waffles and mochi trailer

Come for the delicious food shots, stay for Jack Black happily shouting, “Waffles! Mochi!” Waffles + Mochi has a hell of a pitch — Michelle Obama and a couple of puppets host a children’s cooking show — but despite the Mad Libs effect of that sentence, the new Netflix unscripted series looks like an utter delight. Watch the Waffles + Mochi trailer below.

The Mandalorian Macarons

Last week’s episode of The Mandalorian gave us the latest adorable Baby Yoda scene. We watched the Child admire a pack of blue macarons that a kid was eating, and when they rudely wouldn’t acquiesce to The Child’s desire for one, he rightfully used his Force abilities to snatch them. He even brought them back to the Razor Crest for a space snack (though he ended up throwing them up all over himself). Now The Mandalorian macarons can be yours, but you’re not going to like how much they cost. Read More »

Pickle Rick Miracle Seltzer

It’s been over three years since Rick and Morty introduced us to Pickle Rick, the little brined version of the brilliant but demented Rick Sanchez. After turning himself into a pickle in an attempt to avoid going to family therapy, Pickle Rick became a pop culture sensation, and now there are t-shirts, action figures, plushes, and even Pringles inspired by the pickled scientist. Now the love for Pickle Rick is being extended to seltzer water, thanks to a collaboration between Adult Swim and Miracle Seltzer. Read More »

Elf Monopoly

Right now, all eyes are on Jon Favreau‘s work on the Star Wars series The Mandalorian, but as we get closer to the holidays, fans will be digging into the director’s modern holiday classic Elf. The movie is played endlessly during the Christmas season, and this year you can take your love of Will Ferrell as Buddy the Elf to the next level.

This year, fans will be able to play a special Elf version of the classic board game Monopoly, featuring familiar locations and settings from the film. Plus, while you’re arguing about how much money you own for landing on whatever the Elf equivalent of Boardwalk will be, you’ll be able to munch on some Elf breakfast cereal from General Mills.

Rick and Morty Pringles

Though it seems a lifetime ago in the exhausting nightmare that is 2020, earlier this year, Pringles unveiled a special Pickle Rick flavor of their potato chips inspired by an episode of Rick and Morty. Released in a specially designed can that looks like Rick Sanchez after he turns himself into a pickle, the chips were released just in time for the Super Bowl back in February. But this year, Pringles isn’t waiting for a big game to expand the Rick and Morty Pringles collection with two new flavors in collectible cans. Read More »

Concessions To Go

You most likely can’t go to the movies right now. But you can spend a ridiculous amount of money on movie snacks – provided you’re somewhere near Hollywood. The El Capitan Theatre, the restored movie palace on Hollywood Blvd. owned by Disney, is selling concession bundles for your “movie night at home,” or if you just want to go home and eat a bunch of movie theater food, alone in the dark with all the curtains drawn so no one can see what you’re doing. No judgment here – you do you.

Mondo SDCC 2020 Exclusives

San Diego Comic-Con is nearly upon us, albeit in the form of a virtual convention dubbed Comic-Con at Home. There won’t be a show floor for fans to pick up merchandise from their favorite vendor booths, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to fight against hordes of fans trying to get their hands on the latest exclusive collectibles created just for Comic-Con. In fact, we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek at some of the upcoming offerings from Mondo.

This year, Mondo is expanding their ever-growing line of collectible Tiki Mugs. Since these are Comic-Con exclusives, it only makes sense that Marvel Comics characters are getting the Tiki Mug treatment. Venom, Thanos and MODOK are all getting special glaze color variant Tiki Mugs. But that’s not all, because Mondo is also releasing the latest figure in their Masters of the Universe MOTUbi line, with Mer-Man joining the collection. Check out some Mondo 2020 Comic-Con exclusives below. Read More »

The Mandalorian Cereal

When Baby Yoda got punched by a Scout Trooper in the first season finale of the Star Wars series The Mandalorian, fans went crazy. The internet basically called for the head of Jason Sudeikis, who played the violating Imperial trooper, even though he apparently forgot about the scene until he started trending on Twitter because of it. But how will they treat themselves so harshly when they’re presented with the opportunity to eat Baby Yoda in the form of tiny marshmallows in The Mandalorian cereal? Read More »
