Remember when Twinkies almost went extinct a few years ago? Well they ROARED back, and now they’re shape-shifting.
Hostess just rolled out brand new TWINKIES ICE CREAM. And they also made flavors based on Ding Dongs, Sno Balls, and those cupcakes that have cream in the middle and a squiggly white line of frosting on top.
The ice creams are on sale at Dollar General stores and apparently some other random convenience stores around the country through May. Good luck tracking them down.
Oreo’s path to total junk food domination just took another big step forward. And I, for one, welcome our insane cookies-and-cream overlords.
Oreo just introduced their first CANDY BAR. It’s a gigantic milk chocolate bar that’s stuffed with layers of cream and Oreo cookies. And the chocolate is fancy, expensive European chocolate.
It’s starting to roll out to stores now and should be everywhere by January. And a smaller version will also be coming out then, in case you’re into moderation.
What do your kids love more . . . their phone, or ice cream? Well, Chick-fil-A wants to help you find out.
They’re running a new promotion at 150 locations around the country, where everyone in your family can get a free ice cream cone . . . but only if none of you touch your PHONES for the entire meal.
You have to put them in a cardboard box in the middle of the table, and leave them there until you’re done with your food. And the point is to give you 15 to 20 minutes where you actually TALK to each other instead of playing games and texting.
Or if you could all just power through WITHOUT talking, get it down to five minutes, and STILL get free ice cream. Boom . . . your move Chick-fil-A.
It’s not clear which locations are doing it, so you might want to call ahead.

This Christmas, like every Christmas, there’s a chance your significant other is going to give you something HORRIBLE. So how are you going to react?
A new survey asked women what they do with a particularly bad gift. Here’s how they handle it . . .
- 33% return it immediately.
- 25% actually wear or use it to avoid hurting their partner’s feelings.
- 20% re-gift it.
- And 10% sell it on eBay.
The survey also found 40% of women now pick out what they want their significant other to buy them . . . and 30% practice looking thankful in the mirror in case they have to react to a present they don’t like.
Women also named the WORST gifts they’ve ever gotten. Here’s the top 10 . . .
- A chainsaw.
- Nose hair trimmers.
- A fishing pole.
- A fossil.
- Hair removal cream.
- A dustpan and brush.
- A sweater with an alien printed on it.
- A tube and funnel to help pee outdoors.

Starbucks Has a New Drink That’s Supposed to Taste Like Cereal Milk
Starbucks is selling the Pumpkin Spice Latte again, but they hadn’t introduced a NEW drink for fall in four years. Finally, our national nightmare is over.
Yesterday, they started selling the Toasted Graham Latte. It’s made with espresso, steamed milk, sweet cream, and graham cracker flavoring, with cinnamon and crumbled graham crackers on top.
Their manager of research and development came up with it, and she says it’s supposed to taste like the milk in the bottom of your CEREAL bowl. At least, that’s what inspired it.
Quote, “I thought about the back-to-school season and looked at the latest food and beverage trends. [And] what I found to be quite popular in the U.S. is the taste of cereal milk, the delicious leftovers in your breakfast bowl.”
You can get it at any Starbucks, quote, “until supplies run out.” Whatever that means.
