Palcohol powdered alcohol is here to save you from the horror of having to carry around a heavy bottle of booze. Instead, all you need is a packet of this powdered alcohol and 5 ounces of water. The idea comes from Mark Phillips who leads an active lifestyle and wanted an easier way to enjoy a drink after a day of activity like hiking or camping.

Even though this is powder, it is still alcohol so it will be sold just like alcohol in the US. And yes, this stuff has actually been approved by The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau. There’s already a dehydrated beer out there, so alcohol is just the evolution of the concept.

We know what you’re thinking (which is part of the problem). From the Palcohol website:

Can I snort it? We have seen comments about goofballs wanting to snort it. Don’t do it! It is not a responsible or smart way to use the product. To take precautions against this action, we’ve added volume to the powder so it would take more than a half of a cup of powder to get the equivalent of one drink up your nose. You would feel a lot of pain for very little gain. Just use it the right way.

I’m sure that will stop all the goofballs from trying it. But what about sprinkling it over food?

While I tend to shy away from Krispy Kremes in general (I mean, it’s tough to eat just one!), the company’s latest creation is a little hard to resist. In Japan, Krispy Kreme chains are unveiling the Doughnut Ice Cream Sundae.

There are two types that will be offered: a caramel and yogurt version, which features a doughnut covered with ice cream and sprinkled with caramel corn, toasted almonds and yogurt (the non-frozen variety), and a “healthier” version which features yogurt, blueberry sauce and granola toppings. The sundaes will be available in July.

Natalie of Sideserf Cake Studio made this so-called “Unicorn Farting Rainbow” cake, and despite the “farty” nature of the sweet treat, it actually looks pretty fantastic. The level of detail is impressive: I mean, doesn’t the unicorn look a little relieved to you? Now that’s art right there.

Knowing the former King Robert, his house drink would’ve most likely been anything that had alcohol in it, but Critical Hit Cocktails came up with a boozy beverage in honor of the tubby deceased ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. Remember to cry out the Baratheon words (“Ours is the fury!”) before you down this rather potent drink.

villain cookies 1

Disney movies feature some pretty fantastic and memorable female villains. Mother Gothel, Ursula, the Evil Queen – the list goes on and on. The talented of Ant of Nerdache Cakes recently made a whole set of cookies based on the villains, and she used a cool papercraft technique with fondant. She built them layer by layer and airbrushed the finished products. They look incredible.

There are all sorts of special brews out there, but none claim a heritage like this 3,300-year-old Danish beer. Egtved Girl’s Brew is being made through a partnership between the Danish National Museum and Skand’s Brewery and is based on the dried residue found in an ancient bark beer bucket. The bucket was in a coffin along with the remains of the Egtved Girl, hence the name of the beer. Peter Steen Henriksen, curator of the museum, notes:

“We had the basic list for the beer, but the challenge was to find the relationship between the ingredients, and we had to taste our way to a result. So, is our new brew the drink Egtved girl’s people took to their graves? We cannot know for certain, but it’s an educated guess.”

The beer is said to have the flavor of a wheat beer with malt, honey, bog myrtle, and cranberry.

It might seem that coffee cups live solely to provide you with a warm sip of caffeinated goodness in the mornings, but they have lives far beyond your coffee. At least, that’s what Sydney artist Paul Garbett will have you believing once you take a look at these coffee cup creations that feature everything from snowmen to skulls to monsters.

pizza cake

Behold the pizza cake, brainchild of Canadian chain Boston Pizza and part of their “Pizza Game Changers“ social media campaign. Basically, their promise is “if you like it, we will make it”.

Other Boston Pizza innovations include a gas-powered pizza cutter, pizza mints, and even pizza tacos (pictured after the break). But I think this pizza cake, which they say is “great for birthdays, bar mitzvahs, weddings, and even lonely nights watching infomercials”, may be the greatest of all.

If the commercial after the break is any indication of this company’s commitment to making a name for themselves, I think it’s gonna work..
