How it's Made: Molded Chocolate and Milk

Much better to be a cow in a milkhouse than a slaughterhouse. The cow massager is a cute idea.

Questionable Root Beer Float Invention

This seems like a pretty ghetto contraption to me and the website leaves me with a lot of questions: What happens after you screw on "The Fizz Cup?" When you squeeze the bottle, do you get a perfect ratio of ice cream/soda? Isn't it top heavy? Can you set it down on a table without it falling over? Why does their background image look more like orange bang with ice than root beer float froth?

Make Tea with Five Thousand Drops of Water

Another quirky product from Fred.

From Fred's website:
Do you want to measure stuff the old-fashioned way or would you
prefer to view your measurements in a surprising new light? Fred
says, go for it - next time you make brownies, use a tyrannosaur’s
brain of flour, or sugar equal to the water in a cumulus cloud the size
of the bus. Equal Measure is half measuring cup, half laboratory beaker,
and all fun. And don’t worry, we included ounces, milliliters, and cups on the scale too! 2 1/2-cup capacity, heat-resistant, dishwasher-safe
borosilicate glass, individually gift-boxed.
