Whole Foods Talking Pineapple Armadillo

armadillo0.jpg HAPPY EARTH DAY! (And the start of Earthling Month!) To celebrate this crazy box just arrived… and upon opening it smelled like… lasered cardboard! (Yes, we’re VERY accustomed to that distinct scent lately.) And inside was Whole Foods’ “PINEAPPLE Ambassador of the Earthlings” which resembles an armadillo… and it TALKS. Seriously. This fun press kit to celebrate Earth Month of April is all about what Whole Foods is doing for the month of April - “transforming itself into a hub for Earthlings — or humans inspired by the earth’s beauty and bounty — to meet up, share ideas and celebrate our planet online and in stores.” You can learn more about what they’re up to at EarthlingMonth.com, but for now, back to this crazy box - which is the “official vessel of the earthling ambassador”… I love that their creature is actually built from food-safe ceramic and recycled electronics, the packaging is reused cardboard, and the impact from chipping has been offset with verified emission reductions purchased from Renewable Choice Energy… and it goes without saying that the pineapple can be consumed… in fact the TALKING ambassador commands you to “Eat Me!” as you’ll see in the video on the next page! So, if you’re ready to see the full unbox and stab the ambassador parts into the pineapple and hear him talk, head to the next page!

p.s. Just updated the post with a peek INSIDE the electronic guts… and he has a HEART!

Laser Challenge #6: Veg Garden Guys

gardenguys3.jpg This post is part of the NOTlabs Laser Challenge: The ground rules are: Shawn and I are alternating days with executing and sharing a Laser Cutter involved experiment! And most importantly - we’re supposed to have fun, explore ideas, and it’s less about a fully formed product/concept at the end of the day, but more about seeing where the experiment takes us!

Weekends are tougher - especially with guests! But it also means more people to help… or pose! So here’s my Laser Challenge #6 from last night - Vegetable Garden Guys! It’s that perfect time of year to get our vege garden going again, but i tend to forget what went where and it’s a surprise when it all pops up… so i rounded the guys up to pose against the white wall (as if holding massive vegetables) to turn them into wooden garden markers. Of course a few things went wrong for this speed project ~ it was a learning experience for us to see what built in settings for engraving from photographic images the laser cutter hard (total fail, learning about rasterizing/engraving on the side now) - then i decided to just print them out on paper to stick on to the guys - and printer started running out of ink. But the little guys are still pretty fun, and i’ll definitely be revisiting them for a round 2! Take a peek at fun on the next page ~ romanesco broccoli seeds started and cucumbers, bush beans, honeydew, and lettuce on the way!

p.s. If you have ideas, or want some laser cutting done, or want to play with us… feel free to use the contact form or leave a comment! And if you’re curious about the laser cutter we’re using, here’s the unboxing.

Mochicream Mochido Donuts

mochido1.jpg When grabbing late lunch at the Mitsuwa in Torrance, i couldn’t help pausing by the J.Sweets case of Mochicream’s rainbow of mochis… but more curious, the donuts… that didn’t quite look like donuts… they were a bit glossy, a bit overly precisely placed, and we were intrigued… Turns out these “donuts” are Mochidos! Mochi donuts! They have a coating on a ring of mochi filled with cream/sauce depending on the flavor! So naturally we couldn’t resist trying some… and they are delicious! And beautifully gift boxed! Take a peek at the next page…

Eyescream

eyescream0.jpg Been dreaming about going to Barcelona to get Eyescream since i first saw it on Moco Loco last night. Amazing new conceptual twist on all the taiwanese shaved ice cream shops popping up all over… stunningly playful branding… and to turn the less than attractive treat into something more fun, they keep the toppings separate, and eyes! (Only way they could make it better is to have edible googly eyes!) Fantastic design by Estudio m Barcelona (Merche Alcalá, Marion Dönneweg). Take a peek at the incredible creatures, branding, and deliciousness on the next page.

p.s. also check them out on facebook and yelp.

Soda & Swine + Polite Provisions

swinesoda00.jpg A spontaneous road trip came up yesterday which landed me at the brand new Soda & Swine is a meatball and soda spot and its alcoholic pharmacy of a sister, Polite Provisions that just popped up in Normal Heights in San Diego… being unexpected, this post is a cell phone peek into our experiences… lots of fun branding and signage… and it’s an interesting set up. You can only order meatballs and soda and soft serve and pie at Soda & Swine, but you can have it brought over to you at Polite Provisions… you can order cocktails, punch bowls, beer cocktails, cocktails on tap, wine, etc at Polite Provisions, but you can’t bring them to Soda & Swine. To go between the two - you go to the hallway of the bathrooms in Polite Provisions and through the doorway to pop out behind the fireplace in Soda & Swine, which is actually in a roofless area that feels like you’re in between buildings (just look up to notice the stars and moon shining brightly down on you amongst the heatlamps)…

Interesting set up - cute spaces - tucked away in a quickly hipsterifying Normal Heights… it’s surrounded by bus stops, liquor store, dollar store and across from the Air Conditioned Lounge. And i can’t help but wonder if meatballs are the new sausage… Soda & Swine lets you pick the meatball style (smashed in a slider, 3 in a sub, on pasta, or 3 a la carte) then the flavor, cheese, and sauce. You must try the Smoked Pork, it’s definitely the best of the lot. Also the brussel sprouts with bacon and broccolini are delicious… apricot soft serve tasted like dried apricots and cream blended together… and the Caribbean Vacation on tap and Scottish Breakfast were lovely. If you’re ready - take a peek at the details on the next page!

p.s. There seems to be a dispute as to what this area counts as - is it Normal Heights? Between Heights? North Park? Regardless - you’ll find these two at 30th and Adams!

The Marshmallow Apothecary

robin0.jpg Here’s the latest from London-based editor and resident zoologist, Justine Aw!

Last night, we braved the snow to cure our ailments with a round up medicinal marshmallows at The Robin Collective’s brand new pop-up cafe in the heart of London’s Carnaby Street. Visitors will have the chance to have their love lives analysed, diagnosed and medicated with fluffy, pillowy, deliciously flavored marshmallows. We were thrilled to get a sneak peek at the project, as we fell in love with medicinal Marshmallows as soon as we first encountered them at the 2011 Experimental Food Society exhibition. More photos of the pop-up shop on the next page!

The Happy Egg Co.

happyegg1.jpg Impulse supermarket packaging buy… The Happy Egg Co. eggs definitely jump off the shelf at you with their adorable branding and packaging… the hard part was debating whether they are worth the price compared to the ones they are surrounded by. But i was intrigued enough to at least try them… and the chicken egg character is adorable ~ they really take the happy free range chicken thing all the way! And the packaging has great details, from the vibrant yellow, colorful imagery, and even the logo and chicken-egg molded into the carton itself, but the best part is the way the carton opens with such a satisfying feeling that sounds/feels like it reseals each time its closed. Excessive? Possibly. Necessary? Probably not. Noteworthy design details and branding for eggs? Definitely. They are also on just about every social media platform… fun website, twitter, facebook, youtube, pinterest, google+… and have an iphone app game! Check out all the details on the next page…

The surprise 2013 packages that arrived have put a smile on my face with the fun “The future ain’t what it used to be” bumper sticker and i cant stop grinning about how DELICIOUS the Good Mix with Valerie Confections is… almonds, pumpkin seeds, light brown sugar, bittersweet chocolate, honey, cocoa powder, vanilla paste, sea salt, canola oil, cocoa nibs = ridiculously deliciousness. It’s addicting. In fact it’s terribly difficult to put it down while writing this! Take a peek on the next page for all the details…
