If you’re familiar with the world of competitive eating, you’ll recognize the name Matt Stonie. In fact, he is currently the second-ranked competitive eater in the official Major League Eating rankings. He holds records for eating all sorts of stuff, but I have to imagine that the Peeps challenge is among the most difficult. Still, he managed to consume a record 255 Peeps in only five minutes. Think about how your stomach would feel after something like that. Then again, maybe you shouldn’t think about it. And you damn sure had better not think about what would happen if the Peeps challenge involved this. At any rate, if you can handle watching someone eat 255 Peeps, by all means—check out the video below. [click to continue…]

Good thing Dracula survives on blood and not frappuccinos, because Dracula would end up doing unspeakable things for his next fix while living in a cardboard coffin in a dark Transylvania alley.
Still, Starbucks is using Dracula as the inspiration for their Halloween frappuccino dubbed “Frappula”.
Frappula Frappuccino blended beverage is made with white chocolate sauce, milk and ice blended together then layered between mocha sauce and a dollop of whipped cream. A drizzle of raspberry syrup oozes from the rim, which is finished with whipped cream on top.
The drink will be available in U.S. stores from October 28-31.
