Twix by the yard

Measuring your candy bar intake just got a whole lot easier. You can buy Twix by the yard now.

Eric Stangel tweeted the above photo which equates 18 twin bar packs of Twix to a Twix Yard. Hopefully they don’t decide to make a king-size version that covers and entire football field.

Thanks to the destruction of the second Death Star, there is an abundance of Stormtrooper helmets floating around the galaxy. Thankfully, they’ve been repurposed as cookie jars. Don’t worry. The heads have been scooped out and everything was sanitized.

It also pairs wonderfully with this Darth Vader Cookie Jar.

Do you remember that scene in The Empire Strikes back when the audience sees the back of Vader’s head when his helmet is being removed? Well, now you can recreate that scene with this awesome Darth Vader Helmet Cookie Jar. But instead of seeing a scarred, wrinkled old man noggin’ when you lift up the helmet, you’ll get to see some delicious cookies! Yeah, cookies are definitely a lot more pleasant.

Officially licensed by Lucasfilm, this highly detailed jar is perfect for holding a vast assortment of snacks for when you finally decide to give into the Dark Side in the middle of the night.

A built-in ice dispenser is convenient during the hot summer months, but at this time of year a candy dispenser is even better. Redditor dericpeace decided to try out the idea and the result is the stuff of childhood dreams.

Literally just came to me the other night, and I said, I don’t really use the ice maker for ice, and I wonder…the next morning I spent about 40 dollars at Rite-Aid, and the woman who checked me out thought I was an idiot. Probably still am, but when I poured in the first batch of reese’s cups, and they just poured out like I hit the candy jackpot, I was beside myself. I love candy, I love making things easier, and making non-useful things (to me) more so. That’s really it.

Clearly, that Rite-Aid cashier doesn’t recognize genius when she sees it.

fried candy corn

Looking for something new to do with candy corn? Amy of Oh, Bite It has an idea for you: deep fry the yellow, orange, and white pieces of sugar. I can’t say that it looks appealing, but the process could create a tasty ball of melted candy. She used Pillsbury crescent dough for the breading and put four pieces of candy corns into each ball. Then she deep fried away and made ooey gooey candy corn puffs.

Get the full recipe and how-to over at Oh, Bite It.

Halloween is just over two weeks away, and if you’re having a party you should start thinking about snacks. This new chocolate mold from ThinkGeek would make a great addition because it has everything you need to make a graveyard scene – even zombies! You can use it for chocolate and also for ice and Jell-O. Anything you can squish into a mold is fair game.

Use the finished zombie and tombstone pieces as cake or cupcake toppers or simply arrange them on top of chocolate cake crumbs in a bowl.

Starburst Freeze

Taco Bell has the best beverages and treats. They already have the Mountain Dew Baja Blast Freeze, but now they’re getting even cooler with a Starburst Freeze. The brand new menu item was made available starting yesterday, and it looks pink, sugary, and refreshing. I can’t wait to try it. I wonder if it will go with a Doritos taco?

snickers-donut-bar

LA-based donut shop/culinary dream factory California Donuts has a rather unique donut that’s been garnering quite a bit of attention lately. It’s called the Snickers Bar Donut. Why? Because it features an entire Snickers candy bar inside of a flippin’ donut.

Mind blown? Yeah, well it gets even better: the donut is topped with peanuts and chocolate chips too. So if I were you, I’d head on over to California Donuts and pick up one of these tasty treats. The shop’s Instagram page makes it look like the Snickers Bar Donut is available intermittently, so just check before you decide to pop over for a visit.

Check out some more pics after the break…

Snickers continues their “You’re not you when you’re hungry” campaign with an ad that features Rowan Atkinson as the legendary Mr. Bean. The character he plays has lost his kung fu skills because he’s hungry. Once he eats a Snickers candy bar though, all is right with the world.

Watch the commercial after the break.
