New Reese’s Cups Let You Choose What You Love
What’s your favorite part of a Reese’s peanut butter cup? No matter whether it’s the sweet chocolate or the slightly salty peanut butter filling you’re a fan of, there’s a new Reese’s cup made just for you. The candy company is coming out with two new limited-edition varieties of the beloved treat sure to please both camps.
The “Chocolate Lovers” is made with a higher proportion of rich milk chocolate and a thicker chocolate shell, while the “Peanut Butter Lovers” is filled with even more of that peanut buttery goodness and the top layer of the chocolate coating is replaced with a peanut butter candy shell, but the bottom stays chocolate, so you still get that Reese’s taste. Both lovers options will be available starting in mid-April, but grab them when you see them because they’re only around for a limited time.
- And if you happen to be in New York City today (March 26th) or tomorrow, check out the “Reese’s Swap Shop” where you can taste test the new Lovers Cups. It’s on Canal Street and fans can swap any treasured items, like old skates or an old stuffed animal, for a Reese’s Lovers Cup.Pretty sweet deal!
New M&Ms That Taste Like Nutella Are Coming
We all have our M&M go-tos when it comes to picking out our favorite variety. I’m a peanut M&M guy myself, but I have friends who swear by pretzel M&Ms and even more who love the mint ones that come around every so often. There’s a new kind of M&Ms coming for us, though. Stoners, rejoice! Because it could absolutely change the game for your snacking habits.
M&M actually announced their new Hazelnut Spread flavor back in September, but a press release last night confirmed that it wasn’t all just a beautiful dream. The Hazelnut Spread M&Ms – think normal M&Ms filled with a Nutella-like substance – will be coming for us in April. No April Fool’s joke here! It’s really happening, guys.
The good news doesn’t stop there. The new flavor will appear in bright blue packaging, so you won’t be able to miss it. On top of that, it’s being introduced as a permanent flavor, so you won’t have to worry about falling in love with them and having them ripped out from under you with the change of season. The buzz about the new flavor is already deafening.
Study: Most Guys Are Attracted To Women Like Their Mom
According to a new, slightly creepy study, most men seem to want a partner who is basically a lot like their mom. The research from eHarmony finds that 64% of men are actually in a relationship with someone who shares many personality traits with their mother, and apparently, that’s totally normal from an evolutionary, psychological point of view.
“It’s well known that we tend to migrate towards people who share similar traits with us and, to varying degrees, we seek to recreate aspects of our original relationships with our parents,” explainsRachael Lloyd,relationship expert at eHarmony. “With moms as our primary caregivers in life, it’s no surprise men are attracted to women who possess similar values.”
So guys tend to like girls with traits their mom has, including tolerance, views on monogamy, and agreeableness. But it doesn’t just stop at personality traits. Previous research has found that some men are attracted to partners who share physical traits with their mothers - as in they look like their moms.Urszula Marcinkowska, an evolutionary psychologist at the University of Turku, explains that since mamas are our earliest and closest contact, she becomes the “visual template” men seek out. And that may make sense from an evolutionary standpoint, but it would still be creepy to have a girlfriend that looked a whole lot like dear old mom.
Nine Labor & Delivery Nurses At This Hospital Are All Pregnant Right Now
When a couple women who are related or friends get pregnant at the same time, people may joke that “something has to be in the water.” So at a hospital in Maine where nine nurses who all work in the labor and delivery unit are all expecting, there is definitely something in the water up there.
A photo of eight of the nine moms-to-be who work at Maine Medical Center showing off their baby bellies has gone viral because it’s a pretty rare sight to see. All of the women are due between April and July and one is expecting twins. The women say it’s great having so much support from their fellow pregnant coworkers.
"It's really nice coming to work and seeing other people who are just as pregnant and watching their bellies pop,” nurse Amanda Spear explains, “and just talking about these experiences that we are going through together.”
And being that their job is helping other moms bring babies into the world, the nurses plan to be there for each other’s deliveries, too. Nurse Samantha Giglio says, “It’s comforting knowing we’ll be taking care of each other.” Now that’s teamwork!
Instant Karma For Thieves Who Siphoned "Gas" From Bus: Karma is alive and well. Just ask these people who thought siphoning gas from someone else's vehicle was a great idea. Seems that a group of gas siphoning thieves from Australia were hard at work when they came across a big tour bus during the night. All appeared to be going to plan for our group right up until the moment it went wrong, so very wrong.They managed to get the hose in and start sucking to bring out the gas, only to realize too late that they’d put their siphoning pipe in the wrong place. Instead of sucking gas from the bus, they began the process of siphoning straight from the sewage tank. Police discovered the unsavory mix-up when they found a discarded cap next to the bus which had none of its fuel stolen. The owners of the bus said they have no interest in seeing any of the stolen property returned. Karma took care of the rest.
Dating Trends: Flashpanning
We’ve got good news and bad news about the latest dating trend. It’s calledflashpanning, but if you’ve been a victim, it probably wasn’t for very long. The whole idea is that a flashpanner will come on pretty strong at first, but one day, they’ll suddenly cool off, and may even ghost you. They burn fast and bright, and they’re gone in a…say it together:flash.
The phenomenon usually happens with people who love the initial spark of a new relationship,but quickly get bored. It’s all about wanting to keep their dating life new and exciting without ever actually making a long term, day-to-day commitment. Kind of crappy if they don’t disclose their intentions right from the beginning.
Sounds like someone who just wants to mess around, but it’s not quite that simple. The flashpanner is someone who really enjoys the initial boyfriend/girlfriend stuff. It’s all about going on the dates, being super intimate, complimenting the person you’re with like crazy, until one day…POOF. Don’t like it? DON’T DO IT EITHER!!
