Nintendo Introduces New Video Game Flavors For Yogurtland

Nintendo-Yogurt-02

Probably the only thing that pairs nicely with the bright, vibrant, colors of Nintendo games are desserts that are just as colorful. Yogurt, perhaps. The video game company partnered with Yogurtland to create some awesome new flavors for both yogurt lovers and gamers alike.

New flavors include: Mario’s Chocolate Gelato, Luigi’s White Chocolate Pistachio, Toad’s Rocky Road and Bowser’s Dragon Berry Tart.

Nintendo-Yogurt-03

The popular Yogurt chain has also added some Nintendo-themed toppings to accompany the frozen dessert. You get spooky Boos and Super Stars as tiny little marshmallows.

Nintendo-Yogurt-01

Yogurtland is also doing a #GameOn contest where you can win a Nintendo Wii U, a year’s worth of Yogurtland and other Nintendo games each week. You just have to show up, buy some yogurt and follow the steps at the register to enter.

The promotion will be available from July 1 through Sept. 8.

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

il_570xN.903505638_8i78

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

SBSW7732lg

I’m guessing you take it… dark?

15. I Can See Clearly Now

e89a_camera_lens_mug_desk

The only time it’s acceptable for your lens to be steamy.

16.  Snooze Button Managed

Who needs a wand when you have coffee?

Baking Wizard Turns Your Childhood Memories Into Delicious Donuts

pop_culture_donuts_1

This is an awesome collection of pop culture donuts by apparent donut whisperer Timmy Hanno. He’s got donuts inspired by characters from movies, cartoons, TV shows, and video games. I would eat them all. Not in one sitting of course, because that is physically impossible. But dammit if I wouldn’t try. I would, is the thing.

15145098580_93f322dd6b_k

We wish our mom was this cool. Singapore based stay-at-home mother, Li Ming, has been whipping up charabens, or character bentos, since 2011. She started packing these adorable lunches as a way to cheer up her older son when he started elementary school. Cue the “awws”.

Ming draws her lunch inspiration from video games, books, and even movies. Besides character bentos, she also makes character based dishes such as Totoro Cream Puffs, Bear Pizza, or even the Spam Pig Pita as seen below.

Almost to adorable to nom on, these insanely darling dishes can be made at home with Ming’s tutorials found on her website, Bento Monsters. Peep more of Ming’s cute creations below.

Baker Decorates Each Cookie by Hand, Resulting in Edible Masterpieces

Reddit-Cookie-Turtles

Whenever I see someone create art on a canvas of baked goods, I have to take a second and admire it. It’s actually incredibly difficult to draw something on a cake or a cookie, whether it’s simply lettering or a picture of Batman. At least from my experience. That being said, a baker recently posted some of her beautiful cookie designs on Reddit.

What’s special about them is that she goes out of her way to freehand each drawing from scratch, instead of retracing a previous piece of work. She even includes a few photos detailing her tedious process of sketching to icing each cookie.

Take a look below at some of the most gorgeous cookie art I’ve even seen.

MAMA MIA: Mario Kart 8 Toys Coming to McDonald’s Happy Meals

mario-kart-happy-meal

Rejoice Mario Kart fans: the newest McDonald’s Happy Meal toys just might be cool enough to outweigh the creepy new mascot.

About a month after the May 30 release of Mario Kart 8, McDonald’s will be rolling out a line of fancy new Mario figures riding bikes, go-karts, and hovercrafts (ooh. . . .). The whole gang is here, including Mario, Luigi, DK, Yoshi, Bowser, Toad, and even Princess Peach.

For girls (because Peach isn’t feminine enough apparently?), there are also Ty Teenie Beanie Boos, mini versions of Ty’s iconic Beanie Babies that, despite their giant anime eyes, will never be as precious as my Princess Diana bear.

Based on promotional images, it’s hard to tell if the go-karts actually go. but according to Nerdalicious, each toy does come with a kid-sized red Mario visor, which is almost as good.

Mario ‘Beerio’ Kart Might Be The Greatest, Nerdiest Drinking Game Ever

Screen Shot 2013-08-14 at 10.05.27 PM

Now, I’ve seen some pretty epic drinking games but I can only imagine how insane things get when you mix cheap beer with Mario Kart.

Think about it. The game is already hard to play sober. Plus, something changes in people when they play Mario Kart. Your friends are now laughing maniacally as they shoot Bullet Bills and leave a trail of banana peels for you to slip on. Not to mention you have Wario on your ass with Bowser waiting just around the corner to blast that damn spiny shell at you just as you slide into first place. But to play this seemingly innocent racing game while drunk off your ass? Nope. Kiss Rainbow Road goodbye.

The rules are simple:

1) Dust off your N64 and find your Mario Kart 64 cartridge. Yes kids, in the old days we had to play our video games on cartridges, none of that fancy CD ish.

2) Get some beer. Make sure it’s something you like because you’ll be spending some quality time with it.

3) Grab some pals and start up the game. Once you’ve all picked your characters and course, it’s time to get down to business.

Check out the run down below:

Screen Shot 2013-08-14 at 10.06.03 PM

Make sure you play this with some friends though, because playing Beerio Kart solo is basically geeky alcoholism.

Are you the kind of person that busts out the old Nintendo on a Friday night and pops in some Super Mario Bros. 2 or Earthbound? Do you appreciate the aesthetics of 8-bit designs? Then maybe this Donkey Kong Nespresso Wall Mount is just the thing for you!

Created by Hologramer, this work of art was inspired by the classic Donkey Kong game. CapsuleKong is a unique wall-mount that rolls out your morning Nespresso capsules in Nintendo fashion. The design of the mount captures the nostalgia of the original game level with beautifully carved characters.
