Forget romantic, candlelit dinners, bouquets of roses and pink stuffed animals. Everyone knows that Valentine’s Day is really all about the candy.

Luckily, M&M’s understands the importance of surrounding oneself with sweets on February 14.

White Strawberry Shortcake — which features holiday-appropriate white, pink and creme colored shells and promises a “light, Starburst-like Strawberry sweetness,” according to The Impulsive Buy — is technically meant to be one of the company’s limited-edition Easter flavors, but it already available on shelves at Targets everywhere.

Don’t worry, you’re not the only one experiencing an overwhelming feeling of love for M&M’s right now.

White Strawberry Shortcake is the latest in a long line of seasonal flavors that M&M’s has released, including white peppermintpecan pie, and the queen of fall foods pumpkin spice latte.

But that’s not all: Listings on eBay have also promised a second Valentine’s Day flavor, Strawberry Chocolate, which will be available exclusively at Walmart.

So this February, instead of spending your entire paycheck on dinner and champagne, give your Valentine the gift they’re really hoping for: all of the M&M’s they can eat.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Oh good. This gives me an excuse to finally throw away the bag of Pumpkin Spice Latte M&M’s that my coworkers wouldn’t touch. Hope these fare better.

For the curious soul, we reviewed all the new seasonal M&M’s including Strawberry, White Strawberry Shortcake, and Cherry! We enjoyed all three, too… http://junkbanter.com/mms/

The way I see it, the gaming scene pretty much divides into PC gaming and console gaming. PC games take you away from your real life miseries and give you complete peace of mind. Not only, the traditional games but the table games have also been fascinating mankind for years on end.
