You may remember our previous coverage of this Pac Man cabinet, which is now available along with a Space Invaders version. Each measures 1″ x 2″ x 3.25″ and packs approx. 30 pieces of candy. Here’s an overly enthusiastic description from the product page:
Each tin is shaped like an arcade cabinet, like the ones you lovingly fed coins. And inside each tin of Arcade Cabinet Candy is (you guessed it) candy! More specifically: Pac-Man or Space Invaders candy – whichever one you chose! And what do they taste like? Well, Pac-Man tastes like strawberry, just like the real Pac-Man (long story; trust us), while the Space Invaders taste like other-worldly sour apple. Best of all, once you eat the candy, you can keep neato things in the empty tin. Might we suggest quarters? Then you’ll be the coolest kid at the arcade! All thanks to Arcade Cabinet Candy. Yay!

Nicole of Cake Haute Couture received a request for a cake that celebrated “old school” video games. She figured including just one game wasn’t enough. Instead, she came up with a perfect design that included Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, Frogger, and Tetris. It’s obviously a fun cake, but it also looks classy. That couldn’t have been easy to pull off.

The antiquated bulk associated with classic arcade cabinets is definitely a good thing when used for storing food – even on a reduced scale. That’s exactly what you’ll find with this Pac-Man tin, which provides a retro vibe and comes to you already filled with candy.
The tin is currently available for pre-order, and is expected to drop in March.

This pint glass has markings that help you accurately measure servings of beer, wine or spirits. It also shows that Pac-Man prefers beer, but he sometimes moves to spirits after he’s a little tipsy—and we all know that’s a recipe for disaster. By 3am he’s backtracked to wine, and has somehow turned into a bird with a monocle and a top hat.

If you are thinking about what to get for lunch today, you might want to pick up a few Kid’s Meals from Wendy’s because they are kicking off a Pac-Man promotion with five new toys. You’re never too old for that.
