Yes, the Frozen train is still riding strong in Japan, where Disney Tokyo has just concocted a line of character-themed cocktails to quench guests at its Disney Ambassador and Tokyo Disneyland Hotels.
Inspired by main characters Elsa, Anna, and Olaf, the sweet drinks are available starting today until August 31 at select locations at both hotels. According to Rocket News, the Olaf is a kind of piña colada made from fresh pineapple and pineapple, passionfruit, and coconut syrups; the pink Anna offers peach nectar, strawberry syrup, blue syrup, blueberry sauce, and Calpis water. Presumably the Elsa won’t require you to weather a snowstorm or visit a bunch of talking rock trolls, but it does feature a cool blue mix of grapefruit juice, lemon juice, blue syrup, and gum syrup.
One little caveat: these darlings are non-alcoholic, meaning they won’t help you through another charming rendition of “Do You Wanna Build A — NO FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE STOP SINGING ABOUT THIS MOTHEREFFING — Snowman?” from any nearby five year olds. But at least they’re cute?
Except Olaf, who looks a little as if Elsa’s snow magic decided to wear off, leaving him to slowly melt and die after jumping inside a Hurricane glass.

Comedian Nick Swardson has a funny bit where he says that funerals should be a good time since they’re technically your last party on earth, ever. Multimedia artist Olaf Breuning must agree with him since he designed these eccentric coffins and commissioned Ghanaian casket makers to create them (kooky corpse boxes are the norm in Ghana).
The caskets are shaped like a popsicle, a snowman and a chocolate bar, and are made even weirder with their anthropomorphic features. Crazed cartoon faces and enthusiastic thumbs ups (handles for the pallbearers?) seem to say,”Yeah dude, lower me into the ground! Let’s get this party started!”
Famous for his infantile sculptures, playful installations and laconic lyricism, Breuning’s art is absurdist and humorous, like the art equivalent of Arrested Development. Art with a perpetual punchline, you could say. And what’s a better punchline to the punchline of all punchlines — death — than spending eternity in a giant melting popsicle?
Meatballs made of ground chuck, eggs, and breadcrumbs, held together with toothpicks and kabob sticks. Three humongous balls form the silhouette of the snowman, with the entire figure decorated with Parmesan cheese snow, a bacon scarf, hot dog arms and a top had and nose made out of Velveeta cheese. Can’t forget the tomato eyes and buttons. Damn Nick, good move. Looks even more delicious in sandwich form!
Got kids running around your legs during the holidays? Hell, do you have grownups running around your legs during the holidays? Shut them up with these dope new cookies from the dough boy himself, some holiday inspired sugar cookies from snowmen to Christmas trees. For roughly $2.50, you can get a can of these, 24 pre-cut cookies, throw em on a sheet, throw them in the oven, and get your inner-diabetic on (for those that are diabetic, don’t even worry…sugar doesn’t even taste that good).
