People love candy: The average American spends $84 on and consumes about 23.9 pounds of the sweet stuff each year. With all that money and attention, you'd think it would be hard for a candy product to fail. Not true. Many candy products come and go without much notice. Here are 10 variations of popular candies that many people don't realize ever existed.
Like it or not, fall is here, (pretty much, let's not get technical about it, okay?). We all know what that means -- hot apple cider, digging out your sweaters from the back of the closet, and people going on and on about how much they love pumpkin spice lattes.
A night out at a restaurant offers the perfect break from the rigors of cooking and cleaning at home. Who doesn't love going out for a nice meal? The waitstaff is who, especially when you prove to be a pain in the butt.
The great thing about art is that we can express ourselves in endless ways. Feeling inspired by Grumpy Cat? Paint a detailed portrait of Tardar Sauce-- we won't judge. Or maybe 'Star Wars' gets you all jazzed. Heck, make a Lego scene to reflect those feelings! It's all fun in our books, and we're especially fans of the offbeat type of art, like that of the banana variety.
When we think of doughnuts, flavors such as sugar, jelly or custard come to mind. If we were to be particularly adventurous, we might venture into the realm of sprinkles or maybe even coconut. The Holy Donut in Portland, Maine, however, has trampled over expectations in their latest item which will be on the menu from this weekend - the lobster doughnut.
The restaurant biz is super competitive, which is why standing out from every other place is a key compenent to success.

This is where creative signs come into play.
We're all entitled to our own opinions, but food is arguably the best part of any holiday. See, eating our way through this sort of celebration is an automatic win-win-- we're happy, our stomach's are happy, everyone's happy.
We've all made mistakes. We've all had to eat a zucchini for lunch. Like, just a zucchini. But some of us are capable of learning from our mistakes. Others...not so much. Admire these awful lunch fails and hope that it is never you. Never again.
Hey, how was that pre-made $7 wrap from Starbucks? It probably tasted great with that snack-sized bag of Fritos, right? Here are 17 pictures taken by people who somehow have the time to actually care about what they eat for lunch. Look at them, think back to that Cup o' Noodles, and cry and cry.
Raise your hand if you love summer. We're assuming there was just a collective "aww yeah!" among you, because seriously-- who doesn't enjoy lemonade and Slip N' Slides and hanging your head out the window? But we can't forget the tastiest way to celebrate the season-- ice cream. And lots of it.
