    Meow the force be with you.

  4. Mohawk Storm As You’ve Never Seen Her Before…As A Cake Pop

    om nom nom

    I'll admit, I'm not one for cake pops, too sweet for my tastes, but even if I did eat them I couldn't bring myself to consume these. Behold! Punk Storm cake pops from Kitchen Overlord (they've got a handy how-to on their site). Now I'm imagining them flying through the air. Previously in X-Men

  6. Candy Crush Saga Owner King Finally Stops Trying to Trademark the Word “Candy”

    This calls for a rousing chorus of celebration from the Lollipop Guild.

    After provoking the ire of pretty much everyone on the Internet (not that they hadn't already provoked it with their incredibly addictive, impossible-to-beat game), the company behind Candy Crush Saga appears to finally be backing off from the ridiculous trademark petition it first applied for in February of last year.

  8. This Website Lets You Make Your Own Candy Hearts, So We Made Some Nerdy Ones for You

    You're welcome.

    Rejected candy hearts are all the rage this Valentine's season. Well, you know, and every Valentine's season since the invention of the Internet and terrible jokes (whichever came first).

  9. Things We Saw Today: Wow, I Didn’t Know There Are No Female Characters In Adventure Time!

    Things We Saw Today least that's what you'd think if you looked at McDonalds' line of Adventure Time Happy Meal toys, which has only male characters and is marketed "for boys," while the Paul Frank monkeys are "for girls." Princess Bubblegum, Marceline, Lumpy Space Princess, etc. must have been figments of my imagination this whole time. (Serious Eats)

  10. Science Has Created Candy That Protects Your Teeth, All Things Are Possible

    No, it's not Grillz.

    We would have settled for candy that wasn't bad for your teeth, but that wasn't enough for Christine Lang of the biotech company Organobalance. No, Lang and her colleagues decided that candy should make up for its years of causing cavities by actively preventing them, and they've finally achieved their goal. Take that, parents everywhere.

  11. Candy You Probably Won’t Get Trick-or-Treating Tonight

    We ate too much candy.

    Yesterday the Geekosystem team took a field trip to Economy Candy here in New York City. It specializes in odd and vintage candy you're not likely to find in most places. We stocked up on sweets that people probably aren't going to be handing out for Trick-or-Treat tonight, and after tasting them that's probably for the best.

  14. Alien PEZ Dispenser is Not a Real PEZ Dispenser, But Should Be

    eye candy

    I know, I know there's no practical way for this PEZ dispenser to have another, tiny PEZ dispenser head that extends when you open it, offering tiny PEZ, but rationality has nothing to do with my desire for an Alien Queen PEZ dispenser.

  16. 15 More Branded Candies Google Can Use to Name Their Next Android Systems

    The possibilities are endless! Right up until about the Q.

    Not only is Android's newest operating system named after an already existing brand name candy, but they've actually teamed up with Nestlé to cross-promote Android and Kit Kats at the same time. So what comes next? Hopefully this list of ideas will give Google a headstart on which companies they should go begging to once the hubub over KitKat dies down.

  17. 9 Swear Words Spelled Out in Gummy Candies Because Why the Hell Not

    George Carlin would be so proud. My parents, probably not so much.

    Today the Geekosystem crew got lunch together at a local deli, and I found a bag of alphabet-shaped Haribo gummy snacks. Naturally we decided that the best course of action was to spell out as many curse words as we could and share them with all of you. Isn't that nice of us?

  18. Frequency of Candy Consumption Not Linked to Obesity, Suggests Study Funded by Candy Lobbyist Group

    This news is much more palatable if you imagine that the candy lobby is being run by Oompa Loompas.

    According to a recently published study in Nutrition Journal, frequency of candy consumption is not linked to obesity. If that's not a shocker, they also suggest it isn't linked to other health risks such as heart disease. In related news, there is no conclusive evidence to suggest that there is any correlation between interacting with water and getting wet. Feel free to eat as many Snickers in your bathtub as you deem fit, safe in the knowledge that you are the pinnacle of health and dryness.

  19. If You Smash a TARDIS Piñata, Does it Make a Candy Crack in the Universe?

    The World Doesn't End Because the Doctor Dances

    And on the other side of that candy crack, is there a Candy Kingdom? Because I want to go to there. Mostlymade's TARDIS piñata features a hatch on the bottom and a pullstring, just in case you don't want to smash up your lovingly made TARDIS piñata and don't care that you're completely ignoring everything cool about piñatas (blindfolded violence) and also the opportunity to restage Van Gogh's exploding TARDIS painting with candy instead of fire. Here's the making-of of this cardboard construction.

  20. This is Clearly the Best Way to Throw Out a Box of Candy [Video]

    Creating a domino-style chain reaction from candy boxes is the least efficient way we can think of to throw something in the trash, but it also has the virtue of being the most efficient way we can think of to get fired from your part-time job at a movie theater. So...partial credit? Watch and decide for yourself if it's just stupid, or so stupid it's brilliant.
