This Poké Ball doesn’t hold Pokémon, but it DOES hold snacks like chips and maybe even some dip, which might be better depending on your (stomach’s) viewpoint.
The Poké Ball Serving Bowls come with two dishwasher safe halves of the classic ball used in the Poké-verse. The red top and white bottom can slot together and will equal the approximate size of a volleyball. Sure, that is more than adequate space for your pet hamster to roll around in while you pretend it’s a Pokémon, but that might count as hamster abuse so don’t do it. Instead, fill it with tasty snacks. Preferably the cheesy variety.

We all learn how to dunk our cookies into a nice, tall glass of milk pretty early in our lives, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. Sometimes the cookie slips from your grip. Sometimes you over-dunk and soggy bits go floating off into your milk. The Dunkin’ Buddy makes the whole process easier by magnetically attaching a dunking tray to any glass. It safely holds your cookie and then you can dunk it into the milk without fear of losing it or ending up with a bunch of soggy cookie remains in your glass. It’s not quite ready for sale, but you can keep an eye on their site and be among the first to dunk with ease.

Some kids want to be Batman or Disney characters for Halloween. Not Redditor MoobytheGoldenCalf’s son. He asked to be a vending machine. Since past years’ Halloween costumes have included a traffic cone and a mailbox, it’s clear the kid has a thing for inanimate objects. MoobytheGoldenCalf constructed the costume and stocked it with real snacks. He explains:
The front has a plastic/plexiglass sheet so that kids don’t run up to him and steal the chips. The slot on the right is the candy deposit slot, so the candy goes down a chute into the “push” bin section at the bottom. The inside of it has a piece of mirror film on the back of the chip area, so that he can see out, but people can’t see him. And the thing lights up too, which is probably a good idea as it’s just a black box from the back.

If you fear spicy foods, then this bag of Ghost Pepper Cheddar Popcorn is most definitely not for you. Just FYI, the Ghost Pepper (Bhut Jolokia) is one of the hottest peppers in the world. It’s overall heat rating is around 850,000-1,400,000 SHU, and just for some proper context, a jalapeño pepper has a heat rating of round 3500 SHU. So yeah, this cheesy-but-spicy popcorn is only for folks with tastebuds that can handle extreme, borderline-insane spiciness.
