Ice Cream Parlor Will Serve You Every Scoop They Have On A Single MASSIVE Platter

One of the biggest conundrums you can come across in an ice cream parlor is not knowing which flavor you want to try. Your eyes dart from flavor to flavor, with the veritable cast of 12 Angry Men deliberating in your head the final scoop verdict.

What if you didn’t have to choose?

Milkjam Creamery, in Minneapolis, MN, takes the struggle out of your ice cream-based decision dilemma by offering a platter that serves every single scoop. Yes, every flavor offered at the ice cream parlor will be served to you on what Milkjam aptly named the “All of Them” platter.

The platter includes notable flavors like Thai Tea, Turkish Coffee Toffee, Passionfruit Lychee Swirl, Hibiscus Lemonade, Peanut Butter Banana, and Oreo Peanut Butter. A large chunk of the flavor offerings are even vegan, for those unable to dabble in dairy.

For anyone who loves to indulge their sweet tooth, it doesn’t get any sweeter than this.

You can find the All of Them Sundae platter at Milkjam Creamery, as part of their permanent menu. Flavors are subject to change seasonally.

McDonald’s Canada Just Entered The Audio Market With ‘The McBoombox’

We can all recall the joyous feeling of getting a new toy inside of our Happy Meal at McDonald’s. While most of us have outgrown the Happy Meal stage, Canada’s Waterloo University and McDonald’s Canada just released an adult toy that will have music fans singing high praise.

In celebration of the McFlurry 22-year anniversary — which was originally created in Canada — McDonald’s Canada, the University of Waterloo’s Audio Research Group along with the Toronto-based industrial design group Stacklab, created a limited time product, that might actually be the first of its kind.

The McDonald’s McBoombox is a recyclable drink tray that’s been outfitted with some custom designed “cones” that help create a full, more robust sound. The cones are a 10-side shaped polygon, enabling the 100 percent cardboard speakers to send sound out audio at a decibel level of 70.4, according to It’sNiceThat.com.

To put 70.4 dB into perspective, an ordinary iPod with headphones can reach 100-115 dB, with the volume at 50 percent. So, it might not blow your eardrums, and you might not be able to feel the bass in your chest, but you’ll be able to hear some tunes at a reasonable volume.

However, the McBoombox was produced in very limited quantities, according to Mashable. For the lucky ones, who caught the slim five-hour window of opportunity, McDonald’s gave the McBoombox away on July 28 from 2:00-7:00 pm. For everyone in the U.S. that wasn’t able to cop this limited edition product — there’s always eBay. So, there’s still a chance for all you music loving McDonald’s heads out there.

GoPlate Lets You Hold a Party in the Palm of Your Hand, Literally

Here’s a familiar summertime scenario: after waiting a hot second in the buffet line, you’ve finally gotten your food and your drink and are ready to get your grub on when you realize there are no empty tables around. You could try to find a ledge somewhere, or maybe sit on the floor, but heavens, you’re not an animal.

Luckily for you, there’s the GoPlate. Probably more “tray” than “plate,” this washable, re-usable plastic contraption rests comfortably atop your drink, leaving you a free hand for munching, dancing or schmoozing. As an added bonus, GoPlate comes in seven different colors including white, “rich red,” blue, black, orange, yellow and clear, making it the perfect accessory for almost any chromatically-themed party—taste the rainbow, indeed.

And all right, so maybe it won’t let you eat and drink at the same time as the promotional images seem to suggest (unless maybe you put a straw in there), but it will make carrying everything from the kitchen to the backyard a heck of a lot easier. Score.

GoPlate comes in packs of 10, 21 or 42 and pricing depends on color and quantity, the cheapest being 10 “clears” for $14.98.
