16 Unique Coffee Mugs You Need In Your Mornings

The best part of waking up is coffee. Maybe not any coffee, and probably not Folgers, but this nectar of the gods is the life force for many of us. Why bother throwing such an important beverage into a boring mug? We brewed up a few mugs to fix that.

1. Lego My Coffee

ScreenCap1

Because Lego’s are the foundation of any nutritious breakfast.

2. Taste The Rainbow

SC1

Drink coffee and poke your enemies eyes out. Plus rainbows. So, basically all your favorite things.

3. Pipe Dreams

SC2

Perfect for mushroom tea.

4. Schroedinger’s Coffee

SC3

The only problem is that the coffee is both cold and hot until you sip it…

5. Who Needs A Plastic Surgeon?

SC4

My other nose is a fucking disaster.

6. C Is For Coffee

SC5

Addictive behavior is hilarious…

7. The Call of Coffee

SC7

Cthulhu Coffee: Perfect for kicking your morning into beast mode.

8. Put Your Donuts Where Your Mouth Is

SC8

Because 8 AM is simply too early to talk your way into a sexual harassment suit.

9. Flush Once For Caffeine

SC9

Get it? Cause I have a potty mouth? And everything else about me is horrible.

10. Quali-tea

SC10

 

Mostly confusing, because this is a coffee mug with a tea pun on it. And vestigial arms.

11. The Sunday Morning Mug

A classy way of saying what we could already smell coming out of your pores, Linda.

12. Early Morning Accomplishment

SC92

Wanted a medal, got a mug :\

13. All The Rage

SC93

He’ll probably be really angry when he actually tries to crumple it.

14. Emotional Little Sith

I’m guessing you take it… dark?

15. I Can See Clearly Now

Edible Chocolate Lego Bricks Designed by Akihiro Mizuuchi

Chocolate Lego

Japanese designer Akihiro Mizuuchi was able to make the ultimate childhood toy — LEGO — even better by turning them into chocolate. Oh, yes.

Sure there have already been measly attempts at creating edible Lego, like those hard candy versions you can find at the corner store. But Mizuuchi’s chocolate variety makes for an even tastier building block.

Chocolate Lego

Although chocolate might melt fairly easily, it seems as though the choco-LEGO still fit together like the standard versions. Still, worst case scenario if they do get messy?  You’d have a pile of chocolate waiting to be eaten. Man, that would stink.

Lego Shot Glasses Worth Stubbing Your Foot For

lego1

There’s a reason they give Legos to children, and not drunken adults. Sure, both are highly irresponsible and likely to lose the tiny, colorful building blocks, or try to eat them, or use them in any fashion other than the recommended play. But at least children are resilient. If they hurt themselves stepping barefoot on a Lego, they’ll be able to bounce back. If a drunken adult does it, well, have you ever wondered what it might feel like to be hungover in your head and your foot?

Not like that’ll stop us from using these Lego shot glasses though. New from Think Geek, these Build-On Brick Shot Glasses are perfectly compatible with regular Lego pieces, allowing kidults everywhere to indulge in as much Lego-themed debauchery as they please. (Think: sticking little Lego men on the side of the glass or trying to build a whole city in under an hour.) Especially crafty drinkers might even attempt to build flat Lego slippers to guard against the inevitable plastic shrapnel that’ll wind up in their carpets the next morning. For everyone else, it was nice knowing your feet?

A Kit Kat x Lego Set You Can Actually Break Apart

legokitkat1

Kit Kat, current kingpins of the catchy candy commercial scene, have just given us a new reason to play with our food — a Kit Kat-inspired Lego playset, featuring authentic details from the actual candy.

According to Lego blog The Brick Fan, the Kit Kat team designed the set during one of their “occupational breaks.” Dubbed #LegoKITKAT, the concept comes complete with a bright red, international Kit Kat packaging outer “wrapper,” four layered “chocolate wafer” sticks, and a set number (27325). Judging by the promotional images, you could also use the set to create a Kit Kat bald eagle, Kit Kat tyrannosaurus, and a Kit Kat fighter plane.

Unfortunately, the set is just a mock-up for now, but that’s no reason we shouldn’t all try to recreate the thing ourselves. Break Time, Any Time.

Here’s What A Bowl of Lego Ramen Soup Looks Like

Winter really is the most wonderful time of the year for this food blogger; not because of the parties for hosting, nor marshmallows for roasting, nor the caroling out in the snow (as if we ever get snow down in Southern California). No, winter means it’s the perfect time to enjoy a nice piping-hot bowl of soul-soothing ramen noodle soup. Of course, nobody is more aware of that fact than the nation of Japan, where the University of Tokyo has offered up this creative iteration of one of the nation’s most celebrated ramen establishments using Legos.

The display was part of the school’s 63rd Komaba Festival which hosts more than 100,000 people and is one of Tokyo’s largest festivals. The exhibition piece was inspired by Ramen Jiro, a tokyo-based ramen shop that is renown throughout the country and has even made The Guardian’s 50 Best Things to Eat in the World. The ramen shop is known for its thick and hearty pork bone, or tonkotsu broth piled high with a mountain of green onions, beansprouts, cabbage and pork belly slices, or chashu. That might explain why this particular Lego bowl looks like someone sneezed a random assortment of building blocks on top of it. Here’s a glimpse of what the real deal looks like:
