Sweet Things In Life: Call Cookie Monster, Maybe

10 Jul

Every day, we see something that grabs our attention. Maybe it’s a Bill Cosby look-a-like or two squirrels gettin’ it on. Whatever the phenomena, we take out our fancy phones and snap a picture (or five). Sweet Things In Life is a special blog posting dedicated to those moments in my dessert obsessed life.

If you haven’t heard the catchy (and kind of annoying) “Call Me Maybe” at least once, then I highly suggest you crawl out from under that rock. The pop song from Canadian Carly Rae Jepsen has been a staple and birthday parties, ball parks, and even bars this summer. Hundreds, if not thousands, of people have covered the tune, from Justin Bieber to the Harvard University baseball team.

While these parodies have been pretty funny, none have been as amazing as Cookie Monster’s cover, “Share It Maybe.” After all, this blue Muppet managed to change the lyrics AND reference cookies. Any song that does that lifts my two thumbs up.

Sweet Things In Life: Play Gear

26 Apr

Every day, we see something that grabs our attention. Maybe it’s a Bill Cosby look-a-like or two squirrels gettin’ it on. Whatever the phenomena, we take out our fancy phones and snap a picture (or five). Sweet Things In Life is a special blog posting dedicated to those moments in my dessert obsessed life. 

When I’m not writing about all things sweet, I’m working at a toy magazine. I know. It’s pretty sweet. Because of this, I get to see and play with products before they hit the stores.

Today I came across some sweet (literally) toys that I think every child should have this summer.

Ice Cream Chalk from Rose Art

Ice Cream Chalk from Rose Art

This sidewalk chalk from Rose Art looks so good, you almost want to eat it. . . and some little kids will probably try. Aside from its adorableness, the chalk is cheaper than regular ice cream (only $5 per set) and won’t give your child diabetes. Win, win, and win? I think so.
