Activision recently unveiled plans for a brand new quest in Destiny that has fans a little ticked off. The expansion, called The Taken King, will feature a new “never-before-seen, multi-stage mission in [upcoming expansion] The Taken King that will test the speed and strategic abilities of Destiny players in new ways.”

However, it’s only available to Destiny fans once they purchase a can of spasm-inducing Red Bull.

You may have thought that deep-fried butter was the pinnacle of outlandish fair food, but the powers that be at the San Diego County Fair have found something else to tempt you away from dollars: deep-fried Starbucks coffee.

The concoction reportedly consists of deep fried balls of dough stuffed with ground coffee, dusted with sugar, topped with whipped cream and served on a stick.

The fried coffee is available at the Bacon-A-Fair booth, although there’s no word yet on how it actually tastes.

If you aren’t familiar with Crystal Pepsi, it was part of the clear soda fad that came and went quickly the early 1990s. However, we are now learning that it may actually be poised for a comeback after competitive eater / Crystal Pepsi fan Kevin Strahle tweeted that he had received a letter from the company on Crystal Pepsi stationery that stated:

“We’ve had customers ask us to bring back their favorite products before, but never with your level of enthusiasm and humor… We definitely hear you and your followers and we think you’ll be happy with what’s in store… Stay tuned.”

AdAge confirmed with PepsiCo that the letter is genuine, but reps wouldn’t reveal any additional details other than “Crystal Pepsi fans are going to be happy with what we have planned”.

These unique cups are the creation of Julian Lechner who has recycled coffee grounds into the very vessels that hold coffee.

He mixes the grounds with renewable raw materials to create the lightweight cups. And yes, they still smell like coffee.

An initial run of 250 Kaffeeform Cups will be sold exclusively at the Amsterdam Coffee Festival, but it seems like there are plans for a larger commercial run in the future.
