Big news in the snack world: Pop Tarts has unveiled its new flagship store in New York City’s Times Square — and a new taste sensation: Pop Tarts sushi. You’re on ideas fire, Pop Tarts!
What is Pop Tarts sushi? It’s minced bits of Pop Tarts wrapped in Fruit-by-the-Foot. Basically, it’s our wet dream of a snack. The snack scientists over at Pop Tarts have come up with around 30 new tarty treats, all of which combine the delicious high-fructose corn syrup-infused breakfast treat with surprising ingredients (Pop-Tarts Ants on a Log, anyone?).
The store will also feature Pop-Tarts themed light shows and Pop-Tarts video games, all of which we’re sure will be highly instructional. [NY Times] Keep reading »
Much has been written about the new Forever 21 in New York City’s Times Square, but here are the deets one more time: four floors, 90,000 sq. ft., 151 dressing rooms, and more cheap fashion than most teen girls can fit in their closets. Clearly, it goes without saying that this is a store that’s not safe to visit if you’re a person who hates crowds or desires a calm shopping experience, as Forever 21 will be overrun with tourists, ransacked clothing displays, and lines that never end. But that’s not all. The real shocking news comes thanks to the visitor statistics, which attest to the fact that this Forever 21 is going to be a claustrophobic’s hell. While the Statue of Liberty welcomed 14,000 people on a daily basis last July, Forever 21 is expecting to see 100,000 shoppers walk through their doors. Every. Single. Day. Talk about terrifying. The only saving grace is that the store is open until 2 a.m., so if you’re desperate to shop the wares when you’re in town, we’d suggest becoming a night owl. Good luck. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Choosing a wedding dress is something a lot of women obsess about because they want their day to be the most memorable of their whole lives, or whatever. But when someone offers to pay for the wedding and honeymoon, the dress becomes less important…for some people. Take Jennifer Cannon. She donned a dress made from Charmin Ultra Soft and Ultra Strong when she took her vows in a Charmin-sponsored wedding. That took place in a public restroom. In Times Square. Considering the materials that were used, the dress is actually pretty amazing. Not to mention soft on the tush! [Dlisted] Keep reading »
