Loot Crate has announced the theme of their subscription box for March, and it’s titled “COVERT”. The description reads:

Calling all Agents of Loot!: We’re entrusting you with this top-secret (until now) intel: March’s Loot Crate is a dynamite, jam-packed collection of COVERT operations! We have compiled the very best of spies and undercover agents, operatives and espionage of some of your favorite spy & thriller themes and franchises. Among the assets we’ll be delivering are an EXCLUSIVE, officially licensed Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD replica collectible (complete with certificate of authenticity!); plus a Loot Crate Exclusive Orphan Black item; the return of an EXCLUSIVE t-shirt (not black!), plus some incredibly cool undercover-rrific wearable accessories; and much more! So study the mission and get ready to embark on an adventure in March!

Sounds like it’s going to be awesome. They also included an image of the cover of Goldeneye for the N64 in the announcement email which may or may not mean anything.

KFC recently announced that they will be offering Seattle’s Best coffee at its UK locations, and decided to take the launch a step further by pouring the brew into specially designed edible cups.

The chain teamed up with food scientists at The Robin Collective to create the ice cream cone-inspired vessel, dubbed “Scoff-ee Cup”, which is made from a biscuit wrapped in sugar paper and lined with a layer of white chocolate. Over time, the cup will soften to the point where it melts in your mouth.

The cups will also be enhanced with questionable “mood improving aromas”, such as “coconut sun cream”, “freshly cut grass” and “wild flowers” which are intended to “evoke the positive memories we associate with warm weather, sunshine and summer holidays.”

With names like “Kentucky Fried Chicken” and “Seattle’s Best Coffee”, you’d think the states would be the perfect place to debut such an item – but for the time being they will only be offered at a limited number of locations around the UK.

Check out some additional pics after the jump.

Butterfinger bars are delicious, but they’re not exactly healthy. I mean, all that sugar aside, chocolates like these are generally loaded with artificial ingredients—including food dyes and preservatives. However, Nestlé USA is planning on removing these unnatural elements from its chocolate products by the end of this year. Over 250 Nestle chocolate products, ranging from Butterfinger bars to Baby Ruth and 100 Grand bars, will be affected by this change.

wienermobile crash

The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile ran afoul of slick roads on Sunday and smacked into a pole near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. No one was injured, but the wiener took some heavy damage with both a smashed windshield and a broken bun. Oh the humanity!

Although it will be out of commission while it is repaired, there is thankfully more than one Wienermobile. And that’s the lesson here I think. Always have a backup Wienermobile.
