An Entire Box Of Cheez-Its Is Crammed Into The Brand’s Official 100-Year Cake

Cheez-It is celebrating their 100th birthday this year, and went both big and bold when it came to how they’re sharing the festivities with everyone.

They teamed up with celebrity chef Stephanie Izard to create a birthday cake that has an entire box of Cheez-Its crammed inside. The crackers are ground into the flour used to make the cake batter, crumbled into a shortbread that goes in between each cake layer, and dipped in chocolate for a sweet and salty topping.

The actual flavor of the cake draws some inspiration from Garret popcorn mix, with swirls of caramel imbued throughout to balance the strength of the cheesy crackers’ aroma.

Anyone interested in the cake has some limited opportunities to score one, as they’ll be sold on Goldbelly from May 17th – May 20th. Each day, a limited number of Cheez-It Cakes will go on sale at 12 pm EDT, and are available on a first come, first serve basis.

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, and for those scrambling to find something they think their moms would enjoy, look no further.

This year, Tim Hortons is offering up what we low-key believe is the most incredible gift for any mom whose love for donuts surpasses that of their children.

Upon first glance, it looks nothing more like a hefty hardbound book that would likely collect dust on a coffee table or sit untouched on a shelf for decades at a time. However, when you open it up, you’ll find six Tim Horton’s donuts inside.

The box will be available on May 8 and 9 when you purchase a six-pack of donuts at U.S. locations in Buffalo, Columbus, and Detroit metropolitan areas. All you have to do is ask for the Donut Disguise Box at the counter or drive-thru.

The release also aims to give back to the hard-hit hospitality industry as bars and restaurants start to reopen.

The six cocktail ice creams in ‘The Boozy Capsule’ include: 

  • Death & Co.’s Buko Gimlet Coconut water sorbet infused with New York Distilling Company’s Dorothy Parker Gin, Novo Fogo Cachaça, Kalani Coconut Liqueur, lime and pandan

I love a good mystery as much as the next guy, and when you pair it with something as addicting as Sour Patch Kids, there’s no situation where you can come out unsatisfied.

The iconic candy brand has just launched a new mystery flavor that just hit stores this week. Like with many other mystery flavors in consumer packaged goods, the sweet and sour candy youths are devoid of color to not hint at their flavor of origin.

As part of a sweepstakes, Sour Patch Kids will reveal the mystery flavor this August, and one lucky winner who submits the correct guess to Mystery.SourPatchKids.com will win $50,000.

Gonna have to get my hands on a bag or two — maybe a whole case.

Powerade Teams Up With The Maker of Otter Pops

90’s kids are sure to recognize Otter Pops as a nostalgic, cold treat that you would eat during hot summers to cool down. The company who makes them, Jel Sert, is still going strong, and just teamed up with Coca-Cola brand Powerade to make a more hydrating version of those frozen treats.

Called Powerade Sports Freezer Bars, this take on the Otter Pop is being targeted towards athletes and those looking to stay hydrated nationwide.

Each of the Powerade “Otter Pops” contains Powerade’s ION4 electrolyte solution, which is packed with minerals like sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Many of these are known to be lost during sweat, so having them in something you consume to stay hydrated helps recover those nutrients.

There’s also a few B Vitamins present in these frozen bars, including Vitamins B3, B6, and B12.

Jel Serts’ partnership with Powerade is now available in stores nationwide, and comes in recyclable packaging.
