fruity crisp oreo

It’s “Fruity Crisp” not “Fruity Pebbles”. Totally different*

There have been many, many limited edition novelty Oreo flavors—but this is the first we’ve seen that are inspired by cereal (and a brand not owned by Nabisco at that). It is expected to hit stores next week.

Oh, and there’s also a Blueberry Pie version that’s coming exclusively to Target. Meh.

Cereal Oreos! Think of the possibilities! Cereal Oreo cereal in the morning perhaps?

*Totally not different.

The USDA has unveiled its new design for nutrition facts labels and, as you can see in the example above, there are some notable changes.

In addition to the size increase for calorie and serving size information, the new labels will include an “added sugars” section that requires manufacturers to separate natural sugars from those added during processing. Vitamin D and potassium will also be added, while requirements for Vitamins A and C information will be dropped due to the rarity of A and C deficiencies in the general population.

Details relating to Percent Daily Values will also be tweaked to read “The % Daily Value (DV) tells you how much a nutrient in a serving of food contributes to a daily diet. 2,000 calories a day is used for general nutrition advice.”

Food manufacturers will have to implement the changes by July 2018, while smaller manufacturers with less than $10 million in annual food sales will have until 2019.

These cozy plush slippers are based on that adorable little worm from Labyrinth. You know, the one that says “‘Ello” to Sarah in the maze?

They’re listed as “one size fits most adults up to size 12” but even if you have tiny feet, how could you not get them and just wander around the house saying “‘Ello” to people?
