Well, the good news is that you can enjoy that thrill many times over because Starburst is releasing all pink packs for a limited time starting this April! [click to continue…]


Though Martian soil contains a hefty dose of toxic metals like lead and arsenic, Dutch scientists with Wageningen University have recently announced that rye, tomatoes, peas and radishes grown in Martian soil are actually safe to consume.

The scientists have been growing crops in simulated red planet soil since 2013, and while they actually haven’t tasted any of the produce yet, they note that these four can be grown safely on Mars without absorbing dangerous amounts of heavy metals. The researchers are testing other crops (yes, potatoes is among them), and they’re currently working to raise funds for this red-planet-veggie project.

As part of a fun promotion for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, select General Mills cereals will feature cool DC Comics comic books stashed inside.

Specially marked boxes of Lucky Charms, Cocoa Puffs, Golden Grahams, Trix and Honey Nut Cheerios will feature one of four comic books that tie into the movie.

“All the comics that we’ve done to support Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice were directly inspired by the film,” says Alex Antone, editor at DC Comics. “Even though plot details of the film are top secret, we worked closely with filmmakers to make sure our stories were consistent. While all major reveals are saved for the film, eagle-eyed readers may discover a few clues in the comics about what’s to come.”

PepsiCo announced yesterday that Crystal Pepsi is returning from the 1990s graveyard for an extremely limited run. In fact, it’s so limited that 16 oz six packs will only be offered as awards in a Pepsi contest that will run from Dec. 10 to 11 on the Pepsi Pass app.

PepsiCo will choose 13,000 winners who will receive the product as a “special holiday treat” for fans who long for a clear cola that the world rejected decades ago. Unfortunately, it’s almost a tease for the winners since gratification will be limited to a single six pack.

Six-year-old Na’Ama Uzan is a Toronto local on a mission: for a year and a half, she’s been running a lemonade stand with the hopes of raising funds to help find a cure for Angelman Syndrome, a rare neurological disorder that her brother suffers from.

Actors Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney, who are playing Harley Quinn and Captain Boomerang respectively in the upcoming Suicide Squad film, were on their way to the movie’s wrap party when they decided to stop by Uzan’s stand.

Courtney noted to CTV News that he was pretty inspired by Uzan’s story:

“We heard about Na’Ama’s story and what she was doing for her brother Nadav and I just think it’s so inspiring. It just shows that there’s there is no act too small when you are talking about making a difference.”

Robbie also chimed in:

“I used to do old little stands like this when I was little,” said Robbie to CTV. “I’d just spend the profits on lollies at the corner store so I’m glad she is doing something far more noble with the cause.”

“Congratulations, son, you’re about to be famous.”

While the officer is addressing those words to the perp, I think it’s also true for Lt. Higgins himself. His passion and determination to get whoever it was that robbed Stelly’s Restaurant is palpable. Seriously, this guy is a star:

“The Sheriff likes Stelly’s restaurant. And so do I….We’re going to identify you, arrest you, and put you in a small cell. After that, I’m going to have a cheeseburger here, with fries and a coke…Meanwhile, your next meal with be served through a small hole in a cell door.”

Trust me on this. Watch it after the break.

Do you know how much food we as a nation throw out annually? About a third, which adds up to roughly 730 football stadiums each year. Since the 1970s, that number has actually climbed by 50 percent. Meanwhile, millions of Americans go hungry each day.

So, what’s our problem? During the most recent episode of Last Week Tonight, John Oliver set out to answer this question. Check it out after the break…

Oreo fans will be happy (or maybe a little sad) to hear that Nabisco has unleashed another new-ish Oreo flavor onto the world. These Key Lime Pie Oreos were spotted by Consumerist at a New York-based Price Chopper, and the Impulsive Buy reported spotting the new Oreos at a Texas H-E-B.

Basically, they’re a combination of Oreo s’mores graham cookie with last summer’s limeade creme.

There hasn’t been any official word on these Oreos, so there’s no telling what availability will be like in stores. However, you can buy them for ridiculous prices on Amazon.
