…It’s Things Thursday: Miracle Berry Fruit Tablets?

Miracle Berry Fruit Tablets

The Miracle Fruit (AKA the Miracle Berry) is a food that makes other sour and bitter foods taste sweet.

Seriously!

By bonding the protein miraculin to your taste buds (or something like that; science isn’t too sure) the Miracle Berry Fruit Tablets can change the way foods taste for up to an hour.

Though the obvious test is to grab a lemon and chomp away like some sort of crazed mad man, another option is to order a pack of the tablets, gather a bunch of strong tasting foods, invite some friends over and host a “flavor tripping” party.

Whatever you decide to do with them, a pack of 20 servings will set you back just $20 from ThinkGeek, so order a set and start tripping today!

…Drink terminology can be tough?

Bar DrinksEver go to a bar and wonder what the words “neat”, “straight up”, “on the rocks” or “with a twist” mean?

If you have, then you’re in luck, because Jeffrey Morgenthaler is here to help you sort them out. (And apparently they’re confusing for both sides of the bar, so don’t feel bad.)

The short version is as follows:

    Neat: Right out of the bottle.
    Up: Chilled, and served in a cocktail glass.
    Straight Up: Usually means “neat”, but check first.
    Twist: A thin strip of citrus peel. Default is lemon.

But for the long version with a full explanation, you’ll just have to visit the site.

…It’s TGI Friday: Lemonade?

LemonadeYou know what they say about life and lemons…

This weekend, as the temperatures continue to rise, and you’re suddenly well aware of the fact that it is summer outside after all, grab a glass, add some lemons, pour on some sugar, finish it off with a splash of water, and make your own lemonade.

You don’t need to stick to the classics though, as Real Simple has put together some fantastic recipes for remade lemonades.

Featuring the Ginger Zinger, Tropical and Farmers’ Lemonades, and the Lemon-Mint Cooler, it’s the perfect compliment to that day of well-deserved relaxation that you’ve been planning for weeks now.

…Reeboks smell like Kool-Aid?

Reebok Kool-Aid

Reebok/Kool-Aid kicks aren’t exactly groundbreaking, since the shoe game is known to bring some unique partnerships together, but what is interesting is that not only do these shoes look like their respective Kool-Aid flavors, they smell like them too thanks to scented sock liners.

Run one includes cherry, strawberry and grape, and more are planned (orange, lemon and lime) if the scented shoe takes off like Reebok surely hopes it will.

What’s your flavor?
