Probably the best part of any breakfast cereal experience is the second act where you gulp down the cereal-flavored milk that’s been brewing for the entire meal. 

Bottling the magic of the breakfast table, Nestle Sensations is launching Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cinnamilk to be sold at grocery retailers. 

The milk blends cinnamon sugar with hints of toasted cereal to capture the notes that can only be found after a hearty bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. 

Joining the Cinnamon Toast Crunch milk will be Nesquik Dark Chocolate Whole Milk and Protein Power Strawberry Milk

You can find the new CTC-flavored milk in grocery stores, convenience stores, and mass retailers nationwide this January. Imagine adding this to Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. The resulting milk would be next-level.

Pabst Blue Ribbon has announced a new venture with the creation of its Pabst Labs cannabis company. With it comes a brand new cannabis-infused beverage to kick off the brand. 

Pabst Labs is launching a Cannabis-Infused Non-Alcoholic Selzer with a bit of lemon. 

While cannabis-infused drinks have become popular over the years, Pabst joining the fold marks a potential turning point in major growth for THC-infused beverages in the years to come.

The seltzer will be available in 12oz cans that feature 5mg of THC. While the lemon flavor will be the only flavor available at the time of launch, Pabst says other flavors are already in development. 

A test launch of the cans will soon hit select California dispensaries. The beverage can also be purchased directly to Californian residents through Shop.PabstLabs.com.

Cheez-It Wine Box Pairs White Cheddar Crackers With Rosé

Last year, Cheez-It launched a limited-edition Original Cheddar and House Wine Red Wine box that will let you snack on the iconic crackers while pairing it with some box wine. The collaboration sold out in minutes and fans were left eating crackers, and drinking wine in separate containers like veritable chumps.

Those fans need not worry, as the annual pairing is back with a White Cheddar twist.

This year, Cheez-It is launching a White Cheddar & House Wine Rosé box that you can order through Original House Wine. Pairing White Cheddar Cheez-Its (arguably the superior Cheez-It) with House Wine Rosé.

The limited-edition Cheez-It White Cheddar & House Wine Rosé will be available online for $29.99 at OriginalHouseWine.com, starting at 2 p.m. EST on July 23 and will be available while supplies last.

PEEPS Slurpees & PEEPS Lattes Are Now At 7-Eleven

Spring is here and we’re officially in Peeps season, folks. Love them or hate them, with the advent of Spring comes such a hype for these little animal-shaped marshmallows that continues to polarize both classrooms and offices alike. Almost as much as candy corn. Almost.

Leaning into the spirit of Peeps, 7-Eleven just released two new beverage options, both inspired by the prolific, ear-forward marshmallow treat.

The first is a Peeps-flavored Slurpee, which the brand has been teasing since February. This marks the first-ever marshmallow-flavored Slurpee from 7-Eleven (what were they waiting for??). Second, Peeps takes the form of a Peeps Latte that’s offered in the hot beverage dispensing machines.

Those looking for a sweet kick of marshmallow should be sure to give these drinks a taste!

Peeps lovers, you can check out these flavors at your local 7-Eleven throughout the month of April. You can also have them delivered for free through 7Now, 7-Eleven’s delivery service, with the promo code FREE4U.

7-Eleven Officially Adds Jarritos’ Mandarin Flavor As A Big Gulp, The First Time It’s Ever Found Outside The Bottle

Fans of the widely popular Jarritos soda brand will soon be able to have as much of the popular Mandarin flavor as they can chug, thanks to a new partnership with 7-Eleven and Stripes.

For the first time in the history of the beverage, the Mandarin Jarritos soda is venturing outside of the bottle and joining 7-Eleven’s Big Gulp soda fountain lineup.

Over the past summer, 7-Eleven launched a Mandarin-flavored Jarritos Slurpee drink that garnered positive social media reaction like gangbusters. The resulting popularity led to the decision of adding the actual craft soda into the soda fountain lineup. The Mexico-based soft drink company was founded in 1950 and, over the past 70 years, has risen to become one of the most popular soft drinks in the country.

Expect to see the newest Big Gulp flavor rolling out at participating 7-Eleven locations. If successful, we’ll probably see more iconic Jarritos flavors joining its Mandarin flavored comrade not long after.

Costco Is Selling Egg Nog with a 13.9% ABV

Costco isn’t fooling anyone. While the gargantuan $10 pizza and bulk amounts of, well, everything are nice, the chain clearly excels at being the alcohol plug. Where else can you get a 48 pack of beer for $23? Well, nowhere, now that the chain discontinued their beer last fall. Thankfully it seems as if a new contestant has approached the arena— er, warehouse — with the introduction of their new Egg Nog Wine Cocktail.

As with everything at Costco, the drink only comes in one size (absurdly large) and one price (absurdly cheap). The Instagram account @costcobuys, who initially reported the discovery, says that the drink is available at their Costco in 1.5L bottles for only $9.

A post shared by Costco Buys (@costcobuys) on

Nine dollars! Now, granted this isn’t that premium stuff. At the end of the day, this is alcoholic eggnog that comes in a plastic bottle. But still! That’s a lot of… value… for your money.

The one concerning part of this is that, according to the label, it’s a “wine cocktail.” Usually, eggnog is paired with a dark liquor, like rum or brandy — never wine. 

This reddit thread throws a couple suggestions out, namely that this might be the result of state alcohol sales and taxes laws. From prior experience, and some preliminary reporting, this could be true. The new bottle seems to be a rebrand of the eggnog liqueur that Costco has sold for years, as the imaging, labeling, and wording of the bottle all remain the same. The only things that have changed is the switch to “wine cocktail” and a minor reduction in alcohol percentage, as the new one comes in at 13.9%.

Whatever the recipe may actually be, Costco is trying to make alcoholic eggnog easy, and holiday parties that much more palatable. Cheers to that.
