Campbell’s Soup K-Cup For Keurig Coffee Maker

Campbell Soup Co. to make K-cup soup packs that can be made with Green Mountain's Keurig single-serve coffee machines.

Let’s just start things off with a quote:

“Consumers told us we should put Campbell soup in these machines.”
–Green Mountain CEO Brian Kelley

I want to know who these consumers are. First of all, I’m not even sure that the idea of putting coffee in these machines is acceptable! These machines, of course, are the single-serve monstrosities like the Keurig coffeemaker that serve up coffee drinks one K-cup at a time. Ugh. Yes, I get it: convenience wins, it makes sense with multiple users like in an office… and well, that’s all I can think of. “These machines” are glorified coffee vending machines.

Which brings us back to soup. Now, Campbell’s Soup will be available in K-cup form. Stick the soup pod in your coffee maker, press the button and watery soup will be yours to enjoy. If it didn’t happen to be September, I would think this to be an April Fools joke. What, the office doesn’t have a microwave? Ugh. Glad it’s Friday and this thought will be outta my head soon!

Batman’s Booze: None For Affleck?

Batman HIP Flask Stainless Steel 8oz FW2 by Master Price

Not one, but two Change.org online petitions arose out of Warner Brother’s recent announcement that Ben Affleck would be playing Batman in an upcoming movie. This was after the White House petition was taken down. Dang, and you thought Michael Keaton was bad.

Anyway, Batman fans have had a rough go of it lately, so here is a Batman Flask to get you through the dark times ahead. Just think it could be worse: they could bring back Beetlejuice to star in the role.

Beetlejuice Miley Cyrus

Winona is aghast.

Egg Run Holder

Egg Run Holder from Williams-Sonoma

Did you know that eggs come from chickens (mostly) and not just cardboard packaging? Yeah, me neither. But apparently, those little devils are laid and then collected, eventually coming to market. And here all this time I thought they were produced in the Cadbury factory!

Donut Cam For National Doughnut Day From Japan

Chocolate Donut Camera

Members of the human species have evolved into creatures that have long arms. Why? To better hold up their cell phones for picture-taking, of course. However, it is not just the desire to reach higher than low-hanging fruit that has fueled this growth. As always, we as a species strive for more. Like donuts.

The Chocolate Donut Camera gives humans a new reason to reach for the sky. The clever contraption takes stills or video and includes five filters for Instragram-style fun.

We love the color filters and the donut can take stills and videos that will feel delightfully retro. You can also hang your “donut” on your bag or other accessory, and its true-to-life size will make it a fun trick to play on people in need of a snack.

Your subject matter will thank you, because really, what would you rather have pointed at you: a phone or a donut? Plus, there’s the added bonus of knowing that sometime in the future your descendents will thank you for helping to change the course of evolution. See? National Doughnut Day is important! Soon to not only be a worldwide holiday, but one that history will record as a turning point in evolution!
