Today is National Candy Corn Day
Reese’s Made A Halloween Candy-Swapping Vending Machine
Everyone knows Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are the best Halloween candy and now the candy maker is making it easier for folks to get more of their favorite treats. This Halloween there will be an actual Reese’s vending machine ready to dispense thousands of peanut butter cups to kids of all ages. And to get one, you just have to trade in the candy you don’t want to swap for a Reese’s cup.
Reese’s told Delish that according to a recent survey, “90% of Americans say that they have traded or wish they could have traded their unwanted candy on Halloween,” and that four of five would have wanted to trade that other candy for a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. So they made a vending machine that’ll do it for us.
Sadly, there’s only one and this amazing invention will be in New York City on Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. on 5th Avenue between Washington Square North and East 8th Street. The machine will be exchanging up to 10,000 cups, but you’d better get there early, since everyone else knows this is the best Halloween candy, too.
- And while we adore Reese’s for this peanut butter cup vending machine, the candy company recently announced something a little less popular with fans. This spring, Reese’s plans to release a new candy called Reese’s Thins, which will be about 40% thinner than the original. They think it’ll appeal to those who want something sweet with “more permissibility,” but we’re happy with our big, fat old school peanut butter cups.
Can an iPhone User and Android User Find Love?
iPhone users are generally happier, more extroverted, more adventurous, and make more money than Android users, according to new research. A study of 1,000 iPhone owners and 1,000 Android owners found that whether you prefer an iPhone or Android may say a lot about your personality — and even your spending habits. The survey, by Slickdeals, pitted the cellphone giants against each other and found iPhone users will shell out $117 on average every month on clothes — nearly double what an Android user will spend ($62). The same goes for makeup and beauty products, with the iPhone crowd spending $83 every month on average on such products, double what Android users spend ($40).
- Are you an iPhone lover but you’re in a relationship with an Android lover? Are you the definition of “Opposites Attract”?
Make $100 An Hour Playing With Puppies At This Job
Even if you have a job you actually love going to every day, sometimes you hear about a position that sounds so good, you have to stop and think about applying for it for a second. And today, that job is getting paid to be a “Puptern” where your sole job responsibility is to play with dogs all day. Oh, and it pays $100 an hour. Dream job, right?
MUTTS Canine Cantina, a dog friendly bar, restaurant and dog park in Texas, is looking to hire their first ever “Puptern” this fall. The gig is pretty simple - play with puppies all day, greet MUTTS members and pet their dogs. And MUTTS sounds pretty cool, it has an off-leash dog park with special areas for big and small pooches, a bar and restaurant - for the humans - and they have “pawties” and events for dogs and their owners, like the upcoming “Pupsgiving.”
“There aren’t many opportunities out there that pay interns to strictly play with dogs all day long,” explains Kyle Noonan, co-founder of MUTTS Canine Cantina.”Typically, there may be other responsibilities that come with the job, but not this one."
To qualify, applicants must be 18 and willing to relocate or commute to the Dallas-Fort Worth area for the internship. To apply, post a photo or video to your Instagram explaining why you’d be the best Puptern and tag @MUTTSCantina and use the hashtag #MUTTSpuptern in the caption. Applications accepted now through November 12th. Good luck!
Same Sex Couple "Carries" Same Baby
A same-sex couple is believed to have made medical history after they both carried the same baby. Ashleigh and Bliss Coulter, from Mountain Springs, North Texas, underwent the revolutionary fertility treatment called Effortless Reciprocal IVF.
The procedure, which allowed them both to be involved in bringing their child into the world, is half the cost of traditional IVF at $8,500. Eggs were taken from thirty-six-year-old Bliss and fertilized with donor sperm in the lab then the embryo was then placed inside Bliss for the first five days. After the five days, the embryo was removed and placed in twenty-eight-year-old Ashleigh.
The couple then welcomed their 'perfect' son Stetson in June this year. He was born healthy at 8lbs 4oz.
