Body Parts Lollipops

It’s almost Halloween, and food on a stick is always in style. Body Parts Lollipops will get you in the spirit for the goriest of holidays. And, with a sweet treat impaled on a stick, you can get an early start on next year’s state fair.

The set includes four yummy body parts – brain, heart, finger, and eyeball.


The Holdster Mason Jar Mug

In keeping with the awesome new trend of finding alternative uses for the ubiquitous Ball Jar, the Holdster will help turn your jar into the coolest of drinking vessels. Each Holdster is handmade from genuine vegetable-tanned full-grain leather, and secured at the seam by either copper rivets or a cross-stitch.

Not only will The Holdster keep your mason jar secure and easier to handle, but it will help insulate, and will have your drinking hand smelling of rich leather all day. The Holdster is currently sold out on its site, but more extensive production is planned and looking for funding on Kickstarter.

Photoshop’s New Chinese Food Tool

Do you have photos of Chinese food that are a bit too appealing? Would you like to give them the authentic look of a Chinese restaurant menu? Then be sure to include Photoshop’s New Chinese Food Tool in your next Creative Suite.

Actually part of a parody video by CollegeHumor, the fake PS plug-in would help add very realistic effects to your Chinese food photos. Use the option for making the photo appear sun-faded and creased, the ‘aging’ filter on your white rice, or add way too many textures to your Kung Pao.

Darth Vader and Stormtrooper Salt and Pepper Shakers

When you find your food’s lack of seasoning disturbing, The Darth Vader and Stormtrooper Salt and Pepper Shakers are here to help. The shakers are a limited edition item in honor of Star Wars Celebration VI — a major Star Wars geekfest.

Use them the next time you set your dinner table, or at your next R2-BBQ.

Ice Cream Moons by Doshi Levien

That’s no moon. Nor is it a mere scoop of ice cream. It’s part of a series of ice cream cakes by designers Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien for Häagen-Dazs.

Inspired by Georges Méliès’ 1902 silent film Le Voyage dans la Lune, and Armenian surrealist Léon Tutundjian’s relief work of 1929 — the perfectly orbed ice cream is given craters and filled with layers of cake and other goodies.

UPDATE: A limited number of the Häagen-Dazs Ice Moon Cakes will be available in the UK starting October 24th. Details can be found at
