Sweet potatoes are good. S’mores are pretty awesome. So, if you want both and you’re in a rush, the Smortato makes perfect sense.

Brought to us by The Vulgar Chef, the Smortato is a baked potato with all the fixins. Those fixins being S’mores… in case you weren’t paying attention.

It’s summer and ice cream’s gonna melt. So, we might as well try to appreciate the hypnotic beauty of this process.

Creamlapse is brought to us by filmmaker Mateo Cabeza. The video is melting ice cream and nothing but melting ice cream, and we have no problem with that. Please enjoy.

Homer Simpson Wine

Although, wine might be a little too high-brow for Homer Simpson, designers Constantin Bolimond and Dmitry Patsukevich brings us a Simpsons-inspired wine.

Claiming to have been created 25 years ago “as an experiment to make people speculate as to what’s actually in the wine bottle,” the design is inspired by the minimalist style of Mondrian.

Whether there’s an actual wine in the bottle is up for debate… although we think the bottle copy is a cryptic message that simply refers to the television series itself. All design and no wine makes Homer something, something.

If you’d like to get your kids addicted to lunch, consider whipping up a batch of Puzzle Potatoes. Designed to resemble Tetris blocks — youngsters can build up their lunch wall, hoping that the straight piece arrives soon.

So, pass the ketchup, and then spend the rest of lunch explaining to the kids how you used to play Tetris for 18-hours at a time.

When New Zealand-based Think Packaging was asked to create a music-inspired box to hold a series of Beck’s Beer bottles, the result was a vintage boom box.

Housed in the retro music player are six bottles of beer – each label inspired by a particular music genre. So, grab a box, throw it over your shoulder, and head to your next 80s party. Your neon-clad friends will thank you.
