'Christmas Tinner' Is An Entire X-Mas Dinner Stuffed Into A Can
First, there was an entire Thanksgiving dinner in a tin. Now, there is a 9-layer Christmas dinner in a can.

Each can consists of nine layers of some of the most popular holiday dinner dishes and have you covered from breakfast to dessert.
Inside you will find scrambled eggs, bacon, turkey, potatoes, gravy, mince pie, Brussel sprouts, parsnips, roasted carrots, stuffing, and Christmas pudding.
Why would someone make this? The creator had gamers in mind, who just can't stand to be pulled away from their new games.

Report: Facebook Gave Tech Giants Access To User Information
A new report claims Facebook had arrangements with some of the world's largest tech companies that gave them access to its users' personal data.
The “New York Times” report says Netflix and Spotify had an arrangement that gave them the ability to read Facebook users private messages, and allowed Microsoft's Bing search engine to see the names of virtually all Facebook users' friends without consent.
Facebook also reportedly had arrangements that permitted Amazon to obtain users' names and contact information through their friends, and allowed Yahoo to view streams of friends' posts as recently as this summer. The arrangements were reportedly found in hundreds of pages of Facebook documents obtained by The New York Times from records generated in 2017.
The social media giant denied, last night, that its partners misused the information it had access to, but didn’t address the fact that these “partners” had much wider access than originally thought. Some companies good go as far as delete private messages of users if they wished. More than 200 companies were labeled “partner.”Source: NBC News
Starbucks Is Expanding Delivery
Starbucks started testing delivery via Uber Eats earlier this year in Miami and Tokyo, Japan and things must have been successful because now they’re expanding the delivery area.
The coffee giant recently announced that nearly a quarter of their U.S. stores will start offering Starbucks Delivers in early 2019. With more than 8,500 company-owned locations across the country, we could get over 2,125 delivery locations in the coming year. And that means you could soon be sipping your Frappuccino without even having to leave home.
The FDA Warns Us Not All Glitter Is Edible
‘Tis the season for baking and since “The Great British Bake-Off” has everyone inspired to create their own amazing confections, the FDA is back to remind us how to safely bake with glitter. In case you didn’t know, not all decorative dusts and glitters we find at the store are meant to be eaten. So before you sprinkle that disco dust, twinkle dust or shimmer powder on your sweets, here’s what you need to know.
The FDA warns that even some decorative glitters promoted for use on foods may actually contain ingredients that we shouldn’t be eating. The good thing is, it’s pretty easy to figure out what’s safe to ingest and what’s not. Anything that’s edible is required by law to include a list of ingredients on the label, so flip the package around and if there are no ingredients, DO NOT eat that stuff.
Products that are meant to be consumed will probably say “edible glitter” somewhere on the packaging and will contain common ingredients like sugar and cornstarch. And please remember that just because something says ‘non-toxic” doesn’t mean it’s edible. Same goes for anything that says “for decorative purposes only” - don’t eat that stuff. Sure, it seems obvious, but a little reminder never hurt anybody, especially around the holidays.
