Whenever we get fortune cookies, we read our fortune aloud. Without fail, Mr. Geek always “gets” the same message: “Your children will join the legion of the undead.” Now I can surprise him by actually putting that on a fortune!
KC Fortune Cookie Factory is holding an Eversave deal that will get you two giant custom fortune cookies for $10 or 150 custom standard-size cookies for $20. The deal is good until July 22nd, so order soon!
Like many people, I’ve noticed that food in advertisements don’t often look like the food you get at fast food restaurants. McDonald’s Canada has addressed this and took us behind the scenes to show the process of getting the perfect food photo.
As an amateur food photographer, it was really interesting to see the tricks they used to get the shot. Take a look!
This pizza looks amazing, but what’s with the appeal of having this pizza never touch human hands? Whatever happened to things being lovingly handmade?
Would you eat a pizza from a vending machine? (Hint: I so would.)
Prefer to go classic with your cosplay? Join your fellow Shakespeare in the Park lovers dressed as Hamlet, or “Zombie Hamlet who enjoys eating skulls.” It’s pineapple flavor will make you feel like you’re on a tropical island as you’re eating your way into a gummy eye socket. Don’t want your skull to look so realistic? Lucky for you, it comes in a variety of colors/flavors, including lime and blue raspberry.
Find all of these and more (including slugs, worms, shot glasses, and bear party bowls) on sale at Fab.com.
These gorgeous cupcake wrappers/toppers include a sweet fortune for each of your guests. I think these would make the perfect addition for a bridal or baby shower or tea party, and it’s way more unique than your average cupcake wrapper/topper!
There are certain days when I just need a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Half-Baked frozen yogurt. Mr. Geek knows I mean business when I sit down with the pint and a spoon–I won’t be sharing. So when those days come where I don’t finish a pint in one sitting, this lock will come in handy. Alternatively, if you’re trying to avoid ice cream for a couple days, let your partner or roommate set the code for you. It beats ordinary willpower!
Make breakfast and dessert a bit more interesting with this edible furniture mold. You can create scenes, “decorate” furniture with food coloring, syrups, and icing, or top cupcakes with furniture for a housewarming party!
The molds are created by Sapore dei Mobili, and although I don’t think they’re currently for sale, if you’re in the Milan area you can check them out in person. While you’re there, tell them to create a miniature people collection. I want to play D&D with cake–it would make killing minions so delicious!
I love Dippin Dots. It’s ice cream that makes you feel like an astronaut while eating it. How can you get any cooler?
This Dippin Dots maker will allow you to make your own at home, instead of tracking down a lone kiosk in an abandoned mall. I am confused as to why this is only being marketed to children, because I want it right now. It uses mixes or fruit juice to make an at-home treat, and it’s only $26.31. Consider me sold.
