5Designs even has David Tennant’s Doctor wielding his trusty sonic screwdriver. It looks like he’s going to need it.

Because your Frappuccino isn’t sweet enough already, you’ll now be able to enjoy it through a cookie straw. Starbucks has just introduced the “rolled sweet wafer biscuit lined with rich chocolate ganache” at stores in the US and Canada. You can add one to your order for $.95.
Needless to say, this sort of thing won’t help Starbucks in its quest to be taken seriously in the coffee world. Maybe they should convert to a milkshake shop that just happens to sell coffee.
It’s easy to keep drinks cold with a cooler, but it’s not always easy to lug that cooler around on all your adventures. BevPod aims to solve that problem with a cooler that’s just 3″ wide, lightweight, and super easy to transport. It comes with reusable ice packs that will keep 6 beer bottles, 10 single serving plastic bottles or cans, or 5 split wine bottles nice and cold.
They’ve launched a Kickstarter for the cooler with a $34 pledge getting one delivered to your door in September.

These mugs by Joel Cherrico of Cherrico Pottery were inspired by images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. From the product page:
- Durable: Stoneware pottery is very hard and meant to last a lifetime.
- Functional: 100% non-toxic and dishwasher safe.
- Handcrafted: I make each pot from a lump of Stoneware clay on a pottery wheel.
- Complex: Every mug is brushed with up to 5 different glaze colors.
- Earthen: Raw iron, copper and cobalt are harvested from the earth & fired in a kiln to 2400 degrees F to seal colors with silica glaze for non-toxic, food-safe surfaces.
- One of a Kind: Each firing results in glazes that I can never duplicate exactly.
He calls them Cosmic Mugs and there’s currently a waiting list so sign up now and get in line for your own space-inspired mug.

Much like you do after a cup of coffee in the morning, Goku will power up before your eyes when hot liquid is poured into this Dragon Ball Z Goku Heat Reactive Mug.

Etsy seller “LennyMud” is offering a handmade, 16 oz, dishwasher and microwave safe ceramic unicorn mug emblazoned with the promise “Today Will Be Awesome”.
While this will likely be true for those whose happy place is populated by unicorns and rainbows, the rest of us will probably end up referring to this thing as a dirty, stinking liar – especially after the coffee runs out.

If you’re an aspiring neurologist (or maybe a zombie who hates water stains), then you’ll definitely love these Brain Specimen Coasters. The set features 10 coasters, and each one has a detailed horizontal section of a human brain printed on it. If you stack all ten coasters in the correct order (and they’re labeled so it’s pretty easy to do), and look at it from the correct angle, you’ll see a fully assembled human brain!
Oh, and we checked: the brain featured in these coasters didn’t belong to a one “Abby Normal.”

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.
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.
