As if watching your waistline isn’t hard enough during the latter part of the year, Dunkin Donuts just made it damn near impossible with two new flavors that will be available for a limited time this fall.

The first, a Pumpkin Cheesecake Square, features pumpkin cheesecake filling inside a plain donut which is topped with graham cracker crumbs, white drizzle and orange colored icing.

The second, a Reese’s Peanut Butter Square, is a joint effort with the Hershey Company and sports Reese’s peanut butter filling with chocolate icing and orange colored drizzle.

These new offerings hit shelves nationwide starting today and will continue to be offered through October 2015.

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.

During the Expo Milano 2015 in Italy, a group of pizza makers broke the Guinness World Record for cooking up what’s officially the longest pizza ever. The pizza (a classic Margherita) clocked in at an astounding 1,595.45 meters in length, which is just under a mile long.

General Mills is officially jumping aboard the natural ingredients train. Much like Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and Panera have planned with their offerings, General Mills has announced that they will remove artificial colors and flavors from their entire line of cereal products.

Artificial colors like Red 40, Yellow 6 and Blue 1 will be phased out and replaced with colors made using spices and fruit and vegetable concentrates. The process will begin with Cocoa Puffs, Reese’s Puffs and Trix making the switch by the end of the year. The process will be completed in 2017.

If you aren’t familiar with Crystal Pepsi, it was part of the clear soda fad that came and went quickly the early 1990s. However, we are now learning that it may actually be poised for a comeback after competitive eater / Crystal Pepsi fan Kevin Strahle tweeted that he had received a letter from the company on Crystal Pepsi stationery that stated:

“We’ve had customers ask us to bring back their favorite products before, but never with your level of enthusiasm and humor… We definitely hear you and your followers and we think you’ll be happy with what’s in store… Stay tuned.”

AdAge confirmed with PepsiCo that the letter is genuine, but reps wouldn’t reveal any additional details other than “Crystal Pepsi fans are going to be happy with what we have planned”.

Indiana has followed New Hampshire’s lead by releasing bacon-scented scratch-off lottery tickets. However, the Hoosier state went a step further by giving players the opportunity to win a 20 year supply of everyone’s favorite meat.

If you should happen to bring home the bacon, it will be paid out in 20 installments worth approximately $250 each in order to accommodate for fridge space.

Beyond that, if you should find yourself questioning the possibility of consuming that much bacon, winners can instead opt for a one-time lump payment of $5,000.

Let the games begin.
