Sugar Rush

chocolate bathroom 1

Bathroom sweets aren’t the same as bathroom suites, but consumers don’t always use the correct word when they search on Bathrooms.com. The CEO of the company, Ian Monk, said they decided answer searches for “bathroom sweets” with a literal interpretation. They worked with Choccywoccydoodah to make an entire bathroom suite with Belgian chocolate fixtures. It’s packed with calories (an estimated 9.4 million of them) and is actually being sold online for $133,000 at Bathroom Sweets.

The chocolate set comes with a tub, toilet, sink, and bidet, and the components are available separately. If kept at room temperature, the chocolate pieces supposedly have a six month shelf life. In case it’s not clear, you are not actually supposed to use them – only eat them.

chocolate lego 1

Want to build a LEGO castle out of your food? Illustrator and designer Akihiro Mizuuchi has achieved that dream by designing edible chocolate LEGO bricks. He fashioned several molds – most likely from silicone – for melted chocolate, and once the pieces cool, they look and function exactly like LEGO bricks. Just imagine the dessert possibilities. I wish I could order the molds!

Bananas are a healthy snack at all, but our fit, slim and all-together-super-health-conscious country doesn’t need any more healthy snacks.  We need something that could take a healthy piece of fruit, like a banana, and then fill it with lots of caramel. Oh, why hasn’t someone invented something that could solve this particular dilemma?

Well, it looks like DestapaBanana is here to rectify the problem. This nifty little tool basically injects all sorts of fillings into a banana (that’s still in its peel) by removing the core. Then you just fill it up with flavor from a bottle. You can also cork it and take it on-the-go for later.

Unfortunately, there’s no word on when the DestapaBanana will be available commercially.

General Mills’ old-school “Monster Cereal” characters–Boo Berry, Frankenberry and Count Chocula–are getting a makeover. DC Comics recently partnered with General Mills to help redesign these retro monsters (they all originally premiered in the ’70s) with the hopes of making them more relevant for modern consumers. According to USA Today, DC co-publisher Jim Lee redesigned Boo Berry, Terry and Rachel Dodson (Marvel Knights Spider-Man, Uncanny X-Men) redid Chocula and Dave Johnson (Deadpool, 100 Bullets) spruced up good ol’ Frankenberry. Aside from the redesigned boxes, each cereal will feature comic strips by Brent Schoonover (Batman ’66).

Check out the redesigned characters after the break…

ice cream donuts

Donuts and coffee are already a match made in heaven so it makes sense to combine them into sugary goodness. Dunkin’ Donuts has introduced not one, but two coffee flavored donuts – the first of their kind to be made with their Original Blend Coffee. They’re offering a Glazed Coffee Creme Donut and a Coffee, Creme, & Sugar Donut.

From the press release:

Glazed Coffee Creme Donut features a glazed yeast shell filled with coffee buttercreme and drizzled with chocolate icing

Coffee, Creme & Sugar Donut features a yeast shell filled with coffee buttercreme and finished in powdered sugar

I’m not really a fan of creme filling, but for the sake of coffee flavored donuts, I’d give these a try.

cookie cutter 1

Gingerbread people are cute, but they don’t have a big range of motion. The Jay Disco Biscuits Posable Cookie Cutter is willing and ready to help stiff gingerbread cookies find some life. The plastic and food safe cookie cutter comes with interchangeable arms and legs so you can make your treats dance (or Kung Fu fight) across the baking sheet.

Dan Collins with KIKN 100.5 in Sioux Falls heard this strange little rumor that Walmart’s Great Value Ice Cream Sandwiches don’t really melt. So Dan conducted a little experiment and left one outdoors in 80 degree heat for over an hour. Guess what happened?

It didn’t melt–it only oozed a weird clear liquid. That can mean only one thing: It’s a mutant! It’s a hybrid sandwich! No! No! Kill it with fire! Oh, wait it doesn’t melt–never mind! Just run away!

Check out Dan’s video after the break…
